Lexington cottage description

This lake house takes your breath away when you enter the front door and catch a glimpse of the lake through the 3 picture windows in the living room. Set down your bag of groceries on the granite counter in the kitchen and go out on the lanai to catch the breeze off the lake and see the sailboats and jet skis crossing the water. Ah, you made it to the lake!

The three comfortable bedrooms and two full bathrooms offer plenty of room for a party of six. Two rooms have a queen bed, and one has two twin beds and each room has a TV with remote control. We also have two air mattresses if you have a couple extra kids. The house is perfect in any season - in summer you can swim off the dock or the beach. In the off-season the two fireplaces are a lot of fun. There is a stone fireplace in the living room and also an outdoor fireplace in the patio area. Both are very beautiful and will be part of great memories. The living room has a nice 46' HDTV and comfy seating. Let us know if you are going to bring your own boat and we will move our boat to give you plenty of room. We have a boat ramp and a nice, new floating dock.

                            We rented Snug Harbor to attend a graduation for our son at Fort Jackson near Columbia, and this vacation rental was perfect for us! With so much space, my husband and I, our other two children, my parents and his parents were able to stay in complete comfort and enjoyment! We didn't get to spend as much time at the house as we would have liked, but the time we DID get to spend was maximized by the house's excellent features and amenities. We enjoyed a fire nightly in the living room and one on the outside patio . . . very enjoyable, particularly for the older parents! As far as being stocked with all those "little" items (ie: toilet paper, paper towels, saran wrap, foil, condiments, spices, etc.) this place was THE BEST, and we've rented so many houses over the past several years. This location is about a 50-60 minute drive to Fort Jackson, but it was really inconsequential to us . . . even the teenagers. THANK YOU, Mr. and Mrs. Keenan, for all the "extras" you did for us both before and during our stay!

                            Our family has stayed at Snug Harbor 2 times, we love this place. It is so nice and everything is always perfect. We had the honor of meeting Andy on our last visit. Andy is great, so nice, had a wonderful day with him. The views are great, and the deck in the back is where we stayed. We played games, fished and rode the boats. And oh the hammock next to the lake ( you wont want to get out of it ) is out of this world. The neighbors are also very nice. You would have to come stay to see for yourself how great this place is. We will for sure be staying there for many years to come. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

                            Our family and another family stayed at the Snug Harbor home back in August 2013. I'm just delayed in providing my review. We enjoyed the house and with 4 kids and 4 adults there was plenty of room. We went to a nearby grocery store (15 min) away to get groceries and really didn't have to venture out much after that (on Sunday you have to venture further if you wish to purchase beer or wine). The pantry space is limited so you do have to get creative with storing your food items or just use the counter. We rented the pontoon boat one day, but it wasn't running the best and we spent most of our time going very slow to avoid having the engine cut out. Andy was extremely helpful and he only charged us for the gas. However, since the pontoon is a much older boat, the gas is about the same if not more than the boat rental. On the 2nd day, we ended up renting a new pontoon boat from the marina near by and gas was half the price simply because it was more efficient. The kids loved it and had a blast tubing and fishing. We were practically the only ones on the lake that day. There are great restaurants on the other side of lake that are definitely worth the boat ride over. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and having the dock was excellent as well. The kids fished and jumped off the dock plenty! The duck hatched her babies while we were there so the kids had fun seeing that. Would recommend it as a nice lake getaway.

                            Snug Harbor is user friendly. Everything you could possibly need is there, including spices for cooking!!! The owners have thought of everything. My husband and I enjoyed eating breakfast on the patio while watching the sunrise over the water, and dinner cooked on the grill while sitting by the outdoor fireplace. I spent my days reading on the hammock or out on the bench by the water. We spent our nights watching movies with an indoor fire. My husband got a few good naps in as well, lol. My husband and I absolutely loved staying at Snug Harbor. We recently had a baby, and to get away for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary after 3 months of waking up in the middle of the night for baby feedings, was priceless. Snug Harbor is a great getaway. It's peaceful, calming and exciting al at the same time depending on what you want to do. There's options for swimming or fishing as well. It would be great for a family as well because it's spacious. I would definitely recommend this rental and I look forward, as many other guests have said, to coming back soon.

                            Snug Harbor was an excellent experience for my family. The location of the home was perfect, tucked away just enough to have that vacation feel but still be close to town in case you need anything. The home was beautiful and the view was amazing. Our daughter had such a great time swimming and playing with the ducks. My family has decided to make Snug Harbor our regular summer vacation home.

                            Snug Harbor was the perfect cottage to spend a weekend fishing. Was on Lake Murray for a two day tournament and Snug Harbor was a very clean and spacious cottage with a beautiful view of the lake. Kathy was very accessible when we had questions, and there was plenty of space for our truck, boat and another car. Looking forward to next years tournament and staying in Snug Harbor again.

                            Absolutely gorgeous location on the lake; beautiful house and responsive owners! Couldn't ask for better. We'll be back - for another reunion! Thanks for making such an atmosphere available. All weekend long my classmates and I were amazed at the natural beauty and the comfortable accommodations - including the tremendous back patio...wow!!! Friendly neighbors and private boat ramp were added extras. Can't wait to get back!

                            What a place! Snug Harbor was, by far, the most relaxing vacation spot of all the homes I have rented. The house has everything you need and then some. We loved just sitting on the porch, there are 2 to choose from, and watching out on to the lake. What a beautiful view. The guys liked being able to rent the boats and go fishing. We didn't make it to Bomb Island to watch the birds but we will make an effort to see them next summer when we come back! The kitchen was well stocked and the beds, including the pull-out couch, we're all very comfortable. Andy and Kathy were there, easy to contact, for us to ask any questions we had. Thanks Andy, for all the fishing tips and pointers for the boys. We all enjoyed talking with you and Kathy. The fishing was a little off but the boys are used to salt water fishing, not lake fishing. The ducks were fun to watch and we all enjoyed taking turns getting their food out for them as well as feeding the fish. You'll have to keep us posted about the baby ducks. There were 13 eggs when we left. We all enjoyed swimming in the lake. It was so relaxing. This was a vacation!!! All of us hated having to leave this home away from home but we had to return to reality. Thanks again Andy and Kathy for sharing this great home with us. We'll see you next summer Snug Harbor!!

                            We live 2 hours away on Lake Hartwell - so vacationing at a nearby lake makes little sense - EXCEPT that we wanted a house where our family could all be together for a family wedding weekend - the wedding events spanned locations from Lake Murray in Chapin, to a church in Lexington to a reception in Columbia. Snug Harbor exceeded our expectations to say the least. We were even able to accommodate our 8 month old granddaughter there with games and toys, newly hatched baby ducks - t was absolutely enchanting. Despite being a holiday weekend (Memorial Day) it was cool enough to use the outdoor fireplace to cut the chill we experience by insisting we take in the full moon over the lake. Fish food, duck food and a personalized name sign on the front of the house - the owners thought of EVERYTHING. Family members visiting from Raleigh thought we OWNED the home! It was just lovely - we'd do it all again in a heart beat. Thank you so much!

                            What a great place to stay! Andy and Kathy had everything you could possibly need to make you feel right at home. The house was very neat and clean and the views from the picture windows were just phenomenal! We were in town for an Alabama Softball Game in Columbia but I think we all had more fun just being at the house sitting by the oudoor fireplace. I can't wait to come back for a visit soon. Thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Andy grew up in South Carolina, knows all about Lake Murray, fishing, and duck hunting, and loves taking care of Snug Harbor. Kathy works at the University of South Carolina, and used to be a travel agent, and will handle your booking professionally.

                          Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
                          We bought this vacation home on Lake Murray because we love boating and swimming in fresh lake water. Going to the lake is such a stress reliever! The fishing is great - the bass fishing is great in the spring! You can catch catfish and bream and perch right off the dock. And yes, we have a large cast iron pan for fryin' them up.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The outdoor fireplace and the patio are so relaxing and the porch is a cozy place for your morning coffee or a cool drink. The living room is very large with a vaulted ceiling and 3 big picture windows that bring the lake right into the room! In the evenings you can curl up on the couch and read from our library or watch HDTV or play games (we have lots of games!). And the strolls around the neighborhood are great!
