About Alann Grigsby

Steve and I own the house and just love the area. We live close by and enjoy all that Oconee County has to offer. Steve grew up one street over, and I moved here from Texas. We also have the listing #729831 if you need more room or more beds.

Alann Grigsby purchased this house in 2009

Why Alann Grigsby chose Lake Keowee

I bought this house so that my parents and friends have a place to stay when they come to visit. It is just perfect for a short time renter.

What makes this house unique

The old pine floors have lots of character.

Cozy, clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This sweet little house provided all the space and comfort we needed during our three day stay. The large eat-in kitchen was a pleasant surprise and the cozy living room and bedrooms lent an inviting home-like feeling to the cottage. The owner(s) very thoughtfully provided all the appointments for their guests' needs. My only suggestions for improvement would be to provide better reading light in the living room and bedrooms and to provide easier access to the back deck with grill.

All in all, a very nice place. I would happily stay there again!

My husband and I stayed here when visiting my parents, who live nearby, and their tiny house filled up with other visiting family. The house was great. Plenty of space. Comfortable. Well-equipped kitchen. The back deck is so cute. Thanks for a great stay!

We really enjoy staying in this house in Walhalla. It has everything that you need, is always spotlessly clean, is in a great location to all the nearby activities and things to see, and is pet friendly. We have stayed here twice so far, and will stay here again in the future. Thanks for letting us use your adorable little house!

A place to sleep while going other places nearby.

  • 3 of 5

We met Alann early and had a nice conversation. She allowed us to check in a couple of hours early. The rental was older but clean and comfortable. We were unable to get the bedroom TV programmed and there were no extra blankets. Everything else was nice. We used the house as our own while there. We would rent here again if we have another need in the area.

Great value. Easy to find. Very well stocked. Excellent jumping-off point for many upstate SC activities- including fly-fishing. A lot of thought went into the many little details. We appreciate the fenced area for our dog!
