  • Family Reunion

    "Thank you for sharing your HOME with us! We celebrated our first family reunion in the Pendleton area and your home provided us a great gathering place for family and friends staying in the home and local motels. The home is located in a very nice community and is very private with lake access, and provides excellent vehicle parking. Thank you Mr. Owner for calling to insure everything at the HOME was ok!"

  • Great Vacation!

    "Our large family group had a wonderful time at this rental house recently. The house was so clean, beautiful and well decorated.We especially enjoyed the beach area and the dock. Some had fun kayaking and fishing while others relaxed on the patio with a great view! I would recommend this rental to families or any group who wants to have a fun time at a beautiful lake. It is so convenient to Clemson University where relatives were attending. We would definitely rent this house again."

  • lake Hartwell at its best!

    "Me and a few of my friends from out of town wanted to rent a lake home on Hartwell. It was Labor day weekend and very last minute just two days prior to arrival that I contacted Making Waves. It was a very easy process and everyone I talked with was helpfull to make our vacation possible. The house was on a beautiful section of the lake with great water colour and clarity. The boat dock was perfect for getting sun and swimming. There is even a very nice boat that is available for rent with the property. We did not rent it this time but will the next. Overall a great experience and I can't wait to return with my family this fall."

  • Absolutely perfect vacation!

    "Jenny was absolutely wonderful to work with....always a quick response with great information. The condo was beautiful and very spacious....Jenny the pictures just don't do it justice! There were 5 of us for the week, and we had room to spare. The furnishings were comfortable, everything was clean, the kitchen was extremely well-equipped. If anything, we felt like we didn't have time to use all of the amenities. We brought our boat along, so spent most of our time out on beautiful Lake Keowee. We did play ping pong a few times, but never got the kayaks out (a big regret). We did use the pool twice and played tennis once. For anyone bringing a boat to use during your stay, the slip is very nice, but a bit of a distance from the condo. We loaded everything we needed into the car and drove down to the slip each day, and it worked out beautifully. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!!!"

Whitewater Lake Travel Tips

Perfect Moments: Whitewater Lake Vacation Rentals

Is there anything more perfect than the first morning of vacation? You've arrived. You've unpacked. You've had your first good night's rest in weeks, possibly months. Now imagine that you are waking to early sun shining on a lake, the sound of fish jumping in the water. Welcome to your getaway in one of the Whitewater Lake vacation rentals.

The Whitewater Lake vacation rentals are located in Upcountry South Carolina. It is close to Oconee State Park which is close to Chattahoochee National Forest. In addition to enjoying a beautiful lakeside view from one of the Whitewater Lake vacation rentals, you will also be able to spend time hiking, biking and enjoying nature in the state park.

The Peace of Savings

It's difficult to enjoy your vacation if you know that you'll be returning home to a drained bank account or a maxed-out credit card. You can save yourself the financial hangover by staying in one of the Whitewater Lake vacation homes or one of the quaint Upcountry South Carolina cottages, which are perfect for small families.

Instead of eating all of your meals in a restaurant, live like a local by shopping at the markets and making your own favorite dishes. Not only will you be saving money, but you will also be salvaging your peace of mind. After all, what is the use of a vacation if it just leads to more stress afterwards?

All of the Whitewater Lake vacation rentals and Upcountry South Carolina cottages come equipped with kitchens, and many of them also have laundry facilities. This can be especially useful for those who plan on enjoying the outdoors, rain or shine, and those traveling with small children. While doing a load of laundry on vacation might not seem like heaven, it's much better than facing a hotel laundry bill, so toss in a load of clothes, put up your feet, and enjoy.
