About Larry Cossio

I am a married insurance broker with 3 sons and two labs that love the water. We love to kneeboard and water ski and just float on the lake.

Larry Cossio purchased this house in 2010

Why Larry Cossio chose Seneca

We have been coming to Lake Hartwell for 16 years and driving home after a long day on the lake was killing me, we never want to leave so we purchased a home and made it someplace to share. The close proximity to grocery stores, launch ramps, hospital, and shopping made this quiet location a dream come true. We love to enjoy our coffee on the deck in the morning watching the squirrels jump from tree to tree. And we love sitting on the deck enjoying a cocktail in the evening with a few friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for Scott's (our oldest son) last swim meet at Clemson. Not only his last, but final meet at home for the whole team as the program has been cut. We had a wonderful Saturday night with steaks on the grill and games of gin, spades, and Guestimation. Suzy and boyfriend left early Sunday to return to Georgia Tech. We spent a glorious time on the dock after a delicious brunch at Potbelly in Clemson. Now off to find a geocache and then fly back to Houston!

Great Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay while we moved our daughter into Clemson and thought we would try VRBO instead of a hotel. This was our first time using VRBO and couldn't have been more satisfied with our choice.

The house was beautiful and had everything that we needed. It had enough room for our whole family and our boys loved the pool table! Just an all around great place stay!

Wonderful clean airy quiet spaces for family

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen and bedrooms were fully outfitted with everything we could need; beds were amazingly comfortable; huge screened porch and large dining room offered lots of room to spread out and enjoy time together. Highly recommended the house -- as well as the pontoon rental, as the dock is ideally located on the lake!

Graduation weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were specifically looking for a handicap accessible house for graduation weekend so we could bring grandparents along. The house worked great. It was fully equipped with everything we needed. The screened in porch was an awesome gathering place to sit and enjoy the lake and time together. Parking was wonderful since we also had to bring a truck to pack up our senior to move him out. Larry was extremely responsive and accommodating.

Owner's Response: That is awesome the grandparents were able to enjoy some R&R and see their grandchild go through graduation!

Relaxing Time

  • 5 of 5

This house was in such a convenient location. Quick access into Clemson for restaurants, groceries, etc. The location on the lake was great as well. The house was in a quiet area, comfortable, updated very well, & the best supplied house I've rented through VRBO. The huge screened porch was a favorite for all in our family. The owner was great to work with and I would definitely rent it again.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect location for visiting Clemson for our sons Graduation. We had 5 people which were accommodated in the 3 bedrooms. The wonderful screened in patio has lovely views of the lake. House is very clean and nicely decorated. Wish we had found this when my son was a freshman! Larry the owner is pleasant to work with.
