Lake Keowee Retirement

Simply the Best.  The best place to live, the best people to share it with and the best cost of living. We like to think that Seneca, SC offers the best of all these things and more. A small yet active town of roughly 8,000 residents Seneca is nestled in the upstate of South Carolina along the foothills of the blue ridge mountains and the shores of the pristine 18,500 acre Lake Keowee.

With a resurging arts and historic district Seneca offers a variety of shops, restaurants and civic groups and activities. Also, the cities’ central location lends makes it easy to access nearby cities such as…

Clemson- This small college town offers the cultural events through the University you would see in major cities such as art shows, drama and music at the Brooks Center for performing arts as well as major sporting events such as football, basketball and baseball. Only 10 miles away across Lake Hartwell Clemson is a perfect place for an lunch or a stroll around campus. Clemson University ranked one of the top public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report and the Princeton Review.

Greenville – Only 38 miles away Greenville is one of South Carolinas major metro areas with all the things you would find in places such as Atlanta. With the Peace Center for performing arts which offers Broadway productions and top name entertainment to the minor league baseball and hockey teams Greenville has a little bit of everything. Also, it has a newly renovated International airport for easy access to air travel from Seneca.

Other major cities nearby are Atlanta, GA (125 miles) and Charlotte, NC (140 miles).

As you can see Seneca is a short drive to many different cities for activities yet the surrounding area of Seneca is a Natural wonder. The calm, clear waters of Lake Keowee with the reflection of the Blue Ridge mountains offers recreation such as sailing, boating, skiing, swimming, canoeing, etc. The surrounding national forest, state, county and city parks offer picnic areas, hiking trails and nature walks. The upstate has over 150 marked waterfalls some with cascades over 200 feet such as Whitewater Falls located at Lake Jocassee.

With typically lower home cost, property taxes and cost of living Seneca offers potential residents many advantages and cost savings for their retirement dollars.

What makes Seneca such a great place as well is the variety of home offerings with several golf course communities and lake front communities there is a place that anyone can call home. If none of the existing houses fulfill your dreams there are numerous building lots available.

Some of the Golf Course communities:

Cross Creek Plantation is a lush 500-acre private country club community featuring the only golf course in Seneca. And, it's not just any course, but rather one designed by nationally renowned golf course architect P.D. Dye. Residential homes are available in a variety of settings.

Cliffs at Keowee is comprised of three private-gated communities on Lake Keowee. The Cliffs are known for their world class amenities from world class golf courses, equestrian center, wellness center, numerous restaurants and a marina.
