Overview

Lavonia House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our Lake Hartwell, Custom Built home is in a Gated 4 home community with a park like setting that is truly spectatular. We enjoy sitting on the front porch looking at the 'park' just as much as sitting on the back porch viewing the lake. The house is so close to the lake with unobstructed views and a gentle walk. We've been coming to Lake Hartwell for over 10 years and have never seen a lake home in a better setting or with a better view.

Another favorite thing about our property is that it is less than 7 minutes off I-85 which makes it so convenient. We used to rent different lake houses and other than an old dirty home, the # 1 problem we would have is getting off the highway excited to get there only to find that we had another 25 minute drive through questionable areas just to get to the house. Not with ours!

I'm a custom home builder in Atlanta, Ga and built our dream home on the best lot I could find. We have all the amenities you would find in a fine home (granite countertops, upscale appliances including a food warmer built into the island, and even a floor heater in the master bathroom for fall and winter guests. Our priority when building our home was to have an upscale lake home yet with a cozy lake feel so we would feel like we were at the lake and not in Atlanta.

Our home is perfect for one family or two! We have 2 King sized beds so if you are used to sleepig on a King you don't have to fight with another couple over who gets the King...you both do!

The master bedroom has its own bath with a luxurious oversized shower, garden tub, double vanity, and floor heater. The upstairs bedroom with the King bed has it's own bath with tub/shower and single vanity. The other two bedrooms upstairs share a Jack n Jill Bath with tub/shower and a double vanity. The one bedroom has two bunk beds (4 beds total) and the other has a queen bed.

About Jeffrey Wertz

Jeff & Lana Wertz are the owners of the property. Jeff is a custom homebuilder from Atlanta, Ga and Lana is a nurse midwife also from Atlanta. We have 3 daughters who love to waterski, swim, and bike. We also have 2 dogs Mac & Paisley.

Our lake home is wonderful for kids and pets. Our girls like to have bonfires, take nature walks, pick wild blackberries and pears, do all the water sports and just do a lot of the things Lana and I did when we were kids that they don't do in Atlanta. Nights at the lake are my favorite, cooking dinner, sitting on the porch and taking a walk with the dogs under the stars!

For those with older guests or families the walk to the water is very gentle and short with no woods to meander through. Also, the main master bedroom is on the first floor so there is no need to climb up and down stairs to get to the bedroom.

Jeffrey Wertz purchased this house in 2009

Why Jeffrey Wertz chose Lavonia

We chose to buy this property when we saw the land come on the market in 2008. This was the best lake lot we had ever seen (still is). We spent 6 months working on the plan and built our dream lake home on the property. We knew the area well and loved the convenience not only to the property but from the property to shopping, grocery stores, and to boat ramps (the nearest ramp is on our property!).

What makes this house unique

We love getting to the house the first night, unpacking and going to the front or back porch and just look at the view! We also like going to Lavonia which is 10 minutes away to get doughnuts on Saturday morning and walk through the small shops and antique stores. We also buy local produce at the farmer's market on the square. We have had so many requests that this year we decided to rent out our 24' Sea Ray deck boat to experienced boaters. It has a 225 hp I/O Mercruiser engine and enough seating for 10 passengers. Our rates are much lower than the local marina's and you don't have to go anywhere to rent it. Please see the photos for pictures and rate information.

Perfect getaway property with all the luxuries of home with an amazing view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled quite a bit prior to having kids and have worked for hotels and resorts so I am very familiar with excellent service and upscale comfort as a traveler. You expect a certain level of accommodation that you are comfortable and familiar with everywhere you stay. I must say this house met all my dynamic diva expectations and more! The kitchen was my favorite part of the house because we had 5 adults that love to cook and this spacious kitchen was equip with the all the Kitchen Aid ware we needed to make fantastic meals and not run into each other :) The deck was the kids favorite part of the house because the view is spectacular and the comfy chairs to seat and relax were very nice to read on and play board games. My husband and I had the privilege of picking our bedroom so we decided on the main master downstairs. We chose well because the huge shower and splendid bathtub was perfect for the 2 of us. Its not often that a 6"3 man fits comfortably in a tub but he did and we felt like we were in a spa! The listing describing the accuracy of the amenities is written very humbly compared to actually experiencing the gorgeous house. Also, I need to mention that the pics do not do the grandeur of the property justice. Jeff, you need to hire a good photographer :) The only suggestion I have is please let guests be aware of the many ant hills all over the outdoor/park area that kids can easily step on. We had a few tears from bites regarding that issue but it was minor. The property was very clean and well maintained and the owners were very flexible to work with and communication was clear and constant. Excellent weekend, excellent accommodations, good price and Yes, if I am ever in the area again, I will certainly rent this house again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I really enjoyed Lake Hartwell and this beautiful lake house! The pictures don't do the property justice. The property is terrific and has one of the nicest views on the lake. The boat is an absolute must for exploring the massive lake. We would go back in a heartbeat.

More Than I Expected

  • 5 of 5
When I saw this home on VRBO, I said what a beautiful home to spend time with my family over Thanksgiving. When I arrived and opened the front door, I was in "aw", what attention to detail. The house is very large, but feels so cozy with the area rugs, antiques and fine finishes. I am amazed that the owners have utilized such beautiful finishes from the nautical rope crown moldings, marble countertops, beautifully chosen light fixtures
and warm and inviting fine furniture and antiques to share with their tenants. I have stayed in many VRBO residences, but I must admit this was the nicest. The view of the lake in the morning is worth waking up to watch the sun rise. The owners were extremely easy to work with and returned my deposit within one week. Many blessings to Jeff and Lana so they may continue to share their slice of heaven.

Perfect lake vacation

  • 5 of 5
The description of this property is very accurate. Finding the house is easy and, while slightly remote, grocery stores and a few restaurants are within a 15 minute drive. There are a lot of stairs in this house however, the first floor master would require climbing only the front three stairs to enjoy the property. Don't forget you have to visit the county dump to get rid of garbage but it is 1000 yards away and open at least every other day. The well water tastes like the lake so bottled water solves that. The location on the lake is great: close to fuel, facing away from hot afternoon sunset, great dock, reasonably quite, uncongested branch near good beaches, and not too far up-lake to visit the Seneca branch. Use of a boat is a must to fully enjoy this location otherwise it is just a nice house on a hill overlooking a lake. (The owner's boat is in good condition and perfect for cruising the lake or stopping off at a remote beach for lunch or a swim-when warm).

Beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home. The pictures don't do it justice. The view is awesome! We loved the screened in porch it was so relaxing and the view was so open. The owners are very easy to work with. We got the pleasure to meet them the day we left. There is some grocery stores and restaurants pretty close by. The town of Hartwell is very charming. We would definitely recommend staying in this home to anyone looking for a beautiful place to relax and have fun!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at the Hartwell Lake Home was wonderful. The home is immaculate with every accommodation imaginable. Jeff and Lana Wertz were the most pleasant owners to deal with and refunded our security deposit immediately. The property sits perfectly on the lake in a very private area. There wasn't much lake traffic directly in front of the property although the marina was conveniently located across the way. We had a lovely time and the kids loved every minute of it. After visiting other lakes and lake homes, this one is truly the best by far! Eating dinner at the Downtown Café and Pizzeria was excellent, with generous portions and a child friendly menu. Thanks so much to Jeff and Lana for sharing your lake home with us!
