About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)
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
