Lake Jocassee house description

******** NEWS FLASH **********

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC names JOCASSEE GORGES #9 in '50 of the WORLD'S LAST GREAT PLACES', Destinations of a Lifetime November 2012 issue.

The water level will be 10 to 25 feet down from full pool, which means absolutely nothing to a mountain lake that is 310 feet deep! You want the lake to be down at least 15 feet because it exposes hundreds of beautiful secluded beaches! The only complaint we ever had in 9 years was the summer the water level was at full pool and there were no beaches to park a boat and explore. We don't hang out at the dock, we explore new beaches every day! 50 yards out from my dock is 60 feet deep. The dock is always in at least 10 feet of water.

You'll love Lake Jocassee's crystal clear mountain water and secluded sandy beaches. Enjoy the Southeast's best kept secret! Stay in one of only seven homes that rents to the public on the 75 mile shoreline that has a total of 45 homes. Wilderness abounds as only 2 miles of shoreline is developed!!

This house has the feel of a Montana mountain retreat. Just steps away, your private dock with ladder and boat tie up is in a secluded cove where you can enjoy swimming and boating in the crystal clear water. The kids will love the 4 kayaks. ! Do you want to water-ski in the middle of the day on the weekend? No problem, no boat traffic!! You can't do that at Lake Burton or Lake Lanier! Adventurous? Park your boat at the head of one of five major trout streams, and enjoy a cool afternoon of rock hopping and trout fishing. Feeling lazy?

Park your boat at one of nine waterfalls which feed directly into the lake and nap with the soothing hum of falling water where the temperature is 10 degrees cooler than the main body of water. Love to hike? Trailheads are on the lake and two miles from the house. After a fun filled day on the water, come back to your home where you can swing in the hammock and admire the sunset as you BBQ on your 50 foot x 16 foot deck overlooking the cove and dock. NEW THIS YEAR is free trailer storage in a fenced compound 2 miles from the boat ramp at Blue Ridge Boat Storage, 160 Jocassee Lake Road, Salem, SC

                        A great escape! Quiet, spacious, very comfortable. Went for a hike and canoe, dinner 1 night at Cashiers, but mostly just relaxed and recharged.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                        My family and I stayed for a week, and even though it rained a LOT there was plenty to do at the house to keep the kids & adults entertained. A big tree fell and blocked the road, but the owner (Trey) had it cleared for us that same afternoon. He was quick to respond and went out of his way to make sure we had a great vacation. We had a boat, and you can't leave your truck/trailer at Devil's Fork overnight, so it was a huge hassle to gas up / drain the boat when we needed to, but besides that it was a great vacation in a very nice house on a beautiful, clean mountain lake.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, pet owners, sightseeing, families with young children.

                        Owner response: Included with my house rental r, 3 miles from the boat ramp is a space to leave your trailer at Blue Ridge Guide Service boat storage. Located at 160 Jocassee Lake Road. It is a fenced and locked, secure boat stoarge.

                        We stayed at this property for our daughter's birthday and my cousin met us there with her husband and 3 kids. There was plenty of room for all of us! I'd say this is the best location on Lake Jocassee with great views! We'd recommend this house to everyone.

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: We love coming to Lake Jocassee year round. Our 2 boys like all the water sports in the summer, and hiking, hunting and dirt bike riding in the fall, winter and spring.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Jocassee:
                      Lake Jocassee has only 45 homes on the entire lake!!!!!!! THE FAMOUS LAKE BURTON HAS 1200 HOMES and is a 60% SMALLER LAKE. National Geographic magazine named, Jocassee Gorges the # 9 out of 50 of the Worlds Last Great Places in it November 2012 issue Destinations of a Lifetime!!!!!!! Very little boat traffic, sandy beaches and the clearest lake water in the SE!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house is not in direct view of another home. Located at the base of Fisher Knob mountain it is a beautiful walk to the top climbing 800 feet in elevation in one mile.The dock is located in a beautiful private cove. The lakeside deck runs the length of the house providing beautiful views of the NC and SC mountains
