  • Beautiful condo, lovely view, and fantastic hospitality

    "Due to a family matter, we had to go to our hometown of Orangeburg for a few days. After surveying hotel choices, I decided to go to my normally reliable option of VRBO. Due to circumstances and need to reminisce, we chose the Lake Marion area as it held so many memories of my youth. After looking over the available condo/housing choices, this property was clearly heads above the others. Changing family circumstances caused us to alter our arrival date and the owner was super gracious in helping with the modification. The condo far exceeded our expectations. All rooms were perfectly arranged with modern furnishings, yet with a few pieces that had an antique flair. I loved the dresser in the master bedroom as it reminded of the one in my bedroom growing up which really helped on this trip. Even though time did not allow us to take advantage of the garden tub in the master bath, it looked comforting and my wife said we would have to come back to try it out. Despite the reasons for the visit, I slept well due to the very cozy and super comfortable bed. A large table with ample chairs are in the dining room which worked out well for my family. Its round design allowed us to dine and converse easily. The lazy susan is a great touch and I commend the owner on this wise choice. All appliances worked and we had all we needed with none of the usual "I wish the place had..." and it was very clean, my compliments to the cleaners. My family thoroughly enjoyed the balcony, watching the boats enter and leave while we sipped our glasses of wine. Even though we were not prepared to use the pool, it is very clean and the design fits well with the surroundings. I do highly recommend walking the old 301 bridge. It is the right distance for exercise and the view is fantastic. Having driven across this bridge as a young lad, this was a great walk. There are several grocery stores and decent restaurants in the Santee area which should meet practically any taste or need. I highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again when I visit my old stomping grounds."

  • Great choice for lake enthusiasts

    "I rarely post comments on places at which I have stayed, but your property deserves a shoutout. As a lifelong lover of lakes, waterfront cottages and inns are my getaway destination of choice. To me, there is nothing better than to be in or on the water, and, across the years, I have stayed at a number of places that enable me to do just that. While I enjoyed “roughing it” in my teens and 20s, I have come to appreciate a real bed and certain other amenities of home when in the out-of-doors. That has led to stays at some nice places on the water. Yours is among those places that are rich in creature comforts as well as natural beauty. I was particularly impressed by the extent to which you anticipate guest needs and the thoughtfulness in the many small touches that add to enjoyment of your property. I would have been content to spend my entire time at the lake but am glad we visited nearby Aiken. I love the historic and equestrian influences and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the downtown area. Thanks for recommending Aiken Brewing Company for lunch. It was a hit with our group. Having heard the stories and seen the photos of our guys’ outing, my sisters are determined to make your property the site of a long-overdue sibling reunion. Finding a week that works for three busy households is a challenge, but I remain hopeful. I would like very much to visit again."

  • Labor Day Relaxation

    "Great labor day (even with tropical storm) weekend. Loved the new dock facilities (covered) supported 25' boat, sunshine, well equipped home in a quiet cove. Boat ramp literally around the corner! Grounds kept nicely, plenty of fenced in area for boat trailer. Nice neighbors. Very quiet area. Bar & Grill close by on the Friday rain day. College Football on TV (cable) Will recommend and be back soon."
