There is a large, flat, grassy area to play some badminton or other dry land games. A basketball hoop and a horseshoe pit are also set up for your convenience.

Our family would like to thank Ken and Pat for extending us the use of their lovely lakehouse. It was the perfect setting for our small family reunion and week long getaway. The house was roomy, comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the watercraft as well as the front porch and side yard. It made for a perfect vacation and we hope to enjoy their property in the future!

This cottage was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We loved the wake free cove, sandy swimming area, the floating trampoline, having the use of the kayaks and canoe. The grand girls loved fishing right off the dock and the grandparents loved the early morning and evening loon visit.The owners were lovely people to work with and patiently answered all of our questions.

This is a delightful, well-kept cottage. Owner has done a really nice update, and the wake-free cove is tucked in away from the main boating and watersports action out on the lake. Really enjoyed the kayaks and swimming area. Kitchen area and outdoor grill were both great and put to good use. Probably not ideal for a toddler given the set-up of porch and dock (loved it, but lots of steps and drop-offs), but a wonderful spot for a family w/o young kids. Highly recommended!

What a great place. Our entire family enjoyed our stay. This as a great location on the lake and offers a quiet, peaceful, and picturesque setting. The perfect escape from our busy lives. Our kids 5 & 6 loved swimming right off the dock and riding the paddle boat and canoe. The owners were also a pleasure to rent from and left information on attractions and restaurants in the area. A big thank you to them. We hope to visit again, soon!

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We purchased this property in 2007 and completed renovations in April 2009. We love the relaxation and quiet of the no-wake area where the lakehouse is located. We have four children ranging from 11-23 and there's plenty to do for all ages. We especially like the no-wake zone we're located in so our younger kids can take out the canoe and paddleboat and enjoy fishing in our private cove. At night it's very relaxing either sitting around the campfire or rocking on the chairs on our front porch overlooking the water. Mornings are beautiful as you wake up to the sun rising over the water.
Why the Owner Chose Waterboro:
Our main home is 25 minutes away from our Lakehouse so it's easy to go up and spend a nice, quiet weekend and reconnect as a family. We wanted something off the main lake but close enough to take the boat out and enjoy some tubing or knee boarding on the main lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views are spectacular from inside and outside of the lakehouse. It's peaceful and quiet and you feel like you 'can get away from it all and relax'.
