Why Families Call Harbor Club Home

Thursday, Feb 17, 2022  |  admin  |  Real Estate


A few years ago, we shared five reasons why families love living at Lake Oconee. With over 3000 hits on that article, it certainly resonated. So we’re expanding on that topic. Why? Because we’re seeing even more young families moving to our area – and especially to Harbor Club. Here’s why so many of them like to call our Southern Living-Inspired Community home.

Remote work is here to stay

The work-from-home trend isn’t expected to slow down, and some may never return to the office. Since the pandemic, several companies have increasingly allowed more employees to work remotely. Today, most people work and get educated from anywhere there’s high-speed internet access. So, why not work from home with a gorgeous view of Lake Oconee, a pristine golf course, peaceful woods, or a tranquil pond? Why not enjoy your lunch break like never before, with access to tons of fantastic amenities located right outside your door? Many have done exactly that and are very glad they did. 

Easy access to top-notch education

One of the best schools in the state of Georgia is located just a few miles from our gates. Lake Oconee Academy (LOA) is a highly rated public charter school. Established in 2007, it caters to grades Kindergarten through 12. Since the school’s inception, LOA has been one of the highest-performing schools in the state of Georgia. Many families have moved to this area to give their children access to an outstanding education at LOA or one of the other excellent schools in the Lake Country area. And when it comes to higher education, nearby Athens is where you’ll find our state’s highly-esteemed flagship public university, the University of Georgia (UGA.) Of course, nearby Atlanta is also home to the Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, and Emory University. So, with plenty of top-notch schools so close to home, it’s no surprise that parents find Harbor Club the perfect location to gain knowledge and enjoy life.

Greensboro is country quiet, yet city close

What’s nice about living in Greensboro, Georgia, is that you’re close enough to quickly get to Atlanta (via Interstate 20) but without having to deal with the city’s accelerated pace of life. Many parents want to avoid urban annoyances, not only for themselves but for their children too. It’s a quieter lifestyle here, but you don’t have to forgo all the great things Atlanta has to offer, like professional sports, music, culture, and more. And with Atlanta’s airport only about an hour away, young professionals can still easily fly out and be back in time for fun weekend activities with the family or simply savor the relaxed pace of lake life. 

Real estate options abound

One reason Harbor Club is so successful in attracting families is because of the many real estate options available. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it at our award-winning Southern Living-Inspired Community. We happily cater to those who wish to get more value for their money. In fact, some new homeowners have opted to move out of neighboring communities to reside at Harbor Club. Even better, several of our new homes include yard maintenance, which is perfect for families who’d rather allocate that time towards golfing, boating, dining at the Clubhouse Restaurant, or simply enjoying time together at the dog park, among other fun activities. 

Harbor Club is a debt-free community and an authentic neighborhood

One of the most impressive and compelling reasons to admire Harbor Club is that it’s entirely debt-free…and the Matney family intends to keep it that way. As they remain very involved in the community, the Matneys and their hard-working team continuously add more value for Harbor Club residents and members. What’s more, Harbor Club has over 80% full-time residents — an impressive feat for a resort-style, lake, and golf community such as ours. We truly live, work, and play here. 

Visit, and you’ll quickly see that Harbor Club is a wonderful community for all ages. We’re excited about the new generation of young parents who have made Harbor Club home in their pursuit of a better quality of life. They love living here in a thriving, safe environment where fun and beauty abound. Will your family be next? There’s only one way to find out. Contact us, and let’s start planning your visit today.
