Great place for a family to be together!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home - and it is a home! It was very comfortable and clean. Great amenities, too. Nice places to gather together, but also places where family members could spend some time on their own. We have rented many homes for various holidays, and we found this house to be among the best! We hope to come back.

Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home.... not a "rental property". We felt very at home the entire weekend. Great amount of space to spread out for everyone to enjoy themselves. Fire pit was perfect for late night Smore's. The guys enjoyed fishing off the dock also. Beautiful landscape and very modern and updated interior.

Only suggestion .... bring towels. We had a larger crowd so we brought some. Glad we did. Hope to return soon.

"THE ESCAPE" has the WOW FACTOR! When you pull up to the front door, you are met by a beautiful home however so humble. Once the door opens, your jaw drops because your eyes don't know where to focus. The views through the glass doors are hard to take your eyes off...the kitchen is well appointed; the dining room and breakfast area can accommodate the largest of families. We were 14 on graduation day...all sitting around the dining room table sharing one of many family meals.

Each of the bedrooms are great sized and decorated tastefully. I must point out the Master Bedroom Suite , including its own private deck is as good as any spa you have been to.

Downstairs is complete surprise...Another Master Bedroom that accomodate a family of 4-5 people with great closets and bathrooms.. There is a billiard room & outdoor game room as well...ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!

The back of the property is incredibly picturesque which includes covered swing; koi pond and water falls..fir pit, lounge chairs , dock and Lake Keowee!!!

The outside of the house which includes 5 decks and there are at least 10 different seating areas one - four people could get lost for a little quiet time!!

The owner is a gentleman and very welcoming. The home seems to be a natural extension of its owner...definitely will return...may be for a CLEMSON FOOTBALL GAME.

We had an absolutely fabulous time at this beautiful house. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with gorgeous views of the lake, mountain and koi pond. We had plenty to do with the game tables downstairs. It couldn't have been better. We would recommend this home to anyone looking to have fun and relax! We are very thankful to the Thompson's.

Amazing home with wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend, my family got together to celebrate our youngest son's 18th birthday. We are from Greensboro, NC, and we had grandparents and other family members join us from Atlanta as well as Asheville. Even though the weather was not warm to enjoy the lake, we did not care. The house was so beautiful and had the most amazing views of the lake from every part of the house that we felt like we enjoyed the lake as much as one could in February. Also, the house was filled with things to do, and we all enjoyed playing pool, ping pong, Foosball, air hockey and the dart board. We all felt like children. Even though we had a couple of minor hiccups, the home owner was quick to respond so it was not an issue for us.

We definitely want to come back to this lovely home when we can take advantage of the lake and the decks!!! I must say, this house is one of the best homes we have ever rented, and we tend to rent vacation homes at least twice a year for the last 22 years that my husband and I had been married.
