About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12+)

Welcome to the Best Deal on Lake Hartwell! I don’t think that you will be disappointed in the effort that we have put in to making this lake house the best property for your next getaway. We’ve tried to think of everything you might want, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy! We have decided to invite guest to share our home.

When you arrive at the highly sought after Reed Creek Community, you will be happy to know that this house is located off the road in a secluded 1.5-acre lot.

This home has a lot of southern charm that you will enjoy. There are many antiques throughout the house. There are rocking chairs on the front porch. When you open the door you will find hardwood floors almost throughout the complete main level and basement. The main level of the house is host to vaulted ceilings and 18 foot stacked rock fireplace with gas logs. The floor plan is a very open one with the great room and dining room sharing one large room that flows openly to the custom made kitchen. The master suite is also located on the main level. It has a full sized bathroom with a garden tub/shower. Step out the of the Great Room and Dining Area to the back porch with a bead board ceiling, relaxing porch swing, and ceiling fans.

Take the staircase from the main level to the second level where you will find a bedroom that has two twin beds. There is also another bedroom that has a full size bed. One of the most unique features of this house is the upstairs bathroom. It has an antique chrome footed tub and pedestal sink.

If you take the staircase to the basement you will find a very open living room area there as well. The basement also hosts a very spacious queen bedroom and a seperate full bathroom with a slate tiled shower and floors. The laundry room is also located in the basement.

We have an air mattress, water floats, and life jackets for guests staying with us.

From the basement door you can walk out onto a large concrete patio. From here you can follow the gently sloped lot to the covered boat dock. The dock is empty so you may bring your boat or rent one while you are visiting. If you need help renting a boat please just let us know. The cove that this house is located in is a very quiet one, but yet it is just yards away from open water. This house is located where Reed Creek and the Tugalo River meet. It is a perfect location on Lake Hartwell. It is located on great water and just minutes to downtown Historic Hartwell.

Please come visit our home. We think it is the Best Deal on Lake Hartwell. We hope you will love it as much as we do!!!

About The Owner

This is our personal home so we take great pride in taking care of it. We decided to share our home so that others could enjoy it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

Very private lot. The lot is 1.5 acres and full of wildlife. We love the area. All of the neighbors are very friendly. The water level is great on this lot. Even with the drought, we luckily never lost water. We love spending every moment we can at this house. When you are there, you feel like you are away from everything, yet you can get in your car and be in Commerce or Anderson in 30 minutes.

Great place , great water and location

  • 5 of 5

Overall our stay was great. This is a very nice house with a great dock on deep water. The cove was perfect for our kids to swim in with out the worries of boat traffic. Everything you could ask for in a lake house. We will stay again.

Lack of attention to details

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here with our son and his family as well as my sister and her family so we could attend a wedding in the area. The home was plenty big enough for all of us, but there were several things that left the stay less than stellar. The first major issue was that we stayed here during the deep freeze the East Coast was experiencing. The temperature never got above freezing the whole time we were there and the heat only blew in the upper level. The basement only had one tiny space heater with no heat or air ducted to it and the main level blew sporadically. So the folks who stayed on the top floor were in a sauna and the folks in the basement froze. Also the coffee pot overflowed with grounds and made a mess on the counter every time we tried to use it. The actual pot does not fit correctly under the filter part. There is a keurig, but we had already bought ground coffee, so that would have been nice to know beforehand. There were no blinds in the main living areas so at night you felt like a sitting duck with all the other houses on the lake being able to see what you were doing. The drive way would be absolutely impossible to get out of it had rained, snowed, or iced. The trash man never came on Friday and the bins were full from the previous occupants, so all of our trash had to be placed on the street by the bins. Overall this house has tons of potential. But it is in need of a deep clean as well as some maintenance. The house was not filthy, by any means, it is just showing the strain of being a rental property.

Very relaxing and peaceful. Driveway to property from the road is a little rough

  • 3 of 5

Very relaxing and peaceful. Driveway to property from the road is a little rough Walk to dock is a bit rutted out, rocky and muddy when it rains. Very nice covered boat dock Houses HVAC system needs a little improvement. Chilly upstairs, maintains temperature on the main level fine and it isn't hooked up downstairs but looks like they are currently working on it Very nice house. Overall a beautiful home with everything we needed. Would recommend. Owner very responsive if any questions or anythng needed at all! Had a very relaxing time on the lake!!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear that you would give my house a 3 star rating. I have not had a rating below a 5 star and I really take my ratings to heart. I did not hear from you personally during or after your stay until the review. The air upstairs can be adjusted, so I am sorry that you guys were chilly. I do not have a paved walkway to the dock; however, I have never really had an issue with the walk to the dock. It is a very short walk and most of it is grass or Corp property. If I remember about the time your stayed, we had rain. When we have heavy rain in Georgia, things do get muddy. The driveway does get a little washed and we try to smooth it out every few years (it is gravel so it will wash with the heavy rains that we have received this year). With that being said, it is not to where you need any kind of 4-wheel drive vehicle by any means. Cars can easily drive to the house. I am REALLY glad to hear that you would recommend my house. However, with a 3 star rating I am afraid that renters will overlook your recommendation. I truly appreciate your feedback and I will try to make any corrections that I can based on your recommendations. I hope that you will return again.

Happiness on Hartwell

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we had. I would recommend this home to anyone. The lake was beautiful, loved that we had our own dock which was beautiful also. The house was very warm and inviting, just felt like we belonged there. We will be back in the future all the way from Michigan, North Carolina and Florida ! Thanks Mishea, everything was fabulous!
