******** NEWS FLASH **********

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC names JOCASSEE GORGES #9 in '50 of the WORLD'S LAST GREAT PLACES', Destinations of a Lifetime November 2012 issue.

The water level will be 10 to 25 feet down from full pool, which means absolutely nothing to a mountain lake that is 310 feet deep! You want the lake to be down at least 15 feet because it exposes hundreds of beautiful secluded beaches! The only complaint we ever had in 9 years was the summer the water level was at full pool and there were no beaches to park a boat and explore. We don't hang out at the dock, we explore new beaches every day! 50 yards out from my dock is 60 feet deep. The dock is always in at least 10 feet of water.

You'll love Lake Jocassee's crystal clear mountain water and secluded sandy beaches. Enjoy the Southeast's best kept secret! Stay in one of only seven homes that rents to the public on the 75 mile shoreline that has a total of 45 homes. Wilderness abounds as only 2 miles of shoreline is developed!!

This house has the feel of a Montana mountain retreat. Just steps away, your private dock with ladder and boat tie up is in a secluded cove where you can enjoy swimming and boating in the crystal clear water. The kids will love the 4 kayaks and one canoe. ! Do you want to water-ski in the middle of the day on the weekend? No problem, no boat traffic!! You can't do that at Lake Burton or Lake Lanier! Adventurous? Park your boat at the head of one of five major trout streams, and enjoy a cool afternoon of rock hopping and trout fishing. Feeling lazy?

Park your boat at one of nine waterfalls which feed directly into the lake and nap with the soothing hum of falling water where the temperature is 10 degrees cooler than the main body of water. Love to hike? Trailheads are on the lake and two miles from the house. After a fun filled day on the water, come back to your home where you can swing in the hammock and admire the sunset as you BBQ on your 50 foot x 16 foot deck overlooking the cove and dock. Free trailer storage in a locked fenced compound 3 miles from the boat ramp at Blue Ridge Boat Storage, 160 Jocassee Lake Road, Salem, SC

About Trey Benton

We love going to Lake Jocassee year round. Our 2 boys like all the water sports in the summer, and hiking, hunting and dirt bike riding in the fall, winter and spring. Also, we now live 22 miles from the cabin. So, please feel free to request a preview of the cabin before renting!

Trey Benton purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Trey Benton chose Lake Keowee

Lake Jocassee has only 45 homes on the entire lake!!!!!!! THE FAMOUS LAKE BURTON HAS 1200 HOMES and is a 60% SMALLER LAKE.

National Geographic magazine named, Jocassee Gorges the # 9 out of 50 of the Worlds Last Great Places in it November 2012 issue Destinations of a Lifetime!!!!!!!

Very little boat traffic, sandy beaches and the clearest lake water in the SE!

What makes this cabin unique

The house is not in direct view of another home. Located at the base of Fisher Knob mountain, it is a beautiful walk to the top climbing 800 feet in elevation in one mile.The dock is located in a beautiful private cove. The lakeside deck runs the length of the house providing beautiful views of the NC and SC mountains

Wonderful place to start the new year with family!

  • 4 of 5

Love it! We had 8 adults and 5 children under the age of 7. The cabin was homey and not too many decorations laying around so we didn't have to worry about the children breaking things that needed to be replaced. Phew!!! The kitchen was fully stocked, with plenty of seating for family dinners. Each family had a bedroom to put their things and close their door for privacy, if needed. Loved the open floor living area and the view was very nice. We had the fireplace burning the whole time with just enough of fire wood. Most of all, we loved the privacy of this lot, the closeness to the dock and especially "all" the kayaks. The whole family participated in this exercise. FUNNY and full of Laughter! We had plenty of life jackets, too.

The only thing I'd change would be the walkway to the dock. It came high off the bank of the lake then it turned side ways making it difficult to walk to the dock. We actually slipped off a couple of times. One day the children couldn't walk on it because it was too steep. Fortunately, it rained most of this day so we didn't have to worry about it. Since it was winter and the end of the year I'm sure Trey will do a deep cleaning inside and outside around the cabin getting ready for the summer time!!. Thank you Trey for sharing your dream (Trey's dream). We definitely staying again this summer!

PS. Having no TV or internet and little cell service, didn't bother us at all.

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this house for a few days and it was truly one of the best trips I have ever taken. The house was beautiful and the view was spectacular. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax. The trip was absolutely PERFECT and I cannot wait to go back. Thank you, Trey!!

Private secluded and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful cabin with another family. We have four children under the age of 6 and there was a ton to do! There are trails all around the house with gorgeous views. We spent hours relaxing on the dock. It happened to be a beautiful weekend in February and we were able to take the kayaks out. The house is hidden and very private. We really enjoyed how secluded it was as our kids can be quite noisy :). It was very clean and there was plenty of space for privacy. We really enjoyed cooking in the giant open kitchen. It had everything we needed. The owner, Trey, answerd all of our questions immediately. I'd recommend this beautiful mountain/lake home to anyone!

Labor Day Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We have had terrific experiences at this lake cabin. We have gathered with family from Charlotte and Atlanta (mid way location) for the past 4 years at this cabin. Lake is spectacular. We boat in from Devils fork without any problems. The owner has always been available for questions and has even contacted us prior to renting the house for Labor Day weekend to give us first right of refusal….great lake cabin!
