Overview

McCormick Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Our Cabin is a great location for a weekend getaway or vacation. In addition to the lake we have 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, 3 lakeside golf courses, great fishing and hunting. This area is suitable year round. Summer has the advantage of warm water in the lake for water sports but the other seasons have the advantage of pleasant temperatures for all other activities. For details on hiking, biking, and kayaking go to www.littleriverblueway.org

This three bedroom log cabin is located on Lake Thurmond the largest man made lake East of the Mississippi. The cabin has full ammenities. You can launch your boat within a few blocks of the cabin and dock it in the covered dock at the cabin throughout your stay or rent our pontoon boat for only $75/day if you do not have a boat. The cabin is a beautiful two story log cabin in a wilderness setting sitting on 300 ft of shorline. It is 1500 square ft with a large wrap around deck,a 6 man hot tub built into the deck and a view that extends over several miles of lake.

Golfing privileges are availabe for several outstanding golf courses nearby, fishing within a half mile of the cabin is outstanding and there is a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail only a few miles away. Whether you are looking for water sports, golf, a great place for long walks or bike rides, or just a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy this is a great place to spend a week or a weekend. And for Masters fans the cabin is about a 40 minute drive from the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, GA.

Please keep in mind when making reservations for this cabin that it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the lake and is not suitable for groups of more than 8 to 10 people. For example a class reunion or family reunion would be inappropriate. There are numerous state parks nearby suitable for such gatherings.

About The Owner

My wife and I built this cabin in 1988 as a weekend/vacation get away. It has served us well with many great memories. We retired recently and purchased a larger home a mile away which is now our primary residence.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1988

Why The Owner chose Georgia

We chose this area because it's location on Lake Thurmond is one of the best recreation areas in SC. Not only is it on the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi but the fact that only 20% of the lake is open to residential development keeps the boat traffic down making fishing and boating activities much more enjoyable. The lake is not crowded even on major holidays. We are not golfers but this location is also located near some of the nicest golf courses in SC.

What makes this cabin unique

All kinds of wildlife are viewable from the deck of the cabin. Hiking and biking in the development where the cabin is located is great but if you are a real enthusiast a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail has recently been completed a few miles away (www.littleriverblueway.org). Some of the best fishing on Lake Thurmond is less than half a mile from the cabin and if you are a golfer you will not find any nicer golf courses than those accessable from our cabin.

Great "lake life" getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect rustic cabin with view in the lake. A hidden gem. We wanted to unplug for a week and couldn't have picked anything better. Agree with other reviews, if your looking for resort/ high priced hotel, it's not for you. Looking for clean, plenty of space, peace and quiet-it exceeds expectations. Owner is helpful and accommodating. We will be back. Lake is under utilized and I hope it stays that way.

Too short of stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there during Masters Practice rounds. The cabin met our needs. Its location is convenient to Augusta. Lake front provides outstanding scenery and peacefulness. Owner was very responsive and lives nearby. We would have liked to stay longer to further enjoy the lake.

Down Time on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the best way to unwind from a busy schedule. The cabin has it all; a rustic setting, amazing water views and a pontoon boat at your disposal. The best part is the low boat traffic on the lake; it felt at times that we were the only boat on the water. Even our dog made sure he had a good time; either sitting on the large wrap-around deck or swimming in the lake. Be sure to have time to venture out of town (we visited a local distillery) since everyone is very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Weekend at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend in this warm, rustic lakefront cabin. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived! The view is beautiful. This was planned as a fun birthday weekend for our son, but was greatly enjoyed by the whole family! The large hot tub was very relaxing. We had all of the amenities that we needed for a very enjoyable, relaxing weekend getaway. Highly recommend to others desiring a relaxing getaway in a rustic cabin setting.
