About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

At the end of a beautiful unpaved country road is where you’ll find Water’s Edge nestled on the banks of Lake Mitchell’s Walnut Creek. The property is located in central Alabama between Montgomery and Birmingham and only 6.5 miles off Interstate 65.

The home features a full eat-in kitchen, complete with cookware and utensils. A family area right off of the kitchen, 2 full baths, 5 bedrooms, laundry room, and 2 wrap-around decks.

The bedrooms’ include two with one queen-size bed each; two with one twin-size bed each; and one with a full-size bed. On the lower deck, you’ll find a table to share meals with family and friends and a small sitting area to anxiously await your freshly caught fish to fry. On the upper deck are rockers calling your name to just sit and relax as you enjoy watching the day break or come to an end.

Oh, and don't forget the boat! There’s a private dock, a public boat launch minutes away, and a marina just up the creek that provides fuel for both you and your boat.

About David Berdeaux

When we bought our lake house (gg’s Place) in 2006, we met our beloved neighbor Margaret Dodd. At first glance we saw a frail, stooped, 90 year old woman but we soon learned she was much more than that. At 90 years old and living on the lake, we never saw her without being dressed, full makeup, and heels! She would meet us on Friday afternoons with fresh baked cookies, strawberry pies, and other assorted goodies. We spent hours rocking on her porch and listening to tales of the old days on the lake when moonshiners would “run” their stills just up the creek, or a seaplane would land on the lake and bring friends to visit. She told stories of how she taught her grandsons to ski “right off of the beach” and how her late husband Garvin would go fishing early in the mornings and she had a full breakfast ready for him and the other fisherman that would “drop by.” She even had a story of how as an Eastern Star Matron she was once locked out on a balcony at the Governor’s Mansion and had to shimmy across a ledge in an evening gown to get to an open window and climb back into the mansion.

We never dreamed that one day we would have the privilege to own her home with its rich history. We purchased the home in the fall of 2016 and have been working and adding our touches to Water’s Edge ever since.

The left side of the road is very maneuverable and has been used many times by luxury and low ridding sports cars as well as trucks with boat trailers.

Cozy, beautifully-furnished Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

A Wonderful Lakehouse to spend time with your family. Right on the water with a private boat dock. We emensely enjoyed the convenience of walking out the back and right into our boat! There are nice fish to be caught; we enjoyed a big fish fry from our catches on Mitchell Lake. Upper and lower decks are a lovely place to enjoy the beauty of the lake and for our grandchildren to play.

There are so many little touches in the home to enjoy from unique books, lovely decor, games, info about the lake and surrounding area, and the home is furnished with every necessity you can think of.

Wal Mart is close, as is the Peach Park which had nice playgrounds that our grandchildren enjoyed a lot!

The owners could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I had to text a couple of times about little issues which they responded to in a very helpful and timely manner, and resolved the issue immediately. Thanks for a lovely time in your cozy Lakehouse!
