About John P Thompson

We are from Alexandria, VA but Kelly grew up in Waynesville, NC and attended UGA. Our daughter attended Clemson University which is how we found this wonderful lake and this home. Sue grew up in Massachusetts but her family had a lake house in New Hampshire for 30 years. We wanted to have a lake home for our families to share.

John P Thompson purchased this house in 2013

Why John P Thompson chose Lake Keowee

We fell in love with Lake Keowee first. Then we found this great home. We really love the views of the water and the quiet cove that this house sits on. It is a great place to swim, fish and enjoy all kinds of water sports. It is also close to Seneca which is a very sweet town and of course Clemson University.

What makes this house unique

We just love the big porch that faces the lake. The screened in porch is a great place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee or read a book in the afternoon. The rocking chairs on the porch are just hypnotic and peaceful. The house is filled with wood and stone and the kitchen is a great place to hang out with your friends and family.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week stay at this lovely home. Kitchen was so very well equipped and we had plenty of room at the dining room table for family dinners. We spent hours floating off the dock and watching the spectacular sunset from the water. The dock left us plenty of space for our pontoon boat and the jet ski. The bedrooms were clean and restful and our college-aged kids appreciated the lower level privacy. The house suited our family perfectly. We will certainly return for another summer vacation!

Our most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect. Well equipped, beautiful, comfortable. We used the 4 kayaks almost daily on this wonderful lake. The children spent hours on the dock, jumping in, swimming and playing on floats. The view is amazing. Enjoyed watching the 4th fireworks from the dock also. We all agreed this was an extremely fun and relaxing vacation, even though we also found time to explore and find some beautiful waterfalls. We definitely will plan on coming back. Thanks John for everything.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, clean house located on a great part of the lake. Very convenient for runs into Seneca. Our family had a wonderful vacation there and plan to return. We spent our days playing on the lake, using the owners' kayaks and floating in their tubes. The property is well maintained and has a friendly property manager. I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, as I cooked a lot for my family! Lots of room for a large group. I would definitely recommend this property.

Your house is beautiful we had so much fun. We rented a boat and spent most of our time on the lake. The waterfalls were absolutely great. The house looked just like the pictures on the internet. The house was so clean. I would recommend to anyone.
