About the property

Cozy, clean, 3 large bedrooms, 2 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. (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 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 old friends! Join in on our fun!

I live in an apartment onsite but do not have access to your part of the home during your stay. I travel often and chances are you may not see me except for grabbing my boat and heading out on the lake! As I suspect you'll be doing as well.

I have water toys that can be borrowed; tubes, lawn chairs, etc but are usable at your own risk.

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.

A beautiful spot on a beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

AWESOME weekend

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!

Lake was awesome but some unexpected surprises with the house

  • 3 of 5

Most importantly, the house looks just like the pictures and the lake is wonderful. The dock and ramp worked out great. The part that was a bit of a surprise was that the owner lives in the house when it's not rented. The good in that is that the kitchen is very well stocked, the not so good is that the dressers, closets and cabinets are filled with her things so there isn't anywhere to unpack or put your belongings. I didn't see that the part of the home description that said she "has an apartment on site" meaning she lives in the lower floor of the house while you rent only the upstairs. Which also means you don't have access to the washer and dryer until she isn't home. She was only home for 2 days of our trip but we felt a little uncomfortable being that we are all in the same house. Also, the owner had a party while we were there so there were several people in and out and cars in the yard. The owner and her neighbors were all very nice, we just rented the house thinking we had it to ourselves not sharing it part time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. As stated in my listing, I do in fact live in my home when it's not rented. Two of the bedrooms have empty drawers for storage and plenty of closet space. On Sunday late afternoon, 4 friends came over and we went to dinner on my boat. They did not stay, nor party. However, we did have to access the yard to gain access to the boat and my apartment. If I am home, I typically offer the laundry area anytime between noon and 8pm I apologize if you didn't see the note in the guest book on the table. I am also in the process of adding a wash room upstairs as soon as the season slows enough to get the plumbers in to add it. Thank you again for staying and my neighbors enjoyed talking to you all. Thank you for your service!
