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

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly have enjoyed our 6-day stay at Jody's Place. We leave tomorrow, but wish we could stay longer. The location is great- quiet and serene. There are lots of floor-to-ceiling windows all along the walls that face the lake, and the floor plan is very open, all of which allow a great view of the lake. I like the feeling of openness it provides. There are lots of comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms. It was just the two of us, but it's easy to see how the house could accommodate 10 people. The master bath is very roomy and has a jacuzzi and shower and double sinks. The kitchen is amazing. It is roomy and is exceptionally well-equipped. In fact, we never went to a restaurant. We brought food to prepare, so it was awesome that there are two refrigerators. The living room is spacious and the couches are very comfortable. I like the fact that the lot is flat and that the lake is just steps away. The neighbors are very friendly, too. The deck has plenty of room and is great for cooking out. I can't come up with anything negative about the place. The owners are definitely friendly, easy to work with, and very prompt. We would recommend Jody's Place and would love to return for another stay.

Very nice place, would return

  • 5 of 5

Great spot on lake in relatively quiet . The place was great--beds & couches are in need of an update. I wouldn't call the beds uncomfortable, but comfortable isn't the word is use either. Couches and pullout bed in couch would be classified as uncomfortable. Well apportioned and layout was very good. Easily sleeps 10. Owners were easy to work with and very responsive.

Excellent for a get-away

  • 5 of 5

The place comfortably accommodated 10 adults. We all arrived Friday evening and enjoyed a cookout on the grill. Nothing like waking up to the sun rising over the lake and enjoying a cup of coffee from the pier. We also enjoyed swimming in the lake as the area around the pier is clean and clear of logs/underbrush. Just a short 45 minute ride into Auburn to enjoy game day, it was great having the lake to look forward to afterward. Owners are extremely pleasant/accommodating. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house to vacation in on Lake Martin if you have ten people or under. The home was nice, the kitchen was well-equipped and there were plenty of sheets, towels, etc.

We enjoyed going by boat to Kolaliga's restaurant for our children's birthday dinner. It was a great location for us since it was only minutes away by boat or car.

The owners were very nice and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this home and would stay again.

Loved Jody's Place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for me, my husband, and two families with 8 year olds and younger teens and we loved it. The house was clean and had exactly what we needed in terms of beds and even seating areas. We had enough parking and there were ample chairs on the dock for our family members. The stairs attached to the dock were a little shaky but overall we had no trouble fishing and even getting on the boats from the dock. The owners were great to work with, very responsive to our questions and with details about the house. Overall we had a great time a the house! Very safe.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was such a quiet and relaxing trip. The house was laid out to always be able to see the water from the open rooms of the house. Fully furnished and comfortable!
