Enjoy a vacation in a wonderful, custom built home that is designed to help you forget the pressures of everyday life. From the moment you walk into the house, you'll have the feeling that you're someplace special. The interior of the home is all woody textures and smells. There is virtually no paint. Just beautiful wood from floor to ceiling. Ample living spaces provide room for everyone. A screened in veranda is the perfect place for games or late night conversations. The multi-sectional deck across the back of the house provides room for grilling, outdoor dining, reading or working on your tan. Or go down to the dock and spend some time in the sun.
You can launch your boat at a public ramp just minutes away. And once you're on the lake you can explore it's 900+ miles of coastline. All in all, it's a great place to rest and to play.
My family recently spent Christmas at this cabin. We were looking for a place that was affordable for a family with 3 college students , but also one that was nice. This cabin was perfect. THis house is very comfortable and has everything one could need. The sound system/tv was incredible. We loved playing the games that were there (which we did a lot because it rained for 2 days). The kitchen was fully stocked. I was a little concerned since I would be making Christmas dinner there, but I didn't need to be worried. We loved the fireplace and it made for a very cozy Christmas Eve. We were happy to see the sun on Christmas and found a local waterfall which we drove to and hiked and then that night we stargazed. The number of stars was incredible.
I was a little concerned about the driveway because of other reviews, but if you follow Chris's directions that he sends there is no problem. We have a very old Honda Odyssey and it had no issues and neither did my husband's sedan. THe only driving issue is that if you have a low car don't take the adventurous route and go through the stream. Take the other way to the cabin. Chris explains all this in the directions.
I cannot recommend this cabin enough. I"m already thinking about when I can come back either with my family or just my husband for a retreat
Breathtaking the best way to describe the cabin. Both inside and out better than the pictures portray. Everything you could possibly need was available. The decor was amazing. This is a place to go for relaxation and family bonding time. Not alot to do in the area. But, we did spend a day on the lake which was awesome. Renting from Chris was like renting from family. He made sure everything was just right. We definitely plan to return. We had 3 teenagers with us and i thought they might get bored, but they did not want to leave.
Booking: Chris was VERY accommodating and always quick in replying. He gave us directions to the cabins and instructions on everything we needed once we got there.
Getting There: It was not hard to find and only 30 minutes from Clemson. We were lucky to stay here for our son's graduation.
Our Stay: We felt like the owner's had just left and we were staying in their home! It was decorated beautifullly and they even had soaps and shampoos, throw blankets, games, musical instruments, and the kitchen had everything you needed. The beds were all comfy and everything felt very clean. We were wondering how old the house was because it feels like new. The pictures don't do it justice. The master bedrooom and sunroom have vaulted ceilings and the masterbath is quite big. Oh, and the house next door that you can see in the pictures is hidden now by trees. It feels very private. The gas grill outside was great. Everyone loved the sunroom and we even forgot to open the windows for the breeze. The walk to the lake is a little steep though for anyone that has difficulty walking, but all the properties were steep.
Things to do: We actually caught some Bass! If we can, you can! You could even see big ones swimming around the dock. The Exxon has live bait and supplies (rods are $25). We also rented a boat from Harbor Light Marina which is very close by. Plot your destinations on your phone GPS though! The lake is huge. Tubing was great (we brought our own.) The kids loved swimming off the dock. Bring some floats and stuff; our kids liked having their lifejackets on. We didn't get to see the nearby waterfalls, but that sounded fun.
Final Comments: I felt so strongly about recommending this house, that I had to type this review twice after the first one locked up! I wish we could have stayed longer and I want to go back!
What a tremendous cabin. Visited our son at Clemson and did not want to pay for overpriced hotels again. This cabin was perfect. It is well decorated, well stocked and very comfortable.
The driveway presented a small challenge for our Honda Accord but it is not impossible at all.
Very comfortable beds and living room. Sitting on the dock by the water was so serene.
Chris, the owner, was very helpful with directions and instructions for how to get to the house and how to work everything in the house. Make sure you read the instructions and you will not have any problems.
We will definitely stay here again.
We have been renting cabins in both Tennessee and South Carolina for over 20 years now and have used VRBO for the last several years. This cabin is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. It was very clean and had everything we needed right down to little bottles of shampoo and body wash (I've never seen that in a VRBO cabin before). Plenty of games and puzzles kept us busy even though the weather was rainy. The screened porch is incredible and very relaxing we spent lots of time just sitting on the comfy furniture talking. All the beds are in great shape and we slept very well. If you are looking for accomodations for your family in the Hartwell area this cabin is the one you want. Highly recommended.
This is a great place to stay and had everything you would for a good time ,the cabin was as described and was clean and pleasant.The walk to the lake was not very steep as some lake property. nice area of lake hartwell, Chris is very nice and does what he says he will do for you to have a good time . I would recommend to anyone for a very nice place to stay.
