About John Lockhead

My parents bought the house for us kids and our kids (their grand kids) to have a nice roomy and fun place to spend some quality time together. We have enjoyed great memories on the water and at the house with friends and family.

John Lockhead purchased this house in 1999

Why John Lockhead chose Semora

Our house is in a quiet cove on the main South HYCO lake. Deep water. Private and roomy for a quiet vacation.

We just completed adding a beautiful deck and downstairs bedroom suite. the deck and porch underneath offer large comfortable places to grill our and relax overlooking the lake. Shaded during the day with a constant breeze.

What makes this house unique

My most favorite place in the world is lakeside next to the boathouse on an adirondack chair under the sweetgum tree (beware the gum balls). There is a great shallow area with pea gravel for the kids to play safely in the lake with little to no boat traffic or waves. Great view and breeze. Turn on the outdoor

stereo and relax!

Great place for group events or family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We love the new deck and covered patio space! Both are great places to hang out with super views of the lake. The home is warm and inviting with plenty of space for everyone (grown up or kids) to spend quality family fun time together.

Lovely home, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This home is lovely and wonderfully located. You can swim and kayak from the boathouse dock, and there is a fantastic, large, raised fire pit. It's only minutes from places to rent boats and/or kayaks. The house has been recently upgraded, so there are plenty of beds and a new washer/dryer. My family has been twice, and we're looking forward to going again!

Good quiet place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Nice home on a quiet part of the lake. We used the property for just a general place to sleep. It has a good bathroom to bedroom ratio and was pleasant. Will stay there again.
