Little white neighbor dog attacked our greyhound!

  • 3 of 5

The house and amenities were okay... outdated. Beware of neighbors dog... the larger brown one is okay but beware even though they have invisible fence the white dog will attack. Anyone who brings a dog to this property should be warned that the dog came on the rental property. also another neighbors dog came over multiple times and we had to clean up its poop so our dog wouldn't be blamed... disappointing and will not rent here due to neighbors dog.

Owner's Response: Thank you to alerting us about this situation. I am going to get in touch with the owner of the home and see if we can't get word to the neighbors about this to make sure it doesn't happen again. If you could, please send us an email detailing which neighbors homes these dogs were coming from.

Perfect family vacation home on Lake Murray!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second vacation on Lake Murray, but our first stay at The View. The house was very clean and just made us feel at "home". Our adult children and their friends enjoyed the pool table and ping pong, and we all enjoyed the lakeside fire pit. The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking, and we grilled out almost every day! Having a private boat ramp on the property was extremely convenient (the local gas station was close by and only $1.89/gal while the marina pumps were both $3.99/gal) and we left our boat tied to the dock every night. We had deer in the yard every day, and the neighbor's dog LuLu was a sweetheart. We highly recommend this vacation really can't find a better "View" of Lake Murray!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We greatly appreciate your business and look forward to any of your future vacations! Gas is very expensive at the marinas. For any future guests who rent this property, or any of our other properties around the lake, the two cheapest marinas are Jakes by the dam and Big Mans by the river split.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The View for Memorial Day weekend. The house has huge rooms that allowed our group to be together. The dock was awesome as was the yard. And yes, the view was fantastic! This home is in a wonderful location on Lake Murray. We wiould definitely rent this house again.
