Waterford Lodge is an authentic log home right on LAKE HARTWELL, complete with ALL the modern conveniences that you would expect in a luxury lake resort destination. It’s located less than 2 hours from downtown Atlanta, but it feels like it’s a million miles away from all the hustle and bustle. Maybe the EIGHT PERSON HOT TUB has something to do with that! It is cleaned and comfort balanced for each individual visit.
You enter the grounds through the stone and iron gates into a treed lake setting that is private, but not isolated. The Lodge has four complete master bedrooms with private baths and it will sleep 15 people comfortably. The master bedroom bathroom on the main floor even includes a seated steam shower, so kick back and pamper yourself for a change! The terrace level is equipped with a custom-made bar constructed from real pine logs, a second living area with flat screen TV, and a cozy master bedroom with full bath. And don’t worry if you get a little rain, because the home has a complete entertainment and media room with theater seating. We even provide a pretty full DVD movie collection for your viewing enjoyment. Or you can try your hand at Karaoke, board games, croquette, billiards, ping pong and MORE! It is the PERFECT place to spend a vacation or you can simply enjoy a fantastic long weekend get-away.
The fully equipped kitchen has it all……complete with specialty cookware and flatware……even a Margarita Machine! Just bring some clothes and some food and enjoy your getaway. If you forget something, you can pick it up along with miscellaneous sundries at the local Calico Store and bait shop. For those grilling enthusiasts there is a stainless grill to cook up those family BBQ recipes - no charcoal needed. The grill is directly connected to a large propane tank.
The Lodge is perfect for football fanatics in the fall and for swimmers, skiers, wake borders and children of all ages in the warmer months. Want some exercise? Jump onto one of three mountain bikes that are tuned and ready to go. Look out back through our panoramic windows in the low light of early morning or late evening and you might steal a glimpse at some deer gathered around our deer feeder in the woods. The bird feeder just outside the family room windows is always an area of interest.
We also have a 25 foot Pioneer pontoon boat for renT or you can bring YOUR boat or jet-ski to our double-slip, covered dock. The boat launch is just five minutes away. Waterford Lodge is on a part of Lake Hartwell that is active but not too busy….it’s just right. Bring your fishing gear and cast out into one of the better fishing lakes in Georgia. One guest caught a 5 lb. bass right from the dock.
We’re also close enough to head over to The Currahee Club, home of one of the ten most scenic golf courses in Georgia (membership required). And the Club is a great place for fine dining too or you can take a half hour drive to Anderson, SC. You will find pretty much all your nationally recognized eateries and few local gems.
Downtown Toccoa is about 20 minutes away. They have a grocery store in addition to restaurants, banks, package stores, etc. There is an adorable downtown street with art galleries, a few cute shops and stores that any antiquary would enjoy. Also in Toccoa is a Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant, a nail salon, a Sally Beauty Supply and a statue of the strongest man in the world.
The mountain town of Helen, GA is a famous German hamlet that is about an hour away where you can tube down the Chattahoochee River, zip-line or just watch the tubers floating by while you enjoy a beverage and some live music. Oktoberfest is their busiest time, but the area hosts year round activities and family enjoyment. You can also go white water rafting on the Chattooga River and/or explore the 3 waterfalls at Brass Town Falls.
We are 45 minutes from Clemson University and one hour from University of Georgia - Athens.
All facets of your stay are covered in our complete handbook that you get when arrive.

About the owner: Hi there! We don't get away much. So when we do, it's gotta be WORTH IT! One weekend we had time to visit friends at this very house on Lake Hartwell. We had a great time on the water and that evening we sang and danced and laughed during our own little concert in the media room. We fell in love with this home. Now it's ours! We still love it and we hope you will too!
Why the Owner Chose Martin, GA, USA:
We chose this location due to its proximity to metro Atlanta as well as the fact we have never seen a log house so authentic and modernly functional at the same time. It's close to white water rafting the Chattooga River, the tourist town of Helen, GA; the Tanger Outlet stores and then Anderson, SC for traditional mall shopping.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you are inside Waterford Lodge, you know you're in a log cabin. There are no sheetrock walls. It is all log cabin and it feels and smells sooo good. There are trees everywhere and is a great place for the lake and just for a cabin getaway. Great for a girls weekend get away or a family week at the lake. Ask about renting our 25' pontoon boat!
