Overview

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.

Cute cabin with direct lake access

  • 4 of 5

Nice cabin with direct lake access. Sleeps 7 adults in bedrooms and room for 3-4 more on bed with trundle and pull out couch in downstairs living room. Two bathrooms had showers, but were only accessible through a. Bedroom. This isn't a big deal with our group, but could be an issue with other groups. House has plenty of linens, towels, and kitchen supplies, which is great not having to worry about packing dishes and cookware. Furniture in living room is comfy, but only really enough seating for 7 adults. Wish dining room table was a bit bigger as it was a squeeze to seat 8, but we made it work. Owners were very responsive to answering questions before the rental which was great. Dock provides access to lake in quiet cove perfect for floating around. Lake levels were very low (although the owners have no control over this so I don't fault them) so if you are planning on bringing a boat I would check with them to make sure the water is high enough. During our stay only a pontoon boat could have made it to the dock.

Nice house. Dock not good for hanging out on

  • 4 of 5

House worked great for our family of four and guests (12) that we had over for a cookout one night. Plenty of room and deck was convenient for us and our two dogs who made friends with the neighbors black lab who was a very sweet friendly dog. We stayed Friday night through Sunday night and had pontoon boat which we were glad we had planned on spending time on. Due to lake levels (beyond owners control) we had just enough water on one end of dock to be able to load boat. Other sides were dry. Unable to hang out and swim at dock and not sure even at high water this dock location would work best for that.

Probably should not be renters - cruise next year

  • 3 of 5

Nice house.

Dock is almost un-useable and they have their boat docked there so you cant use it if it were in any water.

Owners need to keep it as lake house. They don't need renters. Long list of items to complete when you rent from them. I really just want to relax. They complained about everything. we loaded the dishwasher but my wife forgot to start it. One of my guest, during the stay, blocked the neighbors dirt road in the dark for 30 minutes.

I lost my car keys and had to drive and get them an hour away. We were late checking out. Give me a break. It was not intentional.

We ended the trip with the owners giving us shots to us. Even that turned into as speeding ticket that was almost a DUI. Next year I am doing a cruise.

Cute cabin, great werkend!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend at the cabin, plenty of space for 7 adults and our dog. We loved the board game selections and the karaoke was a blast. Next lake vacation we will definitely come back to this cabin!

Intimate and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We did not have as much time to kick back in the cabin as we would have liked. The cabin had everything that you could want on a trip to the lake. Nostalgic and cozy, spacious and eclectic. I cannot wait to return! We have taken trips all over the world and this has been hands down one of the most comfortable places to stay. Thank you for so many personal touches that made it a more special place to spend time in.
