About the property

Welcome to our 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom lakeside retreat.

Bring your group to our place and stay for the week... Your 7th day is always rent free!

For more pictures, special deals, and upcoming events, please visit our Facebook page by searching "Lake Murray Waterfront Holiday". We’d love to hear from you!

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 & 3rd bedrooms each have a Queen bed. The 4th bedroom is the only room upstairs, and has 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!

About The Swagers

We are Gary and Leslie, a retired couple who live up on a mountain in California for most of the year. We are slowly spending more and more time on Lake Murray, where our son Daryll and daughter-in-law Jenn live year-round. If we are not available, they will be happy to help you with the rental process and your stay in our home.

The Swagers purchased this house in 2015

Why The Swagers chose Batesburg-Leesville

This is the perfect house for us. The front yard is in a suburban neighborhood, with all the services we need nearby, and the back yard is a lakefront retreat. We love boating, sailing, kayaking, fishing and enjoying nature.

Very beautiful and peaceful location and comfortable home with everything we needed for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Everything was provided for us that we needed. The kids enjoyed swimming and fishing and loved the upstairs kid friendly bedroom. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to returning in the future!

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this home! The screened porch was so peaceful in the morning for coffee and watching the sunrise and listening to the birds. The house was perfect for us and our two adult children as we celebrated our son’s college graduation. The kitchen was so well equipped and the house was clean. We loved it and will definitely visit again!

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place because of the openness in the living room area. With two toddlers, we knew we needed plenty of play space for them. Our expectations were certainly met and surpassed with plenty of room for all to spread out and enjoy. The kitchen was well stocked making it an easy place to prepare our Christmas Eve dinner. The beds were very comfortable and my son’s Boykin spaniel absolutely loved the lake access! We hoped it would be warmer so we could enjoy the porch but we’ll have to do that next time. We will certainly be returning!

The Swagers have a very comfortable home with a beautiful view. We especially appreciated finding a rental they allowed us to travel with our beloved dog.

We would definitely stay here again in the future if we come back to the area.

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!
