Perfect Place for a Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

It's so peaceful in Mountain Rest. We took a long weekend break here with my son's family and the cabin was perfect. We took advantage of the deck for grilling and toasting marshmallows, walked to the lake for fishing and canoeing, admired the beautiful fall colors, hiked in nearby Sumter National Forest, and even dropped by Clemson for a playoff soccer game. My 10-year-old grandson has already decreed that we will come back to this same cabin every year!

Second time my wife and I have stayed here and it won't be the last. Absolutely a gem. So peaceful and quiet.

The cabin is very comfortable and well equipped. The lake is a great place to kayak or canoe. John and Colleen

are very helpful and great to work with. We would highly recommend staying at this cabin.

Beautiful, relaxing clean and comfortable. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Upon our late arrival (Husband & wife) we were pleasantly surprised by this gorgeous cabin in the woods. Entering into the living area with a open yet cozy floor plan which is decorated with great care, makes one feel very comfortable. We chose to stay in the lower master bedroom. The bed was so wonderful with quality linens and pillows, we slept so good!

The bathrooms were super clean and did have toiletries available if needed. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to create any kind of meal desired, it also had some basic stuff available just in case, and laundry available downstairs.

We were told that there were poles for fishing left behind by the last person(s) but we never found any? So we purchased a pole and some bait up the road a ways. So glad we did!

We canoed around the lake and fished a little, enough to have a bluegill dinner for two. It tasted fantastic only wish we could have stayed longer.

Had our coffee on the screened porch and listened to the quiet in the morning.

All in all this was by far the nicest place we ever stayed for a weekend getaway. I would recommend if you stay, to stay as long as you can!

God Bless,

Perfect is the only word to describe this rental home. Amenities and decor are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We didn't want to leave. The lake is absolutely gorgeous and a great place for novice kayakers to start. Talked to a couple of other homeowners on the lake and felt very welcomed and at home. We loved the screened in front porch!

We will definitely return to this little piece of heaven on earth!!!

Excellent Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best cabin we have ever stayed in. It had everything you needed (just in case you forgot something). It was beyond clean and so comfortable. I was absolutely blown away by the serenity, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. We kayaked on the beautiful lake and went tubing down the Chattooga...now that was an experience!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. We will Definitely be back. Thank you so much John and Colleen for answering all of my questions before we arrived. You have an amazing home!!
