  • Island Unto Itself

    "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."

  • One of the best weekends ever!

    "I brought a group of students up for a bass team tournament, and the house and amenities were everything we could have wanted! We had an absolute blast, from awesome fishing from the dock to mini pool tournaments at night. We had such a great time, and will def be booking this place again! I only wish I could have brought my dogs! But other than that, everything was perfect!"

Lakes & Blackwater Rivers Travel Tips

Lakefront Central South Carolina Vacation Rentals

While many people think of a beach vacation or seeing the sights of Charleston, South Carolina for a vacation, they would be missing a beautiful retreat in the state, known as the Lake and Blackwater River areas. Lake Greenwood, Lake Marion, Lake Monticello, Lake Moultrie, Lake Wylie, Aiden and Camden are just some of the idyllic places to spend a week. The southern hospitality that is so well known will be in abundance when you stay in Central South Carolina vacation rentals. You can expect to find properties with lovely views of the lakes, fully equipped kitchens, and plenty of room for family and friends. These comfortable VRBO homes can accommodate large groups if you are looking for a place to host your next family reunion. There is a price range to fit any budget so come to South Carolina to indulge in outdoor activities or just lounge on your private deck.

Reaching Central South Carolina Lake Rentals

If you fly into South Carolina, you could arrive at Columbia which is in the center of the state. From Columbia, you would take Highway 20 to reach the vacation rentals of Aiken, Lake Murray, Abbeville, Lake Greenwood or Lexington. Then from this major highway, you would get on a smaller state road such as 25 or 221. These roads bring you close to Sumter National Forest. If you use Highway 26 out of Columbia going southeast, you will find the VRBO rentals in Lake Marion, Lake Moultrie, or Santee which can also be reached by using Interstate 95. You could even follow Interstate 26 into Charleston for a day trip.

Theater, Watersports and Horses Await Guests of Central South Carolina Lodging

Opera fans can visit the historic Abbeville Opera House that was built in 1908 in the Town Square. The theater has been restored and offers a broad range of performances so that you can enjoy an evening out from your Central South Carolina lodging. If Aiken, South Carolina interests you, there is a thoroughbred race track for you to visit. Polo is played at the track and you can enjoy watching the horses train for races. If you want to go riding, there are bridle or carriage paths that wind through Hitchcock Woods.

About 17 miles south of Aiken is a Living History Park that features buildings of the 18th century as well as a natural spring. You can bring a picnic lunch from your comfortable house as the park is open every day from dawn to dusk. Of course, nothing compares to beating the heat of a South Carolina summer like a dip in the many lakes that are in the area. You will find your luxury lake house has its own dock for you to relax on or park your boat next to. When you are ready to book your vacation, you can inquire from the owner if your rental will have kayaks, canoes, or other watersports equipment as some of them do. This only enhances the vacation experience when you can just walk down to the lake and splash to your heart’s delight.

Book Your Central South Carolina Lake Home Early

Summer is the prime vacation time in South Carolina’s Lake District. The weather is just right for lazy days spent on the water so it is best to book your lake home as soon as you can. Staying in one of the cozy cottages on the water can produce many fine memories for the entire family. Although summer is great, you may prefer to take advantage of the year-round rentals that are available. The off-season can give you some great rates on exceptional homes along the river, lake or in historical towns. People seeking refuge from the winter cold often realize that Central South Carolina is just where they want to be.

Plan your vacation as early as possible so that you can find just the right property to host your family reunion or romantic getaway. Many people have so much fun in this area that they return year after year. There is so much to do and a week just is not enough time to do it in so come join us to see what others have discovered.
