Backwater Landing on Lake Keowee - Life is better at the cottage

Communities

Life is better at the cottage!

Backwater Landing is a unique, private community on Lake Keowee in Oconee County, South Carolina.  It is unique because it is made up mostly of cottages that are approximately 1000-1200 square feet as compared to many of the other subdivisions on Lake Keowee that require a minimum of 1800 - 2000 of heated and cooled living space on the main level.  So, these Backwater Landing cottages are perfect for weekend getaways and/or for compact every day living areas.

This gated and secluded community sits less than five miles from the amenities of Seneca, SC (restaurants, grocery stores, medical facilities) yet feels like it's tucked away in a wooded setting.

The Farmhouse Gallery by Vivian Edwards

Oconee County Businesses

The art of Vivian Edwards and The Farmhouse Gallery has moved just a couple of doors down the street to 124 E Main Street (#A & #B) in Walhalla, South Carolina

The Farmhouse Gallery Vivian Edwards

 When you walk in the door, you can still smell the earthy fragrances from the former vendor, Thistle Ridge Soap (now located in Abington, Virginia). 

 The Farmhouse Gallery Vivian Edwards

Vivian loves to bring the outdoors inside and that’s exactly what she did in her new location.  You’ll find a covered front porch with a porch swing on display.  Hear the sounds of running water and see rocks and green plants surrounding a small indoor pond.  A wisteria tree, potted ferns and other plants help display Vivian’s artwork and maintain the woodsy feel of the stor...

Station Cove Falls Oconee County South Carolina

Communities

Station Cove Falls Oconee County South CarolinaBefore the weather started to get too hot for this Canadian girl, my husband Jason and I took a Sunday walk on the half mile nature trail at Station Cove Falls in Walhalla, SC. 

It is a well-groomed path through lush green vegetation of the Appalachian forests all the way to the 60 foot waterfalls.  Several families were walking the trails, playing in the creek below the falls, and some even climbed to the top of the falls and shouted down to us lesser thrill seekers below. Station Cove Falls Oconee County South Carolina

The shade of the trees helped protect us from the sun and the spray off the falls kept our skin cool for the hike back out.  This is considered an easy trail and would be great for a walk with young children.

Do you own a strange pet? We have a squirrel!

Just Thoughts

Do you own a strange pet?  We have a squirrel!

Do you own a strange pet?  My husband Jason has a pet squirrel.  We believe Henry VIII was born circa 2002.  Jason and his father had been putting a new roof on a garage and when they pulled up the old tin, a nest of squirrels took off running in all directions, but Henry didn't get away.  My husband is not good with dates but he had this pet long before I met him in 2004.  If there's a section in the Guinness Book of World Records for oldest live squirrel, this one probably belongs in it.

Pet Squirrel

Henry VIII is only Jason's second pet squirrel but since it had been eight years since he found his first one, he thought Henry would be an eighth gene...
