About the property

2 Bedrooms, (1 on the Sun Porch, 1.5 Baths Inside, Outdoor Shower)

The Sunset Cottage on Lake Greenwood sits on a level lot with about 100 feet of lakefront. The lake, which is formed by the Reedy and Saluda rivers is 19 miles long with over 200 miles of shoreline.

The cottage offers the perfect location for swimming, boating, fishing, sunbathing, or kayaking from the cottage’s private dock. If relaxing is your goal, enjoy the incredible sunset view from the rocking chairs, porch swing or hot tub on the deck of cottage. You can even enjoy the same view from the swing bed on the sun porch!

If golfing is your thing, you have several choices nearby. Sunset Cottage is also an excellent location for lodging during Masters week. The Masters course in Augusta is only about an hour away. Instead of returning to a hotel room after a long day on the golf course, return home to a comfy retreat at the lake.

If you are interested in the performing arts, the cottage is a short drive to the renowned Newberry Opera House and the Abbeville Opera House, both offering a variety of entertainment year round.

Newberry College, Presbyterian College and Lander University are all in close driving distance to the cottage. So whether you are in town for an athletic event or dropping kids off for school, the cottage is a great location.

The Sunset Cottage is arranged for the flexibility of being a private romantic getaway or a family vacation home. The cottage offers 1 private bedroom at the back of the house with an attached half bath. The second bedroom is on the sun porch with a queen sized swing bed where you can wake to a beautiful view of the lake in the morning sun. Two comfy cots are also available for guests. There is a full bath off of the family room and a half-bath off of the private bedroom. Most guests enjoy the enclosed outdoor shower when weather allows.

Active families can dive into the water sports they love without leaving the property. There are also quiet spots where guests enjoy sitting and reading or watching the beautiful bird and butterfly population. There are several nearby towns worth exploring - Laurens, Newberry, Greenwood and Aiken. The cottage is located in the small town of Cross Hill. Fat Boy's Barbecue and the Country Café and Bakery are put you only minutes away from good food.

Everything we expected ... and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

We hoped we would enjoy our stay but, instead, we are now obsessed with this property!

From the moment you walk through the "back" door you are drawn to the lake view and out to the deck and dock. The deck is fantastic, offering shade or sun at any time during the day. You simply pick the chair that offers exactly the shade you want! I spent most of the day on the deck working (great wifi) or reading or simply enjoying the view.

Great neighbors with meticulous yards enhance the view up or down the lake. There just is no bad view!

Morning coffee and sunsets on the dock became a tradition. And getting in and out of the water is a breeze!

Our boys loved sleeping on the sun porch and we found the design and attention to detail in the home exceptional. We were concerned about the sq ftg but it was NEVER an issue, even with two teen boys who like their privacy at times!

The extra half-bath in the master bedroom is brilliant and the outside private shower with hot/cold water meant there was never a wait for the shower.

Lisa was amazingly helpful and accommodating.

We will be back!

The Sunset Cottage exceeds what the pictures show. Very quant little cottage, we had everything we needed and very clean. We brought our kayak's and were on the water early in the morning for hours and then after a relaxing nap on the swinging patio bed out we went kayaking and fishing till the amazing sunset view on the water.

We will be back next year for sure! Thank you Lisa for your hospitality!

Peaceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cozy little cottage on Lake Greenwood from Aug 7 - Aug 13. We were celebrating his 50th birthday, as well as our 6th wedding anniversary. We actually own a piece of property on Lake Greenwood (in Cross Hill), but it may be several more years before we are able to build. So, we thought it would be nice to experience the 'lake life' for a week. The weather was not ideal, overcast most days - however, the view was outstanding. We spent every single morning sitting out on the deck, in the swing while enjoying a cup of coffee/tea - and the sunsets are stunning in the evening. The grounds are nicely landscaped, and the neighbors (Al & Nancy) were full of hospitality. We rented a pontoon twice from Twin Rivers Landing (24 minute drive), and had dinner at The Mill House (35-42 minute drive) where we enjoyed brick oven roasted pizza. It was excellent! We'd love to come back, and maybe next time the weather will be more accommodating. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!

More than expected.

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage is an amazing place. The house was very well maintained along with the yard and dock. The owner and the neighbors are great people. We stayed the week where the temperatures was in the upper 90's and all the big shade trees made it more comfortable. My family will be going back and I would recommend this house to anyone. Thank you Lisa for everything.
