Overview

Hartwell Lake House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 13 in beds. Two roll-away beds

Are you ready for SOME FOOTBALL? Watch EVERY NFL game this season in our large media room equipped with 8 Lazy Boy chairs. We provide the complete NFL Sunday Ticket program! Watch your favorite college games, too. And we have 7 other flat screen TV’s with 236 satellite stations to select from.

Waterford Lodge is an authentic log home right on LAKE HARTWELL, complete with ALL the modern conveniences that you would expect in a luxury lake resort destination. It’s located less than 2 hours from downtown Atlanta, but it feels like it’s a million miles away from all the hustle and bustle. Maybe our NEW EIGHT PERSON HOT TUB has something to do with that! It is cleaned and comfort balanced for each individual visit.

You enter the grounds through the stone and iron gates into a treed lake setting that is private, but not isolated. The Lodge has four complete master bedrooms with private baths and it will sleep 15 people comfortably. The master bedroom bathroom on the main floor even includes a seated steam shower, so kick back and pamper yourself for a change! The terrace level is equipped with a custom-made bar constructed from real pine logs, a second living area with flat screen TV, and a cozy master bedroom with full bath. And don’t worry if you get a little rain, because the home has a complete entertainment and media room with Lazy Boy theatre seating. We even provide over 50 DVD movie selections for your viewing enjoyment. Or you can try your hand at Karaoke, board games, croquette, billiards, ping pong and MORE! It is the PERFECT place to spend a full-fledged resort-style vacation or you can simply enjoy a fantastic long weekend get-away.

The fully equipped kitchen has it all……complete with specialty cookware and flatware……even a Margarita Machine! Just bring some clothes and some food and enjoy your getaway. If you forget something, you can pick it up along with miscellaneous sundries at the local Calico Store and bait shop. For those “Grilling Enthusiasts”…….we have a nice new stainless grill to cook up those family barbeque recipes on.

The Lodge is perfect for football fanatics in the fall and for swimmers, skiers, wake borders and children of all ages in the warmer months. Want some exercise? Jump onto one of three mountain bikes that are tuned and ready to go. Look out back through our 6ft panoramic windows in the low light of early morning or late evening and you might steal a glimpse at some deer gathered around our deer feeder in the woods! The bird feeder just outside the family room windows is always an area of interest.

We also have a 25 foot Pioneer pontoon boat for rent! It seats 12. And the rental fee is 15% less then that of the local marina. Or you can bring YOUR boat or jet-ski and tie it up on our private dock. The boat launch is just a few miles away. With a DEEP WATER, floating 2-slip dock, we’re on a part of Lake Hartwell that is active but not too busy….it’s just right. Bring your fishing gear and cast out into one of the better fishing lakes in Georgia. You can Google our area guides that have some great half and full day rates to insure that you’ll come back to fry up a whole stringer full of stripers or crappie. Or just fish with the kids right off the dock. One guest caught a 5 lb. bass from the dock this year.

We’re also close enough to head over to The Curahee Golf and Tennis Club, home of one of the ten most scenic golf courses in Georgia. And the Club is a great place for fine dining, too or you can take a half hour drive to Andersonville, SC. You will find

culinary excellence there to satisfy every taste.

Downtown Toccoa is about 20 minutes away. They have a grocery store in addition to restaurants, banks, package stores, etc. There is an adorable downtown street with art galleries, a few cute shops and stores that any antiquary would enjoy. Also in Toccoa is a Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant, a nail salon, a Sally Beauty Supply and more.

The mountain town of Helen GA is a famous German hamlet that is about an hour away where you can tube down the Chattahoochee River, zip-line or just watch the tubers floating by while you enjoy a beverage and some live music. Oktoberfest in Helen is a HOOT, but the area hosts year round activities and family enjoyment. You can also go white water rafting on the Chattooga River and/or explore the 3 waterfalls at Brass Town Falls.

We are 45 minutes from either University of Georgia or Clemson. So come on over for the best little football party you ever imagined!

All facets of your stay are covered in our complete handbook that you get when

check in, along with your complimentary gift for telling your friends about the GREAT times you had at THE WATERFORD LODGE. Check out the schedule below and

BOOK EARLY……..you’ll love this place!

About Chrystal Stachura

Hi there! We don't get away much. So when we do, it's gotta be WORTH IT! One weekend we had time to visit friends at this very house on Lake Hartwell. We had a great time on the water and that evening we sang and danced and laughed during our own little concert in the media room. We fell in love with this home. Now it's ours! We still love it and we hope you will too!

Chrystal Stachura purchased this house in 2012

Why Chrystal Stachura chose Hartwell Lake

We chose this location due to its proximity to metro Atlanta as well as the fact we have never seen a log house so authentic and modernly functional at the same time. It's close to white water rafting the Chattooga River, the tourist town of Helen, GA; the Tanger Outlet stores and then Anderson, SC for traditional mall shopping.

What makes this house unique

When you are inside Waterford Lodge, you know you're in a log cabin. There are no sheetrock walls. It is all log cabin and it feels and smells sooo good. There are trees everywhere and is a great place for the lake and just for a cabin getaway. Great for a girls weekend get away or a family week at the lake. Ask about renting our 25' pontoon boat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time by all family members. Everything was clean, well-stocked and plenty of room for everyone. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfectly Suited

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house as a location to gather our family in celebration of my daughter’s graduation from Clemson. We had a group of 12 ranging in age from 10 to 74 and all had an exceptional time. The house was very well equipped and well laid out for our purposes. There were plenty of entertainment options from the pool table and media room to the fire pit. Even had room in the backyard to set up our corn hole boards for a nice family tournament.

We rented the pontoon boat as well and really enjoyed our tours of the lake. We even had a chance to get in a little fishing for those that wanted. The house is located on a very peaceful part of the lake. Sitting on the dock in the mornings don’t be surprised to see heron, geese, ducks and even a few deer visit the lake.

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to get together with family in celebration of my daughter’s graduation.

Lake Hartwell Log Home. 5 stars

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this home. It was spotless and the only thing that was a little tricky was the start button on the dishwasher,but once t starts it cleans beautifully .(I have the same one at my home.) Every time I looked in the kitchen for an item, lo and behold... there it was. Wonderfully stocked kitchen and home.WE loved the fireplace on porch and the fire pit as well. The boat was in great shape and we were sad to not be able to use it more due to rainy and cold weather. The home theatre was a huge hit for everyone. Even the path down through the beautifully wooded back yard to the dock is lighted and well maintained.We look very forward to renting again and I have no doubt that this is the nicest VRBO anywhere near Lake Hartwell. Wonderful family time. :)

New Years Eve rental 2013

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house and will definitely rent it again. It had everything you could ask for to make it feel like home. There were plenty of towels for everyone including beach towels for the hot tub. The kitchen is fully stocked with very nice dishes and tons of serving pieces. They even had all the extra kitchen equipment you would have in your own kitchen! (Ex: They had an XL crock pot that we used for a Boston Butt and two griddles for bacon.) The only thing we found to be missing was a pizza cutter and the only thing we found that didn't work was the blender! We had 4 couples plus kids staying in the house and still felt that we had plenty of room! There was even plenty of firewood, which we didn't know ahead of time so we had all packed our own. It appears to stay booked because we weren't able to check in early or stay late, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend this for any large group.

Keepin it Real

AWESOME!! No other word describes the great time my family and I had at the cabin. The pictures of the cabin does not do it justice. It was clean, soft beds and fresh linen.
