'A Stay Away' (the phonetic Cherokee language translation of 'Cedar Creek', the branch of Lake Keowee on which the property is located) is a true Mountain Lake Vacation Home. It is a 4000 sq ft, Lindal Cedar Home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large, open common spaces, a stone fireplace, spacious kitchen with new appliances in 2011, and ample sleeping areas.
In addition to two bedrooms with king beds, and one with a queen bed, there is a comfortable queen-sized swing bed (on a ceiling-suspended platform) on a sleeping porch, and a bunkroom with 4 beds. One of the king-sized rooms also has an additional set of bunk beds, and each floor has a queen sofa bed (new, firm memory foam mattresses), most comfortable for one adult or two children, of course. In addition, there is a pack-n-play for infants, and a futon mattress which can be used for extra sleeping space.
Queen-2 (including swing bed)
Outdoors, there is a two-level deck, and a two-level dock (great for sunning) on the water, with an extra boat-slip for a boat (boat not provided).
Mostly, you'll want to retreat to the quiet seclusion of the cabin itself. Aside from a rarely-occupied log cabin next door, the nearest house is across the lake! In the summer, there are many lake activities available. Many nearby activities (golf, hiking, shopping) are available, which the owners will be happy to help you research for specifics.
There is a 40' picture tube style TV downstairs and a small flat screen TV on the main floor. While there is a DVD player, VHS player, and satellite receiver, it may not be the best place for TV watching or TV watching parties (eg, sports events). The internet wireless has been present, but with good reception only in a small part of the house, for about 3 years, but we still don't know where it comes from or 'own' it.
The community pays a fortune for good water, with daily testing. In addition the house has a whole-house filter and water softener, which was completely replaced in 2011. There is a separate kitchen drinking water filter. We think it's better than bottled.
The property is about a 30-minute drive from Clemson, SC, a 40-minute drive from Seneca, SC, 50-minute drive from Greenville, SC, and about 45-minutes from Cashiers, NC.

We enjoyed our stay. Location was great with easy travel to Clemson and the mountains. Hope to stay here again at another time.
Our stay was great. We had our annual men's trip here with a total 9 guys staying. The house accommodated us perfectly and had everything we needed to keep all of us entertained. We brought a wakeboard boat and a pontoon boat and were able to keep both docked up for the trip without issue. The dock was really nice and the top deck allowed for some Olympic inspired cannonball contests. The kitchen was fully stocked and we used the grill every night. The pool and foosball tables helped keep us entertained during some evening thunderstorms. Lake Keowee was really nice. It was our first time there and we were really impressed with the cleanliness and beauty of the lake. It got a little busy on Saturday but compared to what we usually see on Lake Lanier on the weekends it was mild traffic. We are already discussing and planning our trip next year back to this spot. We had a great time!
My family of 5 all had a great time at this house. Its super clean and has a great game room for the kids. Cell phone reception is not too good, but it was nice not having access for a few days. The great dock made up for this as we spent a ton of time in the lake swimming. My daughter of 9 even caught a fish in the lake.
The walk down to the floating dock could be a challenge for elderly if they have bad knees, but otherwise its not bad.
