Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals in Anderson, South Carolina - Updated 2021

airbnb Anderson SC

Anderson follows the tradition of naming cities after Revolutionary War heroes and takes after General Robert Anderson’s name. It is the first city in the south to have an unlimited supply of electricity, which is how it received its “Electric City” nickname. Downtown Anderson has plenty of historical landmarks, such as the Old Anderson County Courthouse, First Baptist Church of Anderson and the Confederate Monument, which is in front of the existing county courthouse. But it is its surrounding natural attractions that are popular among visitors. These include the peaceful Sadlers Creek State Park and the popular Lake Hartwell. The latter ranks among the largest in South Carolina. Check out our list of the top ten Airbnb vacation rentals in Anderson, South Carolina!

1. Two-bedroom house in quiet neighborhood (from USD 79)

4. Treehouse atop a beech tree

For some people, this is the home of their childhood dreams. This thoughtfully designed treehouse sits atop a beech tree, overlooking the beautiful Lake Hartwell. It has a queen bed protected by mosquito netting and comes with extra blankets for cold winter nights. There is a hammock on the porch and even a wooden bridge that leads to the main house, where breakfast is served.
