Overview

About the property

Four bedroom, 3 bath ranch home with two master suites and large 18' X 40' pool

This elegant Executive home with two master suites is located in the quaint town of Chapin, SC and is conveniently located within 30 minutes of downtown Columbia with a perfect blend of country and city with close proximity to restaurants, movie theaters, golfing, etc. THE BIG CHILL is appropriately named because of all it has to offer and is the perfect place to 'drop off the grid' for your family vacation. Featuring stunning views of the big lake from a large covered deck, you will enjoy an enormous 18' X 40' in ground pool, boating and incredible fishing for largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, bream and catfish from a 10' X 20' floating platform off the dock.

We also offer, for an additional fee, a 25' luxury pontoon with a Yamaha 150HP motor - perfect for water skiing, tubing, fishing or just a family cruise to one of several top notch restaurants - all only a short boat ride away. This boat comfortably seats up to 12 people with a built in fish finder, GPS to cruise the entire lake without fear of getting lost and a high end stereo system to complement your boat trip. The boat is conveniently moored at the dock in your back yard so it offers a hassle free experience - just load up your crew and take to the water!! For those of you unfamiliar to Lake Murray it is 41 miles long, 14 miles wide at its widest point, covers 78 square miles and has 649 miles of shoreline to explore - plenty to keep you busy for an entire week!

Additional in water amenities included are two kayaks and paddle boards for an early morning sunrise expedition to watch the world wake up. Also local striped bass guide is available and will pick you up on the dock for an awesome fishing experience. (Rocky Bottom Fishing Guide Service - see his Facebook page)

Fabulous and Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for my son's USC Graduation weekend and had a wonderful experience. The house was impeccably clean, well-stocked and extremely comfortable for our group of family and friends. The proximity to downtown Columbia and the USC campus made it very convenient to enjoy the festivities in town, and then escape back to a beautiful and peaceful environment. Would highly recommend this property and the owners/management team who were so pleasant to work with!

It was a fantastic stay. The owners and their daughter were wonderful and helpful!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes on VRBO but the owner Bill and his daughter Ashley were the most accommodating of all. Bill made you feel so welcomed and could not have been nicer. The house had everything we needed and so many extra perks. We had a fantastic time and it was Bill's attitude that made that happen. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being so kind and generous.

Great spot to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a trip and loved every minute. The upgrades on the house were extremely nice. The house was fully stocked with everything you need. It had everything for cooking and grilling. Lots of extra towels for bathing and the pool. It is a place I'm sure we will stay at again. Beautiful views and neighborhood. Very happy with our stay. One of the best houses I have ever rented!

Lots of room and Great Lake views

  • 4 of 5

Older home with lots of modern updates. Great space and lake views. Use of the pontoon boat is an added bonus to explore and visit nearby watering holes. Owners are very accommodating. We will be back!

Ladies Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Enjoyed everyday at the Big Chill! The house was enjoyable and beautiful for 5 ladies to relax, enjoy the lake, built a fire every evening and had fun trying to fish. We shared a lot of laughter and love. It was fantastic! We wanted for nothing! Would definitely return to the Big Chill!
