Sit on the hammock, visit with your guests around the fire pit and roast marshmallows, enjoy our infrared grill and make fabulous meals in the fully-equipped kitchen and dine in the fully-screened and furnished wrap around patio. Here for romance? Light a fire and sit in the jacuzzi that is situated on the deck, overlooking the lake. Here with family? We have those darling bunk beds, movies, games and books, and the cabin is generally handicap friendly!

You have no time to shop for a rental, and we want you to have full transparency!

Just an FYI, We are NOT A GASOLINE MOTORIZED BOAT LAKE AND THERE ARE NO RENTALS NEARBY. Most of the lakes around us are small and private and not for gasoline-powered recreational use.

Thank you for taking a look at our home for your vacation!

About Monique Wallace

This home was originally owned by Mark's parents for almost 20 years, and was sold when they decided to retire "in town". The home was then owned and enjoyed by the Hinkle family. As their kids grew older, they decided to sell the cabin back into the Wallace family. Mark and Monique Wallace purchased the home in March, 2015. The Wallace's are a Clemson Tiger family, and Monique's family (minus Monique and her two daughters) remain in California- to support the Medby family UCLA heritage and Monique's alma mater. Mark and Monique met in Indiana and lived briefly in the Chicago suburbs, as owners of Moveable Feast in Geneva, IL. Now back in Indianapolis and Minneapolis, and freezing most of the time, they decided to put down roots by buying the family cabin so the Southern boy and the California girl could make lots of new memories together with their children and grandchildren.

Monique Wallace purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Monique Wallace chose Western South Carolina

There are a lot of fabulous memories in the home, and the vibe here is warm, welcoming and nourishing. Our home is also a tremendous value, as it is an entire lake front home with private dock with all the amenities, a new 2nd bathroom (remodeled in January 2017) and every room updated with well appointed furnishings, for under $200 a night! We also include many kitchen and bath supplies (a value of at least $100!). Many celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and we have several bride's prepare for their weddings at Chattooga Belle Farms in our home. We also have hosted several international travelers. The lake house is a peaceful and comfortable place for your retreat. It is a place to create your own memories. We recognize this and would be honored to be your special home away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

We not only love this home because it is rich in Wallace family memories, (there may be a few carved out names on a small desk in the corner...) but because it is just the "right amount of far enough away". Every amenity you can think of surrounds the area, but at night the stars are bright and chirps and clicks and fire crackles and the faint sound of moving water and wind all around you is all you can hear. One of Mark's favorite thing to do is to go out to the middle of the lake at night and look at the brilliance of the Milky Way and we frequently dance on the dock! Be sure to enjoy this lasting memory for yourself!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mr M, I take your complaints very personal and unbelievable! I was the guest that stayed before you got there. I am calling your complaints BS! My family of four stayed there for four nights. NEVER not once did we experience ANY smells or odors that were unpleasing or bothersome. The leaky tub Monique told us of and so it was expected. They are replacing it on their slow time of the year. With another tub and shower available, 4 adults had no problems with staying clean. The hot tub was great! If you had to scoop something out with your hands then that was by your choice since there is a skimmer in perfect condi tion on your right side in the corner. Mr. M, look at ALL the other comments and there is not ONE that states anything remotely close to what you are stating. This home is a cabin on the lake in the nature of woods. Its beautiful, clean, relaxing and calming just to be there. I agree with Monique which is wonderful, kind and always professional to deal with. I would not have refunded your money either since it seems that your situation seems to be the only one that states something about odor. I believe this was something personal that you and your wife experienced. With being the guests that was there BEFORE you, I will honestly and firmly stand by the awesome experience we had and have already scheduled another visit in November. I too have been a member of VRBO for years and I don't think I would take my hard earned money and spend more time at a home that I was not extremely happy with. Working in the medical field for over 20 years, I would highly suggest that you and y our wife be tested for allergies. Seems like you both have a very sensitive situation that can be helped with medication. In my opinion Mr. M, sounds like you were trying to get something for nothing but lets not judge! Good luck with your adventures. Hope you and your wife are feeling better.

Truly 5 Stars!

I am very experienced with HomeAway and the other guys and this is clearly the nicest place for the price. You may want to go now before she figures out that she can charge more...😀

Thanks Monique! We'll be back soon!

Second stay at the charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

After showing pictures of my first stay to the inlaws, they just had to come experience it themselves. The fishing was great, even though the weather wasn't so much. The house was immaculate. The lake was pristine and the area was so quiet.

Will be back very soon.

Even better in person

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spring break family vacation. My wife wanted to try something different and my 8 year old girls wanted to go fishing. So I wanted to find a property on a lake to take them. We narrowed it down to 4 properties and had a family vote. Boy did we make the right choice. The place is even nicer in person. Very clean and spacious. Easy access to the lake. Everything we needed was in the place. Great wifi which was good because our cell phones didn't have the best connection there. It was great getting away from the hustle and bustle and to a nice, quiet, relaxing, cabin. I highly recommend this property.

Very cozy cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived and found the cabin just as pictured. Very comfortable and charming. Had a great time fishing relaxing and taking in the views of the lake.was very pleased that the owners allowed us to use the kayak s and the Jon boat with the trolling motor. And didn't ask for more money.great bonus. If I had to complain bout anything it would be that we had some problems with the toilets. Had to use the plunger supplied a couple times.but that is to be expected with a septic and an older cabin.overall great home with a ton of character and charm.

Owner's Response: Hello Brian, Thanks for the review. Just to correct the information you provided for other guests, our home is actually only 20 years old, built by my father-in-law, four sons and the best contractors in the area. Even the beds are handmade. As far as the septic tank and toilet, most in our area are conservationists, and have water conservation, high efficiency toilets (WaterSense*) that perhaps might not have met your needs. Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation! Your email when you arrived meant a lot to us... "OMG Monique your home is amazing. I love the rustic them with the modern touches. I will surely respect your beautiful home .can't wait to get the lines in the water...😊"

Awesome rental house!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this house for the 2017 New Year. The owners were very accommodating allowing our three dogs to stay with us. The house was very spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The master bed was very comfortable. The master bath was amazing. Windows all throughout the house to oversee the lake. Can wait to get back to actually get in the kayaks to check out the lake and to fish. We highly recommend this house.
