About John Robinson

I have been fascinated by the waterfall country of the South Carolina Upstate for the past 25 years. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the area with my guests. I hope to make your stay at Maplecrest a memorable one.

John Robinson purchased this house in 2005

Why John Robinson chose Lake Keowee

Maplecrest is situated 1 mile from Lake Jocassee, the most pristine fresh water mountain lake in the southeast. The 75 mile shoreline is almost entirely protected as a watershed area and is part of the Jocassee Gorges Conservation Area. Visitors can bring their own boat or rent one for daily adventures or take a guided waterfall tour. Perhaps enjoy a day of world class fresh water fishing or hiking on one of the waterfall laden nature trails. This is truly natures paradise at your doorstep.

What makes this house unique

Maplecrest is a picture postcard vacation rental home. Previously owned by a stained glass artist, there are many of her original works on display throughout the home. The master bath offers a whimsical hand painted wall mural of an outdoor garden and is a delight to all. Quiet evenings on the screen porch overlooking the woodlands with hummingbirds feeding in the twilight complete the serenity.
