About Shawna Smith
Shawna Smith - Originally from the Parkersburg, Wv area but have lived in SC for over 20 years including Myrtle Beach, Charleston, & now the Santee area on Lake Marion. Just recently married my best friend Branden Fedak. We purchased this house together 2 years ago and we absolutely love this area. Branden is also originally from WV but we met in Myrtle Beach and now here we are enjoying the lake life!
Shawna Smith purchased this House in 2015
Why Shawna Smith chose Orangeburg County
The backyard & lake! Need I say more! Very cozy home & laid out well for lots of people without being on top of each other. Amazing neighbors & neighborhood! Great TV's, Direct TV w/10 HBO's & a free movie playlist, 2 dining and living room areas, Free Wi-Fi Internet.
What makes this House unique
It is an amazing place to relax, entertain, & just enjoy the outdoors with your friends & family. That feeling & the views is what made us fall in love with this house. When people visit, they never want to leave! The bedrooms are very spread out from each other which allows for more privacy. The 2 living rooms are far apart with the Kitchen & dining areas centrally located in the house. Sun room, both dining areas & kitchen are all open concept which is great for entertaining a family or group while seeing beautiful views of the lake. Great TV's with Direct TV & movie playlist, 10 HBO's, Free Wi-fi

Everything was perfect!
I would stay here again. It was perfect! My only suggestion would be to get a new mattress in the bedroom that has the bunk beds. My son stayed in that room the first night and then moved to the other room because of the mattress.
Other than that it was perfect!
Waterfront great for multi-family
Lake Front Paradise was ideal for our recent weekend getaway. The house/permanent mobile home has been added onto throughout the years so the 3 private bedrooms are set apart from one another. The only en suite has a queen bed, full bath and an alcove with bunks, bedroom 2 has a lake view and king bed with a pass thru room w a daybed and shares the hall bath with the 3rd br w a queen. The kitchen is well stocked w lots of glasses, coffee cups, plates, bowls, pots, pans, Keurig (a must) and is open to the dining and the rear enclosed porch has a wall of windows framing your view of Fountain Lake. The home has been completely and thoughtfully updated with floorings, paint, custom rustic tables and benches, and includes TWO family rooms w comfy sectionals (one at the front of the house and one in the enclosed porch). Every room has a tv - which keeps everyone happy. The front and rear yards are completely fenced for your pups unless you have a jumper like we do. Who knew!? Thankfully, the elderly neighbors were not horrified by the event and after we profusely apologized, we promptly found our buzz/shock collar to keep our leaping lab in the yard. The back yard has a covered porch area w picnic table and grill and the yard has numerous places to sit, lounge and just take in the calm waters. The dock is in good shape and was perfect for bream and small bass (<2lbs) and we took the boats out into the cove to find the larger bass - one pushing 4lbs. We threw them all back to get even fatter! We were so pleased w Fountain Lake that we only went to Marion once. We also met Bentley (an old lab from a few houses down) Bentley is smart and used her nose to nudge the gate lever open - I found it amusing to look out and she'd be in our back yard playing with our dog. She's a sweetie! If the water is not enough and you want to get out - we did venture to Bells Marina for CHEAP breakfast one day and some of our party enjoyed their Sunday Buffet too. Nearby Santee has the nearest IGA grocery and Elloree has some antique/junk stores if you like that sort of thing. Everything was perfect for our needs and Shawna (one of the owners) was prompt and friendly in responding to texts back and forth before and after our trip. Highly recommend for anyone looking for low-key, get away from it all w everything you need including beautiful Fountain Lake right outside your door.
Thank you guys so much, we are happy you enjoyed your stay at "Almost Heaven" and would love to have you back anytime! I'm glad you enjoyed Bentley...now you understand why we have pad locks on the gates. LOL.
Home was very nice insid
The people were very nice to work with. It was a little difficult to find and the surrounding town was a little bit questionable. The home inside was very nice and had lots of space.
What a great rental
We were in town just for a couple days, but it was a great couple days thanks to Shawna and her rental. Everything was perfect, neat and clean. Kids spent a whole day fishing off the dock and playing in backyard. Bentley (neighbors dog) stole the show as well, she was so good with the kids and the kids called for her everytime they were outside. Great time and would definitely come back. Ty again
So glad you guys had a great time! We usually stay there when my granddaughter comes down from Ohio and she loves Bentley, such an awesome dog! We would love to have you guys back so just let us know when you're this way again! Thank you guys so much.
Relaxing spot in the lake!
The view out back is stunning! It is a relaxing place on the lake!! We had a couple of minor issues that we brought to the attention of the owners and they were very responsive. Couldn’t ask for more!
Things we loved most...the lake and pier, lots of windows looking out on the lake in back family room, and the large dining table to fit us all around comfortably! Owners are very responsive.
Thanks guys! Hope to have you back again!
