Our beautiful lake front vacation home is seated in the blue ridge mountains 30 minutes from Seneca, SC. This unique property is a great place to get out into nature without letting go of modern conveniences. Take our canoe out on the lake, hike to dozens of different waterfalls, eat delicious local food from a family owned restaurant, and more.
Having traveled myself scores of cities in more than 30 countries.... I will say without equivocation... that this little gem of natural beauty in Mountain Rest, SC is my favorite place on the planet. Far from any major city... the stars come alive before your eyes. Many a night I have taken the canoe out in the dark and stared for what seems like hours, the silence is broken only by the sounds of pure nature.
Every season, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... offers a totally different experience, with different flowers in bloom, wide variation in climate, and other dramatic changes that easily impress a city boy like myself. Out here, you are disconnected enough to let go of the constant interruptions of modern life... but with WiFi available you can always reconnect at a moments notice.
Going to town is an event in and of itself, involving a scenic drive down a curving mountain road and a choice of three routes.
1. South on 28 to Walhalla, Seneca, or Clemson, South Carolina.
(This is the most popular route for a quick trip to Wal Mart, Home Depot, etc)
2. East via local roads and 76 West to Clayton, Georgia.
3. North on 28 to the popular resort town of Highlands, North Carolina.
Each of these excursions is a 30-50 minute drive and offers unique experiences in dining, culture, nature, and more in three different US states. See our guide book for specific recommendations in each of these locations.
Of course, if you just want to stay in and relax... you can grab groceries on your way and never need to leave for anything. There is always the Mountain Rest Cafe... a 5 minute drive from the house... and the only restaurant on the mountain. The food is delicious.... but it is not open early in the week so plan accordingly.
In conclusion, there is no way I can properly describe for you just how special this place is... and I am biased anyways... but to quote one of our previous guests. "The listing didn't begin to do justice to this place and its beauty".

You will have the home to yourselves for the duration of your stay. If there are any issues please contact us via AirBnB or phone and we will address them as soon as possible. Because we live out of state, a meeting is unlikely, but there are contingencies for getting into the home in case your code doesn't work, and local family that we can call for emergencies.
There is a canoe on the property and life jackets please feel free to use at your own risk but return to storage when done. Guests may not launch motorized boats into the lake.
This home is in a natural setting with a steep downhill slope to the lake and no guardrails. We do not recommend for small children. Swim at your own risk as there are no life guards on duty.
