Located on Cane Creek at beautiful Lake Keowee in Oconee County, this rustic, cozy cabin will take you back in time to a more peaceful, serene, and quiet place. Forget the hectic pace of work, carpooling and deadlines. Rest and reconnect with loved ones and friends. Enjoy deep breaths, long naps, and unscheduled play. Choose from a variety of board games, puzzles, cards, books and movies provided in the cabin, or just relax on the porch swing and absorb the view. In the fall and winter enjoy curling up by the stone fireplace.

The property boast a private deep water dock for easy access to your boat to tie up on the side, or a jumping off place for swimming or floating. Explore the coves and creeks in our canoe, or on the stand up paddle boards located on the dock for your use and pleasure. Nearby outdoor areas not to be missed are Oconee State Park, White Water Falls, Stumphouse Tunnel, and numerous other hiking locations. Bring your fishing gear and enjoy catching a Largemouth or Spotted Bass, among other varieties. Browse through antique stores in nearby Walhalla and check out the weekend auctions at Warther's Originals antique mall.

Restaurants, grocery stores and theaters are located in nearby Seneca, a 10 minute drive, and Clemson, 25 minutes away. Come rest, relax and restore.

About Rebecca Smith

4 sons, 2 daughter in laws, 5 grandchildren, 2 dogs and 1 cat. Very Blessed.

Rebecca Smith purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rebecca Smith chose West Union

We both grew up around the lake and loved sailing, water skiing, swimming and fishing and wanted our 4 boys to have the fun experience of a simple cabin on the water.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quiet. I love getting up early and sitting on the porch swing with my cup of coffee, mesmerized by the tranquil water. Waiting for the occasional splash as a fish jumps, or the hum of a fishing boat going home after an early morning catch is about as exciting as the morning gets.We all love skiing and swimming and fishing from the dock, grilling out and just relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were thrilled arriving to a quaint, clean, log cabin in the woods. Our three days here in your home was so peaceful and comfortable. Swinging on your front porch gave us an experience of going back in time.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect!! So clean and well put together. The dock and paddle boards were an awesome bonus and they were fully taken advantage of. If we come back to lake Keowee I will 100% try to book this house again

Great lake house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for our South Carolina vacation! It is conveniently located to lakes, waterfalls, whitewater rafting, and many other outdoor activities. We enjoyed the pier for swimming, tubing, canoeing, paddle boarding and just afternoon "floating". We took daily excursions to the Chatooga River, Sliding Rock, Turtleback Falls, Lake Jocassee, and boating on Lake Keowee. Our grandkids had a blast and we made many memories. The lake house was well furnished and stocked with everything we needed. We cooked dinner each night. The owners were attentive to our requests and needs and easy to work with.. Great spot for a family vacation! We hope to return!

Perfect place for family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mom's 75th birthday at the Smith Cabin, and had a fantastic time. The location is perfect and situated nicely from major SE cities like Atlanta, Columbia, and Charlotte. The cabin has everything you need. Porch is a dream, and makes you feel that you're tucked away in the mountains. We spent the most amount of time in the lake and in the kitchen! Wonderful.

This cabin is awesome!! It was so comfortable and clean. Also, had a rustic feel to it and the lake was beautiful. We had everything we needed. I wish we could have stayed longer. The Smiths are great to work with and this place is very family oriented. We cannot thank you enough for a great weekend!!!

Very satisfied,

What an amazing home this is!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway, cozy and comfortable. The house, the dock, the lake... everything was perfect for us! We had plenty of room and beds for teenagers who went outside and went exploring on the canoe and reconnected with us and each other (and actually put down their phones!) I could see us making frequent visits out there. The owner was incredibly pleasant and we thank her for opening her home to us! That's exactly what this is.... a HOME.

Very nice lake front cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the location on Cane Creek. The cabin is very nice with a wonderful screened porch. Great setup for family trips. We caught several spotted bass from the dock. A great stay!
