Owning a lake or mountain home is something most people dream of, so why not live where sweeping mountain vistas meet the therapeutic serenity of lake living? The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards is a community that offers just that and enhances your living experience by the water. 

In this post, we discover more about this community and all of the exclusive amenities that make living at The Cliffs such an extraordinary place to call home. 

The Lake Region

At The Cliffs, we know that few things are better than living by the water –– so much so, that we designed an entire region along the shores of the magnificent Lake Keowee. This lake boasts more than 300 miles of shoreline and is home to diverse wildlife and native flora, adding to the natural beauty of the area.

Located in Upstate South Carolina, The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards is one of three communities in The Lake Region. It is just a 5-minute boat ride to The Cliffs at Keowee Falls and 15 minutes to The Cliffs at Keowee Springs. This region is also well connected to several charming mountain towns scattered throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains, including Clemson and Greenville

Given the temperate climate of the region, it is possible to spend time on the lake from early March into late October –– opening the door to a number of thrilling water sports throughout the year. Our Outdoor Pursuits program at The Cliffs can help you embrace lake living to the fullest. From paddleboarding to jet skiing, swimming and boating, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on the water! Learn more about our Watersports Program here.

Our full-service marina is located at The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards, facilitating the experience of boat ownership. The Marina has a fuel dock, boat storage, ship store, and launch area. In addition, you can rent water sports equipment including wakeboards, water skis, jet skis –– and even spacious pontoon boats, perfect for your lake-day adventure with family and friends.

The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards Golf Course

The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyard golf course was designed to enrich the golfing experience –– and with eight holes right on the water’s edge, it’s no surprise the course was named among the “Best in the State” by Golf Digest. 

As players make their way through tree-lined fairways and quiet coves, they can appreciate panoramic vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains and vineyards of native muscadine grapes that set the backdrop for a magnificent round of golf. Designed by one of the greatest golf architects in the game, Tom Fazio, this course has one of the most beautiful holes he’s designed in the Carolinas –– the signature 17th hole, which dramatically plunges into the lake, creating a picturesque playing experience unlike any other.    

For avid golfers looking to improve their game, The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards provides access to state-of-the-art practice facilities, set privately from the course.
