Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15+ with an Awesome 2-story Dock & High Dive

Waterfront Lake Home that is great for a large family or group. This is a 7 bedroom home on Logan Martin Lake, with an Awesome two-story dock. There is a glider swing under a shaded area of the dock, then a large, open section of dock to lay out in the sun. The upper part of the dock has a place to eat and sit and gaze at the sunset, with a gate that opens out for a high dive. Award-winning bass fishing right off the private dock, and cleats on the side of the pier to tie your boat if you bring it along. (We do have our own boat that stays in the boat slip, and cannot be moved). This lake haven is perfect for a family, a large group, or a business retreat. Come enjoy beautiful Fall and Winter sunsets, as well as Spring and Summer lake wildlife. Our lake home is 60% updated and remodeled. The upstairs portion of the house is older, and we like it that way! The kitchen has original wood cabinets and a small island. There are many spices and oils in the cabinets as well as coffee, tea, and honey. There are also some condiments in the fridge as well. There are many pots, pans, bowls and casserole dishes to cook with. There is a stove, a medium sized and small size refrigerator, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker.

This home also has a huge, partially enclosed porch 30x50 with an awesome lake view. A small child's play/swing set is on the porch as well as a table, chairs, rocking chair, and a ping pong table.

There are some small toddler type beds downstairs for younger children as well as a pack-n-play.

There is an outside Shower off one of the Bedrooms downstairs and an outside shower head down near the pier at the boat house.

A total of 3 king beds, 2 queen beds, and 2 double beds.

There are 3 bedrooms/2 baths on the upstairs Main floor level, and 4 bedrooms/4.5 baths on the lower level. The walk down to the pier is mostly a low slope walkway with 2 small steps on the way down. (There is no back yard grassy area to play in. ) My wife has a bad knee, and I built this lake house with her in mind to give her better access to the lake safely.

There are approximately 8 "spaces" for parking in the front yard and one covered space in the carport. The front yard is mostly gravel with some landscaped areas.

There is a 2-sided grill. It is a propane gas/charcoal grill outside the kitchen door for your use. Also in the bottom of the boat house is an outdoor fire grill that u can use wood or charcoal in.

There is Apple TV for your use to connect with.

The router is plugged in on the kitchen counter. The wifi code is on the router.

About Bill Slappey

My wife and I have 5 grown children. Our main priority in life is making Christ known to all that we can. We currently have foster children and 5 grand kids.

Perhaps our best trips have been to Grand Cayman and Israel. I love the movies Courageous and War Room by the Kendrix brothers. Stephen Curtis Chapman is my favorite singer and song writer. We love adventure and the awesomeness of God's great creation. We also love to hike.

My life motto is Prov 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart

And do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He will make your paths straight.

I surely hope we don't offend but I do love Christ with all my heart and love to talk about Him to all who want to hear.

Bill Slappey purchased this house in 2004

Why Bill Slappey chose Alabama

You just can't find many places like this where a big group or family can get together and just relax. It is so peaceful and beautiful...a lake haven.

What makes this house unique

We have this huge porch that over looks the lake that is big enough to sit and relax and even eat on, while the kids are playing as well. We have a small swing set for young kids on the porch and its big enough that you still have plenty of room to relax. Also a ping pong table that is a blast to play with 2 or 4 people.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Great weekend getaway for our group of 8! The top floor is old-school but charming, and the bottom floor is newly renovated and comfortable. We really appreciated the private bathroom for nearly every bedroom in the house - everyone felt like they had their own space. We spent the majority of the weekend on the dock - nice and spacious with beautiful views! Bill was very accommodating and quick to respond - great owner to work with!

Plenty of Room, Perfect for Ramilies, Very Serene! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a group of friends, an event, or a family of any size.

Make sure to take a jump off the dock and a long soak in the lake.

Above all, you'll love the clean sheets, gorgeous views, and memories you make here.

The owners are an incredibly welcoming, husband and wife that have been married for decades, keep God in their hearts, and go out of their way to make their guests feel at home.

Logan Martin Lake House Haven

  • 4 of 5

Large house with comfortable furniture. Ideal for a large family Christmas which my family enjoyed. Family from California and Arizona as well as various places in Alabama. Well suited for small children and would be even more delightful in Spring and Summer. Mr. Slappey responded promptly to all requests. Highly recommend this Lake House.

Great place for large groups & families

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of die hard NASCAR fans/West Point classmates stayed here for the fall Talladega race, and we had a great time. It's only 20 minutes from the track, so we didn't spend a lot of time in the car. The house has 7 bedrooms, so each of us had our own room. There is plenty of open space to sit as a group including a huge semi-enclosed porch with a ping pong table. The best feature was the newly remodeled, 2-level dock where there is a covered place to sit on top and an open place down below where there is a fire pit for fires. The weather was perfect for our visit, but the nights were cool, so we had a fire on a couple of nights during the stay...it was really nice.

The owner was great in all of our interactions and was quick to respond to any inquiry we had. He is a super nice guy who clearly cares about his guests enjoying themselves.

There is plenty of shopping options within 3 miles of the property and some decent local restaurants including good BBQ in the area.

Overall, we had a great weekend thanks to this wonderful home and kind owner.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family in from across the country for a seven day reunion. The house was clean. The beds were comfy. And there was more than enough room to accommodate all 12 of us. We had a chance to meet the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. To a person, we agree we would rent this place again!

Our whole group loved the house. It's very child friendly and the water access is wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room and a great kitchen. We enjoyed the porch and the dock. They both were a perfect place to hang out and spend time with our whole group. Also, the water in the lake was so clean - we were all super impressed.
