,very relaxing and got the feel of the lake living.

  • 5 of 5

From the kind greeting upon arrival, my family and I enjoyed our stay,(our second stay at this log cabin house). It was great for our large family and everyone was confortable. we rented a skin boat and had kayak,paddle boards,water ski and tow doughnuts -in short ,it was a blast for the kids, and some grown ups enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting to read,relax nd unwind. air conditioning was great and ,in short ,just right!. I HOPE WE CAN STAY WITH YOU AGAIN.

GREAT FAMILY RETREAT FOR REUNION

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the property and had good spaces for everyone to sleep. The place offered us everything we needed to enjoy our time there. We were so impressed by the space and the layout of the Lake Home. We will be back...

My husband says we would have given it 5 out of 5 for a spot directly on the lake. But the use of the golf cart makes going to the lake so easy, so I guess it is really a 4 1/2.

Everything exceeded our expectations. We would love to rent this property several times a year

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed meeting the owners, their pets, and Jody the handy man. This is all inclusive and the room is spacious and having the cart is a home run. It's on the most accessible part of the lake to get to all areas of interest and just across from goat island. Our family had a terrific time, we found both daughters to be with child, and our son got engaged all in the same weekend. How could we ever forget this place- awesome all around

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin in March while attending the Lake Martin 50 Mile race that was held close by. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The pictures do not do this cabin justice. The furnishings were perfect and the layout was ideal for our two families. We cooked a meal in the kitchen and had everything we needed. The views are awesome! We were gone from the cabin a lot to attend the race, but we would love to come back again when we would could relax and enjoy the cabin more. You won't go wrong in reserving this cabin!

Beyond Words!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at the cabin and loved it once again. Leaving is always the hardest part. The cabin is always very well kept, the groundskeeper was extremely helpful and kind and of course the dogs were our buddies during our stay :) we couldn't have asked for anything better. We will be back next year! (It's the start of a new tradition for us)
