Wow, what a perfect paradise! We live in Marietta and decided to take a long weekend before the kids head back to college. This was exactly what we were looking for! Clean, bright and plenty to do...the ultimate if you want privacy, a beautiful lakefront location and all the amenities, then this is the place for you. Wendy was great to work with and the booking was a breeze. We loved the house, it's very open with amazing views of the water from both decks and the living room. The living room is very roomy with large vaulted ceilings and comfy furniture. We had great meals that we cooked on one of two grills each night. There is also a fire pit right down by the water which we used for nighttime schmoores by the water. The deep-water dock is brand new and came with a canoe and a paddleboat! When we weren't floating, we were paddling in one of the two boats. My husband is still talking about the fishing since he caught 5 fish the first day from right off the dock. Sleeping arrangements were perfect for the 6 of us and Wendy has covered all the bases with really cute furnishings. The bedrooms are spread-out with one on each floor so it really feels private. I would say it is ideal for 3 couples and each get their own full bath. We played games at night and there was a great selection to choose including Ping-Pong and darts in the party room downstairs. Mornings were picture perfect ...drinking coffee on the deck and looking out at the water while we ate breakfast at the large table on the patio. We rented a boat next door at the marina (I would highly recommend this) and spent one day exploring the lake. You can't beat the convenience of the location so close to the marina! We all decided this was a fantastic get-away and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property, especially if you live in the ATL area since the drive is a breeze...about an hour and a half. Also, there are grocery stores and convenience stops near-bye so no worries if you want to wait until you get there to shop for groceries, etc. All in all, 5 stars or thumbs up from this group of happy, relaxed travelers! Keep up the great work Wendy and we will be back soon!

Wonderful TimeGuest comment entered by owner
Wendy, We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect! We enjoyed the ping pong table, the dock, the canoe, and of course, the wonderful fishing! My husband caught the most bass he's ever caught in Lake Hartwell right off your dock. Also caught some catfish & bream. The rain didn't slow him down at all ! We look forward to coming back soon.

Great Family Getaway!
Great Family Getaway!
My family had a great time on a weekend retreat to this house! Everything was exactly as the owner described it. It is perfect for families that like to fish, boat, swim, or just hang out and have a good time! The location was great...right on the interstate and extremely close to the marina. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!

Wendy, I was cleaning up my office and ran across our lease document and this reminded me that I never touched base with you after we left the cottage. I hope that you found everything in order after we left. We really enjoyed our time there and it worked out very well for us. We did not do anything extravagant…just had a fire 2 nights and played some ping pong. We threw a line in the water one afternoon, but no luck. I was able to fulfill my responsibilities for work and not be away from the family so that was a great advantage. So thanks again. Regards, Dan

Lake HartwellGuest comment entered by owner
Thank you so much for a great visit! We had a great girl's weekend and loved your house. It rained all day saturday (even though the forecast was sunny and 76) We planned on bringing the paddle boat down to the water, so we tilted it up to drain the water out of it, but I realized last night that we forgot to lay it back down. We hope to visit again next year at this time for our annual girls weekend getaway! Katie Fitness Expert | Radio Host | Personal Trainer | Health & Wellness Educator

Room for all!
Room for all!
What a great place to spend time with family! We were able to spend the days on the dock and in the water with our kayaks and the on-site pedal boat. We spent the evenings playing ping-pong, darts, and listening to the sounds of nature. The house was clean, well equipped, and was just as described. The owner was extremely helpful and kind. The only thing that would have made this experience better was having more time to spend there!

Also, we are painting the entire interior, exterior, deck, dock, swing and rocking chair starting today! There will also be additional furnishings inside as well!

We enjoyed our stay at this house very much. It was exactely as described. It was very clean, and very well stocked with nice towels and linens. The kitchen was clean, modern and had everything we needed. All the extras were very nice..ping pong, organ, paddleboat, etc.... The lake is clear, calm and beautiful. The marina was only about 5 minutes away and very nice. We will definitely rent this house again.
