Mountain Lion, Bobcat and Bear! Oh My! You're not in Kansas anymore when you enter this Wilderness Lodge Retreat located in sunny Hartwell, Georgia. With over 30 'stuffed' animals, we can assure you this will be a rental you'll remember for years to come. You'll love the charm of this wooded lodge and especially the location on the lake just 1 mile from downtown Hartwell's shops and restaurants.
Imagine waking up with a hot cup of coffee and sitting in the cozy sunporch overlooking the lake. Watch as the heron spears her breakfast, the fish jump and the birds build their nests. Spend the day sunning yourself on the two story covered boat dock or relaxing in the shade on one of the many lounge chairs. You may bring along your own boat for docking or rent one at a nearby marina. Take a quiet kayak ride in the cove and search for the home of the resident beaver. We're minutes from the main channel and the deep water in our cove keeps us wet all summer long.
We have provided all of the necessities you'll require as well as much of the entertainment you'll desire for the whole family! A large recreation room provides hours of fun and enjoyment playing pool, ping pong and PS2 with our selection of games. If a football game or golf tournament is on the tube, watch it on one of our large screen (55', 70') TVs. Relax on one of the wood swings with a view of the water or soak in the hot tub with a glass of champagne. Have a festive family dinner around our farmhouse table or take a picnic to one of the many sandy shorelines on Lake Hartwell.
Bring your whole family for a vacation to remember on Lake Hartwell. Just don't feed the animals!

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are an outdoors family, loving to swim, hike, dirt bike ride, tube and enjoy the surrounding area. We've decided to share our lodge with other families through rentals and hope to enjoy it throughout the year as well. We love Hartwell, the great shopping, the amazingly friendly people and the slow pace. We can't help but relax when we're up here. Most often you'll find us reading a book in the shade, sipping lemonade and laughing at silly jokes. From our family to yours, we wish you a relaxing vacation!
Why the Owner Chose Hartwell, GA, USA:
Hartwell is awesome, just minutes from I-85 and convenient to Atlanta, Greenville, the North GA mountains it's in the perfect location to enjoy all that Georgia and South Carolina have to offer. The people in Hartwell make you feel instantly at home. The country feel yet access to city amenities makes it a perfect escape.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This quiet neighborhood has large lots, well kept houses and many full time families. The lake is quiet and huge! Many times we are the only ones out on the water. We love taking a 20 minute boat ride to the Portman Marina for dinner at the Galley and coming home with the beautiful sunset as the backdrop.
