Why Lynda and Rudy Goetzman chose Batesburg-Leesville
We bought this particular property because of it's magnificent view of the lake from the house, it's very unique, natural white lake sand beach, and it's expansive 'bay like' shoreline. The natural lake sand beach right at your doorstep makes this vacation rental different from all others. We have poured a tremendous amount of energy into the property, to enhance this naturally beautiful setting, and to provide you with a superb place to relax and enjoy Lake Murray. And now we have replaced the original house with a brand new large, modern house for you to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
The adjoining wooded peninsula to the east and the small wooded island 150 yards offshore to the north provide a natural isolation barrier for the property, forming your own private 'bay area' - hence the name 'Bordeaux Bay'. The whole 'bay' is there for you to soak up and enjoy from the Family Room and Kitchen, from the Sun Deck and Screened Porch, from your beautiful yard, and of course, from that real lake sand beach.

Beautiful backdrop for my sons graduation from basic training
We are so proud of our military and all they continue to do to preserve our freedom!! God bless you all. We are glad that you enjoyed your well deserved break at Lake Murray.
We go to Lake Murray every year for our family vacation. As our family has grown over the years finding a place that works for us was getting hard. We are very happy with this find! It works for us all in every way. We will definitely be back next year! The only negative I have was not enough trash cans. It was pretty full when we got there and recycle runs every 2 weeks instead of weekly and someone had put trash in recycle bin.
We are always glad to see that guests like this group find that our lake house "works for us all in every way". We work very hard to make first class provisions for our customers. As to the trash cans, we have two large trash cans, and two large recycle cans. This is usually more than sufficient to meet the weekly needs of our typical guests. There have been a very few occasions when a group generates extra trash that exceeds the capacity of our trash receptacles. We do limit the numbers of guests in a party to ensure that our provisions adequately match the needs and expectations of our customers. A local church group proceeded these particular guests, and the church group may have generated extra trash beyond what we normally experience.
Great House, that worked out perfectly for the 10 of us that came from 4 different states for my daughter’s USC graduation. Spacious, clean and great views. All my guest loved the house, enough space for everyone to eat together. Everything that was promised was delivered. Thank you for sharing and opening up your home.
My toddler son cried when we left your property because he wanted to stay.
We all had a great time! The house has a wonderful layout for us and the grandparents; they took over the screened in porch. The screened in porch enabled them to be part of everything indoor and outdoors without have to walk up and down stairs.
We made family meals and just had a great time at the lake and beach. The kitchen is fully stocked with all types of pots, pans dishes etc. The appliances were great and above expectations. I could go on and on, it was just awesome. Thanks for sharing your property, it has made memories for our family.
Multigenerational families really enjoy the both the setting and new house. It's a wonderful venue to enjoy being with family.
What a great house in a great location! We were ecstatic when we walked in the front door! The house was great for our needs and had everything one could ask for. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone! Hope to stay here again in the future! Wonderful!
Through the years, all of our Masters golf tournament guests have thoroughly enjoyed their stays at Bordeaux Bay. Its a great lakeside addition to the tradition and grandeur of the Masters tournament experience.
BOAT/SWIM DOCK - A huge, brand new floating dock is just beside your beach. The dock boards are textured PVC, so no slipping or splinters. An aluminum swim ladder is provided, along with a nice boat slip. An underwater light has just been added just off the beach, to provide for lighted night swimming.
FIRE PIT -- A concrete fire pit is on the property just off the beach area, near the pergola. Aged, stacked firewood is provided. It makes for great entertainment for evenings under the stars!
BICYCLES -- One adult 21-speed and one 10-speed bike are available for your use.
BIRDWATCHING -- An osprey family and several blue herons nest in the trees on the small island just offshore. You have a great view of their approach to the nest over the bay from the back deck, the beach, or really anywhere in the back yard. Bald eagles nest off to the east of our property, and sometimes perch in nearby trees, surveying the area for food. The osprey and bald eagles are huge, beautiful birds!
OTHER AREA ATTRACTIONS include the Columbia Riverbanks Zoo, the Newberry Opera House, and Dreher Island State Park.
