Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Prosperity - Burke's Landing

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

With over 600 feet of waterfront and two acres of land, this cozy lakeside cottage makes for a great vacation. This cottage is located a quarter mile (walking distance) from Dreher Island State Park. Lake Murray is considered one of the best lakes in the nation for Largemouth Bass and Striped Bass fishing. Enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, skiing, jet-skiing, hiking, cycling, birdwatching, and more.

Two bedrooms, each with Queen-size Beds and lake view. A full bath off of Master Bedroom, a powder room off of second bedroom. Queen-size sleeper sofa also available in the Sunroom. A newly remodeled kitchen with microwave, range/oven, dishwasher, and all small appliances. Lakeside screened porch with dining table for six, and ceiling fan.

Over two acres, with picnic table, and lakeside campfire. Boat ramp is 100 yards away. Leave your boat in the water at our large 16 foot by 32 foot floating dock. The dock has electricity for charging boat batteries and a flood light. If you are fishing a tournament at Dreher Island State Park, you can be there by water in two minutes. There is a swim ladder on the dock. This property has a circular drive with ample parking for cars and boat trailers. A pontoon boat, is also available for daily or weekly rental.

We have Striper Guide’s available, who can show you where and how to catch those trophy Stripers. Guides can pick you up right at the dock. We will be glad to arrange a guided fishing trip for you.

The pontoon boat is 16 foot long, has a Bimini Top, a 50 HP Yamaha Outboard with Trim-n-Tilt, and a 18-gallon gas tanks. It has a detachable swim ladder, which can be easily attached, a Lowrance X-125 graph depth finder, trolling motor, rod holders, and life jackets. We also have a 15' canoe, shared between our two properties, that is available free, on a first come - first serve basis.

Why Rick Kellemeyer chose Lake Murray

It is difficult to find a lakefront property with this much lake frontage (600 feet) and a view this good.

We love renting from Rick every year. He is so helpful and is able to turn anyone into a fisherman! We loved the screened in porch. The house was very clean and neat. It was very roomy. We rented the pontoon again and had a wonderful time. Everything is there that you would need, just bring your food. I wish we lived closer so we could go there more often!

Owner's Response: Thanks for being a repeat guest. I have loved the screened porch since I first saw the property. It is so nice to sit outside on the screened porch, ceiling fan running, and just look out at the lake. I hope to see you again next year.

Roomy, private and great fishing.

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at Rick's place from April-Sept. because we were working in the area. Decided to bring our pontoon boat, and glad we did! Private dock and with Rick's knowledge- great fishing! It was our "home away from home" for 5 months. In the morning we drank our coffee on the back porch before work, and our weekends off we swam and fished all day. The cottage has everything you would need whether it's just a week vacation or a long term rental. Pots, pans, dishes, utensils, linens, towels, grill, washer and dryer- all you need is food. If you do catch some striper- ask Rick about his recipe- yum!! We will definitely be back when we can take a vacation.

Roomy & Clean

Enjoyed our stay ...Rick was good to talk to, another Vietnam Vet! House was nice and open floor plan. The dock needs a little work...apparently some storms worked it over! Very convenient to the Big Bass Tournament . Ramps at the State Park. Enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Bill, It was nice to meet you and Gretchen. We have done a complete replacement of the decking in the fixed pier, including replacing some of the support pilings. Sorry the fishing was so tough! it can be great or terrible, like most lakes.This week was terrible, last week was really good.

This is the first time that we have stayed at Rick and Randi's rental. The house was very clean. Rick was very helpful getting us settled in and answering any questions that we might have. The lake is a great place to fish and just relax. We highly recommend this to others, who want to stay on Lake Murray. The best thing we like is that you can bring your pet with you on vacation. My husband and I hope to rent again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks Dawn. I enjoyed meeting you and Mike, and hope you will come back to visit us next year. I am sorry the fishing was not better, but that changes week to week.

My wife and I have stayed at this rental many times in the last 5 years. We have been here in spring, summer, fall, and for extended periods in the winter months. We keep coming back because it's comfortable, has everything we need, and is in a great location. Our dog and 4 grandkids love exploring this 6 acre point. There are not many rentals with this much outdoor space. Owners Rick and Randi are always very helpful to their guests and have become valued friends to us. Rick showed me how to catch stripers on our first visit. I still learn something new every year, but do pretty good on my own now. When we leave for home we are already planning our next visit.

Owner's Response: Dennis and Reeta, It has been great to see you every time you visit, and when you leave, Randy and Mama always ask when you are coming back. We value your friendship and your business, and look forward to your next visit. We also appreciate your recommendations on upgrades. with, priorities, and have tried to manage most of them as funds and time permits. Looking forward to your next visit! And I would be remiss in not recognizing that Dennis, you have really turned into a pretty good striper fisheman, in spite of my wondering, early on, if you were trainable! We hope to see you again soon! Rick, Randy, and Mama

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent an amazing week at the cottage on Burke's Landing. From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed, we enjoyed every facet of Lake Murray and the surrounding area. Upon arrival, Rick and Randi ensured that we were settled in and any questions we had were answered. The cottage which is nestled on a small point with great views, was immaculately clean and had everything that we needed. Although we spent the majority of our time on the lake either boating or swimming, we did venture out to some of the local restaurants and the local mall which are all within a short drive. Rick was always available and always gave us tips on where and what the fish were biting which led to my youngest daughter catching her first striped bass which is a memory we will never forget. We enjoyed watching the sunrise and set every day on the dock and we enjoyed the quiet and tranquility that the cottage afforded us. We had a truly amazing time and I cannot say enough about our stay and the hospitality that Rick and Randi provided us. As a military family who have traveled extensively, we have been to few places that were as good as advertised, but our stay at Burke's Landing was far better than advertised and we will back next year to enjoy it all over again. My family and friends already know, but if you are looking for that perfect family getaway, give Rick a call and schedule your next vaction at Burke's Landing and Lake Murray. A very big thank you to Rick and Randi, we had an amazing time and look forward to seeing you guys next year.
