This secluded cabin is simple, but comfortable with a fabulous view of the lake, a large boat ramp and a dock where you can tie up your boat, swim and fish. If you like birds, this place offers some wonderful viewing. We have seen Bald Eagles, Osprey, Owls, Loons, all sorts of ducks and loads of migratory birds, including Brown Pelicans!

This cabin is just outside the Lexington Town limits and 5 minutes from the Lake Murray Dam, less than a mile from Hwy. 6. The Caddy Shack is a driving range that is directly across from the driveway. The Regal Pastime Pavilion 8 movie theatre is 5 minutes away; the Riverbanks Zoo & Botanical Gardens are 20 minutes away and there are plenty of other fun things to do beyond playing on Lake Murray!

The house is simply furnished, but very comfortable with lots of sleeping space. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has a twin and full size bed. In the large great room there is a a trundle bed with 2 twins. The bathroom is large with a shower/tub enclosure. There is a small capacity washer & dryer. The dining room area has a large table that easily seats 8 people. A large counter in the kitchen area has 6 stools for even more seating space. There is a wood burning fireplace in the great room for those cool nights in the fall, winter & early spring.

About Ted Driggers

This land was acquired by my grandfather when Lake Murray construction was completed is 1930. In the mid-1970's my father decided to build this weekend home for the family to enjoy. He completed the work in 1979 and our family has enjoyed many years of fun-filled gatherings at this property. We were born and raised right here in Lexington and currently live just a few miles away.

Perfect weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Older home but has all the amenities (including fast wifi) you need for a great weekend and is very clean. Great view of the lake and if you like birding there is a variety right outside the front door. Secluded location but 5 minutes from Lexington which had a good choice of restaurants and other conveniences. Highly recommend!!

Would Stay Here Again, Anyday!

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Chris Driggers were so accommodating and nice from the moment we began considering this booking. You can tell they take care of their home and guests with respect and hospitality in mind. The location is fabulous, as it is a short drive to all nearby shops and stores, yet it's nestled down a long dirt driveway where you feel a world away from everything, except the beauty and tranquility of Lake Murray.

The house itself is cozy, clean, organized, and includes everything you would need to cook meals and so forth. I just can't thank Ted and Chris enough for how well they treated us, especially since it was our wedding, and my wife's family and friends were coming from overseas (Russia). It was their first time to the US, and we all had an amazing time. This was the perfect place to host them - and for us as well - to prepare ourselves in a peaceful setting.

Thank you once again, Ted and Chris. We will never forget this!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful views and you feel very secluded in the wooded area even though it is very close to everything. We had a great Thanksgiving get together. The house had everything we needed. There are new couches for an updated look. Great rental.

Enjoyable weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as advertised. Very clean and roomy. House manager, Teri, was very helpful and set us up with everything we needed. Location was great: Rented a pontoon boat nearby for the day, fished off the dock, went to a Gamecocks football game and sat around chatting. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Place for Family Memories

  • 4 of 5

Our experience at the 2 bedroom cabin on Lake Murray was wonderfully memorable. On our arrival, we drove through a beautifully wooded area

to get to the cabin. Their friendly and helpful property manager met us and gave us all the info we would need for our stay. The cabin is located on one of the most amazing views on the lake, yet it is private. Having our own boat ramp was so convenient for putting the boat in and out of the lake. We caught fish and swam from the dock. The cabin was clean and well stocked. Our large family had plenty of room to eat our meals all together. We made family memories and we would love to return next year.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed everything about this precious cabin and made lots of beautiful memories!! The convenience to anything you could possibly need or desire to do, combined with the privacy and lake frontage is just unbeatable!! I probably shouldn't rave about it so much because it might limit future availability!!
