Property description

The cottage duplex is located on a secluded acre + lake lot with a lighted, very gentle slope, cement walkway to the lake and dock through a wooded area. A winding driveway leads to the property. The driveway is the only road frontage which contributes to the seclusion and quietness of the property. There is plenty of parking for both vehicles and boat trailers.

The duplex is one of six homes on the short dead end street, four of which are vacation homes. Although secluded, the cottage is only three miles from the beginning of downtown Hartwell. It is only 1/2 of a mile to the public boat ramp and by water about ten minutes to the marina.
The 233 side of the duplex is occupied by the owners when in town.
Our vrbo guests do not share the dock with anyone.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are both registered nurses, parents to seven, six of which are in PA where we are originally from. We love to visit with our guests if they wish to and if we are at the lake. Roy loves woodworking, and building houses or additions. Diane loves to make jewelry, angels and paint/decorate Christmas balls and attend fairs where she sells these items. We love swimming, fishing, boating, gardening roses, playing games....etc. We have Shih Tzus who have their own private areas.

Why the Owner Chose Hartwell, GA, USA:
We already had a home on Lake Hartwell, wanted a smaller home to retire to in the future which was more secluded and private, and wanted an income property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the seclusion and that we are only three miles to town. One of our favorite things to do is to have breakfast on our screened in porch, sitting in our rocking chairs and watching the deer wander in the woods and on the walkway to the lake. We have lots of beautiful birds to feed and watch, too.
