Great place, was everything it needed to be

  • 4 of 5

A bunch of buddies and I stayed here for a Clemson home game. Very easy access to the stadium given its location. Everyone had a bed, the cabin is set up perfectly for trips with lots of folks who may need individual beds, nobody had to bunk up together. Only 4 stars instead of 5 because this property is on the lake and we rented a boat but the lake was so far down that the cabin does not actually have lake access. I understand this is outside of the control of the homeowner, but people should know if they are expecting a place on the lake that it is contingent upon the current lake levels. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking at it, would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Yes the water is currently down 9 feet which makes it difficult for most lake cove properties. You are welcome to beach your boat or use our 20’ boat slip at Clemson Marina. Clemson Marina can also provide a rental boat and slip if you rent from them. Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope we see you back soon!

Great cabin -- private and clean.

  • 4 of 5

The water was down in the lake so we weren't able to enjoy the dock as we might have, but otherwise we had a wonderfully quiet respite for a few days just minutes from Clemson University. The cabin was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The TV on the main level was not working correctly, and when I texted Susan (the property manager) about it, she and her husband got right on it. They came as soon as possible with new equipment and installed it on the spot. We really appreciated it. We had a perfect view of the 2017 solar eclipse from the front steps of the cabin. That was the only shadow cast over our experience at the Lake Hartwell Cabin. :-)

The house was very peaceful and serene -- with plenty of room and space for everyone. Everything was clean and comfortable. Susan was so accommodating and extremely responsive to my many questions and requests!

We are already planning next year's trip. Thanks for the great stay!
