About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and enjoy our amazing family home w/Max Size Double Decker Dock, Private Setting, Hot Tub, BIG Screen TV (w/ 190+ Satellite Channels on DirecTV), Pool Room and Free Wi-Fi. I also rent out my pontoon, just ask. You will love having all of the advantages of home without all the stress. Lake Hartwell is an absolutely beautiful place to spend your vacation time. (And YES, we have water. DEEP Clean Water 30++ feet) Ask about our 7 Day/ 6 Night Promotional Discount!

NOTICE: My house is not well suited for those with children between the age of 2-5 due to this truly being my house and I leave out many valuable items at children grabbing levels.

If you are looking for a break from the stress everyday life brings, you have come to the right place. We have found making the quick drive to the lake is just what the doctor ordered. Come kick back in the large open family / living space and catch the game on the big screen TV. Or perhaps you are the type that likes to have a little privacy to catch up on a good book.

The sun porch off of the main living room has its own fireplace and is just the place for that quiet down time. Pack your cooler and head down to the dock to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. For those who love to grill, you have the option of cooking your lunch or dinner on the grill at the house or perhaps you might prefer to use the one down at the dock. We like to turn on the music down on the dock and just enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle.

Bring your friends and family for a great time on the water. There are 4 local restaurants within 2 miles for those wanting a break from cooking.

*57 Steps away from 30+ feet of deep water!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We want to thank you for a wonderful stay at the lake. We worked our calf muscles up and down to the dock. The water stayed 85-90 by day, which made it nice in the southern heat. If anyone in the future seeks a fishing trip we recommend "Captain Bill" fishing adventures. There was more than enough space and sitting areas for always a different view of the lake. Thank you again from all of us.

**Magee note - 52 paces down the concrete path to the water**

beautiful home - clean and well maintained

  • 3 of 5

Great place - except for the steep downhill slope to the water. I had no problem with it, but my fellow guests did. We had to drive them over to an alternate launch area and then pick them up with the boat. And the TV is about shot - but still works. Did enjoy the stay, and thank you for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Note that guest were in their 70's and late 60's. My 74 year old mother with replaced knees makes it up and down just fine. I appreciate you visiting

Very nice place on quiet section of Lake Hartwell close to the marina and access to highway.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed home with lots of room for spreading out and having fun on the lake. The home is well laid out with a master bedroom on the main floor and an open space connected to the kitchen area overlooking the lake.

Driveway down to the home is steep and may take you by surprise arriving at night, but once to get the hang of it works well. As the owner points out, the concrete path down to the lake is steep, too, but it puts the large double-slip dock not far from the downstairs exit from the house.

Was a lot of fun for the whole family.
