About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Lakefront Cabin

Are you looking for the perfect lake house get away? If so, then this is the house for you! This wonderful property has the charm of a rustic lodge, full of upgrades and modern amenities, offering you all of the comforts of home. Park your boat in our covered boat dock or your Jet Skis in our 2 Jet Ski bays, all just steps down a gently sloping walk from the house.

As you enter the main floor through the screened porch, you are greeted with a spacious great room with a towering cathedral ceiling, and a wall of windows overlooking beautiful views of the lake. The great room features a double sided stone fireplace that also opens to the screened porch, an HD Plasma TV, and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining area seats up to 10, and a fully equipped kitchen features brown pearl granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The main level also has 2 bedrooms and one full bathroom.

The upper level houses the master suite and a loft with 2 chairs that convert to twin beds. The master suite contains a king bed, a walk in closet and a modern bathroom with double granite sinks, jetted tub and a large walk in shower featuring spa jets, hand held shower head and 2nd fixed shower head. The master bedroom offers zoned air conditioning to ensure your utmost comfort during the hot summer months.

The lower level has another large common area with beautiful views of the lake, a flat screen TV, comfortable seating and game table. There is a pull out couch in the great room to offer additional sleeping space. A fourth bedroom is located on the lower level as well as a third full bathroom. A large laundry room is also available for your use.

Outdoor spaces include a screened porch and 2 covered decks all of which face the lake and are shaded from the afternoon sun. If you want sun, go to the boat dock, float in the lake, or sit on the lakeside stone patio which also serves as a fire pit.

Our house is located in the southwest part of Lake Keowee on a deep water cove in a no wake zone, providing a quiet setting for relaxing next to the water. Gas for your boat is just around the bend in the lake. We are conveniently just minutes from Seneca, grocery stores, shopping and restaurants.

Lake Keowee is about 18,500 acres of beautiful clean, clear water. At about 26 miles long and max 3 miles wide, it has more than 300 miles of shoreline with many islands and quiet coves for you to explore. Unlike other lakes in our area, Lake Keowee's water levels are maintained year round. If you don't have a boat you can rent one from Lake Keowee Marine in Seneca. (Make your reservations ahead of time).

The area is surrounded by 1,000's of acres of protected land, with six state parks and the Appalachian Mountains within sight, providing many hiking trails and outdoor activities. Clemson University is minutes away, offering sporting and cultural events for you to enjoy.

About Dave and Susan Smith

The owners, Dave and Susan Smith welcome you Serenity Bay! We purchased our Lake house in June of 2013, and are happy to share it with you. We live in Cincinnati, Ohio where Dave is a system's analyst and Susan is a fourth grade teacher. We enjoy most outdoor activities and love spending time with our friends and family at the lake. .

Dave and Susan Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Dave and Susan Smith chose Serenity Bay

We fell in love with our house because of its warm, rustic, mountain feel, yet with modern amenities that make it comfortable. Our favorite part of the house is the covered porch overlooking the beautiful views of the lake. We also love our covered dock and how it is only a few easy steps to the house.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with Lake Keowee because of its beauty and the activities that the nearby area offers. We chose our house because of it's quintessential lake house feel, with many modern comforts and upgraded finishes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. It was the perfect choice for us. The house is very well equipped for a rental home....I have never rented a vacation home with such a wonderfully stocked kitchen! I am a little of a clean fanatic as well and your home was spotless! Not having to bring our own kayaks was a very nice perk as well. All in all it provided for a wonderful quick getaway long weekend for us. The weather was great also and it is cooler (and mosquito free) than it is for us in Charleston so that was a nice break. Thank you. Our daughter goes to Clemson so if we are ever in need of a rental home for visits/ football games we will definately choose your home again.

Beautiful spacious getaway

  • 5 of 5

My entire family gathered from four states at this lovely place for Christmas 2017. Nine of us. Even without using the large porches and their comfortable furniture (it was cold!) we still had plenty of room inside. There was enough room for all 9 of us to have Christmas dinner at the large table in the great room. I can only imagine how wonderful this place would be in the summer, with porch time, boating, and swimming. Some family members enjoyed nearby hiking in one of the state parks close by. The owners are super responsive and very hospitable.

This one is highly recommended! Enjoy!

Wonderful, serene property and location.

Everything was perfect. However, a few extra towels would have been appreciated.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry about the towel situation. We keep several extra towels in the hallway cabinet and underneath the sink in the downstairs bathroom. I'm wondering if you saw those? We have about 20 towels available for each rental.

Super Awesome Lakefront House

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we wanted... on the lake, dock for fishing (we aren't boat people, but there was a slip for a rental boat), roomy, super clean, one large area for kitchen/dining/living rooms so all 8 of us could be together, quiet at night, games, kayaks, fairly new, you name it... this house had it. Highly recommended, no issues at all. Very friendly owners.
