Good potential but needs work.

  • 1 of 5

The location is nice and mostly private (one neighbor is close, but not intrusively so), but the house is in serious need of updates: carpeting is worn and dirty, linens are dingy. It wasn't very clean--especially the porch which is really a shame because it could otherwise be the highlight of the property. Lighting is inadequate throughout the house, and the refrigerator door kept popping open. The dock is definitely NOT suitable for children as there are no railings (we didn't have any children with us, so that didn't matter for us). If these issues are addressed, it could be a nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for review and the suggestions. I informed owner of issues and they have updated the carpet has been replaced and linens . I wish you would have let us know upon arrival of your stay . The lighting is fluorescent type bulbs that have to light up to become bright. There is no homes on Lake Murray that have rails on docks, docks are used for boats and swimming on lake. Hope to see you next year!

Could be cleaner.

  • 2 of 5

There was a used towel hanging in the bathroom. The utensils drawer had spatulas with eggs crusted on them. The swing was moldy. The shower curtain liner in the MBR was moldy and there was hair in the sink. The screen porch had dead bugs on the walls and railings. Overall, very expensive for what we had. Left a day early. The middle door handle on the porch is broken and has a sharp edge on it that my friend got cut on. Tree next to the dock in the water fell over in Wednesday's storm and will take out part of the deck is not taken care of. I owned a rental house in the Poconos and replaced shower curtain liners every couple of months or more. Also checked on the cleaning staff on a regular basis to insure house was clean. I understand cleaners are not responsible for the dishes and utensils but they can check them. Not many places to eat. Even the closest diner was closed during what we thought would be high season. The local tour boat didn't have public tours of the lake until Aug 3. Would recommend that anyone staying bring food to cook and wash all dishes, pots, and utensils before using.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, It looks like the cleaning service we use might have dropped the ball a little on this reservation. I am going to notify their manager about this. I would like to note that had you called we would have gladly asked the service to return and touch up the things they missed. If you are a future guest and are not satisfied with the cleaning, please give us a call or email and we will get the cleaning company to return. The door handles have now been replaced and the tree by the dock was taken down.

Comfortable lakefront with everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the house was well equipped with most essentials. If you are going to be baking any large dishes you may want to bring casserole dishes as there were only small ones available. Beds were comfortable but be mindful that you can only sleep 6 adults comfortably. We only had 6 adults and the rest were children so it was fine for us. Had trouble finding wood, but other than that it was a beautiful location, great dock, nice games, comfy den and screened porch. Would stay again.

Family LAKE FUN!

  • 4 of 5

Vacation fun for 7 of us, 2 daughters + 2 of their friends, mom and BF. Lots of fun for the week, we had a SUP, the kayak, fished (lots of BIG fish out there) rented a pontoon from Lake Murray Boat rentals. By day 3 the kids were so tired they took the day off from boating. The kitchen was great lots of cooking there and on the grill. Plenty of space with air hockey, fooball, screened in porch was used a lot. Puzzle building too!! A week of fun! We have rented from lake murray vacations 4 years now. Love how large Lake Murray is and the cabins! Thank you!!
