Beautiful Home, Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house located on Lake Hartwell, immaculate inside and out. The pictures are accurate but do not adequately project the warmth and comfort of this home. Comfortable beds, plush towels, comfortable, clean furniture. We enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking the lake in the AM, having coffee and checking e-mail before going out on the lake for the day. There are 2 boat ramps very close by, and a small store less than a mile away. The neighbors are friendly, and the lake is beautiful. Linda was a pleasure to work with, very responsive and ready to help with any questions we had.

If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind on Lake Hartwell it doesn't get any better than this! We will definitely be back to this house for the USC-UGA game in Athens again (hopefully with a better outcome for our Gamecocks! :) ) if not before. Thank you, Linda & Wyman, for sharing your piece of paradise on the lake!!

Upscale lakeside living

  • 5 of 5

The entire house was warm and inviting and felt like home from the moment we walked in. Kudos to Linda for the tasteful, comfortable decor. I especially liked the well-appointed kitchen with all the extra's, including the festive plates and cups! We had a blast at the dock, fishing & using the kayak! We didn't fish much, but still caught 2 nice catfish, and spent a lot of time in the water. You're on a nice, quiet cove that makes playing off the dock a lot of fun, yet is still easy enough to get to big water for lot's of skiing, tubing, etc. (which we still did in the cove, too. I don't usually use a jacuzzi away from home, but your house was so fresh and clean, I got in yours and it was wonderful! The master bath beckons with all it's perks! We will definitely be back!

Well appointed! Luxurious vacationing!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many mountain/lake/beach homes, but have found none so well appointed at this one. The Master Bedroom is spacious, the bed is very comfortable and the jetted tub is deep. The linens and towels provided are a plus, but it doesn't stop there. The kitchen is well equipped and many condiments, etc were already there. We even left some of our own for the next group. The grill is a joy to cook on. It was obvious to us that Wyman and Linda have not just built a rental home, but have allowed us to stay in their personal vacation home. A super-nice place to stay!

We made a great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as expected. We searched for a nice rental and the listing had so many pictures that it seemed we had already been there when we walked in. The weather was perfect. Keep watching the bird feeder and you'll see the humming birds drinking. We spent some time on the lake and though the water level was low we had no problem enjoying ourselves.There's plenty of water at the dock. Check out Toccoa falls and Tallulah Gorge. Everything you'll need is already there. Great place. Thanks Linda for a great week.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our rental house feels like home. We carefully thought out everything you might need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. We feel our house is a tranquil getaway and hope you will think of our house in the fall when the leaves change color. Look for our listing on Home Away.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway, this lovely lake home is the perfect choice. The photos do not adequately portray the spaciousness of this home. We enjoyed the privacy of the deck whether we were eating our breakfast or sipping cocktails. Beautiful trees cascaded the path to the boating dock and lake.

We found that not only were the beds extremely comfortable but linens and towels were supplied as well. The kitchen was equipped with everything you needed if you wanted to cook and the dining room area was great if you just wanted to relax and dine in. The living room was definitely the place to unwind and kick back after dinner and enjoy watching TV or your favorite movies (great surround sound).

All the rooms were wonderfully decorated, and each room’s décor was given its own little touch of magic! The owners were extremely responsive and quickly responded to all of my phone calls before and during our stay. We feel this home is definitely a delightful place to stay and we are looking forward to returning very soon! I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
