About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Master bath has Jacuzzi tub. Sleeps 6.

Our home is well maintained with 1600 sq. ft, landscaping, and sits in a private, wooded 11-acre tract. It has a large master suite with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Hardwood floors with area carpets enhance the living experience. There is a huge covered dock with sun deck to tie your boat up to. Rental boats available at Harbor Light Marina. Free use public boat ramp close by to launch your boat. Available canoe and floats to use for your leisure activities. We do have a security system in place which shows the 4 corners of our nearly 11 acres of property on a monitor. No one is manning this monitor, but it is helpful to have in place in case of a concern. The visual does not extend as far as the dock. We also have in place several motion sensitive lights. Those lights come on whenever motion is detected. This might be a person, a cat (there are 4 outside cats), deer, raccoon, or other animal. These are not connected to any cameras. They are just courtesy lights. Probably the best courtesy is for a late arrival. When you would pull up in the drive way, the motion sensor light comes on and stays on long enough for you to put the code 1243 in the key box, retrieve your keys, unlock the door, retype 1243, replace this key, and close the box, all with plenty of light. You will then find several sets of keys on the kitchen counter. It's also a nice way to welcome you back 'home' after dinner when it is dark, and you forgot to leave an outside light on.

Great rental. Cozy in the woods. Right on the lake.. Everything you need is right here. Pets considered. When pets are allowed, we ask that they not be on any furniture. I do use the red sofa covers when a pet is here, just in case. If I did not put them on by mistake, please find them in the master closet in the top drawer. And we thank you so much.

Wi fi is available. The Password is located in the master bedroom on the bottom of the router where it says PASSWORD. Use that password and you will be connected.

Directions for using the TV's are located in the living room, under the glass on the coffee table top. There are very specific directions for which controller to use for what and the order in which to push the buttons. There will be no difficulties when done in this order. And again, we thank you so much. Neither of us is very 'techy,' and me not at all.

House is 1 level and easily accessible (no step) from driveway to house. No steps inside house. Open floor plan. From house to dock would require 0 step downs from driveway side to solid surface (brick and concrete) to walkway to dock. Land is a gradual slope to dock, not a steep descent. This would allow occupant of wheelchair to enjoy dockside lake activities while sitting on lower level of dock. Sunsets here are lovely, very serene. Please ask about our lake level. This is a nearly private deep water cove. However, we have had to chase water during droughts and 'dam maintenance,' low water times. When this occurs, we have approximately 6 steps from the walkway to the shore. During those times, it would be very difficult, even unsafe , to try to get a wheelchair occupant to the dock. So please ask owners before booking. Our goal is for your safety first, and your pleasure and memorable experience second. We love return visitors and hope you will be among them.

Could not have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many homes on the lake and this was by far our favorite. Perfect for up to 6 people. Everything was clean and the property we'll maintained.

We spent most of our day down at the dock. Nice deep water in a quiet cove. Plenty of comfortable chairs on the upper deck where you can choose sun or shade to enjoy the day. We had lots of room to dock our 2 jetski's and Pat even had a couple extra bumpers on hand so the skis were secure.

We will definitely be back for another vacation. Thank you Pat and Mary for an amazing week!

Great master bedroom/bath

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and the landscaping was very nice. The property sits on a lake cove with nice water for swimming, fishing, and the dock to sit. Pat and Mary are very nice owners. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Home was immaculate! Vacationed for a few days with my kids and had the most amazing time. The property around the home is just as beautiful as the home itself. My kids had so much fun swimming off the 2 story deck you really have to see to believe. Pat and Mary were such gracious hosts we really felt at home. We are already planning our next trip back.

Was a tad uncomfortable on arrival day when I realized the owners live on property. However, Pat & Mary were so warm & inviting, the anxious feeling disappeared immediately. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I would definately return for another stay.

A nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The owners are great, very very nice people. The house was very clean and the property was superb. The only down side could possibly be the proximity of the owners residence to the rental. The yard is shared between the residences and u must pass the owners main residence to get to the lake. This did not matter to us, but if you are looking for complete privacy, this would be a problem.

Lake Hartwell , a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina, is one of the largest and most popular public recreation lakes is the southeast. It has a shoreline of 962 miles. Our home sits on almost 11 acres of that land with 1032 feet of shoreline. There are many public parks and marinas close by. Fishing is legal anywhere on the lake with either a GA or SC license. Visit nearby waterfalls. Play golf. Go rafting or canoeing on the Chattooga River, or use our canoe for a more leisurely ride. Enjoy Clemson University sports or visit the Botanical Garden. Go hiking at trails of all levels of difficulty. Go boating or water skiing. Tie your boat to our dock, the largest private dock (we're told) on the lake, in the deep water cove we call home. Relax and enjoy.
