world beyond
the gates


Those that choose to make The Reserve at Lake Keowee home do so because they value their privacy as much as they value being connected to the world around them.

Getting away from it all doesn’t mean moving far away from everything. Members here appreciate the seclusion that a private, gated lake and golf community affords them, but often want to remain close to work or to family and friends outside of The Reserve.

Our community is situated alongside Lake Keowee with multiple gated entrances that connect to direct routes of some of the Southeast’s best cities and towns. Many of our Members travel for work or recreation and appreciate the convenience of living in a place that feels remote and secluded while inside the gates, but close to it all once outside the gates. Whether building or buying your primary home or second home here, you’ll find The Reserve to be everything you had hoped–and then some. Below you will discover some of the cities and towns that are favorites among our Members. We invite you to explore the world around The Reserve. It will make coming home here so much more incredible.
