About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We recently built this home in 2008 after falling in love with the beauty of Lake Hartwell. The floor plan is very open with a huge vaulted family room. Master bedroom is located on the main floor, two large secondary bedrooms and a full bath are located on the second level and two additional bedrooms and a full bath are located on the terrace level.

The main floor has heart pine floors through out with a large family room and a wall of windows looking out on to the huge covered deck. The kitchen is very roomy with granite counters and breakfast bar. Dining room table easily seats 8 people. French doors lead from the dining room to a cozy screened in porch which is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee. The back of the house has a very large deck much of which is covered with a vaulted roof.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, walk in closet, tiled shower, and french doors with deck access. The two secondary bedrooms located upstairs each have queen size beds. A full size bathroom is located between the two bedrooms and has a shower tub combo. The basement has one bedroom that has 2 sets of bunk beds and a second bedroom with a queen size fouton couch.

To access the lake, just follow the very gently sloping path down to the water. Renters will have access to one of the two covered boat slips for watercraft they bring up. The dock has a large 28x12 composite deck that is partially covered for those who want to get out of the sun but enjoy the lake. The dock is wired for electricity for those who need access to charge batteries, etc. The dock is located on a point lot with plenty of privacy from surrounding docks. Dock remained wet throughout the drought of 2007-2008 so no concerns should be made about having boat access.

Boat ramp access is located approx 3 miles away at the Poplar Springs boat ramp. Location on Lake Hartwell is at EC3 which is near T73

For the occasional rainy day at the lake, the basement has a ping pong table, PS2 game console, TV and DVD player.

NOTE: House phone is provided with VOIP access but cell phones get fairly good signals!! YOU MUST BE 25 years of age or older to rent our home. There is absolutely no smoking in our home!!!

Why The Owner chose Martin

Both my wife and I grew up spending numerous weekends at the lake water skiing, swimming, fishing, and just relaxing away from the busy city life. Now that we are married with children, we decided that we wanted to share those experiences with our children.

What makes this house unique

Shortly after building our home we found out what a perfect place this is to ski and fish. We also enjoy coming down to the dock first thing in the morning to enjoy a coffee and an occasional sighting of our bald eagle 'Elvis'.

July Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing vacation staying at this house. The house was beautiful and the location was easy to get to and located in an area that was not too busy which made skiing ideal. We took breaks by floating by the gorgeous and very functional dock complete with a swing. Tim was very helpful and answered all of my questions in a timely manor. We will definitely be back for our next vacation.

Best catch on Lake Hartwell

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this house for a Lake Hartwell family vacation. The house provided perfect accommodations for the young and old. The dock was wonderful and provided a great place for fishing, swimming, boating or just swinging on the porch swing. The house was furnished with all the necessities and we were able to prepare wonderful meals with plenty of room for everyone. We will definitely keep this house on our list of favorite vacation spots and will hopefully get to visit again some day.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for our big Thanksgiving and Clemson Football weekend and it could not have been better. My parents, my two sisters and our families all traveled to be together for the holidays and this home offered the perfect getaway. The home was big enough to offer plenty of space, but also had a cozy comfort about it. We lived the whole weekend on the main level and took full advantage of the open kitchen and living room floor plan. The massive windows throughout the house provide a beautiful setting and tons of natural light. We had perfect weather and were able to sit out on the deck most afternoons. We will definitely be booking this house again for our next family gathering.

Lake Hartwell Beauty appropriately named

  • 4 of 5

The Lake Hartwell Beauty is a very nice property. Our group had three couples and we really enjoyed the spacious home and amenities. We have used other properties for our fall family Hartwell reunion in the past and this is definitely the nicest home we've rented! We even had a family ping-pong tournament. The dock is really great and the view was super! And there were even two more bedrooms we didn't use. We would definitely recommend this vacation home and would be interested in returning next year if it's available.
