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: lakekeoweeboatrentals.com

(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.

Wonderful time on Lake Keowee

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed the holiday on Lake Keowee at this Lake House. It was a wonderful experience with plenty to do including games, movies, kayaking, fishing, sleeping on the hammock in a beautiful clean house. The furnishings were beautiful and everything was provided. We enjoyed out thanksgiving dinner in a fully equipped kitchen. The sleeping conditions were very nice for the entire family with everyone having their own room. Thank you for a wonderful experience and if we do this again in Seneca, this will be our first choice.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great weekend. The house was truly perfect and fit all of our needs. Kids had plenty to do outside but we had a hard time getting them out of the cool movie room. :) We sincerely enjoyed it and will be staying again! Mike was great to work with and always responded quickly to emails, etc. We can't wait to come back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We came from Pittsburgh to see the Clemson/Pitt football game. (Go Pitt!!). The house is beautiful and met all our needs. Well maintained, clean, and sooo much to do. We used the fire pit and grill and they were both wonderful! Unfortunately, it wasn't warm enough to use the kayaks or canoe. The location is amazing! We all wanted to stay for a week! It was great going out to the back screened porch to have Coffee in the morning!! Thanks so much!
