This location is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Come stay for a visit to USC, Ft. Jackson, football games, fishing or enjoying the water of beautiful Lake Murray.
If you need more space, you can reserve our cottage that sits in front of the lake house. It is listed as "Betty's Cozy Cottage" here on Airbnb.
Betty's lake house is a 1950's ranch with a million dollar view of the Lake Murray Dam with incredible sunrises and sunsets. It is simple, yet inviting. Our goal is to make your stay so wonderful you'll come back year after year.
You have full access to the house with the exception of our office located behind the laundry room.
You will share dock, yard, and pavilion with other guests.
Interaction with guests
Your comfort, fun, and safety are our priorities. You will be sharing a dock, the lakefront yard and the covered pavillion with guests in our cottage, but the level of socializing with them and us is up to you. We are available to answer questions and respond to any issues.
Other things to note
You swim, play, and boat at your own risk. Should you want to rent a pontoon boat we have a great guy, Ken Jones, at AquaFun. He operates out of Jake's Landing and has a variety of boats for rent (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Tell him I sent you and he will give you a great deal.
My mom is a realtor if you are looking for a vacation home or an investment property.

My name is Patrick and I run this bed and breakfast with my mother, Trish. My family has lived on this lake since 1965 and they have always welcomed guests into their home to enjoy the lake, friendship and family. I strive to continue their hospitable nature and welcome guests who will grow to love the lake as much as they did.
