About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This spectacular Lakefront Vacation Home is located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the mountains of South Carolina. We are in Tamassee - between Lake Jocassee and Keowee to the east, Walhalla and the Chattooga River just west, and Cashiers just to the north. Relaxing at a great lakefront retreat, enjoying Clemson Tiger football, and hiking, white-water rafting, and exploring, are all convenient and nearby.

This top shelf home is located on a beautiful, private, 160+-acre, boatable lake with a large private dock, swimming area, and a nice view of the South Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. The home has Direct TV and Good Wifi. With the internet, it is easy to find out where things while you are there. This is a great family vacation rental home for both the active group and the 'kickback and relax' family. The home is very fully equipped and is very upscale, yet casual.

We are on Lake Cherokee, a true hidden gem, but there is not much published on this lake. Email us for more information.

The master on the main level has Queen Bed, en suite, with garden jetted tub and walkin shower, plus double sinks. The upper level has 2 bedrooms each with queen bed, and share a bath that is accessible directly from one bedroom and accessed from the hallway by the other bedroom. There is an extra half bath on the main level for general use without going to the bedroom. On the lower level is a full bath with walking shower. There is a twin trundle and the trundle pops up and can be made with the other twin bed into a modified king bed, or used as 2 twin beds. There is a foldout queen sofa. The ground level is one large room, but because it is very private with a separate area near the full bath, we have listed the house as 4 bedrooms. This ground level also has the game room with ping pong table/pool table and seating area with TV, but nicely separated from the sleeping area, as this is a very large room.

Why The Owner chose Upcountry

This property is very centrally located to all the wonderful natural attractions of Oconee County, as well as the Chattooga River area, and a short drive to Cashiers, Highlands, Gorges State Park, and other wonderful local attractions. Lake Cherokee is one of many private lakes in Oconee County and it is the largest. We are a private lake and the lake is motorboated, but only owner motorboats are allowed, so it is always peaceful. We allow our guests use of our kayak and canoe. Great fishing. We also have a very nice swimming area off of our large boat dock with easy walkin steps to the water, great for children and grownups alike. Nice and shallow near the shoreline, water all-the-time, unlike the large reservoir lakes, and the water goes nicely deep just off the end of our dock.

Great house, beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here the week of Thanksgiving. The house is very clean, well-equipped, and the owner was very easy to work with. He works to make sure all is well with the house and for renters. I'd recommend this place if you just want to relax and enjoy the scenery/lake or if you'd like to go hiking or exploring waterfalls (great hiking nearby). There is plenty of room for a big family to be together, but also space to spread out. It's also an easy trip (less than an hour) to Clemson, Cashiers, or Highlands. Hope to return.

Perfect weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend in October and it was a beautiful weekend! We loved this home and it was perfect for my husband and I and our two children - ages 11 & 14. The house had plenty of space and the location is unbelievable. Beautiful lake home and had absolutely everything that we could ever need. We spent our time there fishing and relaxing on the double decker dock on the lake. It is so pretty over their lake. We loved that they had kayaks that we could use and we are already thinking that it would be fun to come back in the summer so we could swim and do more lake activities. We were also close to lots of waterfall hikes and the Nantahala Center - we did a whitewater rafting down the Chattooga River - we all loved this! Such a fun trip and the weekend went by flawlessly. We would absolutely love to come back to this house and the owners were a pleasure to work with.

A week at the lake

  • 5 of 5

A perfect property for those wishing to get away from their hectic, stressful life for a week. We found this home complete with everything we needed to simply relax, float on the lake, sit around the table telling embarrassing stories on each other, and decompress. The huge kitchen made it easy to prepare family meals (and memories), the house was large enough for everyone to have a quiet space to retreat to, and the owners was readily available to handle any problems that might arise. As my husband and three kids said, " Best Vacation EVER".

Relaxing Stay in a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great condition and clean. Everything on the property worked properly and the house is very large! As the property is located on a private lake, it was very quiet, which was exactly what we were looking for.

We were given very detailed instructions, so we knew what to expect as far as directions, checking in, checking out, etc.-- the process was seamless. Our security deposit was promptly returned, as promised.

The property is a very short drive (less than 15 mins) from beautiful hiking spots as well as Lake Jocassee, which is the most beautiful lake I've ever seen! We stayed at the property in December and it was wonderful; I'm sure that in the fall it is breathtaking! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I would definitely recommend this rental property to a friend!

(The one thing that was missing from the kitchen was a wine opener, but that was easily remedied at the nearby gas station. Make sure to bring one if you plan on using one! Otherwise, the kitchen and house in general had everything that we needed! We brought our own linens as recommended, but there were plenty of extras if we had forgotten something.)

Beautiful home surrounded by natural splendor - it doesn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our annual sisters (and their husbands) weekend, and everyone enjoyed themselves. We woke in the mornings to mist rising off the lake, spent afternoons fishing or relaxing on the sundeck or the screened porch, enjoyed beautiful sunsets on the sparkling water, and at night, the stars were SPECTACULAR. The house is great as well, with three levels of space for people to get away for alone time, and a wonderful open-design great room, kitchen and dining area for everyone to gather. We went up to Cashiers for an afternoon, and to Lake Jocassee - about 12 minutes away - another time, but mostly stayed "home" and enjoyed the changing leaves and gorgeous setting on Lake Cherokee. It was a great time, and we hope to go back!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The rooms were really comfortable and the best part of the house was the screened porch and the view of the lake. It was beautiful! We also enjoyed the kayaks provided on the lake. Overall and great and relaxing place to stay!
