                        Wow what an awesome trip! The cabin was absolutely beautiful! The owners Rich and Gail were wonderful! They made us feel very welcomed. I am glad we were able to meet them! The cabin had every amentity you could ever need. We grilled steaks the first night of our stay and everything a cook needed was there. Plenty of room for big families and places to sleep. The cabin is breathtaking. Just walking in the door we were both blown away by how nice it is. The 3 labs that live on the property also came up to give us some company. They were great and loved escorting us down to the water. The boat ramp and dock was a major highlight! Made launching and recovering a breeze. We took the boat out and caught some fish, ate at Kowaliga Restaurant and enjoyed being out on the beautiful lake. Thanks again Rich and Gail for letting us stay on your wonderful property! Can't wait to come back!

                        Spent 4 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. The best time ever! This cabin is so unique and so comfortable, we can't wait to go back!!! We loved it - our grandchildren loved it and especially use of the golf cart. A perfect experience all around. The cabin is spacious and cozy and we didn't want to leave!! We will DEFINITELY be going back...........SOON!

                        We had about 13 guys staying in the cabin to have a college reunion/bachelor party weekend. The cabin itself and location was incredible. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and we loved having multiple TVs and surround sound for all of the football games on. There were also plenty of extra towels, sheets, pillows so we had everything we needed. The golf cart was helpful carrying supplies back and forth from the cabin to the dock. We are already planning another trip next year and some of us planning combined family trips as well. Looking forward to many more great stays here!!

                        There is no doubt in my mind that we will stay here again. Gail & Rich were very nice, the cabin was perfect, the property is beautiful, and my family will never forget this time together. My husband, three sons (10 yrs, 8 yrs, 9 mos), and I stayed here three nights in early Sep and the weather was great. All of us loved the dogs and I can honestly say that this trip wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for Java, Chino, and Cocoa! Thank you for sharing your loves with us!! A few of our favorite things were roasting marshmallows at the fire pit (possibly the best part for the kids), jumping off of the top deck into the lake, fishing, taking the golf cart down to the water, the screened in porch w/stereo system which you can hear down at the fire pit, the dart board, and the original Nintendo. Everything was very clean and welcoming. Staying here, you’re only 15 minutes from a Walmart/gas/etc and less than an hour from Auburn University. We’re definitely coming back next spring!! Things to consider bringing: coffee/creamer, griddle if you cook for a lot of people, booster seat/pack-n-play/baby gate for little ones, dog treats, and a throwing arm to keep Java occupied :) Thank you, Gail and Rich! We made lifetime memories and look forward to our next visit!

                        Our whole family loved our time at the cabin and the lake. The grandchildren are still talking about it and wanting to go back as soon as possible. The lake is so beautiful and peaceful, it was a relaxing and fun time. The cabin was great.

                        Wow! I don't know where to start. From the beginning Gail and Rich were thee sweetest most genuine people we have met. My boyfriend travels for work and we were looking for a place for an extended stay. We couldn't have found a better place to suit us. The outside and inside blew our expectations from the get go. The cabin was immaculate and had the brand new wood smell. As we went on a tour of the cabin it only got better as they were showing us around. Pictures do not do this cabin justice. It's the most comfortable, clean, accomodating place we have ever stayed in. It has more then enough room for a big family to where you would all have your own place to getaway if you wanted some quiet time to yourself. From the elite fully stocked kitchen, a beautiful washer and dryer, a dual bbq (which we used practically everynight), and a screened in porch with ipod connections. I could go on forever about all the different amentities that go beyond what we expected. We could not have asked for anything more. Gail and Rich also gave us full access to the 2 story deck, and a golf cart to ride down to the dock. Although my boyfriend had to work 70 hours a week, I took advantage for the both of us and laid out on the deck every day of the week. I had their 3 pups, Java, Chino, and Cocoa to keep me company and they are defintely well behaved and the sweetest dogs. We got so attached to them that it was hard to have to leave not only the puppies but the house as well. We could not thank Gail and Rich enough for extending our stay for us and opening their home for the time we were there.I would recommend this place to anyone and continue to give unlimited kudos to Gail and Rich for building such a remarkable place. We will be back for many more summers and bring along our families next time so they can see how perfect this place is. THANK YOU GAIL AND RICH!!

                        Owner response: Stephanie and Jeromy, your review could not have been nicer, it's so good to hear that y'all think as much of the cabin as we do. We love your appreciation of all it offers as well as for our beautiful and entertaining labs! We truly hope to see you and all your family here soon! Enjoy your travels and always know, Tallassee awaits you!

                        My family enjoyed our week long stay at this beautiful cabin. We enjoyed all of the amenities that were available to us. The boat dock was perfect for our boat and jet ski and for relaxing with our family while our children played in the water. The location of the cabin is located just minutes from Chimney Rock, Chuck's Marina and other points of interest on Lake Martin. The cabin was clean, well maintained and just perfect with lots of room for the kids to play and for the adults to relax. The owners provided us with all the amenities a family could need, Rich and Gail were very hospitable and strived to make sure we had everything that we needed during our stay. We can't wait to come back again. We had a great time and enjoyed everything that this cabin and location had to offer. We also enjoyed Chino, Java and Cocoa! Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

                        This is an absolutely beautiful house with an incredible place to hang out at the lake! We had a great time and would not hesitate to recommend this place to our friends! The photos do not do this house justice. It is incredible! Everything was clean and well-maintained. We needed a place to stay close to Children's Harbor for our daughter's wedding. This place was perfect! I hope we can stay there again in the future.

                        We'd never been to Lake Martin so we spent a long weekend at Gail and Rich's cabin to check everything out. The cabin is wonderfully outfitted and meeting Gail and Rich made the weekend even more enjoyable. The lake is beautiful and this location seems to be optimal for much of the highlights on Lake Martin. We look forward to spending some of our summer here! Great place for family's with children. Very kid friendly. Our three boys had a fantastic time as well.
