About Kathy Keenan

Andy and Kathy Keenan are the property managers for Memory Lane. They own another Lake Murray vacation rental home, Snug Harbor, that has a great reputation and a loyal following and when the owners of Memory Lane needed help renting their lake house, some friends told them about us. When we saw Memory Lane, we couldn't say no. It's just beautiful! We know you'll love it!

Kathy Keenan purchased this house in 1955

Why Kathy Keenan chose Lake Murray

This beautiful home on Memory Lane was built by Myrtle Weinreich's parents in 1955. We asked Myrtle for some childhood memories of those early days -

We helped clear the lot. We had to pick up our share of rocks before we could play in the water or ski. Camping out on army cots. Then excavation of the boat house and the foundation for the original cement block house built by Mr Palmer from the Hollywood section of the Saluda county. Family gatherings and skiing. Watermelon and skiing. Skiing in the rain and skiing in the dark. Oops that 's a no no. Daddy in the boat pulling people on ski. We would be in the water helping people learn to ski. Friends, family, people who shopped at the Piggly Wiggly (my father's store), classmates, children, and grandchildren, basically, any body that showed up on Sunday afternoon was given a chance. Slalom, building pyramids, ski jump, shoes skis, saucers, knee boards. We tried it all!! 'Walking home from a boat ride', we never had a paddle but always skis. The best ski cove on Lake Murray is around the point and to your left behind the two islands.

What makes this house unique

The lake house was remodeled in the early 2000's and became the lake home of Myrtle's parents. It looks and feels brand new. 'Look at the view!' is a common saying. Facing the east we are honored with the glorious sunrises and a serene, silvery path of the moon on the water as it passes in the night. Now we invite you to share their lake home and create your own Lake Murray memories. Enjoy!

Terrific lake house, open floorplan with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights over Masters weekend and loved every minute of it! Big, open floorplan allowed family to cook, eat and hang together with gorgeous lake views. Kitchen was well equipped, gas grill was perfect, and the patio/dock were perfect for our visit. Comfortable beds, clean house! Will definitely rent again when we return. Fell in love with Lake Murray all over again and hope to one day own a place just like Memory Lane!

Lake views go on and on

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this house on the lake. The place is roomy and spotless, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is very well stocked, and the views are gorgeous. We sat outside by the dock and took in the sunshine and the view. There are so many places to enjoy that lake view including several patios, the living room and bedrooms too. It was also convenient to use the garage to unload and load our car. The welcome signs were a special detail we appreciated.

The views from every room were mesmerizing. The location is easy to find and is in a safe, quiet little neighborhood. There is so much room inside! The kitchen is massive with plenty of room for multiple cooks. It is stocked very well with almost any cooking apparatus you would need. The pictures do not do this home justice. So excited to have another cousins retreat weekend here! Oh, it's wonderfully handicapped accessible with 2 different ramps. Thank you for sharing your awesome home!

One of our family's best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kathy and Andy for sharing your beautiful home with us! The home is absolutely beautiful, very clean, and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. We really only needed to bring clothes and food! Bring your boat to fully enjoy this gorgeous lake, which was perfect for boating, fishing and swimming. We made wonderful memories with our family during our stay, and we highly reccommend this home! Perfect for families with children, and it's handicap accessible as well. We really have no complaints about this home. Kathy was a pleasure to deal with over the phone and email, and we had the pleasure of meeting Andy, who is a genuinely great guy who welcomed us like his own family. Thank you both, and we're looking forward to coming back!!!
