This house is on the Bike Trail that runs around Auburn. We are only 4 miles from the AU campus but you feel like you are out in the country for leisure activities.

We are 30 minutes from Lake Martin where you can participate in water sports.

Chewalca State Park affords lots of fun hours of hiking, paddle boats, fishing, etc.
