About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

12 Cricket Lane is located on the water in beautiful Bolton Cove. There are 10 foot ceilings throughout, decorator furnishings, and lots of wood and stone. Two covered porches provide pleasant places to relax.

Bolton Cove is a gated community on Lake Martin with only a few homes and with many wonderful amenities. You can enjoy the community swimming pool, get sand between your toes on the sandy beach, park a boat at the large first class boat dock, take a walk on the 8 foot wide boardwalk running the entire waterfront, stroll around the community, feed the occasional ducks, take the children up to the children's playground, or peddle around the cove on the complimentary pedal boats.

In addition to the included pedal boats, enjoy the lake on our optional 22 ft pontoon boat. With a 115 hp engine it has enough power to pull your friends or the children.

There are 3 bedrooms, an additional 4th large playroom/ bedroom and 3 1/2 baths. The master bedroom has a king bed, large windows looking out on the lake, a private bath, designer tub, separate shower, flat screen TV and a private covered porch. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a flat screen TV. The third bedroom has a single over double bunk bed, another single bed and a flat screen TV. The playroom/bedroom has a single over double bunk, 2 fold out futon couch/beds, and a large flat screen TV. There are are Blue Ray/DVD players in the great room and playroom.

The kitchen has lots of granite, high end refrigerator and stove, and a wine cooler. It is an open kitchen opening out into the great room which then opens onto a covered porch with relaxed seating and a nice propane grill. There is a large 50 inch flat screen TV in the great room.

Lake Martin at the time it was created in 1926 by damming the Tallapoosa River was, with over 750 miles of shoreline, the largest man made lake in the world.

RATES: (see below)

OPTIONAL PONTOON BOAT: If you are interested in renting the pontoon boat for an additional $150 per day or $950 per week during May 1st-Sept 15, please let us know!




(Due to housekeeping's varying schedule, early check-ins are not allowed and there will be additional fees for late checkouts).

Tranquil Setting - Awesome Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and well appointed. This place had everything we needed for cooking Thanksgiving dinner, watching football and entertaining grandchildren. The lower water level provided a great area for treasure hunting with the metal detector. Can't image how much fun it would be in summer!! But we're going to find out!

It was very nice and comfortable. Having the playground, swimming pool, peddle boats, kayaks and pontoon boat gave something for everyone of all ages to do. My family really enjoyed everything about the accommodations. /we had ages 1 to 61 and everyone has happy. Would highly recommend!

Absolutely perfect......Highest recommendation ever given!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our family vacation at Lake Martin. Rented unit 12 at Bolton Cove based solely on the reviews of others. We have never really had a bad experience using VRBO, but this rental was (by far) the best one yet. Despite the raving reviews we read from others, the Bolton Cove rental far exceeded our expectations.

For starters, the communication with the owner was fantastic from start to finish. He replied to all emails quickly, sent out perfect instructions when it came close to check-in, and answered/returned phone calls immediately during our stay.

The house was terrific....plenty of room for our party of 10...four adults and six pre-teens/teenagers. The pool is right next door and was clean and very relaxing...plenty of floats and water toys. Do yourself a favor and splurge on the boat rental. It was well worth the money! We were able to explore the lake, including a trip to Chimney Rock and a meal at Kowaliga. The two marinas that were close to the house (Smith's and Parker Creek) were easily accessible and the people there were great. I agree with the previous reviewer....don't miss a chance at getting frozen yogurt at Smith's.

We cooked most every meal at the house and the unit had plenty of cookware and utensils. Don't worry about towels and linens....plenty for all.

I can honestly say this is the best rental we have stayed at (out of ten or so) and we definitely will be making a return trip. Bolton Cove definitely gets my highest recommendation.

Wow! So nice and relaxing! Everything you need for a wonderful lake vacation right at your door!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bolton Cove! It was our first time to try a lake vacation and it won us over! Staying at BC had everything our family of 9 needed - room to sleep, bathe, relax, a grill with a balcony, a pool to cool off in, kayaks, a small beach, fishing on the grounds and the pontoon boat! The boat rental really made the vacation incredible! We had a great time trying out all the places to eat, the marinas, and Smith's marina was awesome! You need to try the yogurt there - it's only a 5 minute boat ride! The water is really nice at Lake Martin. All in all, it was everything we could have wanted in a memorable family vacation and working with Courtland, the owner, was always a pleasure! Thanks!!
