Once you read this description, please call me at 803-804-3278 for the easiest way to reserve my home. I travel so much every day so I don't get on this site much to revise the calendar. It may be available for the time you want. Don't wait though. The best times book months out. Call me to find out. VRBO makes it harder now to contact you, so call me and lets make it work. I want you to enjoy my home. Come enjoy the most luxurious home on VRBO. Enjoy quiet tranquil moments on the screened in porch reading a great book or watching the ducks play less than 50 feet from you. Rock in the rocking chairs. There's a wonderful swing beneath the shade of the oak tree to watch romantic sunsets with your sweetie. For an additional fee, I have a 30feet long plush pontoon that I can cruise you around the lake. Inside enjoy the gas fireplace or a whirlpool Jacuzzi bath in a tub large enough for two with candles for that perfect romantic evening or personal enough for just yourself. There are two in my home. Pop open a bottle of wine and celebrate what's really important with the ones you love. We want to help you. There are excellent restaurants less than five minutes away. There are things to do within 30 minutes of the house. Are you looking for the perfect place to enjoy a romantic weekend, wedding, family reunion, family vacation, leaf, fish and bird viewing, Carolina football weekend, Carolina Motorsports Park, Carolina Adventure Park, office getaway in a luxurious home on Lake Wateree for 2 days, 3 days, week or more.. This is my lovely private residence that boasts Granite Countertops, Marble showers and bathrooms, hardwood flooring throughout to alleviate allergies. 10 feet ceilings with large crown molding and scalloped ceilings. Cherry, mahogany and Leather furniture, Four large King Beds, One great queen bed, There are two large whirlpool tubs, one of the tubs is built for two people and is great for candlelit romantic bubble baths. The other is on the upper level and is great for a bubble bath and reading a book or listening to your favorite tunes or watching the stars. Both tubs offer great views of the sky yet offering privacy as well. There is an extra large kitchen with cherry cabinets and all modern appliances, but you would probably have more fun grilling outside on the large concrete patios looking at the lake. There is a gas grill already for you to prepare your delicacies. The Master bedroom, Living Room, Dining area, and Kitchen all face the lake for maximum enjoyment. Enjoy the wonderful late afternoon breezes on a completely screened 60 feet long porch with four ceiling fans on the lake side. Many people fall asleep enjoying the rockers and gliders on the porch. There is a gas fireplace for cool winter evenings. Rekindle your love life watching the sunset on the dock and the moonlight glistening off of the water. Use from 1 to 5 bedrooms. There is also plenty of room to add air mattresses for additional people. The screened porch with the wicker couches provide a great place to sleep. There are two large leather sofas and two large leather recliners for napping. There are three tubs and four showers. Three of the showers are step in showers with only a small 3 inch ledge to step over. Most closets are large walkin closets. The water level is perfect for children and adults alike. The depth at the edge of the yard is normally 3 feet. At the end of the dock it is 4 to 5 feet. I keep a ski boat or pontoon around the dock almost all of the time. The water continues to gradually get deeper to the middle of the cove. There is a private 60 feet long boat dock that has plenty of room for boats and sunbathing. There are ladders to get in and out of the water. Breathe easy as this is my private residence and the house has never been smoked in. All smokers must smoke outside and use a container to dispose of their own cigarette butts. Improper disposal will result in loss of deposits. No pets are allowed on the premises but there are some great boarding houses close by. No pet is allowed in any part of the residence. this includes the basement. The above ground 'basement' is great for family gatherings, wedding receptions, church gatherings/baptisms, music shindigs or to entertain. It is 1800 square feet unfinished. On the occasional rainy day, this makes a great area for the kids to entertain themselves. Young and old alike love the two person swing under the large live oak tree. There are old fashioned rocking chairs to take you back in time to the simple pleasures of life. There is also a relaxing glider on the porch. You are less than four miles to five excellent economical restaurants and two convenience stores. You can reach three of the restaurants with bars by water. The main floor of my home is 1800 Square feet with 1200 square feet upstairs. The total size of the house is 4800 square feet. There is so much to do on the lake. The yard is perfect for entertaining. It is relatively flat. You can install canopies or sit under the large oaks There is also so much to do off the lake. You are 20 mins to Columbia, Camden, Elgin or Ridgeway SC. You are one hour to Charlotte, NC. There are excellent churches of every denomination within 20 mins of my home. There is shopping galore. The Sandhills Shopping district is just 20 minutes away. There are antique shops in Historic Camden. Golf is everywhere around us. Movies, Ice Cream, Nice restaurants, Fast food, The beaches and mountains are just two hours away. There are museums and historical sites surrounding my home.

About Chuck Carland

Hello, Thank you so much for considering my property. I travel a great deal and my home doesn't get used like it once was. I announced Nascar races for 30 years. I built this house about 13 years ago. I have been on my own for six years. This home is too nice for one guy to stay in all of the time. I'm 53 years young and try to take care of items. I have an electrical engineering background and designed and built most of this house myself. To learn more about me and see videos call me 803-804-3278 and I will give you my website. I am also available to play music or deejay a special gathering for your family. And I'm also happy to tour you around lake wateree by a 30' pontoon

Chuck Carland purchased this estate in 2003

Why Chuck Carland chose South Carolina

This is my private residence. My lady lives on the other side of the lake. I love the home and hope you will too. It is made for the romantic visit, or the family reunion. Nicer than almost every other home on the lake. You can rent cheaper but you will get what you pay for. Spend a little more and make your lady happy. The value will be worth it.

What makes this estate unique

This home feels like a vacation all of the time. You must experience all 4 seasons on this lake. I own a sign and lighting business so I have installed some neon palm trees and flamingos to light up the front of the house to give it a festive 'vacation beach like' feel. Since I announced Nascar races and my nickname was 'Trouble in Turn 4', there is a sign with that resembles Bristol Motor Speedway on the roadside of the house. It looks great illuminated at night. Come enjoy the festive activities that make lake living so much fun

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have so many wonderful families stay at my home. They have become part of my family as well. Many have become facebook friends too. They take great care of my home. I have visited them at my home and at some of theirs. All deposits have been returned to families that take great care of my home. I am learning to only rent to families, not people coming in for the weekend to just party. That group of renters left trash, strange beer in the frig, tried to bring more people than they had on the contract, and broke two plantation blinds that cost me $110 in materials. If items are broken or trash left, then there will be a reduction in the deposit returned. I haven't had to worry about that before. Even that renter got half of his deposit back, but shouldn't have. This is wonderful home to enjoy in a great neighborhood. If you plan to take care of a great home and have a good time, then call me and enjoy my home. If you are looking for a place to party with a roudy crowd, please look at others on vrbo.

Do NOT Rent from this individual

  • 1 of 5

Do not RENT this house or any house associated with this individual. It took over a month to receive our deposit back, which only half of the deposit was returned. Upon receiving the partial refund on the SD were we notified of the "damage" in a letter stating he had to replace blinds that were broken. No prior phone call was made to discuss any issues or damage to the property. He also said we left trash onsite. I know we did not leave any trash because I personally put every bag (of ours) in my truck. The trash in his dumpster was from his cleaning people who cleaned the house before we arrived. No mention of any damage was ever mentioned during the month long wait for our deposit. If I had not stayed on top of emailing and calling and texting the owner, I may not have seen any deposit money returned. We left the house in better shape then we arrived.

There was no propane in the grill, we had to go spend additional money to refill the tank. This owner was just trying to make extra money on the rental/home. We did not damage the house at all. I REPEAT DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PERSON! IT WAS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO GET MY DEPOSIT MONEY BACK AND HE ONLY RETURNED HALF!!!! He is not an HONEST PERSON!

BEWARE he has other properties on this lake for rent as well. Do yourself a favor and rent from an HONEST person!

Perfect Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent our 25th wedding anniversary at this home and it was GREAT! We also took my mother and our daughter and still had PLENTY of room. The fishing was INCREDIBLE!! We had a boat that we docked at the house but our best fishing was done from the pier connected to the backyard. We caught almost 100 fish on our trip and well over half from the pier! My 16 year old daughter caught over 20 fish just from the pier. This one is truly a LUXURY home. 4 LARGE bedrooms and 3 FULL baths are only the beginning. The Master Bedroom is a tremendous luxury suite in and of itself with a large KING sized bed, 2-person beautiful Marble shower and a 2-person Jacuzzi tub. When I say a 2-person shower, I mean a huge shower with two shower heads on either side of the shower. INCREDIBLE! Our favorite time of the day was getting up in the morning and sitting in the screened-in back porch area that goes the entire length of the house facing the water. We had an unbelievable, unobstructed view of the lake which had a slight mist on it and fish eagerly jumping in the morning just waiting for our bait. Every morning was a peaceful, quiet and incredibly relaxing way to start the day. If you are looking for the PERFECT spot this is the place to stay.

If you want to do a day trip getaway, you can go to Myrtle Beach in two hours. You can go to the montains with waterfalls and the Biltmore house in two hours. You can go to Carowinds Theme park in one hour. You can go to Carolinas Adventure Park in 30 minutes. You can go to one of the worlds largest collections of historic Guns from the 1400s to present day, including guns from gangsters John Dillenger, Pretty Boy Floyd and many many more. The gun collection is my friends on display in Camden Museum. He will give personal tours if time allows. The Camden Revolutionary battlefield is less than 30 minutes away. Antique shopping and one of the largest Equine horse facilities is about 30 minutes away. Carolina Cup and Colonial Cup Horse races are less than 30 minutes away. Carolina Motorsports Park is about 40 minutes away. You can go to Charlotte Motor Speedway and raceshops in 90 minutes. You can go to University of South Carolina in 45 minutes. You can go to Carolina Panther Stadium in one hour. So so much to see and do. There is also a 6 person Hot tub on the property Call me If there is something you like to do. Its probably available close by. Also, I know and have been to most of the things I've listed. I would love to help
