Plan for endless outdoor fun. Jocassee is a beautiful lake and has many waterfalls and rivers. If you have a boat, we have a dock that you can tie up to. Jocassee is a kayaking haven, and we provide 2 kayaks for your use in the lake only. Please inquire about keys for them. There are maps available of the lake at Devil's Fork State Park where there is a boat landing. By water, it takes 10 minutes to get from the boat landing to the Martin House. By vehicle, it takes 45 minutes.
There are hiking trails, sliding rocks, waterfalls and much more all close by. For the sportsman, there are warm and cold water fishing opportunities in every direction. The area is known for its lake and river trout fishing. Close by are Cashiers (30 minutes) and Highlands (50 minutes), quaint mountain towns with all types of dining and shopping.
