About the property

Our cottage is located directly off of Cherokee Scenic Hwy 11 in Salem, SC. Located adjacent to Keowee Falls - South, a private, gated community. Tucked away in a private, quiet cove, you will find some of Keowee Lake's best large mouth bass fishing! The floating dock directly below the house has moorings for two boats and a ladder to enjoy swimming in this crystal clear lake. Fall Creek Landing is just 5 miles from the cottage and less than 5 minutes by boat.

This location is an outdoor lover's paradise. Within just a few minutes drive you will find some of the SouthEast's most beautiful national forests and rivers. Whitewater Rafting, hiking and mountain biking abound in these beautiful mountains. Although secluded and private, nearby amenities include gas, groceries and even licensing for fishing! We are located on the Salem side of Lake Keowee, approximately 25 miles/40 minutes from Clemson University.

Great Lake Front Cottage Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

July 2016, we rented this place for a family weekend get-a-way. The property has amazing views on a quiet cove where you can swim without the worries of boats. We had a great weekend enjoying the water and really disconnecting focusing our time on just being together. The house was comfortable and had a magnificent dock and balcony for resting and relaxing. There was a little blooper during our stay, but management handled and was more than accommodating. I feel that is when you know what good customer service is when something does not go right how someone handles it. I would stay here again - the place is cozy and the lake with its crystal clear water is amazing. Hope to have the chance to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your response, given our blooper! We hope you can stay again, too. It sounds like you enjoyed the house the way it's meant to, as a quiet get away where you can disconnect and relax.

Gorgeous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Being from this neck of the woods, I know that lakefront properties can vary a lot. This one was perfect for us! My husband commented that it was like staying in a friend's house rather than a rental - lots of creature comforts, extra kitchen supplies, etc. And our dachshund loved chasing the chipmunks and fish shadows. The place was clean, appliances are fairly new, each room as an animal theme...just a really cute place! The walk to the dock is a bit steep for very young kids or some seniors, but that is to be expected this close to the mountains (There are banisters).

The main entertainment is the lake, although the house is well-stocked with videos and games. Having a boat ramp just 2 coves away is a definite plus, as was the mooring tie-outs on the dock. Otherwise, be prepared to drive to grocery stores, movies, restaurants, etc.

Will definitely rent again!!

Perfect lakefront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a weekend away from it all. It was absolutely perfect! Everything was well maintained. The location is quiet and secluded. The private dock was awesome, I was able to rent a boat. Just a GREAT getaway. The booking process was quick and efficient, and the owner very responsive.

Fun Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Cute and comfortable cottage right on the lake. My friends, our dogs, and I had a wonderful time! It is very secluded and peaceful and only a short drive to the nearest park. The cottage is well stocked with just about everything we needed. There is also a very nice market that has just about everything at the entrance of the neighborhood.
