  • Roomy and clean!

    "My husband and I vacationed in this beautiful home along with my in-laws... There were 10 of us in all and there was PLENTY of space! The sofas are tremendously comfy to cuddle and sleep on! The beds were great...even the roll away beds (2) were comfy! There were 20 year olds sleeping on them and they were totally fine. I want to address the steepness of the slope because this was something that concerned me before I arrived. I'm from Forida, so ANY incline is a big deal to me, besides three of us are overweight if you get my drift. Yes, it is steep, however, we just made one trip a day! We brought everything we needed with us and played all day in the lake! Even the kids and dogs were breathing hard after climbing the hill, but it is a nice wooden walkway all the way. There are nice railings to steady yourself, and hey... Just take your time going back up! After all, your on vacation! I'd stop occasionally and admire the view, then walk a bit more. It I can do it, anyone can do it, lol. And the exercise is good for ya! The pots, pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, etc were more than adequate too. Tons of huge fluffy towels too... No corners cut with this house. I especially loved the extra seating outside the kitchen on the screened porch. Cool bug free evenings. There's even a tv out there! They really thought of everything! And the owners, you call em with anything and they get straight back with you. Its a safe neighborhood too. we left our rafts etc down on the dock and had no problems with theft. the dock stereo is a great touch too. about half of us were too chicken to jump off the top of the dock roof, maybe next time... I've rented houses all over the US for years and this is by FAR the nicest. Trust me, you won't be sorry!"

  • Great cottage getaway!

    "Beautiful, spotless cottage with great owners! They were so helpful! Cottage was perfect for my husband and I. It had all the comforts of home. Landscaping was beautiful! The deck was so nice overlooking the water. Great dock for the boat. Would love to stay here again!"

  • Peaceful Retreat - Amazingly Comfortable & Welcoming

    "We were in the area for a conference at a local college and my friend handled the rental details so we could share a home instead of getting separate hotel rooms. This was my first experience with VRBO, but it certainly won't be my last if this home is any indication of what sort of experience is out there! We were all completely entranced with the view, and the home itself was so well appointed, comfortable, and welcoming it felt like we were visiting an old, dear friend. My only regret was the time I spent away from the rental and at the conference!! The owners could not have made us feel more at home - there were many obvious touches of a person who cares about your experience - including several umbrellas beside the door in case of rain (which I particularly appreciated, since our visit included a very rainy day and I had forgotten to pack one). I called my husband shortly after we arrived to describe the house and lake and told him we needed to come again together for a family vacation. This house is lovely - the town is charming - if you are looking for something you will not regret staying here!"

  • Clemson reunion weekend on Madison's Cove

    "We had such a a great time at Madison's Cove! We had 5 couples returning to Clemson for a reunion and to send off our good friends as they begin a 3 year stint abroad. We are an active bunch, so Madison's cove was perfect. We played basketball, shuffleboard, volleyball, and swam. Four bedrooms with Queen beds meant everyone had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The basement has a great pool table and couches to sprall out. We love that the grocery stores were so close and our other friends were able to stay closeby. We rented party buses to shuttle us to and from Clemson so no one had to drive. This is a great location for active families or groups of friends. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. We don't get to make it down to Clemson often, but when we return, we will definitely try and rent Madison's Cove again!"
