About Brian Forrester

Brian and Heather Forrester and their children, Andrew, Devin, and Aiden, welcome you to our Serenity Bay home! We purchased our Lake house just this year and are excited to share it with you. Brian is a Information Technology Director for a municipality in Greer, South Carolina and Heather college professor for Greenville Technical College. Andrew works for BMW in Greer, Devin is a 5th grader, and Aiden is only 2 years old. When we are not working or taking care of a toddler, we enjoy spending time with our families on the lake.

Brian Forrester purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Forrester chose Seneca

We have always enjoyed boating and staying on Lake Keowee. It has been our life long dream to own a lake house. Recently, we were presented with an opportunity to purchase this home and have a permanent place to enjoy our favorite past time.

What makes this house unique

We immediately feel in love with this home because of its many unique qualities. The home is located in a beautiful and well maintained community. It has a great view of the lake from within the home and on the wrap around porch. It has a paved driveway and parking for three cars. The master bathroom is also unique because of the huge shower and walk-in closet.

Very disappointed in the location, 2 house rows back from lake. Very minimal lake view

  • 1 of 5

Barely a view of the lake. The AC thermastat would only adjust temp for a short while, then would go to an internal programmed temp that was not adjustable. We had to constantly get up every 2 hours to adjust temp. The house itself was a nice home, but very disappointed in the location.

Beautiful and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Just as described and illustrated in the pictures, this is a well maintained home on the northwest side of the lake. Brian was very professional and accommodating. He quickly responded to my inquiry and within 48 hours I had received all the instructions necessary to find and access the home. Thankfully his instructions were spot-on as we arrived at 1am after a 13-hour drive and it is quite dark in that area. (Great star-gazing!)

Everything functioned well in the home except for the fireplace. Beds were quite comfortable, master bath is huge, and kitchen is well appointed. Coffee maker is a Keurig for all you caffeine addicts so bring your K-cups. Wireless, Direct-TV, and washer/dryer worked just fine. The house was perfectly comfortable with the thermostat set at 72. (Outside temps dropped to freezing during our stay.)

It is a 3-minute walk down the hill to the water's edge and a 15-minute drive into downtown Seneca. Jogging was a challenge due to the hills adjacent to the subdivision and the narrow roads in the surrounding country side. There is a 1.2 mile loop around the Seneca Recreation Complex that satisfied my daughter's cross-country training needs. We found some great hiking trails within a 20 minute drive which were listed on sctrails.net. I highly recommend the Ram Cat Social House in Seneca for a warm & friendly dining experience.

Many thanks Brian for your hospitality and providing a stress free get away for our family of 6 and the dog. We became Clemson fans as we watched them beat OSU and look forward to returning during the summer as we can only imagine how much fun the lake will be when it's warm.

Beautiful and Homey

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this to be such a

fantastic home filled with amenities. Our exotic

birds were allowed which is always appreciated.

Our Clemson U. niece and nephew came back

and forth for the home cooked meals so the

deck, screened porch and hanging out in the

large living space was important. We enjoyed

kayaking together on the lake, and hiking nearby

to the many waterfalls.The weather was perfect .

The owners are kind and want guests to fully

enjoy their beautiful home.

Clean, New and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home for a long weekend visiting daughter at Clemson and taking in a football game! This home is new, comes with linens and paper products and beds were quite comfortable. We highly recommend this home! Our only drawback is that you cannot see the lake from inside the home and it is a peek from the porch with leaves on the trees. There is an assigned boat slip which is awesome but the launch is too steep to put in a trailered boat. Other than that, this is a terrific rental with attention to detail and comfort!!!! Many thanks!
