Welcome your friends and family to our beautiful 2,160 sq. ft. waterfront home. We offer 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that can easily accommodate up to 10 guests without feeling cramped.
Gather together in the spacious great room around the gas fireplace and admire the incredible lake view. Exhausted by your day on the water? Watch a DVD on the 65” 3D HD TV, curl up with a book from the library, or settle in with a board game or puzzle. Send the noisiest company upstairs to the 2nd TV and the Xbox 360!
There are many terrific restaurants around the lake, but you can also fix a meal in the well-stocked kitchen. Maybe you’d rather barbecue? Enjoy the lake view while you fire up the gas grill on the back deck. Pull up a seat at the large dining table, the kitchen breakfast bar, or the patio table in the screened porch for a meal with a view. The sunset views are breathtaking and not to be missed!
Ready for bed? The master bedroom has a King bed, a walk-in closet, and a master bath with a soaker tub and separate shower. The 2nd bedroom has 2 Twin beds, which you can push together to make into a king-sized bed, if that works better for your party. The 3rd bedroom has a Queen bed. The 4th bedroom is the only room upstairs, and has a a twin bed with another pull-out twin stored underneath. This room also has a 32” HD television and Xbox 360 with games. There are also a 2 pull-out sleeper sofas (1 queen and 1 single) in the great room. The entire house has A/C, and all of the bedrooms and the great room have ceiling fans.
We sit at the mouth of a cove along the Saluda River channel and it is perfect for jet skiing, water skiing, wake boarding, and tubing. Fish and swim right off of the dock! The shoreline also features a concrete pad into the water, which is great for lawn chairs and shallow wading. Both front and rear lawns provide plenty of space for kids and pets. The backyard has another table with benches and a covered swing under a wonderful shade tree.
Follow the concrete path down a gentle slope to the 18' long floating dock. We have a shared dock with our neighbor and your rental includes the left side of the dock pictured. You will have one watercraft parking spot at the dock. Rafting is permitted for an additional boat. Jet skis can also be pulled up onto our shore easily at the concrete pad. The water is fairly deep at the dock, but levels on Lake Murray do vary. Please ask if you are worried about the depth for your particular boat. Launch your boat for free at nearby Murray Shores Ramp. It is less than a ½ mile away by road and just 5 minutes around the point by water. Our 100' long driveway has ample room for multiple cars and/or boat trailers.
Lake Murray is renowned for its largemouth and striped bass fishing, but crappie, sunfish, catfish, and perch fish are also very common. The bird watching is spectacular, and includes osprey, eagles, hawks, loons, grebes, gulls, ducks, geese, terns, cardinals, finches, woodpeckers, swallows, hummingbirds, and many more. Our home is about 40 minutes by boat from Bomb Island, a designated Purple Martin sanctuary. Watching them roost at sunset is a marvel! Other wildlife you may spot around the house include turtles, frogs, lizards, snakes, deer, foxes, and raccoon. Naturally, we also have our share of insects, but the most fun are the fireflies at dusk!
Stay with us and discover why every day is a holiday on Lake Murray!
Please see our Swag Guide to learn where our favorite shops, parks, and restaurants around the lake are located.
Additionally, we always enjoy trips to downtown Columbia:
- USC Gamecocks!!!
- Good Food! - Try Pawleys Front Porch, Mellow Mushroom, Villa Tronco, Real Mexico, Jason's Deli, Little Pigs BBQ, Pasta Fresca, & Bombay Grill.
- City Art Gallery & Art Supplies - Browse local artists upstairs & art supplies downstairs. Never snooty, always amazing.
- Columbia Museum of Art - Free Sundays! Also, wonderful national tours & other events.
- EdVenture Children's Museum - Fun hands on permanent & special events.
- Historic House Tours - We've toured all 4 (Robert Mills house, Hampton-Preston mansion, Man-Simons site & Woodrow Wilson family home) and each is about an hour. My faves are Robert Mills & Man-Simons, but they are all worth it.
- Nickelodeon Theatre - Fun place to see indie movies. Beer! (Come early & browse Mass General Store next door.)
- Riverbanks Zoo - Great zoo and worth it to walk the botanical gardens.
- Township Auditorium - My favorite of the downtown venues. We've seen music, dance and comedy here.
- Trustus Theater - Outstanding plays! We've never been disappointed in a show.
Venture a little further out for a day trip. Head out to the coast and explore Charleston, Folly Beach, Hilton Head, or Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Look for historic plantations, like Boone Hall or Magnolia Plantation. Historic reenactments are held all over the state on various anniversaries. If you have a chance to visit one, I highly recommend it. Head north to Carowinds if your family enjoys amusement parks. Asheville, North Carolina has The Biltmore mansion, gardens and estate, which will easily fill a day. Asheville also offers shopping, good food, and arts & crafts in a small mountain town atmosphere. Savannah, GA has a wonderful, historic downtown perfect for walking and bus tours. Tybee Island just beyond Savannah is a great beach. Augusta offers world class golfing and Atlanta offers everything else! In short, if you can tear yourself away from the lake there are no end of choices about 30 minutes to 4 hours from the house!
