The Reserve at Lake Keowee Featured on the Cover of ideal-LIVING Magazine’s “Best of the Best” Issue and Awarded “Best Lake Views”

Magazine’s Annual Awards Honor Top Towns and Residential Communities across the U.S.

In its Summer 2017 edition, ideal-LIVING magazine featured The Reserve at Lake Keowee on the cover and honored the community for “Best Lake Views” among its second annual “Best of the Best” award winners. Nominations were submitted, and the ideal-LIVING editorial committee researched and chose those communities/developments they felt best represented the spirit of each category.

“We feel honored to be recognized among the top communities in the country for the ambiance and amenities we offer our members,” said David Fleming, General Manager of The Reserve at Lake Keowee. “The Reserve’s 30 miles of shoreline on Lake Keowee allow the picturesque lake views we have been recognized for over the years, and that our members and their guests have come to regard as a hallmark of the beauty of this special place.”

“Given the very positive response last year to our first ‘Best of the Best‘ feature, we refined our selection process and created some new categories that we think better reflect the interests of our readers,” said Kelly Godbey, ideal-LIVING Editor and Associate Publisher. “The goal will always be to help retirees and families choose the place that’s ‘The Best‘ for them. ‘The Best of the Best’ honorees for 2017 are organized into three broad groups—Destination, Life and Home— with winners named in a total of 24 categories.

Past awards and honors for The Reserve at Lake Keowee have included the community’s receiving multiple Bliss Awards – including “Best Lake Community” – from Real Estate Scorecard from 2012 to 2016, “Best of the Upstate” by readers of The Greenville News, America’s Top 100 Golf Communities from Travel + Leisure Golf and Top 10 Communities to Watch by Golf Magazine.
