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 Hartwell Lake

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....

Will not be disappointed

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.

Excellent Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A group of ladies and I rented this cottage for a weekend retreat. It was not only very clean and comfortable, but the grounds of the house provided a picturesque setting for a retreat. Susan was always quick to respond to our needs while in the process of renting, and we lacked nothing while we were there. I would not hesitate to return!

Love This Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with my mother and our eight year old daughter spent a wonderful Labor Day Weekend here. The cottage is very clean and well maintained with a lot more room than you would think. It's quiet and a pretty short walk to the water. We were able to drive to Harbor Light Marina in about 10-15 minutes so the location, which is right off I-85, was great. We look forward to returning!
