The Master bedroom has a stackable washer/dryer combo laundry room so you can do your laundry and not go home with a week's worth of dirty clothes. Or if you want, ignore it all until the end. Also, in the master you have a huge walk in shower and a jacuzzi soaker tub. Treat yourself like the queen and king you are. Upstairs there are two separate bedroom suites that share a huge bathroom with a soaker tub/shower combo. The loft bedroom has a queen bed with a shelving unit for storage/clothing and a full size daybed. There is a privacy curtain that separate the two beds to give you the "feel" of two separate rooms. The second upstairs bedroom has two twin beds and a dresser. Both rooms have a unique theme and luxury sheets and comforters. Everyone will have time to relax and decompress from the busy day of playing and having quality family time.

*Please note for guest who book the lake house between Mid Oct- Mid April. .......Lake Martin is a man made lake. Lake Martin water level begins to drop and becomes Winter Pool, meaning we will begin losing water at our dock mid Oct and water will return to our dock begining in April. They do this to get ready for the winter/spring rains. We have the community pool and canoe for water activities. If you do want to bring a boat/wave runner and take it out during this time there is a boat ramp .6 miles from the cabin that is still at full pool. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer them.
