PLEASE READ ALL OUR GUEST COMMENTS! DO NOT TAKE A CHANCE ON RENTING A HOUSE THAT DOES NOT HAVE REVIEWS. SEE WHAT PREVIOUS RENTERS THOUGHT BEFORE YOU RENT. AS YOU CAN TELL FROM OUR COMMENTS, THIS HOUSE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!

Relax at the Lake! You will immediately fall in love with our home. With well over 5000 square feet it provides room for plenty of adults and children. The house is located on a very private cove in the highly regarded Reed Creek area of Lake Hartwell. It is very possibly the best rental available on the entire lake.

The GREAT room is huge! It is over 800 square feet with hardwood floors, lodge style wood fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and a 60' Sony HDTV flat screen. The eat in Kitchen is approximately 450 square feet with a huge island, gourmet appliances, and a custom table for 8. The master suite has a king bed and an amazing bath. The bath has separate vanities, a natural stone shower with 7 shower heads, and a jetted tub. It is truly an amazing spa type bath. There is also a bedroom with a queen bed and private bath on this floor. Just off the great room and kitchen is an amazing screened porch with 3 fans that overlooks our very private area of the lake. On the porch there is a hanging queen sized bed that is great for an afternoon nap or a great nights sleep!

The lower floor is practically a house in itself. Kids will love our 'bunk room'! It contains 3 sets of bunk beds and a full private bath. There are two more bedrooms on this level. Both have queen beds and one has a full private bath. Kids and adults will love the pool table, ping pong table, and the AWESOME home theater. The theater room has a 70 HDTV. Bring your movies or watch TV on this amazing system. The lower floor also has a kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave, and a wine cellar (sorry... have to bring your own wine)! Outside on the lower level you will find a large covered patio. The patio continues into a huge deck with plenty of room for relaxing or outdoor dining. The lake is literally less than 50 feet from the deck. Exit the deck and pass by the fully enclosed outdoor shower (with hot water). From the deck it is just a few short steps to the dock. The dock has a single boat slip and a large sun and seating area with a swim ladder. Because this is a very private cove there is almost no boat traffic. There are only 3 houses past our house in this cove. This makes for a very safe swim area and very clear water. It's just like having your own private area of the lake for swimming and relaxing.

Bring your own boat and jet skis or you can rent a boat at several marinas on the lake!

You are only approximately 7 miles from Hartwell, GA which has plenty of restaurants and shopping. Check out a Lake Hartwell map and you will see that Reed Creek (Buoy T17) is a very central location on the lake. It is a very tranquil and peaceful area with plenty of room to swim, ski, and boat without the crowds like some other areas of the lake.

Come stay in our home. You will find that this is really a home and not just a rental house. We take great pride in what we think is the best house on Lake Hartwell.

About The Owner

The Warnells! Bill, Belinda, Davis, and Ansley... and the Bulldogs!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Hartwell

We sold a home in Amelia Island to buy this home. It's less than 90 minutes from Atlanta and approximately 40 minutes from Anderson, SC. It is an easy to get to escape!

WE WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN HOUSE SWAP OR EXCHANGE! PLEASE INQUIRE!

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet cove setting. The kids can swim while we sit on the porch and watch. There is almost no boat traffic and only at idle speed. We can get in the boat and be out on the big water riding or tubing in 3 minutes. It is one of the most private settings on the lake with only 4 docks in our cove.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Super large lake house with great boat access

  • 5 of 5

We had four couples enjoying this nice, clean, large lake house, which had plenty of room to spread out. The great room was comfortable for all, and the master suite is particularly nice. The upper porch is a great place to relax. The boat dock was a real plus and we put our boat in at The Mary Ann Branch Boat Ramp, which was very convenient. The owner was also easy to work with. Ice machine was handy! There are a few things that need attention (outside grills; the inside stovetop grill, which we had to seriously clean before using; and the upper oven does not work; lower one does work). Also, bring your own wine glasses -- there is only one -- and bring your own specialty cookware if you are planning to cook much because most of what is provided has not been cleaned well or is about worn out. There were ample paper towels, toilet paper and cleaning supplies. Also would suggest having at least two keys in lock box. A key must be used to get in or out of every door in the house (there are many doors) and that could be a hazard in an emergency. Overall, we loved the place and would definitely recommend and return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for bringing these things to our attention. We were not aware. We have taken care of everything that you listed and replaced the housekeeper. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay despite these issues.

Luxury On Lake Hartwell

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my cousins 50th birthday here and there was plenty of room for everyone to gather. Perfect place for a large family or corporate retreat. The home is clean, comfortable and well equipped..as a VRBO owner myself I would highly recommend this property. We had our pontoon boat in tow and throughly enjoyed exploring Lake Hartwell then returning to this beauty of a lake house each night.

Lake Life

  • 5 of 5

As grandparents, this was the best week for our grandchildren and their friends, of course. We brought the entire family from ages 5 to 67. There was something for everyone. The house is beautiful and arranged perfectly, especially for teenagers. No one was bored. The location on the cove was out of the way of boat traffic and the water was clean, clear and cool. I can't say enough about our week at the lake. We all had a wonderful time. We will be back. The owners are so responsive and helpful. Thank you. Couldn't imagine anything better.
