This lakefront cabin and lot is a charming and rustic setting, perfect for a vacation, honeymoon, or weekend get-away. Located about 20 minutes from Camden, the setting is serene and peaceful. The water is lovely and clean - ideal for swimming and fishing from the dock. The house accommodates four people. There are 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, a studio with 2 youth beds, living room, fully stocked kitchen, dining area, small bathroom, and magnificent front porch. There is a spacious deck with built-in benches and posts for securing boats. There is a 'party' shed located right on the water's edge for grilling and relaxing. Picnic tables are abundant in the party shed and in the yard. There is also a hammock for naps on the water's edge.
The former owner, Jak Smyrl, was one of South Carolina's most noteworthy artists. He worked at the 'State Newspaper' for many years, designing cartoons, and bringing humor into people's homes with his varied features. His drawing table is still in the studio. The McKissick Museum, South Caroliniana Library, and the Camden Arts Center have all held exhibitions of Mr. Smyrl's work. Mr. Smyrl was recognized for his contributions to the State by the South Carolina Legislature. Mr. Smyrl's great love of life - and all of his fascinating interests and hobbies - is evident in the house. Here you will find art work, books, and charm galore!
This cabin is comfortable, homey, and an artist's paradise! The small deck (off the screened-in porch) is 'furnished' with one of Mr. Smyrl's hand crafted tables and benches and is the perfect place for drawing and sketching.
Here, you see will see a great variety of bird life. There are numerous aquatic birds, song birds, owls, etc. The large lot is fenced with a split rail fence so there is abundance of privacy.
The water is clean so swimming off the end of the dock is excellent. Throw in a line and catch bream, catfish, etc.

About: My husband and I own several properties which we rent as vacation rentals. We like peace and quiet and unique places. We are both native South Carolinians and have traveled nearly every square inch of the state. We think the Lake Wateree property is just about the best vacation spot on the face of the earth!
Why Lake Wateree: This cabin was build of reclaimed timbers from a 100+ year-old farmhouse. Decorated with antiques, art work, and charming vintage pieces, you'll feel like you've stepped back to a slower and more peaceful pace of life. You can see the lake from nearly every window in the house. The owners enjoy cooking so the kitchen is fully stocked with lots of extras. Dine inside or on the screened-in porch. Here, you will find all the comforts of home in a really beautiful setting.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Swimming is terrific. Take your own canoe over to one of the three islands nearby. Enjoy a watermelon in the party shed! There is a wonderful vintage porch glider on the front porch. Enjoy its squeak while you watch the shore birds!
For your convenience, there is wireless internet and a landline phone. There is a large television set w/DISH t.v. service.
