Gumlog House Rental Photos and Description

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 Georgia

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'.

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.

I love this home! We had the best time. This home has everything you will need. The dock is best by far and we have rented for many years on Lake Hartwell. I love the layout and the view! You could not ask for more. I highly recommend this home. We'll be back next summer!

Lake Hartwell Beauty, Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was wonderful! Very spacious, it was the perfect setting for our group of 8 to relax and enjoy a long holiday weekend. Well stocked with quality furnishings...from good linens to nice sharp cutlery. With the great weather, the covered dock was a favorite gathering place from morning coffee to evening cocktails.

Great rental on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house over Christmas to accommodate our family (5 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs) and it was a great experience, even better than the pictures show. The house is large, spotlessly clean, and well appointed. The owner was very responsive and helpful.

Magnificent Find - Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate writing a glowing review because I want to keep this wonderful home to myself. However, I can't deprive someone the opportunity to enjoy a worry free vacation. My family rented this beautiful lake home for Thanksgiving. A year that saw a relocation to Charlotte, the passing of my father, and my mother's sextuple bypass, the last thing I needed to worry about was a Holiday. This home with its gorgeous views of the tranquil settings gave allotted time for decompression and healing. This was the first home I have rented on VRBO that was completely equipped (and a Kitchen that could accommodate Thanksgiving dinner).

The owner(Tim) was extremely responsive and helpful.

Fabulous lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a Celmson football weekend and loved this rental house. It was perfect for a large group. We had four couples and a few college kids and we had lots of room to spread out; the kids stayed up late playing ping pong and watching football without keeping others awake. The dock, back deck, and screened in porch were all inviting and peaceful options for enjoying an afternoon cocktail or morning coffee. It was also well equipped - the huge collection of tervis tumblers was nice! Wish the location was a little closer to campus but it worked. Maybe a 45 minute drive. Made for a great in-between location for our family and friends coming from the Atlanta area.
