About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

5 bedroom 5 bath house on Lake Hartwell, with terrific water views from nearly every room! Our home away from home has everything you need to relax and enjoy a fantastic vacation on Lake Hartwell.

Kitchen has beautiful granite counters and is equipped with everything you need and more! Master bedroom is conveniently located on the main level with access to the deck. It has a private master bath with dual sinks, jetted tub, separate shower and walk in closet.

There are two decks, one off the living room and a massive deck lakeside (with Adirondack chairs and umbrellas), as well as a covered patio off of the walk-out finished basement and a covered front porch. Sit and relax with a book during the day and stargaze at night!

For those rainy indoor days, enjoy a game of pool, foosball, board games, video games and movies (large movie collection). We are on a deep water cove with our own private boat dock perfect for swimming, sunbathing and daydreaming!

The lake has so much to offer: boating, sailing, jet skiing, water skiing, fantastic fishing and our personal favorite is camping on one of the many islands around the lake. We are located on the east side of the lake on a quiet dead end street. It’s a quick 10-15 minutes to several grocery stores, restaurants/take-out, local shops and easy access to interstate 85. Enjoy a round of golf and dinner right down the street at Stone Creek Cove. Hop in the car and head out to Anderson Jockey Lot and Farmer’s Market, the south’s largest flea market, for some shopping or to Hartwell Dam for some sightseeing and picture taking! Anderson SC and Hartwell GA have everything you need but if you want more, we're only 90 minutes from Atlanta GA and 2 hours from Charlotte NC. More area information available upon request.

We're conveniently located about 2 blocks from a boat launch. If you don't have your own boat no worries, we offer a fantastic 27 foot pontoon boat for rent (valid license required).

About The Owner

We are a Charlotte family who enjoys spending our spare time at Lake Hartwell. We purchased the property in 2008 as a weekend getaway but since the arrival of our four girls we find that getting away is not so easy! So we decided to share our home with vacationers on VRBO. We hope you enjoy your stay at our home away from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Anderson

We choose Lake Hartwell for our family vacation home because it's within driving distance, the lake is much less crowded than popular lakes in the Charlotte area, it's relaxing + peaceful, and the people are so friendly!

What makes this house unique

Our dead end street is very quiet allowing us to walk with our dogs and babies without any concerns. There is a boat launch and small park area at the end of the street which is convenient for our renters but seldom used by people in the area.

Most of our neighbors are year round residents and super nice!

We love the view of the island directly opposite our cove. Sunsets are beautiful year round but particularly spectacular in the summer! The water is very deep allowing us to enjoy skiing, tubing and swimming without worrying about any 'thru-traffic'.

Super Sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic week enjoying the house, the boat and lake Hartwell. The house had more than enough room for all of us and our dog enjoyed exploring the lake also! The house is well kept and the owners responded quickly to any questions we had. We spent every minute that we could on the lake, trolling around, site seeing and fishing. The rooms are all well appointed and the basement is awesome if you have bad weather and need to stay inside. Loved it!

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family at this amenity filled, spacious home! Comfortable Beds, beautiful views and a great basement! Attended the Clemson/USC smack down and enjoyed every minute! Very quiet location, but really convenient for shoppers, foodies and Clemson fans! If you are looking for an unbelievable restaurant for dinner, you must try The Galley at Portmans Marina! Absolutely Delicious! Also, lastly, the owners were easy to work with and very responsive! Thank you!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this home. Had a wonderful time. The home is very spacious, clean and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed the game room at night. The view of the lake is gorgeous and I always had my morning coffee on the back deck. It's not the sunny side at that time of day. So nice! The dock was easy to use and water was deep there. Will definitely be back !

40th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the weekend to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. Great space accommodated 4 couples and the bottom level with pool table and media room were awesome. We had two boats and plenty of room at the doc. A great place next to the house to put the boat in and we saw deer in the yard. We will definitely stay again in the future.

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredibly enjoyable week at this beautiful home.. in spite of the weather! We stayed during the horrendous rainy week in late September. There was still plenty of fun to be had. We enjoyed the videos and games, and enjoyed the dock and lake between downpours! The home has everything you need and was very comfortable. Hope to rent again for future visits to our daughter, a Clemson student.

Came into town for a Clemson football game with some friends. House was gorgeous! Very well decorated and the furniture was comfortable. Enjoyed sitting on the deck and just looking at the lake. Very well maintained. Already thinking about renting it again for our trip next year!
