Property description

Lone Star Cabin is located at the end of a private gravel street on a quiet cove of Lake Hartwell in Martin, Georgia. The lake is perfect for kids big and small, who want to go boating, fishing, swimming, and exploring. The wood cabin with 3 decks and wood stove surrounded by natural vegetation allow you to get back to nature the old fashioned way. Some other favorite activities we enjoy at the cabin are roasting marshmallows by the fire at night, catching fireflies or baby frogs (which come out by the dozens in springtime), or picking blackberries by the road if in season. If you want a break from your kids saying they are bored, then you have found the right place!

This newer vacation home has 4 bedrooms, and 2.5 baths and boasts many deck areas, indoor and outdoor living areas, granite in all bathrooms, fire pit, and lots of games and activities for adults and little ones.

It has a master on main off the kitchen, with a king bed, and adjoining master bath. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, and one full bath. The upstairs bedrooms are: one queen bdrm, one bunk bed (twin over full) bdrm., and one bdrm. w/futon/TV/playroom. The house itself if fully equipped with wifi and satellite TV so your vacation stay will be as enjoyable as possible. Some of the extras our home offers are: a ping pong table and dart board (bring your own darts) in the unfinished basement; a game and craft armoire; Little Tykes kitchen & toys; an outside living area on the covered porch, where smoking is welcome; as well as a large fire pit for roasting s'mores outside. Bring your movies and books for a relaxing getaway from everyday life.

Eastanolee Creek, around the bend from our cove, is known for some of the best fishing in the Southeast. Within a 5-10 minute drive, you will find 3 boat launches and Tugaloo State Park on Lake Hartwell. Within a 20 minute drive you will find great antiquing, hiking, waterfalls, shops, restaurants and golf.

Dogs are welcome with prior approval and a pet fee.

Other Amenities

  • We are located on the upper quiet end of the Eastanolee Creek, which feeds into Lake Hartwell. Within a short 5-8 minutes drive, you will find 3 separate public access and boat launch areas on Lake Hartwell--Poplar Springs, Holcolm Access, and Bruce Creek. Harbor Light Marina is nearby if you would like to rent a boat for the day. Tugaloo State Park is also within a 10 minute drive of the house, and it has sandy beaches, picnic areas, and swimming areas. In the fall, the water level often drops very low, to where you may not be able to get a boat to our dock. Lake Hartwell is not a constant level lake and we cannot guarantee that our dock will have water under it at all times. There have been times that we have little or no water under our dock. Please verify water levels on the Lake Harwell website, if water depth is critical to your vacation. Even without water, the cabin is still a quiet, tranquil place to relax and enjoy family time, plus there are many nearby lake parks....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Lone Star Family: We are a family of 5 from Alpharetta, GA (Atlanta), about 1.5 hours away. Ed and Megan, originally from Texas, named the house after their home state. We have 3 kids, ages 16, 11, and 6; as well as dogs, so the house is definitely kid and pet friendly.

Why the Owner Chose Martin:
We love the North Georgia area and enjoy spending our free weekends on Lake Hartwell. Martin, GA is just far enough away, that we can drive it easily in under 2 hrs. from our home in Alpharetta, but feel like we are really getting away from the city. The house gives us the mountain feel, with the bonus of the nearby lake to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two of our favorite things our family enjoys are frog/toad catching and berry picking in the spring, when the tiny frogs are everywhere and the wild blackberries are abundant. The kids love to fish and explore and go on scavenger hunts. Fall is our favorite time to spend up there with cooler weather, bonfires, and the leaves changing colors. For water fun, we enjoy pedal boating, skiing, and wakeboarding, but mostly just tying up to our friends' boats and hanging out/swimming in the water.
