About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Lake Martin, Neros Point

The house was designed to give a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding woods. The lot is very wooded and private–you can not see the neighbors houses in the summer.

A large great room- extends from the kitchen on one end to a fireplace on the other end-approximately 20 x 38 feet . The open floor plan is the perfect place for family gatherings. The ceiling is a 24 foot vaulted stained wood with beams that expand the width of the house. The “A” frame of the wall facing the lake has windows to the ceiling so you can see the trees and sky while sliding glass doors across the front provide a wonderful view of the lake.

There are three bedrooms that includes a master bedroom and bath, and two bedrooms that share a bath. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the middle bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds. All of the beds have a memory foam topper for added comfort.

There is also a loft (29' x 14') with a ping pong table as well as a TV viewing area. Cable is provided along with wireless internet. There is a queen size sleeper sofa and a queen size aero bed is available for extra sleeping space. The laundry room, with washer and dryer, is also located in the loft. A large deck expands the front of the house and smaller covered decks are on both sides of the house. The kitchen is fully equipped and linens are provided..

At the end of the pier, one side is deep for mooring the boats while the other side is shallow for young children to swim and play. A floating dock allows for easy acctess to water craft. At full pool, 3-4 boats and or jet ski are easily docked.

The location is an easy drive to military bases in Montgomery, Auburn for football games, or Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Pratville. (app 35-40 miles for each location). In addition, it is an easy drive or boat ride to Catherine's Market, Springhouse Restaurant, as well as many other local restaurants. Concerts and Fourth of July firworks and also with in boating or driving distance.

Looking for long term renters or willing to rent short time.

About Rebecca

Our family and friends have enjoyed the beauty of Lake Martin for many years. We have always had dogs and they,too, love the lake. Since the children are grown and have moved away we decided for the first time to share our home.

Rebecca purchased this house in 1995

Why Rebecca chose Little Kowaliga

We purchased this vacation home because after traveling to the lake with friends, we were captivated by the beauty of the area. The lake was close to our home in Montgomery; the setting is rural; but an easy drive to Birmingham, Alexander City, Auburn and even Atlanta. The lake is large and pristine and while it has grown in popularity over the years; however, it is not overcrowded. There are plenty of good restaurants within 5 to 10 minutes; and you do not have to deal with the over crowded roads of the beach.

What makes this house unique

The location of the home makes you feel secluded as the house is surrounded on three sides by woods while the front faces the lake. Yet, there are many attractions and restaurants nearby-either by land or water. A unique area, The Crossroads, boasts a fabulous grocery,Catherine's Market, with a fresh meat department as well as unique grocery items and deli. In addition, an equestrian center with horses available for rent is also located there. For those who are interested in fine dining Springhouse Restaurant is fabulous. Boats are also available for rental at a nearby marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at your place! Everyone loved the lake house and enjoyed the lake. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was so comfortable and relaxing. Loved the openness and the view!!! Also appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and plenty of linens and towels. We would love to stay there again some day!

My family and I stayed there for a week, as a mini vacation, leading up to my wife's and I wedding day. The house was clean, fully stocked kitchen (minus food of course), great appliances, plenty of parking for being tucked in the woods. The back porch and deck was all fantastic. All my nieces and all my family had a blast swimming off the dock. The water was wonderful. The house water access is tucked away very quiet slew. We enjoyed every minute of it. No need to go out to eat when you have all you need to cook there. The gas grill outside worked great. I did bring my own charcoal grill though; only used it once. I would definitely recommend this place to any one with probably no more than 3 adult couples; the amount of kids with them don't matter since they can sleep wherever. There were plenty of extra air mattresses and sheets upstairs. We brought our own because we didn't know they were there. Plenty of towels available but still bring a few of your own. Be ready to do laundry if you have a crowd. Good washer and dryer upstairs. EXCELLENT PLACE & GREAT MEMORIES!

Perfect family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this home and we found it to be everything we were looking for. We rented it for the entire Thanksgiving week and were joined by our grown children for some relaxation and stress-relief. The home is very comfortable and the space is laid out well. It was cold enough for a fire in the fireplace the first night and the owner had plenty of firewood we could use.. We used the gas grill a couple of times and the propane tank seemed full. The beds were quite comfortable and all of the rooms were sparkling clean. We cooked in for all of our meals with the exception of a carry-out lunch from Catherine's Market one day, and the kitchen had plenty of workspace, cabinet and pantry space. I did a full Thanksgiving feast and the double ovens were a wonderful help. Although chilly outside, it was sunny and we did alot of hiking and walking with our dogs. The dogs also enjoyed swimming in the lake, just not the freezing hose down they got afterwards! We particularly liked the large deck and the Adirondack chairs with such a great view of the lake. The only thing that we could have used was a TV downstairs. This wouldn't have even been an issue during warmer months with boating and skiing activities available, but we spent a good bit of time up in the loft watching football games. it is a nice TV spot up there but a little crowded when we were all gathered around watching the Iron Bowl. All in all, we had a wonderful family vacation. The owner was great and easy to contact. She kept in touch by email, text and phone and her instructions were simple to follow. I would recommend this home to anyone and expect that we might be renting it again ourselves.

Nice lake house!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house to stay near our daughters' wedding at the Springhouse. It is a very nice house, with a beautiful lake view, and surrounded by lots of nice deck area to be outside on. Inside, the house had plenty of room for the 8 folks we slept there. It is nicely decorated, with a well apportioned kitchen area and cozy and comfortable beds in the bedrooms. It was clean and nicely maintained. We enjoyed our stay there!

Great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to escape for 5 days to the lake and found this house on VRBO. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and was very accommodating to us. The house was very comfortable, great views of the water, nice kitchen and den area, Lots of area to put your food items in pantry and cabinets, well stocked kitchen, bedrooms were big, beds were comfortable, everything was clean, deck was great and had nice Adirondack chairs on it, dock area was very nice - had shade in the late afternoon, very shallow water on left side of dock and deep water for the boat on the right, dock can accommodate 2 boats well, good to kayak from too, slough was quiet (when we were there), although houses not that far away by water, it is very private, good roads for walks from the house, not far from stores or boat launch, good cell service and WIFI, we even played ping pong too...........all around a great place to stay. We appreciated the owners allowing our dogs to come with us, they loved it too! The only thing that could have made our stay better was the grilling situation.......gas grill was out of gas and I was told ahead of time that it would be my responsibility to get the gas. We ended up buying a cheap charcoal grill because we prefer charcoal grilling anyway. If it had only had a really nice charcoal grill, it would have been great in every way! We loved the house, enjoyed our stay, and hope to return some day!! Thank you Becky for renting such a nice place on the lake for us non lake house owners to enjoy staying several days on the lake!!! We all had a nice relaxing time!!

Owner's Response: Penny, thank you so much for such a thoughtful review and for the conversations we have had regarding grilling at the lake house. I will definitely consider your recommendations. Grilling is such a part of the lake experience and we want it to be practical and safe for both the renters and for us.

Amazing trip...very relaxing with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided we would like to have a vacation that was relaxing instead of fighting crowds and being on a schedule- and we got it here! We got up and fished in the morning and rode wave runners to explore the lake during the day and then fished again at night. We also played board games after dark. We ate at home for almost every meal and only left the house (in a car) twice. We have two teen daughters (16 and 17 yrs old) and they loved our stay. Our family grew so much closer this week. The house was lovely, the view was beautiful and relaxing, and the lake was wonderful and fun to explore! We had such a great time that if we don't buy our own lake house, then we will definitely book another vacation at this one!
