About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8) + Large Porch


(Please note that we have a MAXIMUM GUEST OCCUPANCY OF 8 total. Please DO NOT inquire if your group exceeds 8 guests). We are NOT available for large group events, graduations, retreats, reunions, weddings, etc. We are strictly a family rental property. We are a NO SMOKING, NO PET property - - NO EXCEPTIONS.

Come away to a peaceful family lake retreat. Enjoy over 400 feet of Lake Martin waterfront bliss on a large flat lot with plenty of room for multiple families.

After a full day of swimming, boating and skiing in a quiet slough, this 4 bedroom / 2 bath home will provide plenty of space for you and your family to rest.

(Upstairs) Master Bedroom with King bed - Two additional Queen bedrooms plus a large bathroom;

(Downstairs) Two Twin beds plus bathroom.

The Kitchen, Dining and Family room areas are all open to each other on the main level of the home. The Kitchen is very large and welcomes multiple cooks with ease. You will enjoy expansive lake views from almost every room in the house.

Perhaps one of the features your family will likely enjoy most is the extra large lakeside porch with beautiful lake views. The 800 square foot porch boasts dining area and lots of casual seating. It is also completely enclosed with gates that can be locked to keep little ones safe.

The home is centrally located on Lake Martin, a quick boat ride to Chimney Rock or Children's Harbor area. Just a 40 minute drive from Montgomery - an hour and a half from Birmingham - - you could be relaxing lakeside before sunset. Come away . . . and enjoy.

Owners are able to answer email inquiries and questions much more promptly than phone messages. Please feel free to email any questions you have regarding our vacation property and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Owners will NOT reply to inquiries without complete guest information (including number of adults and children) and complete contact information including email and phone number. Please read all information / policies before sending an inquiry.

We had a great time during our stay. The amenities are great and the view to lake is outstanding. We really enjoyed the porch and the easy access to the water. The bedroom arrangement is nice and everyone had plenty of room. The only negative was the downstairs toilet was slow flushing so we did not use it.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a secluded (protected) part of the lake but close enough to landside amenities including Anchor Bay Marina and Catherine's Market. The house itself was very accommodating for multiple guests and homey enough to feel like we were in our own home. We hope to return next year!!

Weekend at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families for a football weekend and had a blast! The house is very roomy and had plenty of bedrooms for 6 adults and 6 kids; probably could have squeezed in a few more too! The lot is great - lots of room to play outside and we thoroughly enjoyed the porch and all of the outside seating areas. Kim was great to work with also. Maybe we'll try to sneak in a weekend during the summer!!

The house was what the vrbo web site said. Everything we needed was there. Was very happy with the way vrbo and the owner handled everything. I will definitely use the vrbo web site again. Thanks for a great vacation.
