About Fran Sullivan

My family & I have enjoyed this cabin since 2001. We've spent the summers teaching our children and their friends about the lake, boating, and how to ski. Now they're grown and we would like for other families to enjoy our home and Lake Hartwell.

Fran Sullivan purchased this house in 2001

Lake Cabin Retreat in quiet cove

It was totally relaxing and enough room for all of us. The lake is beautiful and very tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back during the summer months. Our family is very close and loved having time to just relax and enjoy being together. The cabin is close enough to beautiful scenery in all directions.

Great family-friendly cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Fran's cabin. Her communication and the information provided prior to our trip were extremely helpful. The price for the location is perfect. The house is cozy, clean, and you couldn't ask for a better porch or dock to relax on. I was a little concerned because this rental allows pets - but was pleasantly surprised that the house didn't smell like pets at all! Fran responded quickly to any emails we sent and she refunded our deposit in record time. Thanks for a great stay, Fran!

Not very pleased

  • 2 of 5

Was not very please with home as soon as we walked through the door. Very musty smelling. Carpets in bedrooms had big stains, along with bedspreads also. Plenty of room for sleeping, but very hard to sleep after finding a few dead Cock Roaches, along with some very Live ones. Really couldn't sleep after that. Suppose to take garbage out, but Robo-Can was packed to the top, luckily nice neighbor let us use his. Toilet seat in one bathroom would not stay up when my grandsons tried to go to bathroom. Kept slamming shut. Not the first home we rented through this site that was a disappointment.

Owner's Response: I hate it that you did not have a good experience at the cabin. I was unaware of how bad the carpet was and was unaware of the stained sheets. I took care of both of those things two weeks ago. As to the bugs, the cabin is sprayed frequently but it is in the woods and there are critters but I will have my service come in this week. Thanks for letting me know.

I only gave one star just so I could make a comment. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The carpet was stained with SEVERAL spots of pet urine and poop. The sheets that were provided had holes and stains all over them. The house reeked of a mildew smell. We had to go buy cleaning supplies to clean the kitchen and bathrooms. Needless to say this is not what you want to do on your vacation. If it were not for my husband's family driving five and a half hours away, I would not have stayed one night at this place. We gave the owner the chance to make it right but she didn't see there was a problem. She gave us our deposit back and cleaning fee that was it. I personally think she should at least refund us half the money. We ended up paying a chunk of money for something that was definitely not up to standard. Fran Sullivan told us she was not aware of the carpet looking so bad but her daughter cleans the house so how is that possible? We have pictures to prove everything we say is the truth. Our children had to wear shoes the entire time so they didn't walk on the nasty carpet. Ms. Sullivan said she is going to have the carpet replaced. Imagine that! This should have been done before it was rented to anyone! I just don't want to see anyone else make the same mistake we did because the website does not look anything like it did in person!

Owner's Response: You made it clear in your emails to me that nothing would appease you but a full refund. That was after you stayed in the house for a week without any notice to me of your dissatisfaction. I rent to people and allow animals. The only way I can prevent pet stains is to not rent to people with pets. Carpets have been fully cleaned and the stained sheet has been replaced. As I told you numerous times, I regret that your stay was not satisfactory.

Great location! Quiet and friendly neighbors!

  • 4 of 5

The house was just perfect for us! Fran was very accommodating and responded right away to all of my questions. It was a great way to relax and grab some family time-- I only wish I could have stayed longer. The house was just the right size and the dock was easy to get to. Thanks for sharing your home with us, Fran!

Car: necessary

The Tanger Outlet in Commerce is just 20 minutes away and you can actually go to the Clemson games by boat in the fall.
