Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Our condo is located in StillWaters, just 30 miles from the Auburn campus, and is part of the finest and newest complex to be built in Dadeville's premier gated, lake, golf and tennis community. Although this is our personal unit, we are willing to share it from time to time with others who want the best, and who'll appreciate the subtle [wink] affiliation with our favorite Tigers.
If golf is your thing, you'll be delighted with the StillWaters course, which offers great rates for a challenging outing. And with Robert Trent Jones' Grand National less than 30 miles away in Opelika, you could easily fill up a week playing several different courses from this home base.
The condo is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath Penthouse unit that we consider to be the best at Stoneview Summit, due to its spaciousness and incomparable lake views. The 2000 sq feet of living area are more than amply furnished to make you feel pampered. We offer WiFi and unlimited long distance, as well as internet-ready TVs, Roku, and BluRay players. Ceiling heights are 12 to 15 ft throughout; and the floors are real hardwood, with ceramic tile bathrooms and carpeted bedrooms. The kitchen is quite spacious, with granite counter tops; and it includes all of the appliances (stainless) and accessories that a cook could want for a week or weekend getaway. The three bedrooms each have a flatscreen TV, and two have internet-ready BluRay players. If you enjoy Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc., then you can watch movies or listen to music in the privacy of your own bedroom or on the 55 inch internet ready high definition TV in the living area. There is also a 5-disk CD player and an iPod/iPhone docking station for those who love their own style of music. If you MUST bring your work with you, there's a color printer/scanner on a dedicated desk away from the noise.
For those cool evenings, there are two gas fireplaces, one in the living area and the other on the spacious balcony that overlooks Lake Martin with a western view for enjoying spectacular sunsets. The balcony also has an eating table and chairs, a chaise lounge, swivel rockers, and an infrared grill with a separate burner and all the necessary accessories to make your grilling experience enjoyable.
Each bathroom has a standard tub/shower combo, with the exception of the master bath that has an oversized tub and a shower big enough for two. All of the bath counter tops are granite. The bedroom closets are spacious, including a huge walk-in located in the master suite. The front bedrooms have curtains as well as blinds for added room-darkening.
Following Auburn’s National Championship Victory, we created the “Eagles' Nest” as our getaway place, and for fans and outdoor enthusiasts who want the best in rental accommodations, as well as the peace and quiet that Lake Martin can bring.
For some, the “Plains” are great on game day, but just too hectic afterward. We have so much more to offer than the area hotels that jack up their prices during football season. With us, you can spread out and enjoy each other's company in a home setting. You won't have to crowd around a tiny TV to watch the other games, nor wait in line at just another restaurant.
On site there is a great wading pool with an unusual rock slide and several waterfalls that lend uniqueness to the sun-bathing and swimming experience. There are covered areas for relaxing while the kids frolic.
From Memorial Day through Labor Day, head on over to the interdenominational Church of the Living Waters, which features outdoor Sunday inspiration that's within easy walking distance or that can be reached by boat.
Speaking of boats, our condo comes with its own boat slip that can accommodate up to a 24 foot boat. If you don't want to bring your own vessel, ask us about pontoon rental; or check out the local marinas for jet skis or ski boats.
For those who like to fish, there are three fishing ponds on the StillWaters property that are stocked nicely with crappie, brim and large mouthed bass. Yes, you can catch an 8-pounder from the pond! Otherwise, if you want 400,000 acres of water, there is always Lake Martin, considered to be one of the cleanest lakes in America. That is where we enjoy swimming, as the water is deep immediately off shore, and the boat traffic is minimal.
There are grocery and convenience stores nearby, several excellent restaurants accessible either by car or by boat, and marinas that provide fuel for your own craft as needed. Check out our map to familiarize yourself with all the area has to offer.
Weeks and weekends are limited in this unit as we love to use it ourselves; but let us know your needs (as far ahead as possible) and we will do our best to accommodate them. We are looking for select non-smoker families to share our lovely condo, and would be happy to share additional photos upon request.

About Chris Benoit
My husband and I have been in real estate for over 30 years, primarily during our careers with Michelin in Dothan and Bridgestone in Tennessee. We purchased this condo inspired by our love for Auburn University and the fact that our daughter and her family live in nearby Atlanta. We have been traveling both within and outside the US for the past several years and enjoy Europe especially. Our picture in this listing was taken at the Grand Canyon following Auburn's awesome victory over the Oregon Ducks in Phoenix. War Eagle!
Chris Benoit purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Chris Benoit chose Dadeville
We purchased the condo to be closer to the grandchildren in Atlanta and to Auburn University. In the 6 years we've owned the condo, we've grown so fond of Stoneview Summit that we purchased a second unit there.
What makes this Condo unique
We love to swim, boat, and fish. We're very proud of the well-conceived and ample furnishings we've brought into this particular unit. It's a very non-typical rental unit. Our guests always say it's even better than the description. Four of the families who previously rented from us actually purchased units in our complex after staying in our unit. That's quite a unique endorsement, and we're now delighted to have them as neighbors!

The condo was perfect for a "hurrication"! Well kept and large enough to accommodate 4 very comfortably. Beautiful views, quiet community (not a big weekend) and easy Lake access. We enjoyed morning runs throughout and will have to come back for more sunshine! Ron & Christy were gracious to accept us late notice and kind enough to check in, though there was nothing else we could of asked for. Thanks you two!
We were happy to host your multi-generational family as you sought shelter from the hurricane. We heard that you rescued our neighbor's dog- can't ask for more than that from our guests! Come back any time!
Beautiful lake condo
This spacious Lake Martin condo was the perfect weekend getaway. It is beautifully decorated and has a fully stocked kitchen with many extras. The lake view from the balcony is so peaceful - a perfect way to begin and end our days. The owners are very kind and easy to work with. We will definitely go back!
Eagle's Nest for Relaxation
Despite the numbers of neighbors, the boats docked down below, and the highly desirable location, this condo offers peace and quiet for the group seeking to get away for a while. The hosts have equipped it with everything you need to feel at home and enjoy your visit.
Incredible! Beautiful! Amazing!
The owners were so helpful and always available if we had questions. We thoroughly enjoyed having the boat which allowed the kids to tube and hit the hot spots - Chimney Rock and Goat Island - as well as fish. The condo itself was gorgeous and had everything we could need. We loved being on the top floor and enjoyed the beautiful views of the lake including the sunset. The condo was spacious and well appointed, and while we spent most of our time on the lake, it was so nice to come back to a place that felt like home. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
What a joy it was to host your family for post-July 4th fun at Lake Martin! You picked a perfect time, as the big crowds were gone, allowing y'all to take the boat out and not have tons of traffic. We hope you put our new tube to good use with your precious children. We so appreciated the photo you sent while y'all were out at Chuck's, our favorite "boatable" restaurant!
It was nice to get updates during your visit. It helps to know that the extras we provide are useful and appreciated. Let us know what we can add to our "staples."
We look forward to hearing when you'll be planning a return trip; and with the fact that you never even got to visit our awesome pool in your 5 days, we sure hope you'll allot a whole week for that next visit!! Be sure to look at the fact that we charge 6 nights' rent for 7!!
Luxury on Lake Martin!
This condo exceeded our expectations in all categories. This upper floor unit had high ceilings throughout, and all rooms were larger than a typical condo, apartment or house. The combination of hardwood floors and quality furnishings made for a luxurious living experience during our 5-day stay. The kitchen was equipped with everything imaginable; there was no shortage of options for cooking or mixing drinks - it was all there and more. The condo is situated on a very quiet cove where I observed a "no-wake" practice by all passing boats and PWCs. I had my boat in the owner's slip, in direct view from the large balcony, and there were virtually no waves during our stay. The view from the balcony afforded incredible sunset experiences, and the size of the balcony was well-suited for a large group. We thoroughly enjoyed this unit and our interactions with the owners. We will definitely return for future visits!
Choosing the "right" guest for the busy 4th of July weekend is always a challenge, because of the number of families and boats in the water here for the busiest holiday of the year. We could not have been happier that we selected your family; and we hope you'll make Eagles' Nest your Lake Martin home!
Your comment upon getting settled in, that Stephanie loved it so much she wanted to know if we were ready to sell made my heart swell. We are indeed proud that 5 of our previous guests have bought units here as a result of the great time they had while in our condo. We feel blessed to be here~
This property is well maintained. It is very clean. It steps from the lake with excellent views.
My family and I greatly enjoyed our time at this property. This is the second time we have stayed here. We hope to keep coming back.
Scott, we were so delighted to have you & your family for a return visit- particularly since we were out of the country during your stay! It's reassuring that you know what to expect, and vice versa. You're like family to us- come back whenever you'd like!!
Stoneview Summit is the newest condo complex within the prestigious, gated StillWaters development on the Auburn end of Lake Martin. When you're not out on the Lake, our neighborhood boasts 3 fishing ponds, lighted tennis courts, a challenging golf course, a community playground with facilities, and plenty of walking trails.
