Discover Life in the Lake Region at The Cliffs

If you dream of peaceful days spent making memories by the lake, then you’ve come to the right place. At The Cliffs, we know that life is always better on the water. Which is why we designed a collection of exclusive communities surrounded by the panoramic views of Lake Keowee. 

Discover The Lake Region at The Cliffs and take a closer look at everything this corner of the Carolinas has to offer. 

The Lake Region

Located in Upstate South Carolina, homes within The Lake Region at The Cliffs are nestled away on the sandy beaches of Lake Keowee. This charming lake offers 300 miles of pristine shoreline, with views of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains around every bend. The region’s mild climate also makes it possible to enjoy your lakefront home throughout the entire year.

With cities like Clemson, Asheville, and Greenville about an hour’s drive away, The Lake Region is well connected to the other communities at The Cliffs. Not to mention, the handful of charming mountain towns you can find along the way.

Living on the Lake

When you live by the lake, the water just calls your name. That’s why at The Cliffs we offer a variety of water activities members can enjoy right on Lake Keowee. 

Private Marina

Our full-service marina offers a place for members to dock and fuel their boats for a day of fun on the water. Additionally, picnic pontoons, speed boats, and jet skis are available for rent, allowing you to make the most of your relaxing afternoon on the lake.   

The Beach Club

The Beach Club is the perfect spot for the kids to make a splash on the waterslides and pools all day long. Nearby, our Surf Shop, located right on the beach, is ideal for activities like paddleboarding and kayaking.
