                  About the owner: We are a retired couple, originally from Montreal, Canada. We lived in the Atlanta area for 16 years, and have lived on Lake Hartwell for more than 10 years since retiring. We love living on the lake, and enjoy boating, and just relaxing by the water. We have 3 children, and 5 grandchildren, and they like to visit, and enjoy boating, swimming, and tubing.

Convenient to Outlet Malls near Commerce, GA Boat rentals are available at the local marina, only about 12 miles away. Tugalo State Park is only about 6 miles away, and has a beautiful public beach, and a playground for children. We offer concierge shopping service. Just send us a list of the supplies you will need, and they will be purchased for you, and on-hand at the house when you arrive. The cost of this service is 10% added to the cost of items purchased ($10.00 minimum)

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Huge outdoor deck with gas grill, table and chairs, and umbrella. Great for outdoor dining, entertaining, or just relaxing!
