Saluda

This is an original Lake Summit house with wormy-chestnut walls, modern bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, screen porch overlooking the lake, lovely stone terrace behind the house, a fabulous boat house with fabulous entertaining room above the boathouse.

Parking is either above or below the house. From above, you enter the large living room with beamed cathedral ceiling and fireplace. Through the two windows you look out onto the screened porch which overlooks the lake. To the right is the large kitchen which often becomes the central gathering place of the house. It shares the chimney with the living room and has had many a cozy fire. The kitchen is well equipped. We eat at the lazy susan table built by the original builder for the dining room which connects the porch and the kitchen.

Back to the front door, going left, is a hall. Off of the hall on the left is a large bedroom overlooking the terrace. It can accommodate a blow-up mattress, if needed. It has a Kong bed, an en-suite bath with tub and shower and a laundry chute. At the end of the hall is a bath with shower and a separate bedroom with king bed, a sink and two lovely windows overlooking the lake and the side garden.

At the beginning of the hall on the right is the original master bedroom with an antique double bed and large bathroom with tub. This room opens onto the screen porch. (The screen porch is between this bedroom and the dining room).

From the front porch there are steps leading to the downstairs very large bedroom with Italian tile and a king bed. There is plenty of space for a queen size blow up mattress if needed as well. There is also a Day bed with trundle bed that has a full size twin bed mattress.

There are two bathrooms, one with a claw-foot tub and a dressing table, the other with tub and shower. We converted the two closets into a tiny room for child size bunk beds that are very comfortable and have on occasion even been used by adults. The final room downstairs is a dedicated laundry room that receives clothes from the laundry chute above.

Continuing down the steps is a charming pathway of stones and steps to the South Lake Summit Road and across the road is the fabulous waterfront area. The waterfront consists of a large double boat house with great room above that has a large 'kitchen' with wooden counters and cabinets, a stove and ice-maker, toaster, blender, plastic dishes, a refrigerator. It is not a real kitchen because there is no plumbing on the lake but we have cooked many a meal here, either on the grill or on the stove. We just pack up our plastic dishes and take them to the house.

Part of this outdoor room is in the sun and part is shaded and there are two large tables for eating, rocking chairs and lots of space for gathering. There is even a place to jump from here into the lake. Back on the water there is a stone terrace with wooden steps leading into the water and a wooden dock with diving board. The children (and adults) spend the day jumping into the water, skiing, playing, sunning, face-painting, eating pop-scicles. The lake is safe. Our house is particularly well situated in a cove that is both protected from other boats but open to the fun of lake activity.

Lake Summit is a clean refreshing mountain lake that was built by Duke Power Company in the 1920’s to provide power for the textile mills in Spartanburg, SC. It is fed by the Green River which is aptly named and gives a green refreshing color to the lake water. It is a treasured spot where homes are passed down from generation to generation. Our family bought this property in the 1950’s and have been blessed to enjoy it ever since. We are not able to spend all summer at the lake as we did as children and so now are offering this special house to others. The lake is home to Camp Mondamin, Camp Greystone and Green Cove Camp.

The lake is 27 miles from the Tryon International Equestrian Center, a splendid riding compound that rivals anything in the country. We are at a higher elevation and so enjoy a 10 degree cooler temperature.

My year-long planned vaca week at Edisto was cut short two hours after arriving due to mandatory evacuation for Dorian. We found this rental and knew this needed to be our plan B. Both Jacquelin and Jamie made this everything we could hope for! The house, surroundings, lake and the boat house were like a dream come true! Now that I’ve discovered this gem, I will be back as our plan A.
