Lake-front retreat w/ unbelievable sunsets, swimming & kayaking, in area of million dollar homes, near Clemson Univ, 2 hrs from Atlanta. Private park-like setting for a couple's getaway. Updated one bedroom small cottage w/ livingRm, kitchen, bath, laundry, AC/heat.

The entire property is included w/ your cottage rental; 1.1 acres & 800 ft of lake shoreline, a dock, a pier, a sunset deck, a grilling pavilion. It's a private lake experience; nothing really compares, includes kayaks & SUPs.

The space
Holiday Haus - A small cottage with everything you need for a relaxing lake getaway; ideal for guests who appreciate an active watersports lifestyle that is safe, healthy, family friendly, and environmentally conscious.

1970-era basic cottage, updated again in 2020 with fresh paint, flooring, furniture and HVAC. Memory foam mattress in the bedroom for a comfortable night’s rest; living-room with sofa-bed, recliner chair and Flat screen TV with HD antenna plus Netflix. Very Private - interaction with neighbors is minimal as the landscaping and spacing between properties provides a large buffer. Turn off your phone and reset your life at Pine Island Point!

Over time we have realized that our cottage has its limitations - it is not for everyone. It is however, ideal for a couple's retreat - one couple getting away, relaxing and focusing on each other. Two younger children are easily accommodated by sofa-bed, however, it becomes too crowded with teenagers. So, while the amenities could accommodate lots of people, the cottage is best for one or two adults, or a couple with a young child, or 2 people and a small dog (1).

It is a truly a small cottage - you won't be comfortable if you attempt to bring too many people! Two adults & 2 small children & 1 non-shedding canine pet under 25 lbs is the max - sorry no water-dog breeds, cats or other animals. Please observe these rules.

If you need clarification - by all means message me - but my flexibility is very limited as 50% of my guests do not have or like pets.

Young children are free so if you are a couple with little children that is ideal for Pine Island Point, conversely group events just don't work well for us - we will not approve any group activities.

This is a "Lake-Experience" Destination, with a 270 degree view of the water; almost any direction you look there is water! Including 800 feet of shoreline and over an acre of lawn to enjoy. This is not a residential or in-town neighborhood with just a sliver of lake frontage - this is Lake Keowee the way it used to be... the best you can imagine - retro!

If your focus is on the outdoors, then this is the place for you - this property is all about enjoying Lake Keowee. There is a grilling pavilion with a propane grill & wood pellet smoker, a social pavilion with seating, tables and a fire pit, there is a sunset deck, a fishing pier, a boat/swimming dock, and a beach to launch your kayak.

There is plenty of space to spread your wings, but remember we don't accommodate groups or events and parking is limited. We absolutely will not accept boats, trailers or RVs. While there are lots of out-door amenities for you to enjoy, we do not offer this property for you to host an event.

Exception: If you are a couple w/ family or friends in the area you can certainly have them over for day time lake activities, a BBQ, a swim, etc. but only with prior approval and all vehicles must fit in our small drive way (5-6 cars max). This kind of activity needs to be outlined for me in advance and there may be a clean-up fee or deposit required if approved.

Other things to note: No long term rentals available - this is a weekend get-a-way destination. 3-day stays are ideal... 7-day max! No boats, No RVs, No group events. No cats and no dogs over 25 pounds - no shedding or water dog breeds as we cannot accommodate and maintain the cottage to a high standard when pet hair is dispersed throughout or rover has sprinkled water throughout the cottage. Just Can't.

I say all of the above because I want to be realistic and create the right expectations on your part. I have found that by over emphasizing this information & description, I am able to match up correctly with guest expectations. Plus equipped with this information you can better pick the Airbnb property that suits your plans!

Pine Island Point is a really fun place for the right guests and that is typically an individual, a couple or a small family wanting to relax at the lake.

This is an ideal retreat for the "Kale & Kayaker" type! It's great for swimming, kayaking, SUPs, meditation, reading, writing, recovery, and relaxing. Its ideal for guests that want to spend time outdoors, lawn games, grilling, sun-bathing, swimming, fishing, exercising, yoga, meditating -- these are all activities that will work well at Pine Island Point. And there is No-Better Sunset on Lake Keowee - so grab your glass of wine and meet on the deck to watch the sun go down!

Important Things to Note:

If you are looking for indoor amenities, luxury accommodations or a boating venue this is not the property for you. This is a basic one-bedroom, one-bath cottage - a Lake Retreat and a Tiny-House Experience all in one!

Given it is a 1970-era cottage you should note that the ceilings are lower than modern houses and the hallway is narrow. Tall people or plus-sized guests might find the cottage a little uncomfortable. This is direct feed back from guests who have suggested that I make this point here in the description - "Tiny House mean tighter fit"

Hence why we restrict the number of guests and the size of the pets.

Where you’ll be

Six Mile, South Carolina, United States

Pine Island Point is an unrestricted area on the best part Lake Keowee near the exclusive Cliffs of Keowee Springs and the Reserve Golf Club. PIP is an awesome peninsula with water everywhere you look. A private road leads to breathtaking lake vistas - over 800 ft. of shoreline for your private enjoyment.

This is a secure area that offers hard to find flat landscape for easy strolling around the property - every inch is easily accessible by foot and is large enough to consider it exercise to see the entire property. You are not on a steep hillside nor are you crowded into a residential area - this is the real lake experience - very retro and all natural – Park-Like!

Fenced and Gated property.

Local business owner PowerSports & Marine Dealer Married since 1983 - 2 adult kids Favorite times of the day: I love coffee in the morning at the lake ... but I also like an evening glass of wine enjoying the lake sunset! Non political - non social activism - liberal in some ways conservative in others. Enjoy life - makes others feel good. Hobbies include fitness, cars, motorcycles, jetskis good food & conversation. Our spot on the lake is very special and its fun for us to share it with others - glad to have you come visit! I think you will agree it is a pretty rare and unique experience. I have owned multiple properties on this peninsula for over 18 years including residing there full time for over five years. As a result I know all my neighbors well - this is a great place to relax - come stay and enjoy Lake Keowee. Airbnb philosophy: We do Airbnb for the fun of it - both as a host and traveler! As long as we continue to have nice interesting people as our guests we'll continue to participate in Airbnb - hope you understand. We want your experience to be so good you feel fortunate to have discovered it and want to come back!
