Why Troy Mitchell chose Winnsboro

When I was looking for a lakefront home, this one really stuck out from the crowd. The quiet peaceful setting was just what I was looking for! Situated on 2/3 of an acre, with nature all around, I found this to be the perfect getaway from my daily routine. I'm sure you will feel the same way in this tranquil hideaway. With the availability of a split living area, you will find this the perfect place for multi-family vacations. Both adults and kids will find that perfect spot for time alone or with the whole family. Both indoor and outdoor dining, two living room areas and separate outside lounging areas; there is something for everyone!

As if the house and it's amenities weren't enough, Lake Wateree and the area offer many activities for all! With Carolina Adventure World only 6 miles away, you can venture into many more things. Historic Camden is within 22 miles, which gives much of the 'rich Southern history' this area has to offer.

The wildlife experience is well above average! With whitetail deer, gray squirrels, raccoons, opossums and wild turkey you will stay very busy! Not to mention the birds; egrets, blue heron, mallard and wood ducks - you have met your match in animal watching!

I hope you find this home as peaceful of a getaway as I have. Hope you can enjoy the experience soon!

What makes this house unique

Very spacious floorplan; all the comforts of home in this lakeside get away!

Was a wonderful long weekend retreat. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Experience was fabulous! From the lake view, lounging on the porch, hanging out by the fire pit or watching late night movies is was a great family reunion weekend.

Beautiful Very clean lake house with everything you could possibly want or need.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the lay out of it!! Caught fish off the pier, along with day and night fishing. We really enjoyed the swimming at the pier and the music was the cherry on the top! Will be looking to book again in October. Troy was very nice and was in touch when we called. Could not have asked for a better place to stay!!!!

Roomy house with great lake views

  • 4 of 5

My grandchildren, children and the two of us enjoyed our stay very much. The house is quite spacious and clean with a great outside porch overlooking the lake. In spite of the flooding, we made use of the dock using a rubber raft to access it, and the kids made it an adventure. The fire pit was great for Smores in the evenings. Upstairs was great for the kids with plenty of room to play when it was too hot outside. The only recommendation would be to have an exterminator see if he can get rid of the wasps which were always present on the porch as it appears the nests are within the porch roof. No one was stung, but was a bit of a nuisance. Also, we were not informed ahead of time that there was no garbage pick up. All in all, a great week in a lovely house and would recommend it wholeheartedly to families with kids for a nice get away.

Fabulous house with a few small inconveniences

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for what we were looking for- we attended a wedding weekend on the lake and this house worked out well because it had plenty of space for multiple couples including 3 full bathrooms which was very helpful. The location is great, the house is in excellent condition, and was very clean. The weather was great while we were there, so we were mostly outside, but the house had plenty of TVs, games, etc. which would be nice for rainy days. The owner also responded quickly to any questions we had leading up to the trip and was very helpful.

With that being said, there are two things I wish we had known about ahead of time about this rental:

1) The owner contacted us a week or two before the trip to see if we would need to use his sheets/towels- there is an additional fee of $40 for sheets and $40 for towels if you wish to use the linens at the house, but you also have the option of bringing your own. This was not a big deal, but was just something we were not expecting as it was not included in the initial booking costs.

2) Because there is not trash pick-up at the house, we were responsible for removing all trash and recycling from the house and taking it to the dump. The big issue with this was that we were checking out on a Sunday. Check-out of the house is at 11am, but none of the trash centers were open until at least 2pm on Sundays. This meant that we ended up loading up our cars with trash and having nowhere to take it, so we were forced to just bring it home with us which was not great. There was a list of trash centers in the house, but none of the hours were listed. Just be aware of this if you're checking out on a Sunday! I also recommend bringing your own garbage bags because the ones at the house were very small and thin, providing an additional challenge.

I still 100% recommend staying at this house, but feel it would be helpful to know about these two small things going into your trip.

There is a gas station/ bar/ convenience store/ marina/ restaurant within 2 miles of the house. There are three other good restaurants within 15 miles of the house. Carolina Adventure World is very close with ATV and motorcycle rentals and horseback riding.
