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 Batesburg-Leesville

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!

Clean and Spacious

The house was great. It was clean with an open concept. The patios were everywhere to enjoy the view. It was hard to leave.

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

A great place for multiple occasions. Kathy was easy to work and corresponded in a timely manner. They had a little banner with our name on it identifying the house and a welcome message in the garage. Nice small touches.

The open floor plan of the house is very nice with a great view. The bedrooms are very spacious and accommodating.

We took some chairs down to the dock and just relaxed both during the day and evening. Wonderful view.

We would've like to have access to a boat and there is a boat rental within a mile of the house, but they had nothing available.

A great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is perfect, this was our third time staying here and I will be using it again.We took our 91 year old Mother and she really enjoyed it. Love the location, the fishing was great and the view can't be beat, especially the morning sunrise. and the moon at night on the water. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to spend a vacation. Had a wonderful time. The Cumbee Family.

For the 2nd year in a row, this house did not disappoint for our annual cousins weekend! As always, this house is so clean and very well stocked for any type of cooking. The layout could not be more perfect for family gatherings. The owners are a dream to work with and add truly special individual touches to make you feel that this is your home away from home. Thank you for sharing your home for a wonderful weekend! See you next year!

Was a very quiet VERY picturesque place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful experience renting this home. We were going to a sweet 15 party for our granddaughter and had family coming from other states. I accidentally rented a day later then I needed it. I called Kathy and explained my problem to her and she did all she could to get us in there with enough time to get ready for our party. Was a beautiful place and would definitely rent it again. Hopefully sometime later this year.
