Historic Downtown Hartwell has many fantastic dining and shopping experiences, all locally-owned within a two block radius. Hartwell Suites is located across the street from a coffee shop with specialty market, and close to six restaurants / pubs, art galleries, pharmacies, and several boutique shops.
Lake Hartwell is a man-made lake that sits on the Georgia and South Carolina border. The lake was formed as a flood control and hydropower project by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over 60 years ago. Three main rivers flow into the lake, which are the Savannah, Tugaloo, and Seneca rivers.
The lake covers 56,000 acres and has over 900 miles of shoreline and provides excellent opportunities to fish, camp, boat, or a number of other activities for those that prefer the outdoors.
