Hartwell Home Description

Our large property enjoys over 450’ of water frontage with a beautifully maintained beach and a huge, covered, double-slip dock (one for use by guests). Deep water means no stagnation, no lake weeds ticking your toes, and ample distance from your neighbors for peace and relative privacy.

Our home will provide the ultimate in comfort for a large group to soak up the relaxation of the lake. Its three levels feature a large living and fully equipped kitchen on the main floor. Stainless appliances are new, and all you need is provided to prepare and enjoy great meals. Our custom dining table will accommodate up to 12 guests with a second table for 4 plus bar seating. The oversized deck right off the kitchen/living room includes seating and a table as well as a large grill for whipping up your favorite cookout foods. The living area features new comfy couches with recliners and a flatscreen TV; a full-size washer and dryer add convenience.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed and new TV. One features a desk/work area. The remodeled master bath has a walk-in shower, a deep tub, and a sizable vanity area.

The lower level has a second family room with sleeper sofa and a new Smart TV with cable and Internet access (Netflix). Two more bedrooms offer (1) twin bed + twin bunk beds and (2) a queen bed. The downstairs full bathroom has also been upgraded.

One of the best features of our home is a separate recreation/entertainment building. Located just steps from the main house, inside is a flatscreen TV, pool table, and couches. It sleeps 4 guests with a set of bunk beds plus sleeper sofa. Perfect for kids, teens, young adults or night owls of any age!

To complete your stay, we have various water toys available for your use (kayaks, paddleboard), lounge chairs on the dock, a golf cart to ease your way to the lake from the house, plus bikes for pedaling fun. We provide information on renting motorized watercraft (ski boats, pontoons, waverunners) 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.
