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. There is plenty of boat parking with the public ramp 4 miles up Highway 34. Boats, paddle boards, jet skis etc. are all available to rent from multiple places on the lake.

Family Fun on the Lake
This was our second trip to Lake Martin and the Lodge on the Lake did not disappoint. The beautiful porch nestled in the trees on the lake was just what we were hoping for! We shared the house with another couple and had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the comfortable living space as well as the lakeside fire pit and dock! The boathouse worked perfectly as we brought our own boat and we’re just steps away from the lake every day of our stay.
Janet keeps the house stocked with all the amenities of home: full kitchen including coffee maker and blender/ blankets and pillows in the living area/ blow dryer and bath linens/ books and games/ lake accessories.... you name it!
The property was peaceful and quiet!
We were close to the few restaurants on the water as well as the local places in Dadeville.
The layout of the house worked great for our two families; our only negative comment was that the downstairs beds are too firm.
I have added the Lodge on the Lake to my favorites and hope we can visit again sometime!
Long Weekend with Family
Wow! That expresses how we felt when we approached the porch on the lodge. Our view of the lake was spectacular! Little did we know how much time would be spent on that porch looking at that view!! The weekend was planned to meet up with our daughter who is attending Auburn. It is a short 40 minute drive. This was the perfect spot to reunite our family of 4. The lodge gave the old Lake Martin authentic feel- one which allowed us to fully relax immediately. The four bedrooms and 3 baths offered plenty of space but the real treat was on the porch and lakeside deck where we spent most of our time. The owner hooked us up with a great pontoon rental delivered right to the deck which allowed us to explore the lake from dawn to dusk. Other days we just floated right off the deck for hours at a time. Janet, the owner, could not have been more accommodating or easy to work with. We treasure the memories we shared and will DEFINITELY return!!
Oh, thank you! I love that your family enjoyed every minute together. That is what makes this place so special. Wonderful guests—I can’t wait to host you again!

Celebrating our Doc at the Lake
We had a blast and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and beautiful views from the porches at 55 Waterside Lane. Janet was so easy to book with and helpful with any request I had. Thanks so much!! And don't change a thing to the upstairs bath!! Too cute as is!!
Thanks, Marsha! I am so glad you all had such a great time together. You were great guests! Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay at the lake and couldn't have asked for a better place to relax and celebrate our daughter's high school graduation. The lake was perfect, the home so comfortable and clean and the view was wonderful. The owner was very easy to work with and so accommodating and available to us. One of our best vacation rentals to date!
Oh wow—-thank you, you made my day! I am so happy you enjoyed. People like you are the best part for me. Wonderful guests-look forward to seeing you again when you can stay longer!
This great property is located on Paces Point, across from Stillwater's Golf Resort in Holiday Shores and 30 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 10 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!
