Recent Lake Martin reviews

  • Guys' Golf Getaway

    "Myself and 3 of my golf buddies from California enjoyed a 5 night stay at "Loving Life". This was our home base, and we traveled 4 days to various Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail sites and 1 day to Auburn for a SEC football game. This house provided a perfect retreat for us with beautiful views of the lake and changing of the leaves to fall colors. Everything about the rental process and stay was perfect, and I have nothing but great things to say about the owners and accommodations. My best memories of the house will be the nightly meals, chats in front of the outdoor firelplace, and ping pong tournaments."

  • Plenty of room and cozy

    "Owner was easy and simple to work with regarding the renting process. Plenty of room and beds for my group of 14 people. Everything we needed was in the house. Loved the sunny windows! We stayed there for an Auburn game and it was about 1 hour and 15 min to campus. A bit of a drive but worth it. I'd definitely rent again for our next Auburn game. Hopefully, next time we win!"

  • Lake Martin Condo

    "We rented this unit so that we could go to the Auburn/South Carolina game. What a delightful surprise to arrive and discover the STUNNING lake view of this beautiful condo! It is right on a full, open span of water. The upscale condo was very classy and had everything we needed. It was open and spacious facilitating easy living. The bedrooms each had their own bath and were on opposite ends of the condo. This worked great to give privacy to each bedroom. We loved it all, but spent most of our time on the porch overlooking the water! No doubt we will rent this again in the future, and not just to attend Auburn games!"

  • Great!!!

    "If you get a chance to go to Lake Martin try and stay here. The house was beautiful and well equipped with towels, bedding and kitchen items. Had a small problem with the outdoor TV but we did not let it take away from our Wonderful Thanksgiving getaway. The travel time was 3.5 hours from Biloxi so it was perfect for a short getaway. Hugh was very helpful with the issue. We will be back in the spring or summer months and hope to be able to stay at this beautiful home! Thanks again for letting us stay!"

Lake Martin Travel Tips

Lake Martin is located between Birmingham and Columbus, about 50 miles northeast of Montgomery. The extensive lake is arguably the most popular recreational reservoir in Alabama. Its 700-mile shoreline is surrounded by small communities, each with their own charm and character. The one thing they all have in common is their waterside location. Boating, angling, fishing tournaments, swimming, picnicking, hiking and other outdoor pursuits can all be enjoyed in this area. For those who fancy a day of culture, nearby Montgomery has plenty of entertainment, shops, restaurants and attractions, without the congestion of the larger cities in the area. The Talledega Forest is within easy reach from your Lake Martin vacation rental, along with many attractions and festivals in the area.

Lake Martin Cabins for the Perfect Alabama Vacation

These home-away-from-home cabins have comfortable furniture for relaxing in the evening, separate bedrooms, one or more bathrooms, and fully fitted kitchens making mealtimes easy. Those requiring a special diet and families who want to eat and sleep at different times will find the flexibility of Lake Martin vacation homes absolutely ideal.

Things to do at Your Lake Martin Vacation Rentals

A vacation on Lake Martin is perfect for fishing enthusiasts.

State record striped bass have been caught here. Rent a boat from one of the many marinas in the area and spend the day out on the water. Swimming, fishing tournaments, picnicking, hiking and other outdoor pursuits can all be enjoyed from your Lake Martin vacation rental. Birding trails and wildlife watching are also popular in this rural retreat where bald eagles can be seen nesting.

Other attractions close to Lake Martin are the Fort Toulouse Jackson Park and the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park, the site of the 1814 battle between General Jackson and the Upper Creek Warriors. There are many ranger-led activities all year round at these excellent national parks.
