Lake Living on Keowee at The Reserve

The Reserve at Lake Keowee
Published on July 6, 2016

Retirement can be the best time of our life. With more free time and less stress in our lives, this equals pure bliss. For many, lake living surrounded by breathtaking mountains makes for the perfect combination for retirement living. There are only a handful of places that have both.  Lake Keowee is one of the first places that comes to mind. Surrounded by beautiful small towns, friendly people and stunning state parks, we believe The Reserve at Lake Keowee has all of the ingredients needed for ideal retirement living.

I – Incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as the backdrop over the lake

D- Dinners and Social Events every month

E  - Education and entertainment within the gates

A - Sports including golf, fitness, tennis, boating and pickleball

L – Location – close proximity to Clemson and chic-Greenville

What a mix! The Reserve is home to some of the best Lake Keowee property. Peninsular Ridge is the newest neighborhood with estate-size homesites with elevated lake and mountain views, and convenient access to Clemson University just 20 minutes away. 

Each neighborhood at The Reserve offers unique features and designs. Styles of homes range from custom-built lakefront properties to cottage style living, garden homes and more. Each comes with a long list of amenities such as roomy master suites, private porches, custom cabinets, fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. The English architecture is stunning and most of the homes have views of the lake or the Nicklaus designed golf course. Homes at The Reserve begin just under $600k and homesites can be found in the low $200k’s.

At retirement, we anticipate having the freedom to do more of what we want and we want fun choices. That’s a way of life at The Reserve at Lake Keowee, near one of the best small towns to retire, the college town of Clemson.

With hundreds of miles of shoreline, it’s easy to find a great location for fishing or swimming. A jet ski, boat or standup paddle boards, there’s so many water toys to choose from and enjoy in the warm emerald lake. Prime Lake Keowee property is near cascading waterfalls and secluded islands in the middle of the lake. And to top it all off, residents at The Reserve can finish off the day watching the sun set over the mountains on the lake. 

It’s easy to stay physically active when you live on a lake because you’ll want to be outside as much as possible. For many of The Reserve’s retirees, life is more than leisure. Having more free time gives residents an opportunity to experience and learn about new things such as art, music or volunteer. The Reserve at Lake Keowee has raised the bar for culture enrichment in master planned communities by hosting world class ‘Artist in Residence’ programs through The Community Foundation.

Designed as a way to enhance lifelong learning and provide club members on-site lectures, art exhibits and musical performances, the “Artist in Residence” program is part of what makes The Reserve a great place to live. The organization also participates in environmental stewardship, outreach and philanthropy. Last year, the Foundation raised $110,000 in charitable giving. Their efforts are so impressive, they won our 2016 Bliss Award for Best Community Spirit of the Year

Spirited folks they are. The collegiate spirt of Clemson is ever so present at The Reserve too. Only 30 minutes from the entrance, Clemson is a charming college town which offers the kind of cultural events you would see in major cities such as art shows, plays and musical performances. It is also home to major sporting events including football, basketball and baseball. Clemson is another place to take up a life learning class, or catching a college game. Clemson University ranked one of the top public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report and the Princeton Review. As you get to know the town more, you’ll see why Boomers rate it one of the best small towns to retire to in the Carolinas.
