Lexington house description

This is a perfect place for a quiet get-a-away or wonderful alternative to a required hotel stay.

Due to the setting it's best:
-for 1 or 2 people
-couple with a baby
-corporate stay in the Lexington area . (rowing
machine to help you stay in shape.)
-snowbirds in transit or scoping the area
-visiting family in the area, but prefer your privacy

Sorry, but there is no place to dock a boat or park a trailer. If you are renting a boat for a day, then check with the owners about a temporary dock .

If you stay a week and could leave the lake, it's two hours from Charleston, SC. Downtown Columbia is 35/40 minutes away and the zoo (30 minutes) State Museum and children's museum are well worth the visit. Restaurants and many shopping choices are in Lexington which is an 18 minute drive. A few restaurants and grocery stores are an easy 10 minute drive from the guest house. Most renters prefer to shop prior to arrival.

TWO KAYAKS are available to enjoy our large cove or to explore Shull Island.

Accommodations: Den and kitchen with island on one floor. Downstairs 600 sq. ft. with a queen bed and sitting area. Sleeps 2- one queen bed downstairs.

Three large windows overlooking the lake. We have all new appliances, including granite counter tops and HD TV with Dish Satellite.

There is a deck off the lower level for enjoying the lake view and for kayak or swimming access.

I can send more pictures if needed.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My husband, Andy, is a retired airline pilot who flew for Pan Am and then Delta Airlines. He commuted to NY in order to live on the lake. He is now a golfer and can gladly help you with any area golf questions. I am a former French teacher and will gladly help you with lake questions or anything else.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
                  My husband cut 100 trees from our property in 1993 and started a 'project' with the lumber he had from the trees. He had planned for it to be a place for projects. Hence-part of the reason for the bathroom upstairs. He would work a while and then quit for a year or so. We finally decided to finish it as a guest house in order to use it for our own personal guests. We have another vrbo on Lake Murray and enjoy sharing it and lake information. That helped us decide to use the guest house as a vrbo also.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Use the private dock for grilling or just relaxing by the lake. Some just enjoy the beautiful view from inside the cottage. It is a large space for 2 people-Quiet and cozy. Perfect for relaxation! The kayaks are such fun.
