Stay with us at The Jocassee Sanctuary, the spectacular, elegant yet comfortable 5 bedroom mountain lakefront home on the pristine shores of Lake Jocassee. Considered the “Lake Tahoe of the East', the lake lies in the Jocassee Gorges, one of top 50 places National Geographic says one must visit in their lifetime. The waters are clear and fish always stay! • Wake up to breathtaking waterfront sunrises from the private balconies from all en-suite bedrooms and on all levels of the home. • Share sunsets and good times with friends and family on the open, lake-front 830 square feet patio with outdoor fireplace or on the covered patio; • Gather family and friends around to help prepare meals in either of the 2 large kitchens or outdoor grill that rival even the finest restaurants; • Private elevator access available to all floors (although its use is restricted); as well as a tram system that runs from parking to dock makes this an ideal retreat for all ages. • Outdoors: Ski, jet ski or cruise the crystal waters of Lake Jocassee. Discover waterfalls, swim, fish and water ski … or just relax with friends and family. Access to the lake is limited so there are plenty of places to tube or learn water skiing without being overwhelmed by boats in this 75 acre lake. There are always things to do and places to explore from The Jocassee Sanctuary! Play competitive miniature golf or horseshoes! • Perfect for a one of a kind getaway with friends, family, or as a corporate retreat! • More information, video and pictures available at thejocasseeclub dot com
