Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. We took 13 total (8 adults, 5 kids) and had plenty of room. Nice, clean, well-appointed house inside and out. Plenty of porch space, nice fire pit, and great two level floating dock. Would rent again. Five stars.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Rock House on Lake Keowee. The house was accommodating to the needs of our family. Fishing, boat rides, dinner on the deck, card games, swimming, & sleeping in. It was a great place for our family to spend time together and enjoy the week!

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

Came with some extended family for graduation- looking to avoid squeezing into some over-priced hotel rooms. This home has room to sleep dozens- it seems. Plenty of sleeping as well as family social space in the house. And multi-level outdoor space included 2 enormous decks, a fire-pit area, and a two-level dock with great seating area. All of these had lake views.

We had about 30 people for barbecue and still plenty of room.

Everything impeccably clean when we arrived and everything worked as advertised and up to par. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone looking for alternative to Clemson area chain hotels if you have a few people. Only 20 min to campus- easy drive.

Perfect for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just ended a wonderful vacation with family staying at the Rock House. There was plenty of room for sixteen family members with ages ranging from 18 months to 74 years. Very nice location; not too close to town but not too far away either. The house was very well kept, comfortable and inviting; just like walking into home. Beautifully appointed with a collection of children's artwork and full of surprises. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking several full meals during our stay. The Writer's Retreat was perfect for the young adults to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main house. We loved the access to and from the lake as far as the steps to the dock were concerned. They were not too steep which made the walk back up to the house much more bearable! The kids loved fishing and jumping and swimming off the dock. We explored the lake from boat, and found the Jumping Rock. We also found the Lighthouse Restaurant and Keowee Marina, not to mention several waterfalls in the area, including Lake Jocassee.

Dave and Lucy thought of everything to make our stay pleasant. Dave was excellent at communication and was available by phone or text to answer any questions and discuss any concerns. Only bad thing was we didn't want to leave. Great place to stay and will for sure stay here again if it's available next time we go to Lake Keowee.

PERFECT for Graduation Weekend - I'd rate it a 10 if I could!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our two oldest kids and my friends son were graduating from USC and Clemson over the weekend. With the volume of family and friends coming into town, it was more financially feasible to rent a house on Lake Keowee. We picked the Rock House as it had the ability to host 17 of us overnight, and it had space to celebrate with us and about 33 more visitors for the Saturday afternoon party. WE HAD A BLAST! The Writer's Retreat was perfect for our college kids and their friends, while the house was fantastic for three couples and our two little kids. Though we did catering from Moe's for the graduation party, we used the kitchen a lot on the other days and it was very well stocked for cooking. Most everyone hung out on the decks or the dock, and we even used the kayaks. A friend brought a boat over so the boat rides on the lake, especially during sunset, were stunning. The indoor accommodations were beautiful (Dave should put some pics up on this site).

I cannot say enough good things about this house and it's property. Dave was wonderful to work with, and quickly responds to emails. I wish I still lived in SC so we could go back more frequently!!! Maybe we'll get a chance to rent during some visits for CU football games - GO TIGERS!
