Deer Cove Cottage is a comfortable retreat conveniently located off I-85 at exit 173 in an upscale neighborhood. The beautiful wooded property has a paved circular driveway and flat pathway to the lake. There is a 28’ x 34’ covered, lighted, slip dock in a large deepwater cove with views of the main channel. The cove, located at buoy T-64, is great for tubing and learning how to ski. There is also a canoe available for exploring the lake. The property is near two boat ramps, Tugaloo State Park and Poplar Springs, and 4 miles by water to Harbor Light Marina. The neighborhood is located just 1 mile from the entrance to Tugaloo State Park. In addition to boat ramps, the park offers camping, cabins, beach, tennis, playgrounds, putt-putt and nature trails.
The 2000 square foot home is perfect for a family get-together or getaway with friends, with many areas for having fun and relaxing. Enjoy morning coffee or tea on the spacious deck overlooking the lake, which includes a Weber grill available for use. There is a separate screened porch ideal for napping in the hammock and eating or playing games at the large table. Evenings on the dock offer spectacular sunset views across the cove and a perfect opportunity for watching for deer or the neighborhood beaver.
The main level of the home includes a well-stocked open kitchen, dining area and large great room with a stone fireplace, TV with DirecTV, DVD player and VCR. Assorted games, puzzles, DVDs, books, and toys are available. There is a day bed and convertible sofa which makes into a double bed in the great room, still leaving plenty of space to set up a card table for games and/or crafts. The main level also includes a bathroom and bedroom with a queen bed. For those who want to stay connected, wireless high speed DSL internet access is provided.
On the lower level there is a full bath, a second bedroom with a double bed and a twin bed, and a third bedroom with a double bed and a toddler bed. Towels and linens are available for your convenience.
For guests who wish to explore the area or pick up supplies, Deer Cove Cottage is close to shops and restaurants in Lavonia and convenient to Toccoa, Anderson, and Hartwell where you will find many restaurants and larger retailers such as Ingles and Walmart.

Deer Cove Cottage offers us easy access to fun times with friends and family year 'round! We chose to buy at Lake Hartwell several years ago due to the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere and beautiful water.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
Deer Cove Cottage is located in a beautiful neighborhood that is comfortable and easily accessible for weekend getaways. Also, the lake isn't crowded, making for safe and fun boating with our family and friends.
We enjoy the privacy of the property while still being part of a neighborhood. The kids spend hours playing outside and the dogs especially enjoy walks through the neighborhood. The close proximity of Tugaloo State Park is an added bonus where we enjoy tennis, putt-putt and the seasonal activities they offer. We are fortunate to be near Toccoa, Hartwell, and Lavonia and like eating at the local restaurants and browsing through the shops in these areas. We also have fun going to local activities and festivals.
We had a wonderful stay at Deer Cove Cottage. The large screened porch and open upstairs layout with the great outdoor view made for a great weekend. I cannot say enough about the owner(s). Heather was always very responsive, flexible, answered all questions very promptly and was a pleasure to work with for our stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the house was nicely decorated and well maintained. The location near Tugaloo State Park is convenient to restaurants and stores for any last minute needs. We highly recommend Deer Cove Cottage for anyone visiting Lake Hartwell. We will definitely return for another stay.
Once again we were not disappointed. This is the second time we have stayed at Deer Cottage. We have rented many houses at Lake Hartwell, and thus far this is the best. The house is always clean, has everything you need and then some. Lots of room. The walk to the lake is not very long and the smooth level shady path makes it nice. The dock is great and always on deep water. The owners are wonderful and go out of their way to assist in anyway they can. I would recommend this house to any family who wants to relax and enjoy themselves. Only suggestion would be to get a larger/newer gas grill for those of us who grill every day for lunch and dinner.
We had such a wonderful time at the cottage. The week went too fast. The cottage has all the necessities to make your stay cozy and relaxing. The lake was perfect, and we spent a lot of time swimming and boating. The dogs loved it too!!! The screen porch is huge, and perfect for enjoying early morning coffee. We saw plenty of deer, and 2 fawns frequented the area daily.
We would certainly stay here again.
Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us.
Great rustic cabin in the woods, just what we were looking for. The dock and water was wonderful. Easy walk to the lake. Great value for a week at the lake. Lots of deer wandering throughout the yard and the "lightening bugs" at night are fabulous. The owner is very accommodating and will go out of his way to assist you with whatever you need. The house was clean and was stocked with whatever supplies you needed. The only improvement I would make would be replacing the small gas grill with a larger one.. My family will definitely go back for another visit.
Lucked out and book this awesome home for a last minute weekend trip. Owners were incredibly helpful – suggesting restaurants and things to do in the area. Home was beautiful and clean. The walk to the lake was easy and the dock was new and big…would be perfect to sunbathe on. Saw lots of deer in the area and grocery store was convenient. Screened porch was nice and relaxing. Definitely hope to visit again this summer!
~1 mile from beautiful Tugaloo State Park.
