  • Tranquility Base - Can't Wait To Go Back!

    "We expected a relaxing weekend and OH, did we have one! This home has all the amenities that you can imagine. The comfort of a home away from home and a view to die for! We went there with another family and we are already planning another get-away to Tranquility Base. Thank you, Tranquility Base! We returned to the city refreshed, relaxed, and renewed after our weekend. We can't wait to go back!"

  • 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."

  • Thanksgiving Week 2013

    "We had a great family & friend gathering for the entire holiday week. Our age range was 74 to 18 and everyone loved it. The kitchen is well equipped and perfectly laid out. The open design allows the cooks to be constantly part of the fun. The bedrooms are nicely organized. Plenty of towels. The deck areas are both great. Very quiet neighborhood. Loved the proximity to city of Hartwell and grocery. Owner was very responsive to additional questions in advance and while on-site had a TV ? and they called immediately. Very cool spot -- we'll be back!"

  • Great lake weekend!

    "This is a great house for families and the owner is wonderful to work with. The outdoor set up with covered deck, fire pit, covered dock, paddleboat and much more was great! It was a great weekend with family and grandkids. Lake was down this late in the year but didn't keep us off the water!! Highly recommend this cabin. Inside renovation was great!"
