NOV, 2012 0 COMMENTS By Charles Borden For those of us who live on the shores of Lake Martin, we see, feel, smell, taste and live the majesty of this beautiful lake. One only has to view its beauty and awesomeness from places like the Kowaliga bridge, the Smith Mountain Fire Tower, the lookout at the Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail head, and Acapulco Rock to know what a treasure we have in this east-central part of Alabama. If you are a golfer, there is nothing more beautiful than the view from the course at Willow Point. If you are a fisherman, there is nothing more satisfying or peaceful than sitting quietly in a calm slough waiting on the big one to bite; or, if you are a skier or wake boarder, there is plenty of large open water on which to practice your skills. We are truly blessed! I recall that it was said in the 1950s and 1960s that Lake Martin was 99.9% pure and free of harmful chemicals. For many of us, Lake Martin is home, where we have raised families, earned livings, enjoyed the recreation that the lake provides and just enjoyed life. For these and many other reasons, we call Lake Martin a treasure. In 2010, Governor Bob Riley signed an executive order designating Lake Martin “A Treasured Alabama Lake.” This designation simply put the stamp of approval on what we already knew. Lake Martin was the first Alabama Lake with this distinction. The TAL designation provides a level of protection for generations to come, but it does not unduly restrict development around the lake. It does require strong environmental considerations in the future. Welcome to Bayou Lodge and Guesthouse on beautiful Lake Martin.

    deGravelles Family gathers at Bayou Lodge and Guest House

    House is very large and spacious. Plenty of space for everyone to be together yet also many areas for those who need alone or quiet time. Bedrooms very spacious and we were surprised that the early to bed people were not bothered by noise of late night people. Enough dining area for everyone and large well stocked kitchen with enough space for fixing food for large group of hungry people. Outdoor space was wonderful and a major gathering area for all. Nice that the water was so close to porches and easy access to boats we rented. Easy to keep an eye on everyone. Owner extremely nice and accommodating. We as a family will be forever grateful for this week we are able to spend together.

    5/5 Excellent

      PERFECT!!! Santa had no trouble finding us!😉

      Family Christmas 2018 could not have been more wonderful!!! Bayou Lodge was everything and MORE than we expected. Perfect in every way! Thank you Jason and Bridgett!

      5/5 Excellent

        Wonderful property and owners!

        We had a great trip to Bayou Lodge with 9 other couples over a long, fall weekend. The property is incredibly large and nice! While there were 20 of us in total, it never felt crowded. House is also well furnished and the owners have done a great job from the lakeside firepit, to the gameroom, to an expanded parking lot to make sure everything is perfect for an enjoyable stay. They also did a great job communicating before and during our stay to make sure everything was perfect. Couldn’t have been a better weekend - beautiful setting, great house, hospitable owners and wonderful friends!!

        5/5 Excellent

          The rooms are spacious, the property is clean and has enough room for our large “multi family” fa !

          The bayou lodge has been perfect for us! The house is so accommodating for large groups. The guest house was great for my older parents so they could stay “separate” but still connected to the rest of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the convenient location and extras. The porch across the back was a perfect place to watch the sunrise and set. Cannot wait to come back next year!

          5/5 Excellent

            An amazing house

            The house and property was the best we have stayed at on the lake. We had a lot of guests with us and the house was big enough to have everyone feel comfortable. The owner communicated well with us and was timely in giving us answers to all of our questions. We used the fire pit two different nights and it was awesome to get to spend that time together. I highly recommend this property.
