Property description

**Agent/Owner**
Hartwell Hideaway is a perfect place to relax, play and getaway. Built in 2005, Hartwell Hideaway is a large, 5-bedroom lake home nestled on a 1 ½ acre wooded lot. It offers a tremendous amount of on-site activities and is located within the Appalachian Recreation area providing endless excursions.

For those interested in playing in the water we provide kayaks and fishing gear. One of our favorite activities is to float in the cove and towards the end of the day catch the sunset on the water. We recommend making that a margarita sunset – with our infamous “Jim-a-rita” house recipe. For those seeking a more relaxing onsite experience we encourage a nap in the hammocks, a long dip in the hot tub, or sun bathing and reading on the upper deck. Campfires on the beach or in the fire pit are priceless as well.

Food, music and drink are a big part of Hartwell Hideaway. We supply a fully stocked kitchen, a large grill and smoker for those wanting to get their “BBQ-on.” Happy hour is typically served at the Patio Bar with tiki torches and a game of Bimini Ring Toss. Evening activities include foosball, darts, Ms. Pacman (on the the Ms. Pacman Arcade table to include Galaga and more), board games or movies on the 56 inch HDTV. Yes, we have a huge, fluffy, reclining pit couch in the entertainment room to watch games and movies. Though don’t be afraid to just have conversation and quiet time on the upper deck with a nice fire in the chiminea. Flashlight tag is a favorite for the kids.

Offsite adventures are endless. Right out the back door you can start a day of boating, skiing, fishing, and site seeing. Within 15 minutes on the water you can be on the white beaches of Tugaloo State Park, a secluded island, or join in the fun at Party Island. Tugaloo State Park is a ten minute car drive and provides a mega boat ramp, tennis courts, nature trails, evening nature shows, mini golf, and other facilities. You can tie your boat at Hartwell Hideaway’s dock, or if you need a boat or jet ski rentals can be arranged at nearby Harbor Light Marina. Within 30 – 40 minutes you can be shopping, antiquing, golfing, hiking next to waterfalls, horseback riding or taking a tube or canoe down multiple rivers.

Hartwell Hideaway is a 2,400 sq ft, multi-level house designed for entertaining and spreading out large groups. It has one king-bed room, two queen-bed rooms, one room with two twin beds, and one room with a twin bed and a bunk bed. All king and queen beds have down-alternative comforters with duvet covers and all duvets/comforters are washed and changed after every stay.

NOTE: We do not offer use of a golf cart.

Hartwell Hideaway is about 90-minutes from Atlanta; 45-minutes from Anderson, Clemson, Athens, or Helen; and 15-mintues from Toccoa or Lavonia.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are busy professionals from Atlanta raising a beautiful young daughter and two pugs. Life is hectic, yet rich. We talked and dreamed about having a place to getaway and create memories for the family. We finally took the leap and invested in Hartwell Hideaway. Hartwell Hideaway is our respite. It provides a perfect place to relax, yet also provides endless activities and fun for us. There is never enough time there.

Why the Owner Chose Martin:
We prefer Lake Hartwell for several reasons. First, it sits on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains providing beautiful scenery, a forest type environment, yet has plenty of white sandy beaches and islands to play. Second, it’s a quiet and safe lake, especially compared to others in the area. Third, it’s close to many of the North GA adventures such as white water rafting, tubing, zip lining, golfing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, sightseeing; and close to Helen, Anderson, Clemson, Hartwell, and the Carolinas. It is a total recreation area for everyone.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The options and activities are endless. We love the mornings sitting on the deck, sipping coffee, reading, chatting or just taking in the quiet. We love playing in the water, going boating, skiing, and we love cooking dinner with friends. Food, music and friends are big deals at Hartwell Hideaway. We love watching the dogs run and sleeping in the hammocks. Fishing on the dock also has provided some wonderful memories as well, as has campfires.
