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 Lake Murray

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!

Our third year at 'Snug Harbor' and we have always enjoyed staying there. It's been very good.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the setting of this property is hard to beat. Facing to the east allows for a beautiful sun rising, and its peaceful, quiet surroundings are a plus. As a 'fish cabin' it is a great 'catch' and as a lake house for families it provides many amenities. The wide open living space allows all to be doing whatever they would like: putting together puzzles, reading, watching TV, playing games... We would recommend it to anyone. The owners are wonderful and are happy to provide whatever might be needed.

Very relaxing!

This was our third time staying at Snug Harbor. My family has a great time swimming and fishing off the dock, feeding the ducks, and watching the turtles.

Came for Basic training graduation at Fort Jackson

  • 4 of 5

A large home with enough space for our family to relax. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and swimming. We had a catfish dinner on our 2nd night.

A big favorite for our daughter was feeding the ducks, turtles and fish with the provided feed.

If you're expecting a fresh new home with new furnishing, this house is not for you. The home is a little outdated and appears to have had additions added to the house over the years. However, It worked for us and felt very homey ( like we were visiting family ). It was nice to have additional spices left from other vacationers and enjoyed some fresh herbs from the planters too.

The only problem we had was no Wifi for our stay. It would not allow any of us to sign on. We tried unplugging and plugging the unit back in but it didn't fix the issue. Also, the knob in the shower of the bathroom ( at the front door ) kept falling off.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your family enjoyed your stay at Snug Harbor! I wanted to explain that the wifi trouble was when Time Warner was switching over to Spectrum and there must have been some hiccups. It's working well now, thanks!
