About The Owner

This was our primary house up until 2014 when we decided to move closer to Augusta to raise our growing family. We always enjoyed living at the lake and would love to share that opportunity with our guests. We have lived in the Augusta area since 2007 and would be more than happy to answer any questions you have about the house or the area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

We purchased this property after falling in love with the surrounding forest and the shoreline of the lake. The sunsets overlooking the lake are out of this world.

What makes this house unique

This home offers a unique combination of escaping from everyday life, yet still being a short drive to the nearest grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hurricane Matthew Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were in need of evacuating form Charleston due to inclement weather. We had a large group with pets and this place was perfect. The location was ideal for us getting in and out of the Lowcountry. The home was clean, up to date, and spacious enough for an extended stay with 6 adults, 3 kids & 2 dogs. We had plenty of room to run and play outside and the short walk to the lake was a nice break from potential cabin fever.

We had everything we needed to be comfortable in regards to linens, bath towels, etc. The only downside, which we managed to overcome, is the inability to watch football via the TV set up. This was not a deal breaker but access to cable would make college gamedays a bit more convenient.

We managed to make the short trip to nearby McCormick for groceries and a night out to celebrate a birthday at the local Mexican restaurant.

Owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with during our time of need and their flexibility gave us one less thing to worry about while are homes were under siege from the storm.

Great house for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great gathering at the lake house. We had lots of room for our family of all ages. The kids loved the big yard and play set. The location was good and we enjoyed the walk to the lake through the woods. Nice covered boat dock. Very quiet area in good cove.

There was plenty of room for parking and our motorhome. We look forward to our next trip.

Great, quiet lake get away!

  • 5 of 5

This home-away-from-home was a great choice for a wonderful weekend with old friends. The bedrooms were large and clean, with enough space to accommodate everyone comfortably. The kitchen had a large (really, extra large) table that allowed everyone to enjoy meals together without feeling overcrowded or having to take turns sitting down. The two separate and large bathrooms was a plus for a group of 9. The highlight, of course, was the lake. The location was perfect - snuggled in a quiet cove with very little weeds or lake debris with rarely another boat insight. While there is quite a lot to do in the area, once we saw the lake, there was no need to leave. Grab your bathing suit and enjoy this relaxing lake respite.

Very Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just wanting to get away for a stress free weekend and ended up finding the perfect location. The rooms were all spacious and inviting. We really enjoyed making use of the large kitchen area. This location is ideal for just about any relaxing thing you can fathom. The first night, my husband and I built a bonfire. The next day we walked down the trial and sat on the docks for a while. The photos really don't do this beautiful lake justice. I will definitely be coming back the next time I need a peaceful retreat or to have some fun with a girls getaway. In conclusion, I am so happy that we chose to stay here.
