Serenity Cove on Lake Keowee - Wonderful Lake House on Beautiful, Peaceful Cove

Bedrooms 5

Space 3,200 sq ft
Property type house

About the property

Bring your boat, or just enjoy the lake from our covered dock. We are a five minute boat ride from the South Cove boat ramp and only ten minutes from Keowee Marina.

Our quiet, secluded cove is very deep and the water level off the end of the dock is between 15-20 feet year round. This is one of the nicest coves on the lake.

Enjoy the sunset over the lake from our large screen porch or deck below. This family friendly, 5BR/3.5BA Lake Keowee home will easily accommodate two to three families and sleeps 14 to 16 in beds.

You'll have an excellent view of a secluded, deep water cove from the large screened-in porch, from the master bedroom, family room, bunk room and guest room.

About Keith & Brenda Rutledge

We have been looking for a Lake Keowee property and when we saw this one it was love at first sight. The house is all on one level with beautiful views from almost every room. We bought the home with a full rental season already scheduled, but we are looking forward to including our own personal touches and making sure all renters have a great experience.

Lake Keowee is a sparkling clean, gorgeous lake with clear mountain views. Your family will love boating, swimming, and enjoying the clear water and the clean mountain air.

Keith & Brenda Rutledge purchased this house in 2017

Why Keith & Brenda Rutledge chose Seneca

The view is breath taking and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The previous owner called this the Serenity House and that sums it up.

Located on one of the nicest and quietest coves on the lake, this house is built to provide a family with a wonderful family time.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, private, calm water, level lot (once you drive down the driveway), and house on one level. Very open floor plan and lots of good outdoor space. Fully functioning kitchen for those who like to cook.

The house is less than 20 minutes from Death Valley. Because the house is west of Clemson, there is significantly less gameday traffic into the stadium and parking areas than when coming from other directions. Jazz on the Alley in Seneca on Thursday evenings is a great family event ( If Lake Keowee isn't quite enough, Lake Jocassee is less than 1/2 hour away. Lake Jocassee is a unique and uniquely beautiful mountain lake that feeds into Lake Keowee. The damming of Lake Jocassee was the actual basis for the book and movie "Deliverance".

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

I took 10 men on a boating & golfing weekend. Sounds crazy right? This house was perfect, everyone had thier own bed, there were plenty of bathrooms. we cooked most of our meals there and the kitchen was well stocked with all the pots, pans & utensils we needed. The dock is on deep water & the lake is incredible, very clean water & has beautiful mountain views. I plan to return as soon as possible!

vacation at the cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house.

The house and screened porch were very roomy

The water was warm.

We discovered several things that needed repair but the owners were very polite and grateful for the information I provided and responded quickly, made said they made the repairs the day we left.

We definitely would love to stay there again.

This lake house is beautiful, peaceful, and exactly what we wanted for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the view from the screened-in porch every morning, as well as evening. There was not a lot of boat traffic and the neighbors were very quiet, so we felt like we had this area to ourselves most of our stay. The house was very clean and had plenty of space for us. The kitchen is very well stocked with plenty of cook ware, dishes, and cooking tools. The owners have been great responding to our questions and have made our first experience with VRBO completely positive. All of our kids want to go back next year!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, spacious, well stocked home in a quiet neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the screened in deck looking out at the lake while having breakfast. The owners answered all our questions quickly and were very helpful with information. We would definitely rent this home again if the occasion arises. Thank you for a great stay!!

Great relaxing home right on the lake and with plenty of room to spread out.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space for a large group. We were able to all eat at the same table and were not in each other's way while cooking, cleaning up, showering, or lounging around. The house is very clean and cozy. Thank you for a wonderful set up for a large group. We definitely enjoyed ourselves.
