About the property

Four bedroom, 3 bath ranch home with two master suites and large 18' X 40' poo

This elegant Executive home with two master suites is located in the quaint town of Chapin, SC and is conveniently located within 30 minutes of downtown Columbia with a perfect blend of country and city with close proximity to restaurants, movie theaters, golfing, etc. THE BIG CHILL is appropriately named because of all it has to offer and is the perfect place to 'drop off the grid' for your family vacation. Featuring stunning views of the big lake from a large covered deck, you will enjoy an enormous 18' X 40' in ground pool, boating and incredible fishing for largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, bream and catfish from a 10' X 20' floating platform off the dock.

We also offer, for an additional fee, a 25' luxury pontoon with a Yamaha 150HP motor - perfect for water skiing, tubing, fishing or just a family cruise to one of several top notch restaurants - all only a short boat ride away. This boat comfortably seats up to 12 people with a built in fish finder, GPS to cruise the entire lake without fear of getting lost and a high end stereo system to complement your boat trip. The boat is conveniently moored at the dock in your back yard so it offers a hassle free experience - just load up your crew and take to the water!! For those of you unfamiliar to Lake Murray it is 41 miles long, 14 miles wide at its widest point, covers 78 square miles and has 649 miles of shoreline to explore - plenty to keep you busy for an entire week!

Additional in water amenities included are three kayaks and paddle boards for an early morning sunrise expedition to watch the world wake up. Also local striped bass guide is available and will pick you up on the dock for an awesome fishing experience. (Rocky Bottom Fishing Guide Service - see his Facebook page)

Pure Awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

This place is totally over the top and is so worthy of more than 5 stars! Let me start off by saying the owners are so pleasant and do their utmost to make sure your stay is fantastic. I have used VRBO for years and have never met owners as caring as the Owens. The house is very well taken care of with top of the line appointments in every room including outside. They even provide fishing poles for your use during your stay along with pool floats and lake toys. Plenty of seating outside from dining tables to oversized chairs with cushions just to make your stay as comfy as possible. The bedrooms have very nice mattresses that are comfortable and give you a true rest after being on the lake all day. Plenty of bath and beach towels provided also. To sum it up this house is like stepping into the pages of Southern Living inside and out! It is truly breathtaking and a show home! Thank you again for your graciousness and southern hospitality we really enjoyed our stay.

Enjoyed our stay at the lake with beautiful views, lovely appointments and full amenities.

The home offers the perfect layout for 2 couples with 2 master suites along with 2 additional bedrooms for children or extended family. Kitchen is well appointed for the home chef with all necessary cooking implements. We will return to this spot when visiting family in the area.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this beautifully equipped and maintained home. Can’t think of anything that wasn’t perfect, including a stunning view of Lake Murray, swimming pool, optional pontoon boat and well appointed home. The ranch style was perfect for elderly grandparents. Was ideally located close to Columbia and University of South Carolina, which is perfect for graduation ceremony, football games and other events. Now that we are an “alumni family” we hope to stay in this house in the future for football games.

Beautiful location, house and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful. I have rented about 20 homes through HomeAway and this home was the most well stocked. If you love to cook, this is the kitchen for you. They have everything you will ever need to prepare a wonderful meal for a large group. The two master suites on opposite sides of the house is great. of the best features of this house is the owner. He is so welcoming and friendly and really wanted us to have a great vacation. We didn't have a worry in the world during our week. Pool is great, lots of well stocked toys, floats, and the boat is awesome.

We actually wanted to rent again this summer but he is already booked almost two years in advance. We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Patty, you and your family were awesome guests and we hope you will come visit us again in the future. Your glowing review is our reward for offering this home on Home Away. Every year we try and offer some additional feature or upgrade to keep the home fresh to encourage guests to return. This is our fourth year and we have a number of guests that have already booked for next year. Thanks again for being such a great guest!!

Amazing house located on a beautiful lake setting ready for you to relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an awesome week in this beautiful home over Thanksgiving 2017 with our family, Bill O. the owner was an excellent host making sure that everyone of our needs were met. This was an exciting time for us to be in Columbia we also were in town to witness our daughters wedding and this setting made it extra special for us and our children and their spouses to gather together in thanks under one roof.

Thank you again Bill for making our stay in your beautiful home a great stay!
