Overview

About the property

3BR, 2BA, Sleeps 8 in beds

***NEW DOCK in 2017!*** Bring groceries, your fishing rod, beach towels, and a need to relax....all else will be here when you arrive. Our motto is "Let us provide the rest." And rest you will get! This home has all you need to have a great time away.

LINENS NOT INCLUDED IN FEES BUT A FULL SET IS AVAILABLE TO RENT FOR A FEE OF $60 which gets left at the house upon departure. Set includes sheets for all beds, bath towels for 8, plus and kitchen towels. They're there if you want them but you can choose to save that money by bringing your own.

Taw Caw Creek is located on the north side of Lake Marion near historic Goat Island in Summerton, South Carolina. Because the creek dates back to the time prior to the development of Lake Marion in 1942, it is virtually stump-free. Lake Marion boasts some of the best fishing in South Carolina and is home to huge catfish, bream, crappie, and record-sized striped and large-mouth bass. BIG catfish are caught regularly from our dock!

Enjoy fishing and water sports on Taw Caw Creek. Bring the boat or jet-ski. There are several convenient boat landings as well as a full service facility, Taw Caw Campground and Marina, right across the creek. For some extra fun, take a short ride down the creek and dock your boat at the Goat Island Resort Restaurant for lunch, dinner, refreshments, and live music. If you like the scenic “big water” of Lake Marion, it is only minutes away.

Care to golf? Foxboro Golf Course, located just across the street, has a “links style” layout with a 3-Star rating by Golf Digest. A fully stocked pro shop and snack bar are on site.

For a change of scenery, Taw Caw Park is just two miles away and has trails, a play structure, picnic shelters and restrooms..

This 3BR/2BA fully equipped home is tastefully decorated and has a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. It’s perfect for a weekend of R&R and/or playtime on the water.

• 1 ½ hour drive from Mt. Pleasant, Exit 108 off I-95N, north of Santee.

About Owners

We purchased the Lake House on Taw Caw so we could enjoy time away as a family while also sharing our slice of heaven with others. Our aim is to provide our guests with a clean, cozy and relaxing home so families and friends can escape the daily grind of work and busy-ness. We installed wi-fi this past year but not because we needed it! We rather enjoy seeing our kids faces instead of the tops of their heads.... Nevertheless, it's there if you need it. You can always "forget" the password while you're there.

Owners purchased this house in 2007

Why Owners chose Lake Marion

The house is situated such that the sun rises just off to the right as you look out over the lake. The forest is protected across the lake so we know it will never be developed. The creek is wide enough right off the dock that kids can ski and tube while grandparents watch from their lawn chairs.

What makes this house unique

We love that the trees in the backyard are the perfect distance to accommodate our hammock - which we leave for our guests to use during their stay. The dock is the perfect place to sit and watch the sun rise with a nice cup of coffee from one of the many cups in our collection.

So peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary at the lake house on Taw Caw and I just have to say we absolutely loved it. The house is wonderful and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful and you couldn't ask for a better location. The dock was perfect for our boat. The owners were wonderful and quick to respond to any questions. There really are no words to fully express how great our stay was. We most definitely plan to return.

Really Nice There ! ! !

  • 5 of 5

I can only rate up to 5 stars? Very few places has a sandy beach for the kids to swim in. That was a perfect idea to build a beach. We had our boat tied off at the new dock- just leave when you are ready! Sweet. I also was trying to rent a place at Lake Marion only to find out that it has stumps and trees in it. (wouldn't want to tear up my boat) Taw Caw is really nice as people are on pontoons, and fishing everywhere.

My grand daughter didn't want to go home. She said we need to live at the vacation home. IF IT WERE MY HOUSE I WOULD LIVE THERE ! (Sorry, no renters)

SO WHY ONLY 5 STARS ? ! ! ! !

Owner's Response: Well, I'd say your granddaughter has the right idea! We were happy to have you and happy to know that you had all you needed. We were glad to share our home with you and so appreciate the good care you took of it. We hope you'll be back… when guests return they always feel more like friends. :-) B.

Great vacation home on Lake Marion

  • 4 of 5

The house is great! Nice open plan with large family room perfect for winding down after a day on the water. The waterfront is a nice clean sandy bottom with gentle slope where we spent most of our time in the water. Brand new dock was great with no worry of splinters. I can say this is one of the best sections of the lake as my family owned a house 5 lots away for about 15 years. We honoured the one year anniversary of my father's death with a vacation to my childhood stomping grounds and the home was a perfect destination. Bass fishing was good and we enjoyed fresh fish for dinner a few nights. You should bring a boat to enjoy the fishing and wildlife that can be found just a short run from the house. a fifteen minute run to the wildlife refuge and you will find the lake just as it was in the 1970's. My daughter got to see her first alligator ( actually several but not near the house) as well as many birds we do not have in Virginia. The owners were very friendly and very responsive even when it took me a long time to return messages. They even called to apologize for the rain and offered a late checkout to make up for 2 days with rain. I will be planning a spring fishing trip and another summer vacation at this house for next year. If you are looking for a place with a wild nightlife, this is not for you. If you want to have a peaceful family type vacation disconnected from life's stresses, this is the place for you. I sent the owners a few pictures of fish we caught and they are welcome to post them.

Beautiful home, and greatest Hostess BETH!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, and Beth has laid everything out to where all you jave to do is read her instructions. She has placed fliers for all attractions in the area and in Charleston. The maps in the home are excellent for a fisherman, too bad I had already brought one from walmart. Beth is awesome and acted as a tour guide and super hospitable. Quiet neighborhood and beautiful sunsets!
