About Mia E

Originally from NY I have always enjoyed vacationing near the water. I moved to and still live in Florida part time, but have always loved lake life. My husband and I fell in love with the Carolinas 4 yrs ago and decided to pursue building our vacation home on Lake Keowee in SC. We completed the home Sept. 2016 and have been loving lake life ever since!

Mia E purchased this house in 2016

Why Mia E chose Salem

This particular lake is managed by Duke energy vs the Army corp of engineers. In short Lake Keowee will always maintain higher water levels. This was very important to us as boaters and preferred that feature compared to other popular lakes nearby.

What makes this house unique

Our location on the lake is secluded and serene yet conducive to easy commutes via road or airline travel. We are 1 hour from Greenville SC and Asheville NC, 2 hours from Charlotte and Atlanta. We love our 2nd home and enjoyed being the general contractor and designer.

Beautiful lake house overviewing lake keowee

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing. We evacuated for the hurricane and were gracefully welcomed by Mia who curteously gave us a tour of our section of their home. They were wonderful hosts who were available to help us at anytime but also gave us our privacy throughout our stay. We will definitely be back for our next stay on Lake Keowee

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful! It is clean, fresh, and New! Decor is simple and uncluttered yet elegant. Views of the lake are breathtaking. Owners sincerely want each renter to be happy, welcome, and comfortable. We will definitely be returning. This is by far the best VRBO we have ever stayed at!
