About Phil Hester

I built this house and hope to retire here someday and leave it to my children and grandchildren. During this time you get to enjoy what I plan to when I retire.

Phil Hester purchased this house in 2011

Why Phil Hester chose Lake Keowee

I love this area of South Carolina its a big secret that is slowly getting National Attention. It is not hard to get to and has a wonderful views and is close to Clemson, Lake Jocassee & Keowee. It has a central location near Charlotte, Greenville, Asheville, Cashiers, Highlands, Atlanta.

What makes this house unique

The Benefits are that you can have the Mountain Views everyday and the lake access to both Jocassee and Keowee are moments away. Its location is very private. You don't need a boat or pontoon you can rent and they place it in & out of the lake for you. Fishing guides available for both lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and I had a wonderful week. Your home is beautiful and all the extras provided were appreciated.

Things like cleaning products for the counters, soap for dishes. paper towels in bathroom, hand soap in bathrooms etc.

We did not cook! Vacation time. Purchased items for the microwave and a salad.

When I print the pictures, I am going to refer to our week at "Morning Glory" house.

Have a great week and if you get to Naples.....keep our phone numbers and give us a call.

It was a great place for my wife's 40th birthday!

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of the accommodation was extremely nice! Our family loved playing cards on the screened in porch while looking at the gorgeous mountain view! It is a very short drive to the lake & waterfalls in the area! I would definitely recommend this quiet mountain getaway! Phil is very accommodating & a genuinely caring host!

Nicer than home

  • 5 of 5

This home is as lovely inside as the view is outside! The owners have thought of every convenience to make your stay comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated, with lots of seating space for meals and relaxing for large families. The view out the back of the house is stunning and can be enjoyed by many of the rooms. The kitchen is well appointed. The screened-in porch is comfortable and enclosed by two nice decks where the kids cannot escape, so its safe for small children. Immaculately clean, even the unfinished bottom level of the house is clean and dry. Ample, safe parking. Trash pick-up was an extra nice feature in this area where you usually have to haul it away yourself. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive. Convenient to Lake Jocassee and a great hike up at Whiteside Mtn. between Cashiers and Highlands. Pictures do not do the house justice. Owner was very helpful. We recommend bringing binoculars and maybe even a telescope to enjoy the stars and daytime panorama!

Wonderful Vacation on Hwy 11

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time together as a family. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our stay. Lots to do including lake, shopping in Highlands, river rapids, and excellent food. We especially enjoyed our meal at Three Pines, a bed and breakfast in the neighborhood. Private dining with a chef makes for quite the evening.

Terrific Mountain Lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an awesome trip to Jocasee and coming home each night to this wonderful home was just perfect for our family The home is beautiful, well set up for large families or several couples. All amenities you would need were well provided. A morning cup of coffee or evening sunset on the back porch with a view of the Blue Ridge mountains was a great way to start and end each day. Our daily excursions to white water rafting, cliff climbing/jumping, and waterfall exploration were all just a few miles away. We would definitely recommend this home for future travelers.
