Great vacation spot!
Wonderful home that is well equipped. Owners are very friendly and helpful.
Amazing place, great views, good water
Plenty to do here with a rec room in the basement, dock for your boat, and screen porch and deck for lounging. Best Wateree rental for my family yet!
We want to thank you for staying at our Lake Wateree home. We look forward to sharing our lake house with guest like you. Let us know if there is anything that we can do that will make your stay even better if you rent from us in the future.
Fabulous House on Wateree!
Our family has rented several properties on Lake Wateree and this has become our favorite! Mr. & Mrs. Trapp were so hospitable. Their house is gorgeous and is located in a fabulous spot on the lake. It was spotless and well-equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The game room, canoe, and kayak were an extra bonus for the children to enjoy when we weren't out on the water. We highly recommend the owners and their property!
Thank you for renting our home on Lake Wateree. We are very grateful that you left it in a very clean condition. We hope that you will rent from us again in the future!

Absolutely wonderful. Great house.
Great house with everything you would need. Property owners are wonderful. This is the second time we have rented this property and we will certainly be back next year. Great location on the lake.
Perfect Family Getaway on the Lake
We had the honor of staying at Frank and MaryAnn's beautiful lake house for the week of July 4th and it was a wonderful time for our family! We were greeted with delicious homemade brownies and were welcomed warmly as guests. We have 4 teenagers ages 13-17 who stayed busy the entire trip and never once said those dreaded words "I'm bored!"
They kayaked, rode bikes, played pool and ping pong, read and napped in the hammocks, played a lot of board and card games and swam right on the home's private beach. We also did a lot of tubing and fishing. It was the perfect lake vacation for our family.
The layout of the home is perfect for gathering. The kitchen, dining room and living area is one big room with cathedral ceilings that open up to a beautiful view of the lake so you are constantly viewing all the lake activity. We loved this because we felt like we stayed together more even though the kids stayed busy swimming or doing other activities when they wanted, they always returned to hang out, eat and relax together.
The home is simply but beautifully furnished and there are some gorgeous pieces of furniture that Frank made himself!
I recommend bringing clothes hangers for your clothing since there aren't many places to unpack your clothes in the rooms. Also, WalMart is the closest large grocery store and is a 20 minute drive.
We also boated across the lake to a wonderful restaurant "Th Retreat" and had some wonderful dinner. The owner is very nice and makes sure your meal is perfect. We have rented homes at various lakes in North and South Carolina and this one is by far our favorite! Thank you for having us!
Thank you for the review of your stay at our Lake Wateree home. We will buy some more clothes hangers and we also plan to build a wardrobe ... I have the plans/materials and hope to start on it soon. Thank you for taking the trash to the recycle center and thank you for renting our lake house.
