About The Owner

Our family enjoys boating and relaxing by the lake anytime the weather permits. This lake house offers the perfect combination of privacy and convenience.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Hartwell Lake

This was the perfect Location, close to the interstate and shopping and a wonderful place to discover the natural beauty of the islands of Lake Hartwell.

What makes this house unique

There are only five houses on this end of the street it is extremely private. Exploring the area coves by canoe or kayak is fun too. You can walk the corp. line to the boat ramp.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Makin' Waves was exactly what we were looking for. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils and cookware and the beds were very comfortable.

This area of the lake is so pristine with lots of open water to enjoy and we also loved that it is only about 20 docks away from the Grillman Restaurant.

It was a pleasure renting your home and I will definitely recommend it to friends.

Wonderful Quiet Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My 22 year old son and I stayed at Making Waves for 3 nights. It was exactly the type of getaway I was looking for! We took advantage of the canoe and paddled to our hearts content on the lake. The area is extremely quiet! Other boaters were far and few in between, but it is autumn : ) The weather was perfect! The house had everything we could have hoped for. We cooked meals in the kitchen and ate on the deck watching the shimmering water below.

We explored the area as well. Anderson has a very cute downtown with outdoor cafes and shops. We found some local hiking trails as well.

Next time I'm in the area, I'd love to rent it again. There was plenty of room for other family members; we barely scratched the surface of things to do!

Our Hosts were responsive and timely in communication. We had no issues; check out process was clear.

Thanks again!

Wonderful House...Great owners to work with....Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a fabulous time at Makin' Waves! This has been our second trip to the house and we loved every minute there! The cove where the house is located is beautiful and calm. Sitting on the deck looking down at the lake was my favorite thing to do when we were not on the boat. The house was equipped with everything we needed...and we loved the added feature of the ice machine! Renee was wonderful and timely to work with!! Thank you!!

Quiet & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time while on vacation. We rented the pontoon and used it to explore the many islands and coves on the lake. Where we swam and splashed on the sandy beaches. The fishing wasn't bad either. We caught minnows and catfish from the dock, and bass while out in the canoe. The house was great with lots of room for our group of 7 to spread out. Thanks for a wonderful time!
