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!!

College reunion

  • 4 of 5

Several of my college friends and I got together this weekend and it was a great retreat for us. Three bedrooms accommodated the couples and the bunk beds along with the loft and an air mattress made everyone sleep comfortably. Water is plenty deep enough for our 20 foot hurricane deck boat. House was great only negative was the knifes in the kitchen were extremely dull so bring some sharp knives.

Owner's Response: We at Lake Murray Vacation Rentals thank you for your nice review of Shellcracker. The home is very accommodating for large groups and we are so happy that everyone enjoyed themselves. The dock has a lovely view and the water, as you mentioned, is deep enough for most boats. I will let the Property Manager and owners know they need some sharp knives, thanks for letting us know. Hope to see you and your college friends again on Lake Murray and thanks again for taking the time to write your review.

Awesome rental

  • 5 of 5

Great place for families! I brought a group of teenagers to the Shellcracker for the weekend and the house had lots of movies, board games in addition to the foosball and air hockey tables to keep the kids from getting bored. The home is very clean with spacious rooms for sitting and sleeping. The loft was referred to as the "Harry Potter" room by the teenagers. It has a big back yard with a dock and a fire pit for cool evenings. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our short stay in SC at the Shellcracker! We had nearly our entire family together during holiday time and there was plenty of space for the kids, spouses, and grandchildren and no lack of things to do for a few cool and rainy days inside. Lots of wonderful games inside and on the porch. We had enough bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen space. Perfect!
