BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS LAKEFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME-NEAR LAKE JOCASSEE

Tamassee House Rental Photos and Description

- 3 BR, 3.5 ba, Private Full Bsmnt w/Twin & Dbl (Sleeps10)-HSWireless-Pool Tbl

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.

Dear Marc and Sharon,

We had a wonderful time at your lake house. Your home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kids enjoyed playing pool and ping pong. My son loved canoeing on the the lake with his dad. They even caught a few fish. My daughter and I enjoyed shopping in Seneca and Highlands. I would have been content just to sit and read on your fabulous screened porch. There's so much to do and see in the area and we ran out of time so we'll definitely make plans to stay again.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE LAKEFRONT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 11-year-old daughter, and I had a very relaxing and fun time at this beautiful house full of conveniences. The large screened porch overlooking the lake was our favorite place to hang out and read, eat, play games, and just sit viewing the scenery. The lake was great for a swim, and we used the kayaks early in the morning before the motorboats were out. In mid-June the lake was not very crowded during the week, more so on weekends. We went on three waterfall hikes that were all within about a half hour drive of the lake, and doable for reasonably able and adventurous kids and adults. Owners had left a waterfall hikes guidebook that made exploring fun and easy. Nearby Walhalla has a huge Ingles grocery store for all your needs, and the kitchen at the house is well equipped for cooking. Ping pong table in the basement was a big hit, too. The owners are very thoughtful and checked in while we were there to make sure all was well and to see if we had any questions. One thing to be aware of--there is wifi, but you are limited on usage, so no streaming from Netflix or online gaming. We didn't mind this at all, but good to know if you have kids.
We would suggest two tweaks to the directions given by the owners--when turning off of Rte 11, look for the Piedmont Forestry Center sign and turn there onto Cheohee Valley Rd. (we never saw the Kitchen Table restaurant they mention.) Then turn left immediately BEFORE the second church onto Cherokee Lake Rd. The rest was easy to follow.
Thanks for a great stay! We would love to come back again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is well layed- out for a large family group. Marc is very responsive to any questions we had, and Lake Cherokee is a wonderful size for a quiet stay at the lake. The shallow sandy entrance is great for young children and those unsteady on their feet.

Car: necessary

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.
