About the property

Lakefront Charleston Home, 4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Covered Dock

Relax in our Charleston-style waterfront home on beautiful Lake Hartwell. This quiet getaway is located on a quiet cul-de-sac hidden from the hustle and bustle of everyday and situated on an alcove tucked just off of big water. We have gone to great lengths to make this a comfy home away from home with all the ammenities you want in a vacation rental.

This 2,700-sq.ft. home has hardwood floors, plush leather furniture, stainless steel appliances, wireless internet, DIRECTV, dining room table, coffee table doubles as dining table for kids, a work nook with Dell printer, a playroom, swim towel/toy nook, and a fully-equipped laundry room.

Sleeping & Floor Details –

Third floor has 2 bedrooms with brand new luxury quality mattresses, a 320 sq. ft. master bath with jetted tub, stand-up shower, dual vanity, a separate water closet, and access to the top, front porch; and the work nook.

The main level serves as the public space with the kitchen, dining area, living room, pantry, half bathroom, playroom/kid’s room, screened porch and a deck. Additional highlights include a large screen HDTV with expanded DIRECTV, wireless internet, foldout twin sofabed, TV/DVD in playroom (plug-in ready for favorite game systems), board games & puzzles, fully-equipped kitchen, grill, hammock, and more.

Ground floor has: 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom with tub/shower combo and dual vanity, and a swim towel/toy nook. Additional sleeping options: a twin fold-out sofa bed (in playroom), an Aero-bed, 2 fold-out extra long twin beds, and a pack-n-play.


The front of the house has 2 long porches. The back side of the house has 2 decks, 2 screened porches, & a large patio that offers a variety of space for outdoor activites. The 3rd level has a furniture set for 2 and a hammock to enjoy the peace and quiet atop the trees. The main level screened porch has a table that seats 6, a chargriller charcoal grill, and child-sized adirondack chairs. The 1st level has adult-sized adirondack chairs to sit and enjoy the up-close view of the lake.

We are on a gentle-sloped lot that is within 65-feet from house to the waterfront along a shaded concrete path. No long uphill/downhill hikes! We have a covered deep water dock with electrical and water service. You’ll enjoy spending the entire day on the dock and swimming in the protected lake alcove – out of the wind, waves and boat traffic. Grab a floatchair and float your worries away! Like the name says, this is “Hartwell Heaven”!

Hartwell Heaven is less than 90 minutes from the Atlanta metro area, only 45 minutes from downtown Greenville (SC), and just over 2 hours to Charlotte making this an easy weekend or full-week getaway. Conveniently located less than 15 minutes from Anderson (SC), you can find all the restaurants, shopping and entertainment needs of a larger city. For Clemson University alumni and fans, we are located only 20-25 minutes from the campus by car, or you can take your boat for a pleasurable cruise up the Seneca River and dock nearby “Death Valley”.

About Glen & Kristy Adair

We are an Army family who calls 'Upstate, SC' home. The Upstate of SC has so much to offer – from lakes to mountains, college football to fishing tournaments – within a relatively short driving distance. We are both graduates of the local well-known university and lovers of Lake Hartwell. We live and work less than an hour away (in Greenville) from Hartwell Heaven. We take pride in our property and are responsive and available to personally attend to any of our renters needs. Our lake house is fully furnished and treated as if it were our second home! We looked forward to sharing our secluded and relaxing getaway with you.

Glen & Kristy Adair purchased this house in 2012

Why Glen & Kristy Adair chose Anderson

Since we met at Clemson University (just up the road), we've always been drawn to Lake Hartwell. Lake Hartwell is one of the southeast's largest and most popular recreation lakes. We knew we wanted a place where we could get away from it all (without going too far). Hartwell Heaven is a very short distance from Interstate 85 – making the drive to/from Greenville, Charlotte and Atlanta convenient. Although the lakehouse is off the beaten path, it is convenient to all the amenities one might need (movie rentals, movie theaters, shopping, and dining are all less than 15 minutes away).

Hartwell Heaven sold us the minute we saw it... situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, about 65 feet from waters edge, on a deep, peaceful alcove, just off of Big Water, you can sit on the porch, listen to nature and feel a thousand miles away from 'city life.'

We look forward to sharing this hidden treasure with you.

What makes this house unique

The landscape is natural and serene! You will not find a more peaceful place to spend your free time! The water in our cove is very deep allowing us to enjoy skiing, tubing and swimming without worrying about lots of 'thru-traffic'. PLUS... each bedroom has a lovely view of the water. With the many porches and decks, there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature.

In addition, we are a local family so we have the ability to respond to our guests needs directly and are happy to answer any questions.

Perfect family Home

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for our family gathering. Plenty of room and mostly comfortable furniture. The only reason we could not rate this house a 5 star is our son and daughter in law did however have a rough night sleeping on the downstairs queen bed. The mattress could really use an update or thick mattress pad. The master bedrooms beds were amazing. Nice quiet neighborhood and beautiful view of the lake. Overall we would definitely come back to this property.

Perfect location and beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

2 weeks of fishing, boating, dining, exploring and fun filled bliss!! Owner is career military, which I have great respect and gratitude, but still managed to take time to keep in touch and take care of his guests. Beautiful home with every amenity. Only minutes from downtown Anderson due to its close proximity yet still in the solitude of he country.

Wonderful Vacation with our family

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with out family. We had spectacularly weather and our four grandsons especially loved swimming in the lake. The house is well equipped and was great for our family of 10. When we had AC problems initially, they were addressed and taken care of quickly. We will be back, as it is a great locality for coming to Clemson football.

Go Tigers,

The Sattazahns
