Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: This home was originally owned by Mark's parents for almost 20 years, and was sold when they decided to retire "in town". The home was then owned and enjoyed by the Hinkle family. As their kids grew older, they decided to sell the cabin back into the Wallace family. Mark and Monique Wallace purchased the home in March, 2015. The Wallace's are a Clemson Tiger family, and Monique's family (minus Monique and her two daughters) remain in California- to support the Medby family UCLA heritage and Monique's alma mater. Mark and Monique met in Indiana and lived briefly in the Chicago suburbs. Now back in Indiana, and freezing most of the time, they decided to put down roots by buying the family cabin so the Southern boy and the California girl could make lots of new memories together with their children and grandchildren.

Why Mountain Rest, SC, USA:
There are a lot of fabulous memories in the home, and the vibe here is warm, welcoming and nourishing. Many celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and we recently had a bride prepare for her marriage in our home. We also have hosted several international travelers. The lake house is a peaceful and comfortable place for your retreat. It is a place to create your own memories. We recognize this and would be honored to be your special home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We not only love this home because it is rich in Wallace family memories, (there may be a few carved out names on a small desk in the corner...) but because it is just the "right amount of far enough away". Every amenity you can think of surrounds the area, but at night the stars are bright and chirps and clicks and fire crackles and the faint sound of moving water and wind all around you is all you can hear. One of Mark's favorite thing to do is to go out to the middle of the lake at night and look at the brilliance of the Milky Way. Be sure to enjoy this lasting memory for yourself!
