About the owner: Our Dock has ALWAYS had good boatable water at least 8 feet at the end of the dock even during the recent historic drought.
Why the Owner Chose Hartwell: Lake Hartwell has good, clean refreshing water. It is much quieter than some of the other major Georgia lakes.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We thoroughly enjoy the peace and solitude of the lake whether having meals and drinks on the dock, or taking a short boat ride out to one of the undeveloped islands. The water in our part of the lake is spring fed and always feels clean and fresh.
