About the Property

Sleeps up to 8. 3 Bedrooms. 2 1/2 Baths.

We have a beautiful Cape Cod style cabin on Lake Hartwell, 30 min from Clemson, SC, 1 hour from Athens and 45 min from Helen and the North Ga mountains. Freedom Lake Cabin is clad in cedar and wood, inside and out and has a spacious open floor plan. The den has an open vaulted ceiling with a flat rock hearth and wood stove providing rustic lodge-like ambiance in a relaxed and comfortable setting. It is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing vacation with family or friends.

Wooden decks wrap around most of the home, providing beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding forest. The seating area on the back deck has speakers tied into the stereo system giving you the option to listen to music both inside or outside the home. There is also a screened in section of the back deck with a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The huge front porch has rocking chairs and a porch swing and is the perfect spot to relax and read a good book or just enjoy the atmosphere.

The den area upstairs has Dish Network TV and a DVD player, a multidisc CD changer and a stereo with speakers both inside and outside of the house. A dining area sits adjacent to the den and overlooks the lake. We also have WiFi Internet.

The home has a full kitchen upstairs complete with a JennAir range top for cooking and indoor grilling, an electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. The home also has a second kitchen in the basement with a range top and a mini-fridge.

The master bedroom upstairs has a king-sized bed and is furnished with several antique pieces from the Southeastern US. The master bathroom, just off the master bedroom, has a charming antique clawfoot tub, fitted with a shower. The 2nd bedroom upstairs is also furnished with several antiques from the area, including an authentic iron bed.

The home has a fully finished basement. The wood-clad den area in the basement has a TV and a karaoke machine with hundreds of songs available.

The home’s 3rd bedroom is in the basement. It has a queen sized-bed as well as a smaller twin bed. Just off this bedroom is another full bathroom with a combo shower/tub.

Outside of the home, there is a BBQ grill. The garage, just off the den in the basement, has a collection of life vests (all shapes and sizes), floats and water toys available to use.

The property sits on Lake Hartwell, in a quiet cove. The oversized boat dock has a covered storage area for a boat as well as a sundeck perfect for sunbathing. Kids (and some adults) seem to love to jump off the sundeck into the lake.

Pontoon boat and Jet Ski rental is nearby in Lavonia and Gumlog. More information is available upon request.

Whitewater rafting and zip line tours are also nearby in Long Creek, SC, a short 45 minute drive. For more info, visit

This is truly the perfect vacation spot for families looking to get away from the big city and enjoy time together. The close proximity to Clemson and Athens also make it a perfect spot to enjoy a football weekend. Great fishing, swimming and boating await you here.
