Chapin house description

Gazebo on a peninsula with 790 ft shoreline. You must see the gorgeous view to fully appreciate this property! I can gladly send you more photos of the home. I think reading comments from past guests is the best way to help make a decision. Relaxing, piece of heaven, retreat, lovely are some adjectives used.
Newly redone master bathroom and floors in all but bedrooms.

You may not want to leave to visit the many activities that are nearby. The wildlife is incredible to view and there is always fun activity to watch while sitting in the gazebo by the lake or the deck by the house. Only 10 minutes (speed boat)-20 minutes (pontoon) to see the 750,000 Purple Martins roost each night on Bomb Island during the summer months.

Can use Crooked Creek in Chapin for tennis, gym basketball etc.

Guests love the privacy of the property and the 2 kayaks that are available for use.

You may launch boats on the property. Fishermen would enjoy some of the most renowned bass fishing in the nation. Boat rentals and launching sites are nearby. We are 10 minutes from Billy Dreher Island.

You can choose between relaxing on the deck or going down to the gazebo by the lake.

There is wi-fi on site and Dish Network with 2 High Definition televisions.

We enjoy cooking and if you do, we have supplied some spices that you may want to use.

It is two hours from Charleston, SC, approx 1 hour and 15 minutes from The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National, 3 minutes to Timberlake Golf Plantation, other golf courses 20 minutes away (Golf is a bargain in this area). Mountains are 1 1/2 hours drive. Come see your favorite graduate at Ft. Jackson(40 min. away) the University of SC (30 min.). Many choices (museums, theatre, zoo) are in Columbia, SC just 30 minutes away. Riverbanks is one of the top 10 Zoos in the US. ,

                      On the property you have 2 kayaks. There are also a few games and puzzles. People have left blow up toys and floats in the storage area. You may rent a boat very close by. You may launch a boat, usually up to about 22 ft., from the property.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My husband Andy and I live on Lake Murray and absolutely love it! Andy was a pilot for Pan Am and then Delta and commuted to New York in order to live on the lake. He now is a golfer and can gladly help you with any area golf questions. I am a former French teacher and love to be in or on the lake. If you don't have a boat, my arm could easily be twisted to take you for a ride.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chapin:
                      We had been renting it as annual rental since 1991 and decided to do VRBO. It's been fun! We travel and have always loved staying in Bed and Breakfasts. This is the next best thing as we aren't tied down to daily work, but have the joy of providing to renters, what we think is special. We love telling people about the lake and area, but most people do not want to leave the relaxation of the water and house.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      All guests comment on how much they love the gazebo, which is right beside the lake. Renters who bring boats, love being able to launch boats from the property and park their trailers. There is a lot of room for kids to play & big 'kids' games. Sun rises are spectacular.
