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

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Space 3,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


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 Indian Oaks

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".

Great Property for Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family includes children aged six to 19, and six adults. We rented the home to be near family in Seneca for the Christmas Holiday and couldn't have been happier with the property. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer to enjoy the lake and the fire pit! The beds were plentiful and comfortable and the kitchen was large enough for three people to work in and still have space. We also found it to be well-equipped. The large dining room was also very nice.

While the bunk room was only accessible through a bathroom, all four boys enjoyed having their own private quarters. (It is also accessible through the garage, and would work well in warm weather as it also had its own bath.)

The Rutledges were welcoming, responsive owners and very accommodating. In fact, we had to contact them late in the evening on Christmas Eve, and they responded quickly with information we needed. We would certainly recommend this to any large family group and are considering a return trip here over the summer.
