Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This lake house takes your breath away when you enter the front door and catch a glimpse of the lake through the 3 picture windows in the living room. Set down your bag of groceries on the granite counter in the kitchen and go out on the lanai to catch the breeze off the lake and see the sailboats and jet skis crossing the water. Ah, you made it to the lake!

The three comfortable bedrooms and two full bathrooms offer plenty of room for a party of six. Two rooms have a queen bed, and one has two twin beds and each room has a TV with remote control. We also have two air mattresses if you have a couple extra kids. The house is perfect in any season - in summer you can swim off the dock or the beach. In the off-season the two fireplaces are a lot of fun. There is a stone fireplace in the living room and also an outdoor fireplace in the patio area. Both are very beautiful and will be part of great memories. The living room has a nice 48' HDTV and comfy seating. We have a boat ramp and a floating dock.

About The Owner

Andy grew up in South Carolina, knows all about Lake Murray, fishing, and duck hunting, and loves taking care of Snug Harbor. Kathy works at the University of South Carolina, and used to be a travel agent, and will handle your booking professionally.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Batesburg-Leesville

We bought this vacation home on Lake Murray because we love boating and swimming in fresh lake water. Going to the lake is such a stress reliever! The fishing is great - the bass fishing is great in the spring! You can catch catfish and bream and perch right off the dock. And yes, we have a large cast iron pan for fryin' them up.

What makes this cottage unique

The outdoor fireplace and the patio are so relaxing and the porch is a cozy place for your morning coffee or a cool drink. The living room is very large with a vaulted ceiling and 3 big picture windows that bring the lake right into the room! In the evenings you can curl up on the couch and read from our library or watch HDTV or play games (we have lots of games!). And the strolls around the neighborhood are great!

Charming, quiet, and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

As a group of six women we thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing weekend. The house is charming and met all our needs. Beautiful view out the windows and the fireplace in the evening was so cozy to sit around.

The home has beautiful views of the lake. It was very roomy and comfortable. The accommodations were wonderful, and we enjoyed using both fireplaces. We hope to stay here again.

Lovely place with one concern

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was wonderful. It is beautifully situated on the lake and close to the wedding venue on Hwy 378. The kitchen and living area are spacious and well stocked with all that a person could ask for. The response time and attention from the owners was great. There is one glaring problem for those of us who are allergic to smoke...the smell of smoke from the use of the fireplace is overwhelming upstairs. It should be noted that if you are allergic to smoke from fireplaces, this may not be the place for you. The bedroom downstairs might work for you, but upstairs, in the living area, smoke permeates everything. Even opening the windows does not take care of the problem, though it helps some. For those who love the smell of campfires, they will love this place. As I said, in all other respects, it is a wonderful place to stay.

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Went for a Thanksgiving mini break. My son attends the University of South Carolina and wanted to stay for the USC/Clemson football game. This home provided us with all the creature comforts of home plus a gorgeous view. The home had everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving meal. We did drive from NJ but most definitely could have flown and still have been able to purchase all that we needed nearby. The owners thoughtfully provide little things that not only take up car space but zap time and energy gathering together at the store. Sometimes its hard work provisioning a vacation home that it almost makes it not worth it. This was by far the most relaxing home I've been to because of these extras. I look forward to renting again.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay at Snug Harbor and it gets better each time. Andy & Kathy are just wonderful. The view from the living room as soon as you walk in can't be beat. We hope to go back next year for visit #6.
