About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bathroom Home On the Lake, Only 100 Feet to the Lake

Trees and water surround this light-filled lake home. The house is close to the lake and we always have deep water at the dock. If it's a family get-together you're looking for, this home is spacious enough to sleep eight people comfortably. The house itself is set as close to the lake as possible and offers complete privacy from the quiet, cul-de-sac road. This is truly a hidden retreat for you and your loved ones.

In addition to offering a master suite on the main level, the home has a half bath on the main level, with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. In the basement is a rec room area with wet bar, another full-size bathroom, and a large bedroom. The open kitchen overlooks the eating area and family room. There's wi-fi, a big screen TV with DirecTV in the main living area, and another large TV in the master bedroom.

Our screened in porch is great for bug-free relaxing with your morning coffee or evening drinks. In the fall you can watch football all weekend long and gather everyone around the wood-burning fireplace.

The extra-wide deck spans the full width of the house, and the deck stairs take you to a path that leads to the lake. From the deck you can grill your meals overlooking the water. (but if you'd rather not cook, there are still four casual restaurants within a few miles of the house.)

The house overlooks an extra-large cove, and the land on the other side is undeveloped, so from the house or the dock, all you can see is blue water and foliage. In the cove, there's room enough to water-tube, knee-board, and water-ski. The water is 30+ feet deep out there!

The dock has a covered open slip for your boat. It also includes a swim platform, dock light, 2 power outlets, and a jet ski float dock if you decided to bring your jet ski or rent one. Also, enjoy paddling around with the canoe at the dock.

Harbor Light Marina is a 5 minutes away by boat and 10 minutes by car. Boat rentals are available at the marina.

*100 feet away from deep water.

**Covered boat slip with power

****Clemson only 20 miles away!

About Todd Stiff

Although we bought the lake lot in 1998, we didn't start building on it until August of 2014. The home was completed in February 2015.

Todd Stiff purchased this house in 2015

Why Todd Stiff chose Fair Play

This lake home is close to the water and surrounded by trees. Lake Hartwell is a lot more laid back compare to other lakes. The area where our home is located is extremely quiet with little traffic and/or road noise. The spring of 2018 will add a newly finished basement to the home, which includes another bedroom, bathroom, and rec room!

What makes this house unique

Very close to us are a few restaurants that we often frequent: Palmettos Pizza & Subs, The Spotted Pig (BBQ), and Anelo Grill (Outdoor gourmet hamburgers). The liquor store is next to Palmetto Pizza & Subs. In the same general area you can find Dollar General (for those "I forgot" items) and an Exxon gas station. If you want more restaurant selections, we recommend driving into Anderson, SC. You'll find all the commercial chain restaurants there. If you drive 30 minutes into Georgia, you will find the outlet malls of Commerce.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. Your house is so beautiful and the lake was awesome. We had a really great time in SC.

We did a little sight seeing...Chattooga Belle Farm, Issaquenna Falls, Stumphouse Tunnel and some of the scenic highways.

The Spotted Pig and Puerto Nuevo were spot on really good food.

We definitely relaxed on the deck and enjoyed the views. We did some fishing off the dock and used the canoe a few times.

My best friend has bragging rights, for the first person ever to catch a walleye on Captain Jacks boat. My brother has bragging rights for the biggest bass, a whopper at 5 lbs and I have bragging rights for catching the most fish (and ping pong champ).

All 5 of us caught fish and we hooked a couple of gar on our fishing trip with Captain Jack.

Again we can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us.

We stayed here for the weekend to attend a Clemson football game. The house had easy access to Clemson, Seneca, and the interstate. The view of the lake was beautiful, and the house was very modern and clean. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful Lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getaway! The property was exactly as described and well maintained. The area is very quiet and peace. Highly recommend this location, if you can deal with the steepness of the driveway and lake pathway.

The house is exactly as the pictures show. It is very spacious and nicely decorated. It’s nice that the owners provide the linens and towels as well as all the supplies for cooking and cleaning up! We would love to come back!

Great place and a great owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Todd makes you feel like it is your home too. Plenty to do at the house and the surrounding area. Great place to get away from it all.

Quiet Cove, Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

House is situated in a cove off the main channel that is quiet and great for fishing and tubing. It does sit on a steep hill which is almost impossible for the older folks to get to the boat dock, the younger ones can tackle it pretty easy. Boat dock has electricity and water, bonus. Driveway is a steep incline, also and trailers must be parked at the top. The perks weighed it out though. Especially once the lower part of the house is completed. There is a canoe available for use, along with life jackets and a John boat. The house itself is nice and clean with the main area open which was nice for our family get together. Internet access is touch and go as this area is somewhat remote. We found this to be a perk to get the kids interactive instead of staying in their electronics. The owner was super helpful, nice and responds quickly which is always nice. There is one store about 1.5 miles away with bait and a little deli for breakfast and lunch and any little essentials. There is a dollar Genera amd abc storel in the same area and a pizza place that's pretty awesome. The owner provides most of what you will need to get started (trash bags, dish detergent, toilet paper, etc.). Cleanup is super easy. We will choose this place again. Thanks for the great family vaca!
