Best Kept Secret at Hartwell

  • 4 of 5

I don't want to write this review because I don't want the secret to get out on how awesome this place is! First of all Connie is great to deal with. She always gets back to you quickly and works hard to accommodate any special requests. When we arrived at the cabin, I spent 10 minutes taking photos of all the cute lake house decorations (and many of them are amazing photos of the property.) It was very clean and perfect for either a large family, 2 families to share or 4 couples to get away. It's really great having the 2 separate living areas, 4 bathrooms and 2 large porches (with ceiling fans and comfy chairs!) Some places I have stayed only had the basics. That is not the case here! Connie has thought of everything possible you would need or want for a lake vacation home and provided it for the guests to use. Need a throw blanket because your chilly, there are plenty. Need a float for the lake, several are on the dock. Want a fan for the bedroom, in the closet. Games to play, books to read, CD's to listen to, all there. Even 2 kayaks you can use! There are lights along the paved pathway to the lake, a hammock to relax in, a campfire for marshmallows (and the rotating roasting sticks were so cool!) If you bring your own boat, there is a very convenient boat ramp in the neighborhood. It is so nice to put your boat in and then be able to leave it tied up at the dock all week. The lake is huge! We didn't even come close to seeing it all. We were really pleased by how uncrowded the lake was and how the other boaters were courteous. There is also a restaurant you can take your boat to as well as a place to gas up. We never did eat out though because we used the well appointed kitchen and convenient gas grill every night. I noticed absolutely zero smell downstairs (and I have a very sensitive nose) which a previous person commented on. Another person mentioned that the neighborhood was sketchy. We met one neighbor family and they were very polite. The other neighbor was never there. There is a mix of types of homes, but we felt safe there and even enjoyed a close encounter with a deer and chipmunk. Yes, the walk to the dock is steep, but almost every house we saw, had a steep walk. It's just the nature of the area. We also loved being a short drive from the mountains and did a couple of waterfall day trips. From watching sunsets on the dock to my daughter diving for lake bottom "treasures," we will definitely return!

Great weekend retreat near Clemson

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect retreat for my family to celebrate my youngest sister's graduation from Clemson! The cabin was spacious enough to sleep my myself and fiance, two sisters, their partners and mother very comfortably. It was also great to have the diversity of king, queen and bunk beds - all of which were very comfortable!

Stocked well with cooking supplies, linens, games, lake floats, etc., we really had everything we needed! Connie was an awesome communicator throughout the process and provided us with details to any questions - esp fun was her advice of the local marina to rent a boat. The entire weekend was a great experience and we'd love to return for another long weekend in the future!

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin! The cabin had absolutely everything you could think of: Games, dvd’s Books, kayaks, puzzles, Satellite TV etc. all the furnishings were very nice. Everyone in our party kept going on about how nice all the dishes, linens, and furniture, etc were! We took the short drive to Lighthouse Marina and rented a boat. It was very close to this cabin and that made it a very convenient experience. We had an issue with finding the key to the kayaks when we first arrived but the owner resolved that immediately. I appreciated her quick response. It really means a lot when they aren’t just renting you their place but really care if you enjoy your stay there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to have nice quiet family time on the lake.

Couldn’t have been better

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was all we could ask for, for the entire family. Roomy, yet cozy. Loved the front porch. Connie was very gracious in answering questions, prompt in getting back to us and very helpful throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend this Fair Play rental to families visiting the LakeHartwell, Greenville, Anderson area!

Great place with pleantly of space for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay, very quiet location, beautiful mornings and plenty of good fishing from the kayaks. The marina is just minutes away and very convenient. Being able to park a boat at the dock was also a plus. Very kid friendly! The owners care deeply about their clients and are very responsive. Would recommend this locations to anyone with a big family or two small families who want a nice getaway. Thank you! We will definitely be back one day.

Well provided house!

  • 4 of 5

The lake house was a nice place. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed which was a very nice treat. The porch was the best part of the house. The inside living space is small but again has nice furniture and decorations. There is a concrete trail down to the lake but its a good ways down to the water so you'll get your exercise! The house also has lots of parking. We enjoyed our stay here.
