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.

We rented this cottage for my husband's 30th birthday and I can't say enough about how perfect it was. The owner was wonderful to work with (even though we were a last minute rental) and the property was in great condition. The furnishings were high end and everything was very clean. You cannot beat the quality anywhere on lake murray! This place is even better than the pictures!

After a long 14 hour drive with rain, fog, and wind our arrival at the Cottage was a relief. When we walked in it felt like being home. Sparkling clean, warm, and cozy. All new appliances, and every piece of kitchen ware you would ever need.for cooking, eating or drinking. Beds were comfortable and bath area was great with two bathrooms. The view off of the deck was delighful and in the evening and setting on the dock in the quiet watching the sun go down created memories for a life time. Dreher Island Park was just three miles or so away where we spent several hours and from which I fished a Bass Tournament. Chapin, a town close by had a great Italian resturant and a Barbecue Buffet just a mile further down the road. I would highly recommend this property if you enjoy quiet evenings, lake area, and warm and cozy place to stay. In conclusion, Brittany, one of the owners was wonderful in answering all our questions, communicated quickly and accurately about the property and things to do near by.

Thank you so much for the awesome weekend at Lake Murray! The house was wonderful and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for our stay and it was very clean and well-maintained. The location was perfect...we were close to town which was convenient, my husband was just a few miles from Billy Dreher State Park where he had a fishing tournament, and we were only a short drive from The Rusty Anchor restaurant at Lighthouse Marina where we enjoyed a fabulous evening. It was a great weekend!
