Amazing Location, but needs some maintenance

The location of this house on the lake is truly amazing and the views are really awesome. That is a huge, huge component here. Additionally, the house is very 'homey' and well stocked with clearly a leave a little, take a little philosophy. In the event you forgot something or need something, chances are they'll have it. The top floor is quiet and comfortable and again, lake cabin living. That said, two major issues. a) please be very very clear that the '4th bedroom' in the basement is not really a 4th bedroom. Its a cement basement with beds in it that is ONLY ACCESSED through an outside entrance. Not directly through steps down in the house. The description breezes by this and I admittedly totally missed it, but it made for a problem with small kids. Additionally, the basement needs help. It is very musty, needs a dehumidifier and some updates on beds, etc. If you have teenagers that you trust to stay down there and not sneak out or get scared great - its perfect. But if you're thinking of a comfy room for grandma or little toddlers - probably not. b) my only other note is just that generally the place is in need of some TLC. Deck needs some repair, painting, hole sin screens, etc. Interior there's signs all over the place about things that don't work and how to handle them, when they really should probably just be replaced. Master bed was ok, but other beds may need another look. Not awful and generally ok, but just 'lake cabin livin', so keep that in mind. Overall, if the owners would do some upkeep and perhaps some updates and upgrades in general this place has a LOT of potential.

Summer place

The place was great except for the new floating dock that has been added since the last night time we stayed. Other than that my family and I enjoyed everything, the new dock on the weekend is an accident waiting to happen

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect with great views. The only thing I would have liked is for the weeds to have been cut. But still give it 5 stars.

Our group of moms and daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summer Place! The out door decks and pitches were wonderful hang out spots for everyone! Can’t wait to go back!

Our family highly recommends Summer Place!

This was our 10th annual visit to Lake Martin, however, our first stay at Summer Place and we were completely impressed! This home is so roomy, everyone was very comfortable and the kitchen has well stocked cupboards with all of the pots, pans, utensils, serving trays, etc so this momma could treat her family to great homemade meals away from home. For those not wishing to bring all the groceries as I did- the marina just across from the home has a menu that looked amazing and is super cute. The outside of the home is also impressive - lots space, we spent a lot of time on the screened in porch just soaking in all the beauty and the fabulous view. the road is very private which made for nice walks and a few in our party went jogging each morning. The doc is large enough to watch all the activity up close and have your own boat and toys there to enjoy as well. We met some of the neighbors and they were super friendly too. We would definitely stay here again if it is available for our next trip!
