About the property

Because the automation wouldn't let me put this in, I want to be sure that people know that this house has 1 1/2 baths inside + a very private outdoor shower in the shade. This vintage cottage has been updated with new paint, fixtures, beds, bedding, lovely screeened in porch with 180 degree view of the water, outside deck, boat slip, swimming dock, boat launch less than 1 mile down the road, play golf at Lake Winds Golf Course within 5 miles, close to Wind Creek State Park, Chimney Rock, The Ridge, rent a boat at River North Marina, beautiful sunsets, fun-filled days with water activities and lots of room for playing on land as well as parking space. The best view on the lake - water everywhere!!!! Lot is flat with easy access to house and water. Enjoy grilling out and relaxing -- beautiful open waters, fishing, boating, swimming, skiing, wakeboarding - fun family place. Short 30 minute drive to Auburn for football games one way; Spring House Restaurant, Catherine's Market, and Kowaliga the other way. Or just stay where you are and enjoy the sunset, watch the game on TV, grill out some steaks/fish/chicken and relax in the beautiful waters of Lake Martin. Invite some friends and let them book 2 doors down at VRBO listing #752945.

Been married for 37 years!! 3 beautiful children and 3 wonderful in-laws that have given us 5 grandchildren located across the country. So, we do a lot of traveling to see them.

the best vacation experience ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our large group of friends. With 11 separate beds it accommodated us well. We all loved the OUTDOOR SHOWER!!! It was used more than the indoor shower. We will definitely use this home again for our next visit to lake martin.

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what we were looking for. The open water views are amazing and the screened in back porch allows you to enjoy the lake from sun-up to sun-down without being attacked by bugs!! The home had ample beds for sleeping and there are plenty of chairs outside to accommodate everyone. Great home and the owner was very easy to work with. I would go back without hesitation to this home.
