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.


Kelli Schell purchased this house in 2014

Absolute perfection for corporate retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely DYNAMITE for a corporate retreat or large gathering. We had our real estate team of 15 stay for 2 nights for our annual planning meeting. The house is incredibly well-designed for large groups, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to entertain a large crowd, technology and seating make for thoughtful meeting space, and the owners are wonderful about answering questions and helping prepare for your trip! This stay could not have been better! Thank you My Gal Sal for a great team retreat!

UnDiscovered Country

  • 5 of 5

Looking for an out of the way, country, mountain setting? Reserve this place.

Hartwell is nice little town with the friendliest people you will find anywhere.

First class accommodations and great golf courses nearby.

Very comfortable beds and everything you can think of in the kitchen.

Gas outdoor fireplace is a definite plus.

Kelli is a great hostess.

Great team or large family getaway option close to Atlanta!

  • 5 of 5

Kelli was very easy to coordinate with and her home was ideally suited to meet the needs of our company team retreat. The location was convenient and the house had everything we could want to prepare meals and conduct our sessions in a variety of settings. Really great!

What a wonderful place for just about any event/weekend you want to have!

  • 5 of 5

We went there with family and friends to celebrate a bachelorette. It was awesome! The amount of attention to details to make everyone's stay as luxurious as possible did not go unnoticed. Those who slept in the bunk beds raved about the comfort as those in the individual bedrooms. Would recommend this place to anyone!!
