We have reserved the Lodge at Cocktail Slough for the Lake Martin 100, about 2 miles from the start. There are 10 rooms with private baths available for the race weekend. There is a two night minimum, Friday and Saturday night. The rooms are available on a first come first serve basis. Five of the rooms have a beautiful lake view. Each room has two full beds, TV and Wifi. There is a large kitchen behind the large living room for the use of lodge guests. The rooms rent for $150 per night. Additional nights are available the week leading up to the race and possibly Sunday night after the race. Additional night must be reserved separately. Please contact Southeastern Trail Runs for Information. Here is a link to the Lodge on Cocktail Slough at Russell Lands website. This will be the location of the Friday afternoon pre-race meeting and dinner. There will also be limited space available for "indoor camping" in the meeting room downstairs. There will be a hefty cleanup fee so we have to charge $10 per person to camp.
The Lodge has spectacular views of Lake Martin and it's own private dock. Here is the description of the Lodge on the Russell Lands website:
"A breathtaking multipurpose venue with picturesque views of the blue waters of Lake Martin. The Lodge captures the essence of Lake Martin with wood beamed ceilings, ample covered patio offering panoramic views of the lake, a large, grassy yard, and oversized dock for boats and watercraft. It's also the perfect entertaining spot, with 24 large round tables, adjacent commercial kitchen, wet bar, and conference center. It also features 12 hotel-style double-occupancy guest rooms with full beds and private bathrooms."
Here is a link to the pictures I took of the Lodge at Cocktail Slough. There are also pictures of the Stables. The last images are of the Spring House Restaurant located about 300 yards up on the hill above the Stables. Lodge and Stables. In some of the pictures you will notice the point of land just to the right of the lodge is totally stripped of trees. One of the deadly tornadoes from April 27, 2011 crossed this point destroying everything in it's path and missing the lodge buy just a few yards.
If you are interested in reserving a room please contact me as soon as possible. These are the only rooms available within 10 miles of the race. There are homes available for short term rentals around lake. Most have one week minimum.
