About The Owner

My wife Carmen & I have 4 kids ranging from 15 to 22 years old. We live in Atlanta.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Indian Oaks

We love the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and crystal clear water at Lake Keowee. Close proximity to restaurants and stores in downtown Seneca. Awesome weekend retreat for Clemson home football games.

We love to sit on the balcony with a cool beverage, watch the ducks and turtles in the cove and listen to the beautiful sounds of the lake.

What makes this house unique

We swim and water ski from April to October and snow ski at Saphire from December to March. In the fall we take in Clemson home football games with friends. We always play tennis at South Cove Park (5 minutes away) or golf at one of the several courses in the area.

Crazy lake front home

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a family gathering. It was too cold for us Florida folks to enjoy the lake but we sure did enjoy the fire pit and the changing leaves!! My only complaint (and the reason for 4 and not 5 stars) was the lack of outdoor lighting. It was hard to see the path to the fire pit and back to the house without a flashlight. Highly recommend....Thank you Carmen!!!

Clemson Football Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had two families in town for a Clemson football game. The house was perfect for our group. Easily accessible and close to the Clemson campus. We were able to enjoy the back deck and the lake. We will definitely look to book the property in the future!

Beautiful home & lake

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time boating, skiing & paddle boarding. Loved the well stocked kitchen. Lake felt very clean & private. Only complaint downstairs not equipped for adults , limited storage & would have appreciated blinds on windows and glass door as room was fully lit by 6 am & light glared in from TV through glass door. Otherwise a gorgeous property.
