Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time here. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful, quiet, scenic location. Full view of the main channel off the back screened porch made morning coffee truly special. Pictures just can’t do it justice. The whole house is upscale and wellput together. Thank you!

Our second stay at this awesome lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our annual fathers and kids lake cabin weekend. We had four fathers all about age 35 with five children all about age 6. We all had a blast with plenty of room to spread out whether it was playing or relaxing. The property is everything it claims to be and more.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving the lake house so clean . sheets and towels washed and folded. IT took Mary Ann and me very little time to get the lake house ready for the next guest. I hope that you will rent from us again in the future. We enjoyed meeting you and your group. Frank and Mary Ann

A wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Lake Wateree so much! The house is roomy, well kept and nicely decorated. Frank and Mary Ann met us to welcome us to the home and left us with some delicious brownies! Our three children (14, 12, 9) loved swimming off of the dock, taking out the kayaks and canoes and playing ping pong in the basement. We spent mornings and evenings fishing off of the dock. We caught more than our share of catfish, brim, perch, crappie and shellcracker. My favorite part was relaxing on the screened-in porch and taking in all of the lake sights and sounds--sunrise and sunset from the dock are really beautiful. This truly is a wonderful place to relax, refresh and connect!
