Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 2 1/2 months in SC coldest winter in decades at Rick's cottage. We loved the gas fireplace and Rick was right there with warm bedding and clothes for our dad to go fishing. For as cold as it was the fishing was great! We loved the area and are looking forward to returning next winter. We have never had such attention at a rental place. Each day Rick checked in on us and asked if we needed anything. Our springer was right at home in the large yard and loved Rick as well. Great guy and great place! You'll love it!

We did!

Excellent get away!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I are locals and were looking for a place that allowed us to get away from it all while still staying close to work. This cottage was perfect! The lot is huge and it's almost like having your very own lake. The cottage is rustic yet clean and still pet friendly. All of the appliances were in working order and the beds were super comfortable. The dock is amazing! I am an absolute novice at fishing but still managed to catch a good number of fish. There is a built in picnic table mid-dock with an umbrella that offers much needed shade. After an evening of fun on the lake we grilled out on the gas grill and then roasted marshmallows over the fire-pit. I hope you enjoy the cottage as much as we did!

Enjoyed the stay

  • 4 of 5
The picture of the land is very accurate. It is a really nice place with a nice view. We really enjoyed our stay here. My mother & 2 daughters travelled with us this trip. Rick was very responsive to any of our needs. he provided extra gas cans so that we could keep our jet skis fueled witout having to take them out of the water to refill.

We would definetly visit again. However, the futons are not in very good shape and no one could really sleep on them so we wont be able to come with the extended family. (I have 2 sons also) Also, the ramp into the water is breaking up and hard on the feet.

Overall , I thik this is a great place for a vacation.

Third Time's a Charm

This is the 3nd visit we have made to Rick's place and it was great. We brought our boat up again and had a blast. We went out 4-5 hours every day. After a few days our 2 Labs finally got worn out from jumping of the dock and swimming back to the yard. When our stay was over Rick was nice enough to drive my truck to the boat landing and helped me load up the boat. We hope to come back again next year.

Owner's Response: Jim & Abby,

I look forward to your visit each year. I especially enjoy your "girls", since I also own a Lab. I am sure they had a great vacation, and probably slept all the way home!

I hope you will come back and visit with us again next year.

Great lakeside vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5
The property is large, quiet and well maintained. The owner went out of his way to see that our stay was enjoyable. If you want to go Striper fishing, he is the man to call. My Grandkids said this vacation was the best and are ready to go back. I took my own boat and we spent a lot of time on the water. Lake Murry is beautiful. We will try to return again in the near future.

Owner's Response: I really enjoyed your visit, and your Grandson is a "quick study" as far as teaching him to land a good fish. I hope his leg heals properly, and he does not have future problems with it.

I hope you will come back and visit with us next year.

Family vacation

Once again, we had a great time. The kids, dog, friends, and me. Fishing is always excellent and secluded area made it great for the kids with the tube and jet ski's. We always look forward to going back.
Rick is always a great host, and extremely helpful.

I have stayed here twice and have enjoyed my stay each time. The description is right on and the property is clean. Customer service is the best you will find anywhere. This place has more lake front shore than you could possibly use. I think you will find a game called corn whole on the porch. This will occupy allot of your time.

Owner's Response: J Todd,

Emily is a "keeper"!! Congratulations on your marriage! I wish your Dad and Mother had been able to come. They are "special people" and I value their friendship.

I hope you will come back and visit with us again the next time you have a tournament at Lake Murray.
