Fabulous GirlsTrip!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and our daughters plan an annual trip. This year was to Lake Murray. Kelly's house was very close to the lake and Ancient Ovens. We had a fabulous weekend and the house was perfect for us to relax and enjoy each other. Everything was immaculate!

It is a lovely home in a beautiful, tranquil setting.

  • 4 of 5

The home was spacious enough for me and my family of eight. It is well-equipped for just about any activity one would like to do, including billiards, ping-pong, horseshoes, hot tub, video games, fishing and movies. There were adequate supplies like towels, coffee, paper towels, dish washing detergent, etc. They could've provided a few more forks spoons and knives. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and we're very pleased !

A perfect relaxing Father's Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful house over Father's Day weekend. My husband and I were able to sit and relax on the rocking chairs on the porch and watch the kids fish in the catfish pond, play ping pong, pool or Foos ball or just run around under the beautiful pecan trees. The house was clean and had all the needed supplies (even coffee!)

Satellite TV is only in the man cave area but there is a good selection of DVDs in the main house and my boys were delighted to have a PS3 in their bedroom.

It is also only about 20 minutes to Lake Murray so we were able to incorporate that into our weekend also.

Kelli was super responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely return!

Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

Shower in game room didn't have hot water but overall the place was nice. We had fun catching the baby catfish in the pond and the fire pit was a nice touch. The game room was a blessing due to the heavy rains that came in our first day. It kept the kids occupied perfectly. Overall it was a good experience.

Owner's Response: Derek thank you for the review. Happy you and your family enjoyed our place and caught fish. The last guest also caught several fish. Regarding the hot water heater, we will look into that issue - wish you would've called me. We are glad to know despite the weather y'all had a good time!!! Thank you!!

Not satisfied... many issues.

  • 1 of 5

First, this place is not secluded. There are neighbors less than 200yrds away. There are cockroaches and spiders EVERYWHERE! The hotub was not hot at all. The stocked pond is stalked.... with turtles, no fish though. The upstairs tv is a plasma and it's going out so whatever movie you watch stays burned in to the tv for at least three hours. Overall just simply not a place for a honeymoon. At all

Owner's Response: Ryan, we are so sorry our property did not meet your expectations but as you can see from previous reviews most people love the place! It may not be secluded , but it is very private as posted in the description. For the record, many of our guests have caught fish in the pond, sorry they were not biting that day. We examined the upstairs TV and all seems to be in working order with no issues. . We have taken extra measures and sprayed for insects , but keep in mind it is the country. The hot tub is in perfectly working order, there is a control panel on the tub so that each guest can set their own desired temperature. A simple phone call would've solved most of your complaints. Again, we apologize your experience was not favorable but hope all our future guests will consider what others have said about our beautiful country home.

Relaxing... with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed a few days and had the best time. Kelly is very helpful and took great care of us. Plenty of catfish in the pond. The man cave was the favorite spot to hang out.

We would stay here again!
