"We just rented this terrific home for a week in July 2014. The décor had been updated, the kitchen was very completely equipped and the lawn, dock and beach area were perfect for a family with small children. The house was clean and we had no negative surprises at all during our week. Just a terrific family vacation spot. Oh....and there are views of sunrises AND sunsets...a pretty neat trick at one house!"

"My husband and I came to South Carolina for our sons basic training graduation. We rented this wonderful home on the lake for 10 days :) Such a wonderful and peaceful getaway. It was close to town and shopping but yet private and quiet. The lake is gorgeous and we loved the nature. We would highly recommend this charming home for anyone looking for a safe relaxing atmosphere. :)) The owner was a delight to deal with as well. :) Say hi to the bunnies and turtles for us."

"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."

"We stayed at Ellen and Andy's lake house for a few days, thinking that I needed a few days to decompress before starting a new job. And it was the most "relaxing" time I've ever had in a span of five days! The photos looked amazing online, but it's much better in person. The house was clean and well-kept, and equipped with everything you could ever need (for cooking, barbecuing, and kayaking). Just come with your clothes, food, drinks and great company!
The view is amazing...and sitting on the deck (at the house and at the pier) was like watching a National Geographic show unfold LIVE before your eyes! Since it is on a peninsula, it felt like you were on your own little island! We really appreciated this being from Hawaii.
The owners responded to any questions we had almost instantly about minor issues (TV cable, etc.).
We will be planning on another visit soon, and highly recommend this gem of a place to anyone."
