You may not want to leave to visit the many activities that are nearby. The wildlife is incredible to view and there is always fun activity to watch while sitting in the gazebo by the lake or the deck by the house. Only 10 minutes (speed boat)-20 minutes (pontoon) to see the 750,000 Purple Martins roost each night on Bomb Island during the summer months.

Can use Crooked Creek in Chapin for tennis, gym basketball etc.

Guests love the privacy of the property and the 2 kayaks that are available for use.

You may launch boats on the property. Fishermen would enjoy some of the most renowned bass fishing in the nation. Boat rentals and launching sites are nearby. We are 10 minutes from Billy Dreher Island.

You can choose between relaxing on the deck or going down to the gazebo by the lake.

There is wi-fi on site and Dish Network with 2 High Definition televisions.

We enjoy cooking and if you do, we have supplied some spices that you may want to use.

It is two hours from Charleston, SC, approx 1 hour and 15 minutes from The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National, 3 minutes to Timberlake Golf Plantation, other golf courses 20 minutes away (Golf is a bargain in this area). Mountains are 1 1/2 hours drive. Come see your favorite graduate at Ft. Jackson(40 min. away) the University of SC (30 min.).

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 Lake Murray

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andy/Ellen...the place was beautiful. Although the weather could have been better, the place was perfect for a great getaway. The fish from the dock were plentiful and the view of the lake was spectacular. A very warm and welcoming home, everything you needed was available. Definitely planning to return......Thanks for everything.

Beautiful piece of property, very relaxing and enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Ellen and Andy were very kind and very easy to work with.

Lake Murray is so beautiful, it's therapy for your soul!

Definitely would return!

Everything was wonderful. The house was clean and plenty of room for our family of five. We enjoyed the kayaks, fishing off the dock and boating on the lake.
