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)

Beatutiful home, great southern hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation rental home on the lake! Attention to detail in every amenity. Giant pool floats, board games, premium cable channels, Wolfgang Puck cookware, wine glasses, shot glasses, Keriug Coffee maker and more. If you need it, the house has it! Not to mention comfortable beds, large master suites, and great lounge chairs. The owner was FANTASTIC! He met us the day we arrived and helped us launch our boat in the water and helped us get it out the last day. Our only regret is that next year is already booked because we would have gladly returned.

Owner's Response: Jim, thank you for visiting The Big Chill! I'm sorry the fishing wasn't that great - it was sooo hot your week that the water surface temperature on the lake reached 90 degrees. I think the fish were much like us - hang around in the shade and taking it easy. Anyway, please come back to visit us again in the future. Bill and Cindy

Very clean, well equipped with all essentials, and property owners wonderful and easy to contact!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year coming to this wonderful lakefront property! 7 adults and 7 kids with plenty to do for all! Close to a grocery store and restaurants or a nice kitchen to cook in. The pool is such a great addition for when the kids are tired from all the lake activities. The covered porch or gazebo is nice to sit and watch the kids out of the sun. Thank you again for such a relaxing and fun vacation!

excellent

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and 9 family members really enjoyed the stay that we had. The weather was wonderful as well as our hosts, Bill and Ashley. They were great to work with from beginning to end.

It was probably the most relaxing vacation ever. Everything was well stocked and shopping was close by. The tubing for the kids was especially fun as was the fishing My granddaughter said it was the best place that we have been. Hopefully we will be able to return someday!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

If your family is looking for a home that IS what it SAYS - you have found it. Bill and Cindy were so concerned with us enjoying their property that we have EVERY intention of trying to return ASAP. My wife and I along with my mother and our four kids stayed for two glorious weeks. It is the best family vacation (other than Hawaii) we have ever had. Bill met us at the house and made sure every questions was answered. He and/or Cindy were available on a moment's notice for any question. I am seldom impressed. These people and their home impressed me.

Steven Layne - stayed late May and early June of 2017
