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 The house was very outdated, but we saw its potential and over the years have turned it into the modern oasis it is today.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.

Potential summer revisit

  • 3 of 5

We had a very short stay at this property, arriving Christmas night and staying two nights at the property. It is nice enough, but appears to be a work in progress. In our bedroom we had no where to put our things except in the floor, no dressers, storage at all, neither of the downstairs bedrooms had a closet with a closet rod so that we could hang clothes either. The rod was there in the floor and we didn't try very hard to put it up. A major complaint was that the TV did not work any of the time we were there. Not sure if there was cable service or not. Lovely location but will not be a consideration for visits to the area in the near future.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your feedback. We take our reviews very seriously and always strive to improve our guest's stay. I'm sorry that you were unable to figure out how the television works. We do indeed have cable and the TV works fine. I think having two remotes (one for the TV and one for the cable box) can be a bit confusing. We'll be sure to start including directions for the TV in case any future guests run into this problem. Thank you again, and we hope you will consider The Cove in the future.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Thanksgiving was the 2nd stay for our family at the Cove. The location is perfect for including visits with family in the area.

The kitchen is the gathering spot in the house-the island is great. There is a lack of adequate utensils, glassware and cookware for a crowd. Seating was an issue with Thanksgiving dinner being served there and the front room is bare. Additional seating in there would be nice. The DVD player was not hooked up and confusing to try and use since TV is mounted. Instructions for turning on TV would be helpful since at times it was difficult to get a picture. The house is roomy and the yard is nice and big.

The Cove is definitely a new family gathering place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Elizabeth. We are always trying to improve our guests stay and will certainly take all of your suggestions into consideration. I think over time, eating utensils and serving ware has been thrown away or taken with guests, so I would agree it's probably time that we invest in all new dinnerware. We hope to have you again next year!

Peaceful get away

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time while staying at the lakefront property, we were quite impressed with how well the home was stocked with pretty much everything we could possible need. Our only suggestion would be to ensure that the bushes at the end of the drive way to be trimmed down to ensure visibility for oncoming traffic.We will keep this property in mind when scheduling a future vacation. Thank you very much for being so helpful and allowing us to stay in your home.

Perfect relaxation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in mid July 2016...We only live a half hour away but wanted something on the water to celebrate my boyfriend's 50th birthday. We spent a lot of time in the back yard. The kids loved fishing right off the coves dock. We loved having our own boat ramp and having the boats docked right outside, made early morning fishing trips easy! The property is just gorgeous...Lots of shade and the garage is perfect to sit out in and you get a cool breeze most of the time. The house was clean and well stocked. We had a birthday party on Saturday and everyone thought it was perfect! Thank you for sharing your house with us! We can't wait to book it again!

Nice family get away on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family get away on lake moultrie. It was so nice to have our boat tied up at the dock ready to go out on the water every day. We enjoyed swimming, tubing, fishing and just riding around on our boat. The house was very nice and clean and stocked with everything we needed. Our girls (7 and 11) didn't want to leave. We would definitely rent The Cove again.
