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.

blessings,

nancy jane and bob

Wonderful family trip

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house, beautifully decorated. Owner has thought of every detail, including extras that are sometimes over looked. The pictures do not do the house justice, amazing views, great patio and plenty of parking.

Would recommend for family gatherings, plenty of space for everyone.

Beautiful Home with Extraordinary Views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home so all of our family could be under one roof as we commuted to and from Clemson University to attend our daughter's graduation. Our group included my in-laws, my mom, my husband and myself. Everyone had a room of their own and the spacious living area and dining area afforded us the opportunity to enjoy a TV show together as well. The house is aptly named "morning glory" as we saw a spectacular sunrise and enjoyed scenic views of the area when traversing the hilly terrain to reach our destination. The home itself is lovely, with incredible attention to detail in its craftsmanship and design. The kitchen was also stocked with spices and coffee, olive oil etc. and all the dishes, pots, pans and storage containers you would need. We did a quick inventory before going to the store and found that we only needed the basic perishables for our stay, since we only ate breakfast at the house. The owners are very accommodating and offered great ideas for local touring and sights. We felt at home from the moment we arrived and it seemed more like we were staying at a friend's home rather than a stranger's. If you are considering this home for a short or long term stay, you cannot go wrong with this property or the owners.

A Fine House

  • 5 of 5

My family, 5 adults and a 3yr.old baby boy, enjoyed a lovely New Years weekend in this fine home at Lake Jocassee. Could not participate in outdoor activities, but loved the comfort of the arcitecture and decor of this very well appointed home. Until the fog rolled in, the view was spectacular. Host very accomadating and communicative. We know this area and their are wonderful fun towns and cities for day trips.

A good find!
