About Ellen or Andy Faris
My husband Andy and I live on Lake Murray and absolutely love it! Andy was a pilot for Pan Am and then Delta and commuted to New York in order to live on the lake. He now is a golfer and can gladly help you with any area golf questions. I am a former French teacher and love to be in or on the lake.
Ellen or Andy Faris purchased this House in 2007
Why Ellen or Andy Faris chose Chapin
We had been renting it as annual rental since 1991 and decided to do VRBO. It's been fun! We travel and have always loved staying in Bed and Breakfasts. This is the next best thing as we aren't tied down to daily work, but have the joy of providing to renters, what we think is special. We love telling people about the lake and area, but most people do not want to leave the relaxation of the water and house.
What makes this House unique
All guests comment on how much they love the gazebo, which is right beside the lake. Renters who bring boats, love being able to launch boats from the property and park their trailers. There is a lot of room for kids to play & big 'kids' games. Sun rises are spectacular.

Great place to kick back and relax
This was a great place with a great view of the lake. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to enjoy family and/or friends. We rented it for the Master's and enjoyed a little fishing and round of golf at a near by course. You won't be sorry renting this property.
BC from Broken Arrow, OK
We had a great time staying at the lake house. Weather was nice for February. The yard and gazebo were fantastic. We had so much fun kayaking and fishing. Will definitely be back. Home owners were great to work with and house had everything you need!!!!!@
Peaceful & Relaxing Vacation Spot
What a great place for a peaceful and relaxing vacation and it was only an hour down the interstate from Augusta. We enjoyed sitting on the dock during the day and on the deck every morning watching the sunrise. We didn’t have much luck with catching big fish but it was fun trying. Andy, I appreciate the opportunity of meeting you and we would definitely rent this home again.
It was a pleasure having you. Thanks for taking time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. Makes us happy when you are happy.
Beautiful piece of property, very relaxing and enjoyable.
Had it all, your on a beautiful piece of property with a charming South Carolina feel to it. We went there with the family to get away from it all, and we found it, one of the best vacations ever. Andy and Ellen who owned the property are awesome people and are there to help in anyway. There is no way you don't leave there thinking about returning, a super vacation spot ‼️
You could not find a more beautiful view of the lake anywhere. The private setting was amazing. Andy and Ellen could not have been any nicer and accommodating. We will definitely be going back here next year.
Million dollar view!
We were fortunate enough to witness the eclipse at the lake house!! It was amazing. The property is so private. We really enjoyed our stay.
