The rates quoted above are for either the main cabin and its bunk house or the Trout Stream House. If you party requires all three cabins then the cleaning fee would be $140, and the per night fee would be $380 (depending on the season).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2017

About the owner: My wife and I are the proud parents of the most precious gift from God, our son Nolan. We love to travel when our schedules allow. Sharon is a dental hygienist and I work as an engineer. We both grew up in Augusta, GA and love the outdoors!

Why the Owner Chose Rocky Bottom, SC, USA:
My life-long dream has always been to own a cabin in the mountains. I literally searched for years, and never could find a place that "checked all of the boxes"...until I found The Shamrock House. We fell in love with the charm and history of the property, and look forward to creating memories at this wonderful place. We are forever indebted to the previous owner, who renovated the buildings and grounds to bring the property back to its former glory, and now you have an opportunity to enjoy the results.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It is truly unique. The grounds cover 10 acres bordered by Rocky Bottom Creek and the Jocassee Gorges Heritage Preserve. There are extensive stone walls and walks laid down in the 1920's and many specimen sized trees. Many different wild flowers can be seen throughout out the growing season including rare Oconee Bells and Trillium's. The main cabin is of cedar logs with American Chestnut paneling and floors. The extra large porch of the main cabin has hand made tables, chairs and swings by local artisan Bob McCall. The Trout Stream House has great views of the Bear Meadow and Rocky Bottom Creek. Locals tell tales of Nancy the Ghost who makes herself known from time to time in the main cabin. Maybe yes maybe no. And, President Lyndon Johnson liked the place well enough to spend some time at The Shamrock House as well. The location is such that one can be on the Foothills Trail in less than five minutes and at Lake Keowee or Jocassee in 30 minutes and also Brevard or Pickens in about the same time.
