Private 1-2 Bedrooms, Private Bath, and Pool

This is a traditional Southern home on 2 wooded acres with a swimming pool, shaded front and back porches, and the quiet of a peaceful retreat both inside and outside. As travelers ourselves, we wish to extend our hospitality to fellow adventurers from all walks of life and welcome you to relax here or to use our home as a base for visiting Lake Murray, Michelin, the University of South Carolina, and many other famously hot attractions in and around Columbia, SC.

What guests are saying:

“My review will not be able to do justice for the experience we had. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Debbie and her husband were amazing, inviting, friendly, helpful, ... They provided some breakfast foods and drinks, towels, clean rooms, a whole clean and entertaining atmosphere. We felt SAFE sharing this space with them. I can’t believe we were lucky enough to get booked exactly when we needed to. She even shared her kitchen with us, pots and pans so I could cook, provided soaps and sanitizer, and the pool! I’m just completely blown away. Debbie, thank you!!!”

Cozy Ranch with Pool and Game Room Near Downtown

My home is 5 minutes from the heart of downtown Columbia. Relax and watch TV, play billiards and throw darts or take a dip in the pool(opening June 8th). Located in a tree-lined neighborhood adjacent to the award-winning Riverbanks Zoo. It's 10 min to the airport and about 25 min from Ft. Jackson. Great for sports fans, military families, graduation ceremonies and also working from home with WiFi @ 90mbps! Guests that stay 3 nights or more will receive a free glass art piece made in my kiln.

What guests are saying:

“Rob's place was perfect for our socially distanced trip. There were many restaurants to order from nearby and plenty of ways to entertain ourselves in the house. Rob was extremely responsive during our trip and sent help immediately when we had minor pool issues. He also was incredibly helpful when we had the unlucky situation of a tropical storm during our stay (fortunately it stayed mostly offshore and we had barely any effects). House was extremely clean and the billiards room really brings it all together. Fair warning: There's a decent amount of insects outside the house this time of year, but honestly not as much bugs as I've experienced in other parts of the Carolinas during the summer (and none inside). Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay, highly recommended.”

What guests are saying:

“My friend and I came down to Columbia for a concert at CIU. I messaged Katherine and David that we were in town and they invited us to check in early! We were welcomed immediately with warmth and kindness. They showed us around, were very polite and helpful, gave us driving directions and made us feel right at home. The room was well put together, Keurig included, stocked with anything you could need, and everything was super clean! In the morning, they made us an incredible breakfast; we ended up staying even longer than we originally anticipated. Bottom line; if you're thinking of booking here, do it sooner than later. They're the absolute sweetest people, and we so appreciated our stay!”
