This spectacular Lakefront Vacation Home is located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the mountains of SC. We are in Tamassee-between Lake Jocassee and Keowee to the East, Walhalla and the Chattooga River just west, and Cashiers just to the North. Relaxing at a great lakefront retreat, enjoying Clemson Tiger football, and hiking, whitewater rafting and exploring, are all convenient and nearby. This top shelf home is located on a beautiful private 320 acre boatable lake with a large private dock, swimming area and a nice view of the SC Blue Ridge Mountains. The home has Direct TV and satellite internet. With the internet, it is easy to find out where things while you are there. This is a great family vacation rental home for both the active group and the 'kickback and relax' family. The home is very fully equipped and is very upscale, yet casual. We are on Lake Cherokee, a true hidden gem, but there is not much published on this lake. Email us for more information.
Hiking and Waterfall Details: This is one of the best hiking areas you will find the country, especially for novice hikers. There are 20 or more nearby outstanding waterfalls, mostly off of easily hiked trails. This area of SC (Oconee County) and nearby NC (Transylvania County) has one of the densest concentrations of waterfalls in the United States. There are two reasons for this: an ample supply of water and a sudden change in elevation. The Blue Ridge escarpment provides the sudden change in elevation, separating the gentle rolling hills of the Piedmont and the more rugged terrain of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Most trails that traverse this narrow region change 2000 feet in elevation over a distance of 4 miles. There are many shorter trails and most of these waterfalls are easy and short walks from public roads. The nearby Chattooga River, which is a national protected river, has been kept 'wild and scenic' and is a great place to explore, either hiking, canoeing, or even high adventure whitewater rafting.
Lakefront Living: Our home is convenient to many nearby 'natural' places for family fun and adventure. The large mountain lake in our back yard provide options for full days of great relaxing activity, or just a place to wind down in the evenings. The lake offers fishing from our lakeside and we provide canoes and kayak for our guests. While the lake is big enough for skiing, only homeowners boats are allowed on the lake.
This home is in an area where Nature can provide more family entertainment than one can do in a month. Even so, with Clemson University nearby, Historic Walhalla and the annual German Festival, the weekend music 'pickin'' at Mountain Rest, great shopping in nearby Cashiers, nearby golf, and much more, you will find this area of SC true to its nickname of the 'Golden Corner'.
Other Activities: waterfall exploration- this is the #1 area for spectacular easy-to-get-to waterfalls within a close proximity of one another in the eastern USA
Golf: There are several nearby golf courses, from a par 3 course in nearby Seneca to the championship golf course at Clemson University. There are some great private courses at Lake Keowee (the Cliffs) if you have some connections. The closest 18 hole golf course to the house is about 10-15 minutes away and is a decent and inexpensive public course - Falcon's Lair, which is just off Highway 11, between the Lakehouse and the nearby town of Walhalla, SC.
