Enjoy your stay at our cozy three bedroom cabin, tucked away on a 1-1/2 acre wooded lot, with wonderful lake views. The beautifully designed cabin has over 100 ft. of white sand beach, covered pier, floating pier, rock fireplace, and 500 square feet of screened patio with exposed wood beam ceilings. There is an additional 350 square feet of unscreened open air covered deck to enjoy for sunning or outdoor dining. The screened deck offers plenty of space to enjoy outside dining and comfortable seating while sitting under ceiling fans. The covered pier offers a cool place out of the sun, where you can fish for bass, catfish, stripers, or crappie. There is a porch swing and a ceiling fan on the pier to provide comfortable seating and a continuous breeze.

Our three bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twins) are spacious, each with a private bathroom and wonderful lake or forest views. Easy access throughout the cabin is provided by: a ramp to the front door, lever handles on all interior doors, tile / hardwood floors, and extra wide doors. The open floor plan consists of: a 20’ x 35’. living and dining area, 55" satellite TV, 65+ movie library, DVD, and board games. The great room adjoins the open kitchen to form a large gathering area, with beautiful views of the lake and grounds. The kitchen features electric appliances with granite countertops. The kitchen is stocked with all cooking utensils. There is plenty of seating to accommodate dining either indoors or outdoors. Don't forget to bring marshmallows or the fixings for s'mores. The firepit is a great place to toast marshmallows, tell stories, or sing songs.

Nearby towns offer plenty of shopping, hiking, and sightseeing. We are located 50 miles from Montgomery, 40 miles from Auburn University, 95 miles from Birmingham, and about 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta. The cabin is conveniently located in the Anchor Bay / Kowaliga Area.

2 Night minimum except Summer 4 nights and holidays which are: Memorial Day or Labor Day 4 nights, Independence Day 7 nights, Thanksgiving 4 nights, Christmas 5 nights, or New Years 3 nights.

Lake Martin water levels are controlled by a hydroelectric dam. Water is lowered by 10 ft. in the winter. This lowering begins on Oct 15 at about 2 ft. per month. The water starts to rise on Feb 20 and is back up to full pool by May 1. The fishing is still great and we have a floating pier with stairs! The best time for trophy striped bass fishing is February to May. Lake Martin is an 'Alabama Treasured Lake' and is now on the 'Alabama Bass Trail'.
