Overview

Hartwell Lake House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Master bath has Jacuzzi tub. Sleeps 6.

Our home is well maintained with 1600 sq. ft, landscaping, and sits in a private, wooded 11-acre tract. It has a large master suite with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Hardwood floors with area carpets enhance the living experience. There is a huge covered dock with sun deck to tie your boat up to. Rental boats available at Harbor Light Marina. Free use public boat ramp close by to launch your boat. Available canoe and floats to use for your leisure activities. We do have a security system in place which shows the 4 corners of our nearly 11 acres of property on a monitor. No one is manning this monitor, but it is helpful to have in place in case of a concern. The visual does not extend as far as the dock. We also have in place several motion sensitive lights. Those lights come on whenever motion is detected. This might be a person, a cat (there are 4 outside cats), deer, raccoon, or other animal. These are not connected to any cameras. They are just courtesy lights. Probably the best courtesy is for a late arrival. When you would pull up in the drive way, the motion sensor light comes on and stays on long enough for you to put the code 1243 in the key box, retrieve your keys, unlock the door, retype 1243, replace this key, and close the box, all with plenty of light. You will then find several sets of keys on the kitchen counter. It's also a nice way to welcome you back 'home' after dinner when it is dark, and you forgot to leave an outside light on.

Great rental. Cozy in the woods. Right on the lake.. Everything you need is right here. Pets considered. When pets are allowed, we ask that they not be on any furniture. I do use the red sofa covers when a pet is here, just in case. If I did not put them on by mistake, please find them in the master closet in the top drawer. And we thank you so much.

Wi fi is available. The Password is located in the master bedroom on the bottom of the router where it says PASSWORD. Use that password and you will be connected.

Directions for using the TV's are located in the living room, under the glass on the coffee table top. There are very specific directions for which controller to use for what and the order in which to push the buttons. There will be no difficulties when done in this order. And again, we thank you so much. Neither of us is very 'techy,' and me not at all.

Better Than Advertised!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from an enjoyable weekend and could not have been happier with the stay. The host and hostess were accessible, and the dock was an amazing two deck one. I highly suggest renting here if you want to be anywhere in this area of the lake!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cottage, property, dock, and their home! From our very first day we felt so comfortable and relaxed! Mary & Pat made us feel so welcome. They are truly the sweetest people and were so helpful. When we got there we sat and talk with Mary & Pat for the longest time. They were so knowledgeable of the area, since we were there to find and purchase our own little slice of heaven on the lake , they gave us so much information that helped us find our own piece of paradise! Their place was like a slice of heaven! The cottage was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed. The walkway down to the dock is spectacular! The dock and view were fabulous! If we hadn't found our home while we were there, we would most definitely would have returned to stay here again! Thanks again Mary & Pat for your hospitality! We will definitely be by again to say hello when we finally get settled in her own home!

Sincerely

Dave and Lynn Bloss

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here! The property is quiet and absolutely beautiful! The dock and deck were wonderful out on the peaceful cove. M&P went above and beyond in their hospitality. I cannot thank them enough.

The house was very nice, clean and comfortable. We'll definitely be coming back.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Mary made our stay absolutely wonderful. The house was meticulous upon arrival and even better than we expected. Our second day was rainy and overcast-she brought over a large box of toys and books for our 3 young children "just in case!" What a thoughtful host. We will definitely be coming back and would highly recommend!

Lake Hartwell , a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina, is one of the largest and most popular public recreation lakes is the southeast. It has a shoreline of 962 miles. Our home sits on almost 11 acres of that land with 1032 feet of shoreline. There are many public parks and marinas close by. Fishing is legal anywhere on the lake with either a GA or SC license. Visit nearby waterfalls. Play golf. Go rafting or canoeing on the Chattooga River, or use our canoe for a more leisurely ride. Enjoy Clemson University sports or visit the Botanical Garden. Go hiking at trails of all levels of difficulty. Go boating or water skiing. Tie your boat to our dock, the largest private dock (we're told) on the lake, in the deep water cove we call home. Relax and enjoy.

Notes:
House is 1 level and easily accessible (no step) from driveway to house. No steps inside house. Open floor plan. From house to dock would require 0 step downs from driveway side to solid surface (brick and concrete) to walkway to dock. Land is a gradual slope to dock, not a steep descent. This would allow occupant of wheelchair to enjoy dockside lake activities while sitting on lower level of dock. Sunsets here are lovely, very serene. Please ask about our lake level. This is a nearly private deep water cove. However, we have had to chase water during droughts and 'dam maintenance,' low water times. When this occurs, we have approximately 6 steps from the walkway to the shore. During those times, it would be very difficult, even unsafe , to try to get a wheelchair occupant to the dock. So please ask owners before booking. Our goal is for your safety first, and your pleasure and memorable experience second. We love return visitors and hope you will be among them.
