Welcome to our Hartwell Lake home. We have owned this property for seven years and specifically chose it for it's unique location; on a private cove that is extremely safe for swimming and with easy access to and from the dock to the property, as we are about as close to the Lake as you can get (see photos). We also own the adjacent lakeshore lot and boat dock, which increases the tranquility of the location. The house itself was built in 1998 and has a very family friendly layout, with three double bedrooms on the two upper floors and two double bunks for the kids in the basement. The basement has a great indoor recreation area, including a pool table, wet bar and video games. The upper level of the house has a full deck with a large dining table, and outdoor grill. There is a further screened porch at basement level. The property is literally so close to the water that you can safely relax on the deck and watch the kids swimming only feet away. Outside the house there is ample parking space for several vehicles and we also own a further lot adjacent to the property which provides further parking space for larger vehicles, boats or RV's. The cove itself provides excellent fishing directly from the dock. In terms of watersports, there is no safer area in Hartwell to ski, tube or jetski, particularly if you have younger children. On numerous occasions, we have spent several hours on the Lake and only seen one or two other boats. For more recreational boating, we are very close to the main body of Lake Hartwell where you can literally cruise for several hours in open water. For cyclists, we have miles of very quiet roads ideal for family outings and an excellent mountain bike trail, opened two year ago, is only minutes away. Several of our guests have rented the property for Clemson Games and suggested we point out that we are less than an hours drive from the stadium.

Located in the upmarket area of Hartwell's Reeds Creek the property is about 15 miles from the city of Hartwell, where there is a good selection of restaurants and stores. There is a public boat ramp less than five minutes from the property where you can launch your boat. The Lake in this area is extremely quiet and calm, even during the peak vacation periods, so is very popular with fishing enthusiasts and is particulary safe for family water skiing and tubing. The public roads are also very quiet, which is great for cycling and there is also an excellent 7 mile mountain bike/hiking trail less than 5 minutes from the property.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are a British couple with a teenage son who came to live in the States about 11 years ago. We love to ski, tube, kayak and mountain bike.
Why the Owner Chose Hartwell: We had several friends who had properties on Lake Hartwell and fell in love with the location. When we decided to buy one ourselves we literally viewed hundreds before finding this unique combination of a family friendly house and an unbeatable location.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Early morning, cup of coffee on the wrap around deck and enjoy the 'million dollar' view of the Lake.
Get up early, and ski on a glass like surface.
