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.
It is difficult to find a lakefront property with this much lake frontage (600 feet) and a view this good.
I (and my wiener dog Porkchop) spent a great three days at Rick's cottage on Lake Murray. Like others have said, the place is clean and roomy, with everything you need except food. I brought my boat & kept it tied to his dock (when I wasn't fishing). He gave me some locations to try while I was there. I also need to mention, he met me when I arrived, rode with me to the boat ramp & after I launched it, he brought my truck and trailer back to the cottage. Reverse that when I was ready to leave. You couldn't ask for a better host. I'm already thinking about spending a few days there in the spring.
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!
Only stayed one night due to roaches, coming out of the sinks, pantry and the final straw was one over the bed in master bedroom.
I was refunded for the 2 nights we didn't stay.
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.
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!
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.
A canoe is available for free use, shared with our other property.
