"We love living here!!"

We were the second owners to move here in June, 2008 after our custom home was finished. We have loved every minute of our time here. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The various activities have something for everyone. I am very active in the Women's Group.

"Hampton Lake -- a lovely lakefront community"

After exploring many Low Country communities, we decided that Hampton Lake was a first-class, beautifully-designed community with plenty of amenities, great walking trails, and lots of social opportunities to meet our friendly neighbours!

Get this: we visit my high school buddy maybe once every 10 years. He had recently retired at Hampton Lake. While there, he mentioned the lot next door to him was for sale. After returning home to California, we looked into the lot. One week later, we were new owners.
