About Mary Alice
We love Lake Murray. We live in downtown Columbia and spend many weekends at Lake Murray, South Carolina's best-kept secret. Our sons, family and friends also enjoy Lake Murray fishing, boating, kayaking and the never ending wildlife show.
Mary Alice purchased this House in 2015
Why Mary Alice chose Lake Murray of Richland
We chose this property because while it is remote, it is only a 10 minute drive to the grocery store and local restaurants. And an easy 30 minute drive to downtown Columbia. Having a big water view without the roughness of being on the main channel is also a rare find. The home comfortably sleeps six. It was recently renovated and is tastefully decorated in a lake and fish theme. It has a carport to keep your car out of the hot sun and a large, new kitchen with all new appliances, a Keurig coffee maker, a conventional coffee maker and granite countertops. Situated on a peninsula, low traffic cul-de-sac, there is always a lake breeze and a shady backyard. You feel safe as there is very little traffic and a friendly neighborhood. The minute you arrive and see the lake, you feel a sense of relaxation. There is ample parking and it is a level lot, meaning there are no steps or hills to climb to get to the lake shore.
What makes this House unique
It is an older "stick-built" home ( not a manufactured home). It has the charm of an older home with a vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and living area, along with the original hardwood flooring. Most everything else is all new, including new windows, new doors and keyless entry. The bedroom area is separated by a huge fireplace which provides privacy from the living areas.

Lake Murray vacation
We had a wonderful time. The house was very nice and charming. Close to Irmo with all kinds of restaurants and needs. The owner was very willing to help with any concerns during our visit. I will definitely book this location again.
Thank you for the nice review. It was a pleasure working with you. We look forward to your return visit.
We enjoyed our stay at the lake house. The view is beautiful.
The living/dinning space in this house was very spacious and our family of 7 fit very nicely. The kitchen is new and spacious , however it does need more light. The bedrooms are a little tight , but adequate . The beds were very comfortable. This house is not handicap friendly.. You have to go up steps with no handrail. We had difficulty getting up and down them. We were disappointed that there was no light on the deck. We were afraid to light the tiki torches because of all the dry leaves around. All in all, we had a great Christmas there with our family.. I am sure people staying there when it is warm enough to get on the lake will love it.
It was a pleasure getting to know you and hope you will come back to The Boat House. Unfortunately, it is not handicap accessible, as is disclosed in the description of the house. We are continually updating and appreciate your feedback. Our handyman will be installing a handrail for the 4 steps in the carport. There are two very bright porch lights on the deck. I wish you would have texted me if there was a problem with the lights (I am always available to my guests) - The light switches are clearly labelled beside the porch door. Thank you for the nice review and suggestions.
wonderful house in great location
We really enjoyed our stay on Lake Murray. The house had everything (plenty of towels & kitchen accessories) we could've asked for & is in a great location. Mary Alice was very easy to work with & we look forward to coming back very soon!
Thanks for the nice review! It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to having you come back.
Everything You Could Ask For!
What a perfect getaway on Lake Murray! The home is beautiful, updated, well cared for and has everything you could ask for! Really, everything!
We spent many hours on the porch watching the sun rise across the water, reading, enjoying the peaceful sights and sounds of such a heavenly spot. One morning two eagles flew across the water right in front of the dock, only a few feet above the water! Wow! What a sight!
When we weren't on the porch we were fishing from the dock or from our small boat that we launched front the boat ramp on the property. The men enjoyed the hammock for an afternoon nap and we ladies spent time in the swing. We loved that we were only 15 minutes from the grocery stores and restaurants in Chapin and only 25 minutes from the Riverbank Zoo where we spent one afternoon "being kids again".
We've stayed at 3 different lake houses on Lake Murray in the past 5 years and this is by FAR our favorite. The owner was so thoughtful, helpful and kind - she even left us a gift basket of items we may need for our arrival! There was extra propane for the grill, a dog crate for our dog if needed, binoculars -- literally there was nothing she didn't think of to make it a perfect week. I feel like I have a new friend after this vacation!
We've already booked the house for next fall so that should tell you how awesome it is! We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Nice cottage with lovely view and awesome owners!
My husband, daughter and I really enjoyed the week we spent at The Boat House. Whether it was sitting on the floating dock to watch wild life, visiting antique stores or just watching TV, it was just a nice quiet place to relax. Mary Alice and Carter are prompt to answer questions and go all out to ensure guests have a great stay. I can't say enough about this place.
Perfect week, Perfect house!
We felt right at home the minute we walked in the door! This home was perfect for our family of 5. Very clean, very comfortable and so inviting. Coffee on the deck each morning was priceless! Everything we needed was conveniently labeled making things easy to find. The restaurants Mary Alice suggested were delicious, our favorite was the Higher ground. We thoroughly enjoyed using the floats and kayaks all week. We were lucky enough to even see a double rainbow over the lake...I miss it already, we will be back very soon:) Thank you Mary Alice for sharing your little peace of heaven!!
Lisa, we are so glad you were pleased with the home. We look forward to your return visits.
