Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and I had a wonderful week. Your home is beautiful and all the extras provided were appreciated.

Things like cleaning products for the counters, soap for dishes. paper towels in bathroom, hand soap in bathrooms etc.

We did not cook! Vacation time. Purchased items for the microwave and a salad.

When I print the pictures, I am going to refer to our week at "Morning Glory" house.

Have a great week and if you get to Naples.....keep our phone numbers and give us a call.

blessings,

nancy jane and bob

Nicer than home

  • 5 of 5
This home is as lovely inside as the view is outside! The owners have thought of every convenience to make your stay comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated, with lots of seating space for meals and relaxing for large families. The view out the back of the house is stunning and can be enjoyed by many of the rooms. The kitchen is well appointed. The screened-in porch is comfortable and enclosed by two nice decks where the kids cannot escape, so its safe for small children. Immaculately clean, even the unfinished bottom level of the house is clean and dry. Ample, safe parking. Trash pick-up was an extra nice feature in this area where you usually have to haul it away yourself. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive. Convenient to Lake Jocassee and a great hike up at Whiteside Mtn. between Cashiers and Highlands. Pictures do not do the house justice. Owner was very helpful. We recommend bringing binoculars and maybe even a telescope to enjoy the stars and daytime panorama!

Wonderful Vacation on Hwy 11

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time together as a family. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our stay. Lots to do including lake, shopping in Highlands, river rapids, and excellent food. We especially enjoyed our meal at Three Pines, a bed and breakfast in the neighborhood. Private dining with a chef makes for quite the evening.

For larger groups as yours we welcome and glad you were able get Steve to cook for your group because he is very busy and was able to take care of your Dinner.

Terrific Mountain Lake getaway

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from an awesome trip to Jocasee and coming home each night to this wonderful home was just perfect for our family The home is beautiful, well set up for large families or several couples. All amenities you would need were well provided. A morning cup of coffee or evening sunset on the back porch with a view of the Blue Ridge mountains was a great way to start and end each day. Our daily excursions to white water rafting, cliff climbing/jumping, and waterfall exploration were all just a few miles away. We would definitely recommend this home for future travelers.

Anniversary/Family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
If your plan to stay in the Jocassee Lake area and want a great view of the beautiful mountains in SC, this is a great choice! The home is very well equipped, beautifully decorated, very very clean, and welcoming. The layout of the home lends itself to a great view of the mountains from the Kitchen, living room, and master bedroom, but the best place to enjoy the scenery is on the back screened porch. The sunrises were amazing and every morning was a different "painting." While we were there we enjoyed a day on Lake Jocassee, went up to Highlands and Cashiers, and went searching for Waterfalls. Thanks Phil for all your recommendations and directions.
Not often do you rent a home that is as clean and welcoming as your own. We celebrated our 13th Anniversary with our children, and it was a great vacation full of memories! (almost forgot - buy your groceries in Pickens, the market just down the road is a little expensive but very convenient.)
Thanks again,
Trent and Amanda - Aynor, SC

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the house in October, 2010. It was a lovely house, as the pictures show. The view was fantastic and looking at the fog over Lake Jocassee every morning was worth the trip by itself. The house is located in a rather large community (in terms of total lots), but the number of actual houses in the community was low. This is a big bonus if you are looking for peace and quiet, and there was a security gate at the entrance that is closed at night. Be sure to get the codes before arrival.

The owner was very accomodating and friendly and made every effort to insure that we had a pleasant stay. If you aren't familiar with the area ask him to recommend a few side trips. Highlands is a good shopping town and a nice drive through the mountains. There was also a winery that he recommended, but that we didn't get to.

The house had Dish TV in at least 3 of the rooms, but didn't have internet. This was OK, since we had a VirginMobile hotspot which works by using cell phone signals, and had no problems at all.

In terms of things to do, there are a number of state parks within a 10 minute drive, and the lake is about 5 minutes away. There is a nice, but small shopping center about 3 minutes away (groceries, Ace hardware) and a small, quiet town (Salem) about 5-10 minutes away. The closest "big" town is Walhalla, about 14 miles down the road.

We would have no hesitation about renting again and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to stay in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Vic it was a pleasure to have you and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for you kind comments. We look forward having you again. We have installed DSL and upgraded the Dish to the Hopper System from Dish that has VCR in each room with a TV. Thanks again for your stay and please return again.
