Port Martin

Nestled along the shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees, Port Martin offers nightly lodging, boat slips and a private boat ramp.

It’s people like this that put the “neighbor” in neighborhood. We can’t thank our community enough for taking time out of their day to clean up the shoreline at Port Martin.

Can't say enough good about this place. Was there for a tournament and had 9 guys in the house. There was plenty of room for everyone and we never felt cramped. Owner was extremely accommodating and truly cared about making sure our stay was great. House was very clean, and had everything we needed and then some. If we have a tournament on grand lake again we will be staying there!

Port Martin has had a cancellation and Memorial Day Weekend is now OPEN! Book now for your family fun!

Port Martin at Grand Lake O' The Cherokees - OUTSTANDING! EXCELLENT! INCREDIBLE
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Port Martin on Grand Lake is the best value on the lake for large group rentals! I have been going to and renting in the Grand Lake area for decades and have never had a better experience with a large group rental. The location is perfectly situated between Shang-ri-la and the dam! 20 minutes from everything! The house is impeccably maintained and Craig, the owner, is unbelievably accommodating and helpful. 25 yards from fantastic Mexican food and patio bar! Myself and the other 14 people on our 4th of July trip would highly recommend Port Martin!

Yet another satisfied customer!

Try our standup paddle boards and kayaks!

[06/09/16]   Another great review!

Review #14837184 “Port Martin On The Shore Of Grand Lake O' The Cherokees”

Fantastic location with everything you need
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our stay at Port Martin couldn't have been better, had everything we needed, exactly as described, and it was a very comfortable home. We were able to load our boat just 50-75 feet from the front door and park the trailer in the driveway. It's a convenient location with a restaurant next door and friendly neighbors all around. The lake view from the front porch or the bay window in the living room is beautiful. The large front porch is very relaxing with a cool breeze coming up from the water. Being able to dock our boat so close made it easy to load up and cruise the lake. We're planning another trip back next year! Thanks Craig.

[05/19/16]   Hooray for happy guests!! Our first real VRBO review:

Port Martin - Historic Home
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our experience at Port Martin will be one that is remembered fondly for a lifetime. The home has a lot of history, the location next to the boat ramp to launch our boat was a plus. The managers were awesome at responding quickly to our inquiries and questions before and after we arrived. In addition, they were very positive in regard to service animal policies, even though at the last few days before departure it was determined the service animal would not be traveling with us this time.

For individuals with disabilities the first floor has a bedroom with bath that does not require taking stairs to another floor. The bath has a step in shower that is a plus for individuals with mobility issues. This year we decided to go to Port Martin instead of Branson and we do not regret making this choice. There were four adults and two children in our group.

The house had plenty of room as we are all accustomed to living in large properties. There was a mesh bag full of outside toys (Frisbees, balls, etc) that we enjoyed using during our stay. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of plates, cups, glasses, silverware, and cookware. We made a trip of about 13 miles to Vinita to the Walmart store for groceries and discovered a very good Route 66 restaurant while we were in Vinita.

The view from the living room across the lake was so relaxing and peaceful. Having the use of a washer and dryer was a plus. Upstairs there is a half bath for the three bedrooms to share and in addition to the full bath downstairs connected to the downstairs bedroom on the main floor also off the breakfast area there is another full bathroom that also includes a vanity and tub shower combo.

The property was very well stocked with supplies. Three generations of our family stayed at this property and everyone young and old enjoyed the time we spent at Port Martin. Our grandson and son-in-law both caught bass when they went out on our boat. Our granddaughter caught her first bass when she went out on our boat. This is a memory that she will always carry. We look forward to staying at this property again in the future when we are visiting Grand Lake for a relaxing time for relief of the stress of day to day life.

We made many memories at Port Martin. As a plus this property has a basement. Oklahoma has a history of tornados, we felt much more comfortable being in a house with a basement.

Where better to stay on your next weekend getaway or host your next family reunion than Grand Lake of the Cherokees.

Once finished, the house will comfortably sleep 12. Port Martin has its own private boat ramp and a dock for your boat or just for some fishing or swimming. With amazing views of the lake, Port Martin is situated near Cleora, Oklahoma and only a short drive from Tulsa or Joplin. Keep checking our site for additional details on rates and updates on our progress to get this beautiful home ready for your next vacation!
