Cozy, clean, 3 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, huge screened porch, boat ramp
Imagine...a sandy beach setting with waves breaking at the shoreline, a soft breeze under the shade trees sitting in your lawn chair near the water watching your family and friends splash and play in the water. Swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing...making memories that will make you want to come back each year.
Minimum rental is 3 nights, deposit and insurance required, pets considered. (Adult Dogs only) 2 nights may be considered.
My home has a full screened porch upstairs with cozy cushioned furniture for your comfort while reading, watching boats, stars, or friends in the lake. 2 sliding doors open to the living area/kitchen and master bedroom, perfect for morning coffee or reading and relaxing. The other 2 bedrooms are separated from the master and living areas giving you a private space away from the children or other guests.
The downstairs has a game room with full sized pool table, large den, flat screen TV, Bar, full bathroom, laundry room and access to lower patio, the lake and grassy yard for enjoying the outdoors.
The master bedroom, has a private updated full bathroom, doorway that opens to the lake and has a relaxed lake theme with bicycle accents all about. hardwood floors with fluffy rugs are at each bedside. Cozy Pottery Barn quilt and extra pillows!
The second bedroom, I call the green room, has a beautiful queen post bed with antique styled furnishings and decorations.
The third bedroom, the blue room, offers a casual lake designed theme with a queen and a full bed that easily sleeps 4 adults or children.
I also have a pack' n play crib and twin sized portable bed if needed. Please reserve these when making the reservation.
I have wonderful, helpful neighbors and will help if I'm not available for suggestions for boats, marinas and just great company if needed. Their children make friends and repeat guests ask if they are still there...like old friends! Join in on the fun!
Although I live in my home when it’s not rented, that’s a bonus for you because it offers well appointed items for your use: dishes, pots & pans, comfortable furniture, bedding, new pillows and the cleanliness and organization of a dream location to spend your vacation. I travel for work but if I’m not away I live in my tiny home on the property with no access unless you have an emergency that needs my attention.
I have water toys that can be borrowed; tubes, lawn chairs, etc but are usable at your own risk.

I also have a beautiful 24’ pontoon that can be available for an additional fee to an experienced boater.

About Frankie Fort
I LOVE the lake. I have spent over 16 years on Lake Murray. It is full of fun things to do. An abundance of restaurants, marinas and sports to never have a boring moment...unless you want them. Quiet restful coves to anchor out in are another favorite past time.
Frankie Fort purchased this House in 2014

The property was beautiful.
House was dirty. Spoiled milk and juice in refrigerator. Shelfs were filthy. Kitchen table had dried up ketchup all over it. The day we were to arrive, I was told dishwasher was broke. Being a party of eight, we had trash. We had to drive a ways to empty trash.where you dump your trash is only open certain hours. We left early because we had a 10 hour drive. We had to pack up our trash and take it with us.I didn't like that we had to wash our sheets and towels before we left. I didn't like having to make all beds when we got there. We were a party of eight. I felt like we did more work than relaxing. I think I would of rather paid a few more dollars and not had to get up at 4 am to wash sheets in order to leave by 7. All trash is put in your car and you must drive it down the road when it is open. Closets and drawers are full and no place to to put your clothes. Drawers in kitchen were so unorganized. Had to re wash a few pans before we used them. I feel that the house was a beautiful setting, the price was reasonable but, very disappointed in how dirty the house was and how we had to hand wash dishes and do laundry, take trash in our car to a dumpster that was only open certain hours.
I don't know where to begin to address how either embarrassed or shocked I am to read this review. I maintain my home to a very high cleanliness standard. You can read many other reviews and discover this is either a misplaced review or there were other circumstances that caused these harsh comments. I have used the same cleaning group since I started offering to share my home and they always do the same thing the same way...to my high standards.
Yes, the dishwasher was replaced with a new GE after the existing one stopped working with the previous guest. Unfortunately, it took a few days to get it ordered, shipped and installed. It is in place now and is working great!
I usually ask guests if they want to bring their sheets or for me to provide them, most use the ones here. As with most VRBO homes I have stayed in, removing the sheets and placing them on the floor of the laundry room is standard procedure. Starting the first load of towels is a favor to me and the next guest. Thank you for assisting me with this.
As for the trash, I have 2 large exterior 33 gallon cans and a 1 gallon can in the kitchen. Yes the trash drop is a couple of miles away, but it is on the way to the only store close by and they have reasonable hours. If someone is flying, has a conflicting departure date with their hours or they are physically unable to take the bulk of it away during their stay, all they need to do is call and my crew will happily remove it for them.
Feel free to contact me directly with any questions concerning this review or
I'd be happy to allow you to speak to another previous guest.
A beautiful spot on a beautiful lake
Our first visit to Lake Murray and we love the lake. Frankie's home is on a beautiful spot with everything we could want for a vacation. Since it's her home, it's completely equipped as well. Frankie wasn't there most of the week, when she was there she stayed in the apartment downstairs. When she was there, she kept to herself but was a delightful host, doing anything she could to make our stay perfect. The only downside was that, since it is her home, her own belongings were in the dressers and closets and kitchen cabinets. There were empty drawers for our things, but the space was limited. Overall it was somewhat of an inconvenience but didn't prevent us from enjoying our stay.
Thank you for your kind words and nice review. I have cleared out several drawers and moved more personal items out to make room in the cabinets for food and supplies. I don't like things piled on my countertops either so I understand and apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you again...Frankie
We loved the house great getaway
Great place to stay really private
Nothing but praise for this vacation home. Perfect for our family and a well stocked kitchen all you would need.Great views of lake.Owner most helpful,will return for other stays.
We stayed for a 3 day weekend with friends. LOVED the screened porch. We used the canoes, jumped off the dock, went boating and had any awesome time. Frankie couldn't have been more welcoming and will definitely stay again in the future!!!!
Although we are out in the rural area of Newberry County, we are a short drive to Columbia, Newberry, Prosperity and in a little over an hour Greenville and/or Charleston and 2 hours from Atlanta.
