We have great water for swimming and boating right off our front deck. We have a sand beach area with steps to the water, a fire pit for the evenings, and a covered boat slip.

This special home completed in May of 2007 has a main floor great room with a gas fireplace, with a great view overlooking the lake. The main floor kitchen overlooks the lake as well and is completely furnished with everything other than paper products.

Why The Owner chose Seneca

Our family is from Michigan and grew up on the big water of the great lakes. Moving to the south and finding a fresh water lake like Lake Keowee with water clarity found in North Michigan was a real treat.

What makes this house unique

Shopping in the very unique mountain town of Highlands with quality shops, only 45 minutes away.

Don't miss downtown Seneca Ram Cat Alley

Great local eateries

Great amenities and location

  • 5 of 5

Home was perfect for our family birthday on the lake. Great views, decks and only 15 minutes by water from the marina. We rented a pontoon for the weekend and explored the beautiful lake. Well stocked with everything needed, clean and well furnished. Highly recommend!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at your home this summer . The house was clean, well decorated and comfortable. The location was wonderful! We loved being steps away from the dock from the lower deck. We loved the porches, especially the top porch with the nice big table . Although there was a lovely table inside, I think we ate out on the big green table every night . The fan and the shade was perfect even in hot July !

Awesome Location, Terrific Home

  • 5 of 5

Robin & Kay,

We can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely home. You have a great location and a beautiful home. We came up for a long weekend and the Clemson vs Ga Tech game and had a blast. The view straight down the channel with the geese coming in is fantastic. Very calm and relaxing. Home was everything and more than we expected. Thanks for all your help, you were very accommodating. The lake is so beautiful this time of year! Thanks again!

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Keowee and we were unfamiliar with the area. On the advice of a colleague who visited last year I searched for the perfect home on the lake and this was definitely IT! We rented a boat from a nearby marina and toured the entire lake. We found the waterfalls and kids diving off the rock cliffs. Our kids were tubing and swimming in the warm waters of the lake. Early mornings on the porch sipping our coffee and taking in the scenery. The kids enjoyed the lower level playing pool, card games and PacMan. My husband enjoyed photographing the wildlife. Evenings were relaxing in the comfort of the home. Televisions in every room to enjoy the NBA finals! This was truly a great vacation home and will return again and extend our stay as one week is surely not enough!

Family Reunion / 80th Birthday Party

  • 5 of 5

Robin and Kay,

WOW...The Second Stay only got better!!! We stayed at your amazing home two years ago and had a great time. When looking for a spot for my Fathers 80th Birthday celebration your house was the first thing that came to mind. We had family travel from all over the country and access to airports for everyone was wonderful. We had 3 generations together for a week of water sports and relaxation. When asked what was everyone's favorite thing they did it was a mix bag of sitting around the fire pit, boating/water sports, cooking in your UNBELIEVABLY equipped kitchen, hiking or just hanging out on the deck catching up. YOUR HOUSE WAS PERFECT!! However, I think the favorite thing hands down was your Aquaglide (all generations). We never laughed so hard trying to get on it! It brings a big smile to my face now as I remember all the fun we had. The memories will forever stay with us. Thank you so very much for opening your home to us. We will be back again for sure!!!

Great layout, nicely outfitted home, and perfect space for kids

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the house was ideal for us, with enough private space for the adults to sleep upstairs and the kids on the main and basement levels. The house is fully outfitted and we had everything we needed to cook meals. We enjoyed cooking s'mores in the fire pit area and having a lot of outdoor decking for dinners and other meals. The house has also been done very nicely and we really enjoyed the wood cabin feel and big windows in the living area. The kids really appreciated having their own space and they used the pool table and Pacman machine every day.

There were a few things we didn't like so much about the house and area: 1- The water is not very private, as there are many docks and a boat launch very close by, so if you're looking for a more private swimming area, you'd be better off somewhere else. 2- There was a house being constructed next door, and we were awoken around 7am on several days due to construction noise (not ideal for resting on vacation, as the house under construction is about 30 yards from the window of the master bedroom). 3- There is not much privacy at the house, as the next door neighbors use the dock and the water hose at the house. We weren't expecting this, but on the positive side, the neighbors were very friendly and helpful. 4- We only had one car, so we were able to deal with the parking situation, but if you have more than one car it could be tough to park. Also, the house is at the end of the road and if the neighbors are home, there is nowhere to easily turn your car around.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our lake home was up to your satisfaction. We do have parking for 4 cars and a spot for turn around. The boat dock is only for the the back lots in the development numbering no more than 8 but more often only 4 or 5 boats. Sorry about the construction noise but there is little I can do to stop it. Over the last 6 years this is the first time we have ever had a review less than 5 Stars.
