About Phil Hester

I built this house and hope to retire here someday and leave it to my children and grandchildren. During this time you get to enjoy what I plan to when I retire.

Phil Hester purchased this house in 2011

Why Phil Hester chose Salem

I love this area of South Carolina its a big secret that is slowly getting National Attention. It is not hard to get to and has a wonderful views and is close to Clemson, Lake Jocassee & Keowee. It has a central location near Charlotte, Greenville, Asheville, Cashiers, Highlands, Atlanta.

What makes this house unique

The Benefits are that you can have the Mountain Views everyday and the lake access to both Jocassee and Keowee are moments away. Its location is very private. You don't need a boat or pontoon you can rent and they place it in & out of the lake for you. Fishing guides available for both lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and I had a wonderful week. Your home is beautiful and all the extras provided were appreciated.

Things like cleaning products for the counters, soap for dishes. paper towels in bathroom, hand soap in bathrooms etc.

We did not cook! Vacation time. Purchased items for the microwave and a salad.

When I print the pictures, I am going to refer to our week at "Morning Glory" house.

Have a great week and if you get to Naples.....keep our phone numbers and give us a call.

Beautiful home set on the side of a mountain with fabulous views and all the amenities you’ll need.

We loved staying at Morning Glory. Perfect location to Cashiers, Highlands, Clemson and many waterfalls. Take the scenic drive up 28 to Highlands for a day of shopping and sight seeing.

We will be back! Thanks, Phil for excellent service.

We (three couples) were in town for the Clemson/Auburn game and stayed at this property.

The house was very clean and well stocked with supplies for a long weekend.

Thank you so much Phil, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

This vacation house was comfortable, clean and convenient. The back porch views were spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Labor Day 2017 weekend at this wonderful place. The views were awesome from the back porch. It was clean and plenty of linens and towels for all. The owner was super helpful and made the experience easy. We had friends and family enough room for 8 people to stay comfortable. The location of the house was close to Devil's Fork State Park and Keowee Lake. We enjoyed the entire stay. We would recommend to stay at this home to everyone.

Wonderful family trip

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house, beautifully decorated. Owner has thought of every detail, including extras that are sometimes over looked. The pictures do not do the house justice, amazing views, great patio and plenty of parking.

Would recommend for family gatherings, plenty of space for everyone.
