2015_ideal_homeHilton Head Lakes Logo

Although the address may say Hardeeville, don’t be fooled—Hilton Head Lakes is perfectly situated in close proximity to the iconic southern city of Savannah and the island golf mecca of Hilton Head Island. Hilton Head Lakes offers prime accessibility just minutes off of I-95. Within a 20-minute drive, you will find the culture of Savannah or will be able to enjoy an afternoon on the pristine beaches on Hilton Head Island. Even closer is the quiet town of Bluffton and its thriving arts scene and Lowcountry cuisine.

As you enter Hilton Head Lakes through the grand entrance flanked by waterfalls, you know you have arrived at a special place. A gated community, Hilton Head Lakes provides a truly stunning nature setting for its residents. With access to their gorgeous lake, residents enjoy canoeing, kayaking and boating—they even have dock access and boat storage available.

This master-planned community that is bisected by Hwy 278, features a Tommy Fazio-designed championship golf course on the 2,000-acre golf side, while the 2,700-acre lake side features fantastic lakefront living. Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of Hilton Head Lakes is that it is completely debt-free. While the economy was in utter disarray, the developers of Hilton Head Lakes were able to complete an elegant lake club complete with dock, boat launch, infinity pool, fitness center and restaurant where residents can enjoy lake life.

One of the developers, Gary Ingersoll, told ideal-Living, “Today people love waterfront living. Due to the scarcity and expense of oceanfront property, many people can’t afford to live there. Lakefront living is a less expensive alternative to buying coastal property, and that’s why we’ve created fresh water lakes at Hilton Head Lakes.”
