We are located about two miles from the town of Saluda, and about two miles from the Greenville County Water shed entrance. Lake Hosea Drive is off Mountain Page Road, which becomes Greenville Street closer to town. This location is within a 20 minute drive to Hendersonville, Tryon, NC and Landrum, SC. The area is known for its outdoor activitity opportunities including tubing, kayaking, zip lining, mountain hiking and biking. Many festivals are held here each year including Saluda's Art Festival in the spring, Coon Dog day which is the first Saturday after July 4. The Apple Festival is held in Hendersonville in September. And other festivals are held in Tryon and nearby towns.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We live in Greenville, SC and in 2009 had this cabin custom built. We have put a lot of time and energy into the property, and also own the adjoining lot in the back for privacy. The house is on a corner lot and there is a privacy fence on the side adjoining the only other adjacent home. Very private and quiet location. We love the proximity to the town of Saluda with the wonderful restaurants, friendly shop keepers, festivals, and community spirit. Lake Hosea is a small, quiet lake community about 2.5 miles outside town. Although we are both very much in the "retirement age", my husband continues to stay in business and I enjoy several hobbies including furniture painting, bridge, gardening, and reading. The cabin is very much our "home away from home" and we welcome guests who respect the property, our neighbors, and our personal property.

Why the Owner Chose Saluda, NC, USA:
In addition to proximity to Saluda and amenities of the lake, we like to visit the surrounding communities of Columbus, Tryon, Hendersonville, and Asheville. Many mountain attractions and conveniences are within a short distance. We love being close to good hiking trails, the Green River, The Gorge Zip Line, and ice cream at Somewhere in Time in downtown Saluda. Saluda has recently been named among the five leading small towns to visit in the Carolinas. Developed as a summer retreat for SC residents from the heat of the lower part of the state, the residential population more than doubles in the summer. Visitors come here from every US state, Canada, and many foreign countries. We are also conveniently located to Greenville, SC, recently recognized as one of the 10 best cities in the US to visit. If you have time while in the Saluda area, hopefully you will drive to downtown Greenville and enjoy the center city water falls, "swinging" bridge, fabulous restaurants, theater, music, and specialty stores and shops.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We chose Lake Hosea due to its laid back atmosphere, very natural landscaping, and the lake. We love walking around the lake, enjoying the birds, wild flowers, and natural scenery of this neighborhood. Quiet, private, but easily accessible to town and conveniences. In deciding to rent the cabin, we are providing a comfortable cabin that is fully equipped for most - all paper products, full line of linens/towels, fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances and cookware. Designed to offer a get-away where you only need to bring your clothes, meds, and some food; and if you don't want to bring food, several very good restaurants are nearby. We have taken the time and energy to decorate and maintain a comfortable, clean, and attractive home, and appreciate our guests who respect the home and treat it as we do - relax and enjoy.
