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

average rating of 4.5 based on 36 reviews

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

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.

A great place to escape from the world!

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a long, holiday weekend here. It was a wonderful getaway. The owner is very responsive...we needed some help with a couple of small items when we arrived, and she was Johnny-on-the-Spot! We spent long hours on the screened-in porch visiting, reading and looking out over the lake. We cooked a couple of meals while we were there. The kitchen had all the needed cooking supplies we needed. The air conditioner works great and the beds were comfortable...what more could you ask for! All in all, a great little hideaway!

My husband and I have stayed many times in this cabin because it is a great place to unplug and unwind from our days and our businesses that demand our attention. I am glad to say that it is a place that we can relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings without other people a wall away and we can also bring our four legged children. I prefer the homelike atmosphere to the generic place of hotels where everything is the same and we are under the same roof with many other people. Also, I enjoy the peace and quite I get while sitting on the porch or out by the water in the sun. A great place to get away from it all and enjoy the homelike atmosphere that it offers.

Quaint Lake Cabin Family Time

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed a relaxed, quiet vacation in this comfortable roomy cabin that is nestled in a wooded lot by the lake. The exterior is a bit plain, but the inside is beautifully updated and filled with pretty and comfortable furniture. The three bedrooms are all located on the main floor which makes it easily accessible for anyone not wanting to negotiate steps. It made it very easy to move your things right in to your room or kitchen. There is a loft that has to futons that could be used for extra guests. Having 2 full baths was helpful. Each bedroom had a TV and there is a nice large flat screen tv in the living room. We enjoyed the screened-in porch that overlooks the lake. The walk down to the lake was an easy, gentle walk. The covered boat dock provided shade if we needed it. For evenings when we did not feel like cooking, we found good restaurants nearby. We were also able to rent a pontoon boat on two days for a better lake experience. The owner, Fran , sent an email with maps, directions, and suggestions that was very helpful.

What a lake house should be

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Fran Sullivan's lake house. Fran gave us excellent information prior to our arrival. Fran's house was clean, roomy and comfortable, and was clearly well maintained. The grandsons loved the loft with futons, perhaps as a place to escape from the adults. We all spent a lot of time on the large screened porch for talk and games, and just looking out over the quiet cove. To help celebrate a birthday we drove the short distance to Lavonia (on I-85) for an excellent meal at a new restaurant (J-Peters). After a long day of skiing and tubing we gassed up and purchased drinks at a nearby marina (Harbor Lights ?). We were happy that Fran had a covered dock to keep our boat and gear dry during two showers. We will return: we can recommend this property without reservations.

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