Description of the Thurmond Lake vacation home rental

Beautiful views.
Easy access to deep water private dock,
Large smoke-free, pet-free home,
Pleasant residential neighborhood,
Ideal for families and sportsmen.

Email is the preferred method of communication. Try stringing together:
the at sign
the name of the most annoying TV service provider that ends in the word "cast"
period and then
Some sites strip email addresses so this is my way of providing it without it being stripped. I work daily and cannot access email or telephone until later in the evening, so be patient with me. Please provide an evening contact number if you call and please do not call after me after 9 PM.

I receive many phone messages I cannot understand. People have a tendency to say their telephone numbers really fast and/or drop their voices so that the numbers are not clear. Please speak slowly and clearly, especially when saying your phone number. I ALWAYS return calls and emails, even if the house is unavailable. If you don’t hear from me, it is because your e-mail address or phone message was not usable. E-mailed inquiries will usually be responded to first. I cannot return phone messages until evening – sometimes too late to return calls that day.

We post the depth of the water at the end of our dock and our photos show the view and terrain from the house. I always try to include a balcony post or something to give you perspective. When shopping for lakefront rentals, ALWAYS ASK about water depth, view and terrain because photos are quite often deceiving.

Note: Clarks HIll Lake / Lake Thurmond (the name depends on if you are standing in GA or SC) is an Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) built and managed lake. MOST lakes in Georgia and SC are.

In such cases, ALL homes border ACE land that borders the lake. None are technically "lakefront", despite advertising. The difference is the depth of the land between the home and the lake. It varies greatly around the lake, therefore some "lakefront" homes do not even have a view of the water. This home is in an older community and has a narrower strip of land between the homes and the water. The terrain is a gentle slope, therefore, easily walked. The combination of view, easy access and good water depth is rare among lake rentals.

Our basic rates are for six people. For more than six people there is a surcharge. The absolute limit is 10 people, not including infants. This site doesn't lend itself for breaking things down by days and by size of party. To find out the single and two day rates, please contact me. They are NOT 1/7 or 2/7 of the weekly rate.

The house is not typically available for holidays. We've had some really bad experiences with holiday rentals. July 4th is the exception, and there is a surcharge for the holiday week.
Masters Week = 8 nights @$1,600; Extra nights are $150 per night

- We do not rent for weddings, reunions, or any large gatherings.
- We do not rent for high school or college groups and we do not rent for the express use of minors.
- Sleeping arrangements are limited to existing beds. No campers, tents, extra sleeping bags or cots are permitted.

Wonderful trip!!!

September 8, 2013

My family and I stayed at this wonderful lake home for three nights and four days!!! Very relaxing, secluded, accomadating, and spacious home. The pool was very nice on a hot day!! The dock was so secluded and had beautiful views. We are already planning our next trip back!! The owner was very friendly and helped us in many ways to make sure our stay was enjoyable!! Definately a place to check out if you are wanting a private lake getaway!!! Also kids can't stop talking about how much fun they had!! Very nice and clean place!!! Book a week or weekend now you want regret it!!!

Nice place but wasn't clean and lots of bugs

September 7, 2013

The place had lots of space and the upstairs was lovely. Unfortunately, we found that the downstairs was not particularly clean

Very Nice

February 28, 2013

Comfortable and lots of room. Very clean. Nice view of the lake out the back. Lake was below the normal level but if it were up the location right on the lake would have been great. All the comforts of home. Owners were quick to respond to emails and have an excellent detailed rental lease. We would recommend this to anyone.

Owner's reply:

It is so nice to have a guest post about their experience. Thank you Lori.

Low lake level, but excellent fishing

November 23, 2012

We thuroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was everything we could have hoped for. Plenty of space to sleep, and large living room area for relaxing. The lake level was low, but we caught over 60 bass during the course of the week. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a peaceful stay right on the lake.

Awesome Get Away

July 19, 2010

Our group had an awesome time of fellowship, this beautiful home set the right atmosphere to just have a great time. If I could go there often I would, but since I have other matters I will just say if you want a quite, peaceful get away. This home set right in the middle of quiteness. Highly recommend!

secluded, nice house

April 16, 2008

Owner was extremely helpful and nice. House is well maintained with everything that you will need. The house is very secluded and is not at all convenient to groceries, etc but that is the way that we wanted it. overall, we had a very good experience and would rent from again.
