Why Mike Grandis chose Seneca
Lake Keowee is a huge lake with all kinds of inlets, parks and places to explore. Being close to the town of Seneca is a nice advantage as it provides a small-town feel, with lots of Southern hospitality, but also has all the modern conveniences including two grocery stores, a Super Wal-Mart, lots of great restaurants, a movie theater and a bowling alley. A short way further and you are in the college town of Clemson. We especially enjoy providing accommodations for the fanatic Clemson Tiger football alumni who gather every Fall at our home for Clemson homecoming weekends. There is no lack of things to do between the Lake, the towns, the many state parks, hiking trails, tennis, golf and the list goes on and on.

Best lake house yet
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lake house. We have stayed at other properties on Keowee and none of them compare to this one. The beach/dock area was a huge plus and we loved how accessible it was to get to the water. Having all the other amenities such as the kayaks and fishing poles and movie room just made things even better. Several of us took naps on the screened in porch because it was so comfortable and relaxing. Our fur babies had the best time swimming. We had a slight hiccup with the septic on the last night, these things happen, and the owner was very quick to respond and took care of things right away. We will definitely be back- if there is an opening :)
We enjoyed our short stay at this property to get away from things. It is a beautiful house and very family friendly. It sits on a beautiful deep water cove where you can swim and fish from the dock or sandy beach. It is on a flat lot which is nice for outdoor games and relaxation. In the house, the beds were comfortable each with their own bathroom access. The kitchen is very modern and equipped with everything you need if you plan to cook. In the basement there is a pool table, fuse ball table and movie room with a huge TV. There was also a pinball table but it did not work. If you plan to fish, bring your own gear bc the poles they provide are all broken. Finally, we rented a speed boat from their son Tyler who runs his own boat rental company. He was great as well and delivered the boat to us. Overall I give it a thumbs up!!
Great place and great host!
We spent a long weekend at Mike's place and it was a great expereince. There were a few snags up front, that Mike and his son (Tyler) addressed right away. The house is perfect for families and it has everything you need to cook and entertain right there. The kids fished right off the dock and caught lots of bream. We utilized the kayaks and the canoe. We rented a boat from Tyler, which was a seamless process. I am already planning to come back and visit this summer, if they can fit us in. Thanks again..
The house amenities, condition and location is simply 5 stars. Mike was very responsive to any question or request. I would definitely recommend and stay again!
