Property description

Stay with us at The Jocassee Sanctuary, the spectacular, elegant yet comfortable 5 bedroom mountain lakefront home on the pristine shores of Lake Jocassee. Considered the “Lake Tahoe of the East', the lake lies in the Jocassee Gorges, one of top 50 places National Geographic says one must visit in their lifetime.
The waters are clear and fish always stay!
• Wake up to breathtaking waterfront sunrises from the private balconies from all en-suite bedrooms and on all levels of the home.
• Share sunsets and good times with friends and family on the open, lake-front 830 square feet patio with outdoor fireplace or on the covered patio;
• Gather family and friends around to help prepare meals in either of the 2 large kitchens or outdoor grill that rival even the finest restaurants;
• Private elevator access available to all floors (although its use must be pre-approved); as well as a tram system that runs from parking to dock makes this an ideal retreat for all ages.
• Outdoors:
Ski, jet ski or cruise the crystal waters of Lake Jocassee.
Discover waterfalls, swim, fish and water ski … or just relax with friends and family. Access to the lake is limited so there are plenty of places to tube or learn water skiing without being overwhelmed by boats in this 75 acre lake. There are always things to do and places to explore from The Jocassee Sanctuary!
Play competitive miniature golf or horseshoes!
• Perfect for a one of a kind getaway with friends, family, or as a corporate retreat!
• More information, video and pictures available at thejocasseeclub.com

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Salem, SC, USA:
We have owned a home on Lake Jocassee for over 25 years. The lake is spectacular any time of the year. There are less than 40 houses on the lake, one boat access and more than 75 miles of shoreline. The Jocassee Sanctuary, Whitewater Lodge is now available for srental and also offered for sale to those who know the special magic surrounding Lake Jocassee. Lake Jocassee is known by some as the Lake Tahoe of the East. With its crystal clear waters surrounded by thousands of acres of State protected land. Nowhere else that has the same magic as Lake Jocassee!

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Whitewater Lodge of The Jocassee Club is one of those rare places that always seems to build a deeper connection between family, friends, and the natural world with each visit.
