LAKE JOCASSEE MOUNTAIN LAKEFRONT HOME

Lake Jocassee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Newly remodeled kitchen as of June 29, 2014!! African granite and new stainless steel appliances. We have also added a stand-up paddleboard for your enjoyment down at the dock.

This cozy 2000 square foot cottage, is located directly on Lake Jocassee with a lovely view of the lake and the mountains. This 4BR, 3BA house sleeps 9 people comfortably without feeling crowded, and is perfect for 2 families to share! There are 2 main levels to the house. The house is furnished with unique, handcrafted mountain furniture, and a warm mountain atmosphere is what you experience when you walk through the front door. There is an extra large dock which is always on deep water, and can fit up to 3 boats. Even if you don't bring a boat, the house is located in Fisher Knob, and with the classic Grumman canoe provided with your rental, you can still easily canoe to some of the best waterfalls on the lake.

All linens and towels are provided and for the low price of $2275/week in the summer, this is the best value on the lake!

People come from all over the world to experience Lake Jocassee and all it has to offer. Activities in the area include: spectacular waterfalls, kayaking, golfing, horseback riding, world class fishing, motor boating and hiking. Watch the stars at night. See deer and plenty of wildlife. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you!

Very quiet and serene! Seasonal snow skiing. Food, shopping, and entertainment at local restaurants can be found in the little mountain village of Cashiers, only a scenic 25 minute drive away. Canoe is provided.

Had a great time and wanted to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time during our recent stay here. The house was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and the price was reasonable. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake from the porch, and we had absolutely no problem with the steps. Also, there are no steps from your car to the house, so it was easy to load and unload all the stuff we brought. We love the location of the house because there are 2 really great waterfalls that are about a 30 minute paddle away by canoe, and the house is only a 25 minute drive to Cashiers. This is a very healing place. The house has a relaxing mountain feel with all the handcrafted mountain furniture, and you just feel great after being here. We've stayed here several times and will continue coming back!

Great Lake - Repairs Needed!

  • 3 of 5
Let me start by saying that we had a wonderful family vacation. The cabin was rustic and the stairs were just as described. The lake was beautiful and my family had a great time discovering all of the waterfalls. My only negative is the stairs and the dock are in extremely poor condition. I would not stay at this property until they were all replaced, many were cracked and rotting. My son was walking on the dock and a board broke, luckily he was not injured. I contacted the number provided, NO ONE has even acknowledged my phone call. I also left a note regarding the situation when we left. Again, no response.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a great family vacation at the house! We are one of the closest houses to the best waterfalls on the lake, and that is the main reason people come to Jocassee --- to discover the beautiful waterfalls.
The house is managed by a professional management company. After each vacationer, the property, including the steps and the dock, is inspected by a maintenace person. Maintenance people are also available for emergency repairs during your stay. Although we never received your call about your son breaking the step, the step was fixed anyway because the maintenace person discovered the broken board during his walkthrough that is always done after every vacationer leaves.
It is important to us that everyone has a fun and safe time during their stay, and we make every effort we can to ensure that. We appreciate when someone lets us know when there is a problem with something, so that we can promply take care of it.

great girls getaway

  • 5 of 5
Had a great girls weekend away with a number of friends. The absence of traffic on the lake allowed for a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere and provided much needed relaxation. We also enjoyed the short drive into Cashier for lunch at Cornucopia...highly recommended!

What an amazing week!

  • 5 of 5
Having read the only review available worried us a little as we prepared for our vacation. I would agree that the home could use a more thorough cleaning, but that is my only negative. If you are looking for a picture perfect HGTV updated home, this is not the one for you. The home was probably originally built many years ago and the "treehouse" master and second kids room are nice additions. It had plenty of room and functionality for our two families. Our families came to enjoy the lake and we absolutely did enjoy it. I counted 178 stairs to the dock. This was no impediment for our active families and was viewed as a challenge with bragging rights for all. I made the trip 11 times one day, so it can be done (yeah, my legs felt it!!!). I would agree that very young or old or limited stair climbing ability would have a problem, but the ad does tell you this. The lake is fabulous and the dock accommodated our motor boat, paddle boards, the 3 kayaks and the canoe. The canoe was a joy! Jocasse is a well hidden secret and a fabulous family getaway. The drive is hilly, but no problem for our 4 cylinder vehicles; you will use up those brakes if not in low gear. Again, not a problem for us. If communication with the world is important, make sure you have a Verizon mobile device. Sprint and AT&T did not connect. We were happy to disconnect from the world, but recognize that safety necessitates some form of device and there is no land line in the home. Overall, an excellent experience and I look forward to another vacation at Jocasse in the future. Oh, one more thing; there is a book filled with happy reviews in the home. Maybe this is a new listing for VRBO, but the house has been a vacation rental for years with very few documented complaints. In fact, most noted the challenge of the 178 stairs as a positive!

Disappointed and left early.

  • 2 of 5
There are MANY steps down to the lake making very difficult to take the trip to visit the water more than once a day. It would be extremely difficult for small children or the elderly. Although the rooms have ceiling lighting, it would be nice to have some lamps in each room. The home is in a very remote area and the gravel road leading to it is very steep. The brakes on our Honda Odyssey smelled of burnt rubber upon arrival. There were areas of the home that could have used a more thorough cleaning. The DirecTV was unable to display CNN or HLN.

Owner's Response: When someone is thinking about a vacation, they need to have in mind what they are wanting. This house is in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a very quiet and untouched environment. Houses in the mountains have pros and cons. The cons are hills and steps. There are many steps from the house to the water, and we state this in our advertisement multiple times. There are no steps from the drive to the house, making it easy to load and unload your car. We don't recommend this property for the elderly or small children, although we have had elderly and small children that have enjoyed the house and how well they sleep after some good exercise!
The roads around are hilly. We recommend that people gear down when going down hills to avoid brakes that smell.
We do have professional cleaning people that clean after each guest. We are not perfect, but we are the only house that still gives you the option to clean up when you leave and not have to pay a cleaning fee. We also provide linens and towels, which means our cleaning crew is busy.
We do provide over 100 channels on DirecTV, including CNN and HLN, but we hope that you don't come here and just sit inside and watch TV! There's just too much natural beauty to experiece in this area.
