About Paulette Chassin

We owned a restaurant and lived in the beautiful U.S. Virgin Islands, yet this is the first time we visited a place where we also wanted to live. After our first visit to Keowee Key, we knew we wanted to return again and again.

Paulette Chassin purchased this condo in 2008

Why Paulette Chassin chose Salem

We bought this condo due to the natural beauty and the still pristine environment. Lake Keowee is one of the cleanest lakes on the eastern seaboard. The landscaping on Keowee Key is stunning, yet very natural. The residents and visitors appreciate the peace and quiet. The community is affordable yet offers so many luxurious amenities. The climate is never severe due to the protection of the nearby Blue Ridge mountain range. Lovely every month of the year.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the fact we do not have to drive to partake of the amenities. Walking on the Leisure Trail, swimming on the small beach on the lake or at the new North Marina outdoor pool, boat/people watching - all just outside our door. But, when we want dinner at the club or to swim at the Olympic size heated indoor pool, it is just a five minute drive. No traffic, no hassles. Being on the top floor, assures no neighbors overhead. Or, we just love to sit at our large bay window in the living room and stare at the natural beauty outside. Waterfalls, other lakes are less than 30 minutes away.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a 2BD property to stay at during our two year old's first Clemson football weekend. This condo was everything we needed and more. Pictures were accurate, but the unit was actually much bigger than it seemed from the photos. Kitchen appliances and TVs are older, but everything functioned well. Owner provided all kinds of toiletries, coffee (Keurig and traditional coffee maker), kitchen tools/dinnerware, towels, and a sweet welcome gift/note for us.

The community amenities were great. There's a ~1mi+ long (one way) paved and lit trail that was perfect for pre-dawn running, calm, sandy beach with chairs, and small playground that was perfect for our family (bucket swing, normal swings, 2 slides, and a small climbing wall). We didn't have time to use them on this trip, but the unit also came with access to other Keowee Key amenities (pools, paddleboards, boats, etc).

Paulette was responsive, professional, and welcoming in all of our communication- one of the best owners we've encountered in our six years of using VRBO for vacation lodging. Check-in/check-out process was very smooth. Beyond that, the drive to Clemson was less than 25min and we encountered very little traffic for the game (not something the owner can control, but a nice perk of coming from the NW instead of Anderson/Greenville). Would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a waterfront retreat or Clemson weekend home!

Owner's Response: We are extremely happy that you were so happy! Thank you very much for writing with such detail so future guests know what to expect. And I never thought about the easy traffic-less drive to Clemson from our direction! You and your family are welcomed back any time. A pleasure serving you.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the perfect place, overlooking the water for spectacular views, right by the walking trail and easy access to the North Gate. I was up looking at the area for a potential move, so I did not spend a lot of time in the condo, but when I did I was comfortable and at home. The owner is VERY communicative and always in touch if you need anything. It was a wonderful stay. Thanks Paulette!

Super comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at the condo in Keowee Key. All arrangements went smoothly and we had everything we needed. The king bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area.

Well-maintained condo with magnificent view, comfortable beds and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We have often stayed at Keowee Key and found this condo to be the best and hope to return again soon. The view of the lake and walking trail from the living room window is magnificent and can also be enjoyed from the covered porch. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom well stocked with hotel-like necessities. Proximity to the walking trail and other amenities (pool, sandy beach, shuffleboard, boat docks, gazebos) is a plus. The access card allows you to easily drive to the Country Club or Fitness Center. The surrounding area abounds with beautiful scenery and down-home eateries as well as a few white table cloth restaurants. Anyone will want their camera accessible because every view is photo-worthy. The owners were prompt, helpful and efficient. My husband and I look forward to visiting Keowee Key again soon.

Absolutely wonderful and relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful 3 night mini vacation at this beautiful condo!! Having never been to Lake Keowee we did not know what to expect, but Keowee Key and Tall Ships surpassed every expectation. The unit was very comfortable, extremely clean, had every kitchen amenity you could think of, the photos and descriptions are 100% accurate and views are incredible. We rented a pontoon boat and paddle boards from the onsite marina and enjoyed exploring the lake. The community is gated and has amenities including a golf course, outdoor pool, beach and nature trail; all of which we utilized and loved. Ms. Paulette was extremely responsive to any questions and provides an excellent notebook in the condo with maps, brochures, menus and points of interest. We would highly recommend The Lighthouse restaurant. Check in was smooth and easy with all of the keys and passes left at the gatehouse. We would highly recommend this VRBO unit and intend to stay again in the very near future.

Quiet, clean, convenient and pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to a stay with our family canine while visiting family in the area. While maybe a bit more than we needed, the condo was perfect and the amenities in the community are very nice. Checking in was no problem and the owners provided a nice book of local attractions and dining options. The Lighthouse is worth a visit for a nice dining experience. We kayaked on Lake Jocassee, rode the Doodle Rail trail from Pickens to Easley and made a lunch visit to Chattooga Belle Farm. We thoroughly enjoyed the area, our accommodations and look forward to a future visit to Lake Keowee. All the folks in the community are very friendly too.
