About Ann Decherd Shehan, Mike Decherd
803.517.7437, A South Carolina family who discovered this Lake in 2010 and have enjoyed this lake for years. We love the outdoors including water sports. We have only owned the home for a short time but like to share the wonderful lake house when working out of town or on assignment. Family moved to South Carolina mountains because of the beauty and for the distinct four seasons, and of course, the southern hospitality and way of life.
Why Ann Decherd Shehan, Mike Decherd chose Seneca
Property had the greatest amount of positives, such as large natural wooded but sunny lot, glass walls on all levels for lake viewing, real deep water at dock to accommodate a sailboat, location, gentle slope to lake in rear without strings of steps, and quality of construction. The location in the State of SC is the ultimate BEST. It is GOOD for the SOUL. Best Lakefront home on the Lake. In 2016 and 2017 amenities have been added. See website for info.
What makes this House unique
Deep Water at Dock COVERED DOCK SLIP and outside slip along dock. In addition we have a mooring hook for an additional boat dock. -Located at large mouth of cove opening right into the big water.** -50 feet of water in the wide large cove., You can "'noodle", swim or paddle to the sandbar. Large 50-80 year old hardwood trees are trimmed upward , and there is a concrete drive and continuing concrete path to dock connected, Very high quality windows with full glass of European style. There is a screened-in porch on the middle level of home.. There is a VERY gentle slope to Boat Dock, with four completely flat areas at and near water, which is easy for any age group to traverse. We have a very long white sand beach at water's edge and a graveled fire pit at water's edge on other side of sidewalk. There are NO STRINGERS of STEPS to DOCK! The Shoreline is ALMOST 200 feet wide. In Year 2017, a NEW LARGE Fire Pit was added near the dock with many chairs to lounge in & tables to sit things on while you sit around the fire and tell family stories and roast marshmallows . Flat level areas in front, waterside area. NEW WHITE SAND BEACH TO ENJOY ALONG THE WATER'S EDGE. ON OTHER SIDE OF WALKWAY AT WATER'S EDGE IS A FIRE PIT AREA ON A GRAVEL BASE.

Great location for our Thanksgiving family gathering of 12. All the adult, teen and kids toys anyone could want with plenty of room - indoors and out - for different age groups to spread out. Ann was only a phone call away for problems or questions. Had none of the corner and one of the latter.
We really enjoyed interacting with this family in assisting them to really enjoy a reunion during the holiday time of November. We we're away, out of town at that time so it worked out perfect for both families. Very nice guests. Thank you so much for the nice review.
Relaxing, well-appointed new lake front home.
We loved our week at this new, well designed home. Our large group had plenty of space for sleeping, bathrooms, privacy and partying. We enjoyed the various indoor and outdoor gathering spots. Lots of shade, then sun on the sand beach and dock. The kitchen was well-appointed. So many water toys, plus easy access to ski boat rentals!
A lovely group of adults just wanting some rest and relaxation. They did not hesitate to call me if they couldn't find something. I have a Location Book in the house but it is just for major items. They were a joy to work with and I an so glad the dates worked out. Come back soon!
Wonderful week at the lake!
5 star property. Family loved staying in this beautiful home. Kids loved playing in the lake and having the basement to themselves to watch movies and hangout.House was meticulously clean and well stocked. Enjoyed day trips hiking the Blue Ridge mtn trails.
I enjoyed so much working with this nice family. Glad the kids really enjoyed all the inside and outside games. The Blue Ridge is close to enjoy and glad you appreciated the closeness to amenities, while being and feeling in the woods right on the lake. The white sand beach has been a hit with everyone who has been guests, including our family. The kayaks and canoes are a big hit, as well. Also everyone loves the covered dock with deep water for swimming .
Thank you for your honest review. Hope to see you in the future.
Great home! Good location on the lake!
We rented this home for our annual friends and family lake weekend and we were glad we did. The home is beautiful and well taken care of. It had plenty of space inside but the outdoor space is the highlight of the home. Lots of outdoor areas to hang out and relax. The dock is large and perfect for what we needed. Also the location on the lake is ideal, situated in a nice cove with easy access to the main body of water. We did lots of water sports so the location was perfect for us. Overall would definitely recommend to anyone and dealing with Ann was a pleasure. Book this home, you won’t regret it!
Thank you so much for your glowing review. It means a lot to us to have others enjoy our home as we do. As you know we have been working hard this last year to put in mini additional areas in the lake front yard for games and just providing areas for conversation and enjoyment of Our Guests. We love to rent our home to special guests when we are not there, working away from home. It was a pleasure dealing with you as well and hope to see you in the near future. We just purchased a double man kayak, longer than our other kayaks. Maybe you could try that out and see how you like it next time. Thank you again for taking such good care of our lake home
Clean and comfortable. Anything and everything a family could possibly need during your stay.
We had a great time and felt very comfortable during our stay. The kids had a blast with all the games, canoes and kayaks. Great location on the lake in the middle of the Tiki Hut and Light House Restaurant's. Easy boat launching from South Cove and room to store a trailer at the house. Mrs. Ann was very very helpful and welcoming. No need to ever look for another lake house at lake Keowee. We will be back soon.
So happy that you enjoyed your vacation. Yes, there are plenty of things to keep the children occupied and happy, and for all age spans. You were great to deal with and everything went smoothly. Thank you for being so prompt in getting back to me with answers and we certainly hope to see you again in the future when our home is available to others when we are not there. Making memories is what it is all about. You are so lucky that you know the Lake so well. I am still learning. Thanks again for your comments and for what you said to me on the phone.
Great property! Everything down to the minor details were accounted for. The views, the necessities, the space, the extras, were more than we could have asked for. All the kitchen tools to cook for a crowd or just the essentials for a romantic dinner for two were there. The house was cleaned to perfection and would exceed even those of the highest standards. I would highly recommend this location to anyone wanting to have a family get together; it has plenty of room for kids and the adults. The dock has a sunny side and shady side, so you can easily accommodate everyone's taste for the sun. We had one of the most enjoyable and relaxing trip we have had in years. So do not hesitate to book a stay, you will not have any regrets or definitely will no disappointed.
Thank you so much for such a glowing review. That makes us feel so happy. We have put so much work this past year and on into 2017 to provide upgrades for our guests that enjoy our home when we are out of town working and traveling. Wow, I really don't know what to say, but thank you and we are go tickled that you and your family had such a great vacation. Thank you for taking care of our canoes, kayaks and all paddles when the winds came up. It is obvious that you have had a place on the lake yourself. Thanks again.
