  • Making Memories

    "We had a great time during our stay here on Gold Nugget Point. It's on the West end of the lake so it's relatively quiet compared to the East end where the dam is but this lake is so large it's pretty quiet no matter where you are. It does take a while to boat to the East end, like 1 1/4-1.5 hrs to the dam. From the water, the east end has the Liberty Tap Room and some of the nicer restaurants except Spinners that's at the West end. There are plenty of less fancy restaurants accessible at the West end. The party coves, areas to beach your boat and Bomb Island where the Purple Martins roost are more at the West end too. So it depends what you're looking for. After you get past the State Park in the middle of the lake it gets windier and choppier but nothing my pontoon couldn't handle. Boat launch is 5min drive/boatride away at Riverwinds, costs $5 to launch and free to pull out. Call around for gas prices as some were twice the cost of land gas. You can tube/ski/wakeboard etc right off the dock, it's wide enough. The water clarity was dark, unlike Keowee where you can see 10ft down but unlike the Intracoastal Waterway where you can't see 1 inch down. The water temp was a perfect 84. I felt safe in the water, just saw turtles and the land was cleared before they flooded the basin so no stumps hardly and well marked if there were. As far as land fun, you don't even have to leave the grounds for the week. The sand volleyball is awesome. The beach they have is elevated at the top of the bank, not right on lake level FYI. The empty lot next door is a huge bonus to park your vehicles/boat trailers, to build a smore pit and play volleyball etc. There's a basketball hoop. The outdoor grill is nice and big. The screened in porch was nice once it cooled off. The back multilevel deck was huge and provided gorgeous views and a hammock. The dock was nice and swim ladder sturdy. You can use the empty lot dock too but no ladder on it. We blew up a floatation station and tied it off between the 2 docks and had a ball just hanging out. The downstairs floor is perfect for kids to get away from the parents and retreat to Foosball, ping pong etc. The house was very clean and kitchen provided everything you might need. Having 2 fridges and an ice maker was a huge plus! Mackey is very friendly and offers lots of nice tips on how to control the TV, grill, A/C etc. The only thing the house does lack is WiFi so bring a hot spot. We hit the Monetta Drive In which is real neat."

  • Great place for family vacation

    "We have rented this place several years now. It is a nice place to vacation, the location is great and the last place on a dead end street, so there is never any traffic to disturb you. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. Most of the time you never hear other people. There is plenty of dock space for your boats, and swimming. The kids enjoy the sandy beach and the paddle boat. There is a gas grill for cooking out, and there is always plenty of gas. There is a fish cleaning station for dressing your catch. Great house, great owners, great time."

  • Wonderful house - premium location

    "This house has a wonderful location on the lake. You have excellent views of the sunrise in the morning. The yard is spacious so bring your yard toys. We had a lot of fun throwing Frisbees, footballs and playing bocce. My husband caught several different fish right off the dock. We took the kayaks out for some lake paddling. This home was very enjoyable."

  • Perfect Lake Getaway!

    "We departed the sugar white sands of North West Florida to spend a few days with family located in Charleston and Sumter. So, right off the bat the location was perfect- right between them. We were quickly contacted by the owners after we booked. They are super accommodating and just good people. They took care of all our questions and concerns. Upon arrival - The owner met us and showed us the home and amenities. The House - The décor is perfectly done and tells you "relax and enjoy" from the moment you walk in. It had plenty of room for our family and our extended family. It was stocked with all the basics you could need for summertime fun. The home is a bit older and is not in pristine condition. It is however well kept and in good shape. It's just a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the good life. The Amenities- It has a very well thought out beach sitting area and a perfect dock for fishing, jumping off, or tying a boat to. You'll love the perfect outdoor shower. Location- There are plenty of stores 15-20 min up the road. Not a big choice on local places to eat dinner if you plan on not cooking. It's in a great little neighborhood with a public boat ramp at the top of the street. Overall- It's a lake house that has seen years of happiness and We can't wait for our next stay."
