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.

About Owner

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.

Owner purchased this House in 2005

Why Owner chose Gumlog

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.

What makes this House unique

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.

                                                              Everything was spectacular. Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of comfortable beds, great open living room area. The charcoal grill downstairs worked just fine for our group. The 6 or so adirondack chairs on the dock came in handy as well as the Radio Flyer Wagon to take supplies to and fro. Would highly recommend & would come back! Not to mention, the dock faces West so you get the sunsets.

                                                              PERFECT VACATION FOR MY HUSBAND 50TH BIRTHDAY

THE COTTAGE IS WONDERFUL AND EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PLACE IS PERFECT. OUR DOG HAD A GREAT TIME ON THE SCREEN PORCH AND THE OPEN BACK PORCH. WE HOPE TO BE BACK REAL SOON TO STAY AGAIN.

                                                              Perfect stay at Deer Cove Cottage

                                                              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.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              John - Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you all enjoyed your visit at Deer Cove Cottage and welcome you back to stay again soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Heather

                                                              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.
