Awesome accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for many reasons. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas and every detail seemed to be thought of! Both kitchens were fully equipped, and even more importantly they had great knives, which is rare to find in a rental. Each room was spacious and there were plenty of bathrooms. The lake view was perfect and we were able to use the paddle boat and row boat with ease. Since the kitchen and living room are open concept it was a great gathering place fort the group. Additionally, there is a sono sound system that plays throughout the house, but you can turn down the sound in certain rooms if you prefer. It provided the perfect soundtrack to our weekend. The was warming up when we arrived and was nice and hot by the time we got in. Arcade games in the loft were a fun addition to the home. Be aware that there is no separate hallway to get to the top floor bedrooms, so you will have to walk through either of the loft areas to get to that floor. Whoever stays in a loft area can't be too picky about privacy, although the big screen tvs in the lofts should appease them. We went on a short group hike at Lake Hartwell State Park, which was only 15 minutes away despite actually being in South Carolina. Steve and his neighbor Tim were both helpful and made the trip go smoothly. This home exceeded my expectations with it's beauty and all of the thoughtful details.

Family Thanksgiving 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time again at the Hartwell Manor! The place is beautiful and can accommodate large families. We had 33 people from newborn to 84 and never felt crowded! Steve is very nice to work with and Ted is amazing! Even bringing us a dust pan! We love this place!

Yearly family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

It really should begin with the professionalism and friendliness of owner in prompt responses to early ? we had when making reservations. Second, the absolute best neighbor, Ted, who oversees your stay, is very helpful and well represents owner. The property is STUNNING. We've rented a house every year (10 years) for our family trips in different states and locations and this property and its amenities inside and out would definitely be in our top 3. Will definitely share details with others. Thank you Steve Blackmon, owner, for such a fantastic place to share and create new memories!

Walimah Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

My son got married. It is the duty of the male's family to have a feast and party. We had some food catered but we prepared some foods as well. The house accommodated us and exceeded our expectations. The service from the property caretaker was engaging and exceptional. He provided instructions that seemed complicated at first but we followed them without difficulties. The house was spacious, relaxing scenery, with activities galore. It rained a few nights, we played games and hung out on the screened porch. We had fun in a tree swing and boats that accommodated adult weights. We went shopping in town which was a 15 minute drive. The house came with a hot tub, a jetted tub in the master bathroom, a variety of tub and shower combinations throughout. There was a game room, two lofts with beds on each, extra towels, blankets, just extra stuff. There are two kitchens that had more stuff, appliances, and candy - my grandchildren really enjoyed that. At the end of the day, it was a great place that wowed my guests. I also got my refund back within a week. Thanks Steve, definitely looking forward to my next visit

Hartwell Manor family Thanksgiving 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Hartwell Manor! Our big family had plenty of room to play games or just lounge around. The view was amazing and the house is beautiful! We enjoyed the paddle boat and canoe and the big swing! The 2 kitchens provided plenty of space to cook our meals. We all enjoyed the big bedrooms each with its on bathroom. We plan to come back!

We refer to this home as "our lake house" once a year.

  • 4 of 5

We love this place! This is our second year, and we have just booked it for year number three. We are a family of seven siblings with some spouses, and our wonderful mother. We celebrate her birthday during our stay. Here's what we love:

* - Every bedroom has a bathroom

* - big enough dining table to seat everyone

* - plenty of cozy area for quiet escape

* - TWO kitchens

* - Expansive windows to bring the outside in

* - Several large decks wtih chairs that overlook the lake and the incredible view

* - Very open floor plan

* - Wonderful master suite - it rocks!

* - Well stocked with essentials and lots of extras

* - there is a feeling of coming into your own home, rather than a rental.

* - When you forget something, you discover that it is here!

* - Nothing is cheap. Everything is top quality.

* - There are tons of amenities - be sure to read the description of the list.

* - It is very clean and well cared for.

Our concerns:

* - There are a lot of steps. This is a three story home.

* - The smart oven and stove in the main floor kitchen can sometimes be a little challenging to operate, even with the instruction list.

* - If we could make a suggestion, we would suggest brighter lighting in the kitchen and dining room.
