About The Owner

I am Brent Kerger from Tallahassee, Florida. I am a research scientist for my regular job, but my wife and I invested in rental properties in Florida plus this one in the mountains of South Carolina. We manage and maintain all of our properties personally, and have been doing this successfully for about 15 years in total.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Pickens

We bought a lot and built this rental property at The Rock at Jocassee because we fell in love with the beautiful area and the fantastic access to waterfalls, lakes, state parks, mountain vistas and wildlife that our family has enjoyed every year. Scenic Highway 11 has more than a dozen state parks including Table Rock State Park which is just a few miles east of our property. Great sites to visit in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee are within an hour's drive. This is really a great location for natural family fun at a very low cost.

What makes this house unique

We built 'Waterfall Dreams' with families in mind. The upstairs has the master bedroom and bath, plus a kitchen, great room and sun room with treetop views in back and foothill/mountain vistas off the front covered porch. There is lots of seating upstairs for feeding a large group and just relaxing in the peaceful mountain environment. The downstairs has three more bedrooms and a game room for the kids, plus a nice deck and BBQ grill out the back door. This is one of only two homes that were built so far in a quiet subdivision off the golf course development. The clubhouse is a mile away and has golf pro shop, restaurant/bar, swimming pool, tennis, and other amenities.

Our Second Enjoyable Stay !

  • 5 of 5

This is our second vacation at this wonderful, comfortable home. The views of the fall leaves from the house were breathtaking ! We enjoy hiking to waterfalls and since we`ve already seen the majority of falls in this area, we drove to Cashiers, N.C. to see Silver Run Falls (gorgeous). Another day we took a side trip to Greenville, S.C. While there we saw beautiful Reedy River Falls. The coolest thing is that the Reedy River flows through the historic west end district of Greenville and the Reedy River Falls Historic Park (location of waterfall) is on South Main Street. Lots of great restaurants nearby too. We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay here at this lovely and spacious home and plan on returning for a third time when we can.

The property was well situated, exceptionally clean, well outfitted. Not so friendly to senior citiz

  • 3 of 5

Loved the location. Primary dissatisfaction was that there was only one bedroom, but 2 baths on main floor while stairs to lower floor were very steep. Our group of 4 included 2 seniors with concerns about the stairs. 2 younger members had no problems. We had chosen this place for the fact that it had 4 bedrooms because we wanted a room for each. One senior chose to try futon on main floor, too short, moved to sofa, okay but not as hoped.

Booking through Homeaway had some probblems. Property Manager was superb.

This property would be superb for a different age range.

Nice place. Well stocked with everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay, but the A/C did not work well. Keeping it at 85 degrees was not comfortable for the not so fall like temperatures. We may come back again in the winter months, but never in the spring or summer.

Owner's Response: We regret not being able to quickly resolve the central air conditioning problem, and are providing a discount to offset the inconvenience. The air conditioning and heating have been restored to 100% function as usual. Sorry again for the inconvenience. Brent
