About Jessie

"LOCAL RENTALS managed by LOCAL FOLKS since 1993".

In 1993, along with my wife, I left my Engineering Position with a company in the NorthEast Atlanta area and moved to the Lake Hartwell area where we began "MOUNTAIN LAKES VACATION RENTALS". The cheese has been moving constantly snce then. The Engineering background has enabled us to keep up with these changes.


We have been fortunate to be able to find quality employees who all live on or near Lake Hartwell. We have developed our own Web Site and also a Smart Phone friendly web site. We now list our rentals on several commercial sites such as VRBO and as well as working closely with local Chambers and both the Georgia and South Carolina tourism agencies.


ON-LINE RESERVATIONS & CURRENT AVAILABILITY of ALL our houses is available on the Mountain Lakes Vacation Rentals Web Site ( )



Our office is available for questions and reservations 9-2 Monday - Friday.

If we are unavailable when you call, leave us a message or send us an e-mail.

We will contact you during normal working hours (9-2 Monday - Friday)


CALL US FOR SERVICE 24 / 7 (800) 610-0020

If you are having a problem, we will return your call within 15 minutes. A local contact with local knowledge helps provide safety and security not available from someone 500 miles away. If you have a question or problem, call us any time night or day.


Why Jessie chose Fair Play


If you find the same house available the same dates, advertised at a lower price, show us the ad and we will match it. We accept any standard form of payment including most major credit cards. Always be wary of prices quoted on the internet that seem 'Too good to be true'



We automatically guarantee our rentals and you don't pay any extra fee.



Some agencies and/or owners have an extra charge for just about everything. Some even charge extra to furnish linens. With Mountain Lakes there are NO hidden mandatory charges.



Should you arrive and find that the home you chose it is not right for you FOR ANY REASON, we will arrange for you to transfer to another available home with no moving charges. All we ask is that you call us within 2 hours of your arrival.

What makes this house unique


Most rentals 'By Owner' add a cleaning fee of $50-$150, with Mountain Lakes the cleaning is always included in the published price.


EXTRA FEES: We have NO automatic mandatory charges.

PETS: In many of our houses (But not all) you have the option of bringing along your pet. We do charge extra for pets. Generally the charge is $75 per pet plus tax. Pets are usually limited to two per house. Be sure to inquire about bringing pets to the house you are renting. AND please be sure to tell us that you are bringing a pet when you make the reservation.

GARBAGE: We ask that you take your trash out when you leave. For many of our guests, it is routine to throw their trash bags in their boat when they are leaving the lake. If this is not convenient for you, feel free to leave the trash bags for the maid to take. If you do so, we ask that you leave the maid a suggested tip of $5 per bag.



Both GA & SC place the burden of paying Sales and Accommodations Taxes on the consumer, whether or not these taxes are collected by the Cabin Owner. We collect and pay these taxes so you don't have to. Taxes range from 7% to 12% depending on location and are INCLUDED in our posted rate. You will never get a bill “Out of the blue” for unpaid taxes on our rentals.

Filthy house

  • 1 of 5

This house is filthy inside and out. Dog hair was everywhere and the hardwood floors were nasty. Windows were dirty and we could not enjoy the view. No lights to see on porch while using the grill. The big green egg advertised had a lock on it. The fireplace is turned off and not usable. Several light bulbs were out. Very dusty inside. Could not walk barefooted or in socks due to hog hair. Refrigerator handles were sticky with food that I had to wipe off upon putting your food in the refrigerator.

With all that being said, I waited to post this and gave the management at Mountain Lakes a chance to make it right. I asked for the management to call me and never got a call. I was offered a very small refund through a text message from someone who works at the office.. not even close to a third of the cost which was an insult. I will never see that most likely. Never was apologized for the experience... just apologize for the fireplace not working it was offered $50 because of that. There was no mention of this very steep driveway which was difficult with the boat. I was very disappointed as this was a surprise anniversary present to my fiancé. Lesson learned, I will never use this management company again. There was a posting before I got there about the filth, and nothing was done before we arrived.

Not for senior citizens or young children

  • 2 of 5

Nothing mentioned about the very steep driveway that with rain and leaves made several cars slide plus the gentle slope to the barely visible lake isn't very gentle climbing back up the hill if you're a senior citizen. The house, inside and out, was quite dirty with dead and alive centipedes in the very water-damaged carpet and windows that should have been cleaned to at least remove the spider webs and bugs to allow a view of the trees. Just expected better for off season rates paid. Would not recommend for senior citizens or those with young children. Very steep 18 stairs to basement level where all bedrooms except master are located, with no door to block a fall.

Beautiful area, cozy house and a great escape from Irma

  • 5 of 5

We live in the Savannah area and decided to evacuate before Irma hit our area. With all the Florida evacuees, finding a place to stay away from the storm that would accept pets was a challenge. I was so happy to find this lake house! It was the perfect escape! We had never been to the Lake Hartwell area before and was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it is up there. The home was cozy and comfortable and had everything we needed. With only me and my husband, we had more than enough room. We didn't even use the downstairs at all. My only complaint was that many of the outside flood lights were out and need to be replaced. Other than that, it was a great time.

My family and I stayed here for the Thanksgiving we had an absolute wonderful time. It's beautiful, spacious and peaceful. Everything we needed and more than we had hoped for. Will definitely come back.
