About Dan Garland

We are a family of 6 that all enjoy the Lake Property with different eyes. 2 College students; one High school and one elementary and Cosmo the dog (our best listener).

Dan Garland purchased this House in 2006

Why Dan Garland chose Lavonia

Our family enjoys spending time at Tugaloo Heights. My 11 year old enjoys swimming around, under, and jumping off the dock. The water current is constant (no rapids), and helps to keep the water clear. My daughter enjoys being able to wakeboard in front of the dock, so all of her fans can see. Family and friends (toddlers) enjoy the 450' of sandy beach to walk in the water beach. There is no lake muck on this beach! Michelle (my wife) enjoys floating in the water and laying on the large sun area on the dock. I like the fact that you are not on top of the neighbors. You have room to strech out.

What makes this House unique

Incredible Décor; Desk upstairs in the master bedroom for working from home. Upgraded Wifi - Detached Gameroom for nightowls - Clean, clear, lake water, No stagnant, cove, with no seaweed touching your feet!

                                                Nice relaxing family vacation week at the lake

                                                Sherry M.

                                                We had a very nice time at lake house. We spent most of our time on the dock and swimming. We rented a wave runner and explored the lake which was beautiful. We didnt use the carriage house at all but the golf cart was very convenient for getting our things to the dock.

                                                Spring weekend at the lake

                                                Michelle B.

                                                It was perfect house for my family. My son brought two of his fraternity brothers SAE. The game room detached was perfect for the late owls. The dock was amazing for our whole family spending the weekend. The house was clean and well designed with two room upstairs and 2 at the bottom level. We will be back.

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                Thanks Michelle for your stay. We were up there last week and we shampoo'ed the carpets, cut some trees, and washed the dock. There is 12' of water under our dock. The beach was perfect for a campfire. We left wood on the beach for the next guest. The cleaning company will be in there next week to get the house ready for the season. Thanks again.

                                                Not Good

                                                Laurens F.Pawleys Island, S.C.

                                                I would not recommend this property. The property has maintenance issues, it was not clean, and personal items outdoors and in the adjacent game room were out of place. The most disappointing issue was the cleanliness. My wife had to clean the house and she vacumned a lot of dog hair from both the upstairs and downstairs before we could use the property. Carpets were dirty. The adjacent game room was very humid and mildew obvious. Pool table was unplayable as the felt was torn. I would not recommend this property to any traveler.

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                I am sorry for your unpleasant experience. We have notified the cleaning company regarding the dog hair and the issue has been addressed.

                                                Regarding personal items in the game room - we do leave out blow up water toys, a hockey rod game and we have a washer and dryer that is up there that will be used to change out (in the corner). Yes, the pool table is older (happily well used). We also have old style TV's (but who goes to the lake to watch TV.

                                                Lake House

                                                Chad C.

                                                House is in a convenient place on the lake - close to Harbor Light Marina and an easy drive into Hartwell to shop.

                                                The layout of the house was great for families with the 2 bedrooms on the third floor, living area on the 2nd floor and 2 bedrooms in the walk out basement. Dan was very responsive and provided a full walk through of the property when we arrived.

                                                The dock and beach area is fantastic - we spent most of our time down there and had a great time.

                                                The house is quite a walk from the dock (the golf cart was broken) and you can barely see the water from the house. The house does need some TLC - landscaping is very overgrown and not maintained and it is time for a deep cleaning of the baseboards, blinds, etc.

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                Thank you for the 4 out of 5 stars. The time on the dock is always amazing. We just spent a week there and it was a BLAST! I tend to spend all year long looking back at those memories and pictures.

                                                Thank you for taking the time to point out the three issues. I want you to feel confident that they are being addressed IMMEDIATELY. First, Foster Lawn care will be there this afternoon (7-30) to trim the bushes and cut back growth around the edges of the property; The owner of Goodyear cleaning will be at the house to inspect after it is cleaned (there is a check out today). The house was repainted over the winter and I will send back the painter if needed. Finally, the golf cart was sent to the repair shop on Tuesday (3 week back log).

                                                My goal is to get that 5th star in your review for next year. As you stated, I am very aggressive in making sure all issues are addressed.

                                                Thanks again, and I hope you smile all year long at the memories you made with your family.

                                                See you next year,
