4 bd/3ba PRIVATE, convenient and perfect! Spectacular lake views all around.Fun!
Remodeled old lake house as a lake house should be! This is a special house on a special property with unbelievable 180" views and huge lakefront. Fish from the large dock or park your own boat in the boat house. The water is fine and nothing short of fun for everyone. The tree-filled property allows a stroll to the point or simply enjoy sunrise/sunset from the huge covered deck looking over it all. Large Master w/King bed and Queen sleeper. 2nd bedroom on main floor with Queen poster bed. Upstairs rooms - 3rd bedroom 3 twin beds, 4th bedroom has 1 Full bed. There are beds for 11 heads -- with luxury linens and towels! This is a place for fun! You won't be disappointed with this lodge. The upstairs bath is remaining original to its "70's vibe". If your kids don't know anything about the 70's, here is a perfect example of the retro feel. I am taking votes - does it stay or be remodeled?
This is an amazing property that still has the old time charm of a lake cabin but with modern conveniences! You will love, love, love the new covered deck that allows you to see the world on the lake and be outdoors rain or shine (yes, we do have those rainy days- but the whole crowd can be on the deck if so.) A charming, fully appointed kitchen with stainless appliances exists but the outside grill is the way to go. You are carefree here---the house is set up for everyone to enjoy. Grab a book and curl up in the window seat, a huge cabinet is filled with games and a big screen TV sits over the fireplace and in the Master for those special games or programs, WiFi, and did I mention a huge dock for swimming and outdoor play? The boat house is yours to enjoy so bring your boat or jet skis! As you know, the place to be at Lake Martin is in the water! We just built a fire pit by the waters edge - bring your own wood and enjoy some s'mores or the flicker of flames. Get the character feel of a lodge or cottage on the lake on 55 Waterside Lane.
It is a happy place.

About Janet Griffin
My husband (John) and I are a career military family and have moved so many times it is not even funny but it has been a great life of adventure. We found our "home" on the lake and hope to build many years of memories as our children grow and start their own families just as you can. I (Janet) am from Idaho and had a hard time assimilating to the south except that I did go to Huntingdon College in Montgomery. John is from S. Carolina (yep- a Clemson boy) and loves the water. We have 2 children, Cam and Josie, and are almost empty-nesters. We live in Panama City and have maybe one more move to go!
Janet Griffin purchased this House in 2015
Why Janet Griffin chose Dadeville
We have dear friends who live at Lake Martin and over the past 4 years, we visited more and more, stayed longer and found it harder and harder to leave. We wanted a place that our family could enjoy as they grow--kind of a legacy. Nothing too fancy but something that you could just relax and have fun with. I think we found it with this house but it needed lots of updates! So, we have been working hard on it all spring and summer and really hope you fall in love with the easy nature of it and that your family can make memories here.
What makes this House unique
Benefits of this house.......the inspiration of the lake, from every room! The property is enormous and you have all the way to the point of land to enjoy. No one is next to you so you have so much privacy and space to spread out. I don't like feeling like I am in a subdivision---that is what we all leave behind. I wanted it to be natural, not fussy. The windows from the living room bring the lake right to you and the outside deck adds so much outdoor space that you only need to sleep indoors! The deck is huge, covered and looks over it all! We just added a very natural fire pit next to the water - a perfect addition for fall. I also like being close to some restaurants and clubs if I want to go out. This property lets you do it all. Oh, and the boathouse is yours to enjoy. The Stillwater's dock - Harbor Point is close so bring your boat! I have concierge service at The Lake Martin Experience if you need to rent boats, paddle boards, jet skis etc..

Great house...great trip!
This house was perfect for our weekend getaway. Very nice on the inside and out...couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Will definitely stay there again!
A perfect place for family gathering
We really enjoyed staying at the Lodge on the Lake! From the floor plan to the furnishings, from the porch to the lakeside, it was perfect! Owner was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for sharing your home!!
Lovely Weekend Retreat
What a clean, lovely and enjoyable weekend. Janet was a joy to work with and our family have a great time! We'll definitely return.
Rob and Megan, thank you for choosing the lodge. I am so glad you enjoyed. See you this summer!
Everything was perfect
Great home and location, thank you!
Thank you Brad. Nice way to kick off the new year!
Awesome property and location!
We enjoyed our visit to Lake Martin and this home was perfect for our group of 8 (2 families)! The fire pit and the deck were wonderful! The location was perfect for us as we traveled in both directions - to Birmingham and to Auburn during our stay! Game closet was great also and offered fun for everyone.
Highly recommend this home as a great vacation get away.
Thank you Gayla! I was so happy that you could have your family time at the lodge. You were perfect guests----complete with a winning game. Come back any time!
I would like to say Thank you Mrs Janet for letting us stay at your beautiful home on the lake. Everything was breathtaking and relaxing. Thank you for everything Mrs Janet
Christie, it makes me happy to know that we had a small part in bringing your family together at such important crossroads. You should be proud of your children and the values they represent. Thanks for the nice words!!
This great property is located on Paces Point, across the slough from Stillwaters Golf Resort in Holiday Shores and 35 minutes from Auburn. The beauty of this location is that you have an acre and a half to roam - not shoulder to shoulder with another house or strangers. You can run to the local new grocery, boat to dinner, drive to dinner, order pizza or go out dancing ---all within 15 minutes! Also, this property is one of 3 on the lane so you have lots of room and privacy to run and play, swim, float, boat, jet ski, ponder life..... either from the large covered deck or at waters edge!
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Hello! I am really trying to keep my rates as low as I can so families can enjoy the lake. I do like to keep things simple and do not accept credit cards unless absolutely necessary as their fees are 3%. Instead, when I email you the lease, I ask for 50% at booking with personal check, you pay the VRBO service fee with a credit card,(sorry about that --they insist!). 30 days prior to your stay mail me the remaining balance and a separate check for a $400 security deposit that I just hold until checkout, then either destroy or mail back to you. That way you don't have so much invested. I have the best renters and haven't needed any deductions yet!! Thank you for working with me! Janet (owner)
