About the property

Escape to the peaceful South Carolina forest during your stay at this lakefront 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom vacation rental cottage in Mountain Rest. Up to 4 guests can spend lazy afternoons swimming, fishing, or kayaking on tranquil Crystal Lake, and their evenings relaxing on the covered the porch as the day slowly fades to night. Bring your hiking boots to traverse the miles upon miles of trails that surround the community, or just take it easy and enjoy local bluegrass musicians on weekends!


Bedroom: Queen Bed | Living Room: Full Daybed

Wake up each morning and breathe in the fresh South Carolina air from the comfort of the private balcony. The only sounds you'll hear as the sun rises in the morning are noises made by local wildlife and the wind whistling through the dense forest that surrounds the house.

Inside the home, you can cozy up next to the wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Utilize the cozy space to play board games with your travel companions!

There are plenty of tasty restaurants in town, but there's no need to leave to comfort of your home-away-from-home when you get hungry! The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up delicious meals.

Any grill masters in your group will love using the gas grill outside to grill up a juicy barbecue dinner! Stay outside after dinner and enjoy listening to the chirping crickets and the fireflies illuminate the night sky.

Everyone in your travel group is bound to sleep well after a day of outdoor adventure.The bedroom boasts a queen-sized bed for 2 guests, and 2 additional guests can sleep on the full-sized daybed in the living room.


You won't have to venture far from the property to experience a wonderful vacation! The cottage is surrounded by the forest, and is only steps from beautiful Crystal Lake. You can spend your days swimming by the dock, or bring your kayak out to explore the lake.

Whitewater Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in the Eastern United States, is only 16 miles from the home. Bring your camera because you'll want to capture photos of this majestic destination!

Adventurous guests will want to try their hand whitewater rafting. The nearby Chattooga River offers class II through V rapids!

Put on your hiking boots and explore the area by foot! The famous 77-mile Foothills Trail has several access points near the cottage.

After a fun day, head into town to listen to bluegrass music and dine on some tangy BBQ!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect spot to get away from it all.

A unique quiet get away with wonderful views.

Lake Crystal is beautiful, serene and perfect for a relaxing day of sunning, kayaking, swimming or fishing.

Spent a weekend here before dropping our daughter off at College and we couldn't have picked a better place for quiet family time.

John the owner was very pleasant and helpful with anything needed.

We will definitely return

Very remote and private setting

  • 5 of 5

This property is located just inside the Sumter National Forrest outside of Walhalla, SC...maybe 49 minutes from Clemson. It is set back in the woods and on the very private and small Crystal Lake. Charming and away from most everything. Outside of a gas station across the entrance road to the property, you have to head into Walhalla for groceries which is about a 20 minute drive. No big deal, and the town has the amenities needed and has direct access to I85. That is what makes this remote property a hidden gem, no one can ever find you. Spotty cell reception and internet can be cumbersome to some, but we loved unplugging. We enjoyed canoeing around the lake and went for a dozen morning, afternoon, and evening swims in the refreshing lake. This property is connected to the property owners house if that is an issue. We still had total privacy and interacted with them when we wanted. Otherwise, it was very private. The surrounding forest area is beautiful. We enjoyed waterfall tracking, hikes, swimming, and even white water rafting (center is right around the corner). Great for outdoor types. Also pet friendly, which is a great plus for us. My pup Lucy enjoyed swims in the lake also. A great porch area overlooks the lake and is great to relax and watch a rainy day or nightfall roll in. Just bring food in, and you’ll never have to go into the city for anything. We enjoyed the property and it was great to totally unplug before heading back to work.
