My husband served in the Army for 29 years. We have 5 children and 3 grandchildren.We think our vacation renters are special people who deserve to have a good vacation when they come to our rental. We try to make them feel welcome and make their stay special.Our goal is to have happy return visitors for the comming years.

Vickie Ketterman purchased this house in 1997

This was our first home and as we adopted and grew as a family we had to find a larger home. We still live in Seneca so if you have any problems or questions we are here for you. We named our home Hummingbird Cottage because we saw so many Hummingbirds flying around the house in the last few years.

We loved this home so we decided to keep it and make a vacation rental for others to enjoy as we did.We love this location so close to the lakes and mountains.There is so much to do here and lots of things to enjoy. Our area is growing with Wine and Cheese Cruses, Wedding Venues and we even have one of the best Wedding Cake Shops in the upstate.

Hummingbird Cottage is located at the end of a Cull De Sac in a middle class neighborhood. It has lots of parking for your water toys or extra cars.We have a 16x32 inground pool with a Custom Fast Slide, a large screened in Gazebo with Patio Furn. and lots of lights for night time swimming. We have water toys and life Jackets for the children (please supervise for safety at pool at all times).

COMFORT OF GRANDMA'S...FELT LIKE HOME...

Comfort of Grandma's...felt like home...
  • 5 of 5
It felt like walking into Grandma's and Grandpa's home ... feeling like... "I'm Home!" .... Everything you could possibly need... With comfortable beds ... fully equipped kitchen ... gameroom ... inground pool with one sweet cabana ... a nice yard for the kids to play in ... With tons of privacy.... The homeowners are very kind.... and make sure all the info for the town is there.... very easy to get to town where everything is... only about 2 miles away from the action.... we loved it! I would definitely recommend this house for renting... especially if you have children who love to swim... they have the coolest custom slippy slide with constant water fall flowing through it.... thumbs up... you won't be disappointed.... ;)

A SMILING FACE IN THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This is our 4th holiday to SC and if you are considering visiting the US I would definitely recommend visiting this beautiful state. It has charm and character you will never forget and every one is so friendly and polite. Up until I visited SC I was always happy to holiday within the UK as there is so much to see and do, though once I visited SC and this area I was hooked even though the flights are quite expensive and the flight is 9 hours. This is the first time we stayed at Hummingbird cottage and I can't express enough how impressed we were as soon as we walked through the front door, the price did leave us a little nervous as we have paid more in previous years, but I can assure you that the old saying 'you get what you pay for' does not apply here, it simply is a very genuine bargain and the owners could charge much more. My husband and I are quite picky and always cleaning so we were over the moon that this property was cleaned and presented to an excellent standard with small baskets of items easily forgotten by visitors, much like you find in a hotel.
The pool was great and the owner came down each afternoon to check and clean it but nets were available to remove any small insects that took an unfortunate swim overnight. The summer house is nothing short of magnificent, though we didn't use it perhaps as much as we could have, in hind site we should have spent the evenings relaxing in there then maybe we would have caught site of the Stag the owner told us about but we missed. The slide proved to be a little steep for my four year old but I'm sure next time we go he will be fine, the diving board he loved and is now well on his way to learning to dive. As expected the pool does drop to around 10 feet but there was a floating divider if your child needs to stay in the shallow end and the bottom of the pool isn't as slippy as some I have experienced so those none swimmers don't suddenly find their selves out of their depth.
The owners I found are open to suggestions but in my opinion if you feel anything needs improving in this fantastic holiday home then you'd probably be better staying at home or taking your holiday home with you (camping) as the owners appear to have thought of everything, right down to children's toys and if this place doesn't impress you then nothing will. My only concern is that with all the great and well deserved reviews the home will quickly get booked up and it will be fully booked next time we want to go.
Fantastic.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, PERFECT FOR A FAMILY VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Hummingbird cottage while visiting my family who reside in the surrounding area.This home was beautifully maintained and well stocked. Owners include plenty of extras in kitchen, baths, and gameroom. Owners were very attentive to all communication. The pool and outdoor patio were amazing. I thought my son would spend all his time in the pool, but the game room proved to be the biggest hit. My husband and I enjoyed the delicious treat the owners left us in the fridge. Thank you for opening your home to us.

RELAXING AND WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoys the wilderness and swimming, and Hummingbird Cottage was the perfect getaway for us. The friendly and helpful owners made our stay very comfortable and easy, and this home was just as advertized. We loved hiking the many nearby trails to see and splash around in the fantastic waterfalls and lakes, and then retiring to the comfort of a private backyard pool and large screened-in lounge/porch area. Great place to enjoy watching children have fun in the pool while grilling, eating or lying back and reading a good book. Very glad we did not go to the beach again this summer and instead explored the breathtaking beauty that surrounds Seneca, SC. We could not have asked for more from this rental and would definitiely stay here again the next time we visit this area.

Owner's Response: We were glad you enjoyed the pool and the waterfalls in our area. We hope the information book at the Hummingbird Cottage helped you find everything in the area. We try to get all the waterfalls, attractions and special shopping places mapped so it is easier to find for your stay. We hope you will think of us again on your return visit. GOD bless

GREAT HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this house. It is very comfortable and cozy. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The kids loved the game room and the pool. The privacy is very nice....secluded from neighbors. The owners were very kind and helpful. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely rent his home again.
