About Robert Caulder

My wife and I have lived in Camden all of our lives. We have two children and four grandchildren. In our spare time we love being out on the water spending time with family and friends.

Robert Caulder purchased this house boat in 2009

Why Robert Caulder chose Camden

My wife's family has always had house boats on Lake Wateree. Her Grandfather had a house boat on Lake Wateree before there were ever any homes built on the Lake! This was shortly after the dam was constructed. Back then it was better know as "The River" and it is still called that by a lot of the local residents. Her father has also had several house boats over the years so it was only natural that we carry on the family tradition and own a house boat. Our first was named the Shag Shack, was 10 feet wide and forty feet long. Our family made some wonderful memories on that boat. As our family became larger, we out grew the Shag Shack. We went in search of a larger house boat and we now have the Shag Shack II which is 14 feet wide and 60 feet long. We have a home on Lake Wateree not far from the Shag Shack II and still enjoy taking the boat out occasionally.

Quiet location, unique place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay and my daughters already miss the boat!! We had a great time. Everything is truly provided except yourself, clothes and food. Quiet location, beautiful views and good area next to the dock for swimming. Easy fishing from the boat decks. My dad and I kayaked around the cove and out into the larger part of the lake and had a good time. There's so much to see. Great set up for a vacation that's a little different!

Great and quiet location. Clean, comfortable, and everything needed to move in was provided. Just bring food. Awesome views and access to the lake. Internet access is not reliable. No wifi. Would definitely stay again!

We are ready to go back!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a must for a great getaway and time with family and friends. Well represented in the ad, it was everything we wanted and then some. My 4yr old loved the “boat house” and cannot stop talking about our trip. I suggest waking up around 345 to see all the deer feeding on the bank and in the water just behind the Shag Shak as well. This lake is beautiful and the views from the house boat are incredible especially the sunsets. Only suggestion I have is to pack light and utilize the Awesome washer/dryer combo to keep your mess at a minimum. We have suggested this property to many people since last week and will be back in the fall for sure
