Lakeside Southern Comfort - the coziest cottage on the lake

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2016
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

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 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.

Great place to relax and have fun

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Just as promised the cottage was very nice and clean. It was also nice to have a dock to pull our boat in. Very quiet cove and close to town. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

Cozy Lake Life at it's Best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking to getaway from the beach for a few days with our children and dogs to experience lake life on Lake Keowee and this was the PERFECT spot. The cottage was clean, well stocked, had great air conditioning, beds were comfortable and if you have dogs, you will appreciate the tile floors and ability to keep your furry friends confined to the kitchen and living area. At first you might think the living area is small, but the reality is you spend VERY little time there because the outside is so inviting and relaxing. From dusk til dawn we fished, swam, floated, boated, tubed and then fished some more! Their neighbors are all super nice, and even the college kids who rented a couple of houses down provided some nice entertainment (minus jumping off their roof into the lake:-) If you plan to rent a boat do so WELL in advance because they go quick- we scrambled and thankfully got the last one, but trust me you will want a boat!!!My only regret is booking 3 nights not 4......I would have loved to explore the lake a little more (the coves and houses are amazing!)

Owner's Response: We are happy you found the cottage clean, comfortable and well stocked. We take great pride in maintaining our home and try our best to stock anything you might need away from home for your convenience. We are also so thrilled that you enjoyed the lake much the same way we do - mostly outside! There is just so much to explore and do on the lake. It is just the perfect place to "un-connect" from our busy lives and screens, both for adults and kids alike. As you mentioned, a boat is a great way to see all the beautiful areas of Lake Keowee. If you are looking to rent a boat, I can send you in the right direction. Thank you for staying at our home. We hope that your travels will bring you back to our quiet cove and lakeside cottage. Warmly, Erika

Perfect for our weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were attending our daughter's wedding in the upstate. The cottage was a great choice for our family. The owners were very helpful and provided all necessary information about our stay.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We decided last minute to find a house on Lake Keowee that could accommodate 2 adults and 4 kids. Thankfully, the owners were quick to respond and accept our offer. The house was as advertised and clean. For our weekend stay, it was the perfect fit. The deck is perfect for enjoying the evening, not much time spent inside. There is a marina just down the street that rents boats, so we spent most of the day cruising up and down the lake, which was spectacular. With the ease of rental, and everything as advertised, I will recommend this listing and will probably be staying again.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun filled, enjoyable stay at the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and equipped with everything you will need. We took our two Labs, the access to the lake was perfect for them, very easy to walk into the lake. I think they enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did. Beautiful views from the large deck, great place to relax and watch the wildlife. Could not ask for much better. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us.

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled you enjoyed your visit to the lake and the cottage. Everything you mentioned is precisely why our family loves it so much as well. Relaxing, swimming, wildlife (and for us - boating), are precisely what make lake life so enjoyable. We get excited when our guests get to experience those perfect moments both on the lake and in the cottage. We look forward to having you visit again.

Nice spot, poorly maintained

  • 2 of 5

We had a good time here, but found this property to be poorly maintained - the a/c filter looked like it hadn't been changed for a year, the stove door was not working, there has not been any power washing done in years, and to top it off, the a/c controller turned out to have an automatic setback that raised the temp in the middle of the night - woke us up every night wondering who was raising the temp!

Owner's Response: Our family takes great pride in keeping this home maintained. As with any of our valued guests, we appreciate feedback and are more than happy to address concerns that arise. It is however more helpful to know about any issues during the stay as some things can be resolved with a very simple fix. New, smart, thermostats were installed this past spring and can be be mistakingly reset by guests. With a simple call to the owners we can dial in wirelessly and re-program them upon request. New duct work was also installed this past spring (2015). Because we are a pet friendly cottage the air filters are changed every 6 weeks to prevent build up in our system. (We also mark the date on each filter and the one in question was dated 4 weeks prior to this guests stay.) At the time of this guests stay, a new stove had already been ordered. It has now been installed. The exterior of the cottage was just painted this June and new cedar siding installed. All deck cushions and umbrella were replaced this summer as well. There is one private walkway behind the cottage that leads to the owners personal storage shed that could use a little washing. It is, however, not necessary for any quests to use this walkway as all amenities supplied with the cottage are conveniently located in the cottage or on the dock. Again, we are committed to providing our guests a comfortable and well maintained home to visit and enjoy. We are more than willing to address any concerns as they arise.

Location

Activity and Interests

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

the northwest corner of South Carolina. Lake Keowee is just a short 45 mile drive from Greenville,

SC, the states largest city, 1.5 hours from the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC and just 1.5

hours from Atlanta, GA.

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

perfect for boating, fishing, sailing and other activities. You can expect to see abundant

wildlife, beautiful waterfalls and sandy shorlines and for the brave of heart try one of the many

rope swings or rocky cliff jumping. It is also the site of a Professional Bass tournament each

year.

At Lake Keowee the list of leisure activities is seemingly endless. Local attractions include

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

just minutes away from white water rafting on the famed Chatooga River as well as hiking, camping

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

pleasure. Nearby Clemson University (6 miles), with over 18,000 students, host outstanding community

activities and cultural events. For the sports enthusiast, Clemson brings you the finest in NCAA

sporting events.

Indeed with all of the opportunities and the beautiful, treelined shores of this lake, our home

offers an unparalleled vacation. The spectacular natural beauty will be enough to draw you here and

keep you coming back year after year.
