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.

                      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!
