Property description

Deer Cove Cottage is a comfortable retreat conveniently located off I-85 at exit 173 in an upscale neighborhood. The beautiful wooded property has a paved circular driveway and flat pathway to the lake. There is a 28’ x 34’ covered, lighted, slip dock in a large deepwater cove with views of the main channel. The cove, located at buoy T-64, is great for tubing and learning how to ski. There is also a canoe available for exploring the lake. The property is near two boat ramps, Tugaloo State Park and Poplar Springs, and 4 miles by water to Harbor Light Marina. The neighborhood is located just 1 mile from the entrance to Tugaloo State Park. In addition to boat ramps, the park offers camping, cabins, beach, tennis, playgrounds, putt-putt and nature trails.
The 2000 square foot home is perfect for a family get-together or getaway with friends, with many areas for having fun and relaxing. Enjoy morning coffee or tea on the spacious deck overlooking the lake, which includes a Weber grill available for use. There is a separate screened porch ideal for napping in the hammock and eating or playing games at the large table. Evenings on the dock offer spectacular sunset views across the cove and a perfect opportunity for watching for deer or the neighborhood beaver.

The main level of the home includes a well-stocked open kitchen, dining area and large great room with a stone fireplace, TV with DirecTV, DVD player and VCR. Assorted games, puzzles, DVDs, books, and toys are available. There is a day bed and convertible sofa which makes into a double bed in the great room, still leaving plenty of space to set up a card table for games and/or crafts. The main level also includes a bathroom and bedroom with a queen bed. For those who want to stay connected, wireless high speed DSL internet access is provided.
On the lower level there is a full bath, a second bedroom with a double bed and a twin bed, and a third bedroom with a double bed and a toddler bed. Towels and linens are available for your convenience.
For guests who wish to explore the area or pick up supplies, Deer Cove Cottage is close to shops and restaurants in Lavonia and convenient to Toccoa, Anderson, and Hartwell where you will find many restaurants and larger retailers such as Ingles and Walmart.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Deer Cove Cottage offers us easy access to fun times with friends and family year 'round! We chose to buy at Lake Hartwell several years ago due to the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere and beautiful water.

Why the Owner Chose Lavonia:
Deer Cove Cottage is located in a beautiful neighborhood that is comfortable and easily accessible for weekend getaways. Also, the lake isn't crowded, making for safe and fun boating with our family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the privacy of the property while still being part of a neighborhood. The kids spend hours playing outside and the dogs especially enjoy walks through the neighborhood. The close proximity of Tugaloo State Park is an added bonus where we enjoy tennis, putt-putt and the seasonal activities they offer. We are fortunate to be near Toccoa, Hartwell, and Lavonia and like eating at the local restaurants and browsing through the shops in these areas. We also have fun going to local activities and festivals.
