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.

great location

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect for a relaxing getaway. We totally enjoyed all the extra amenities. Having the separate bedrooms for the kids/grandkids downstairs was a plus :) I loved the screened in back porch. I will have to say the main floor seemed to get really warmer than I would have liked. I am thinking it was due to the large windows. We would definitely use this property again.

Calm and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The lakehouse was great, beautiful property, spacious and lots of activities to do. The game room and theater room was very nice. We had seven women for our yearly retreat and there was plenty of room for all. We enjoyed the screened porch every morning and evening. The owner was reachable, we had a problem with the air conditioner and he was very accommodating and worked hard to get the problem fixed. His son was very, very helpful and so kind to help us with the TV remotes when we were lost. Overall I would recommend the property highly!

Great house, yard, pier, boat and kayaks!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd family reunion in the Grandis, and it's a wonderful property. We have 4 extended families in Seneca and Clemson which visit with us throughout the week. My complaints are that the bed linens, towels and master bathroom rugs need to be replaced; they are the same ones from 2014 and they needed replaced then. We could've used more stackable chairs to use with the drop-leaf table. We used the shower chair and the 3 stackable chairs, and we were still short to seat both tables. Other than that it was great, and we hope to return. Thank you

The perfect multi-family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I chose this house as a family getaway because of the location on the lake and room layout. We had two families with kids, one couple and our parents, so three generations were there, with our dogs.

The bottom bedrooms with a queen bed each and bunk beds were perfect for a family of four. Everyone was comfortable and there were enough bathrooms too!

We swam everyday in the incredibly warm and refreshing water. There was enough room for us to cook most meals or bbq and eat together. We swam, slept in the hammock, read in the enclosed patio, and the kids loved the pool table and media room!

I just wish it weren't such a long plane ride to get there, but it was definitely worth it. We'll have fond memories for a very long time!
