Southern Comfort says it all

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved the comfort and how clean this lake house is. The dock is right out your back door. Our family gathered here on Saturday for a Low Country Boil, we hired a local to cater all the great food. The sun was warm & the back porch, LR and back yard were so relaxing for our enjoyment. The bathrooms are large & the beds were comfortable. Wake up early to enjoy the Sunrise off the dock & we enjoyed the Snow Moon on Friday & Saturday rise right off the dock. This was a wonderful weekend and thank you Danny & Julie for helping us enjoy our stay. Very responsive and very helpful. Love Big Jims & R Café!

Loved this place! My family had a blast! I was clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We fished every day! It was tough going but that has to do with the weather and the fish. We did catch a few and the kids lived it!. The owners is more than helpful and a pleasure to talk too. We did venture out to Big Jim's Oyster House but it was closed. Everything you need to have fun fishing or just relaxing! We will be back! Thanks for a great time!
