Loved our 5 week stay. The cottage had everything we needed.

Loved the lighted path down to the private deck and dock in the evening. The sunset view from the outdoor dining table is worth the trip alone.

The fishing was great off the dock where we caught largemouth and catfish.

It’s quiet. It’s romantic. We already want to return.

Can’t say enough good stuff.

No regrets renting from Tom.

No worries....It’s 5 O’clock somewhere.

Very nice, well kept lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at Tom's lakeside home. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, pots, pans, etc. There's a bbq right outside and a couple fire pits. We fished off of his boat ramp and our daughter thought she was hot stuff staying in his detached boat house which is set up with a bed, couch and half bath. No complaints at all and so glad we stayed.

Perfect for our weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our weekend of my son’s wedding, which was held at a venue only 5 miles away. The cottage was super clean and well stocked. The yards were beautiful and we loved the steps to the water, especially lit at night. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

We loved our stay in this cottage! It was very clean and was perfect for our family. My daughter and her friend stayed in the boat house and we stayed in the cottage. The porch was nice and relaxing. The dock was useful as we rented a jet ski one day and lots of fish in this cove. We had a great time fishing.

Camden is a very short drive away and is full of historical activities. Columbia is short drive as well and we visited the University of South Carolina.

We will be returning to this property and I would highly recommend it!!

Wonderful vacation home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in this home with our family of 5. The boys had their own space in the boat house and we enjoyed relaxing on the porch, the beautiful lake view and making memories with family.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

A Wonderful cottage. It’s on a quiet inlet full of herons, ospreys, and turtles. The floating dock makes launching watercraft easy and fun. We had our two dogs with us and they love it! Many small islands are within paddle distance of the house. The house has everything you need, we didn’t even use the boat house. Great for couples or families.

We would definitely stay here again.
