  • Family Vacation fun

    "This was our second year at this home....GREAT location on the Lake and easy access from the house to the dock, especially for small children. Improvements on the screen porch were GREAT...we sat on the porch every day. Our main concern this year was the state of the dock, it was very dirty and full of spiders. My husband actually spent one day scrubbing the dock which made a huge difference. Every morning we cleaned the spider webs and we couldn't sit on the dock in the early evening b/c it was over run with spiders. Our other concern is the attention to detail the cleaning people have, there wasn't a shower curtain liner in the bathroom and the shower curtain smelled like mildrew. There were webs in the bathroom and the sunroom, some light bulbs were out. Even with these issues, we did have a great time...we may rent again next year."

  • 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."

  • Great house and Great service

    "My youth group stayed here in Feb and got an unexpected surprise. Because of an ice storm, we lost power for a day. During that time though, Jack and his wife went the extra mile to try and make our accommodations better. They contacted the power company for us, sent the caretaker by to set up a portable generator, and called several times to check on how we were doing. Our group enjoyed our stay immensely and that's saying a lot since we had teenagers "unplugged". The cabin was great, but add to it caring owners, and this is a location that we'll revisit. Maybe in the summer when there's no threat of ice."
