Property description

Quiet cove, wooded lot, great lakefront location...take a break from the city and enjoy a country weekend!

Why not relax with family and friends at our cozy cabin and experience all the fun that a lakeside location offers!? Kids love jumping off our dock and paddling around our quiet cove. Enjoy a meal or cocktails on the screened porch; walk in the woods, fish off the dock or rent a boat and explore one of the Southeast's largest and quietest lake. Do as little or as much as you like!

The newly renovated three-bedroom, two-bath Whippoorwill Cabin, is fewer than 2 hours from downtown Atlanta and 1 hour from Greenville. You'll enjoy the peace and quiet of our rural location...watch Canada geese paddle in the lake or maybe catch a glimpse of wild turkeys or deer from the comfort of the screen porch.

The rustic cabin, decorated in a relaxed country style, features an open floor plan that’s great for entertaining and larger groups. Sliding glass doors across the entire back of the house ensure a panoramic view of woods and the water from the living room, dining room and kitchen. The Master bedroom also features a deck, perfect for the morning cup of coffee.

All the bedrooms can be closed off for privacy and kids’ earlier bedtimes. The cabin comfortably sleeps 8 (1 King, 1 Queen, and 2 bunk beds).

The outdoor area includes a picnic table and charcoal grill.

A gentle slope takes you down to the dock and shallow kids’ play area. Use of a kayak ensures excellent exploring and fishing in the cove. We are also very close to the big water if you bring your own boat or Jet ski. You can moor them in our covered dock. The house is five minutes from the boat launch at Milltown Campground. (If you need to rent a boat, we can help you with that process.) The property and dock face farmland across the cove so your view is green and natural.

A perfect afternoon might be curling up with a book on the screen porch, surrounded by trees with the sounds of birds.

Other amenities include fully equipped brand-new kitchen with microwave and new dishwasher and refrigerator; new washer and dryer; kid’s toys and games; and selection of books and magazines.

The cabin is five minutes by car from Carter's Ferry Boat Ramp, 10 miles (20 minutes)to historic downtown Hartwell, and 9 miles to Hartwell Marina.

There is a fully refundable security deposit of $250 if no damage. The housekeeping fee is $95. We do welcome pets with a fully refundable pet policy of $200 if no damage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought this cabin so that our little girls would have an escape from the city to experience nature and the country. After purchasing the house, we quickly renovated it, adding the living room and master bedroom so that we could have friends and family stay with us. We hope that you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Hartwell:
Lake Hartwell has the unique combination of easy accessibility to major metropolitan areas and a quiet, remote location. Even on major holidays, such as July 4th, you feel like the lake is your private playground since there are so few people!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our quiet cove! There is no need to worry about jetski or boat traffic near our dock so kids can swim and relax without worries. The gently graded and short walk from our house to our dock makes the transport of coolers, towels and supplies an easy task. Our lot is wooded so you have lots of privacy. We renovated and decorated our home for a lakeside feel with fishing prints and country antiques. We love to cook so our newly renovated kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make a memorable meal! The wood-burning fireplace makes for a cozy getaway in the Fall and Winter as well. Owner is a licensed realtor in Georgia.
