Lake Martin water levels are controlled by a hydroelectric dam. Water is lowered by 7 feet in the winter. This lowering begins on 10/15 at about 2 feet per month. The water starts to rise on Feb. 20 and is back up to full pool by May 1.

BLUE CREEK BRIDGE - IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT the majority OF THE BOATS ON LAKE MARTIN CAN NAVIGATE UNDER THE BLUE CREEK BRIDGE ON HIGHWAY 49. You are advised that navigation of your boat under this bridge is contingent upon the water level at certain times of the year. NOTE: A boat with a tower that will not collapse will NOT be able to go under this bridge; however, the lake on the low side of the bridge (approximately 600 acres) is very calm, peaceful, and a great place to water ski, knee board, ride jet skis, and ride pull behind tubes. Our guests enjoy kayaking (we furnish two (2) free of charge) on this part of the lake, main body is too busy and rough.

The "Greenhouse" is located on the banks of Lake Martin in Tallapoosa County, AL. November, 2015, The Washington Post ranked Tallapoosa County the "prettiest" county in all the land of Alabama.

This upscale vacation rental is 22 miles from Auburn University, 1 1/2 miles from Stillwaters Golf course, and 2 miles from five (5) of the most popular restaurants on the lake. Lakeside Marina just 1 mile,and across the cove from our home, offers pontoon boat and jet ski rentals.

Also, we have a shallow swimming area, 2 - 4 feet deep, for your young ones to swim.

Great place for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The "Green House" is a great place for a relaxing time on the lake. The house is situated in a quiet and very private slough. No worries about a lot of boat traffic.... great for swimming off of the dock. Everything we needed was provided at the cabin... innertube and kayaks for fun on the water, fire pit for making smores at night, a nice charcoal grill, and pingpong & board games for passing the time when its raining. You will not be disappointed with this lake property.

Great Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The Greenhouse was a great location to celebrate our mom's 78th birthday. Marie and Bill were wonderful to work with from the initial booking until checkout. They added a really nice touch putting up a happy birthday banner prior to arrival. The house is open, comfortable and private with good lake views and dock/swimming area. We spent most of our time on the dock, in the water/in the kayaks or on the porch due to the nice views and area. We'll be back!

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Greenhouse over Labor Day Weekend 2018. It was my first time to stay on Lake Martin (I had no idea what to expect). We all had such a WONDERFUL time. I would absolutely come back to Lake Martin and stay at this property again. The home was so comfortable and very classy. The view of the lake was great and yet also somewhat private - the best of both worlds. The boathouse and dock were in wonderful condition. We rented a pontoon and had a BLAST! It was so easy to launch from the dock. We also swam right off the dock and it was so convenient. The home is also close to some nice restaurants. The cabin is roomy, clean, solidly built, and inviting. I was truly able to relax in it. We also ventured all over the lake on the pontoon and it was such fun. It was so awesome to be able to venture out and come back to this homey cabin. Everything you need is supplied... plus more. I had not played ping pong in years and we had a great little tournament! Five stars all the way... And no complaints.

The green house is fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Green House. The house and property were clean and well organized. Launching the boat and jet ski was a easy at Lake Side Marine. You could tell by the looks of the property the owners are great people and take pride in the property. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation on Lake.

Be sure to eat at Niffers the Fire Truck Burger is great.

Great time with family in the perfect location. Only one little thing that could have been better was that the box spring on our bed creaked too much! Every time that we moved even to get up or sit down it made a loud noise. Otherwise, no problems!!

Beautiful home in a secluded cove -- Perfect for our family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "The Greenhouse." The home is impeccably kept, nice floor plan with oversized bedrooms and bathrooms, furnished very nicely, and a fantastic back porch the entire length of the home. There was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The hosts even put out fresh flowers and 4th of July décor for our stay! It's situated at the very end of a quiet, nice cove with little to no boat traffic, very private. The dock is well built and we enjoyed swimming right there -- easy in and out. We enjoyed the kayaks too - smooth water, great for beginners. We also enjoyed the firepit -- perfect for s'mores! Convenient to marinas, restaurants, convenience store and an easy drive to and from Auburn! You will love staying at "The Greenhouse!" Thanks for helping us make fun family memories, Bill and Marie!
