Jack Massey purchased this house in 2004

Why Jack Massey chose Hartwell Lake

My wife and I were looking for a tranquil lake setting within a short distance from Atlanta. Lake Hartwell offered us the perfect setting less than 2 hours from the busy days in Atlanta. Once we saw TRANQUILITY BASE we knew we had found the Lake Home of our dreams.

The peace and quite of lake living. Once you turn down the driveway, the stress and hussle of the big city quickly goes away. Tranquility Base, is truly the most 'relaxing home on the lake'.

I wish I could live there forever......

  • 5 of 5

At the last minute my Fiance and I decided we should go to Georgia for Christmas. This vacation would serve as my introduction to his family and as a much needed time away from the cold of Colorado. My initial conversation with Jack and all that followed were nothing short of convincing that “Tranquility Base” was the house for us during this important vacation. Jack and his wife were so understanding of course, that we wouldn’t have the payment and deposit to them 30 days prior to our stay, because we were booking with less than 30 days left, but we got it to them as fast as regular mail would allow. Check in time at “Tranquility Base “ is normally 1600, The Massey’s were aware that we were traveling from Colorado and due to arrive in Georgia around 11 am on the 25th of December and without having to ask, we were given permission to check in by noon. We found this very accommodating. With the purpose of this vacation causing me much anxiety, I was so pleased to arrive and find this lovely home exactly as we’d expected, very spacious and clean. I can not fail to mention how nicely decorated and well stocked it was with everything you would have at your own home, minus food, but we handled that. We even had treats on the counter, with a very thoughtful welcome note. Taking full advantage of all of the amenities, we had very little idle time. We fished, BBQ’d, made smores, played games, and just enjoyed each other. The visit with my new family was wonderful and I believe that “Tranquility Base” played a very important part in making it so. I’d secretly wished we didn’t have to leave and that this was our home, but we do have future plans to return.

Wonderful weekend with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent the weekend at Tranquility Base with our family and close friends. The house and location were excellent. The owners were AMAZING and so easy to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We had 4 adults and 5 kids at the house and there was more than enough space for everyone. Everything was clean and the house had everything we needed. The back porch was amazing....I could have sat out there for days. We enjoyed a beautiful fall evening around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. We would highly recommend Tranquility Base!!

Tranquility Base - Can't Wait To Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

We expected a relaxing weekend and OH, did we have one! This home has all the amenities that you can imagine. The comfort of a home away from home and a view to die for! We went there with another family and we are already planning another get-away to Tranquility Base. Thank you, Tranquility Base! We returned to the city refreshed, relaxed, and renewed after our weekend. We can't wait to go back!

50th anniversary family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility Base was wonderful for our large family who came from all over to be with us. The inside of the house was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. Jack and Adrienne were amazing in their communications with us and in the welcome that we had waiting on us when we got to the house. Several loaves of homemade bread were in a basket on the kitchen counter. (These were consumed in no time). The kitchen was very well furnished and the second refrigerator downstairs was put to good use for drinks and snacks. The layout of the house was conducive to a large number of people with 8 kids ranging in age from 2 and 1/2 to 17. They loved the big room downstairs. And we all enjoyed the firepit outside, making s'mores and telling tales. The bedrooms were spacious and beautifully appointed. One of the things that helped us was the blow up mattress which we used downstairs and the water toys and the big tube that we pulled behind the boat which we rented from Jack's neighbor. The dock was used to see how far people, large and small, could jump into the lake and to fish. Some of our little ones caught fish which was so exciting for them. The water was deep and clean - one of the reasons I love Lake Hartwell. The boat traffic was at a minimum which is always good when you are in the big portion of the lake. Any time I had questions, Jack was just a call away. Andrienne and Jack went out of their way to be helpful and make this a family vacation to remember. I would highly recommend this beautiful property to anyone.

Our Family's Long Weekend at Tranquility Base

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tranquility Base from 9-18 through 9-20/2014.

The house was really terrific, very roomy, and was the perfect size for our 10 person family.

We had a lot of family fun just kicking back and relaxing, cooking out, playing games, and watching college football on TV.

Also, my son, and son-in-law had fun just fishing at night off the well-lighted boat dock....they even caught some fairly sizeable catfish.
