About The Owner

My wife and I both worked for IBM from which I retired the year we designed and built this home on beautiful Lake Keowee. We have four children and 10 grandchildren. Sandra is still working as a travel agent and we spend a lot of our time traveling. We also spend several months in Mexico every year. So we decided that we should share our little corner of paradise. We hope that you will come and enjoy our home and have a wonderful vacation.

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home. It is absolutely beautiful. We appreciated the gift basket and the information basket.

After our son returned from his mission trip during his Clemson Spring break your home was the perfect solution. Allowing us to spend time together while he recovered and rested. We were able to provide him with home booked meals and beautiful sunsets.

We are so thankful you opened your home to our family. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you.

Best part of South Carolina is southern hospitality...

  • 5 of 5

Hi Wayne and Sandra

Unfortunately we have to leave tomorrow after two wonderful weeks at your house. We were blessed with beautiful fall weather - sunny warm days and cool nights. There are so many beautiful national forests, state parks and waterfalls in the area. We enjoyed the hiking and natural beauty that northern South Carolina has to offer. The best part was coming back to your home every evening for a magnificent sunset. We have a son in law who graduated from Clemson University so it was nice to drive through the campus. The botanical gardens were wonderful. We went back a second day just to do bird watching. One day we drove an hour to northern Georgia to visit the Tallulah Gorge State Park - breathtaking! Of course the best part of South Carolina is the southern hospitality. We loved the people and the area.

Many thanks for sharing your wonderful home with our family! The views from your kitchen and great room are stunning! the views made cooking a little more fun! Our boys ( 8 and 10) enjoyed having concerts each night! We all enjoyed many hours out on the kayaks. The sunsets were fantastic. Your home was so comfortable and welcoming - we hope to come back some day soon and enjoy the warmer weather. Enjoy the holidays with your family.
