About Ethel Pettigrew and Reno Wilson

We are working parents with (almost)grown children. We are very into Clemson University life, sports, cultural events, service projects. I am a CPA and my husband runs a hardware store. We are active in our Church, and our local community. I love to read, garden, paint. My husband loves Sports of all kinds. We love to travel, go antique hunting.

Ethel Pettigrew and Reno Wilson purchased this house in 2007

Why Ethel Pettigrew and Reno Wilson chose Lake Keowee

My husband and I were searching for a respite from the daily grind near Clemson, SC. A friend showed us this place, and we said,'This is it.' It has a breathtaking view. A view you want to wake up to. Have coffee on the deck. Watch the stars at night. We,sometimes, want to get away from the phones and just chill. This is that kind of place, but if we want things to do, they are close enough.

What makes this house unique

We go to the house to get away from the grind. I have taken friends up to play golf and have lunch. We have often spent the night here then gone antiqueing in Cashiers or Highlands or Oconee County stores. Most often we just chill. A water skier would love this house with it's proximity to both Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee. Sea-Doos would be great to use from this house. There are state parks very close by with all the hiking trails. This area has many water falls, White Water Falls being just up the road. Horseback riding is available in the state parks as well.

What amazing place to stay!!! My family age range is from newborn - my grandparents. We all enjoyed our selfs.

I can't even describe the morning sunrise. Wow ! So much to see from the back porch.

Everyone had there own space.

We all felt right at home. We have found a new family gateway.

Please I very much encourage you to book a trip at this magnificent home .

Fabulous home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Super comfortable - 4 bedrooms each with its own private bathroom and comfortable beds. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils. The back deck had plenty of cushioned seating to enjoy the view. And, it is less than 10 minutes to Devils Fork State Park for boating or swimming in Lake Jocassee, the location couldn't have been any better. Thank you Ethel and Reno for sharing your wonderful home.

Church Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful well-kept place! We asked people to slow down, be quiet, and reflect on God - this was the perfect place to do that. I could sense during the application process that I was dealing with fine owners and managers. I was right - there were a few tiny things that some people would have made into contentious issues, but that wasn't the case. A special thank you to the owners and to Reno for allowing me to bring a group into your home. I know that is risky, and I appreciate your kindness. Hope to come back!

Great weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We came for the long Labor Day weekend with friends to attend the first home Clemson game and had a wonderful time at the mountain house! The view is amazing and the house is gorgeous outside and in. We would recommend this house for families, friends or simply a quiet weekend away.

Quilting COWS

Wonderful property with terrific views. Well designed house for a group and was a comfortable place for the weekend. We spent most of our time inside enjoying the company and stitching a little.
