You can truly relax in this exceptional 5,000 square foot home, 1 mile from the main highway in Seneca, and only 7 miles from Clemson, opposite game day traffic. Enjoy this pristine lake by renting a boat from the Lake Keowee Marina which is within walking distance, or for a slower pace, you can kayak to one of many islands. A CANOE AND 3 KAYAKS ARE PROVIDED. Pack light! This home is very well equipped for families, including toys, games, beach towels, coolers, wet suits, etc. Stunning water and mountain views can be seen from any of the 3 large decks (each with a grill), the screened-in porch next to the sandbox with playhouse, or from the all-glass dining room with gourmet kitchen. Wireless internet is accessible anywhere in the house. There are 8 TVs with cable and DVD players, and ceiling fans throughout the house, as well as outside. Enjoy the natural beach with fire pit and kayaks. An outdoor shower makes for easy clean-up after the sandbox or beach. We have one high chair, and a new Pack-and Play stored in the laundry room. Please note that the house is child-friendly but not baby-proof.

Our very large gourmet kitchen with central island, 2 microwaves, and double oven is well stocked. The dining room seats 10, and overlooks the lake. The nearby breakfast bar seats 4. The huge 2 story great room has a stacked stone fireplace, TV, and stereo. The wall facing the lake is all glass. The spacious master suite has an attached sitting room which also overlooks the lake and opens out to the deck. The laundry room is large, with plenty of counter space, and a sink. Laundry supplies will be provided for your use.

Upstairs there is a second suite with a king bed and full private bath, IDEAL FOR ANOTHER COUPLE OR A SECOND FAMILY. Also on this level are 2 additional bedrooms which share a full Jack & Jill bath. The king suite and the other two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house, divided by a bridge walkway. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and flat panel TV with DVD player.

The lower level walks out onto a covered deck and a screened porch, both with lights and ceiling fans. The sand box with playhouse is adjacent to the screened porch, so small children can be watched from under a fan. There is a gas grill in the screened porch. Meals in the porch are easy with a second kitchen just inside on this level. A bar that seats 5 is adjacent to the kitchen. The game room has children's air hockey, shuffle board, and numerous toys for small children. A full size sleeper sofa is also in this room. In a separate room is a TV with cable, DVD and VCR. A full bath is also on this level. In addition to a sofa with both ends that recline, there are blow-up beds with linens to accommodate additional guests.

There is a large deck made of Ironwood with plenty of seating along the water's edge walkway between the natural sandy beach with fire pit, and the floating dock which has a covered section with table and chairs, small refrigerator, ceiling fan, and deep water. There are kayaks, life jackets, and wetsuits available for your use. The upper-most deck off the great room and dining room has additional seating as well as a gas grill for meals inside or out. The view of the water and mountains is beautiful!

Unlike other lakes in our area, Lake Keowee's water levels are maintained year round, even at the expense of the lakes both upstream and down, if necessary.

The marina has a launch if you should choose to bring your own boat, and there is plenty of room to park a trailer at the bottom of the lower driveway at the house. Also nearby are two grocery stores and two pharmacies, each approximately 1.5 miles away. There are several restaurants and multiple fast-food choices within 5 miles, and the hospital is approximately 4 miles away.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HOUSE IS ON A QUIET RESIDENTIAL STREET, AND OUR NEIGHBORS ARE NOT NECESSARILY IN VACATION MODE. THEREFORE, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT OUR HOUSE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR LOUD NOISE OR PARTIES, AND IS INTENDED TO BE FOR THE USE OF ADULTS RESPECTFUL OF OTHERS NEARBY.

PARKING IS LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 4 VEHICLES.

LASTLY, PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILE FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ARE OF COURSE WELCOME, THE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE PARTY SIGNING THE RENTAL AGREEMENT MUST BE AT LEAST 35 YEARS OLD, AND MUST BE AN OCCUPANT OF THE HOUSE DURING THE TERM OF THE AGREEMENT. RENTING ON BEHALF OF GUESTS LESS THAN 35 YEARS OLD IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

About The Owner

Jim is a physician who practices in Seneca, about 3 miles from the lake house, and so is nearby most weekdays. Diane is a retired nurse anesthetist, now at home with our 3 children. We've lived in the Upstate of SC Carolina since the early 1990s with this house as our primary residence until 2006, and can think of no other place we'd rather be. We are still only 30 minutes away, and could never completely leave this house, or the lake with mountains in the backdrop. Come visit, and you'll understand why.

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

Spectacular Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular lake house with every imaginable amenity. We also found the owner to be helpful and responsive. The age range of our family is 2 -90 spanning 4 generations and it exceeded everyone's expectations. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Outstanding Lake House..Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week on Lake Keowee and thoroughly enjoyed this lake house. The house is at the south end of the lake with very convenient access (less than a mile away) to Keowee Marina (we rented a boat), grocery stores, and local restaurants. The house is very comfortable and spacious with a deep water dock, sandy beach, and great view of the lake. The owners have stocked the house with everything needed for a great vacation including life vests, wet suits, firewood/fire pit, 3 outdoor grills, kayaks, canoe, paddles, comfortable kitchen and dining areas, and basement recreation rooms for the kids. The booking process was very convenient and the owner was very easy to work with and accessible by phone if needed. I would recommend this lake house to everyone I know.

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is PERFECT! Combined 2 primary families plus 4 grown children and husbands/boyfriends - plenty of room for all. The photographs are not enough to show how beautiful it is. Wonderful family meals around the large table and perfect family fellowship on the deck and the beach and the terrace and the dock. We canoed and swam in the clear green water daily. Took a couple of trips to Clemson but pretty much stayed put and enjoyed playing cards and games and the beautiful setting. Just love this gorgeous house and it's perfect place on Lake Keowee.

Family vacation time

  • 5 of 5

The house is great!! I really enjoyed the sitting room for morning coffee & devotion. The lower deck was a great place for reading. We enjoyed our time spent w/our children & grandchildren. We rented a pontoon & 2 jet skies & everyone had a blast riding & tubing. The pictures don't do justice to this house. It was a 'GREAT place to stay'!! The owners keep you well informed too. We had a great time here!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay at this beautiful lake house! The listing doesn't do this magnificent house justice! Only wish we knew about it 3 yrs ago when our daughter started at Clemson! We will def be making plans to go back. The house was so relaxing and waking up from one of the two masters overlooking the lake was beyond beautiful. We ended up eating most of the time in and BBQing. We did make a trip to the famous Smokin Pig on our arrival and ordered pizza in one day but didn't feel like moving, it was so relaxing. The house is very spacious and well appointed! Our first time but not our last!!!

  • 5 of 5

Jim,

Just wanted to thank you for allowing us to spend New Years at your beautiful home. We enjoyed the Lake, A trip into Clemson, The close drive to 4 water falls from the home and some of the wonderful folks in your neighborhood.

By far the best vacation home we have stayed in, and we have been to more than 20 properties around the US...

Will be letting all our friends and relatives know about this home so they too may enjoy a little piece of heaven like we just did..

Bless up ☝️

Hope to Be Back Next Summer

Car: necessary

Lake Keowee has 300 miles of shoreline and an average depth of 54 feet. Fresh water from mountain springs and streams feeds into this extremely clean lake. Its crystal clear water is great for boating and water sports, and the fishing is outstanding. We're located 45 minutes west of Greenville,SC and 2 hours from Atlanta. Lake Keowee Marina is literally right around the corner where boats and water sports equipment are available for rent. Also at the marina is the Tiki Hut, a bar and open-air restaurant open for lunch and dinner. PLEASE NOTE that we are about as close to Clemson as you can get and still be on the lake!
