                                            This home is as lovely inside as the view is outside! The owners have thought of every convenience to make your stay comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated, with lots of seating space for meals and relaxing for large families. The view out the back of the house is stunning and can be enjoyed by many of the rooms. The kitchen is well appointed. The screened-in porch is comfortable and enclosed by two nice decks where the kids cannot escape, so its safe for small children. Immaculately clean, even the unfinished bottom level of the house is clean and dry. Ample, safe parking. Trash pick-up was an extra nice feature in this area where you usually have to haul it away yourself. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive. Convenient to Lake Jocassee and a great hike up at Whiteside Mtn. between Cashiers and Highlands. Pictures do not do the house justice. Owner was very helpful. We recommend bringing binoculars and maybe even a telescope to enjoy the stars and daytime panorama!

                                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers.

                                            Owner response: Thank you for your stay we want thank your family for being our guest. We want everyone to have a place they can say it was well worth it. You are welcome back any time. Phil & Aileen

                                            We had a wonderful time together as a family. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our stay. Lots to do including lake, shopping in Highlands, river rapids, and excellent food. We especially enjoyed our meal at Three Pines, a bed and breakfast in the neighborhood. Private dining with a chef makes for quite the evening.

                                            Owner response: Thank you for you Stay and Hope you will return soon. The Three Pines View is a Great place, Steve and Diane are wonduful people and we work with them on over flow from their place. I recommend them as the best B&B that can be found. For larger groups as yours we welcome and glad you were able get Steve to cook for your group because he is very busy and was able to take care of your Dinner.

                                            We just returned from an awesome trip to Jocasee and coming home each night to this wonderful home was just perfect for our family The home is beautiful, well set up for large families or several couples. All amenities you would need were well provided. A morning cup of coffee or evening sunset on the back porch with a view of the Blue Ridge mountains was a great way to start and end each day. Our daily excursions to white water rafting, cliff climbing/jumping, and waterfall exploration were all just a few miles away. We would definitely recommend this home for future travelers.

                                            If your plan to stay in the Jocassee Lake area and want a great view of the beautiful mountains in SC, this is a great choice! The home is very well equipped, beautifully decorated, very very clean, and welcoming. The layout of the home lends itself to a great view of the mountains from the Kitchen, living room, and master bedroom, but the best place to enjoy the scenery is on the back screened porch. The sunrises were amazing and every morning was a different "painting." While we were there we enjoyed a day on Lake Jocassee, went up to Highlands and Cashiers, and went searching for Waterfalls. Thanks Phil for all your recommendations and directions. Not often do you rent a home that is as clean and welcoming as your own. We celebrated our 13th Anniversary with our children, and it was a great vacation full of memories! (almost forgot - buy your groceries in Pickens, the market just down the road is a little expensive but very convenient.) Thanks again, Trent and Amanda - Aynor, SC

                                            Bob and I had a wonderful week. Your home is beautiful and all the extras provided were appreciated. Things like cleaning products for the counters, soap for dishes. paper towels in bathroom, hand soap in bathrooms etc. We did not cook! Vacation time. Purchased items for the microwave and a salad. When I print the pictures, I am going to refer to our week at "Morning Glory" house. Have a great week and if you get to Naples.....keep our phone numbers and give us a call. blessings, nancy jane and bob

                                            Stayed at the house in October, 2010. It was a lovely house, as the pictures show. The view was fantastic and looking at the fog over Lake Jocassee every morning was worth the trip by itself. The house is located in a rather large community (in terms of total lots), but the number of actual houses in the community was low. This is a big bonus if you are looking for peace and quiet, and there was a security gate at the entrance that is closed at night. Be sure to get the codes before arrival. The owner was very accomodating and friendly and made every effort to insure that we had a pleasant stay. If you aren't familiar with the area ask him to recommend a few side trips. Highlands is a good shopping town and a nice drive through the mountains. There was also a winery that he recommended, but that we didn't get to. The house had Dish TV in at least 3 of the rooms, but didn't have internet. This was OK, since we had a VirginMobile hotspot which works by using cell phone signals, and had no problems at all. In terms of things to do, there are a number of state parks within a 10 minute drive, and the lake is about 5 minutes away. There is a nice, but small shopping center about 3 minutes away (groceries, Ace hardware) and a small, quiet town (Salem) about 5-10 minutes away. The closest "big" town is Walhalla, about 14 miles down the road. We would have no hesitation about renting again and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to stay in the area.

                                            Owner response: Thank you Vic it was a pleasure to have you and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for you kind comments. We look forward having you again. We have installed DSL and upgraded the Dish to the Hopper System from Dish that has VCR in each room with a TV. Thanks again for your stay and please return again.

                                            This house is great throughout the year. I have stayed there many times throughout the years. The views are amazing and the house is cozy. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life and just relax. Thanks Phil my family loves this property!

                                            Owner response: Thank you Pat we are always glad to have you thank you for your comments and we are pleased that you enjoy staying at our house. Please remember that you have scuba diving and water falls near by at Lake Jocassee, Hiking in the foothills, and Highlands where you can dine and shop at the nice places they have to offer. So you can have the convenience of these areas while you visit also. You are not far from Hendersonville, Ashville, NC & Greenville SC which is one of the South East Most Inproved and nice towns you can visit. They have a complete renovation to down town over the last +20 years and they did a Great Job. I rate it like a San Diago Gas Light district. You can dine, party, and stroll the area or watch a baseball game at the Drive Stadium downtown. If you haven't taken in some of these things I recomend them next time you stay. Thank you again and come back soon, Phil
