About Sarah & Weston Minter

This lake house has brought us so many wonderful memories and we want to share that experience with others. Like most Charlestonians, we love the water! We stumbled upon this home in 2009 in our search for a lake front property. The house was very outdated, but we saw its potential and over the years have turned it into the modern oasis it is today.

Sarah & Weston Minter purchased this house in 2009

Why Sarah & Weston Minter chose Lake Moultrie

Moncks Corner is about 30 miles from downtown Charleston. We wanted a home that was far enough away that it felt like a vacation, but close enough that we didn't have to travel far to take advantage. The name you ask? “The Cove” was the name for the spot our friends and family would meet while boating. It just so happens this spot is just outside of our canal. It’s a great place to anchor and pull out the floats. The water is shallow and the bottom is sandy.

What makes this house unique

The Cove sits on a canal just feet away from the open lake. Centrally located, you can travel to the upper lake or go down through the locks, which allows you to travel from the lake into the Cooper River (very cool experience). The boat launch is private and right outside your back door. Both the front and back offer a full covered porch, which makes for a great place to sip on a cocktail and watch the sunset. The interior has been updated and offers a spacious kitchen, dining, and family room for larger gatherings. The other thing we love about The Cove, is it’s far enough away that it’s relaxing and feels like a vacation, but also close enough that you can go into Charleston to enjoy all that the Holy City has to offer.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our accommodations. There was plenty of room for everyone. We spent a great deal of time on the screened-in-porch. The breeze in the evening accompanied by the music of the lake critters was great. I would like to comeback. It was the best!

House location was excellent. It was very clean as well. Owners were congenial and responsive.

  • 2 of 5

The daily rate is high for the amenities provided. Had difficulty with cable and internet services.

While very clean and presentable the furniture was uncomfortable and sparse. We had a limited number of guests, had we max out the sleeping accommodations the other furnishings in the house would not support that number of people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies that you had trouble with cable and internet. We called the cable provider to follow up, and all seems to be working fine. Sometimes the two remotes (one for cable box & one for TV) can be confusing. In regards to sleeping accommodations, the number of beds and how many the home can accommodate is clearly stated in the listing. We accommodate guests of eight frequently, and sleeping arrangements work out well. We take all of our reviews seriously, and are always trying to improve our guests experience.

Great shady spot on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of guys recently fished for 3 days. It's a tradition going on 10 years now. This year however we decided to rent a house instead of lakeside motels. What a great decision that was. Everyone enjoyed The Cove. The boat landing and adjacent docking was ideal. Sleeping arrangements were perfect. We'll be back for sure!

GREAT

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "The Cove" The house was real clean and very cozy. The perfect layout for staying on the lake. Boat ramp, leave your boat in the water tied up away from the big water I case of a storm. Owner was very friendly and helpful with all the details.

Cute home with lots of great updates. My children and I enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed the large kitchen and dining area the most. As a family that's where we always gather. At night after the boys went to bed, we lounged on the back porch with a drink and just listened to the different creatures around us. My kids loved the yard. I was a little wary of my two youngest being on the opposite side of the house, but it worked out just fine. We really liked being away from it all but also a short drive into Charleston. I don't have any complaints! A couple suggestions, if y'all ever get a chance. Some window coverings in the master would have been amazing. The sun rose into those windows and we had to rise with it LOL. And there is no door on the second bathroom. My boys just had to warn each other when they would go. Otherwise, just a great space and a great time!
