About the property

This 4 BR 4 1/2 bath waterfront hom in the gated Cliffs Community is so peaceful

This home is very comfortable and great layout to accommodate a large family or a couple families. All BR's have private baths along with main floor 1/2. Privacy and Serenity is how many describe this home located on a private dead end culdesack in a gated community. Only 8 homes on the road and the front of the home looks over a common area field and Vinyards.

Once you step into the home and see the views of the lake and quiet cove on the beautiful end of Lake Keowee, you may not want to go home. The views are spectacular, and the water and private dock and beach are just steps away. Bring your own boat or talk with me about using my pontoon. I also provide floats, life jackets, a 1 person Kayak, a 3 person Kayak, a 3 Person Canoe and paddle boards for use during your stay. Also lots of floats and other lake equipment you'll find fun like horse shoes and Cornhole.

The water off the back of the home is a private cove with only 6 homes to the left of my dock and hardly any boat traffic. The sunsets and stars at night will amaze you.

The kitchen is stocked with all the cooking supplies and utensils you will need and there is a second refrigerator in the attached 2 car garage.

About Bill Russell

I'm an active single father of 3 who owns a business but takes great personal pride in my homes I have on VRBO - HomeAway. It will fell "like home" if you chose to stay at one of my locations because I live in each of them throughout the year and keep them in great shape. IF there is anything you need, just ask.

Bill Russell purchased this house in 2017

Why Bill Russell chose Sunset

Location! In this beautiful gated community, just driving into the home is spectacular. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac looking across at an open field and . Homes to the left and right are situated perfectly to provide privacy and the rear is right on the water in a short cove shared by a few other homes. Very private, safe and secluded from the normal hustle and bustle of loud lake front homes.

The layout is great. Lots of privacy and the screened in porch overlooking the water is amazing. Kids can be swimming down at the lake, off the dock, or kayaking around the water and they will always be in your sight. (coming from a protective father). The water is perfect, and clean and the mountain views around the lake and the entire area in general is just breathtaking.

Across the lake about 100 yards is all protected state owned land so the views will always be the same looking out over the lake.

What makes this house unique

I rent this house and throw in all my "water toys" to use on the water. A dozen life jackets, lots of other fun "floaty things", a 3 person Kayak, a fishing Kayak, a 3 person canoe, adding two paddle boards, a Corn Hole Game which is fun in the driveway or even the garage on a rainy day, and many others but just show up and it will be a great time.

Absolutely stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you see in the pictures and more. It’s very quiet, far away from the main road and away from the main part of the lake. No loud trucks going up and down the highway and no jet skis going around in circles in front of the dock. It’s very secluded and gives the impression that the lake is all yours. It’s all woods across the water. The amount of wildlife in the area was great to see. We saw countless deer, ducks, turkeys, squirrels, and a few beavers. There were a few bass to catch towards the center of the cove, a few brim around the rocks, but you will be amazed by the numbers of catfish. Numerous catfish were caught. The largest was 20 pounds and it was thrown back so good luck!! If you venture out in the kayaks keep to the left and find where the creek comes into the lake. It’s cool to feel the change in water temperature as you get to where it enters into the lake. Don’t forget go out at night and look up. Being away from the city lights gives you a breathtaking view of the night sky.

The house itself was great. Everything works. With 4 baths I was afraid there would not be enough hot water, but I was proved wrong. The internet service is faster than what I get home in Raleigh. Outside the neighborhood cell phone service(Verizon) was almost nothing, but at the house it was great. Grilling on the porch with the view was wonderful. All the necessities were there to prepare meals, and eat. We choose to stay home and eat. Most restaurants are towards the Seneca area. Closet grocery store is in Pickens. Its 24 mins away, but it’s a great drive through the country.

If a boat is available, I suggest 2 places on the lake to eat. The first is “Lighthouse.” It’s about a 30 minute cruise down the lake on the left hand side. The restaurant on the top of the hill has a very nice menu of surf and turf options. Beer and wine selection is great, and the shrimp and grits is top notch. If you are in for a slightly less fancy option there is also the “Cabana” below the lighthouse which is mainly bar foods and brews. If you are up for a real adventure, the “tiki hut” is an excellent place to find something to eat and drink. It is a bit over an hour to get there and you will need to leave with plenty of fuel. It’s all the way at the southern end of the lake. Next to their dock is the fuel dock, so you can gas back up there.

The owner was very welcoming and accommodating. Nothing was a problem. I would not hesitate to book with him again.

It was a wonderful home to have our holiday in!

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and spread out. Plenty of rooms/bathrooms for our needs. The dock was perfect for us to pull our boat up to so we could go cruising the lake. Wonderful little village like area with a quaint playground for the kids (it was a little young for my 7 year old, but the 2 year old loved it). Beautiful views and everything we needed was waiting for us. Over all it was a very nice experience and we would rent from Bill again. He was helpful and let us know the ins and outs we needed. 10 out of 10!
