About Jeff Ziemer

My wife Julie and I have been married for 17 years and love to entertain family at the lake house. Lately, we have been so busy with our children's activities, that we haven't been able to get to the lake house very often. That is why we have decided to provide it as a vacation rental for others to enjoy.

Jeff Ziemer purchased this house in 2008

Why Jeff Ziemer chose Lake Keowee

We purchased this property to take advantage of beautiful lake Hartwell and to have a place to stay when attending Clemson University sporting events, especially Clemson football games!!! Our football routine is to boat over to the game, walk up and over a hill and you are at the famous Esso Club. From there, the football stadium is across the street where we tailgate in Lot 2 adjacent to the stadium. This is much easier than fighting traffic to and from the game and is just as convenient as many of the parking spots available. We have 2 children who love to wakeboard and swim.

My son and his friends often attend football camp in the spring while the parents and other children stay at the lake house. Of course every trip during warm weather involves fishing, swimming, tanning, tubing, skiing and wake boarding!

The house location is an easy drive from Greenville, SC (about an hour) and is on a deep quiet cove in an area that is very scenic and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

My father in law helps us manage the property. He is retired, very capable and is available to help answer questions or provide assistance if necessary.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated, clean, and had plenty of area for us to hang out and play games or watch TV. The location was great including where it was on the lake and how close it was to Clemson for grocery shopping, eating out, and activities. The dock had plenty of room for us to congregate with areas that were open to the sun or shaded. Jeff could not have been better to work with. Will definitely rent this house again.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house during my son's Clemson soccer camp. Very nice house overall. Great upstairs and downstairs. The beds had great mattresses, nice TVs, great kitchen appliances and very clean. The lake dock was great too. The location is very close to Clemson and took me about 15-20 minutes to get there. I would recommend this house to anyone. Also, Jeff was very accommodating. Thank you!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Close to Clemson campus and surrounding areas (Isaqueena Falls and Oconee State Park). Beautiful view of the lake. House was clean and we made great use of the tv/satellite.

Great house on Lake Hartwell

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful. The pics don't do it justice. I would definitely come back.

Jeff, the owner, was ready to help in any way he could. When I called him during my stay he answered immediately.

Jeff I forgot to tell you: the iron & ironing board were missing & the remote batteries were dead. And the cleaning service needs to clean outside. There were a lot of Cobb webs on the porch, stairs, bridge to dock, and dock itself.

Thank you for everything!

Owner's Response: Jackie, I'm glad you enjoyed the house. The iron and ironing board were not missing, we just never had them. Thanks to your suggestion we will be adding that to the house. Jeff

The PERFECT weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff, I can't thank you enough for a fantastic weekend at your beautiful home on Lake Hartwell. The house and property were pristine, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. It felt like "home" right when we walked through the door. The majority of our time was spent on the spacious dock, which had plenty of outdoor seating and served as our favorite hangout spot over the weekend. The grill was also wonderful to have access to, as we were able to grill out for dinner on Saturday night and relax on the deck. This house had everything we could have asked for, and it was an absolutely perfect weekend! I have already recommended it to a couple friends for their future lake stays. Thank you, again!
