  • Fishing Trip

    "This was the first time for my wife and I on Lake Murray. Rick was very helpful with fishing tips. This is a great place to go for fishing or just to get away and relax. Hope to go back again soon. Thanks Rick. Eddie"

  • 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."

  • well kept, comfortable, nicely appointed home

    "We had a great time staying at the Lake house when we traveled to SC for the East Carolina vs South Carolina game. Family rivalry. :) We had originally reserved 4 hotel rooms. Canceling those and staying together in a house instead was definitely the way to go! The house was a bit of a drive from the campus and stadium, and unfortunately we did not have time to enjoy the lake. But it was a beautiful spot, and the owners were very responsive. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook up all our tailgate food. No Wi-Fi worried me initially, but it was nice to disconnect. Awesome weekend! Fran from Maryland"

  • Enchanting location

    "The cottage and its location along with our hosts Ellen and Andy made this a perfect and relaxing vacation. We had 13 days/nights by the lake and enjoyed every minute. We're from Scotland so the fabulous Fall weather was very kind to us. We particularly loved spotting wildlife from the deck and on our daily walks around Shull Island. Everywhere is so well maintained and yet still 'wild' enough to support some lovely 'critters'. In particular a close encounter with a humming bird will be a cherished memory on the dark winter nights up North! All this and an incredibly comfortable tasteful cottage to relax in. Andy and Ellen could not have been more helpful or generous with their time to ensure we had all the info we needed to enjoy our trip and see as much of the highlights of South Carolina as possible. For us 5 stars aren't a high enough rating for this cottage, it's quite simply perfect. I have no doubt we'll return as there's still so much to see and do in SC! Michael and Anne, High Bonnybridge, Falkirk, Scotland"
