About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)
In addition to two bedrooms with king beds, and one with a queen bed, there is a comfortable queen-sized swing bed (on a ceiling-suspended platform) on a sleeping porch, and a bunkroom with 4 beds. One of the king-sized rooms also has an additional set of bunk beds, and each floor has a queen sofa bed (new, firm memory foam mattresses), most comfortable for one adult or two children, of course. In addition, there is a pack-n-play for infants, and a futon mattress which can be used for extra sleeping space.
Master with one king
Lower level (daylight, walk out basement):
Bedroom #2: queen bed, private bath across the hall
Bedroom #3: king bed and bunk beds, jack and jil bath shared with bunk room
Bunk Room: 4 bunk beds
futon under master bed
2 x queen sleeper sofas (memory foam mattresses are actually pretty comfortable)
Outdoors, there is a two-level deck, with shady and sunny areas.
The dock is a double decker with a covered slip and an uncovered slip. There's also a wave runner float lift.
Mostly, you'll want to spend the days on the lake, or retreat to the quiet seclusion of the cabin itself. Aside from a rarely-occupied log cabin next door, the nearest house is across the lake! In the summer, there are many lake activities available. Many nearby activities (golf, hiking, shopping) are available.
We are *not* TV people, but there is a flat screen TV on each floor (36" and 50", I think). There is no cable in the area, but we have basic DirecTV. While there is a DVD player, VHS player, and satellite receiver, it may not be the best place for TV watching or TV watching parties (eg, sports events). Wifi is via a Verizon "Jet Pack". We have a large data plan, but we do sometimes have to purchase more data as needed for renters. (Please go easy on us with the streaming!)
The community paid a fortune to bring in county water in 2014, so all our water filters are obsolete. We still have a separate kitchen drinking water filter (RO). We think it's better than bottled.
The property is about a 30-minute drive from Clemson, SC, a 40-minute drive from Seneca, SC, 50-minute drive from Greenville, SC, and about 45-minutes from Cashiers, NC.

We love having kids and friends' children join us at the lake. However, there are many special risks to children at any lake home. Please inform the owners of any children which will be staying at the home or visiting, for special advice re: prudent use of the home. We want this to be a SAFE and enjoyable experience for all our guests!...moreless

This house, at the north end of Lake Keowee, is remote. The nearest grocery is Ingles in Pickens, 13 miles, though there is a nice, smaller market closer on Hwy 11 (the Market) at the entrance to "Falls South".
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are a family of 5 who live in Greenville, SC. We work too much to enjoy the house as often as we would like. Renting it out allows us to afford upkeep and taxes (whew!). We genuinely love the thought of people up there enjoying it in our absence. We are old-school VRBOers. We do not have a professional management service, and can't always provide concierge services, but while you're guests at the house, our house is your house. Overall, we've had a very enjoyable experience as owners on VRBO. It's fun to get feedback about the great vacations on the lake!
Why the Owner Chose Sunset, SC, USA:
I grew up near Surfside Beach, SC, and my family would spend weekends there. We wanted something close by to make family memories. Love cool, clean, scenic Keowee!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is truly remote. Sometimes we feel like it's the only place we get away from it all. The house has a way of sucking the desire to work right out of you. The only people you're likely to see are the people across the cove. The wifi is only recently good enough to do any significant work online. Cell service wasn't even reliable until about 5 years ago. We reluctantly got TV service about the same time.
