Wonderful weekend in a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything our group needed! The kitchen had all items necessary and a big refrigerator accommodated the food for our large group. The charcoal grill served us well and in the evening we were able to make a bonfire with wood found around the property. Relaxing in the comfortable living room area, with games of ping pong, and outside was great. The dock had plenty of chairs to sit while the water was deep enough to swim and dive in all day!

Great Location on Lake Hartwell

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family vacation and the Hartwell Lake Poker Run. The house is very large, extremely well stocked, had everything we needed, and is on a beautiful, quiet cove on the lake. We skiied and swam right from the dock. The golf cart and paved path to the dock were awesome, although the walk is short anyway. Lots of parking in the driveway for vehicles and trailers. Launch ramp 1/4 mile away was very nice. Small town of Lavonia right nearby was great. The owners were very nice and extremely accommodating. Would definitely book again!

Very nice lake front home. We had a fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

Very large and clean lake front home that we used for a weekend college graduation celebration for our daughter. The home was perfect for what we needed. The owners were prompt to respond before and during stay. We needed a later check out time, and the owners graciously accommodated. I would definitely recommend this property.
