About Gary Goff
We bought this house for our eventual retirement, so we would have a chance to return home to Georgia more often. Because we currently work and live in Ohio with our two children, we felt that investing in a future retirement lake house was a great way to see our family more and build memories with our kids while they are still young.
Gary Goff purchased this House in 2016
Why Gary Goff chose Hartwell
We chose Lake Hartwell because it is a beautiful lake situated between two unique college towns and is perfect for both fishing and recreational boating. One of the reasons why we chose this house is because we wanted a place that would comfortably accommodate multiple friends and family members and provide a great space for entertaining. Lastly, we were looking for a place in the city of Hartwell because we wanted to offer guests the convenience of being centrally located to local shops and amenities.
What makes this House unique
You may notice if you rent the house that it is named Paula's Place. We recently lost my husband's mom to cancer, and she always dreamed of owning a house by the water when she retired. We were so upset that she never realized her dream, that we took the risk and bought this house--fulfilling a lifelong dream of hers and ours. We ultimately chose this particular house after falling in love with both the look of it inside and outside, the open gazebo/fire pit area in the front, and its views of the lake from every bedroom.

Always a great experience!
This was our 2nd time staying at Gary's house and it was just as great as the first time! They are very easy to work with, respond quickly, and the house is always in great shape with everything we need. It is a very comfortable place to stay and unfortunately we've only stayed in the winter, but I am sure this would be an amazing place to spend a week or weekend in the summer! We look forward to coming back soon!
Cute place for a girls weekend away!
Loved the side porch, really relaxing even on a rainy day. Great fire pit and swings too!
We had a hard time finding the house at first with our GPS directions. We dead ended into another home's driveway instead of following the road to a sharp right just before the neighbor's house. It would be better to drive to the Grizzly home for the first time with daylight.
Great place to relax!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Very tasteful decor and roomy house to enjoy our lake adventures!
Great house and well stocked kitchen. Quiet cove with ramp nearby.
This house is a perfect getaway for a weekend on the lake or to take in a football game at nearby Clemson. The house is very nicely laid out with bedrooms on all 3 floors, this allowed our group of 3 separate families feel like we had our own space and also made putting the kids to bed easier. The house is well equipped with games, kitchen supplies, and lake activity equipment. The town of Hartwell is a very short drive with everything you need from decent grocery stores, good restaurants, and parks to take the kids to. The house was clean and the owner communication was excellent. If we find ourselves in the Hartwell area again we will definitely consider staying here again.
My friends and I had a lovely weekend. Just wish the weather had been a little cooler so we could have used the fire pit. I think the only thing we wished for about the house was that there were more coffee cups!
