Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2-1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Come enjoy some 'down time' and 'recharge' at Lake Murray! Fish from our dock, paddle around in our canoe, or rent a jet ski or boat and get out on the water! Grill up your fresh catch on the deck and or sit back and relax on the screen porch overlooking the water and dock.

This open floor plan home was built in 2007 and outfitted with all new furniture in 2010. NEW CARPET was installed in all bedrooms for 2017. The master suite is located upstairs and features a queen bed, a cedar lined dresser, satellite HDTV, Blu ray DVD, and a sitting area overlooking the lake. The master bath has tile floor, dual sinks, a soaker tub, separate shower, and a walk-in closet.

Down stairs you will find a high ceiling great room with hardwood floor connected to a dining area and full kitchen with an island bar. Above the gas log fireplace is a satellite HDTV (1080p) with Blu ray DVD and surround sound system. A comfy leather sofa and love seat with built in recliners will let you relax while enjoying a movie from our DVD selection.

The gathering height dining table will seat 8, and 5 more can sit at the kitchen bar.

Two down stairs bedrooms featuring a Queen and a double bed with trundle are connected with a 'Jack and Jill' full bath with double sinks.

Two sliding glass doors open from the great room on to the deck and screen porch with views of the shared dock and lake. A full laundry room and 1/2 bath complete the down stairs.

This house has a paved driveway off a paved street in a nice neighborhood. A well kept lawn with sprinkler system will have you going barefoot and relaxing as soon as you get out of the car!

About Steve

Our family enjoys water sports and we have friends with weekend or permanent homes in the near-by area. I am a relocated mid-westerner who has been in South Carolina over 30 years. When out-of-town family and guests come to visit, we wanted to provide a place to stay that was relaxing and not so intruding on our permanent home. We furnished and appointed this house as we would for our best friends. I know that you will enjoy staying here also!

Steve purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Steve chose South Carolina

Lake Murray is the closest major lake to our permanent home. The lake level is well maintained as compared to Lake Strom Thurmond (Clark's Hill). The house is located away from the congested traffic of down town Lexington, and away from the high density boating areas near the dam, yet we have easy access to town when needed.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the smooth waters of the many nearby coves for wake boarding and skiing. A public boat ramp and picnic area are also close. Dreher Island State Park is a short boat trip away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is beautiful and is everything we could hope for. You have far exceeded any expectations we had. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated.



Your kitchen is amazing. We enjoy cooking and appreciate the large variety of cooking paraphenalia you have supplied.



We are travelling with kayaks, bikes and binoculars. We went for a sunset paddle last night and today walked your neighbourhood for an hour in search of birds. We actually found a couple of species we have never seen before (brown headed nuthatch and horned grebe, if you're at all interested).



Already this has been a wonderful vacation, and it has just begun.



Thank you so much for listing with VRBO. Otherwise we would never have found you and your delightful home-away-from-home.

Great house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what we were looking for! Newer, spacious, nicely decorated with views of the lake from entire back of the house. Plenty of seating in the dining and living areas and additional chairs on the screened porch and large shared dock, which had plenty of room for our boat and the boat of the guests staying next door. We frequently fished and swam off of the dock in the cove. A boat ramp with some parking was just a few minutes away, but the driveway had plenty of room for our truck and boat trailer and other vehicles. The owners also provided linens, paper products and essential kitchen items so that we had everything that we might need during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! Thank-you!
