Hilton Head Lakes is a nature lover's dream where residents enjoy a private boat-navigable 155-acre lake.

Hilton Head Lakes offers an amenity-filled lifestyle in South Carolina's Low Country. It's the area's only community that features both lakefront living with boat access and golfing, as well as a 14,000 square-foot clubhouse. The private, gated community spans 4,700 acres and is located in an area where residents can take advantage of South Carolina's history, culture, and charm.


Just 15 miles north of Savannah, Georgia, and Beaufort, South Carolina, Hilton Head Lakes is even closer to the Hilton Head Island resorts. Hop on Interstate 95 or Highway 278, and you're minutes away from a vast array of shopping, including an outlet mall,  dining at more than 300 restaurants within 20 miles, and a full complement of medical facilities. Historic Charleston, South Carolina is just 90 minutes to the north.


Once you decide on settling in South Carolina, it may be hard to choose from all the home options at Hilton Head Lakes, a community of 1,800 single-family homes. The first homes were built in 2008, and the community is not yet fully completed. The collection of amenities and selection of homes in a variety of price points makes Hilton Head Lakes especially popular with active adult homebuyers.

Benchmark Communities, formerly called Citizens Homes, features four new collections of homes in both new construction and resales. More than 15 floor plans range from 1,298 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths to 2,375 square feet with up to four bedrooms. Each home has its own two-car garage.


Impressive clubhouse amenities support an exciting social lifestyle with special events and gatherings.


Golf or water-sport enthusiasts will feel right at home living in Hilton Head Lakes. The community features a 155-acre private lake with a boat ramp and day docks to make enjoying water activities a breeze. In an area of the country filled with marshes and beaches, it's natural to want to be a part of the water-based environment — just a little removed from the crowds of tourists.

A new, 18-hole golf course, the Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes, was designed by Tom Fazio. The par-72, 7,300-yard course has five tees to accommodate all skill levels. You'll also find a 36-acre practice facility with plenty of practice greens, bunkers, and more.

A par-3 short course is a nice bonus. Hilton Head Lakes features 450 acres of nature preserves. It's not at all unusual to see egrets, wild turkeys, herons, deer, fox, and armadillos near your home. The community has 12 miles of nature trails ideal for walking or biking


Today's homebuyers will also find a variety of resale homes built by Bowshaw Residential, Seacastle Construction, H2 Builders, Reardon Homes and CR Homes. Hilton Head Lakes — not far at all from Hilton Head Island and the state's gorgeous beaches — blends lakefront living with the Low Country lifestyle. The community's private lake alone offers exciting opportunities for fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and more.

In addition to the golf courses, Hilton Head Lakes has its own 14,000 square-foot clubhouse, called the Lake Club, with a full-time, on-site activities director. You can gravitate toward the fitness center with its weight-training and cardiovascular equipment, as well as Zumba, pilates, and yoga classes.

Later, take advantage of one of the many gathering places, conference rooms, ballroom, snack bar, or catering kitchen. In the game room, take your pick of poker clubs, ladies' luncheons, a book club, and virtually anything else you can dream up.

Don't forget to stop for lunch any day of the week at the Cafe at Hilton Head Lakes Pub & Grille. The recreation offerings are rounded off with a resort-style swimming pool, an infinity pool, sun deck, boat launch, walking and biking trails, and children's playgrounds.

Hilton Head Lakes is the perfect destination for active adults wanting to enjoy the great outdoors in a beautiful lakeside setting. For more information on this community click here: Hilton Head Lakes - Hardeeville, SC
