Perfect family vacation spot
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Lake Hartwell. The home was beautiful and spacious—even with twelve people, it never felt cramped. There was plenty of room around the table or to lounge together on the screened in porch. The owner was very responsive to communication and made us aware when a landscaper was coming out to measure. The only drawback is the proximity to town, so plan ahead and shop on your way in. The cove was quiet and calm, a perfect place to float and play.
Awesome House on quiet cove!
Excellent House. Highly recommend! Our favorite time was spent on screened in porch or hanging out in the open floor plan kitchen, great room, breakfast area. Tons of seating in all places. The carriage house bedroom/bath area is larger than most apartments. This house simply does not disappoint! We have rented a ton of VRBO’s over the past 30 years for our family. This house ranks at the top!!! The cove kept boat waves from beating our boat against a dock. It was almost always a glass like setting!!! Can you tell we loved this one??!! Almost hate to write this review...just to keep this treasure to ourselves.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was beautiful. We loved the open spaces and our family enjoyed the dock and water on Lake Hartwell.
Excellent option for those looking for some luxury and pampering. We ranged from ages 19-83 and house had something for everyone including wheelchair accessibility.
Ample seating (and I mean enough around the table, enough on the porch and enough in main living area) allowed for us to really connect with each other but the size and layout also allowed for plenty of personal space. Kitchen was well-stocked with everything you could need.
Owners Brad and Karin were extremely responsive and helpful. The house is more high-tech than what I am used to and so the list of instructions, while lengthy, are very helpful and worth the full attention read. A previous review indicated the rules were "too much" and while I can see the validity from a vacationers perspective, I think the house offers a lot and I am happy to do my part so others can also enjoy this amazing property. The house was clean (kudos to the cleaning staff.)
Some personal opinions - the men in our group did not like the mattresses and I had trouble with pillows. The stove is professional quality, but the quality of pans didn't match up. There is only one TV which meant the center of the house, with the beautiful view and amazing kitchen had to be shared with the game or news on (but the WIFI was great to allow streaming)
House has been updated from the photos to include some really fascinating artwork (labels of the origins much appreciated!) and books which gives it a much more "homey" touch. Solar panels also now up.
I would have lived on that porch and I regret we were here during an unusually early heat wave that didn't allow us to do the slider panels. Thanks for sharing your dream home with us to foster a dream family wedding weekend.
Mary, thank you for your review. This owner has asked us to pass along the following response:
"Thanks, Mary K., glad you had such an enjoyable time at the house and we
appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a great review. We do our
best to make sure every group has a fabulous experience.
In reviewing the House Guide, it has expanded over time based on renter
experiences, with notes that read like "rules," so we pared it down and made sure to be clear what we did leave in the guide were ideas or suggestions, not stress-inducing House Rules.
All of our mattresses are from Tuft and Needle, amongst the highest rated
mattresses in the country, and to date, we've only been asked, "Where do I
get one?" We even replaced our primary residence mattresses after trying the Tuft and Needle mattresses. Sorry the men didn't find them as amazing as most guests.
We did upgrade the internet just prior to your stay so everyone can stream
whatever entertainment they prefer anywhere they want, even down at the dock with our new high-gain, outdoor booster antenna.
Thanks again for your insights!"
Best, the Evolve Team
