About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

This cozy 4 Br cottage has all the amenities of home and feels just as comfortable. With over 16

feet of sliding doors that face the lake, the views begin the moment you wake up. The large deck

provides ample room to expand your living space outside. The sleeping quarters are equipt with 3

queen beds and 2 twins. There is even a king size sleeping loft with large observation sky light

perfect for star gazing (please no children under 10 in the loft area). There is a short, lightly

sloped walk down to the 2 slip covered boat dock and deep waters that await.

Although this cottage feels like it is tucked away in a little piece of heaven, all the modern

conveniences are only blocks away. From grocery markets and restaraunts to bowling and movies,

anything you need is only a hop, skip and jump away.

The back yard is spacious for those families needing to bring along their 4 legged friend

and there is ample parking for families' guests.

Wonderful Cottage with a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. It is perfectly located about 10 minutes from the University of Clemson. Ingles, with a Starbucks located inside, is close to buy groceries and/or prepared foods. The cottage is a great size and is right on the lake. A paddle boat and a canoe were available to use to explore. The cottage's deck was a great place for our family to sit and enjoy each other's company. February offered blue skies and warm weather. Our experience at Lakeside Southern Comfort was very enjoyable.

Our favorite place to stay while visiting our Clemson children

  • 5 of 5

We just love this place! It is the perfect size for our family and we can even bring our boat in warmer weather weather. As I sit with my daughter watching the leaves fall and listening to her play guitar I can’t wait to come back next year!

Perfect location, great views

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I along with another couple stayed here while attending a wedding at the the Lighthouse at Lake Keowee. This location was perfect, incredibly close to all the various events we needed to attend and plenty of room in the house to get ready. We had a blast!

Awesome weekend --close to Clemson!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Clemson and staying at Lakeside Southern Comfort was perfect for our family! Everyone had their own rooms, plenty of space to hang out, play cards and enjoy the deck. We didn't get much lake time, since we went to the football game---although we did head out on the paddle boat and canoes--and that was fun.

Erika was easy to work with --responsive and helpful as we made our final plans. Very clean home--clear instructions on check in and check out, and only 10 minutes from Clemson. It was a fantastic weekend--just too short!

Lake Keowee is one of the most beautiful fresh water lakes in the entire South offering majestic

views, sparkling blue water and mountain views. The lake is located near Seneca, a small town in

hours from Atlanta, GA.

Lake Keowee consists of about 18,000 acres and with approximately 300 miles of shoreline it is

Jocassee State Park (15 miles) and abundant golf courses such as Cross Creek Plantation. You are

and trout fishing. With over 400,000 acres of undisturbed forest, you never run out of exploring

opportunities. The mild climate with average temperatures in the 60’s, make year round recreation a
