  • Clemson weekend

    "I was the organizer for our annual trip to Clemson with 2 other families. This house provided the grownups private rooms and the kids had a ball in the basement. The water was still warm enough for swimming which was a plus. This is a very nice and clean house. Great open water and great views. The location is great - close to Clemson and close to lots of places to hike. We all had a great time and would love to rent this place again."

  • Wonderful Lake Keowee Month

    "We spent a wonderful month in this very comfortable and convenient condo. The community is great and their is lots to do in the area. There are many county and state parks within an easy drive with lots of trails and waterfalls to explore. Clemsen, Greenville, and Seneca are close by. I would definitely recommend this property."

  • Beautiful condo with nice views and close by amenities

    "We had the opportunity to spend a 3 day weekend on Lake Keowee as we were on an extended road trip visiting multiple universities with our daughter. Having been to Lake Keowee before, we were looking forward to experiencing a fun filled lake front weekend, and this condo and owner did not let us down. The condo is nicely decorated and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our coffee in the morning overlooking the lake from the balcony. The leisure trail provided a nice path for a morning run and the swimming pool and boat docks were conveniently just a couple of minutes walk away. We had reserved a pontoon boat for the day, but the weather was nasty and we decided to canceled that. Luckily, the next day was nice and we did get a chance to explore the lake. There is golf available on the other side of Keowee Key, but unfortunately, we did not have time for that. It's definitely on the list for our next visit to Lake Keowee."

  • Perfect for families with children over four years old

    "Our family, which included five adults and seven children ages 4 to 13, had a great time at this house over the weekend. It is exactly as pictured. Positives: 1.Everybody agreed that the beds were comfortable. All of them were actual beds; none of them were sleeper sofas. There were plenty of sheets, blankets, and quilts to go around. 2. The "water toys" were a lot of fun. We enjoyed the john boat, canoe, pedal boat, and kayak. It helped that the weather was unseasonably warm: high of 82 degrees one of the days. 3. The house was very lived-in; nothing too fancy which put our minds at ease concerning the children. 4. The ping pong/pool table was well-used by the kids during our indoor hours. 5. We had brought our own games, but if we hadn't it would have been okay because there were quite a few already there. 6. There were plenty of towels to go around if we had kept track of our own towels and used them more than once. 7. The water pressure in the showers was great. 8. There was a basket of goodies on the table welcoming us upon check-in. It was the perfect start to our vacation and such a nice touch. Negatives: 1. The water heater is apparently too small to accommodate 12 people. I was always the first to take a shower in the morning, and by the time I was finished, the water was already cooling off. Several family members commented that their showers had been cold. 2. The kitchen, while well-equipped, was very small. The table in the kitchen only seats four. There is, however, a picnic table on the screened porch. 3. One of the bedrooms in the basement was also the home to the hot water heater (I think) which is out in the open and not in a closet. We didn't feel comfortable having any of the kids sleep in that room because if they had awakened during the night, it probably would have scared them. My brother and sister in law graciously volunteered to sleep in that room, but I'm not sure they slept very well because of the noise. 4. The home is not very aesthetically pleasing. The furniture in the great room leaves much to be desired. There was a comfortable couch but everything else was wicker with vinyl cushions. Nothing in the house matches and there is not even a color scheme of any kind. However, as I said above, it was nice not to be afraid the kids were going to mess anything up."
