Looking for the perfect family getaway? Then this beautiful home on Lake Hartwell is the one for you! Vaulted ceilings with lots of windows provide great lake views from the house or the two covered decks. The open kitchen plan has a table that seats eight comfortably and a table on the deck just outside seats four more. The pine floors and ceiling in the living area, along with the stacked stone fire place give the house a mountain feel but its just a short, easy walk to the dock.
The master bedroom on the main level of the house provides lake views, a king-sized bed, TV with satellite, and private bath. A bonus room (equipped with a single bed with trundle) and half bath are also located on the main level. The large open living area features lake views, a queen sleeper sofa and 46 inch TV with satellite and DVD/VCR player. And WiFi.
The upstairs features two bedrooms, a full bath and a large loft area with plenty of room for an air mattress. One bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom and single on top and the other bedroom has a queen bed. Unfinished basement has a ping pong table for those rare rainy days.
The double decker dock sits at the beginning of a quiet cove that allows for children to play safely in the water. The dock also features a single boat slip, swim deck and covered area on the top deck. We also provide 2 Kayaks for guest to use. Owner's boat is on a lift in the slip but there is plenty of room for two more boats on either side of the dock.
It's just a short drive to Harbor Light Marina (where you can rent boats and jet skis) or to Tugaloo State Park which has a beach area, picnic area, miniature golf, and other amenities. Toccoa Falls and shopping in Toccoa is only a 15 minute drive from the house. Helen Georgia is less than an hour drive away with plenty of unique restaurants, shops and other activities including a water park and river tubing.

About Chad Lowery
My wife and I got married in 1997 and have lived in Athens GA. for most of our lives. Our children are Peyton (18) and Tristan (13). I am a real estate invester and my wife works for the University doing training. We love to travel, snow ski, scuba dive and just hang out at the lake.
Chad Lowery purchased this House in 2007
Why Chad Lowery chose Martin
We chose to buy our house at the lake because we loved the area and it is only a 1 hour drive from our house in Athens. Lake Hartwell is a beautiful lake with a feel of being in the foothills. Fishing is great and it is such a large lake so there is plenty to explore.
What makes this House unique
Our house is convient to I-85 and easy to get to from Atlanta. There are parks nearby and plenty to explore. Our dock has a party deck and can accomidate a large family compfortably. It is in a wooded area that allows for plenty of privacy.

House not quite as described
Unfortunately, this is not a new house and not fully as described. The owner was very attentive to questions prior to arriving, but when I encountered issues that were different than what I was informed of, he became less interested in communicating. Overall, the house is nice, but not new. Some of the furniture was broken (kitchen chair, patio table, grill, etc.). The deck chairs on the dock are all moldy, ripped or generally worn out. I have pictures if you are interested. Also, lots of the carpet was worn out. None of this would be a big deal if I knew it up front as I would have rented a different house. Upon asking the owner for a discount due to their lack of forthrightness in their description, they dismissed my request. So renter beware. Note: the lake is beautiful and one that kids and family will enjoy.
We have never had a bad review. This one is greatly exaggerated.
Bad Beds, Lots of spiders, scary driveway
The good things: nice view, large porch. interior is clean. The not so good things, the upstairs beds have mattresses which are very cheap and uncomfortable, the exterior is covered in spiders and spider webs which included all exterior furniture and the dock. The driveway is very steep and if you have multiple cars it is hard to turn around at the bottom. Backing up or down narrow curvy difficult drive is not fun or relaxing.
Clean, well-designed house on a quiet part of Hartwell
Great house for family celebration of Nana's 90th birthday, but could also see it as a comfortable and fun rendezvous spot for a girls' weekend or small group retreat. We brought a boat, which definitely enhanced our experience, but the dock has a nice view, with plenty of sunny and shady spaces for just hanging out by the water. We really enjoyed our stay!
The lakehouse was roomy and clean with everything we needed.
We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were fine. The dock was mostly ok except there was an abundance of wasp nests and wasps flying around. All in all it was fine. No Wifi which was probably a good thing but unfortunately no cell coverage.
We loved tht large deck and the ping pong table!
nice, spacious, clean home. Very comfortable and easy to have a large group.
Property was easy to find and maneuver. The house is in a very nice area. We enjoyed it greatly!
Our family of 9 stayed here Memorial Day weekend. The house was very nice and clean with lots of space for us all! We cook a lot and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need! Down the hill is the lake and the dock is a very nice double decker. We spent a lot of time there. The lake was low and not very deep in this area but one small crappie was brought in and released back! The kids had a great time and we all enjoyed this vacation home. Thank you!
Located on beautiful Lake Hartwell in Martin Georgia, this house is close to Toccoa, GA. Clemson S.C. and not far from Helen, GA.
