Lake Hartwell Real Estate News

More Cows Are Coming

We have our share of cows who live in the Lake Hartwell area, but some famous cows will be joining us soon. One of our favorite fast-food restaurants, Chick-fil-A, will be opening at Exit 173 in Lavonia. The restaurant is already under construction on the north side of I-85 near Hill's Exxon, Zaxby's and J. Peters.  I am looking forward to taking full advantage of their great food and fantastic service just as soon as they are able to open. And Chick-fil-A's commitment to our area usually means that other popular restaurants may be considering nearby locations.  Three moo's for Chick-fil-A! 

Pin Your Cheeks Back

I'm not sure if the Miss America IX is going to be at this year's Antique Boat Festival, but if she isn't, there will be plenty more boats to look at.  The festival will be held at Hartwell Marina from April 19th to 22nd.  For details click here, and to take a virtual test ride that will pin your cheeks back, check out this video.  Don't forget to save time to let us help you find your spot on the lake.

You can lead a horse to water...

I get calls every once in a while for lakefront acreage that would be suitable for horses.  At Lake Hartwell, the Corps of Engineers controls the property immediately surrounding the lake, so it is not possible to allow your horses to make their way to the lake on their own.  I just listed this 5 acre lakefront tract in Franklin County with full access to the lake for you or your horses.  Not many of us knew there was another lake in Franklin County.  (In full disclosure, the photo above is not of the subject property, but you can click here for the photos and details.  The lake property we are selling is much prettier.)
