Why Mike Grandis chose Seneca
Lake Keowee is a huge lake with all kinds of inlets, parks and places to explore. Being close to the town of Seneca is a nice advantage as it provides a small-town feel, with lots of Southern hospitality, but also has all the modern conveniences including two grocery stores, a Super Wal-Mart, lots of great restaurants, a movie theater and a bowling alley. A short way further and you are in the college town of Clemson. We especially enjoy providing accommodations for the fanatic Clemson Tiger football alumni who gather every Fall at our home for Clemson homecoming weekends. There is no lack of things to do between the Lake, the towns, the many state parks, hiking trails, tennis, golf and the list goes on and on.

You’ll want to come back
This was our 3rd year here. The owners take care of the property and add upgrades each year. We enjoy Kayaking on a sunny fall day and the kitchen has everything we need to cook for a large group. Owner is very responsive if there is a maintenance issue.
Wonderful house for a Clemson game
We were a group of 9 people visiting our daughter at Clemson and taking in the football game. Mike’s home was an excellent option with all of the bedrooms, bathrooms and amenities that everyone found so convenient. Being all football nuts, we especially found the home theater such a great option to watch the Sunday NFL games. We definitely will be staying again and hopefully during better weather so we can rent one of Mike’s tri-toon boats for a day on the lake.
The Grandis Getaway
Fun time on Lake Keowee! Had a mini family reunion and also went to the Clemson Game. Wonderful house on a beautiful lake! Had a terrific weekend!
We are a small group of BC track Alumni who have been coming to Lake Keowee for the last 12 years to enjoy a long weekend during the bi-annual BC-Clemson football game! We have had some nice houses but this one might have been the best one we have been to. Everything was exactly as advertised and was very clean with plenty to do. We enjoyed the game room in basement as well as the some outdoor activities (fire pit, horseshoes, fishing). While we enjoy seeing different houses every other year, we will strongly consider coming back here in 2 years. Thanks Mike for letting us enjoy your wonderful home!!
Our third stay at this property
We love this place! It was our first VRBO experience and the others have paled in comparison. It's clean, well-maintained, has a well-appointed kitchen, lots of sleeping options, a good location, a wonderful screened-in porch, and there's lots of entertaining things available (pool table, foosball, pinball, P/C with internet access, wireless access, movie theater, board games, horseshoes, kayaks, etc).
It deserves the five-star rating.
Perfect for a family gathering!
Property had a lot of activities for everyone! We enjoyed playing pin ball and watching football and baseball on the large screen TV in the Theatre room. Bedrooms were large. Kitchen was stocked with plenty of cook ware. They even had coolers for us to use. We will would definitely rent this house again!
