Very cozy lake cottage, beautifully furnished and decorated with two bedrooms/one and-a-half baths and a sleeper loft. Built-in 2000, the "Tree House" Cottage is a private family getaway and brand new to the rental market.
Our cottage is located in a great cove with great water for swimming, skiing, sunbathing, and excellent fishing. Fishermen, this house is located less than 150 yards to the Cleveland Ramp Boat Access and very close to Hart State Park and the Lake Hartwell Marina. While Dad is fishing, the family can stroll along the natural flat path for approximately 100 yards to the private covered boat dock with an available slip for your boat.
Enjoy grilling off the small deck with a top of the line stainless steel gas grill, or enjoy sitting by the outdoor portable fireplace at night roasting marshmallows. This property is only five minutes from downtown Hartwell (by car) for shopping and dining and even closer to the Hartwell Marina (by boat) for boating essentials.
The "Tree House" Cottage sleeps four to six people, can park four or more cars, and if requested can accommodate garage storage for two boats. Both bedrooms host double beds, the open floor plan living room/kitchen area has a full size pull out sleeper sofa, and the loft (by way of a very steep staircase) can sleep two with two mattresses. As its name might suggest, The "Tree House" Cottage requires climbing stairs for access, and is not therefore handicapped accessible. Wireless Internet Access is always on. This is a non-smoking house.
Our overall experience was great! Although we didn't do a lot of cooking, there was plenty of cookware available. Both bedrooms were very comfortable with a nice size TV and Xfinity in the living room area. The home was clean and very well maintained and a bowl of snacks was left on the kitchen table with a welcome note, very thoughtful! As nature photographers, we travelled to the quaint city of Helen Georgia and then up to the Ana Ruby falls. Lots to see in North Georgia including old barns and scenic countryside. We would stay here again that's for sure!
My family rented the property over the Memorial Day Weekend. The cabin was clean with modern amenities. The kids loved the separate loft area. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.
We stayed in this house for two nights because we were in town for the Hartwell Dam race. There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The description was accurate. There were 2 single mattresses made up on the floor in the loft which were fine for the kids (ages 13 and 15). They enjoyed having their own spot to hang out. There was a steep ladder to get to the loft, which was fun to climb. The downstairs bedrooms were very comfortable. The house had everything we needed (clean sheets and bedding, plenty of towels, paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, dish detergent, laundry detergent, trash bags, coffee maker and filters, pots, pans, dishes, etc.) with the exception of coffee mugs, oddly enough! Couldn't find those anywhere. The property was very clean and well-maintained. There was not much water pressure when taking a shower, but that wasn't a huge deal. This house is not what I would call "waterfront" and there is no view of the water from the house. But it is just a short walk down a path to get to the dock. We brought a couple of chairs from home, and we carried those down to the dock to sit. It was very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view.
I do recommend this house if you ever need a place to stay in Hartwell.
