About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

If you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy a serene and quiet retreat, our home is perfect.

Quiet cove, wooded lot, great lakefront location...

Adults, kids and dogs love our location.

Swim in our cove, fish off the dock, moor your boat or jet ski on our dock, paddle in our two-person kayak, or just enjoy a meal or cocktails on the screened porch.

We are approximately 1 hour & 45 minutes from downtown Atlanta and 1 hour from Greenville.

All the bedrooms can be closed off for privacy and kids’ earlier bedtimes. The cabin comfortably sleeps 8 (1 King, 1 Queen, and 2 bunk beds).

The outdoor area includes a fire pit, picnic table and charcoal grill.

A gentle slope takes you down to the dock and shallow kids’ play area. We are also very close to the big water if you bring your own boat or Jet ski.

The cabin is five minutes by car from Carter's Ferry Boat Ramp, 10 miles (20 minutes)to historic downtown Hartwell, and 9 miles to Hartwell Marina.

There is a fully refundable security deposit of $500 if no damage. The housekeeping fee is $95. We do welcome pets with a flat fee of $25 per pet.

About The Owner

We bought this cabin so that our little girls would have an escape from the city to experience nature and the country. After purchasing the house, we quickly renovated it, adding the living room and master bedroom so that we could have friends and family stay with us.

We hope that you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Hartwell

Lake Hartwell has the unique combination of easy accessibility to major metropolitan areas and a quiet, remote location. Even on major holidays, such as July 4th, you feel like the lake is your private playground since there are so few people!

What makes this house unique

We love our quiet cove! There is no need to worry about jetski or boat traffic near our dock so kids can swim and relax without worries.

The gently graded and short walk from our house to our dock makes the transport of coolers, towels and supplies an easy task.

Our lot is wooded so you have lots of privacy.

We renovated and decorated our home for a lakeside feel with fishing prints and country antiques. We love to cook so our newly renovated kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make a memorable meal!

The wood-burning fireplace makes for a cozy getaway in the Fall and Winter as well.

Owner is a licensed realtor in Georgia.

Perfect lake house getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Whippoorwill Cabin was in early November. The weather was less than desirable, but the quaint, cozy home and setting made up for it. Absolutely SPOTLESS and everything we may have needed was available. A nice open floorplan allows the home to feel comfy for two and uncrowded for as many as eight. We didn't thoroughly read the instructions as to how to enter the home and texted to get information...Stephanie called us immediately. Communications were easy and quick. We were disappointed to not be able to get on the water with the provided kayak, but it was too chilly for us Floridians...we will save it for our next time there! The wildlife is abundant. Various birds to watch, fish to catch, and we saw deer two separate times on our drive in the neighborhood. A trip to town is 20 minutes and Clemson is about a 45 minute drive. A very relaxing, quiet environment .

Lovely cabin that was just comfortable to be in. Enjoyed coffee on the screened in porch in the mornings and wine in the evenings. Well stocked kitchen. Lovely dock. Wooded setting. Very quiet.

Perfect Getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

My first impressions when I walked in was 'the pictures don't do this place justice." The kitchen, dining room and living room all open into each other creating a spacious area for larger groups. I was worried that will every bed filled, the rest of the house would be a tight fit, but that was not the case. We enjoyed mornings on the screened in porch, which had plenty of seating! The kitchen is stocked with anything you may need to cook a good meal for a large group. The beds were comfy, the water pressure was great & there was plenty of parking. The lake was clean and there was plenty of dock space to spread out and enjoy a nice warm day in the sun. We live near the city & this was the perfect place to wake up to the birds chirping and a peaceful lake setting. We're already planning our trip back next year! Oh! And Stephanie was extremely accommodating and responsive as we were planning our visit. Seriously the perfect combination across the board!

The house couldn't have been more perfect for our weekend on the lake to celebrate my husband's birthday. The owners have everything you need for a very relaxing stay. We hope to go back again next year!
