About Susan Bristow

My husband and I are crazy about Lake Hartwell. We have found this to be a great place to spend quality time with our kids with few distractions. Boating is our passion, especially sunset pontoon cruises. (Owner is a licensed real estate broker for Georgia and South Carolina)

Susan Bristow purchased this Cottage in 2006

Why Susan Bristow chose Fair Play

Originally from Atlanta, I was looking for a vacation home on the water that was convenient and less crowded that Lake Lanier. This location is near I-85 @ exit 4 and very convenient to Atlanta, Clemson, Seneca, Anderson, and downtown Greenville.

What makes this Cottage unique

We have the complete package for a fun family vacation. This cottage is so cozy, you may never leave the porch. Bring your boat, some groceries, and the kids, and we'll provide the rest... OR leave the kids at home and plan a getaway for just the two of you....

It is larger than it appears and has a spacious back porch with a nice view of the lake. The master bedroom and bathroom are very large and nicely appointed. The bunk room is perfect for kids. The entire house is comfortable and well decorated. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us!

                                                                  The Amazing Cozy Cottage

                                                                  John F.Daphne, AL

                                                                  This is one of the few houses that look even better in person than in the pictures. This is truly the definition of lake cottage living. It has been meticulously restored and heavily updated. The master suite is magnificent. There is plenty of storage for a small cottage. The kitchen is great. The cottage deck, living area and master offer fantastic views of a wide cove on the lake. The yard is expansive and not cluttered offering plenty of play room and great views.

                                                                  There is a nice boat ramp in a pretty park setting less than 1.5 miles from the cottage and the cottage has dock available.

                                                                  The location is less than 2.5 miles from I-85, making just about anything in northwest GA and upstate SC accessible quickly.

                                                                  On top of all this, Susan made us feel like we were old friends and offered us immense hospitality. I highly recommend this location and this owner. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

                                                                  Will not be disappointed

                                                                  Crystal R.SC

                                                                  This cottage is adorable. We loved the master suite and the cute bunk room for the kids. My favorite spot was the covered porch with the hammock and fans to keep you cool. The walk to the lake is level and easy. Although it's just a platform dock we brought a canopy to keep on the dock and had plenty of room for chairs and tied up a boat and jet skis. The cove is busy but we were still able to swim off the dock just fine. The owner made great use of the space and it's very cozy and clean. You may feel far from things but it wasn't a bad drive to get to the grocery store maybe 13 minutes. We loved this cottage and would stay here again. The owner is super nice and more than willing to help you find what you need.
