Greens Cay at Hartwell Description

Our large property enjoys a private yard, significant beach area, an unmatched view, and a single-slip dock. Deep water means no stagnation, no lake weeds ticking your toes, and ample distance from your neighbors for peace and relative privacy.

Our newest lakefront home will provide the ultimate in comfort and roominess for a large group to soak up the relaxation of the lake. Its two levels feature two large living areas and a fully equipped kitchen on the main floor. A full kitchen plus outdoor grill means you can cook up any meals or snacks during your lakeside vacation. The oversized deck right off the kitchen/living room includes chairs, or relax on our comfy sectional sofa with ottoman on the covered section of the deck. The living areas feature couches and new flatscreen TVs, and a full-size washer and dryer add convenience. The main level also offers a 1/2 bath.

On the main level are two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed and new TV. The newly remodeled jack-and-jill bath has a walk-in shower and vanity area. 

The lower level (accessible via separate, outside entry--no indoor access from the main level) has two more bedrooms, one with a queen and one with twin beds (not bunks) and each features a TV. The downstairs full bathroom has also been upgraded with walk-in tiled shower. Note that you must walk through the queen bedroom to access the bathroom.

One of the best features of our home is a beautiful green space just off our extended deck. There is a gorgeous, lighted path to the water.

To complete your stay, we have kayaks and a paddleboard available for your use and lounge chairs/swing on the dock, plus bikes for pedaling fun. We provide information on renting motorized watercraft, and can help with fishing information as well. There are some great lake-side restaurants that are accessible by watercraft.

In addition to all the perks of lake life, the Lavonia / Hartwell area offers great antique shopping, a variety of restaurants, and fantastic hiking opportunities with nearby waterfalls and nature trails. And we are located just 45 minutes from Clemson University or just under an hour from the University of Georgia. Avoid hotels and enjoy vast comfort for football games, other college sports, or just visiting your student.

When you want to get away from it all, Lake Hartwell is the perfect destination. Its pristine waters are crystal clear, the lake folks in the area are friendly, and our home will meet all your getaway needs.

Short stay rentals are welcome other than Summer Season which is Saturday to Saturday reservations only.
