About the property

Historic 2-story vacation house rental near Lakes Russell and Thurmond.

This is "Southern Charm" at its finest! A prominent 100+ year old two-story home with old southern charm owned and maintained by the mill for many years, housing plant managers and the like throughout the last century, now privately owned and located in Calhoun Falls, South Carolina. Leisure sitting can be enjoyed on the wrap-around front porch. Downstairs includes 5 rooms, of which two are being used as bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths (1/2 bath has washer & dryer available), a large eat-in kitchen fully furnished, including microwave, dishwasher, coffee pot, etc, formal dining room, & living room.

The house has a fenced in yard and ample parking for boats with an entrance gate off Lake Russell Blvd./Highway 72. It is beautifully landscaped in spring and summer months.

The house is conveniently located less than a mile from the pristine Russell Lake, and Calhoun Falls State Park. The Park contains two campgrounds, a swimming area with sandy beach, tennis courts, hiking trails, and picnic areas. The campground stays booked nearly year round. Four more state parks in GA and SC are less than 40 min. away offering award-winning championship golf courses.

This home features large rooms with crown moldings and architectural design that brings back the feelings of prestigious southern living. It provides an atmosphere of relaxation and isolation as it is located in a small southern mill town with beautiful Lake Russell in its town limits. Lake Russell is a Corps of Engineers Lake that retains 100% of naturalness and wildlife native to the area on its shores. Boat ramps in the states of Georgia and South Carolina on Lakes Thurmond and Russell are accessible in minutes.
