About Rob Cochran

About the owner: We are the Cochran Family. Rob, Kathy, Cody and Tyson (our 1 yr old Black Lab)and the Murphy Family (Rob's Mom and Dad). We own an RV Parts and Service Company in Central Florida. My mom and dad are retired and also live in Central Florida. We all love the outdoors and love being on the water. Prior to purchasing this home, we were renters on Lake Hartwell so we know what it takes to make a great vacation experience. We've worked hard to make sure we provide a home with the decor, comfort, amenities and cleanliness that are 2nd to none. Come enjoy our home, you won't be disappointed!

Rob Cochran purchased this house in 2008

Why Rob Cochran chose Hartwell Lake

We vacationed on Hartwell in 2007 and just fell in love with the lake and area but we were very disappointed in the rental company and the condition of the home we rented. We thought we could do a much better we did! We found this beautiful home in a perfect, quiet location. It had just been completely remodeled and was just what we were looking for. So we purchased the home and my wife and mom beautifully decorated with all high quality merchandise.

What makes this house unique

This area just seems to drain the stress right out of you. It is so beautiful and relaxing. We love everything about it. Sometimes we pack a lunch and go out on the boat skiing and boating all day. When we get hungry, we just pick an island to stop and have lunch. We relax on the beach and the kids(and dog)explore the island. And the mountain drives with the waterfalls...just unbelievable. You can really see God's hand at work here! We always hate to leave!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and roomy lake house. The layout was perfect for us. It is well-maintained and very clean. The beds are quite comfy and everything was new! It is beautifully decorated and they have a well-equipped kitchen.

The owners provided a notebook with information about the property and the surrounding areas. They even printed out maps to grocery stores, restaurants, the marina and provided maps of Lake Hartwell.

There are steps down to the covered dock. There is a small fenced-in back yard and doggy door for pets--perfect for our little dog.

They have satellite TV with lots of channels--both upstairs and down. We didn't watch much, though. We were too busy having fun on the lake!

We grilled every night but the last one when we went to Anderson and had a yummy dinner at the Olive Garden.

We'd love to return. I would recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: We had vacationed on Lake Hartwell several times prior to purchasing our vacation home, so we know what it's like to be from out of town and need local information. We spent alot of time making sure the details were covered and it really makes your vacation more enjoyable. If you're not sure what all the area offers, we're always glad to discuss your vacation with you and help you fully enjoy all that upstate SC has to offer.....and it's alot!

Great property for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay! 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs plus separate living rooms that is perfect for multiple families. Updates to kitchen and bathrooms were great. Couldn't find one thing that we were missing. Overall, really enjoyed our stay and so much better than a hotel!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us! Having two living areas has been a great advantage for multiple families or just giving the kids their own space - especially now that we've added the wifi. We're so glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking great care of our home. Come back soon!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four stayed at this house over the Thanksgiving/Clemson football holiday. We could not have been happier. The kitchen has a great layout to accommodate several people with ample equipment for cooking and baking. The layout of the house is great for two families. The mattresses were comfortable and there were plenty of towels for our big group. Kathy and rob were awesome to work with. Will stay here again when it's time to return for another Clemson football game!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our weekend stay at this lovely house on Lake Hartwell. We found the house to be very comfortable, roomy, clean and well kept. Communication with the homeowners prior to our stay was exceptional with quick responses to all of our questions. The house location is also very convenient being that it's only minutes from I-85. We will definitely consider this house again in the future. Thanks!

Very clean and very good accommodation s

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean with large roomy bedrooms and baths. Three grown men had lot of space and privacy. Kitchen is modern with all necessary appliances. Parking for Bass Boats is good with plenty of space for three 21 foot boats. House is located mid lake with ramps within three miles with gas stations enroute. Best restraunts are within 10 miles in Anderson. Highly recommend for fishermen or families.

Lake Hartwell is known for it's great variety of fish and offers plenty of opportunity for catching the "big one"! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you back again soon.

Lake Hartwell is a Army Corp Reservoir with a required set back from the water. In most cases you either have a steep slope to the water or a very long walk to the water. We are closer to the water and have concrete steps to the boathouse vs. a long path. Either way, you should be in good physical health to enjoy this area. Smoking is allowed outside only.
