About the Property
House, 8 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 26-32)
Bring up to 32 of your closest friends and family for an idylic vacation. The ultra large dock and upper party deck will accommodate your entire party while you enjoy watching family and friends as they ski and tube in deep water in front of the dock.
Our 5,000 SF all log and wood home provides you with that cozy mountain cabin that you remember when you attended camp in the N.C. mountains as a child except this has many more amenities and upgrades! The home will sleep 26 in beds, 32 counting the two sleeper couches and one futon. HD flat screen TVs are found on both levels and you can watch your favorite baseball or football team play in the lower level game room while playing pool.
The bedroom over the kitchen (2 queen beds), the bedroom with 6 builtin twin size bunks below the kitchen and the master bedroom all have private baths. The kitchen, dining room, great room, game room and all bedrooms have a view of the lake. One of the two 'Dormer' bedrooms adjoins the 'kids' room (as it so aptly named) as it has a crib and two twin beds and the children cannot access the rest of the home without passing through mom and dad's room. There are two bedrooms on the lower level that have two sets of log bunk beds and sleep 4 each in twin size beds.
For those who want to lay back and relax after a hard day on the lake, we offer you a Pawley's Island Hammock and a teak Swing that will allow you and your honey to harmonize with nature as the day fades away.
As your guests begin unwinding from the long day in the sun and on the lake, mom can begin dinner in the ample sized kitchen that includes a range, oven, a prep island, microwave, refrigerator with a second frig on the lower level and pantry space for your food supplies (some of the owner's nonperishables will be stored in the pantry, as well). Between the bar stools in the kitchen island, bar top stools, the dining room table, and three tables on the deck, all 32 of your guests can be accommodated at one sitting.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: The Jacksons are a fun loving family of 6 including Mom (Donna) and Dad (Ken) and four grown children, Jennifer (32), Heather (27), Kenny (26) and Kevin (24), who hail from Asheville, N.C. We all enjoy the outdoors and are avid water and snow skiiers. We also enjoy travel and have traveled as a family to Hawaii, Alaska, Costa Rica, many islands in the Caribean and have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. We have enjoyed ski trips to Colorado, Wyoming, California and Utah to pursue the best powder and snowmobiling! In recent years our family has grown to include Eric (married to Jennifer), Al (married to Heather) and Courtney (married to Kenny). And, our fifth grandchild is on the way and due in march of 2014! Ken and Donna continue to live and work full time in Asheville; Ken as a real estate developer and Donna as a nurse. Ken is originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and Donna from Charlotte, N.C.
Why the Owner Chose Turtlehead (Salem, SC, USA):
We built our home in 2001 for the enjoyment of our family and friends and have rented it occasionally over the years. We use the home all year including for Clemson football weekends in the fall and basketball games in the winter. We love the north end of Lake Keowee as it still somewhat underdeveloped and provides a little more opportunity to get away from it all than other lake communities located adjacent to larger cities. We are completely surrounded by the nationally known Cliffs Communities and the Cliifs at Keowee Falls North provides access to our home. Ken, Kenny and Kevin all attended Clemson earning their degrees there and the family simply cannot ever be too far away from Clemson, including Jennifer and Heather who attended App. State and WCU.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is uniquely situated on a deep water point that provides opportuities to ski and ski out while family members can lay on our unusually large dock and upper party deck. We have 256 feet of shoreline that keeps the neighbors from being to close. We have room at the dock if you wish to rent a ski boat or pontton boat and have space for a jet ski at one of our float on docks. Several companies rent all types of boats in the area and will deliver to our dock. See Jocassee Outdoor Center or try Lake Jocassee Pontooon Boat Rentals. Our family and friends enjoy the view off our back deck towards the lake and surrounding mountains as much as anything else we do on a weekend at the lake. Being an Appalcahian Style log home versus stick built construction makes for a cooler living environment and easier to maintain as there is no drywall to be found any where in the home. Even the interior walls are wood, tongue and groove siding. A small neighborhood shopping center, Keowee Towne Center, is located 5 minutes from our home on Highway 11 in The Cliffs at Keowee Falls South and is open to the public. It has an 8,000 SF gourmet/organic grocery store with an excellent wine selection plus the best beef and steaks found in the upstate. On those vacation days when you are too lazy to prepare meals, drive over and order breakfast or lunch from their well stocked kitchen. An Ace Hardware store and can also be found in the center. Gas can be purchased on the lake about 1 mile from our home directly adjacent to the Lake Jocassee dam at the Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards marina. They also have a store that offers a variety of boating supplies and has a limited lunch menu and drinks. We are a 5 minute drive from Scenic Highway 11 and a 35-45 minute drive to Clemson University and the beautiful mountain communities of Highlands, Cashiers and Brevard.
