We love coming back from a day on the water to all the comforts of home. The open floor plan on each level allows for easy conversation, while the beautiful bedrooms allow each guest a private recluse. The kitchen is fully stocked (2 coffee pots, griddle, etc), although on summer nights we love to simply make dinner on the grill and roast marshmallows in the fire pit.

We have a welcome binder to help you find local area attractions.

The surround sound system allows you to enjoy music throughout the house and on the decks.

About The Owner

Our family has lived in SC for 17 years and we have spent many summer days at the lake. Our kids love the lake and have learned a new skill every year-last year it was slalom skiing much to their Dad's delight. Our family fell in love with this house the moment we saw it. The house has a cottage feel and we know you will feel right at home and will relax and unwind. Here are the kids enjoying the dock and the water!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Westminster

We love Lake Hartwell and all it has to offer! You will love the coves that are perfect for skiing and tubing the kids in protected waters. The neighborhood is perfect with many community ameneties including an Olympic size pool, playground, tennis and basketball courts. Golf is close by-Clemson is just 35 minutes and Atlanta 90 minutes away.

Great Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful lake weekend. The Grandkids loved the ping pong table. The house is roomy so that we all felt we had plenty of room. The beds were comfortable and good linens. I will definitely keep this as one of my favorite places to "get away".

A week at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peaceful days and time spent with family. The lake was beautiful and we were all comfortable in this beautiful home. The pool was great and we had fun playing pool a little sunburn. We sat on the pier and my Dad didn't catch any fish but he caught a big turtle. He had a blast. The kayaks and the ping pong table were a big hit. We left video games at home and played board games at night. I found myself sitting on the deck and managed to read that book that has been collecting dust. We rented a pontoon boat one day and went tubing. We went sight seeing, seen waterfalls and ate at The Spotted Pig. My sisters family hit the golf course for a round of golf. How nice not having the usual hustle and bustle of vacation. Our family all needed some quality down time. The house more than met our needs and I highly recommend it to any family that needs to slow down and reconnect.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 for a Clemson game, and the house was perfectly setup for our weekend. The kitchen had everything we needed, the house was very spacious, and we got a lot of use out of the ping pong table! The owners were also very helpful with preparing for our arrival and in following up on items accidentally left at the house. I would definitely recommend the house for small groups of people looking for a great place to stay.

Excellent home and wonderful accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 for the Clemson vs App State football game. We decided to make a weekend out of it and it couldn't have been a better set up for us. Plenty of room, beautiful lakefront, ample parking and great outdoor setup to entertain. Can't wait to return!
