Overview

Camden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 max) Non-Smoking

This is an updated house on a perfect lot that really offers all the best aspects of being on the lake. The views are absolutely awesome, and there is a great beach and plenty of lakefront, very close to the house. The whole lake experience is very integrated with the house and the outdoor living areas. Kayak use comes free with the house, and boats are available for rent close by.

The house itself has an open plan in the main room, with spectacular views from the kitchen, dining area, and sofas. There is a large deck which feels very open to the lake and yard. One bedroom is at the back of the house and does not have a lake view. It has an en suite bathroom with shower and bath. This is where the laundry is located as well. Both bedrooms have queen beds. Both beds have duvets with covers that are laundered after each guest.

The second bedroom faces the lake directly and has a glorious view through the large sliding doors. There is nothing better than leaving the sliding door just slightly open so you can hear the lake lapping from the bed. It has the main bathroom beside it which is also accessible from the living room. The main bathroom has custom tile and decorative concrete counter tops. It can be closed off or opened up to provide a full lake view from the Jacuzzi tub and rain head shower. (Don't worry - boaters can't see you - we have checked!)

The loft is small but cozy. It has two twin size mattresses that can be put together or kept apart. It is perfect for children or romantic couples. Access to the loft is via a ladder in the hallway so it is not perfect for older couples, or young children. The loft also has a sneaky view of the lake through a sliding window. Please refer to the pictures, the ceiling is low, but not claustrophobic! There are 2 windows and a skylight.

Inside the house there is a stereo with Bose speakers and flat screen TV, along with wireless internet. We do not have cable, but do have a smart TV with over 300 internet channels available. The kitchen is simple but well appointed, and has been updated with granite counter tops. There is a great breakfast bar area along with a big farmhouse style dining table, all with great views of the lake.

Outside is where the place comes into it's own. The lake, dock, and sandy beach are just a few feet from the house. There is a great hammock out front as well. The beach area includes a stone patio and fire pit (that we built ourselves) It's a great place to enjoy smores or drinks by the lake.

*** Sorry, no weddings, receptions, parties, or family reunions.

*** Non-shedding dogs only with prior approval and pet fee.

*** No Smoking.

Keywords: Beautiful house on one of the best lots on Lake Wateree. Sunsets are really spectacular. Dock, beach etc. Stone patio and fire-pit on the beach are really nice. Two bedrooms plus loft. Loft is small but cozy. Two full baths including Jacuzzi tub with lake view.

About Amy Crump

We own an outdoor living company in Charlotte called The Stone Man.

Our job is to create beautiful (mainly stone) outdoor living areas for homeowners. We both love the outdoors which is why Lake Wateree is so perfect for us, and our 2 dogs Molly (shih-tzu) and Pip (havanese)

Amy Crump purchased this house in 2007

Why Amy Crump chose South Carolina Lakes & Blackwater Rivers

We wanted a place where we could escape the traffic and hustle of the city, but not have to drive too far to get there. Lake Wateree is perfect as it is only an hour from our home in South Charlotte.

We enjoy the feeling of calm that we get as soon as we get down to the country roads and beautiful surroundings.

While we were dating we spent a lot of time at Lake Wateree so it is a special place for us.

What makes this house unique

One of my (George) favorite things to do is to get up early and sit outside with a cup of tea as the sun comes up. It comes up behind the house and lights up the shore on the other side of the lake first. It is a very peaceful time regardless of the time of year and a great time to see some wildlife. We have bald eagles, osprey, and lots of herons and smaller birds. There is also abundant fishing.

After a nice breakfast (preferably on the deck), I might take a kayak ride across the lake. It is undeveloped opposite our house, so is a great place for the kayak. If it is windy I might take out the sailboat, or perhaps go for a run or hike on the country roads.

Lunch is usually on the deck, and might be followed by a spell lazing on the floats in the water by the beach.

We make a habit to watch the sunset every night from the dock. It sets right in from of the house all year, and the colors on the water are spectacular.

Sometimes we will go into Camden for dinner, but just as often we will have dinner on the deck so we can enjoy the lake some more.

Overall,. The house was spacious, clean and inviting. Enjoyed inside and out after day on water.

  • 4 of 5

The house provided everything one would need for an awesome stay on the lake. I will say, the walk from the house to the dock was a bit steep,. And for anyone with lots of gear, injury or just plain old in age,. This can be challenging. For boaters,. The dock was sufficient,. However could use updating. Tie off cleats seem to spaced a bit far apart. Also water very shallow. The house I would rate 5 out of 5. The dock and steep slope 2.5.

Fun, relaxing, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Was just as described in the listing. The owner was very helpful and got back to us immediately. We would recommend this property to others. One of the nicest rentals we have stayed at. Listening to the waves ripple on shore was so relaxing. The unobstructed view had to be one of the prettiest on the lake. Very comfortable home with lots of sliding glass doors and windows on to the lake. Very clean pretty colors throughout. Our dog loved the grassy lawn to play in. We found great restaurants and a couple of really good bakeries in Camden and a good restaurant within 10 minutes of the home. Would come again! Thanks!

Loved our stay so much we purchased a lake home

  • 5 of 5

The lake home was all we asked and more. Loved everything they had done inside. We enjoyed the beach and fire pit. So relaxing and what a view. The only little thing missing was a king sized bed. My husband is 6'2 and would have enjoyed a little more room. Overall, a wonderful time.

Fantastic Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here for a long weekend, and this was the perfect spot! Since it's spring, we had both rainy weather and beautiful sunshine, and this house was the perfect place for both! All of the floor to ceiling windows made the house cozy during the rain, and the beautiful sunshine gave us a beautiful way to wake up. The beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were updated in a lovely way, and the layout and decor were perfect. We were close to both downtown Camden and the Springfield Racecourse for the museum, and we loved exploring the town and great restaurants. We look forward to planning our next weekend at this lovely home!

Map

Car: necessary

Lake Wateree is the best of all worlds for lake recreation. In the summer it is busy at weekends and holidays with skiers, jetskis, boats, and lakeside restaurants. You can rent your own pontoon boat at Lake Wateree Marina! In the off-season it is wildlife lovers refuge. Bald eagles, osprey, herons, and abundant fishing. On a typical week visit you'll get both the quiet of the weekdays where you have the whole lake to yourself plus the fun of Friday - Sunday where you can watch all the boats. Our house has a perfect sunset view every day of the year, with wonderful light playing across the lake. We recommend watching it from the dock with a glass of wine!
