About the property

Large Cedar Home, 3 Bdrms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8, Convenient Retreat on the Water

Come relax on the shores of Alabama's most beautiful and cleanest lake. Our home is nestled beneath large oak trees on a nicely landscaped lot gently sloping to a lovely view of the lake. This authentic cedar home is in a peaceful area of the lake with nice open water for boating, swimming, fishing and all other water activities. We are in a lower density area which has less boat traffic, yet is convenient to town, River North Marina, and Wind Creek State Park.

Totally new kitchen including cabinets, granite & stainless steel appliances and nice tile floors on main level. Our home has all the conveniences you could expect from a lake house including a master bedroom and bath with antique claw foot tub perfect for soaking after a long day of activity and new plush queen mattress. A recently enclosed dining/sunroom is finished in new cedar shakes and heart pine flooring adding to the lodge feel.

The home is perfect for family gatherings, guys fishing trips, girls getaways. Come create your memories of catching that big fish, learning to ski, or curling up in the loft with a new book. Call today for details and reservations.

About Barbara Jones

Our family includes grown kids & Grandparents and we love meeting up at the lake.

There is no better place to spend the weekend watching some SEC Football with friends, or family. Fishing and boating are all great ways to relax and of course, a good dinner on the patio with some nice music from the bose speakers & cool breeze from the 3 outdoor fans make it the best place to be!

Why Barbara Jones chose Jacksons' Gap

We absolutely love Lake Martin and always wanted our own place here. It is a perfect get away, friends and family bonding relaxing kind of place. We have created many happy memories here and hope you will too!

What makes this cabin unique

Relax the moment you arrive at our lakeside home. This is truly a place to unwind, reconnect with family, friends and nature. Good fishing, boating and enjoying the wonderful gifts of nature are all waiting for you here. Not a pretentious home, yet comfortable with a lodge atmosphere to make you feel part of the natural surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful home, perfect get away for our girlfriends weekend. Water is so clear and pretty. We especially loved the sun porch with the round table for our card playing. Nice to be able to communicate via email with the WIFI setup. Hope we can all get together again next year at your nice home.

Hurricane Safe Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My family weathered out hurricane Irma at this wonderful lake house. We felt safe and had a great time in spite of worrying about our homes in Florida. Barbara was a great help, and was able to answer all questions and was very accommodating. We plan on coming back here on a family vacation under a less stressful situation.

Perfectly relaxing lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go to the lake instead of the beach for our summer vacation. It was a wonderful decision. This house had everything that we could need including the lake ambiance that we were hoping for. It's a quiet area of the lake as well which was great since we had kids. We fished and swam and ate, watched movies, played games and just had a nice laidback time with family and friends.

This is a great quiet place to enjoy some relaxation and the lake. The house is beautiful with plenty of room for a big family. We will definitely be going back not to mention Barbara was the best to work with.

Always such a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this lake house for over 7 years. It is a great location near 280 but very secluded as well. The recently updated dock is great for fishing and pulling up your boat. The newly upgraded kitchen is very nice. It always has what you need for cooking meals at the house. There are lot's of sleeping quarters, perfect for large family gatherings. There are also lots of separate seating areas where you can get away from the main crowd. We also can't say enough nice things about the family that rents this cabin. All around a great rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jane, appreciate your review. Glad the house worked well for you and your family. In case you get back again in the future, we always do a major project each year and this winter we will be rebuilding our deck for summer fun. Best, Barbara

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house in early June. You can't beat the location between Alex City and Dadeville, less than 5 minutes off of 280, yet very quiet and secluded. The house is large enough so that different groups can play games, sleep, watch television, etc. without intruding on others. Kids enjoyed swimming in the lake off of the dock. Kitchen is well appointed with plenty of utensils and a large refrigerator.
