About Shirley Warren
This candid photo is one of many family gatherings for our Christmas celebrations. It's an awesome destination, no matter the season. This property was purchased by our dad and a couple of his brothers before Hartwell Lake was created. They bought a total of 5 acres, but now only about 2.5ac remains in the Bolt family names. The log cabin was built in 1983 by our mom and 4 siblings. The 4 siblings live in S.C., GA.,TN and N.C. "The Lake" has become our homeplace and is an easy 2-3 hour drive for each of us. Our mom lived here until approximately 2006 when, at the age of 92, she moved in with a daughter. There are generations of cherished memories here and we hope you will make some for you and your friends and families as well.
Shirley Warren purchased this Cabin in 1961
Why Shirley Warren chose Westminster
It's location for a relaxing get-away is terrific! In the boonies but not that far from Seneca, Clemson, Anderson,SC or Toccoa, Commerce, GA. There's Tabor Ramp just around the bend for launching your water craft.
What makes this Cabin unique
I have been to many beautiful areas of the world and only some private areas of Hawaii(a little more expensive!)offer the peace and calm of this lake property for me. In the quiet morning hours we often sit on the swing facing the open fields and woods(deer and wild turkeys visit often) in the winter time, enjoying our morning coffee. In the summer, we move to the other corner swing and watch the mirror-like smooth lake surface begin to ripple with the gentle breeze or a passing boat. One of our fisherman friends thought he'd be glued to the dock all weekend but once he sat on the porch, he was entranced and only visited the dock.

Perfect 3 Day Getaway
Shirley was very prompt and helpful when we reached out to book a staff retreat. The property was exactly as described and a perfect location on the water. If you're looking for a great Lake Hartwell trip, this is the place to stay!
Thank you for your kind words! We are always delighted when others enjoy our special place. It is a good getaway...no WiFi and limited cell service...a real escape from the rat race of life! Thank you!
Such a beautiful home and view.
My whole family had a great time. The kids played in the lake and set up our volleyball net in the front yard. Loved the dock for the boat, swimming and fishing. There is no phone service or WiFi but that is the point of getting away. I hope to be able to go back one day.
We are delighted you all had a good time! It is my favorite place to relax...no cell phone to answer! Thank you for your kind words and I hope you can return. Shirley
I loved being right on the lake. Fun cabin experience and a little on the rustic side.
Great place! We had a great time for sure! I think it could use a little updating, and may be due for a pesticide treatment as well, but we were really happy with how well this place accommodated our families. No WiFi was a surprise for us, but we didn’t mind since we were only there a short time.
We had a wonderful time here! So relaxing on the wrap around porch. The one thing I would change is more rocking chairs on the porch! A group of 9 women stayed here & we had plenty of room. The weather was perfect. Hope to stay here again. Shirley was a great hostess & very prompt to answer our questions.
We are so glad you enjoyed your getaway! I thank you for your kind words and look forward to hearing from you again soon!
Wonderful, my family and I had a great time for Thanksgiving, my 98 year old grandma loved the house and the view. I highly recommend this place plenty of seating, lots of towels, wash clothes. I loved the porch swing just looking out at the lake. I will definitely have to book again for another family event. Very peaceful and calming away from the commotion of city noise and phones ringing every second of the day. Thanks for sharing your space with my family.
I appreciate all your kind words and your taking the time to write a review. I wish I could go there more often myself...a great place to "get way"! So glad your Grandma enjoyed the view of the lake. All the seasons have their own special beauty. Hope you can come back sometime! Thank you!
Clean and comfortable home.
Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, large living room & a wonderful wrap around porch. Have your family prepared to be unplugged from their contacts ( a good thing ) no wifi and even our family from the area did not have cell phone service, we did have wonderful family time though!
We will definitely keep Westminster in mind, next time we vacation on Lake Hartwell.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I am glad you enjoyed some quality family time. Cell service is getting better in that area and when it arrives, part of me will be sad that some of the "get-away" will be gone! Thanks!
Clemson University is only about 25 miles away. Outlet shopping is just south on I-85 in Commerce,GA. Our cousin's cabin is also available on VRBO next door if additional space is needed(VRBO # 515207).
The Chattooga River nearby, the river called crown jewel of the southeast, is undammed and remains the only river East of the Mississippi that hosts commercial rafting while bearing the national designation of a Wild and Scenic River. Your challenge, to raft the roaring Chattooga whitewater in Georgia and South Carolina where the movie "Deliverance" was filmed.
