About The Owner

I am Brent Kerger from Tallahassee, Florida. I am a research scientist for my regular job, but my wife and I invested in rental properties in Florida plus this one in the mountains of South Carolina. We manage and maintain all of our properties personally, and have been doing this successfully for about 15 years in total.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Upcountry

We bought a lot and built this rental property at The Rock at Jocassee because we fell in love with the beautiful area and the fantastic access to waterfalls, lakes, state parks, mountain vistas and wildlife that our family has enjoyed every year. Scenic Highway 11 has more than a dozen state parks including Table Rock State Park which is just a few miles east of our property. Great sites to visit in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee are within an hour's drive. This is really a great location for natural family fun at a very low cost.

What makes this house unique

We built 'Waterfall Dreams' with families in mind. The upstairs has the master bedroom and bath, plus a kitchen, great room and sun room with treetop views in back and foothill/mountain vistas off the front covered porch. There is lots of seating upstairs for feeding a large group and just relaxing in the peaceful mountain environment. The downstairs has three more bedrooms and a game room for the kids, plus a nice deck and BBQ grill out the back door. This is one of only two homes that were built so far in a quiet subdivision off the golf course development. The clubhouse is a mile away and has golf pro shop, restaurant/bar, swimming pool, tennis, and other amenities.

Great rental house in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 6 kids (8 years old and under) for an extended weekend to celebrate my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. The house was perfect for us. It had a well stocked kitchen (besides an old can opener) and lots of towels. There was plenty of space for us to enjoy our time together. We checked out several local state parks and especially enjoyed Table Rock. We also loved the waterfalls just up the street from the house. Thanks for a great stay! Brent and Brenda were both easy to work with and very helpful.

Great spot for a large group.

Only complaint was that it needed blinds or curtains in common areas.

Lots of rooms and light

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our cold March weekend at the house. Plenty of room for everyone (8 adults) and a nice big room for hanging out. Very close to Table Rock State Park. Be sure to shop before you get there - closest convenience store is 8 miles away. Kitchen was well-equipped: toaster; microwave; lots of glasses; and even a crockpot. 3 large bathrooms.

Nice, secluded

  • 3 of 5

Well laid out floor plan; would be nice for kids to hang out downstairs and adults up. We were all adults so just used downstairs for sleeping. Would be nice if there was a deck on the back upstairs for sitting and cooking out adjacent to living area. Enjoyed our stay and boating on Lakes Jocassee and Keowee. Average accomodations

Centrally located, great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I loved staying here. The house is centrally located to lots of things as our main purpose was to go hiking. We visited two waterfalls within the resort (one our dog found on a trail very close to the house) and many others that were within an hour drive. When I saw how big the place was I couldn't believe it was only 1900 sq ft - the main floor that you enter from the front door was perfect for us. We only used the 'main floor' and did not need the extra bedrooms downstairs but the price was great and it's perfect for a large group of people if you have them! Not much tv, but we didn't care. Everything we needed was at the house - they even had a crock pot. The master bedroom bed is very comfortable and the overall home was nicely laid out. I'd love to come back and spend time - perhaps bringing some friends along next time!
