The back of the house has a screened and open air porch to relax, romance, and create family memories for a lifetime.

Much of the furniture has been custom made locally with lodge pole pine tree. This property has 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and enough sleeping arrangements for 6 guest to spread out comfortably throughout an impressive 1,350 square of living space, making it idea accommodation choice for a family or a group of close friends looking for the ultimate mountain-lake experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely enjoyed our week spent at the cabin. We rented a boat and which made it easy for us to fish each day and go in search of new waterfalls.. After a long day on the water, it was nice to come "home" to the cabin and enjoy all it has to offer. The area is very quiet and the porches provided a great place for meals and enjoying the afternoon rocking or on the swing with an awesome view of the wilderness as I read my book. . Thanks and we look forward to returning soon.

Beautiful Home, Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, and just like the first, everything was great. Michelle, the owner, was very responsive, and the house had all the amenities we needed. The addition of the new TV was a welcome one for our kids! The location is perfect for our boating on Lake Jocassee. Thanks for everything Michelle!

pristine clean and very private

  • 5 of 5

They tell you it is well stocked, but just to be sure we brought some things we thought we would need. We could have saved the space, they really did have everything you will need to enjoy yourself. The one thing we didn't realize until we got there was just how private the property is. The property is very secluded and we felt like we were all alone, just us and the beautiful wilderness.

Very private with great access to Lake Jocassee and Devils Fork State Park

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at your cottage. The cottage was well equipped and you could not beat the privacy. It was only a few minutes to drive to Devil's Fork State Park and very convenient to the many waterfalls in the area. Our stay in the area was too short but we will definitely stay again if we are ever back in the area.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 weeks in November. I had originally only booked a stay for a few nights but our other accommodation turned out to be awful. I called Michelle and asked to extend our stay and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. It only took about 30 minutes and we had everything booked and settled. The house is super clean, modern, and very comfortable. It has excellent wi-fi and Apple TV. I was on a business trip and working nights. It was so quiet during the day that many days I slept until the evening time. Michelle is a wonderful host and I would recommend this property to any couple, family or individual looking to get away in a quiet clean and comfortable place. The entrance to Lake Jocassee is a 2 minute drive. There is a boat ramp, outstanding rental center and hiking trails all near by, I will definitely be back!

Excellent house/cabin in a secluded, peaceful area

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed the cabin/house. I'm not sure which we enjoyed the most - the warm, comfortable feel of the cabin or the fact that everything we needed was there waiting for us. The cabin itself was cozy and peaceful, yet the furnishings and kitchen were very up-to-date. Michelle really thinks of her quests, as there were easy to follow instructions, all the light switches were marked, and the bathrooms and kitchen had everything needed for a stay. Plus, the only sound you hear sitting on the deck is the wind rustling the leaves in the surounding trees. Very peaceful, and a great location for accessing the many area state parks. We highly recommend this cabin.

What a beautiful little spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the accommodating way the owner made us feel for our anniversary celebration. Michelle was more than flexible, and the thoughtful little details were everywhere! Quiet, clean, with everything we needed!

We will book again as it is very near to our favorite places in the Carolinas. You could not go wrong by booking this spot.

Very Sincerely,

Tom and Amy M.
