3 BR; 2 Bath lake house with big water view and deep water dock.
About Mary Alice
We love Lake Murray. We live in downtown Columbia and spend many weekends at Lake Murray, South Carolina's best-kept secret. Our sons, family and friends also enjoy Lake Murray fishing, boating, kayaking and the never ending wildlife show.
Mary Alice purchased this House in 2015
Why Mary Alice chose Chapin
We chose this property because while it is remote, it is only a 10 minute drive to the grocery store and local restaurants. It is the ideal location in a very large cove on the main part of the lake. And an easy 30 minute drive to downtown Columbia. Having a big water view without the roughness of being on the main channel is also a rare find. The home comfortably sleeps six. It was recently renovated and is tastefully decorated in a lake and fish theme. It has a carport to keep your car out of the hot sun and a large, new kitchen with all new appliances, a Keurig coffee maker, a conventional coffee maker and granite counter-tops. Situated on a peninsula, low traffic cul-de-sac, there is always a lake breeze and a shady backyard. You feel safe as there is very little traffic and a friendly neighborhood. The minute you arrive and see the lake, you feel a sense of relaxation. There is ample parking and it is a level lot, meaning there are no steps or hills to climb to get to the lake shore.
What makes this House unique
It is an older "stick-built" home ( not a manufactured home). It has the charm of an older home with a vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and living area, along with the original hardwood flooring. Most everything else is all new, including new windows, new doors and keyless entry. Also, there is a new water filtration system which provides the purest, best tasting water there is. (Some lake houses do not have pure water.) The bedroom area is separated by a huge (non-working) fireplace which provides privacy from the living areas.

Mary Alice and her property are wonderful. Enthusiastic thumbs up.
Scott, thanks for the nice review. It's always a pleasure to work with you and your family. Looking forward to your next visit to beautiful Lake Murray and Columbia.
We had such a great weekend at the lake at this property. Mary Alice was great, and the personal notes and welcoming touches throughout the home were such a nice touch. The location can’t be beat- 13 minutes to the grocery store and the marina where we rented a boat based on Mary Alice’s recommendation. The house itself was just what we needed for a comfortable stay for six adults. The kitchen was fully stocked, and clearly labeled where anything we might need would be. The living space was just right for game night but we spent most of the time outside on the deck and the dock that was perfect for fishing and floating. The lake was pretty quiet in front of the house since it sits on a cove, which just added to the long list of what made it so great. We will definitely be back!
Kelsey, I'm so glad y'all liked the house and enjoyed beautiful Lake Murray. And I'm so happy that you plan to come back again!
Comfortable and Clean
A few of my Aunts and Uncles stayed here for 4 nights. They all stated that property was clean, updated, and very comfortable. Specifically, the beds were new and comfy and Mary Alice had provided everything that one might need when staying away from home.
My communication with Mary Alice was very prompt and efficient. She is a delight to work with.
I will definitely use this property again when I need extra space for visitors. Thank you Mary Alice for helping to make my family's reunion a great experiece!
Thank you for the nice review. I'm so glad your family reunion was a success. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and look forward to hosting your extended family again.
Great house, great location, great property manager!
First time to Lake Murray family trip, we had such a nice time. House and host were excellent, would highly recommend this vrbo. Thank you!
We are so glad you liked the house and discovered how great Lake Murray is! It was a pleasure working with you.
Wonderful Weekend Getaway with my dads!
Property was exactly as shown and super clean! I loved all the sweet notes Mary Alice left for us around the house. We had plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 teen.
There is plenty of extra room off to the side of the kitchen to put a queen size air mattress.
The deck was so nice, and we made a lot of use of the swing!
Everything was great!! We can’t wait to go back!
Christy, I am so glad you liked the house! It was a pleasure working with you. And I can't wait for you to visit again.
We had a great time! Plenty of space, nice dock and great cove area. Owner very friendly and accommodating with kayaks and other lake toys!
Gene, I'm so glad to know that your family enjoyed your time at the Lake. I so glad you called me about the dock ladder and were able to retrieve it after it had fallen in the lake. We have now secured it to the dock so that it does not fall in again. It was a pleasure working with you. And I hope you will visit again. :-)
