Overview

Logan Martin Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Lake House, 3 Bedrooms + LOFT, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 8 in beds) with boat dock

Welcome to 'Cocktail Cove' on Logan Martin Lake. This all-cedar cabin is perfect for your fishing get-a-way. I actually caught a 14-lb catfish off my dock in August of 2013.

Please keep in mind though, this is a fishing cabin. Don't let the big screen TV, wifi access, or gazebo fool you...it's still a fishing cabin. There maybe a few holes in the screen door, a chipped tile or two on the countertops, and a musty smell from time to time, but I know about all these things. It's just the beauty of owning a place on the lake (I work for a Certified Mold Remediation company, so I know there is NO mold in my home.). This is not the type house to have a wedding reception or a 'just-us-girls' weekend getaway. This is a 'bring a few steaks, call the guys, we're going fishing for the weekend' place.

If you're into golf, we've got Alpine Bay just a few miles down the road. It's not a great course anymore, but it's definitely not the worst I've ever played either.

I added the 50'x8' boardwalk and boat dock back in 2007 along with the almost 1500 square feet of decks surrounding the house, too. There's not a lot of furniture to fill up all the decks, but there's enough for a few people to enjoy a weekend full of sunsets and cold beers.

We do have a Subdivision Boat Launch and park just a few lots down from the cabin. You're more than welcome to launch your boat from there and leave your trailer in the park, so you can have use of your boat and your vehicle during your entire stay. Don't forget to take the boat out at night, too. That's the best time to enjoy the 'slick-as-glass' riding.

I hope you've enjoyed my honesty with this listing. There's not a large management company running the show here. It's just me, and I happen to own a lakehouse. Don't get me wrong, we love staying there when we can. My girlfriend and her 8-year old son absolutely LOVE the place. I just felt I needed to revamp this site to be a little more realistic with your expectations. I've had a few people over the years that obviously thought they were renting a $400/night bed and breakfast before they got to my cabin...They quickly realized, they weren't.

You'll have fun and relax there. That's the biggest reason we all get away.

Race Week rentals are for a 7-night minimum only. A $500 deposit (credit card, OK) will be required during each race week. (Race week rates are listed below)

About Jay Compton

I am a traveler, too, so I've tried to equip the lakehouse with everything you might need. For instance, I don't drink coffee, but I have a coffee pot there. Just bring your boat, clothes, and food. You'll have a good time.

Jay Compton purchased this house in 2006

Why Jay Compton chose Logan Martin Lake

I grew up not too far from where the lakehouse is located, and I always wanted a lake place. I had to get a little older to afford it, but my dream finally came true in 2006. Renting it on occasion, throughout the year just helps me with the upkeep and some of the bills. For that, I must say...Thank you.

What makes this house unique

I actually prefer staying at the lake during the winter. It's so quiet and peaceful, that a fire, a good book, and the greatest girl in the world are all I need to have a very relaxing weekend.

Quick lake holiday

  • 4 of 5
Great lake house, just what you need for a trip to the lake. We brought our boat, nice dock to keep it out of the sun. Plenty of room for the kids and their friends. Nice big tv, with tvs in bedrooms for the adults to escape cartoons. 2 nice bathrooms, Jay we will be coming back again for a weekend or 2 or 3.

Summer 2013 Trip

  • 3 of 5
There were some great points about this place - location to the water, boating and fishing, big screen TV, and a great shower :). But the negatives for us were the the smells in the kitchen and 1st floor bedroom, which were pretty overwhelming. Overall this is a decent fishing cabin, but not great.

Great cabin on the water!

  • 4 of 5
Even though the weather wasn't the best and water was very high, we had an awesome time! Kids loved being able to walk down a few stairs and be able to fish (1st night I think they were out till 1am or so). Would certainly stay again.

Loved the home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for my sons birthday, it was great not to much boat traffic, the boat ramp was just a stone throw away. He will never forget the birthday he learned to water ski. We can't wait to rent your house again.

the cycling family

  • 2 of 5
We had a great time on our vacation - we went cycling at Oak Mtn state park, Coldwater Mtn trails, the Chief Ladiga rail-trail, and hiking at Cheaha state park. We brought our kayaks, and it was a perfect place to just jump in and paddle around - we even went for a midnight full-moon paddle - and it was just a short paddle out to the big part of the lake ( the house is at the tip of a small "finger" of the lake). Though too cool for me, the guys went swimming off the dock. However, we found the house to be in a state of disrepair, both inside and out, which was totally unexpected based on the other reviews. Some of the railing, pickets, and decking were loose, and there were squirrels livning in the walls - my husband had to nail a board over their exit hole into the kitchen. The only outside furniture was a mildewed couch - we had to go to Wal-mart and buy folding canvas chairs to be able to sit outside. The kitchen and bath were both in need of alot of TLC , and the dishwasher was so far away from the sink, that it was unusable. It was a good price, and a good location for us, but we would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your thoughts and ideas on my lakehouse and I'm glad you guys had fun while you were there. I am proud to say that another round of remodeling will be going on again this winter, so hopefully my future renters will be able to experience a new second bathroom downstairs as well as a remodeled one upstairs. Since the house stays rented constantly during the peak season, that limits our updates to the winter months only. I have had numerous repeat renters over the years, and I would feel honored for you guys to give us another shot after the next round of updates...The cycling and kayaking will still be waiting.

Thanks again,

Jay

Great Time !

  • 5 of 5
I had my Dad and a close family friend coming to town for a fishing trip, so I decided to rent this great lake house. The house came equipped with absolutely everything we needed. The boat slip and proximity to the water were a huge plus. We had a great time, and the fishing was exceptional. Thanks Jay. I look forward to renting your home again in the near future.

For the NASCAR fans, the lakehouse is located about 10 miles or so from the Talladega track and Nascar Museum. If you're not into fast cars, then you'll be able see a few fast boats on Logan Martin Lake during the summer months. For those of us into the slower things in life, you'll appreciate the winter months inside the Lakehouse surrounded by a nice warm fire, a good book, and the slow meandering feeling of absolutely NOTHING to do the next day...In case you can't tell, I love spending winter weekends at the lake.
