About Kelly or Jon Baker

We traveled to Lake Martin with our 6 children several summers before deciding to purchase our own home. Great place for family vacations in the summer and nice cool fall nights in front of the enormous fireplace.

Kelly or Jon Baker purchased this house in 2015

Why Kelly or Jon Baker chose Jacksons' Gap

As an Auburn graduate and born and raised in Alabama, I decided to get closer to my 'Bama roots. My husband spent his childhood summers in the north fishing. We love the serenity of lakeside living.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of the incredible views. Because of Point Windy peninsula, you can see sunsets at night from the back and sunrises from the front. We like the north part of the lake because there is less boat traffic but easy 15 minute boat ride to Chimney Rock or to Kowaliga for lunch.

It was perfect for our growing family.

  • 5 of 5

Blue moon is the perfect house for family fun. We love the open den and dining area. The gazebo on the water is so nice. My 5 year old grandson learned to fish for bream, our 16 month old grandson had the large grassy yard to play in and my 89 year old daddy was able to sit in the shade and enjoy it.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to make family memories with several generations of your family at Blue Moon. Lots of fish under the gazebo and off the dock. Hope you will visit us again. Kelly and Jon Baker

Great Back To School Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with 5 kids (ages 6-9) between us, house was perfectly setup to accommodate us. We rented a pontoon from Lakeside Marina Bay Pines, which was right around the corner and they let us keep the boat docked at the house, there was a covered spot for it. The house is well stocked, but bring your own toilet paper, paper towel, garbage bags, beach towels and laundry detergent. We did find dishwasher detergent, foil, plastic wrap and baggies but I'm not sure if those are supplied or just left over from other visitors. There were hair dryers, lots of hotel size shampoos, conditioners and soaps. There was propane in the grill. Beds are comfy. The house does show it's age in spots, but it is very well taken care of and we had no issues.

We enjoyed our days on the lake but the kids really seemed to like swimming and fishing off the dock - they caught plenty of fish! There are turtles everywhere, so watch your hooks :)

Family of ducks that visit and are obviously well fed by all the guests. We never saw any bugs in the house, but night time did bring some palmetto bugs to the outside. It didn't stop us from enjoying night fishing and s'mores by the fire pit.

We will definitely be back and plan on making this an annual back-to-school trip!

Owner's Response: Kristen, Glad you had a good back to school trip at Blue Moon on Lake Martin. Sounds like the kids and adults had a good time fishing, swimming, and boating. We try to supply basic items to accommodate the length of stay by supplying paper products and kitchen necessities like foil, saran wrap, etc.... We do hope you will come back to Blue Moon next summer but Lake Martin is equally special in fall and winter months. Thank you. Kelly and Jon Baker

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Blue Moon. With ages ranging from 6 to 75 finding something that makes everyone happy can be challenging. The house was lovely and the amenities and water access were great. Could sit on the porch for days and just enjoy the view. Had a great breeze that made even the July heat bearable. Kelly was super responsive and clearly has this down to a science. I highly recommend a visit.

Owner's Response: Kathy, Glad you had a great time at Blue Moon. Yes, we do enjoy the many activities at the lake but especially watching sunset on the porch in a rocking chair. Plenty of games, TV, and water activities for all ages. We hope you will come back next summer but also Lake Martin is special during the fall and winter months. Thank you. Kelly and Jon Baker

Great Place for our large family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Blue Moon. The house was laid out perfectly for all ages from 21 months to 90 years old. It was great to be a few steps from the water, but still have a yard for the kids to play in. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay at Blue Moon with your family. We love having a flat, large yard by the water to enjoy playtime, cornhole, and badminton. We also love that you can watch from the upper deck or from the waterside cabana or the dock. We do hope you will come back again and enjoy Blue Moon on Lake Martin. Jon and Kelly

Wonderfully relaxing family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our family vacation at this property. Our family, including teenagers, CANNOT WAIT to return next summer and definitely hope to stay at this property again. Property was "ad advertised" and everything we needed was convenient and accessible (Dollar General within 5 minutes, Marina for boat rental/gas within 5 minutes by boat and car, and Wal-Mart within 10 minutes). Location on the lake is perfect for swimming, tubing, skiing, fishing, boating and very quiet at night to just relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Owner is very responsive. Anyone looking for a place to stay on Lake Martin and enjoy a relaxing get-away, this is the place!!
