Did you know?  This area of SC (Oconee County) has one of the densest concentrations of waterfalls in the United States. There are two reasons for this: an ample supply of water and a sudden change in elevation. The Blue Ridge escarpment provides the sudden change in elevation, separating the gentle rolling hills of the Piedmont and the more rugged terrain of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Most trails that traverse this narrow region change 2000 feet in elevation over a distance of 4 miles.   There are many shorter trails and most of these waterfalls are easy and short walks from public roads.  This is an outstanding hiking area for novice explorers, as well as the experienced.  The great rivers and lakes of the area, as well as nearby Clemson, Walhalla, Seneca, Cashiers, and Highlands, make this a great and memorable choice for any family vacation, with plenty to do- to find out more about the SC's Golden Corner, CLICK HERE.  At nearby Lake Jocassee, there is a great outdoor center, where you can rent boats very reasonably.  Here is the link:  Jocassee Outdoor Center .  There is also more area information at the  Jocassee Outdoor Center  web site.

Our Mission

We want to cost effectively reach vacationers and provide renters with sufficient information to make an informed decision when renting a vacation home.  Full disclosure is a common theme to all of the property advertised and all dealings with vacation renters.

First and foremost, we want to rent to caring families, who will respect our property.  In return, we will provide you with more value for your vacation dollar, both in terms of amenities and the rental charge.   

In setting up our home for ourselves and our guests,  we strived for cleanliness, freshness, and providing as many amenities as possible, while being able to keep the rental charge in a reasonable range.   We spent extra money on mattress quality and the furnishings are very niche, throughout.  

In addition to full disclosure, good and prompt service are top priorities in all of our communications.
