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.

Excellent Accomodations

Very clean and well stocked house. We were in town for a fishing tournament and had plenty of room to park the boats and trucks at the house.

Excellent Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 adults and 3 children under 10 and everyone had a great time. The boats were perfect for what we needed (skiing & tubing) and the cove was relatively quiet. House was furnished with everything we needed and more. And the owners were extremely responsive. Thank You Grizzles!
