  • Excellent get away!

    "My husband and I are locals and were looking for a place that allowed us to get away from it all while still staying close to work. This cottage was perfect! The lot is huge and it's almost like having your very own lake. The cottage is rustic yet clean and still pet friendly. All of the appliances were in working order and the beds were super comfortable. The dock is amazing! I am an absolute novice at fishing but still managed to catch a good number of fish. There is a built in picnic table mid-dock with an umbrella that offers much needed shade. After an evening of fun on the lake we grilled out on the gas grill and then roasted marshmallows over the fire-pit. I hope you enjoy the cottage as much as we did!"

  • Perfection!

    "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!"

  • Great week at the Lake

    "First of all...the owners were responsive on any/all issues as well as compassionate and forgiving. When we found out that the owners have multiple properties we feared that any issues would not be quickly addressed (not true) or that when we had a miss-hap that there would be no leniency (also not true). The lake was great and although we failed to catch any fish, that was not the focus of our time. We spent most of our time on the watercraft and swimming in the cove. We did not have the best weather, but that's mother nature. The cove remained quiet and perfectly suited to just hang out. The fire pit was actually the highlight for our two boys (10 years old and under). Having the large deck and dock will keep you busy outside. The wifi was strong and quick. Television stations were plentiful. Kitchen was well stocked and we didn't want for anything. Everything worked as it should have. The selection of kayaks plus jet ski and pontoon left us feeling like we conquered Lake Murray (we also brought our own floats and inflatables). Would not have changed our trip but good to know: 1. It's a good distance to the water from the house. There is a gravel driveway that will get you down there if you must drive. It is a bit of a grade but we had no problem walking it multiple times a day. When we had a full cooler or day's worth of supplies, we were happy to have a car option to help carry the load. 2. If you plan to spend most of your time inside, the couches aren't the most comfortable and the living room could get cramped if you have a full house. This was not an issue for us...we only had 2 adults/2 kids there full time and 2 add'l adults part time. Besides, we were there for the lake and were only inside when it rained or when we were exhausted. (all the other rooms were plenty big even if you were at capacity) 3. Gasoline for the watercraft. Let me be clear, the owners provide high-end gas cans which provides you an opportunity to save money by being self-service. The gas station is close so the drive is not an issue. All that being said, you will be surprised how much gas is used having fun! Multiple trips take a lot of work, the gas cans are tricky to operate alone and when it is all done you may wish you just pulled into a marina and paid someone else."

  • Terrific Summer Vacation Rental

    "With 5 grandkids, two of their friends, and 5 adults, we all managed with a little help from a few air mattresses. The house is located near the point of one of the many fingers leading into Lake Murray. From the swimming pool, to the dock for fishing, to the 24 ft Sea Ray that the kids were on three times a day every day, there was never enough time in the day to take a breather. Everything you could need for food preparation was there. The Jenn Air grill was used several nites to feed the hungry troops. The Theater Room with a popcorn machine was the best for the kids in the evenings after dark. The swimming pool was big and clean and kids had a blast when they were not on the lake. The two gals who helped with the operation of the house and boat were the best. If we had a question or problem, they responded immediately. We would definitely recommend this for any family gathering and will look forward to returning. Thanks"
