Lexington cottage description

Start planning your Spring and Summer getaway now. Enjoy Lake Murray in our cozy cottage located in the Gilbert area. A tranquil lake front vacation setting right on “big water” lake front. This 872 sq. ft., open floor plan retreat has a large, wood burning fireplace, and comfortable furnishings. Relax in the sunroom or on the deck; look out at Lake Murray drinking your favorite beverage...deep water and fantastic lake views await you and offer a front row seat to the beautiful sunsets over the lake.

The cottage is situated in a quiet cul de sac with plenty of room for off road parking.

This is a great place for a family getaway, a fishing trip, romantic week away, a home away from home while visiting your University of SC student...or as a guest house for extra company! Come swim or fish off the dock or bring your own boat. A boat ramp is on the property for small boats to launch from and a public boat launch is located a short distance away(Larry Koon Landing). The dock stretches far into the lake and features a fixed deck perfect for sitting, dining, swimming (steps lead right down into the water), cleaning fish etc. A floating dock offers boat docking on 3 sides. A lakeside fire pit is the perfect place for roasting marshmallows and enjoying lake breezes. A place to truly unwind, our darling cottage is a place of refuge, renewal, escape and simplicity.

                Great small clean house with a great view and all the wood you need for the fire in the pit by the lake or fire place. Spent Thanksgiving with family, two outside grills a real plus including propane and charcoal. The heated sun room had plenty of games, puzzles, and books. House has DirecTV with plenty of channels watched Carolina destroy Clemson. The owners Kim and Adam were very understanding about having children in the house, Thank You!

                This lovely lakeside cottage was everything we had hoped for! Extremely clean, comfortable, and like a home away from home. With a beautiful dock from which to fish, a large fire-pit, and a spacious deck with all amenities, we had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing sunshine filled fall weekend. Plus NFL Sunday ticket! The owners were very accommodating, were a pleasure to deal with, and communication was flawless. As a first time user of a VRBO, I had my reservations but couldn't have been more pleased with the Morelands and their lovely oasis. It was wonderful to spend Veteran's Day at the lake with my 22 year old son who just recently arrived back home from Afghanistan. We just left and are already looking at the calendar to plan our next visit. Thank you, Kim and Adam!

                The cottage was very neat and clean. Good location. Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful lake view and a great multipurpose dock, which we used often. Definitely returning next year. Thank you property owners for sharing your terrific little getaway cottage, it was greatly appreciated. :)

                We enjoyed our stay and definitely would like to return. It is right on the water. Nice dock, deck, sunroom, etc. The house was well stocked, clean and well-maintained. The owners were great to work with and answered any questions I had. It was a nice get-a-way. Look forward to our next vacation here.

                My husband and I just had the most wonderful weekend at this cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed having our wine on the dock benches every evening to watch the sunsets and loved having coffee on the deck each morning to watch the sunrises. It was very quiet and comfortable at this cottage. The photos are accurate and the cottage is clean and well-stocked. We intend to go back!

                A buddy and I have rented this cozy cottage twice now, April and June. As you see from previous reviews, it's VERY quiet out there, you are in a neighborhood but it is so tranquil. And the view from the porch, deck, dock are TRIPLE Tranquil. So relaxing. Water is clear, dock is huge, perfect for chillin. Just an all and all great experience, kitchen is stocked well, beds are comfortable. a geat spot and Lake Murray is really nice lake - no weeds, muck, no bugs to speak of, water stays level.

                The Memorial Day weekend getaway to the lake Murray Cottage was wonderful. The cottage has large open areas, nice screened in porch and deck and lots of good seating and sleeping arrangements. The location on the lake was great and easy to get jet skis in and out of the water. We had different family and friends drop by to spend some time and that was good for my ill father. And some guests really enjoyed the variety of DirecTV channels. We would definitely rent again and recommend to others.

                We were very pleased with the location and outdoor space at this cabin! The view was spectacular! The fire pit was perfect, right next too the water, framed beautifully with rocks, and the giant pile of wood provided was very plentiful and generous. Although there are neighbors, we didn't see anyone for our entire stay and it felt like we were on our own little peninsula! We were also very pleased with the cleanliness of the cabin, the beautiful fireplace inside, the sun room stocked with games, puzzles, and books, the huge dining room table, the necessities provided (including propane AND charcoal in plentiful amounts), and the wonderful owners. We can't wait too get back out to this little slice of heaven!
