Close to Clemson, this beautiful, multi-level brick home has just been freshly remodeled including all new furniture and fixtures. Top floor has king, queen, bath, living room and kitchen. Bottom floor has queen, twins, queen sofa bed in large living room , bath and laundry. The two separate living areas make it perfect for two families or one large family. This home is very clean and comfortable.

Covered boathouse sits in a quiet cove that opens into the heart of the Seneca River and Lake Hartwell. Concrete steps to lake (no muddy dirt path). Excellent calm water to boat, ski, fish, explore or relax. Pet friendly (call first) with doggy door and fenced yard. Located just 2 miles off I-85, so access and cell service is not a problem. Many quaint shopping areas are close by. Also nearby are some awesome sightseeing opportunities: including Mountains, Waterfalls and State Parks, excellent Hiking and White Water Rafting.

This truly is the place to 'Get Away From It All'. Come feel the Harmony on Hartwell.

About Rob

We are the Cochran Family. Rob, Kathy, Cody and Tyson (our 4 yr old Black Lab) and the Murphy Family (Rob's Mom and Dad). We own an RV Parts and Service Company in Central Florida. My mom and dad are retired and also live in Central Florida. We all love the outdoors and love being on the water. Prior to purchasing this home, we were renters on Lake Hartwell so we know what it takes to make a great vacation experience. We've worked hard to make sure we provide a home with the decor, comfort, amenities and cleanliness that are 2nd to none. Come enjoy our home, you won't be disappointed!

Rob purchased this house in 2008

Why Rob chose Townville

We vacationed on Hartwell in 2007 and just fell in love with the lake and area but we were very disappointed in the rental company and the condition of the home we rented. We thought we could do a much better we did! We found this beautiful home in a perfect, quiet location. It had just been completely remodeled and was just what we were looking for. So we purchased the home and my wife and mom beautifully decorated with all high quality merchandise.

What makes this house unique

This area just seems to drain the stress right out of you. It is so beautiful and relaxing. We love everything about it. Sometimes we pack a lunch and go out on the boat skiing and boating all day. When we get hungry, we just pick an island to stop and have lunch. We relax on the beach and the kids(and dog)explore the island. And the mountain drives with the waterfalls...just unbelievable. You can really see God's hand at work here! We always hate to leave!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and roomy lake house. The layout was perfect for us. It is well-maintained and very clean. The beds are quite comfy and everything was new! It is beautifully decorated and they have a well-equipped kitchen.

The owners provided a notebook with information about the property and the surrounding areas. They even printed out maps to grocery stores, restaurants, the marina and provided maps of Lake Hartwell.

There are steps down to the covered dock. There is a small fenced-in back yard and doggy door for pets--perfect for our little dog.

They have satellite TV with lots of channels--both upstairs and down. We didn't watch much, though. We were too busy having fun on the lake!

We grilled every night but the last one when we went to Anderson and had a yummy dinner at the Olive Garden.

We'd love to return. I would recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: We had vacationed on Lake Hartwell several times prior to purchasing our vacation home, so we know what it's like to be from out of town and need local information. We spent alot of time making sure the details were covered and it really makes your vacation more enjoyable. If you're not sure what all the area offers, we're always glad to discuss your vacation with you and help you fully enjoy all that upstate SC has to offer.....and it's alot!

Clean and Spacious - Great Get Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

Good Morning,

The home was very clean and spacious; my trip included a lot of first for our family. If you are looking to get away from the day to day stresses of life and just enjoy the family then I strongly recommend this location.

The teenagers had access to WIFI and they also had the opportunity to get in some fishing; my thirteen year old spent most of his time with his Uncle fishing which created memories he will never forget. I spent quality time with my sister and brother and sister; the not too far from the local stores so if you need some additional items they can be easily found. The Kitchen was stoked with pots, pans and utensil you would need to prepare a meal for indoors and outdoors.

Thanks for making our first family vacation a great one! Scott Family, Beasley Family and Murray Family!
