Solms Waterfront Retreat - Keowee - Comfortable & friendly
West Union Lake Keowee
Rock Hill, SC

Beautiful and convenient lakefront setting

  • 5 of 5
The home was exactly as described by the owner. We were there for Clemson University Graduation. The home is only about 5 minutes from Oconee County Hospital and the conveniences of Seneca. Lake was full and clear. I could see the bottom to a depth of about 8 feet. This is a wonderful place to relax. Thanks for a great experience.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that our lakefront home has been chosen by Clemson families during the celebration of graduations, as well as football and basketball weekends. It's great to know that great memories have been made and good times have been enjoyed by guests to the lake and area facilities over the years!

Week on Keowee #11584

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this house and we loved it the minute we walked in the door. The pictures really do not show the true beauty of this house. We truly did not want to leave. My husband even remarked that he would love to buy this house..... We really enjoyed the location, the double dock was awesome for the kids, and adults enjoyed sunning on the top and easy access for keeping the boat. We had a lot of fun in the rec room shooting pool and playing ping pong. It was like two houses in one. Even though there was a lot to do, it was still so very peaceful and I enjoyed being there so much. I would recommended to my friends and family. The owner was very nice and the description of the house was so accurate, every detail.
Thank you for sharing this lovely house with me and my family. We made some great memories.

Solms Waterfront Keowee Retreat is located only 3 miles from most shopping, 11 miles from Clemson University, and close enough to Asheville, Atlanta, and Greenville that weekend travel is simple. Our five house subdivision also provides rest from the heavily populated resort areas when you want some peace and quiet. A bald eagle was even spotted on the property this spring!
