Perfect lakehouse for our 2 families

  • 5 of 5

June 26th - July 1st, 2016

This was a fantastic house and location for our 2 families - 4 adults and 4 kids (6 - 17). The house had everything we needed - the kitchen was well stocked (with a dishwasher, which helped tremendously!), plenty of rooms and seating throughout the house, bathrooms, towels, laundry, games - all the conveniences of home. And CLEAN! But the best part of all, it's just a short walk over smooth lawn to our very own double-decker deck! Jon and Park provide many floats which we used constantly. The lake was very deep (18 ft?) so it was perfect for swimming and fishing. We did bring our own life jackets for the smaller kids so we could relax a bit more. The chairs and umbrellas used on the top deck were ideal for reading or hanging out. We didn't do any boating, although there are boats available which I'm sure would have been fun on this huge lake.

This property is as good as it gets. If I had to find one thing that could improve (and this is being very nitpicky) - perhaps the kitchen could use more plastic containers for left-overs. But that's it - really!!!

Our families are from Boston, MA and Atlanta, GA and none of us had every been to Lake Hartwell. This house was even better in person than in the listing description and we are so glad we chose it! Jon was so responsive with all our questions - before booking, after paying, and even during our stay.

We hope to be able to come back some day. Thank you Jon & Park!

Fantastic Lake Home on a Gorgeous Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I met my daughter and her family of four with two large dogs to have a marvelous week at this commodious, comfortable, clean, well maintained lake home with all the amenities. My eldest grandchild who is attending Clemson University was able to join us easily for lake activities that made it even more special.

The owner, Jon, is a marvelous gentleman with a keen eye focused on maintaining a top notch rental lake experience at an affordable price.

Be sure to rent his pontoon boat--it's a terrific bargain!

Great weekend stay for families and large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake house and had everything we needed for a fun-filled weekend. The house is warm and cozy with a well-stocked kitchen, lots of room to roam and spectacular sunset views! The owners were very accommodating and checked in on us often during our stay. We will definitely come back again and stay much longer! Thank you!!
