Why Mike Grandis chose Seneca
Lake Keowee is a huge lake with all kinds of inlets, parks and places to explore. Being close to the town of Seneca is a nice advantage as it provides a small-town feel, with lots of Southern hospitality, but also has all the modern conveniences including two grocery stores, a Super Wal-Mart, lots of great restaurants, a movie theater and a bowling alley. A short way further and you are in the college town of Clemson. We especially enjoy providing accommodations for the fanatic Clemson Tiger football alumni who gather every Fall at our home for Clemson homecoming weekends. There is no lack of things to do between the Lake, the towns, the many state parks, hiking trails, tennis, golf and the list goes on and on.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We came for a staff training retreat. Even when the weather was bad there were tons to do. We found the kitchen perfect for large meals. The living rooms downstairs and up was great for group gatherings. The boat was large enough to fit our entire group. This home has everything needed for a relaxing trip to the lake. We would definitely come back.
