Sunset house description

'A Stay Away' (the phonetic Cherokee language translation of 'Cedar Creek', the branch of Lake Keowee on which the property is located) is a true Mountain Lake Vacation Home. It is a 4000 sq ft, Lindal Cedar Home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large, open common spaces, a stone fireplace, spacious kitchen with new appliances in 2011, and ample sleeping areas.

In addition to two bedrooms with king beds, and one with a queen bed, there is a comfortable queen-sized swing bed (on a ceiling-suspended platform) on a sleeping porch, and a bunkroom with 4 beds. One of the king-sized rooms also has an additional set bunk bed, and each floor has a queen sofa bed, most comfortable for one adult or two children, of course. In addition, there is a pack-n-play for infants, and a futon mattress which can be used for extra sleeping space.

Queen-2 (including swing bed)
bunk beds-6
sofa beds-2

Outdoors, there is a two-level deck, with a jacuzzi, and a two-level dock (great for sunning) on the water, with an extra boat-slip for a rented boat.

Mostly, you'll want to retreat to the quiet seclusion of the cabin itself. Aside from a rarely-occupied log cabin next door, the nearest house is across the lake! In the summer, there are many lake activities available. Many nearby activities (golf, hiking, shopping) are available, which the owners will be happy to help you research for specifics.

There is a 40' picture tube style TV downstairs and a small flat screen TV on the main floor. While there is a DVD player, VHS player, and satellite receiver, it may not be the best place for TV watching or TV watching parties (eg, sports events). The internet wireless has been present, but with good reception only in a small part of the house, for about 3 years, but we still don't know where it comes from or 'own' it.

The community pays a fortune for good water, with daily testing. In addition the house has a whole-house filter and water softener, which was completely replaced in 2011. There is a separate kitchen drinking water filter. We think it's better than bottled.

The property is about a 20-minute drive from Clemson, SC, a 30-minute drive from Seneca, SC, 45-minute drive from Greenville, SC, and about 35-minutes from Cashiers, NC.
