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.

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.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house on Lake Murray!! It is everything it appears to be and then some! The views are awesome, the house is very clean and decorated beautifully and the owners, Thad and Brenda, are wonderful people and very easy to work with! We had our family from Ohio, Georgia and South Carolina together to enjoy the water for a week and loved every minuet of it! The dock is a perfect location on the lake for skiing, boating, tubing and swimming. The kids and adults enjoyed the games and puzzles and there was plenty of room for all of us inside and outside. We will definitely be back and are already planning our trip next year.

Thank you for sharing your property with our family to build memories.

Summer Lake Fun

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful for a large family with two great indoor spaces to gather. The game room has a pool/pingpong table, a poker table, as well as many games and puzzles. Our family enjoyed the two decks and the dock. The boat house had chairs and lots of floats and a nice sound system. the house is located on a great part of the lake for skiing, kayaking, and swimming. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Perfect location and home for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect. From the "little things" like enough parking for the whole family to the amazing views from multiple decks, convenience of the floating dock with stairs for the little ones to get out of the water and deep water to pull the boat up to. The furniture was comfortable and the beds were great (the sleeper sofas - not so much). Directv and wifi when you wanted to come in and take a break from the water. On a relatively quiet cove which made for great swimming, tubing and skiing. The kids enjoyed the pool table and other amenities in the game room as well. The landscaping is beautiful, enjoyed looking at it almost as much as the lake. Really nice to stay in a rental that is cared for with the pride of a personal home. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Awesome vacation spot on Lake Murray

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this lovely home. Could not have been any nicer. The property owners are super, communicate well and make sure you have everything you need.

The house is loaded with anything you might need, especially the kitchen, and is beautifully decorated and clean! The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowering plants on the decks and well maintained outdoor furniture so you can enjoy the beautiful views of the lake. Can't wait until we get to come again!!
