Hartwell Attractions

Sandbar Broad River

The Sandbar offers trips down the Broad River near Bowman GA. They'll shuttle you upstream and you'll spend the day kayaking 5 miles back down to showers and your car. The river features a few stretches of up to class 2 rapids so plan to get wet.

This is where we found our love for kayaking (and learned to drive a short bus through hilly dirt roads). Natalie and Gerald are good people, they have good boats and service, and a unique and exciting stretch of river. - David

Southern Hart Brewing

Southern Hart Brewing Company, located in beautiful Downtown Hartwell, GA, is the perfect setting for lunch and dinner, a craft beer or just to hangout with friends and watch the game. With many craft beer and food selections and the perfect setting, you'll never want to leave.

This might be the coolest joint in town. Suzanne and Scott offer good food, a cool atmosphere whether you're indoors or out, and fresh original brews you won't find anywhere else. - David


The Beacon Bed & Breakfast

The Beacon is a bed and breakfast in Hartwell, Georgia. A rare combination of farm and lake life, The Beacon offers five luxury suites in a new, contemporary farmhouse, lakefront access, farm animals, walking trails and full breakfast and happy hour every day.

If you're looking for a premier Lake Hartwell getaway, far enough out to be private but close enough to Hartwell to access easily, this is hands down the place. Beautiful land, delicious food, great drinks. Catharine, Sharon, and Ellen are friendly and accommodating. You won't find better hosts. Don't take our word for it though. Click that Trip Advisor link down there and read what folks are saying. - David

Market 50

Market 50 is offering homemade breads, cakes, cheesecakes, cinnamon rolls, sweet breads, cookies and pies. We carry premium quality nuts, trail mixes, dried fruits, candies, canned fruits, veggies and more. Our casseroles, chicken salad, and pimento cheese are made right here at Market 50.

Market 50 is a family-owned business that offers more awesome foods and candies and jams and spices than I care to try and list. They may be most famous for their phenomenal sandwiches and desserts, but we frequent them for their seasoning (taco, fajita, etc). - David
