About the property

Sleeps up to 8. 3 Bedrooms. 2 1/2 Baths.

We have a beautiful Cape Cod style cabin on Lake Hartwell, 30 min from Clemson, SC, 1 hour from Athens and 45 min from Helen and the North Ga mountains. Freedom Lake Cabin is clad in cedar and wood, inside and out and has a spacious open floor plan. The den has an open vaulted ceiling with a flat rock hearth and wood stove providing rustic lodge-like ambiance in a relaxed and comfortable setting. It is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing vacation with family or friends.

Wooden decks wrap around most of the home, providing beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding forest. The seating area on the back deck has speakers tied into the stereo system giving you the option to listen to music both inside or outside the home. There is also a screened in section of the back deck with a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The huge front porch has rocking chairs and a porch swing and is the perfect spot to relax and read a good book or just enjoy the atmosphere.

The den area upstairs has Dish Network TV and a DVD player, a multidisc CD changer and a stereo with speakers both inside and outside of the house. A dining area sits adjacent to the den and overlooks the lake. We also have WiFi Internet.

The home has a full kitchen upstairs complete with a JennAir range top for cooking and indoor grilling, an electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. The home also has a second kitchen in the basement with a range top and a mini-fridge.

The master bedroom upstairs has a king-sized bed and is furnished with several antique pieces from the Southeastern US. The master bathroom, just off the master bedroom, has a charming antique clawfoot tub, fitted with a shower. The 2nd bedroom upstairs is also furnished with several antiques from the area, including an authentic iron bed.

The home has a fully finished basement. The wood-clad den area in the basement has a TV and a karaoke machine with hundreds of songs available.

The home’s 3rd bedroom is in the basement. It has a queen sized-bed as well as a smaller twin bed. Just off this bedroom is another full bathroom with a combo shower/tub.

Outside of the home, there is a BBQ grill. The garage, just off the den in the basement, has a collection of life vests (all shapes and sizes), floats and water toys available to use.

The property sits on Lake Hartwell, in a quiet cove. The oversized boat dock has a covered storage area for a boat as well as a sundeck perfect for sunbathing. Kids (and some adults) seem to love to jump off the sundeck into the lake.

Pontoon boat and Jet Ski rental is nearby in Lavonia and Gumlog. More information is available upon request.

Whitewater rafting and zip line tours are also nearby in Long Creek, SC, a short 45 minute drive. For more info, visit

This is truly the perfect vacation spot for families looking to get away from the big city and enjoy time together. The close proximity to Clemson and Athens also make it a perfect spot to enjoy a football weekend. Great fishing, swimming and boating await you here.

Nice house. Dock not good for hanging out on

  • 4 of 5

House worked great for our family of four and guests (12) that we had over for a cookout one night. Plenty of room and deck was convenient for us and our two dogs who made friends with the neighbors black lab who was a very sweet friendly dog. We stayed Friday night through Sunday night and had pontoon boat which we were glad we had planned on spending time on. Due to lake levels (beyond owners control) we had just enough water on one end of dock to be able to load boat. Other sides were dry. Unable to hang out and swim at dock and not sure even at high water this dock location would work best for that.

Probably should not be renters - cruise next year

  • 3 of 5

Nice house.

Dock is almost un-useable and they have their boat docked there so you cant use it if it were in any water.

Owners need to keep it as lake house. They don't need renters. Long list of items to complete when you rent from them. I really just want to relax. They complained about everything. we loaded the dishwasher but my wife forgot to start it. One of my guest, during the stay, blocked the neighbors dirt road in the dark for 30 minutes.

I lost my car keys and had to drive and get them an hour away. We were late checking out. Give me a break. It was not intentional.

We ended the trip with the owners giving us shots to us. Even that turned into as speeding ticket that was almost a DUI. Next year I am doing a cruise.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend at the cabin, plenty of space for 7 adults and our dog. We loved the board game selections and the karaoke was a blast. Next lake vacation we will definitely come back to this cabin!

Intimate and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We did not have as much time to kick back in the cabin as we would have liked. The cabin had everything that you could want on a trip to the lake. Nostalgic and cozy, spacious and eclectic. I cannot wait to return! We have taken trips all over the world and this has been hands down one of the most comfortable places to stay. Thank you for so many personal touches that made it a more special place to spend time in.

Amazing place and tons of space!

  • 5 of 5

Renting this place was a great experience for me and my family. The place is very clean, a lot more spacious than we thought and fairly priced. The energy in that house was so rejuvinating. Eating breakfast on the screened-in back porch was incredible. It was like being in a tree house. We will definitely rent again!!

This cabin was great! Very quaint and charming

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great. Our family of four along with our 3 dogs really enjoyed our stay for the thanksgiving week. It was very well equipped with all the dishes and appliances ended as well as decorated so cute. The basement was a huge hit with our kids (the teenager claimed it as his bedroom for the stay) The basement also provided a great hang out space for the kids. The lake was down due to an extreme drought but we still were able to fish and walk the bank. Our dogs swam and played with the neighbors dogs too. We will definitely be back again!!
