In the land of waterfalls located at the Cherokee Foothills, there is a quaint mountain cottage nestled in the Jocassee Wilderness. Devil’s Fork State Park is 0.7 mile from the doorstep. The front porch has 2 rockers and a swing where deer can be seen walking through property. The back of the house has a screened and open air porch to relax, romance, and create family memories for a lifetime. The secluded home has outstanding views of the unspoiled wilderness for all seasons. The only lights seen at night are the stars and the sounds of crickets and tree frogs fill the air. An upstate parks pass is provided for admittance to various picnic pavilions, multiple boat ramps with sufficient parking for boats of all sizes to include Table Rock, Oconee State Park, etc. Breath taking Lake Jocassee is less than 1 mile, great for boating, tubing and skiing. Numerous islands accessed by water. There are quiet nearby paths for walking, biking, hiking or meandering. The endless miles of wilderness facilitate hunting and fishing for the outdoorsman.

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.

Very nice home near Jocasse

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean home with all the things we needed inside. Owner even left us fresh flowers! Nice porches to sit on and enjoy fall wooded backyard with a cup of coffee or a book. Only 35 minutes from Clemson so very close for late night games! Just 1 mile from Jocasse boat landing and owners left us a park pass for access!

Be prepared to operate an Apple TV and a login for Netflix, etc No antenna, cable or dish. Otherwise we fully enjoyed our visit. Owners were very accessible and helpful! We would visit again if need arose.

Very nice home with all of the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home. It was very clean and comfortable. The owner was very kind and great to deal with. The location is perfect if you want to enjoy the state parks or waterfalls, or other attractions in the area. The home is in a very private, quiet, peaceful location.

Great home & location

  • 5 of 5

My family & I loved this home. It was so clean & provided plenty of room for the 6 of us. Michelle made it extra special by welcoming us with a plaque at the door with our name, fresh flowers throughout & replied to my inquires very quickly. The home is close to Lake Jocassee which was convenient. We also ventured into parts of North Carolina. Can't say enough good things. We will be back.
