About the Property
House With 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Bath, Sleeps 14. Flat Lot On Lake.
Our house features a swimming pool at lake side. There is a hammock on its own private pier on a side slough. An outside eating area with azaleas and dogwoods provides still another place to relax. Enjoy the second floor deck off the master bedroom or the covered patio.
There is a stationary pier with lawn chairs, a floating dock, and a seadoo dock. Our lake front provides a nice swimming area. Plenty of parking is available as well as a on-site boat ramp. The boat ramp is usable most years from March through November. Depending on the rainfall, the months that the on-site boat ramp can be used will vary. In any case, there is an excellent year-round boat ramp nearby. There is also a 9' high basketball goal at the paved parking area.
The property is a great all-season retreat. Fall and spring are beautiful on Lake Martin and the winter months offer a quiet beauty. The house is located on a large wooded lot with over 300 feet of shoreline and provides a gorgeous setting year round. Hiking, fishing, biking, horseback riding, golf, etc. are enjoyed year round. We have had good luck bottom fishing for catfish from the pier during the cooler months. The cooler months also allow you to enjoy the chiminea and the fireplaces. The game tables also tend to get more use from October - April as well.
The house is truly family friendly. The den is carpeted and has a TV, game table, jigsaw puzzle table, and a wood burning fireplace. A separate playroom has a TV, pool table, bar area, full bath, and loft. There is a spacious kitchen with granite countertops and an undercounter ice maker. The oven/range is electric and the microwave is also a convection oven. All of the major kitchen appliances were purchased when the kitchen was redone in 2005. A coffee maker, a blender, a toaster, pots, pans, and eating utensils are also provided. The dining table comfortably seats 8, but can seat up to 10 or 12.
The house has four bedrooms with 1 King (MBR) and 3 Queens. The Master Bedroom and Bedroom #2 are upstairs, both with private baths. The Master Bedroom has an attached study with a terrific view of the lake. There is also a private deck off the MBR. There are 2 bedrooms downstairs with a shared bath. The Playroom has a loft and full bath. The loft has single beds.
There are 7 head mounts of animals from South Africa mounted high on the walls. Six are in the playroom and one is in the den (which you don't notice unless you look up).
3 TVs, DVD library, games, jigsaw puzzles, books.
Washer and Dryer
Charcoal grill, gas grill, and smoker available.

- Property is well suited for the 60+ age group as well as for children. Truly family friendly. Lake Martin offers a number of activities unique to the area. You can take a scenic drive, visit and climb a restored fire tower, visit the dam, go antiquing, hike a lake side trail, jump off chimney rock, take a guided fishing tour (the stripe bass are big!) and more. Or you can be perfectly content just 'being' at the lake. There is a variety of good eating, from a burger at Our Town gas station to BBQ to the Cellar at Springhouse Restaurant. ...moreless

Lake Martin is one of the prettiest lakes in the country and has over 700 miles of shoreline. It doesn't hurt to take a map or a GPS with you if you go exploring.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I grew up in Montgomery, AL, enjoying nearby Lake Martin. After moving around the country doing large construction projects, I moved back to Montgomery in 1987. I bought my first property on the Lake in 1993. My wife had always loved the lake and our kids quickly fell in love with it as well. I have bought and sold a number of properties on Lake Martin, either renovating a house/cabin or building a new home.
Why the Owner Chose Little Kowaliga (Eclectic, AL, USA):
I bought this property to flip, but after using it for just a short while, we knew we couldn't part with it. We love the house, the location on the lake, the view, the slough, the subdivision, and all the amenities. Eclectic is close to Montgomery, Birmingham, and I-85.
