'A Stay Away' (the phonetic Cherokee language translation of 'Cedar Creek', the branch of Lake Keowee on which the property is located) is a true Mountain Lake Vacation Home. It is a 4000 sq ft, Lindal Cedar Home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large, open common spaces, a stone fireplace, spacious kitchen, and ample sleeping areas. The house was renovated in 2009, and the kitchen got new appliances in 2011.
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
4-season porch with suspended queen "swing bed"
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.
