Overview

Lake Martin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to a place that is special to our family, and we invite your family to enjoy it as much as we have. It's all about creating memories, and this south west corner of Lake Martin(Little Kowliga Creek area) is picturesque and a great way to slow down and get away from it all.

Enjoy the great swimming area just off the pier or fish the back sloughs for many species of bass, black crappie, and catfish. Plenty of lake area on this end of the lake for skiing, tubing or a slow sunset cruise. Put in at the Kowliga Marina boat ramp just minutes away. Once you get off the major highways, it is a beautiful drive from all major cities: 95 miles to Birmingham, 35 miles, to Montgomery, 45 miles to Auburn, and 22 miles to Alexander City.

The elevated deck at the front door provides a broad view of the lake which is just 15 feet from the bottom stairs. The open great room has a 30 foot wall of windows with additional lake views. The master suite has and king bed and bathroom is spacious with double sinks and separate shower and jacuzzi tub with custom tile. A private, screened porch is just of the master suite and a great place for quiet morning coffee.

There is a bedroom off the kitchen perfect for kids with a daybed and pull out trundle. One bedroom with double bed has a half bath attached. The other bedroom with queen bed is connected to second bathroom that has a stand up shower. This bathroom also has access from a hallway. One of the two large couches folds out to a queen bed.

Once a reservation request is sent, a rental agreement will be sent electronically for signature and electronic payment. No reservation is confirmed until agreed payment is received. We want your family and friends to have a great experience while rejuvinating at this special place.

About The Owner

I am married with three young children. My house is busy! This house is a part of the estate/trust of my older brother. I am honored to be able to care for this property for the benefit of my brother's children. My brother purchased a 2 bedroom cabin and did major expansions of master suite, kitchen and office, den, and deck to make his dream home. He enjoyed it for 10 years and always loved the lake and water in general.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

What makes this house unique

I have to say the pier is the best place to gather at the end of the day. You can still soak up some last rays or take cover under tiki hut and still be social.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time Labor Day weekend! Your place was very convenient to the boat ramp and stores. The accommodations were perfect for children, teenagers and adults! We loved our time on the water as well as our family time at the house! Thanks for making our stay so easy! We will definitely be coming back next year! Sincerely, Michelle W Dothan, AL

Family friendly, well stocked kitchen

  • 4 of 5
Obviously a well loved property. Will definitely consider renting again. Location was great. The rooms were clean, the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils etc. We loved hanging out down on the dock in the hut. The house is reasonably toddler friendly, just had to move a couple of things out of reach, I just wish I had brought my baby gates to close off the raised deck so we could hang out there also. Obviously a well loved property.

Good Stay

  • 4 of 5
The large living/family room in the house is very nice and comfortable. The view of the lake from inside the house is quite good. It could be better with a few minutes spent trimming some low hanging branches. This is a great middle ground rental between the real expensive and the low budget rentals on the lake. The 4th bedroom is pretty small, but the 2 refrigerator are very nice to have. If you are looking for something with an easy walk to the lake from the house this is a good one. The lot is very flat and its only about 10 steps from the house to the waters edge.

The pier is on the small side and does need some work. We could only tie the boats, wave runners and floats up to one side of the pier because of all the exposed nails along the other side of the pier/boat dock. This could probably be repaired for $10-15 and with about 20 minutes of labor. The wood on the pier is very old and you will definitely need some type of shoes on to avoid splinters.

The location on the lake was great for us. The kids could ride wave runners and never leave our sight and we were very close to many great boating/skiing areas with lots of good water. About a 25 minute boat ride to Chimney Rock and about a 10 minute boat ride to the nearest public boat launch and very easy to get back to the house by water.

If you're trailering a boat to the house, do be careful and scout out your entry and exit before you take the boat all the way to the house so you will have a plan to get in and out. It's a little tight but we made it work with our 21 ft. boat.

Some of this may sound a little negative, but we had a great time on the trip and did enjoy the house very much and would certainly consider this house again for another rental. The owners were very responsive to all our questions and returned our deposit money faster than anyone ever has.

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had awesome stay! The house was nice and had plenty of room. Laura and Charles are wonderful people and were quick to respond to any questions. In fact, a family emergency arose and we were going to have to miss our first night and they were gracious enough to allow us to push our vacation back so we didn't miss any time. Thanks guys!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your praise. We would hope to be treated the same way if flexibility was available. Thankful everything went well with procedure and you could still have family time at the lake.

Family fun, fun, fun!

Jody's Place was home away from home when you walked in. Updated with all the conveniences. The second fridge was a great addition to handle all the food and drinks for the family. Loved the location and access to the water and the wall of windows, spectacular! Everyone thought this place was great. We will definitely rent again.
