About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full baths with Beautiful Lake Views and large Screened Porch

Enjoy lakefront living in this charming one-level lake cabin in the Parker Creek area, 15 minutes from Alexander City off of Highway 280. In a very private setting (concrete driveway is approximately 500 feet in a very wooded area) with over 700 feet of waterfront, you are only a few steps from the water or dock.

With a floating and stationary dock for your boat or personal watercraft (water at dock is approximately 26 feet deep in summer (15 feet in winter), and a boat house in the back of the lot, you can enjoy lake living at its best. Take in the big water view while swimming without boat traffic thanks to a very quiet part of the lake which has little boat traffic – mostly fishing boats. Woods on both sides of the property make it feel like you have your own piece of paradise! Best of all with its eastern exposure you'll enjoy beautiful late afternoons/evenings as the sun sets behind the house and the sunlight on the water is breathtaking.

With Charter high-speed WiFi and TV cable reception, you are connected as much as you would like. The new 55” flat screen TV and Blu-Ray player allow watching sports and movies.

You will enjoy the large lake style screened porch with tile floors and nice views! The ping pong table is also on the screened in porch, and can be kept open or closed. The large deck area has plenty of room for deck chairs. Adirondack chairs for sunning are situated on a separate patio close to the master suite. The Weber charcoal grill is available for any outdoor cookouts.

The house is only 30 feet from the water, with a few easy steps to the docks. The huge screened in porch allows outdoor living throughout the spring, summer and fall. There is ample outside area for fishing, gathering, cooking and visiting – with one side of the lot completely undeveloped and very private.

The cabin has an open floor plan with a wood-burning fireplace in the living area with very comfortable overstuffed chairs and large sofa and ottomans (all new furniture in living room). The laundry room is off of the living area making it easy to do laundry when needed. Great for families, fishing, swimming and kayaking, paddle boating (all kept in the storage house for use) or a peaceful retreat. There are several uninhabited islands that are perfect for kayaking/boating to for exploration and picnics. Plenty of parking right at the backdoor of the cabin so moving in and out is a breeze. This is a quiet, low-key part of the lake. You will see plenty of deer when you are on the road to the cabin since this is a very quiet, undeveloped area.


You are a 15 minute car ride to Willow Point, and a 20 minute ride to Catherine’s Market and Spring house Restaurant, and 25 minutes to Kowaliga Restaurant. You are a 15 minute car ride from Big B Bar B Q, La Posada Mexican Cantina, Ruby Tuesday’s and Who’s Diner in Alexander City. The cabin is very convenient for any events at Willow Point as it is a 10 minute boat ride, and 15 minute car ride.

PARKER CREEK MARINA and The Landing Grill are a 10 minute boat ride away.

Boat rentals should be available from the larger marinas.

Auburn is 45 minutes away.

BOAT RAMP: There is a public boat ramp approximately 4 miles from the house by car.

Gorgeous Lake Evacu-cation

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Forsyth's lake home last minute, as our family was under mandatory evacuation in Florida from Hurricane Irma. From the moment we entered their home, after 14 hours on the road, a sigh of relief overcame each and every one of us. There was more than enough space for our family of eight adults and more than enough fun to keep our minds relaxed and distracted from the problems at home. Their house was very clean and had all the necessities we could have needed for a long weekend. We filled our days by taking out the kayak, canoe, and paddleboat, swimming in the pristine waters, hiking, observing the ducks and baby deer on property, and the daily competition of table tennis and other games from the game closet. The night before check out when we realized we would need to extend our stay away from home, Stephen and Peggy generously offered us their home for an additional couple nights at no additional charge. We can not thank them enough for their kindness! Their home provided comfort and fun in a time of distress. Whether you are a family or group of friends, I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a lake retreat!!

Peaceful slice of lake heaven

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend/reunion of sorts. We were 4 adults and one child. The house is cozy, comfortable and well-equipped. We had just about everything we needed- an amazing view, a chance to use the kayak to paddle about and lots of time to catch up together. We enjoyed having lunch down on the dock and we had a cute family of ducks come visit. We also really appreciated having staples like flour, salt & pepper, etc on hand.

It was an easy drive to the Springhouse restaurant for a fabulous dinner and was easy to prepare some amazing meals in the house as well. It is evident that the Forsyth's have put a lot of care into this home.

I highly recommend this rental- even on Labor Day weekend this area of the lake isn't too busy.

A fantastic vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having moved from the Montgomery area 9 years ago, our only son wanted to rent a lake home similar to the one he grew up going to. This property was ideal! An incredible water view, the house is very lovely and comfortable, and the dock worked perfectly for our boat, sea doo, and water toys. The home is a treat whether you are in the water or in the house! The location is convenient since Alex City is close enough to have dinner in town, pick up supplies, or shop! By boat, the home is close to many marinas. The owner was accommodating and immediately responsive when we had to reach out to him due to a plumbing problem. The issue was quickly rectified because it was a city water issue. But we were so appreciative of the owner's willingness to make sure that all was ok. He even made a trip from Birmingham the next day to ensure that there was not a problem within the house. That was the first day of our trip and the rest of our 10 days could not have been any more ideal! We had just enough sunshine and water time plus a few rain showers for resting and reading! Sitting out on the adirondacks at sunset is as peaceful as it gets! This is a wonderful property...we highly recommend!!!

Perfect for a Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Used this property for a planning retreat with three other women. It worked well with the four bedrooms and three baths. Enjoyed meeting in the spacious living room with comfortable furniture and a wonderful view of the lake. Kitchen met our needs. Also liked the deck for morning coffee and evening meals. It was easy to find though the property is isolated.

Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the pier and the boat dock was perfect for our boat. We also took advantage of the kayak and paddle boat. We usually go to dauphin island for our summer vacation, but it will be hard to not come here next year.
