Our Cabin is a great location for a weekend getaway or vacation. In addition to the lake we have 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, 3 lakeside golf courses, great fishing and hunting. This area is suitable year round. Summer has the advantage of warm water in the lake for water sports but the other seasons have the advantage of pleasant temperatures for all other activities. For details on hiking, biking, and kayaking go to www.littleriverblueway.org

This three bedroom log cabin is located on Lake Thurmond the largest man made lake East of the Mississippi. The cabin has full ammenities. You can launch your boat within a few blocks of the cabin and dock it in the covered dock at the cabin throughout your stay or rent our pontoon boat for only $75/day if you do not have a boat. The cabin is a beautiful two story log cabin in a wilderness setting sitting on 300 ft of shorline. It is 1500 square ft with a large wrap around deck,a 6 man hot tub built into the deck and a view that extends over several miles of lake.

Golfing privileges are availabe for several outstanding golf courses nearby, fishing within a half mile of the cabin is outstanding and there is a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail only a few miles away. Whether you are looking for water sports, golf, a great place for long walks or bike rides, or just a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy this is a great place to spend a week or a weekend. And for Masters fans the cabin is about a 40 minute drive from the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, GA.

Please keep in mind when making reservations for this cabin that it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the lake and is not suitable for groups of more than 8 to 10 people. For example a class reunion or family reunion would be inappropriate. There are numerous state parks nearby suitable for such gatherings.

About The Owner

My wife and I built this cabin in 1988 as a weekend/vacation get away. It has served us well with many great memories. We retired recently and purchased a larger home a mile away which is now our primary residence.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1988

Why The Owner chose Lake Thurmond (Strom Thurmond)

We chose this area because it's location on Lake Thurmond is one of the best recreation areas in SC. Not only is it on the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi but the fact that only 20% of the lake is open to residential development keeps the boat traffic down making fishing and boating activities much more enjoyable. The lake is not crowded even on major holidays. We are not golfers but this location is also located near some of the nicest golf courses in SC.

What makes this cabin unique

All kinds of wildlife are viewable from the deck of the cabin. Hiking and biking in the development where the cabin is located is great but if you are a real enthusiast a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail has recently been completed a few miles away (www.littleriverblueway.org). Some of the best fishing on Lake Thurmond is less than half a mile from the cabin and if you are a golfer you will not find any nicer golf courses than those accessable from our cabin.

Great view ample parking.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin needed some TLC and needed updated beds and furniture. Great Master upstairs but needed some sort of sound deading material, other wise you can hear everything that is happening upstairs. If it

wasn't for the fantastic lake Thurmond it would be just another cabin in the woods.

Owner's Response: Obviously the renters were not enthusiasts of log cabins. A log cabin has very distinct qualities that are very pleasing to many and a unique experience for anyone who has not experienced a log cabin previously. So far as TLC and furniture tastes, most of our renters are delighted with both. I recommend these renters go to a Holiday Inn next time.

Cozy rustic cabin on lake...very friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. Enjoyed fishing and swimming in the lake. The hot tub was awesome in the evenings. The little uphill hike from the lake up to the cabin was a bit rough, but that's probably because I'm alittle out of shape...ok, alot out of shape! LOL The owner was very accommadating and friendly. We had an excellent time! Would love to rent again.

Relaxing Atmosphere with Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

My group and I went to Jerry's cabin for a weekend of fun and relaxation. That is what we found. The log cabin is a unique place with loads of charm. The atmosphere was peaceful and low key. Jerry even stopped by to make sure everything was good. Overall, nice place for a get away.
