About Harriet & David Woodward

The Woodwards - We are a family of four that searched for many years to find the perfect lake and a wonderful home with an incredible view! Regardless of the time of year, there are beautiful long range water views across big protected water.

We searched mountain lakes throughout Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina...Lake Keowee offers shear beauty, proximity and incredible uncrowded lake recreation. The long lake season and views of the Blue Ridge mountains are breath taking. 10 mins to Clemson

Perfect location, perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Just wow! The location of the cottage was close to the waterfall, the rock, and the rope swing as well as pretty close to a fuel dock. Pretty impressive for a lake as big as Keowee. The cottage was beautifully decorated and had such a feeling of home to it. The home was super clean and the kitchen well stocked. They provided linens for the beds as well as towels. All of these things made our stay that much better. David, the owner, was easily accessible if we had any questions, including how to find the swing or the fuel dock. He also recommended things to do in the area. He even allowed us to change our week of vacation when a work problem came up and interfered with our plans.We couldn't be happier with our experience and plan to return!

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We changed our vacation routine and stayed at a lake rather than the ocean. We fell in love with this cottage. It has everything you need for your vacation. Owners have gone out of their way to make their home your home away from home. We enjoyed the Wednesday Flea market a few miles up the road in Pickens, rented a pontoon boat and enjoyed swimming and fishing in the lake. Very quiet area with lots to do if you choose or do nothing but relax and enjoy your time away from it all. The owners were very easy to work with and all emails and calls were returned with a few hours. You couldn't ask for more.. My husband is already talking about renting it again this year..

We love Lake Keowee

  • 3 of 5

House was in good condition, great location on the lake and close to town. There was no queen sleeper sofa that we could find, so that made for a last minute scramble to accomodate all of us. There wasn't a foosball table or air hockey table either, much to the dissapoint of our teenagers. We recieved our damage deposit back 6 weeks after we had rented the property. (after numerous requests) Our contract stated it would be returned in 2-3 weeks. We had a wonderful week, but due to the above issues we would not rent this house again.

Wonderful Fall Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Keowee Cottage and we enjoyed a wonderful long fall weekend! The location is great if you are attending a Clemson game (which some family members did), or hiking the great waterfall trails nearby (which some family members did) or visiting the quaint small towns nearby. The views of the mountains and the lake from the house were beautiful! Our grandson especially enjoyed canoeing on the lake...the weather was fantastic!!! The house is great for a family of six and has plenty on hand for entertaining everyone!!! David, the owner, was very easy to work with and eager to make our visit enjoyable! We look forward to another visit next year!
