About Kay Stafford 803 787 2787

Our family and friends have enjoyed this lake house as a quiet retreat from the rush and hurry of running a small business . Although the house is small compared to many newer houses, we loved being able to view the lake from all rooms and the secluded feeling of being at the end of a private road with lots of trees and a nice yard for games. We also loved being so close to Columbia we could drive up for a quick swim or lunch.

                                                          Beautiful Views that go on forever!

                                                          Tammy H.Loganville, Ga

                                                          This is a quaint little lake house which is toward the end of the road so there is very little traffic. You have your own driveway so you don’t have to worry about someone hitting your car doors. There are trees on both sides of the property so even though there are neighbors it still seems secluded for your own little paradise. The home has a deck for sitting outside and watching the boats pass by or just to watch the sunset. There were 4 adults total and we had plenty of wiggle room to spread out and enjoy the home. Kitchen is roomy enough for two people to work in and both bathrooms roomy. This home is an older home so do not expect things to be picture perfect but it was very clean with great surroundings and the owner “Miss Kay” is just a gem to work with to make your vacation a memorable one.

                                                          Another great feature to this home is the Marina that is just a hop skip & a jump down the road. The marina offers boat rentals that are very affordable which made this rental over the top with it being so close to the house.

                                                          Thanks again Miss Kay!

                                                          Very nice

                                                          Lori G.

                                                          Great spot on the lake. Just right size. Needs a little work but it was great for the cost.

                                                          Awesome Outside Setting, House needs Improvement

                                                          Christine L.

                                                          Located in a very quiet and nice neighborhood, convenient to highways, shopping, marina, restaurant. The outside setting is spectacular, right on the lake shore, with a long dock, great for fishing, swimming in season, bonfire pit just feet from the water. This is an older house in need of repair and professional cleaning. Not well provisioned in terms of kitchen needs. Beds extremely uncomfortable. Owner was responsive to our inquiries and quickly fixed few issues that arose during our month-long stay here February 2016.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Ms Leskis was our guest for the month of Feb.We did a spring refurbish in March with new mattresses rugs and other upgrades including the kitchen. I wish Ms Leskis had informed me of her issues and I would have addressed them quickly with a reclean and new mattresses which we had bought. We did some winter storm damage repairs which we noticed after her visit. i am sorry she was not completely satisfied. Our family works hard to provide a clean comfortable house for our guests and always address any issues in a timely manner if we are informed of them.

                                                          Older home needing some updating and renovations. Owner was very easy to work with as we were looking to check in earlier and was very accommodating .

                                                          End of the dock is very small and you are not able to dock your boat. It was perfect for the kids to swim off of. Boat ramp is very small and will only work with a john boat or small bass boat.

                                                          I picked this house because of the proximity to Columbia and USC, where our daughter is in school. The house was clean and well appointed, with a breathtaking view of the lake. We enjoyed sitting on the upstairs balcony while watching a storm roll over the lake. We hope this house will be available when we come to Columbia again. Next time we will bring our boat and use the ramp and dock!

                                                          We are close to Riverbanks Zoo. Edventure Childens Museum and Fort Jackson Water park, white water rafting and tubing on the Saluda River.However we think it is more fun to stay at the lake and watch the Heron fish off the dock and take a swim before breakfast. Catch a fish to grill for supper and walk up to the marina and watch the boats come in.
