Why Thad Bruner chose Lake Murray

Unlike most other properties on Lake Murray, the home is situated high on a hill which overlooks the lake. These mountain like views are breathtaking and can be enjoyed from two huge decks or from the large great room, three bedrooms, the kitchen and game room. The home has large rooms to easily accommodate large family functions.

Located only 16 miles from Lexington with its many fine restaurants and unique shops, the home is a perfect location for family fun and relaxation.

The Riverbanks Zoo is located only 25 miles away. The zoo is one of the top zoos in the country with a grand assortment of wildlife and also an outstanding Botanical Gardens.

Of course the main attraction on the lake is boating. Pontoons, fishing boats and personal water crafts can be rented nearby. A public landing is only a few blocks away for those who have their own water craft. Weather you enjoy cruising, skiing, tubing or sight seeing, Lake Murray is the spot for you. There are many quiet coves to ski and cruise near the home. Oh, don't forget the world class fishing offered on the lake where the pros annually boast of the Lake being one of the best in the United States. With black bass, bream, crappie, striped bass, shell cracker and catfish you can't miss a fun filled fishing day on the lake. And the best part is all the species can be caught right from our dock.

Come experience the exciting vacation that awaits you on beautiful Lake Murray.

A Lakefront Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Six adults spent four nights in this beautiful home and never started a car. We didn't leave the property other than to walk the loop. We fished, played pool, watched movies, read, cooked, ate, napped and chatted alot. There was plenty of room for privacy. The great room is a wonderful common area with very comfortable seating. We even saw a bald eagle fly across the huge windows. The view is a 180 degree panorama complete with sunrises and sunsets. The decks and dock make it easy to enjoy the gifts of nature. The house is well equipped and the beds comfortable. Truly a Lakefront Sanctuary!

A Wonderful Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren came together to celebrate Thanksgiving in this beautiful lakefront home on Lake Murray. The home was perfect with plenty of space for eleven of us. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, playing games(pool, ping pong, cards, board games), and relaxing. Since it was so warm, we enjoyed renting a pontoon boat at a nearby marina. The kitchen was well equipped especially with fixing Thanksgiving dinner. The view of the lake was spectacular both from inside of the house as well as from the two decks. Thank you Thad and Brenda for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful home with us. As this was our first time to Lake Murray, we made some wonderful memories. May God bless you and your family. P.S. Thank you Brenda for the delicious Cinnamon and Raisin Bread.

Great location on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated and fully stocked with all the things we needed for cooking. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and hang out. The game room was a great plus, we enjoyed playing pool and ping pong each night. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

Very well maintained, furnished, and the view was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was so very easy to deal with and responsive. Could not ask for anything more from the person I rent from. The property is fantastic. Love the view, the design and functionality of the house, boat rental .5 miles away, the dock for swimming and fishing, and most of all my kids and grands had a wonderful time. What more could you ask for.
