About Kelli Schell

After 12 years on active duty I exited the military as a Major. My primary aircraft was the AH-64 Apache, today its the Rolls Royce powered C210T Silver Eagle. Both sides of the family are rooted in miitary service. On my mothers side my granfather flew 25 plus daylight raids of Germany and on my fathers side my grandfather was on multiple ships sunk during WWII. We enjoy everyday because the probablity of us even being here was slim. The Land surrounding the Lake house has been in our family for decades. It is where my Grandparents settled and where we have some of our fondest family memories. The Lake house is affectionately named "My Gal Sal" after the B-17 Flying Fortress that my Grandfather crewed and that crashed with him aboard in Greenland. The plane now hangs proudly in the WWII museum in New Orleans, LA.

Fantastic Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We took 16 folks here as an end of summer retreat for our company and it was amazing. I've rented other places before and they have never been stocked as well as this house was. Anything we needed, we had available to us in high quality items - pots, pans, etc. We really appreciated how every bathroom was stocked well with the necessities and the kitchen had enough paper towels, trashbags, soap, etc for our weekend. The house is stunning and well set up for a retreat. We loved that there were 2 bathrooms on every floor, and the upper and lower floor bathrooms had separated areas for grooming. This made it so much easier to deal with a lot of people. Also, the fire pit was awesome - we appreciated that Kelli and her son came down to show us how to use everything and where the amenities were stored. The dock was great for the boats we rented and everyone had a great time. My team is already asking if we can book again for next year. Thanks for the love you put into your home!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I took a total of 11 teacher leaders to My Gal Sal for our summer leadership team planning. There were more than enough beds and bathrooms to accommodate that many, and the house was just absolutely amazing... no corners cut on this one. We ate in for all meals over our three day stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and we had no problems feeding that many mouths. The conference room was well equipped with enough chairs and space to get the work done that we needed to get done. The WiFi was a little persnickety with that many people attaching all their devices, but the owners were quick to problem solve and get us going again. The "down times" were filled around the fire pit, on the dock, and walking the gravel drives. Squirrels and deer were plentiful. I will let my colleagues know about this property AFTER we schedule next year's leadership retreat.

Perfect in every way for our large family Mother's and Women's Day Celebration 2017! Adult s loved the spacious interior and the kids had lasting memories of canoeing on lake! The property is maintained in pristine condition with everything you need to feel at home...the bunkrooms worked wonderfully for our closeknit Family and we took the opportunity to room all the ladies and gentlemen separately which allowed the family to grow closer! Our family will definitely consider making this a regular location for our celebrations! The Gant Family.

The Best House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I needed a house to hold our large group for a weekend reunion, and wow, My Gal Sal was truly a jewel. Tons of space. Awesome amenities. Incredibly friendly and attentive owners. Lake Hartwell is a great place to relax and let loose and it was made even better by having a great place to stay. We were able to cook massive meals in the fully stocked kitchen. Relax by the gas fire pit into the night. Take the house Kayaks out on the water during the day. Play games of cornhole and Ladder Ball in the garage party room, and after all of that, there was a comfortable place to sleep for everyone. If you're looking for a vacation spot and you have a big family or large group of friends, look no further than My Gal Sal.
