Overview

About the property

Bring your horses or your children for a rustic, peaceful county experience!

Looking for a rustic total getaway country experience? Try our very private home, horse barn and pasture. There is a chimenea and huge deck looking into the sunset. The horse barn and four stables and a tack room. The pasture is close to 4 acres

The rustic cottage has three bedrooms and two baths, a country kitchen, dining room and den. There is a wide screen HD TV wall mounted in the master bedroom. There is a bigger TV in the den to the left of a gas fireplace. Both televisions are hooked to DirecTV with a DVR and On Demand service. WiFi? Of course. But you will want to spend your time on the expansive back deck overlooking the pasture and directly west into the sunset. The far end of the pasture in the oaks is a great place to spend an evening by a camp fire roasting hot dogs and marsh mellows. Don't be surprised if you see deer and wild turkeys crossing the pasture.

If you have horses, they will have plenty of good pasture and water. It's easy to store your horse trailer beside the barn and even an electrical hookup if you need it.

The property is a great family get away and unique pastoral experience. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle, we believe you will love our place.

About Georgia Hayes

My husband Roger and I lived in Charlotte for 30 years before finding our sylvan retreat in Chester, SC. He worked at Bank of America on a trading floor and I was involved with raising children, the community and running a small software business. We found ourselves exhausted at the end of each week and in great need of a change of pace. Our property which we call Chester Adventure Home provided the rejuvenation we needed on weekends. Now that the boys are grown, we can share our place with those of you who are seeking the same type of restoration as us!

Georgia Hayes purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Georgia Hayes chose Lakes & Blackwater Rivers

We originally selected this property just to get away. Since then, we've come to love the town and the people of Chester. It's all the best things of a small southern town. But mostly it's about the bucolic cottage, the pond and the quiet, private, almost spiritual experience of the land.

What makes this cottage unique

Four Horse stables and tack room

Fire pit with plenty of wood for campfires

Cozy, Peaceful and Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at the Chester house and both times for months at a time. I cannot say enough about how beautiful and comfortable it is. To top it off, the owners are two of the nicest people ever! I wouldn't stay anywhere else within the Charlotte area.

Frequent VRBO user.

  • 5 of 5

Was pleasantly surprised upon arrival has a kitchen was extremely well stocked. The property was perfect for a family get together and we all had a tremendous time down at the little pond fishing and enjoying the bonfire. Only had one issue and it was dealt with promptly and thoroughly. Would not hesitate to recommend this property for family vacations.

What a beautiful place the Hayes have at the Chester S.C. ranch.The house is roomy and the property is spacious. My family enjoyed the hammock on the back screened in porch area.We spent time out at the pond and caught a couple of bass.The house is stocked with anything you could possibly need.I highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life with a desire to explore nature at it's finest.Lastly Roger and Georgia are so kind and accomadating.Can't wait to return to this hidden piece of paradise.
