Please speak with owners, however, regarding negotiated rates based on the number in your party and length of stay.

This is a fabulous home for entertaining or simply relaxing with a cup of coffee taking in the sunrise, taking a dip in the glorious lake, which is fabulously clean and seasonally warm (we have picky swimmers in our family who typically only like swimming in pools, and everyone loves to swim in Lake Hartwell!).

You and your guests can enjoy a glass of wine in front of the fire or out on the deck overlooking the beautiful sunsets of Lake Hartwell, pajama nights watching movies in the fabulously comfy media room or enjoy music and Smore's at the outdoor fire pit overlooking the lake.

Pets, with additional fees and upon owner approvals, are welcomed.

There is a fenced back yard as well as large front yard and a beautiful neighborhood for evening and morning walks. Hiking is nearby. There's a great steak and seafood restaurant nearby in Lavonia...

There is a private boat dock at lakeside for boating and swimming. We ask potential renters to research lake levels at Lake Hartwell, the 2016/2017 year is at an extremely low drought levels, while the home is indeed lakeside, we have elected this year to dock our boat at the local marina: Harbor Lights Marina #(706) 356-4119. We will, however, be able to easily "beach" our pontoon boat and wave runner on the shore of our home until lake levels are higher. They have boat and wave runner rentals available there for your use as well.

We ask that our guests take care of our home, respecting it as if it were their own:)

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay with a large group of 15 people. The house fit us all perfectly and offered plenty of entertainment! The home was clean and well stocked with just about anything you could need. The only thing that could have made it any better would be a more inviting dock - that being said it still got the job done and we loved our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your fabulous review! Lake Hartwell is a Federal Lake and maintains very strict dock standards; we have the largest dock available to us per code. We easily park our 24’ pontoon boat and jet ski at the dock and it has water, power and a hose. We have requested larger dock approval in the past, however, the Core of Enhineeres will not allow a larger dock at this time. What we’ve found the last 10 years is that it is a great property and can easily accommodate up to 20 people. We loved hosting your group and we hope you will all return next year! We have a lot of repeat renters every year and happily provide a repeat guest discount:)

Amazing house! Made wonderful memories here!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! We can’t say enough good things about it. It was clean, spacious and seconds from a great dock. They had pretty much everything you could think of. More than enough towels, blankets and even had extra toiletries if you forgot any.

You can tell the owners stay here themselves and it’s not just a rental property. It’s obvious They take great pride in this property. The kids had a great time using the jacuzzi and the basketball hoop outside. They had Various games and a great theater room where kids could play video games. The backyard was spectacular. It was enclosed so we felt safe leaving the kids out there to play . The owners were easy to communicate with and quick to respond to questions..

Again, we loved loved this property. We made some wonderful memories here. We hope we can make return visits down the line.

Thank you for a great Labor Day weekend Mr. and Mrs. Callaway!

What more can you ask for?!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! The spacious house easily accommodated our group of 12 adults + 4 kids and 2 dogs. We arrived in the evening during a heavy downpour, and immediately noticed the wonderful covered entryway that allowed us to unload without getting soaked! The driveway provided more than enough space to park 6 cars. The kitchen was well stocked, and between the large dining room table, eat in kitchen table, and table on the balcony, had ample space for our group to eat. The master bathroom is AMAZING! We appreciated the abundance of bathrooms, as well as bath and beach towels, and the toiletries provided. The kids had a blast wandering the house and finding the lollipops in all the bathrooms :) Also great to have a room for the kids with twin beds and pack n plays provided (you may want to update the listing since there is no longer a crib)! There were a few baby gates around the house too. The media room, board games, puzzles, and pool/ping pong tables are all wonderful additions - we did take advantage since we had a rainy day during our stay.

Moving outdoors, we loved that both porches were covered, and the hot tub was lovely - kids loved the waterfall and rainbow lights! The large yard was great for the dogs and kids to run around, and we so appreciated it being fenced in. Definitely provided peace of mind to keep both the kids and dogs safe! The dock was great and we enjoyed lots of time on the lake on our pontoon rental. Nice to have some inflatables provided too!

Finally, communication with the owners was great, and they were readily available. The AC in the basement went out, and they had someone out there to fix it the same day. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
