About Melissa Collum

We originally purchased this lot with a small park model as our first home. In 2005, the POA allowed us to build a home and we began the journey. With help from many friends and family, we built our beautiful home away from home. Our children love to go to the lakehouse and we love that we can share it with others.

Melissa Collum purchased this house in 1998

Why Melissa Collum chose Hartwell Lake

Somehow when you arrive at our home, your stress and worries move to the wayside. It seems like time moves at a slower pace and you can simply enjoy life with your friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your lake house - so homey and so much to do in the area!

We enjoyed hiking, waterfalls, a visit to Clemson, laser tag, etc.

Your home is warm and inviting with so many personal touches.

Thank you,

Delightful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here in January visiting family in the area. The house was reasonable and so comfortable, and being on the lake was so delightful. The weather was even wonderful so we were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy it view even more. The grandkids loving learning how to play foosball. I am sure they will vote for us to stay here again.

Highly Recommended

  • 4 of 5

This property is a great place to stay for Clemson game day weekend or a quiet lake house vacation. The kids love the foosball table, and the doc is great for swimming, fishing or docking your boat. It was also a joy doing business with the owner.

Fun, loved the water

  • 3 of 5

We meet our children and grandchildren to have a weekend on the water together. We swam alot, so much fun having the dock. Exception: The dock was not kept up very well, spider webs, storage pin no lid and very dirty. Beach area not very good. Loved the home, renovated upstairs and very nice with balcony. Downstairs, beds not comfortable, no place to put your clothes. Loved downstairs porch. Very safe area and great neighbors, helped us out when we got lost in our seadoo. Helped our boys blow up floats. Friendly and fun people

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying in our home and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay! We are blessed and grateful that we can share our home with others to spend time with their families. Unfortunately, with our dock being in the weather and exposed to all elements, we are unable to keep the spider webs off as it is part of 'lake life'. We do not offer a beach area as the water level fluctuates with the weather (rain, drought, corp of engineers). I am sorry that there wasn't enough room for your clothing. Each room has a closet and is provided with hangers for your use. Because of the size of the room, we've chosen not to use dressers because of space and to keep the house clean as dresser drawers can become dirty and unsanitary. Thank you again for your stay!
