Wednesday, Aug 21, 2019  |  admin  |  At Home


The “lake country” of Georgia is a fantastic place to raise a family. There are plenty of reasons — especially if you’re thinking about living here at Harbor Club. If you have kids, you owe it to yourself to consider these six reasons why Harbor Club is a perfect place for families to call home. 

Harbor Club is an honest-to-goodness neighborhood

Harbor Club has over 80% full-time residents, whereas other communities in the lake country have as few as 20% full-time residents. Here, we have a close-knit neighborhood full of fun-loving residents. Kids can go outside and play together, just like we used to do when we were kids. That warm, comforting, family feel is one of the many reasons we were chosen as aSouthern Living-Inspired Community.

Gorgeous homes built for real life

Patriot Builders is known for its quality-built homes. Residences at Harbor Club are more than showplaces. They are homes where families can live life to the fullest. Each one includes large kitchens, thoughtfully designed laundry rooms and mudrooms, multiple spaces to play and be entertained, and lots of storage throughout. With so many appealing designs and styles, it’s easy for families to find a luxurious, yet highly-functional home here that fits their needs perfectly.

Multiple excellent educational opportunities abound

We’re fortunate to have severalexcellent schools in our area. Nearby Lake Oconee Academy is known for being a National Blue Ribbon School and one of the Top 50 Public Elementary Schools in the Nation. Also, the University of Georgia (which is one of the oldest, most notable public universities in the nation) is located a short drive away in Athens.

Several community amenities that appeal to ALL family members

No matter your hobby,there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Harbor Club. All of our residents have easy access to Lake Oconee via the Boathouse Marina. Plenty of ‘lake life’ opportunities abound, including boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing, just to name a few. Of course, there is award-winning golf atour Weiskopf/Morrish-designed course. We also have a quarter-mile track, dog park, hiking trails, a community garden, junior Olympic-sized pool, pickleball and tennis courts, a well-appointed gym, fitness center, and lots of fun exercise classes like Zumba and yoga. With all that activity, you’ll likely work up an appetite. Our Clubhouse and Boathouse Restaurants have you covered with delicious meals that appeal to a wide variety of tastes. What’s more, all of our residents rest easy knowing that Harbor Club is secure with 24/7 gate access.

A social calendar full of family-friendly events and activities

Whether you are a grandparent, parent, or kid, there are lots of fun events and activities to enjoy at Harbor Club. Besides the amenities mentioned already, we offer family night dinners, golf tournaments, junior golf camp, magic and comedy shows, trivia nights, dances, pool parties, music game show nights, game groups, themed meals (like Italian night), junior golf camp, and Sunday brunch, just to name a few. Holidays are memorable as well, with events such as Breakfast with Santa, a Fourth of July golf cart parade, Halloween Trunk-or-Treat and costume party, Mother’s Day Brunch, an outdoor Easter egg hunt, and more. 

Easy access to stores, banks, restaurants, healthcare, and recreation

Whether you have to quickly go out to pick up diapers, get some cash, or refill a prescription, there are severalgrocery stores, banks, and pharmacies nearby. If your baby has the sniffles, there are multiple excellent doctors and healthcare facilities nearby too, including an award-winning hospital just down the street from our entrance.
