About Laura Mendiola

My family and I live in Atlanta. We loved the quality of the water on Lake Hartwell as well as it's less hectic crowds over our Atlanta area lakes. When we were shopping for water front property we were so happy to find such a great spot less than a 2 hour drive from home for my family to really get away from it all! My dogs both love swimming in the lake as well as going on our boat. The casual cottage and location has made for many great family adventures and our friends love to come hang out as well. For us the cottage is a perfect fit!

Laura Mendiola purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Laura Mendiola chose Hartwell Lake

The dock always has water due to it's location in a "green zone"... even in a draught we always have water at our dock. The paved path with lights for night time enjoyment and the fact that the path was flat make getting to the dock easy for my parents when they come to visit. I loved that it was close enough for a weekend get away for all my family scattered throughout the south and that it was an hour drive from Greenville-Spartanburg airport and 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta airport.... so location, location, location! My cottage is 10 minutes off of I-85 at exit 14.

What makes this cottage unique

Flat, paved path with lights for safe and easy access to the dock 24 hours a day! Great water and a private dock (center slot is covered and dock can accommodate 3 boats) with water and electricity at the lakes edge. Casual and comfortable cottage with fenced in front yard. Long driveway to park cars, trucks and trailers.

Wonderful Lake House Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave the Lake Cottage! Never left a vacation so rested. The home is much bigger and better than the pictures describe it. There is a large screened in porch and also a deck with chairs, tables, loungers, porch swing and two charcoal grills and one gas grill. Fully fenced in large front yard was great for our furry children as they ran around and chased the ball. Thank you for being Dog friendly. During the day, we sat on the dock watching the boat activity from the campsite across the way. Even though there was boat activity, it was still very peaceful and private. At night we made a campfire in the fire pit and listened to the sounds of the outdoors. We can tell the home improvements and it felt very clean. There is a door and drapes for privacy in both rooms. There were plenty of towels, dishes and utensils. Laura was responsive and very easy to work with. We had trouble figuring out how to watch cable and she walked me through it. Just as an FYI, there is not a DVD player in the house which didn't bother us at all. I couldn't find extra trash bags, but we brought our own. We will definitely book again!

Great place to stay and relax or fish.

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood was very quiet. You can use the property if you have a trailered boat handily. I loved the decorations, all water related. Front yard is fenced, good for pets. The security lights helped at night. Beds were comfortable, did the laundry before we went home (nice). We would stay here again. Suggestion- put door on front bedroom (closest to the bathroom).

Good for the money.

  • 3 of 5

Property was as discribed except no door for privacy on one of bedrooms and no blinds in that same bedroom for privacy which made our stay difficult because we could not get ready in the bedroom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to let me know your thoughts. Since we have just renovated there were a few things that hadn't been completed. The new door is scheduled to go in mid October (odd size door had to be special ordered) and instructions on how to operate the window blinds are now in place!

nice lake stay.

  • 5 of 5

Laura was very nice and provided everything we needed for our stay. Everything was identical to the pictures online. We had a great time fishing and swimming by the dock. Also, the fenced in yard was a life saver for our little pup. Even though the property description says it sleeps six I think it could sleep more. There was more room there than I expected. A private get away was just what we needed!
