Why Mike Grandis chose Lake Keowee

Lake Keowee is a huge lake with all kinds of inlets, parks and places to explore. Being close to the town of Seneca is a nice advantage as it provides a small-town feel, with lots of Southern hospitality, but also has all the modern conveniences including two grocery stores, a Super Wal-Mart, lots of great restaurants, a movie theater and a bowling alley. A short way further and you are in the college town of Clemson. We especially enjoy providing accommodations for the fanatic Clemson Tiger football alumni who gather every Fall at our home for Clemson homecoming weekends. There is no lack of things to do between the Lake, the towns, the many state parks, hiking trails, tennis, golf and the list goes on and on.

What makes this house unique

We rent boat and Jet Skis which we can have waiting for you at our covered dock! For more information on boat and Jet Ski rentals go to our Boat & Jet Ski website at:

(Note: we also rent to others staying elsewhere on the lake)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for a staff training retreat. Even when the weather was bad there were tons to do. We found the kitchen perfect for large meals. The living rooms downstairs and up was great for group gatherings. The boat was large enough to fit our entire group. This home has everything needed for a relaxing trip to the lake. We would definitely come back.

We were very pleased with the property. The owners were very good about answering questions and responding to our calls. The location was perfect for our family ranging from 21-82 years old. The boat was a huge success as well and it helped renting from the owners as well. Thanks Grandis family for allowing us to make lifelong memories!

Wonderful lake vacation with our whole family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this comfortable lake house. It has every convenience and is lovely without pretense the way a lake house should be. We also rented our boat from the owner and they couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. The lake is gorgeous as well. It was hard to leave and we will definitely return. Thanks Grandis group!!

We had a wonderful time with extended family at the house. There was so much to do inside the house or outside on the beautiful lake. Everyone from all age groups had a great time. Thank you!

The house was perfect for our extended family.

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed was provided by the owners. We spent a lot of family talk time on the screened porch. Wish the furniture on the porch was a bit more comfortable and the fan and light were not working. Not bad if that is the only negative remark. We all felt at home and relaxed. We rented a pontoon boat and jet ski from the owner and they were most accommodating by delivering and picking them up. We would stay here again. Since the weather was perfect for our week we never got a chance to use the theater room but it is a great feature of the house had we had a rainy day.

A perfect week

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our family has been to a lake house. Usually, we go to the ocean. We, meaning me, my children and their children. A total of 13 people. We came from 3 different states to share this experience.

What a nice surprise to find so much to do in this beautiful area. With children as young as 3 and as old as 15, there was something for everyone. We enjoyed eating popcorn and watching movies in the evening in the media room. During the day, we enjoyed the back porch, gazebo, hammock and sitting on the dock. We rented a boat and spent hours out on the lake. The house is absolutely lovely and I would love to rent it again sometime. So much was provided.....all the basics for the kitchen and bathrooms. We found the Grandis hospitality the best!!!!

If you love Lake Life, this is the place for you!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! Fully stocked for everyone. The kids loved playing pool and pinball. There is a movie theater room and plenty of space for everyone. We canoed and caught fish, jumped off the dock, and sat endless hours on the screened in porch. Rent a pontoon boat so you can enjoy the whole lake. This was a fabulous vacation for us!
