                            We recently stayed at this house over the Memorial Day weekend. The owner, Gary Adams, is a builder and appears to be great at his craft - this is a breathtakingly beautiful house. Also, the location is on a cove around the very short bend from the main area of Lake Hartwell, so you don't get lake traffic and the water is peaceful. This was important to us with beginner swimmers and little ones that were learning how to fish and get acclimated to lake swimming versus a pool. The kitchen is a dream and our group of 11 had the chance to put the kids in their own beds plus have movie night in the theatre - luxury ! I seriously loved the decor and the layout of the house so much that I would buy it if I had the cash ! But, we'll have to settle for a repeat visit and be grateful for Gary's hospitality. Thanks for the memories and we'll see you again !

                            In a pinch, we had to change dates and locations for our annual girls weekend. 14 women! Gary was great to work with, easy going and even met us at the house to get everything turned on. We had a blast watching movies in the theater and the best part was the porch beds! And of course the kitchen was amazing. Sitting on the screened porch drinking coffee and watching the deer was great morning entertainment. This house is missing nothing and we will definitely be back. There are so many sitting areas and entertaining areas, you would have never known we had 14 people there! Thanks again.

                            We've been to Gary's house two years in a row and both times were extremely impressed by Gary's hospitality, the amenities in the house and the overall experience. You won't be disappointed by anything, I can assure you of that!

                            This house is AWESOME! Our group does a spring and fall trip. Our frist stay was in the spring and we fell in love with the home. We have booked the home for our fall trip. If you stay in this house you will never want to stay any place else. The kitchen is great for large groups or families, bedrooms are spacioius. The theater and the screen porches are the best, we loved it. Words or pictures can not truly describe this home. You have to stay there to enjoy the true beauty! You will not be disappointed!!

                            I give this vacation home on Lake Hartwell rave reviews, 5 stars! It was seriously the best family vacation we've ever had. The owner went above and beyond to answer my questions concerning directions (I get lost easily!) and told me everything about the house. My family of 16 had space to spare, even with extra cousins and friends visiting. The house was unbelievably beautiful, from the gourmet kitchen to the theater room. The listing description was accurate, but no words or photos can accurately show how awesome everything is in this gorgeous home. I would highly recommend this home to other large families!

                            The pictures do not even come close to doing this house justice! The details and the custom wood work are phenomenal, we were in awe. The amenities were luxurious - from the master bath (and bidet) to the enormous gourmet kitchen, the surround sound was a wonderful addition, and the swing beds were a huge hit too, though all the beds were extremely comfortable!! We played a lot of pool and air hockey and even got to watch the UFC fights in the theater room (THANKS GARY!!!). The outdoor fireplace was gorgeous and perfect for making smores! The cove was very private and so close to the house, it was just perfect! We did a lot of wake boarding and tubing!! The guys fished a lot though very few fish were caught LOL. We really enjoyed our weekend here and wish we could have stayed longer!! We are hoping to come back soon for another vacation!! In regards to the previous review - during our stay there were very few bugs, the well water was fine, the only situation with the lighting was figuring how which switch was for which light/fan!! The security system came in handy since the beeping helped us know when someone came in or went out. That being said, our only recommendation would be to add an intercom system, that could be utilized down at the docks and throughout the house - would have come in handy when the boat was leaving so no one got left behind!

                            We took a 21-person family weekend over Easter and the home is amazing. Really big with some seriously cool details. The kitchen was awesome and well equipped (stove, fridge, freezer - everything was really big!) and easy to work. The bedrooms were cozy with soft beds and the teens really loved the sleeping porch beds. The lake access was great and overall we felt the home was an outstanding value. The lower level was still under construction but most of the house was in superb shape. Just a few things could have made it better: - There were a lot of wasp nests on the home and the constant threat of a sting (even on the screen porches) freaked out the kids (no one was stung though). - The well water had a bad odor at first but either we got used to it or it went away. - The home could use some dimmer switches - all of the lights were either very bright or off entirely. - The security system beeped every time someone opened a door which was quite annoying - A better map could be provided since the home is kinda' tricky to find But that's it! Very minor issues over the four days we stayed there. And the homeowner, Gary, was great to us and very welcoming. He is a professional custom builder and it's easy to see that he's very good at his craft. THE THEATER IS AMAZING! I wholeheartedly recommend this home if you are looking for a place for a large gathering. We loved it.

                            Owner response: I have been in touch with this family and they said they had a great time at the house. They also had friends to contact me about renting the house.The family was very nice and left the house in good condition as for the few minor concerns, the wasp were more than likely mud dobbers that live around the lake and collect insects in mud nest they don't sting. The well water does have a surfur smell when you first use it when the house has not been used. The smell goes away when you use the water.The lights, we use lamps when we don't want bright lights.The security, the doors do have small beep I have this to know when kids might be going out the lower doors because we are so close to the water it's for their safety.The map everyone on the street uses the same map with few problems.Every home and part of the country is different thats what makes our vacations unique and memorable. Thanks Gary

                            Get ready to be amazed. This house is by far one of the nicest rentals I have ever stayed at. My jaw hit the floor when we walked in. The owner built this house for use by his family and it shows. It has everything you need for a perfect family or group get together. We really enjoyed every thing about this place from the chef's kitchen to the stunning movie theater to the swinging beds on the patio. The owner is honest and pleasant to work with. We are already looking to book our next stay.
