"House is in a convenient place on the lake - close to Harbor Light Marina and an easy drive into Hartwell to shop.
The layout of the house was great for families with the 2 bedrooms on the third floor, living area on the 2nd floor and 2 bedrooms in the walk out basement. Dan was very responsive and provided a full walk through of the property when we arrived.
The dock and beach area is fantastic - we spent most of our time down there and had a great time.
The house is quite a walk from the dock (the golf cart was broken) and you can barely see the water from the house. The house does need some TLC - landscaping is very overgrown and not maintained and it is time for a deep cleaning of the baseboards, blinds, etc."

"Once again we were not disappointed. This is the second time we have stayed at Deer Cottage. We have rented many houses at Lake Hartwell, and thus far this is the best. The house is always clean, has everything you need and then some. Lots of room. The walk to the lake is not very long and the smooth level shady path makes it nice. The dock is great and always on deep water. The owners are wonderful and go out of their way to assist in anyway they can. I would recommend this house to any family who wants to relax and enjoy themselves. Only suggestion would be to get a larger/newer gas grill for those of us who grill every day for lunch and dinner."

"Hartwell Manor impressed every family member when they arrived for a cousin's reunion from 5 states - 7 families with 7 kids ranging from 2 to 18. There wasn't one thing not to like! The pictures don't begin to describe what is really behind the front door of the house. I think it has been said in all of the other reviews. We have rented a lot of vacation homes and this by far the best one ever. There wasn't anything lacking inside or outside the house. The most popular place for us was the dock with the boating, fishing and swimming. Everyone was so happy to be able to swim in warm, clean water without chlorine or salt. If we ever need a house this big again, it will definitely be Hartwell Manor. Steve, the owner and Ted, the "greeter" were both outstanding. What a wonderful, unforgettable experience!"

"I love this place! I stayed here not one but two times this past year. I even got to bring my lab! Each time was a great experience and Ed and Wendy were a pleasure to deal with. Everything was as promised when we arrived. These pictures do not do this place justice. All of the rooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and eat. I loved the outdoor deck overlooking the lake. We loved sitting on the dock and using the paddle boat. Ping Pong and Air Hockey were great for the nighttime activities. The second weekend I went it was very cold outside so I was happy to see the firepit. We sat in front of it and made smores and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this lake house for many things and will definitely be returning."
