Hartwell Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Lone Star Cabin is located at the end of a private gravel street on a quiet cove of Lake Hartwell in Martin, Georgia. The lake is perfect for kids big and small, who want to go boating, fishing, swimming, and exploring. The wood cabin with 3 decks and wood stove surrounded by natural vegetation allow you to get back to nature the old fashioned way. Some other favorite activities we enjoy at the cabin are roasting marshmallows by the fire at night, catching fireflies or baby frogs (which come out by the dozens in springtime), or picking blackberries by the road if in season. If you want a break from your kids saying they are bored, then you have found the right place!

This newer vacation home has 4 bedrooms, and 2.5 baths and boast four separate deck areas, indoor and outdoor living areas, granite in all bathrooms, fire pit, and lots of games and activities for adults and little ones.

It has a master on main off the kitchen, with a king bed, and adjoining master bath. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, and one full bath. The upstairs bedrooms are: one queen bdrm, one bunk bed (twin over full) bdrm., and one bdrm. w/futon/TV/playroom. The house itself if fully equipped with wifi and satellite TV so your vacation stay will be as enjoyable as possible. Some of the extras our home offers are: a ping pong table and dart board (bring your own darts) in the unfinished basement; a game and craft armoire; Little Tykes kitchen & toys; an outside living area on the covered porch, where smoking is welcome; as well as a large fire pit for roasting s'mores outside. Bring your movies and books for a relaxing getaway from everyday life.

Eastanolee Creek, around the bend from our cove, is known for some of the best fishing in the Southeast. Within a 5-10 minute drive, you will find 3 boat launches and Tugaloo State Park on Lake Hartwell. Within a 20 minute drive you will find great antiquing, hiking, waterfalls, shops, restaurants and golf.

Dogs are welcome with prior approval and a pet fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Megan,



We LOVED your cabin! The location was absolutely perfect for my 30th birthday weekend-getaway. The back porch was great for drinking coffee and catching up with friends and family. The firepit was just what I was looking for - some warmth on a chilly October night, and a great setting for playing some guitar and singing songs. We played a few good games of ping pong, and had an absolute blast taking the pedal boat out on the water. I don't think we could stop laughing on that pedal boat :) THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Lone Star Family: We are a family of 5 from Alpharetta, GA (Atlanta), about 1.5 hours away. Ed and Megan, originally from Texas, named the house after their home state. We have 3 kids, ages 14, 9, and 4; as well as 2 small dogs, so the house is definitely kid and pet friendly.

Megan Atherton purchased this house in 2005

We love the North Georgia area and enjoy spending our free weekends on Lake Hartwell. Martin, GA is just far enough away, that we can drive it easily in under 2 hrs. from our home in Alpharetta, but feel like we are really getting away from the city. The house gives us the mountain feel, with the bonus of the nearby lake to enjoy.

Two of our favorite things our family enjoys are frog/toad catching and berry picking in the spring, when the tiny frogs are everywhere and the wild blackberries are abundant. The kids love to fish and explore and go on scavenger hunts. Fall is our favorite time to spend up there with cooler weather, bonfires, and the leaves changing colors. For water fun, we enjoy pedal boating, skiing, and wakeboarding, but mostly just tying up to our friends' boats and hanging out/swimming in the water.

Perfect

My son and I were brainstorming on what to do the weekend my wife was hosting a baby shower for his first born. We decided a “Boys Weekend” on a lake somewhere was the ticket. Since we are not very good planners, the day before we were to depart we started looking. As faith would have it, the Lone Star Cabin was available! I contacted Megan and we were in! The Dogs too!

Joe and I (and Abel and Elvis) got to the cabin and we were greeted with warmth and peace and quiet! The Cabin is comfortable and very well maintained. We enjoyed the fishing on the dock and some great walks. There is nothing bad to say about this place. A short drive from ATL and we felt as if we were the only ones there.

The Lone star house will hold a special place in my heart as I was able to spend the time with my son as he awaits the arrival of first child in August!

Thanks Megan for the life long memory!

Dave and Joe
Abel and Elvis too!

I met friends at this wonderful cabin for a weekend get together. We had such a wonderful time! The home has everything you would need for a vacation getaway. Comfy beds, wonderful clean accomodations, beautiful view, quiet location.
The weather was perfect for wine by the firepit at night and coffee on the covered porch in the morning. I would highly recommend this secluded get away!

Great Weekend for Our Entire Family!

  • 5 of 5
My extended family had a wonderful time at the Lone Star Lake House on Lake Hartwell as we wanted to find a large cabin on the lake while in town attending both the Clemson University and Toccoa Falls College graduations. The home truly exceeded all of our expectations! It was beautifully decorated, clean and had all the modern conveniences of home. The weather was beautiful during our stay and we spent a lot of time enjoying the large porch on the back of the house that overlooks the lake while our sons had a wonderful time on the paddleboat. I would definitely recommend staying at the Lone Star Lake House. In fact, we hope to plan a return trip in the future!

Relaxing Weekend on the Lake

  • 5 of 5
The house, location, and view were terrific. There is a boat launch less than 10 minutes away and a marina to rent pontoon boats about 25 minutes away. We grilled on the huge deck and made s'mores in the fire pit. The street and portion of the lake were very private. And we LOVED the fact that the house was pet friendly!
