About Lake Hartwell

Lake Hartwell is the largest lake in the southeast with over 56.000 acres of water and almost 1000 miles of shoreline. Drivers on I85 are treated to several post card views as they travel between Atlanta and Greenville. The interstate passes over the lake five separate times. The interstate also ensures easy access to most of the lake as it bisects the lake into two sections. The south lake is characterized by longer views and an active sailing community. The north lake is composed of quiet coves which feed the main channels of the Tugaloo and Seneca rivers. Lake Hartwell is known for its natural beauty and owners there are more interested in water sports, fishing and visiting with friends than country clubs and speed boats. The sheer size of the lake ensures that there are a large number of available properties, and Lake Hartwell is considered one of the best values around with lakefront cabins beginning around $250,000.
