Recent Hartwell Lake reviews

  • Flabbergasted!

    "We had wanted to stay here for a while as there is no other place like it as far as the wilderness theme to stay in that we had seen online. We had booked Thanksgiving here long in advance and boy what a great decision that was. The minute we walked in the door until the day we left, we keep seeing different things and admiring the surroundings we were in. Plus everything you could ever need is there (and superior quality). We both agreed that it was our best place we stayed since our search for the perfect place for us years ago. We will definitely be back to experience it in another season and beyond. Trust me when I say there is no place like it! Tonya & Bruce"

  • the perfect vacation spot!

    "We loved Hartwell Heaven. It was perfect for our family. The kids had a separate place to play away from the adults. We loved the dock!! The pedal boat was so much fun and there were lots of noodles for us to all float on. The house had so many amenities, way more than expected. Plenty of towels for swim and bath. Lisa was so quick to answer any questions I had while preparing for our trip! She had everything so organized! Hartwell Heaven was like being at home and we just wish we could have stayed longer!"

  • Fantastic Lake House Close to Atlanta

    "Spent a fantastic weekend with family in this spotlessly clean lake house where every need has been addressed. The game room and Happy Lizard Bar were our favorite places to hang out after a long day on the lake. The owners were wonderful to work with and I would definitely recommend this beautiful house to others. Try it, you will be glad you did!"

  • What a find for a crowd!

    "There's nothing like this place for a relaxing annual family reunion. We went with four families including 7 kids between 15 and 21- most said it was our best vacation ever. And this is a crowd that prefers beach vacations (NC Outer Banks). The house is like a luxury hotel but on a quiet finger of a huge lake. We swam across "finger" to state park - nice hiking there. Boathouse has canoe and commercial-grade 4-seat paddle boat. We rented a 28' pontoon boat for a day to explore Lake Hartwell. Explored several islands. Basked on beaches with fish coming right up to us... But back to the house: grounds are beautiful. We fished, had campfires on lakeshore twice under fantastic star canopy. House has high-end finishes and appliances (maybe a little too high-tech - better instructions for the cooktop would help), huge bedrooms, nice baths. Dining area seats 16 not counting additional seating at the adjacent kitchen bar. Two attic dorms are great for kids, and though they don't have doors, acoustics weren't a problem - the walls and doors to the other bedrooms are very soundproof. That said, living room was so big that it was sometimes hard to hear. We joked that it must have been built by the inventor of Windex due to all the glass. Terrific huge screened porch, several decks (with grille) for readings, conversation. We got a lot of use from separate screened hot tub room with piped-in music. Impressive tree swing at edge of lake. The posted photos don't do it justice - I sent Steve (owner) a few more to add to website. Not many other young adults in the area meant we spent more time with each other - a blessing in disguise. Steve was great. When he was away, he had his very nice neighbor stop by to see if we needed anything. My only hesitation in recommending it for families with small kids is the water being so close - just keep an eye on them. "Downtown Café" in Lavonia was excellent. Very much enjoyed visit to Greenville for a day - excellent restaurants, nice (if small) downtown, wonderful downtown waterfalls and park. We never got to Anderson. Overall, we were just too busy enjoying the property and the week just flew by - before we knew it, the it was time to leave, but filled with lots of photos and great memories."
