About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8-10)

This house, built in 2006, is located 1 row off of Lake Murray on a ½ acre lot. It features a wrap around porch with a side ramp, making it easily accessible to the handicapped. It is located 0.3 miles from a private park that features a boat ramp, fishing dock, family swimming area, playground, and a covered picnic area. It is located on a private cove perfect for skiing, tubing, knee boarding, and fishing. The park is only accessible with a key, which we make available to those who rent this lake house. This house is also located 2 miles from Dreher Island State Park. Lake Murray is considered one of the best lakes in the nation for large mouth bass and striped bass fishing. It is also a great place to have a family gathering and enjoy the lake environment.

This Lake Murray getaway features ceiling fans in the living room as well as all of the bedrooms. It includes a spacious eat-in kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen table comfortably seats six people. Located off the kitchen is a utility room equipped with a washer and dryer. The kitchen opens up to a den which includes a spacious sitting area and a 26-inch flat screen cable television with DVD player. It also features a queen sleeper sofa. The master bedroom includes a queen bed with a wardrobe dresser and a 26-inch cable television. A full bath off of the master bedroom features a large Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. The second bedroom includes a queen bed, mirrored vanity, and dresser. The third bedroom includes a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on top. The second bathroom is shared between the second and third bedrooms although the second bedroom features a private entrance.

Chapin has nice community theaters, restaurants, parks, and more. Food, shopping, and entertainment galore at Columbiana Center Mall on Harbison Boulevard in Irmo are only 25 minutes away. Riverbanks Zoo, considered one of the top 10 zoos, and downtown Columbia is only a 25 minute drive. All Gamecocks’ sports are as close as thirty minutes away. Several golf courses are located in Chapin. The Augusta National Golf Course, which is where the Masters is held when it is in town, is only 90 minutes away.

About Kelvin Oglesby

Our family inherited this lake house from our beloved Papa. We currently live in Jackson, SC but always enjoy spending time at our lake house. My wife and I love to visit the lake and enjoy its beauty while our two children love to take the boat out and go tubing, swimming, and fishing. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

Kelvin Oglesby purchased this house in 2006

Why Kelvin Oglesby chose Lake Murray

Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood where anyone can go jogging, walking, or biking. The lake is within walking distance and hosts a multitude of wildlife. There is a park with a playground and a swimming area available for children to enjoy. There is also ample room for a boat if you wish to bring yours and parking for several vehicles.

What makes this house unique

Our home is not lakefront but you can't find a better location. The house is surrounded by beautiful shady trees and the front porch is great to sit on in the quiet of the evening or share a cup of coffee with that special one while snuggling on the swing in the morning. All of the window valances, dust ruffles and most of the comforters are hand-made by my wife and daughter. Our home makes a great retreat to escape the stress that so many of us have in our everyday lives.

The house was very nice and comfortable.

This was a great place to stay. The house was nice and well equipped with everything we needed. The area is beautiful. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. We would definitely stay again!

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, quaint home! We stayed here for a family wedding on Lake Murray. We had a great time and enjoyed the convenience of the proximity to the wedding events. Will definitely return during a summertime to enjoy the lake.
