About Annette

We bought this house as an investment and have really fallen in love with it. We live very close by and love the lake living.

Annette purchased this house in 2011

Why Annette chose Lake Murray of Richland

I love living on the lake and bought this lakefront property because it was a precious house with old hardwood floors and character. It is very close to my home, restaurants ands shopping but also on a very quiet cove just around the corner from the big water. You will be 15 minutes from a large mall and 20 minutes to Riverbanks Zoo that rates in the top 5 in the country.

What makes this house unique

You will be able to enjoy your morning coffee on the dock with a view of the water or on the screened porch/deck. There is a large back yard and on a quiet street and neighborhood great for a long walk or run. Dinner on the porch is fabulous and very relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

How wonderful! Thank you for the use of the "little house". It was wonderful. My Mother and I raved on your cottage. We could not have asked for a more lovely place to stay.

The Little House

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at The Little House. It was nicely located, close to grocery stores and other attractions.

The Little House is very clean. We were able to view the eclipse 2017 from the property! That was such a wonderful time! Our little grandson also enjoyed himself.

Wonderful stay, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great location 5 minutes from Lake Murray marina or from town for groceries, etc. Short drive from I26 to get anywhere else nearby. The cottage itself suited our family of 4 perfectly. Two spacious bedrooms plus a bed on the sun porch, plenty of seating in the living room, large screened porch plus deck and a yard leading to the decks on the cove. My son didn't have any luck catching fish but enjoyed trying. Every possible amenity in the cottage was provided for. It is decorated beautifully and felt like stepping back in time in the best possible way. Only wish we had been able to stay longer!

Convenient and quaint!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cottage to attend a wedding in the area. The cottage was super convenient and adorably quaint! Even though it is an older home, it has been updated and thoughtfully appointed. The owners were responsive and helpful, true southern hospitality right down to the fresh hydrangeas in every room!

Aptly Described~Adorable!

  • 5 of 5

Comfy chairs and cottage feel. Annette was not there, but a personal note and personal touches made a great impression. Iced glasses for us in freezer, Kuerig complete with K-cups, towels, beach towels and linens, well equipped kitchen with pots, pans, baking dishes; everything we needed to prepare some home cooked meals. King bed was very clean and mattress comfortable. Bathroom is small, but shower and water pressure is good. More, rather than less, is provided in this VRBO. Kids fished from the good sized dock. Would definitely stay again. Thank you, Annette!

Great for fishing on Lake Murray that is 14 miles by 41 miles. Only 1 and half hour from Augusta National. 20-25 minutes from USC and downtown Columbia so it is great for a football weekend!
