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.

Property Type

  • House
  • 1600 sq. ft.

Accommodation Type

  • Vacation Rental

Meals

  • Guests Provide Their Own Meals

Suitability

  • Long-Term Renters Welcome
  • Children Welcome:

    All age children welcome. We love to have children come. For safety sake, PLEASE do not leave your children alone on the dock or walkways. And ALL small children MUST wear life jackets when on the dock, walkways, or anywhere near the water. And an adult must be on GUARD duty. There is NO JUMPING from the upper deck. We are asked this frequently. This is a Corp of Engineer's rule of safety, as well as ours. ...moreless

  • Non Smoking Only:

    For smokers--please smoke outside, away from open doors and windows. Please dispose of your cigarette remains in burn barrel outside, not on the grounds. ...moreless

  • Suitable For Elderly Or Infirm
  • Wheelchair Accessible:

    Our home is one level and is accessible from the home to the dock without traversing any step downs. The travel would be across a very dense lawn, the small bridge you see in the pictures, oh, and a 1/2 step down here to the brick and concrete path to the dock. It would not be an easy wheelchair commute, but it would be do-able with the aide of a strong care giver. Or you could go out the door on the drive way side and be on solid surface the entire way. This would be far easier and just a few steps longer and well worth the view from the dock. ...moreless

Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, Beds for 4-6

  • Bedroom 1: 1 king

    large bedroom...moreless

  • Bedroom 2: 2 twin/ single

    2 single beds--not bunks ...moreless

  • Exceptionally Large Master Bedroom Suite with 2 large walk in closets. Windows on 2 walls with one full wall of windows facing lake, courtyard, and adjacent woods. Executive size desk and internet add to the usability of this room for the business person. The large TV completes the picture. Smaller bedroom has wall of windows looking out to park like bluff area with family type bench swing and sturdy single swing. 'Very peaceful / serene' is our most frequent comment. A computer desk and chair have been added. Adjacent bathroom can be private for this room alone, or opened to the dining area as well as this bedroom. Queen sized blow up floor bed available upon request for extra $20.00. There is plenty of room on the floor to add this in the master bedroom. May be useful for small child who needs same bedroom as parents and low to floor for safety. Closets large enough for port-a-crib for private infant bedroom. ...moreless

Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms

  • Bathroom 2: toilet, combination tub/shower

    one vanity, private for this bedroom-2nd door to dining area...moreless

  • Bathroom 1: toilet, shower, jetted tub

    double vanities, stained glass window, walk in shower, bench...moreless

  • Master bath has private water closet, separate shower with built in seating, double vanities, jacuzzi hot tub, and stained glass window. Smaller bathroom has pocket door connecting it to smaller bedroom for occupant's complete privacy, and a second door connecting it to dining area making it accessible to main living area as well as for private use by 2nd bedroom occupant. ...moreless

Other Amenities

  • 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. ...moreless

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.
