Welcome to our cottage by the lake. We invite you to escape away to a newer cottage, built in 2014 on a 2.3 acre property. Measuring 2100 square feet, this four bedroom/three full bath home provides comfortable accommodations for up to 12 people. Linens, bath towels and pillows provided. The cottage's expansive parking area provides space for your boat trailer and cars. The boat ramp is less than one mile down the road.
Watch the sun rise through the trees while drinking coffee on any one of the decks or porches. Then head out on the water for a day of skiing, fishing or sightseeing. You are welcome to bring your own boat. A ramp is available less than a mile from the home at Real Island Marina, or rent one through the same marina. Our dock provides parking for two boats.
Or, maybe you decide not to go out on the water. You can spend the day lounging on the floating docks, watching the skiers and tubes fly by. Imagine putting your toes in the white sand and listening to the sound of the waves hitting the shore. Families enjoy the gentle slope of the property’s lake shore and sand bottom. Make time to float in the protected swim area. The property sits back just far enough for safe swimming, while maintaining a view of the action. There is also a large grass area perfect for badminton, corn hole or quick game of football.
Enjoy a 20x20 foot screened porch room with fireplace. It provides a casual seating area and handmade dining table for up to 14 people. Located under the canopy of the surrounding trees, it is the perfect escape from the afternoon sun. It’s a cozy spot for reading a good book, or maybe even an afternoon nap.
If you are a first time visitor to Lake Martin, we suggest a few of our favorite places. Enjoy a spectacular lake view at Kowaliga Restaurant. Just a 10-15 minute boat ride away, it offers a casual atmosphere. The Springhouse Restaurant offers a more upscale dining experience and cuisine. Make sure to stop in at Catherine’s Market for a plentiful wine selection, grocery items and deli. Both Springhouse and Catherine’s are a 15 minute boat ride across the lake. Transportation awaits you at the boat ramp and your party will be driven up the hill. Ask for a quick tour of the stables and the grounds of the Springhouse. It’s a beautiful view!
Wrap up the evening relaxing on the screened porch. Listen to the sounds of the frogs and crickets while you swap stories of the day’s events.
* The boat lift is not available for guest use. We do provide two places to tie up to the dock.
