BEFORE SENDING AN INQUIRY PLEASE READ EVERYTHING IN THIS SECTION AS WE HAVE BEEN VERY THOROUGH AND DETAILED! We want to protect our home as well as ensure it is a retreat for everyone who books and in order to do that we have some rules that are non-negotiable, not to hinder you but to truly provide a clean/beautiful, consistent home. Please keep reading for our pet policy (DO NOT INQUIRE OR BOOK WITHOUT READING IT FIRST, IT IS A FEW PARAGRAPHS BELOW) and make 100% certain you read the house rules. We do not often negotiate these though we will always respond to your questions. For those of you that want to bring your own boats or rent a boat from one of the marinas on the lake (to rent a boat, simply use our website with links to marinas that rent or use the internet to search!), there are two OUTSIDE spots on the dock you can tie up to and a place to park a truck(s) trailer or two at the very top of the driveway. (You may not use a slip even if it’s open (due to insurance) but the sides are fine!). There is plenty of parking otherwise. The top level of the double decker dock is equipped with several lounge chairs (as shown in photos) as well as a covered sitting area with couch and chairs. There is a porch swing on the lower level of the deck as well. The DEEP-WATER cove is great for swimming or paddling around with one of our kayaks or canoes (these come with the rental!). We provide several adult and child size life jackets.
We provide high-speed internet for those of you needing to keep up with work or remote learning. Cell phone service works well both on the dock and in/around the house. There is a large 65" Smart TV in the main living room and 32" TV's with Roku in three of the bedrooms as well as one in the common area of the basement where you can log into your account on any of the apps that these provide (Netflix, Hulu, etc). We have charging stations with USB ports in each room of the house for your convenience. We also have a detailed guidebook with all of the information relevant to the home and surrounding areas. There are two boat ramps just minutes away from the home (with Hatton’s Ford being the closest) making this a much easier choice to find your way around Lake Hartwell. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants, local bars and the city of Anderson is a mere 20 minutes away.
The home has a large deck off the kitchen that overlooks the lake with a secondary concrete deck below just off the walk-out basement for ease of access to the lake and additional storage. The two-story dock on the water is just a short walk down the hill from the home. On the path to the lake there is a wood-burning fire pit with plenty of seating. **If you have mobility issues please consider a property that is completely flat as the walk to and from the lake can be difficult for some (see detailed photos)**
On the lowest level of the home, (the walk-out basement level) is another large private bedroom with a comfortable twin size daybed and twin size trundle bed below (sleeping for 2) and a large closet with a card table and folding chairs. There is also a couch that converts to a bed in the main room of the basement level that can be used as a sleeping space for two additional guests if needed. The lowest level is a comfortable, heated and cooled space with tile floor and plenty of light. There is even a foosball table for your enjoyment as well as corn hole on the deck just out the door. There is a full bathroom on this level with a large walk-in shower. There is also a large TV in the common area as well as a "Coffee Bar" with a single-serve Keurig and a mini-fridge. We also have a large bar top on this level with barstools. We have a large selection of adult and children's books for your reading pleasure. There are adult and children's life vests on this level for your use. They are the "around the neck" standard orange life vests so if these are not comfortable to you, bring what you prefer! See photos and captions for details!
The house sleeps 10 comfortably but it is possible to sleep 12 if you use the queen size air mattress provided which fits in the lowest level bedroom easily (this is stored on the main floor in the lakefront bedroom walk-in closet along with sheets, etc). The kitchen is located on the main level of the home (no stairs required to enter at this level though the driveway is slightly angled at the drop off point (see photos of the front of the home) and is fully equipped for all of your cooking needs. We have a French press coffee maker as well as a brand new Keurig (bring your K-Cups!). There is a dishwasher, range, full size refrigerator and because we love to cook when we are there, we thought of everything! We provide dishwasher detergent, a roll of paper towels (bring more!), dish soap and kitchen basics (salt & pepper and a small collection of spices). The kitchen table is large enough to seat most of your guests (see photos) and there are a few extra chairs as well as an island with barstools. There is a large gas (propane) grill on the main level deck just off the kitchen and we provide the propane. The gas firepit on the main level back deck is just for decor as it is against our insurance to use a firepit on that deck. It does make a nice spot to prop your feet and enjoy your morning coffee. The lake view from this deck is amazing!
The main living room is located on the main level as well and has two huge/deep West Elm couches (not for sleeping) and a large coffee table (great for working a puzzle or playing games). The largest TV in the home is also located in this room in view of the couches. It is the perfect place to land after a long day on the lake. The front porch has several rocking chairs and overlooks the front yard and beautiful scenery.
The two spacious bedrooms located on the main level both have comfortable queen size beds, plenty of storage space for your luggage and clothing and large closets. One of the bedrooms overlooks the lake and has a sliding door that exits on to the main-level deck. The walk-in closet of the lakefront bedroom has an air mattress with sheets/bedding, extra blankets, a large cooler and an iron and ironing board. There is also a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo located on the main level between the two bedrooms and just off the living room/kitchen area. Check the photos for details and captions!
The master bedroom suite is located on the 3rd floor and has a king size double pillow top mattress. The master suite has a large walk-in closet and a huge bathroom equipped with a deep soaking tub as well as a single walk-in shower. See the photos for additional information. The master suite is a private oasis and is the only bedroom located on the 3rd floor. The lake views are amazing from this area! If your kiddos are small and you want to bring a twin size air mattress, it will fit right next to the bed in the master suite. There is a small balcony at the top of the stairs that overlooks the main level. We provide all bed linens and plenty of towels. All of the beds are made up prior to your arrival with clean luxurious linens. The towels provided are for indoor use only so if you would like to have towels for use on the lake, bring some! The photos are how you will find the home when you enter, we take great pride in the cleanliness of the home. We provide two rolls of TP per bathroom (bring more!).
PET POLICY...PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING OR WE WILL CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION: WE ONLY ALLOW DOGS ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS. We had to create this policy due to guests assuming that because we are "pet-friendly", it meant anything goes. We LOVE dogs but want to know in advance! We know you understand.
WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING INSTANT BOOKINGS WITH PETS SO, YOU MUST:
-GET PRE-APPROVAL (aka, send a message and tell us about your dog, flea control, your strategy for keeping it off the furniture and beds & any other relevant info. Crating is a MUST if you plan to leave the dog in the home when you are not in there)
-PAY THE EXTRA FEE (IF WE APPROVE AND YOU ACCEPT THE RATE). THE SET DOG FEE OF $175 IS FOR ONE SMALL (under 20 lbs) PER STAY.
-IF YOU WANT TO BRING YOUR DOG, DO NOT INSTANT BOOK. SEND A MESSAGE FOR PRE-APPROVAL AND QUOTE.
ALSO, PLEASE READ THE HOUSE RULES...WE DO NOT ALLOW PARTIES OR RENTAL TO ANYONE UNDER 30 years of age. Proof is required at time of booking. This is our home, not a party rental! We have two Nest cameras at the front and rear entrances for surveillance when the home is NOT occupied. Once you arrive and send a text to us confirming that you have arrived, we immediately turn the cameras off. The cameras are active when a green light is shown on the front. We deeply respect your privacy and only have the cameras on between guests and when the home is not occupied during the "off" season. There is a sign at the front door with instructions and the phone number to text upon arrival. The driveway is steep as it goes down to the basement but towards the top is a great place to park with a boat trailer or to easily unload your things in through the main level front door. We stay fully booked May through October and on holidays so don’t wait! Our reviews are stellar! This isn’t a cabin on the lake, this is a beautiful, large family home and we take great pride in keeping up with it for your enjoyment and ours.
Let us help you get ready for your get-away!
If you have a question about your vacation rental, just ask. We look forward to hearing from you.
