Very relaxing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice well kept up Cottage on Lake Murray. This is the first cabin rental I've been to that felt like a home away from home. Bruce and Lin are the best host you could ever have and I thank them so much for making this vacation so joyous. I have to admit, I was shocked on how well this cottage was structured on the inside and how nice the patio was designed. All your linens are cleaned, the appliances are well maintained, and the bed slept extremely good. They don't have Wi-Fi or a T.V inside the cottage which is kind of awkward but we didn't mind it since I brought my laptop and watched movies off of it. If a T.V is a must for you then you need to debate about staying here. They have a beautiful dock on the lake that is built with PVC. This made fishing and swimming off the deck very comfortable since it was a 100 degrees outside. We were walking barefooted on the deck and it wasn't hot at all. This property is located just a few miles from 50-50 sports where we spent most of our Saturday. We rode jet skies, ate dinner, and intertwined with other visitors there. I would recommend this property to anyone. Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed ourselves and will be back whenever we can.

Thanks Bryant

Owner's Response: More wonderful guests at our lake retreat!!! Bryant and Amanda were so friendly to communicate with both before and after their visit. We are so happy they got to relax and enjoy the lake life for a few days. They got to do some swimming and fishing off the dock. We are happy they found 50-50 water sports for some jet skiing on the lake as well. Thank you for treating our place with the utmost respect. Bruce and Lin

Peaceful Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are all about 'the lake' & this place had a very nice dock w/ladder, good swimming area and nice quiet cove. A++ for the lake! The cabin is actually a partitioned side of a pole barn, so there are no windows, but that being said . . . It was very roomy & comfy, decorated with a lakey feel and had ample supplies of anything you may have forgotten. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and we slept in late (8 AM is late for us!!) We spent most of our time on the front porch which was very protected but you still had an awesome view of the lake. Although there was no wifi, we could get a signal on the porch & caught up on messages and calls out there. We did not miss having a TV . . . We brought DVDs in case if we had a complete rain out, but we didn't even watch them on the 1 rainy afternoon we had. This place is in one of the prettiest settings I've seen. We walked 4 miles each day (our exercise routine) and found it to be a very low traffic area and we even saw several deer on our walks. The owners, Lin & Bruce, were excellent hosts and even let us stay past checkout since we did have that one rainy day. We are looking to buy our retirement home on this lake and will definitely look to stay here again, if the need arises. Wonderful little piece of paradise :)

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that Jean and Dan had a wonderful time at our "little piece of paradise". My husband and I work very hard to maintain our place (1-1/2 acres) and we are happy to share it with our guests. Jean and Dan had a long trip from out of state and did not arrive until late in the evening and had some rainy days so we did allow them extra time after check out. They communicated with us on a regular basis and treated our place with the utmost respect. Thank you Jean and Dan for being our guests and we hope you come again and eventually find a home on this wonderful lake!

A Real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

What a real gem of a place! The cottage was the perfect size for our family. My husband, daughter and myself enjoyed a few days at this property and it was truly perfect. The peace and quite, the wildlife, and the coziness of the cottage was just what we needed. Mr. Bruce and Mrs. Lin were wonderful to work with and they were both very accommodating, and after meeting them they felt like instant friends! We will definitely be back to share their cottage and we highly recommend this property!

Peace and quiet, beautiful views, comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property during Masters week while my husband was working in Augusta, GA because there was nothing available in Augusta. Turns out that was in our favor, because I had a great time staying here. He only had about an hour drive while I stayed by the Lake enjoying the beautiful views, lying on the dock in the sun. The weather didn't always cooperate but the first day I actually did get into the water a little bit. I can see in the summer spending all day in the water with the turtles. It was so quiet, I had time to slow life down a bit for that week. Didn't really miss the electronics, we had downloaded a few shows to the computer and brought our TV to connect at night since it was still quite chilly after the sun went down. We ate dinner outside every evening, and watched the deer walk through the yard enjoying their evening meal as well. One night before we knew it we had watched them for half an hour, it is hard to be quiet that long!! I would come back here in a minute, I can even see retiring in a place like this, it was fabulous. Everything we needed to cook our meals each day, gas grill on the porch, bed was super comfy, and the surrounding area was completely safe for my bicycle rides each day. Thank you so much to the Davis family for sharing their property, we had a great time and would love to come back when my hubby can actually hang out and enjoy the water.

Owner's Response: I was our pleasure to share our place with Lynn and Richard. We are so happy they enjoyed their stay and got to enjoy the deer grazing on the property in the evenings, the privacy, some swimming, and bike rides. Lynn and Richard kept us informed and respected our property as if it was theirs. Bruce and I thank them and really hope they can make it back again. I know Richard had to go to work each day and maybe next time he will be able to spend more relaxing hours on the lake. You are welcome to come back any time. Again, we thank you, Lin And Bruce

Cottage on Lake Murray

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the great accomodations we enjoyed with your cottage. There was plenty of room for the two of us and we even had nine people total for Thanksgiving meal!! Unfortunately, our meal was late in the day so we could not enjoy our meal outdoors, but we still had a great evening. And we no sooner mentioned to our family that we'd been seeing deer in the yard then we looked out and five small deer were grazing within fifty yards of our cottage! Every evening was like that; what a blessing. We really loved the wall decor and the atmosphere was very inviting. Though the cottage was small, with one bedroom, it was really super for us. The only drawback, no t.v. reception, did not effect us too much, as we brought along a small t.v., dvd player, and movies!! As an added thought, we caught fish even though it was late November and early December, even had a fish-fry one night. All in all, our time with your cottage was a memorable experience and we'll most definitely be in touch again with you at a later time. Thanks for stopping by to check on us and we enjoyed your visit, even though you did not want to interfere with our vacation. Please know that your visit was a pleasant time for us. Blessings to you both! Greenville, Ohio

Owner's Response: We appreciated Dave and Sue as our guests. We have had the most wonderful guests at our cottage and Dave & Sue were no exceptions. They treated our place with the utmost respect as if it were theirs. They had family close by so they all got to enjoy the lake, fishing, the privacy, wildlife and scenery. The number of people was an exception to our occupancy but was discussed before hand. We are so happy to share our lake cottage with such nice people. Thank you for being our guests and you are welcome to come back any time. In fact, we are looking forward to your next visit! Sincerely, Bruce and Lin

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I had the privilege of staying at this beautiful property for a fishing tournament. The boat ramp and dock are just the beginning of what I loved about it. The cottage is just as lovely and the owners are the nicest people you could meet (not to mention talented). Ask them about the paintings and art in the cottage. Beautiful artwork!

Also, let me say it states that the cottage isn't suitable for kids because there isn't a tv or Internet but we had our 11 yr old daughter with us, and she never missed either. Fantastic place to get away from sitting at the computer and start sitting on the front deck and enjoying nature and everything this place has. I would definitely tell anyone to rent this property.

Owner's Response: Our guests where so excited, appreciative and respectful of our property. They arrived a day early and we met them at the property to make sure they had all information on the property that they needed. We have never seen people enjoy fishing like they did!! It was a pleasure to share our lake cottage with such a wonderful family and hope they can return. Thank you so much. Bruce & Lin
