While all Lakeside Lodge owners are considered part of our Clemson Family, there are many different reasons why they chose to own a condo at Lakeside Lodge. It’s true that a vast majority have some sort of tie to Clemson University, but we also have a few that have never stepped foot on campus. Below are just six of the different types of owners you’ll find at Lakeside Lodge. Some fall into just one category while many others are a combination of all six!
Many of our owners attended Clemson University, and it’s safe to say that most would love to relive that time and have found that just being at Lakeside Lodge is a good enough substitute. Several owners choose to buy a place in town because they have had Clemson alumni in their family for generations and hope that legacy will continue. Some met their spouses while attending Clemson, and many made lifelong friends that love to get together to reminisce around the fire pit. For all, Clemson holds a very special place in their hearts, and Lakeside Lodge has become their place to reconnect.
Clemson Sports Fan
We have several owners who never went to school at Clemson University but are some of the biggest Tiger sports fans that we know. And it’s not just football. Quite a few owners come into town for baseball, softball, rowing, and men and women’s basketball and soccer as well. Normally that would mean booking a lot of hotel nights, but now they have a guaranteed place to stay in the comfort of their own condo.
Parent of a Clemson Student
Over four or five years, parents can end up visiting their kids at college several times a year, and owning a condo at Lakeside Lodge means they can make their child a home-cooked meal and do their laundry while visiting. Or not, but at least it’s an option! Regardless, visiting is definitely a better experience and more like home when the family can relax and spend time together in a spacious condo.
Hassle-Free Vacation Homeowner
Ties to Clemson or not, all of our owners will say the best reason to own at Lakeside Lodge over other real estate options in the area is how easy it is. With the amenities of a resort combined with the 24-hour on-site staff, the only thing owners have to do is show up, unpack and start relaxing. You’ll never spend time at your vacation property cleaning bathrooms, washing linens, doing yard work, or fixing anything. You don’t even have to cook during your stay with Traditions on the Lake restaurant right in the lobby! Plus the beautiful pool and hot tub, fire pit, and 24/7 gym give you amenities to enjoy year-round.
We do have a couple of owners who have been looking for the perfect lakefront property but either couldn’t find what they wanted or were overwhelmed with the thought of trying to maintain a second house at the lake. Lakeside Lodge’s hassle-free ownership gives you a lake house on demand! Plus, with Clemson Marina just a few minutes away, storing your boat or joining the Freedom Boat Club to get access to their fleet of boats whenever you want makes a day on the lake super easy and fun. Whether you enjoy being lakeside or on the water, owning a condo at Lakeside Lodge gives you the best of both worlds.
Some of our owners have never stayed a single night in their condo and never plan to. They are investor-only owners who are 100 percent in the on-site hotel management rental program, so their unit is available as part of the hotel inventory at any given time, and it generates revenue for the owner.
But a majority of our owners are a part of the rental program when they are not personally staying in their condo. It’s the best of both worlds in that they get to decide when they want to be at Lakeside Lodge and have the potential to generate revenue when they are not there. Even some of our biggest Clemson football fan owners willingly give up their condo for those high-demand home game weekends for the great revenue.
There are many reasons why Lakeside Lodge is the best place to own in Clemson. Whatever your reason, we’re ready to help you find the perfect condo for your family. Reach out to our sales team today to find out more.
