Located at Thurmond Lake, SC on the Savannah River and lakes, and in the Sumpter National Forest area, Savannah Lakes Village is an active community with no age restrictions, although made up of a number of retirees. You can be as busy or relaxed as you choose to be.
The house is a one floor ranch style on a private cul-de-sac street, with a deck and fenced yard.
In addition to the two championship golf courses (restaurants; full service bars);(as guests of the owner,both golf courses may be played: 18 holes with cart for $46); very close by is the golf course at Hickory Knob State Resort Park with cabins and restaurant, also Baker State Park adjoins Savannah Lakes, and just over the bridge in Georgia,is the Elijah Clark State Park.There are plenty of boat launching ramps, but any boat on a trailer must be small enough to be kept in the garage except when trailering to launch! Within easy walking distance is the Activity Center which houses a large heated indoor pool, spa and sauna, outdoor pool, excellent workout center, tennis courts and bowling alleys. There is a resort type complex on the lake beachfront available for all to use along with the beach club. There you will find the marina and sand beach. Pleasant walking or bicycling all around.
All of the major church denominations are present in McCormick. The weather is very comfortable in Spring and Fall, and the Summer is what you would expect for the Carolinas at that time of year (warmer).
There is a modest fee for the Activity Center and of course for golf.
No motorhomes or trailers of any type are allowed on the property at anytime as per property owners association rules.

We are a retired couple, originally from Eastern Long Island, NY and now living in Maine most of the year.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
we live in Maine, and have visited and rented in South Carolina over many years; we have found Savannah Lakes Village to be just right for us.
Activities ,Church, weather, neighbors and neighborhood, golf,fishing,walking,hiking swimming and boating.
We are a retired couple that went to visit family in Augusta but wanted our own place to enjoy some alone time. This place was perfect ..... affordable, clean, well maintained, lots of amenities, nice neighbourhood, great golf courses and recreation centre nearby, 1/2 hour drive to Augusta. Thurmond Lake and this part of South Carolina offers the outdoors enthusiast unlimited options.
The owners were excellent to deal with. We would highly recommend this place!
We needed somewhere nearby to stay while we were having our floors redone. The owners are very nice and the house was great. We enjoyed kayaking at the lake and swimming in the huge community pool. We also enjoyed shopping in Greenwood. When it was time to go, even my doggie didn't want to leave. Thanks again for everything!
We stayed here for a week (early April 2015) while attending the Masters. It was a little more driving (to/from Augusta) than I cared for, but it was a great value. Everything was as advertised and pictured in the ad, and the owner was very accommodating and great about following through on our various requests. Not luxurious, but the house was very clean and orderly and provided everything we needed. Beautiful piney woods with three 18 hole golf courses nearby: the Monticello (in Savannah Lakes Village) was quite nice; the Tara (also in SLV) was in rough shape; and the course at Hickory Knob State Park was in really poor shape. It is, however, in a fairly remote, rural area with limited choices for shopping, restaurants, etc. All in all, however, I was quite pleased with the rental.
My family and I have rented properties for years in different areas, and this is honestly the nicest rental we have ever been in! The place is huge and so much more beautiful than the pictures show. The living/dining area is the best, with a high ceiling and wide open space. The kitchen is also beautiful, with granite countertops and really nice ceramic tile. The fridge is huge and the oven with ceramic top is in perfect condition. The kitchen was also better stocked than any rental I've been in, complete with tons of spices for cooking. We brought our dogs with, and that, too, was incredibly accomodating for them. The fenced-in backyard was massive - it's probably twice the size of my own backyard. We also found 2 doggie beds under the master bed, which they loved. Plus, when we arrived there was a basket of dog toys just waiting for them to play with. How sweet was that! The closets were stocked with everything you could possibly need, including tons of toilet paper, a first aid kit, a dozen bars of soap, a heating pad, and even an extra toothbrush! Then, there was the 2-car garage complete with door opener to use while you're here. The garage was also huge, and even had extra paper supplies out there if you needed them. Oh, and the master bed - it was one of the most comfortable I've ever been in! I simply cannot say enough about this place. The owners obviously care about making their guests comfortable and accomodated, and giving them a home away from home. Also, the home is located within an easy walking distance to the recreation center, which has a lovely indoor and outdoor pool, a ping pong table, tennis courts, and even a small bowling alley. Just be aware, though, that you do have to pay a $3/person/day fee for use of the facilities, plus extra for tennis and/or bowling. The town of Abbeville is very quaint and has some cute shops - about 30 min away. There are some great hiking/biking trails in the state parks which surround the area. The town of McCormick (where the home is located) is very small but has some small restaurants and stores, including a Food Lion. And you have to try Michelle's Pizza in the middle of town - absolutely the best pizza I've tried in a long time! All in all, this is simply the best rental I've ever been to. I can't even believe it was so reasonable for all that it offers. I highly recommend!
As others have pointed out the photo does not do justice to the house! it was perfect in every way. we had our 2 sons stay with us for 3 days of that week and the house accomodated us all. It is the perfect location for golfers and our next visit will focus on the wonderful fishing opportunities that exist in this area! The owner is very accommodating and we have already recommended to friends that they book a stay.
