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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

We had a fantastic stay! Daughter getting married so rented both lake house and cottage. Plenty of room, very clean, all amenities needed were available. Took family pictures on the dock, kids were swimming, paddle boating, and fishing all weekend.

Awesome place to stay . Beautiful, clean, well appointed home . Owners were lovely and available to help if needed. Amazing location right on the lake with nice sitting area and dock. Caught lots of fish. Also close to stores Irmo, Lexington and Columbia unlike some other rentals on Lake Murray. Highly rated.

This lake house is even better than we imagined. The view was incredible and the deep water dock was perfect. Our three teenagers had the time of their lives, swimming off the dock and going in the boat. We rented the pontoon from Aqua fun. We live in Columbia so the drive was short. The house was very private yet close to everything. Hardwood floors throughout, comfortable furniture and very clean. Trisha was an awesome host, making our arrival, stay and departure very easy. We will book here again.

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.
