About the Property

Convenient, Cozy, and Quietly Situated 3 BR\2 BA w/Ramp, Marina, and Park

Blue Bottom Cove, is conveniently situated on beautiful Lake Hartwell, located in the quiet serene of a rural type setting in a deep water cove – and yet close to the things that are most important for making your family vacation or weekend getaway comfortable and relaxing.

There is a large screened porch with vaulted ceilings that is a favorite gathering place for morning coffee and evening wine and is the epicenter of relaxation. A large sunroom is connected and sits behind with a bar, fireplace, and oversized dining table that seats 8-10 persons.

We are located on the Georgia side, just a stones throw from South Carolina around the corner from the New Prospect Boat Ramp, only minutes away from the Hartwell Dam, Hartwell Marina, and Hart State Park.

We sit in great water where the main body of Lake Hartwell borders Hart County. Boat Rentals: There are a couple of places to rent boats nearby. Hartwell Marina (706) 376-5441, and Gordon's Marine (706) 376-3355. Less than 10 mins. away by car, or around the corner by water.

We are only 10-15 minutes away from numerous restaurants and shopping surrounding historic downtown Hartwell. It is only a short drive to many scenic areas both on and off the lake including some top rated golf at nearby Cateechee Golf Course, and memorable dining at the Waterfall Grill. Portman Marina hosts two very nice restaurants accessible by both land and water.

On a clear day – from many parts of Hart County, you can see the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. There are many great hiking trails in both GA and NC in 30-45 minutes of the home. With only a short drive you can visit other nearby scenic areas like Toccoa, GA; Greenville, SC, and Ashville, NC.

Lake Hartwell — is without a doubt one of the most beautiful lakes in the Southeastern United States. Being fed by two rivers that come right out of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the water in Lake Hartwell is reported to be more pure than in many municipal water systems. Standing on our boat dock you can look down through 10-12 feet of crystal clear water at small pebbles and fish on the bottom of the lake.

Lake Hartwell covers a land area of 56,000 acres and has a shoreline of 962 miles. Stretched out in one straight line, this would span the distance from Atlanta, Georgia to Buffalo, New York.

Unlike some of the smaller lakes nearer Atlanta, Lake Hartwell is neither crowded nor contaminated.

Having a depth of up to 202 feet, the 21 species of edible fish in Lake Hartwell have plenty of room to navigate – and yet they seem readily available to latch onto minnows, artificial lures and other fish bait.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My wife and I grew up near the Great Lakes and really enjoy being around water. Shortly after moving to Georgia, we found ourselves missing home and the beauty and peace of the water. After looking high and low for several years, we found what we feel is the best lake situation on what is a true hidden gem in the southeast, Lake Hartwell. We have raised two boys, now approaching their teens, and hosted dozens of our friends at this home. We have enjoyed holidays, special occasions, vacations, and mostly just time on the weekends escaping the busy and fast pace of our lives in the Atlanta Area. Having grown up on the water, we enjoy all that it has to offer: boating, water sports, and fishing. The lake has great fishing and is home to the Bass Master Classic and over 21 species of fish. Below the Hartwell Dam, Lake Hartwell provides the main headwaters to the Savanah River. We have enjoyed fly-fishing for trout in this area, as well as walks across the dam and surrounding parks.

Why the Owner Chose Hartwell, GA, USA:
What we love most about this property is where we are located. We are have the serenity and seclusion of the lake surrounded by a farming community just 15 minutes outside of the small historic town of Hartwell. We have convenience both on and off the water with access to all of the surrounding amenities from the nearby boat ramp, marina, state park, and small town contrasted with the serene views and quite of the lake. Our property is situated on a cul-de-sak with woods and gardens creating a private setting. The cove opens to a larger part of the lake with beautiful views and great water. In the mornings you can enjoy watching the sunrise while sipping on a cup of coffee from the boat dock, or beautiful screened in porch. We enjoy taking walks down to the boat ramp where there is a public boat dock and access to the lake for pulling boats in and out of the water. The boat ramp is convenitently close within minutes, and once you are on the water our dock sits around the point which keeps it quite and free from traffic. Nearby Hartwell Marina has a boat store, grill, and is open for public refueling on the water. During the summer months, the Marina is also home to local bands and weekend shows accessible by boat, or car. Lake Hartwell covers a land area of 56,000 acres and has a shoreline of 962 miles. Unlike some of the smaller lakes nearer Atlanta, Lake Hartwell is neither crowded nor contaminated. On most days, including holidays we find ourselves alone on the lake secluded, visiting islands and treasure hunting as our boys have come to know it. We are located in some of the best water on the lake with depths of 65 feet in the channel as you leave the cove into the main body of water with depths of over 200 feet as you approach the Hartwell Dam just minutes away by boat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A few things that make our lake home unique is the beautiful screened in porch and adjoing sunroom with bar, fireplace, and oversized table that sits 8-10 people with plenty of room for others in the kitchen and on the patio. We built the home with access to the lake and enjoyment of the outdoors top of mind. The floor plan is open with serene views and access to the outside from nearly every room. The kitchen, sunroom, and screened porch all have doorways that lead onto the open patio area in the back of the home nearest the lake. The patio is fully equipped with umbrella table, chairs, and grills; a children's playground complete with a sand pile, slide, fort, and swings; and, a rustic fire pit for making smores, or enjoying a late night fire and glass of wine. The dock can fit a boat up to 26' and has a large swim platform complete with table, chairs, and plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the sun and swimming in the lake. There is a kayak / paddle board on the dock along with life jackets available for your use along with many other toys and necessities for your enjoyment on the lake.
