About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Magnolia Place was completed in 2004, with 7 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 Baths, and 2 shower rooms. There are many bonuses, Perfect for Family Vacations and Reunions!

Located in Oconee County near the middle of Lake Keowee, Magnolia Place is located off of Knox Road and Highway 188, approximately eight miles from Seneca and Walhalla. Magnolia Place has a beautiful view of the big water and the mountain ranges.

This three-level, brick home features 7 bedrooms, five full baths, one half bath, and two separate shower rooms in additional to the great room, entertainment areas, bonus rooms and much more. Magnolia Place was built with the vacation renter in mind and what we, our family, friends and guests would need in our home away from home.

Magnolia Place features over 5000 sq ft on three floors. The main floor has an 18' by 24' great room, with gas fireplace, big screen TV', Blu Ray player, and 22 foot ceilings. French Patio Doors lead from the great room to a 10 by 24 foot screened in deck facing the lake. The kitchen and dining room area is 15 by 24 ft with Cherry cabinets and solid surfacing (quartz) countertops. The main area of the home features hardwood floors. (24 by 38 - kitchen, dining, and great rooms.)

The master bedrooms suite is 16' by 18' with a 6 by 12 walk-in closet and master bathroom suite 10 by 12 with whirlpool bath, large marble shower, double sink, and tile floor and 25' TV with VCR/DVD player. A 10 by 16 foot deck also sits on the lakeside of the master bedroom through French patio doors and connects to the main deck. The main level also has two additional bedrooms, bath, and laundry room. The two bedrooms have queen beds and share a bath on this split bedroom design.

The second floor has a loft area complete with an entertainment area for the kids with 42" TV, one of the two places the kids can hook up their game system. Also on the second floor are two bedroom suites off of the loft area, complete with private baths. The basement level has a walkout French patio door, with easy access to the boat dock from this level. There is one full bath, one half-bath and two separate shower rooms on the lower level. Two additional bedrooms face the lake for more enjoyment. A family room and billiard room provide extra room for entertainment and include a pool table and foosball table and 57' TV, visible from the billiard table. All bedrooms feature a 22' TV with built in DVD player. However, since Charter Cable went digital in early 2014, the 6 (non master) bedroom TV's are for movies only. You bring the DVD's and we will provide the DVD player on the TV.

A large covered dock sits in the water, with room for two extra boats to be tied up. The swim deck is 12 feet by 32 feet with eight feet uncovered and four feet covered for both plenty of sun and shade to make everyone happy. The use of the dock is free for our guests. Parking for six-eight cars is available, 2 in the garage, 4 more on main level outside the garage and additional parking behind the house for boat trailers and more.

This home will sleep a large family, but limited to 15. (King bed in the master, queen bed in main level bedroom #2, and main level bedroom #3. Loft bedroom one has a queen bed and a single bed. Loft bedroom two has a queen bed and a full size bed. The two loft bedrooms are set up as suites with private baths. In the 2 bedrooms on the lower level, bedroom one has a queen and a single and bedroom 2 has a queen and a full size. Bedroom 2 has a private entrance to the full bath. Bedroom one sits beside the half bath. We limit the number of people to 15, even though the house will sleep more than this.

Our guests stay at Magnolia Place is complete with the cleaning and bed linen service provided Guests are asked to leave the home in good condition with the kitchen clean.

Why Sherry Rogers chose Lake Keowee

We built this home in 2004 with the vacation renter in mind. After owning another vacation rental home on the lake since 2002, we knew what our guests needed in their home away from home, so we built it for you!

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy lots of space on 3 floors, with plenty of room to spread out, yet spaces large enough to be together. Besides the great room on the main floor, there is a 12 x 40 foot deck gracing the front of the property, 24' now screened in. There is room for 8 at tables to eat together inside the screened in area and another table and 4 chairs on the deck outside the screened in area. There is a billiard room and an entertainment/game room and a family room in the basement level of the home, as well as a loft entertainment area on the second floor.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

OMG! Thanks so much to Ms. Shirley for renting this fabulous home! It was 8 of us total who shared this 7 bedroom house. We all like our own space, so only 2 had to share a room. There weren't enough pictures for me, as I like to see all the bedrooms and get a good view of the kitchen, but I did find more on another site. However, to actually SEE it, it's totally different. There wasn't anything we looked for or needed that was not there...and enough of it. Open living room with seating for the 8 of us. Besides the beds, we spent a lot of time at the 12 seating dining table--a great place to catch up! The view of the lake was breath-taking. We had breakfast on the screen-in patio. We had no kids with us, but if you are looking for a spot with the kids in minds, this is it. It's a 3-level house. They can dominate the lower level with the pool and foosball tables, another living room w/large TV, 2 bedrooms and baths. It would be like their own little house and it would probably be a struggle to get them to go home! There are those 2 separate showers rooms and a laundry room down there too that makes since as you come in from the lake. There was a note regarding eateries- The Mountain View Steakhouse noted to be the best in the area. SO TRUE! It gives you pause when you drive up, but don't drive past will really be missing out on a treat. GREAT FOOD...and plentiful. If we plan to go back to this area, this house will be our pick. I like to make sure I submit my reviews so others really have a good understanding. This was a great spot for us to get away, relax and enjoy one another without being all over one another.

Awesome house for large family vacatiion!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting a house on Lake Keowee for 5 years now and this is by far the best house we have stayed in. Magnolia Place is stocked with everything you could need and more. The owner is great to deal with and very helpful. On the 2nd day there the TV in the living room went out and she drove to the house the very next day and gave is a nicer better replacement TV. The house is roomy and the dock is perfect for kids and adults a like. Parking is ample and easy to access. The Mountain View Steakhouse (about 7 minutes away) was suggested as a place to eat by the owner and oh boy was she right! Excellent food and service. We brought our boat and there is a public landing very close to launch it. We hope to make this our house year after year!

Great place for a family reunion!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting this home since 2004. We have held family reunions every year since! The home is perfect for a big group. The home is designed to give everyone "space" which is needed for a week long family reunion! :) You will have access to the lake and the dock is great if you have a boat or just want to go down and swim in the lake. The owner of the home is easy to work with and very fair about working out any issues. I would grade our experience as a strong A !!!!!
