About the property

Spend a weekend, a week or an extended stay at this beautifully crafted home on Lake Cherokee overlooking the pristine Sumter National Forest. Rental includes the use of private boathouse with upper sundeck, canoe, two kayaks and paddle board. Amazing hikes, waterfalls, whitewater rafting and public golf courses nearby. This clean, constant-level private lake is wonderful for swimming and fishing (no permit required). Located two hours northeast of Atlanta and one and half hours from Greenville, SC; thirty minutes to Clemson, SC and Cashiers, NC; forty five minutes to Highlands, NC.

This is a wonderful vacation spot for anyone looking for a retreat from their hectic world. Once you arrive, you will not want to leave, so stop off at the nearest grocery store (about 20 minutes away in West Union, SC) and stock up with everything you need. There are a few locally owned restaurants within 10-20 minutes, but the nightlife primarily consists of evenings on the screened porch or boathouse, grilling out or cooking in.

The open floor plan on the main floor has a great room with wood burning fireplace, a dining area with table that seats twelve and a well-equipped kitchen with granite countertops. The great room opens onto a spacious screened porch overlooking the lake and mountains with comfortable seating and a small dining table.

The master bedroom on the main floor has a king size bed and private bath with garden tub and oversized shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a loft, all with stunning lake views. The front bedroom has a queen size bed and the rear bedroom has a double bed. The upstairs bedrooms share a bath with two sinks and a tub shower. The loft, overlooking the main room, also has a large pull-out couch, gaming table and flat screen television with DVD player and Apple TV.

On the lower level, there is a fourth bedroom with two double beds and a full bathroom. There is also a set of bunk beds in the outer room and a ping pong table. The lower level opens onto the lake and is equipped with a gas grill, charcoal grill and electric smoker.

Other amenities: washer and dryer, gas range, electric oven, warming drawer, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, ice machine, toaster, blender, food processor, WIFI, Apple TV, DVD player, water sourced from private well on property. Property manager next door.

Pets welcome. No smoking. No fireworks.

Beautiful Home. Relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our spring break week on Lake Cherokee. We couldn’t have had a nicer time. The home is beautiful and spacious. We arrived to a spotless place and were welcomed with flowers, wine and unexpected and nice touch. Gene, the property manager and next door neighbor, couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful. We had a couple of minor issues, but he was available at the drop of a hat to help us out. The main reason we picked this home was that it was on a private lake and the owner allowed us to use the kayaks and canoe. The home is located a short distance to parks, waterfalls and hikes. The highlight of our stay was a day trip to Lake Jocassee - a must see for anyone in the area. Overall we highly recommend this Lake Cherokee home to everyone!

**LOVE** this Tamassee Treasure!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lakefront home delivers a perfect vacation! Everything you need is there – bring your favorite eats and drinks and leave the stress behind! The boys caught fish from the dock and loved their canoe adventure on Lake Cherokee. My favorite spot was on the screened porch with a good book and the gentle whisper of windchimes. If the weather surprises you with rain – no worries! There are movies, puzzles, and games in the loft, or everyone can gather downstairs for a ping-pong tourney. Lots of room for everyone to spread out. Amy, the owner, is wonderful to work with through the entire process and Gene, the property manager next door, ensures each guest feels right at home, including fur-babies. We will not travel where our pup isn’t welcome, and it can be difficult to find clean, quality places like this Tamassee home that allows pets. The reservation process was simple. Accurate photos. Serene location. We have a new ‘home away from home’ at Lake Cherokee! Many thanks to the Alcorn family for sharing your blessing with us!!
