About Tookie Nemchak

Jim and I are transplants from Colorado. He grew up in Ohio and I was a military brat! After decades in Colorado, we were ready for warmer climates but still wanted space to hike and play. We collect vintage cars and have a 1956 full sized fire engine! We have become HUGE Clemson fans since moving here.

Tookie Nemchak purchased this house in 2016

Why Tookie Nemchak chose Seneca

Jim and I came here for a winter as snow birds and simply fell in love with the area. We went back to Colorado but the Upstate was calling us back. So, we looked for several months and fell in love with this grand home.

What makes this house unique

Once we drove up the long winding brick driveway, we were immediately drawn in by the privacy and amazing landscape. 5.5 acres of plush mature landscape surrounds the home and pool. The Hacienda style was enchanting and we pledged to keep the house true to its heritage. This beautiful home has an interesting history that is the stuff that movies were made from. We've documented it and our guests get to read it once here. The home is on the famed Roller Coaster Road that Clemson students have known for generations!

Fantastic house for Clemson gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our daughter's Clemson graduation weekend. We had room to gather with her friends and their families for meals, we hung out by the pool and enjoyed the great proximity to the Clemson campus. We would highly recommend this spot for football weekends, the Ring Ceremony, graduation stays, etc. It's very quiet and very private.

Excellent stay in Clemson

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful spacious home for our stay during Clemson's Homecoming weekend. Plenty of room in the house for us and made good use of the pool table and the 'tavern', as well as the family room. A little too wet and chilly for the outdoor pool unfortunately. My boys enjoyed the front yard throwing the football around.

Tookie is a great host. The house was clean and comfortable. Located across the lake you have a feeling of remoteness but within minutes you can access one of the 3 bridges/routes to get across to Clemson. Having those options is nice to avoidor plan around gameday traffic if needed.

Although near the small airport, don't give it a second thought with regards to noise or anything.

Overall a great stay!
