Recent Upcountry property reviews

  • Very nice home, secluded area

    "We had a wonderful stay at this home over the weekend. It's in fantastic shape, with nice furniture/decor, and is well stocked with items some vacation rentals tend to skimp on like hand soap, towels, linens, etc. We especially enjoyed the large deck overlooking the back yard and the cove. We didn't have a golf cart like the other reviewer and had to huff it up and down the hill to get to the cove. However, the owner did provide info on how to arrange for a rental cart, which I would suggest for those with mobility issues or a lot of gear to take to the lake. We also rented a boat at the nearby marina. The house is well positioned for a variety of lake destinations easily reachable by pontoon boat. When we didn't have the boat, we had fun swimming and floating in the cove or just hanging out on the dock. We even took the "Scanoe" out for a spin. There seemed to be a lot of fish in the water, but none of us took a stab at using the provided fishing poles. The owner was very easy to work with, and always got back to me promptly on any questions we had. She was also very reasonable in accommodating our pets. There are plenty of TV's, and Sprint/AT&T/Verizon signals were good (not T-Mobile), but we did wish there had been WiFi available. Overall, highly recommended."

  • Wedding Party

    "We had a family wedding in Greenville and found this rental to be so much better than staying at a downtown hotel. Three generations of family were able to stay here comfortably. We were just minutes from the downtown area, but did not have to deal with parking issues and fees! The rooms are much nicer then the photos are able to show. They are roomy and the linens are the finest! The owner was so sweet an able to recommend activities since she lives locally! She provided coffees and snacks. It was all quite luxurious. I would definitely recommend this rental! Must sees: Reedy River area, Mast General Store, along with other downtown boutiques and gift stores like The Pink Azalea. Restaurants: The Lazy Goat, Brick Street Cafe, Augusta Grill, Larkins on the River and for ice cream afterwards Marble Slab Creamery. Make sure you ask about The Mice on Main scavenger hunt downtown that starts at the Hyatt!"

  • The Best

    "Our family rented this house for 2 weeks to visit our sick father who lives in Seneca. We were all pretty much stressed out, but staying here even made it seem like a vacation. The photos and description are exactly as stated. It is a slightly older home, but has been remodeled and is clean, well kept and well equipped! The owners are absolutely the best. They are very nice and easy to work with, and were very helpful even with things not pertaining to the house. I would recommend this rental to anyone. In fact, our sister and her family who are local, are thinking about renting it. (They usually rent a house and drive out to an island for vacation.) The use of the lake and boats are a great addition. Although the house is located in a secluded and peaceful area, it is close to everything, Thank you Ron and Carolyn for everything!"

  • Guys Weekend

    "We came to this house for a guys weekend, and it was GREAT! We brought kayaks and used the canoe there to explore and play on the lake. We fished, cooked, and relaxed - just what we needed. The house was has nice rustic architecture with an open feel with plenty of room for large parties (we had 8). Yet you could always get away from the crowd if you needed your own space in the bedrooms. The location was also great! We ventured out to Highlands, NC, was close to the Chatooga river, and saw Issaqueena falls and Stumphouse tunnel. The owner was always an email away if we had any questions and answered quickly. (PS there isn't cell service there with Verizon, but we were allowed to used the house line for long distance at no extra charge - that was a big help!) Will definitely recommend this place to those looking for a great mix of peace and quiet and activities."

Upcountry Travel Tips

South Carolina Upcountry Lodging in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, South Carolina Upcountry vacation rentals are found in a wonderful location. The "Upcountry" is made up of the counties of Oconee, Pickens, Greenville, Anderson, Spartanburg and Cherokee. Visitors to this unique paradise may wish to use Greenville/Spartanburg airport which is served by most major airlines. For those looking to drive here, the region has excellent major roads with I-85 running through the area, connecting to I-385. There are also several highways, such as US 123 (Calhoun Memorial Highway), US 25, US 29 and US 279.

The Upcountry of South Carolina has less subtropical weather than the coast, with hot summer temperatures averaging between the mid-80s to high-90s Fahrenheit. Winters fall below freezing but rain is more likely than snow.

Wonder at the Waterfalls of South Carolina

With at least 25 waterfalls around these South Carolina Upcountry lake rentals, visitors may find at least two vacations here are required to explore them all. Each and every one is well worth the effort it takes to get to them, ranging from an easy hike up to difficult climbs. The Brasstown Falls is a moderately difficult hike, with the reward of three waterfalls. For the more adventurous, head to Long Creek Falls. This 1.6-mile unofficial trail may not be well-marked but the 50-foot cascade is worth the effort. Those seeking a moderately easy walk will find the waterfall at the Station Cove Historic Site is a nice one to start with. An added bonus is the wonderful wildflowers and rare plants growing along the way.

Explore the Mountains, Parks and Towns

There is much to keep even the most demanding visitor occupied around South Carolina Upcountry lake rentals. The obvious attractions are the outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and climbing. However, there is much more on offer in this wonderful region. If visitors want a thrill to remember, the whitewater rafting is amazing! The State Parks here are all worth visiting, with great recreation activities, trails to be explored and lakes to be fished.

Among the many parks is Keowee-Toxaway State Natural Area. This area, with its incredible vistas of the Blue Ridge and woods brimming with wildflowers, rhododendrons, mountain laurel and more, is seriously breathtaking. Here, visitors can hike the trails through the 50,000 acres of undisturbed, protected land to view the 2,000-foot fall where the Blue Ridge Mountains lead to the Piedmont below.

No trip to South Carolina Upcountry vacation rentals will be complete without a visit to Devils Fork State Park. Why? Because it is the only public access to Lake Jocassee, an undeveloped 7,500-acre reservoir hidden deep in the Blue Ridge. This area is great for lakeside fishing, boating, and even scuba diving. While here, visitors should keep the camera handy; they might spot one of the black bears that live here. Hiking the nature trails, visitors should also keep an eye out for the bald eagles and peregrine falcons that swoop through the bright blue skies.

Turkeys and Bobcats and Bears! Oh My!

Imagine waking in your chosen South Carolina Upcountry lodging to watch the wildlife--turkeys, wild boar, deer, racoon and, if you are very lucky, a bear--within an easy drive to the nearest town. These spacious properties provide everything you need to make your dream vacation. Many come with extras such as hot tubs, DVDs and games systems. Visitors with four-legged family members will find a choice of properties that cater to them too. No one is overlooked!
