About Elissa Mcgahren

We have been married for over 15 years and have 2 boys in middle school. We love to come and relax at the lake house when we can!

Elissa Mcgahren purchased this house in 2004

Why Elissa Mcgahren chose Westminster

We grew up in Asheville, NC and now work and live in Atlanta GA, so we chose Lake Hartwell for a getaway because it has both mountains and water and is 1/2 way in between those cities so we can meet up with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

We just love the screened in porch for sitting and reading and relaxing and playing games with friends and family. It feels just like sitting in a tree house and we love the peaceful nature of it. We go there when we need to breathe and slow down life for a bit.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 adult children & 2 young grandchildren stayed here for a week in July. We had a wonderful stay! The place was so beautiful and comfortable and lots of fun for all of us. All of our activities (waterfalls, Chau Ram, Chatooga Belle Farms, Zipline Adventure) were fairly closeby ... no more than 30 miles away and were great day trips. We went to Helen GA one day which was great! The kids loved the lake and renting 2 jetskis one day was a HUGE hit. The back porch was just wonderful. We live in Florida so the cooler and less humid temperature under the trees was so comfortable. The house had everything that we could possibly need. loved it!

Having only one bathroom got a little tricky at times but we managed.

The hill to the lake was really steep - be careful going down and take your time coming back up. If you have knee or hip pain you may have some trouble or may not be able to manage. we did fine.

My only suggestion would be to put some sort of lock (high chain or hook/eye or bolt) on the inside of the front door so little children can't open the door and go outside. We just watched our granddaughters closely plus they're not escape artists like my youngest son use to be.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with our family :)

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Owner was very easy to coordinate with. We had a group of 10 adults and were not too cramped other than everyone sharing a bathroom. Only 2 cars fit in the drive way - everyone else parked at the top of the driveway. We even left the boat trailer at the top of the driveway. Very, very steep pathway to the dock, but nice dock. We brought a boat and put it in the water just down the way in the neighborhood boat ramp very close by and left the boat at this dock. Lake access was perfect! We wanted to grill, but grill was really dirty. Dollar general a couple miles away for extra little snacks. We didn't utilize the neighborhood golfing and such, but would definitely return to do so! Cool place to stay with a boat especially! Overall good experience!

Great view of the lake through the tree tops. Cozy, clean, and comfortable. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Tree Lake cabin. The view from the rocking chairs was beautiful. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. We took day trips to Helen, Athens, and Greenville. One day we went hunting for waterfalls. Chau Ram Falls Park is close by and has great Falls and an easy hike to walk out on the rocks in a cool stream. Our dog loved swimming out to get sticks from the lake. The owners were helpful and responsive. We'd definitely visit again.

Beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults, four children) stayed here for three weeks while we had repairs done on our house. We were very comfortable, and even though we are locals to the area where the home is located, we felt like we were on vacation. The sandy beach area at the lake is a fun place for kids to play. The beds are comfortable, and everything was clean. This is definitely a family friendly place to stay, and we enjoyed being there very much.

Relaxing Weekended Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had an incredible time staying at the Cottage! The house was super cute and had plenty of space for all of the guests. One of the little surprises we had during the trip was that the deck faces west so that means you get to watch a beautiful view of the sunset from the deck or dock!
