About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This lake house takes your breath away when you enter the front door and catch a glimpse of the lake through the 3 picture windows in the living room. Set down your bag of groceries on the granite counter in the kitchen and go out on the lanai to catch the breeze off the lake and see the sailboats and jet skis crossing the water. Ah, you made it to the lake!

The three comfortable bedrooms and two full bathrooms offer plenty of room for a party of six. Two rooms have a queen bed, and one has two twin beds and each room has a TV with remote control. We also have two air mattresses if you have a couple extra kids. The house is perfect in any season - in summer you can swim off the dock or the beach. In the off-season the two fireplaces are a lot of fun. There is a stone fireplace in the living room and also an outdoor fireplace in the patio area. Both are very beautiful and will be part of great memories. The living room has a nice 48' HDTV and comfy seating. We have a boat ramp and a floating dock.

About The Owner

Andy grew up in South Carolina, knows all about Lake Murray, fishing, and duck hunting, and loves taking care of Snug Harbor. Kathy works at the University of South Carolina, and used to be a travel agent, and will handle your booking professionally.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

We bought this vacation home on Lake Murray because we love boating and swimming in fresh lake water. Going to the lake is such a stress reliever! The fishing is great - the bass fishing is great in the spring! You can catch catfish and bream and perch right off the dock. And yes, we have a large cast iron pan for fryin' them up.

What makes this cottage unique

The outdoor fireplace and the patio are so relaxing and the porch is a cozy place for your morning coffee or a cool drink. The living room is very large with a vaulted ceiling and 3 big picture windows that bring the lake right into the room! In the evenings you can curl up on the couch and read from our library or watch HDTV or play games (we have lots of games!). And the strolls around the neighborhood are great!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

From the open windows, to the beautiful view, to the cozy fireplaces, this home was wonderful. It was well equipped in the kitchen and had books and games. Although it was a bit chilly, we couldn't wait to grill downstairs and sit at the picnic table and view the lake. The owners were so hospitable and accommodating. We came to spend Christmas with family and there was even a lit Christmas tree in the living room and on the dock. I definitely recommend this place and cannot wait to return!

The place was everything I was expecting. The owners obviously take pride both in their property and in taking care of their guests. Would definitely recommend.

Very accomodating and hospitable!!

  • 5 of 5

Snug Harbor met our requirements in every way. Very clean with all that's needed for an enjoyable, relaxing stay; comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, nice grilling area, beautiful view with dock and boat ramp, outdoor TV viewing with fireplace, multiple indoor TVs and all this complimented by very hospitable owners. We really enjoyed the ballgame weekend, and hope to return soon!!

A great place to rest and enjoy the good life.

  • 5 of 5

If you like a lot of action, then this is not the place for you. If you need a quiet, restful few days, then this vacation rental is just the thing. You will enjoy the view of the lake, feeding the ducks, watching the fish jump, and seeing lots of water turtles. The home is lovely inside and has everything you need. Our favorite place was the porch with the round table. We sat for hours watching life on the lake while drinking some wine. This was a great place to unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet. The owners were only a phone call away if you had any questions. Make sure you take your boat if you have one, although there is a boat rental two miles away. We were not able to rent due to rainy weather, but we still had a good time.

This was our second time at Snug Harbor. The view is so amazing. Our son and granddaughter love swimming off the dock,fishing,and playing in the yard. The ducks keep everyone entertained! The house is roomy, comfortable, and well stocked. We will definitely return!

ahhh.....another great week at Snug Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Another great week at Snug Harbor. As with the previous summers, this too was a relaxing week!!! The house is always in great condition. Andy & Kathy are so easy to work with. They always have the house stocked with kitchen utensils, pots & pans, linens and towels. We enjoyed using the grill. Love the new blinds on the windows. We also enjoyed the babies (ducks). Last year we didn't get to see any but they were here this year and every morning they came up and ate while we had our coffee lakeside! I think we only missed one day floating in the lake. We love Snug Harbor and are so glad we have been able to return year after year. It feels like home. Thanks Again Andy & Kathy. See you next year!!
