Chapin cottage description

Enjoy this lakefront, newly renovated cottage that sits just a few feet away from the shores of beautiful Lake Murray. You can enjoy the relaxing lake view while you also enjoy your breakfast in the upgraded kitchen or while watching your favorite TV show on DIRECT TV.

The house is located on a quiet cove and features a private dock. The open living room features a couch and a love seat with a wood-burning fireplace. The open floor plan leads to the kitchen that is equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops featuring an “eat-at” breakfast bar. The kitchen is fully equipped for a fish fry or lakeside barbeque out on the deck overlooking beautiful Lake Murray. Walk up two stairs to a hallway half bath and two beautifully furnished bedrooms. The first bedroom is a queen bed with a wardrobe dresser and closet. The second bedroom is perfect for a young family with a queen bed, a full size bottom bunk with a top twin bunk bed and closet. The bathroom connects the two bedrooms and features a full size tub/shower with a brand new washer/dryer unit. The linens for the house are provided.

There is a small park at the end of the street with a picnic area, swings and a sloping beach entry into the lake. You can put your boat in one block away at the County Line Restaurant or about three miles away at Dreher Island State Park.

Lake Murray is known as one of the best bass fishing lakes in the country. The lake is forty-one miles long and, in places, over fourteen miles wide. It has over 500 miles of shoreline, and forms an impoundment of over 50,000 acres.

This cottage is about three miles from Dreher Island State Park; so it is perfect for fishing tournaments or family vacations/reunions and is minutes from downtown Chapin which offers great restaurants and shopping. It’s only 20-25 minutes from food, shopping, and entertainment galore at Columbiana Centre Mall on Harbison Boulevard in Irmo, and 25 minutes to Riverbank Zoo and downtown Columbia. It's also great for USC football games and is only about an hour and a half away from the Augusta National Golf Course for when the Masters is in town.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Two young families purchased this unit to enjoy beautiful Lake Murray with our children. We've enjoyed days of cookouts, boating and fishing and look to enjoy this property for many years to come.

              Why the Owner Chose Chapin:
              Our families live in downtown Columbia. Lake Murray is the perfect distance to escape city life while not spending hours on traveling to our relaxing destination for a get-away weekend or even just the day!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We enjoy the local shops and restaurants in downtown Chapin as well as the special dining spots along Lake Murray. It is very convenient to downtown Columbia or Irmo.
