Just what we were looking for!!!

  • 5 of 5

The "Best View at Lake Martin" really is that! The view was beautiful! The house was just great! Landscaped yard, steps, ramp and dock were all in perfect condition. The house was clean and exactly like the pictures showed. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything you needed. Lots of sharp knives for cutting up veggies! The bathroom upstairs must have just been renovated. Very nice shower! The beds were all comfortable. Having the bedroom downstairs was so helpful with having two little toddlers sleeping. No noise from upstairs woke them up. We enjoyed the deck very much and having two living room spaces was great in accommodating everyone's different activities. The washer and dryer were super nice!

The only problem we had was that the downstairs cable was out when we arrived. I contacted the owner and I was able to set up a time with the cable company to come fix it. It was not the owners fault at all, just one of those things that can happen, and was resolved quickly.

The house was the perfect place for our family to be together and we had such a good time that we hope to make it an annual event and be able to book the "Best View at Lake Martin" again!

Thank you!

Great place for kids

  • 5 of 5

Our grandkids loved playing in the lake. Lake access was great for the little ones since they could wade into the water. The house was wonderful with an amazing view of the lake. We all had a blast.

Great house, great location, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here. The house and the lot are even better in person that in the listing and we all loved that it has an actual beach. The house is very well equipped and we enjoyed cooking our meals there with friends. I can't think of a single complaint that any of the 6 of us had, we just had a great time. Great porch, great view, very comfortable and nicely laid out.

Boaters, the dock is nice. It is exposed to fairly continuous wave action from the main channel so bring good fenders. Nothing concerning in any way, just not in a no-wake area. Being situated on open water it is perfect for dock starts for wakeboarding or skiing when the time is right. You'll have fun here!

Beautiful place for a family get away.

  • 4 of 5

The property is clean and exactly as described. The king bed in the upstairs bedroom was extremely comfortable. The upstairs bathroom is large with newly remodeled shower which is huge and gorgeous! Large kitchen is equipped with all necessities. One suggestion would be a flat griddle for pan cakes or grilled cheese but the round pan worked ok for us. The appliances are new or fairly new. Fridge has ice maker which is handy. Oven is electric and cooked faster than we were use to but we didn't burn anything! Washer and dryer are fairly new in the lower level. Be sure to use high efficiency detergent. Downstairs bedroom is huge and has it's own bathroom. My daughter, her husband and 2 year old granddaughter were very comfortable in that room and we couldn't hear a thing when they had the door shut which worked quite well the night we got a little loud playing Mexican train at the kitchen table. We didn't even wake the baby! The swimming area by the dock is just perfect depth for small ones or just wading in the water. There were some small fish we enjoyed feeding bread to in the morning. In front of the dock is a great spot for noodling. We easily docked our small sailboat securely at night. The outside balcony was a very enjoyable spot for us to relax in the evening. The marina is only 5 minutes away and we were able to rent a pontoon boat on Mother's day. It was brand new and so comfortable to have for a day in the sun. Plenty of spots on the lake to swim or pull up to small island beaches. I would have given this property 5 stars but we did have a plumbing issue and had to leave early but the owner was fantastic and gave compensation for the inconvenience. The problem has been fixed and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! The owners take very good care of the property and are easy to contact.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing a review. I loved all the details you mentioned because it painted a vivid picture of what it is like to stay at our home. I've already purchased the flat grilled. What a great idea. So sorry you had to deal with the plumbing issue and thanks for letting me know about it so quickly. As you said the issue has been corrected. Please do come again

Two thumbs way up. We had an absolutely enjoyable stay. Now, I want to buy the place. Dadgummit! The owners have gone out of their way to ensure that nothing is lacking. They get my unconditional endorsement.
