About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12 to 15

A retreat for the family. 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, offering you all of the comforts of home. Park your boat in our new covered boat dock or your Jet Skis, all just steps away down the sloping walk from the house. The yard kept as a nature setting, with lots of trees and a beautiful view of the lake.

As you enter the main floor through the front door, you are greeted with a spacious great room with a cathedral ceiling, and a wall of windows overlooking beautiful views of the lake. The great room features a stone fireplace that also opens to the sun deck, TV, and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining area seats up to 8, and a breakfast nook with seating for 4, with the fully equipped kitchen between. The main level also has 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms, including the master suite.

The lower level has two bedrooms plus a bunk bedroom, sitting area perfect for the kids to cuddle up and play games. Which opens up to the lower lever covered deck that includes an outdoor hot shower. The master bedroom suite offers your own private bath with tub/shower, large bedroom with sliding door to the deck. Laundry room is also available for your use, located on the lower level. As well as the double car garage.

Outdoor spaces include 2 decks both that face the lake, grilling area, patio set for enjoying the view and a glass of wine. If you want sun, go to the boat dock, float in the lake, enjoy a refreshing swim. The water is a very pretty blue/green and about 30 feet deep at the dock. You are more then welcome to park your boat during your stay. The Keowee Marina is only about a mile away from our dock. Our house is located in the southern most point of Lake Keowee on a deep water cove. The cove is large enough to water ski in, but also a quiet setting for relaxing next to the water. 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.

Awesome lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of five families with an age range of 4 to 52 years old. We were a large group and used every square inch of the house and were very comfortable. The house was gorgeous and had just about everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom towels were soft, and we loved having access to a washer and dryer for the week! We were secluded enough to be away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough for daily trips to the grocery store. We took advantage of the fire pit, the horseshoe pit, the dock, the garage - and nothing disappointed! We brought our boats and launched them at the nearby marina. The people at the marina were fairly knowledgeable of the area and always very helpful. We all swam and floated off of the dock, and caught several fish there as well. Lake Keowee is absolutely beautiful. The water is very clean. We were able to visit a waterfall and jump off of the Lake Keowee jumping rock. We spent several hours skiing, kneeboarding, and tubing. The backyard is very steep - much more than you can tell in the photos, so be prepared for that.

Some tips: There is a map of the lake in the side table in the living room. We didn't find it until our last day there and wished we would have found it on day one! Also, there is an ice station between the house and the marina on 123. It is much cheaper to buy the ice in bulk there than to buy bags elsewhere. We took several coolers down to the dock and in the boat each day so we went through a ton of ice. Thank you David for sharing your beautiful home with us! We are talking about making this an annual vacation!

This place needs a lot of work that needs to be done

  • 1 of 5

Pictures are totally different of what you find in the house.There is mold on the living area seiling ( even that was on the review from August owner pretended that he never new about it). He told me that I can leave the house after we drive 3 hours to get there and was late at night. Unacceptable!

Chairs covers are all ripped and the fabric couch is so discussing . The kitchen equipment is from 70’s and needs to br updated. There were only bottom sheets on bunk beds and we couldn’t use it for the kids and there were no spare sheets you can use.

If I didn’t drove that long to get there I would leave that day.

The only good think is the view and the fire pit outside.

Off-Season Experience

  • 4 of 5

We spent Christmas week in the house, so enjoyed the lake as a view rather than for recreation. The house is spacious, beds are comfortable, and the kitchen drawers are packed with utensils. It's close to grocery stores and has a beautiful view. Fire pit is as advertised. The owner prides himself on his response time. If these things matter to you--it is also a well-worn home. Stains on the carpets and ceiling, scarred furniture, empty picture hooks on the walls, temperature indicators worn off the stove top, missing knob on the washing machine, etc. The driveway has a ridiculous slope, but no more so than others in the neighborhood. Can't beat the location for getting to stores, to Clemson, and also onto the Lake within minutes.

It worked for us!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group with 7 adults and 9 children. The house worked out very well for us even though we had a few kids on the floor in sleeping bags. The setting was absolutely gorgeous. The trees around the cove were changing colors and it could not have been prettier. The outside of the house was perfect for the kids. They played outside most of the time and used the dock to fish (did not catch much). The decks and dock were in very good condition and we used them a lot. The fire pit was great to have and we used it most every night. What would we change about David's house? The kitchen appliances were out dated and need to be upgraded. Plus, we would have liked a bigger kitchen, but it worked out even with 5 people working on Thanksgiving dinner. We would stay there again.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a family reunion. Easy to get to until the driveway and that is steep, but we’ll worth it. Plenty of bedrooms for all, and garage was handy for kids playing while it rained.

Outside area is great. Inside not so much. Carpet stains, ceiling stains - it was disappointing.

  • 3 of 5

The property is for sale and realtors started showing up at 9:15 am to show the property! No warning by the owner. With some updating this would be a great property to stay at but I would not stay here again unless it was updated. Especially the carpet stains and what looked like mold on the ceiling in the living room. The outdoor fire pit and view was amazing and where we spent our time. It is very conveniently located in Seneca. The driveway was steep but workable.
