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 in Keowee Key, 35 minutes from the cabin. So, please feel free to request a preview of the cabin before renting! Call 256-566-1342 Trey Benton

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!

Very cozy house
My family loved that there were kayaks and a canoe to use. I loved the fact that there were not 100 stairs to get to the water as was with my last rental on the lake. Would have liked screens to allow open widows in the cool evenings.
House was great! Very comfy and plenty of room to spread out. We had 11 people sleep comfortably, but sharing 2 bathrooms got kind of crazy. The view was amazing. The steep driveway turnaround was difficult to navigate for my husband’s truck, however our other cars didn’t have a problem. There was a TV, as advertised, but we were unable to watch it because there is no cable connection or satellite. (I must have missed that in the fine print.) We came there to spend time with family, not watch TV, so we didn’t mind much. The Wi-fi signal was weak, but NY Day we were able to watch 1 football game on iPad. We loved the canoe and all the kayaks, as well as fishing off the dock. The dock could use some repair. It’s very long and very wobbly. My dad was unable to fish off dock because it was too unsteady and had no hand rails. When the water was high, part of the dock was under water, so our shoes got wet. If this property had a better dock, we would definitely go back!!!
Dock ramp wobble is now fixed.
We had a wonderful time and we will definitely stay there again
Great spot on the lake
Really enjoyed staying at Treys Dream. Communication was a breeze. The house was kid friendly and easily accommodated our family. We had a delightful Thanksgiving meal here and had no issue finding everything needed for cooking our dishes. The view was nice and kayaks in great order for an outing during our visit. Indeed the driveway is steep, but we got the hang of parking after one attempt. Trey was so nice and welcoming and really went above and beyond to make us welcome. We are already planning our summer visit and looking forward to swimming in the lake!
We will be back for sure!
This was the perfect mountain retreat for a couples getaway or a family vacation. Plenty of room and the view is AMAZING! I have never seen lake water so clear. Standing on the dock it was about 8-10 feet deep and I could literally see to the bottom!
