About the property

House With 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Bath, Sleeps 14. Flat Lot On Lake.

Lone Cypress Point is the ideal place to relax and have a family getaway at Lake Martin. Located in a quiet subdivision, a curved, sloping entrance drive takes you to a flat lot with beautiful landscaping and relaxing views of Lake Martin. The house is located in an unique neighborhood with understated beauty that offers miles of safe streets perfect for walking, jogging or biking. The property is near Kowaliga Marina, Kowaliga Restaurant, Russell Crossroads, Springhouse Restaurant, and Catherine's Market.

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.

About Streeter Wiatt

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.

Streeter Wiatt purchased this house in 2004

Why Streeter Wiatt chose Little Kowaliga

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.

Was scheduled for a Hilton Head family vacation the week Irma hit Florida. Looked for something in Alabama to avoid the storm and found Streeter's place on Lake Martin the day before we were scheduled to leave. He was very prompt and accommodating and checked on us several times during our stay. Everyone at the Lake was extremely nice. The kennel that kept our daughter's two dogs for a week would not let us pay for their stay and the upscale Spring Hill restaurant gave us our first round of drinks because we were running from the storm.

I had never heard of Lake Martin and am not much of a boater but found the lake absolutely gorgeous. The view from the house is just like in the pictures. If there are any trashy parts of the lake, we certainly could not find them. Even the Marinas were first class with boat showrooms that will knock your socks off.

We stopped by the stables in an area called The Ridge on a rain day hoping that our three year old grandson might see some horses. The lady attending the horses couldn't have been nicer and gave us our own 30 minute private tour.

Thanks you Streeter and our Alabama neighbors for turning a bad situation into a very enjoyable week.

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at the house; it was very roomy and clean. The lake was great and weather wonderful. The lawn and property was well-kept and really pretty. The owner was quick to answer any questions we had and was also very helpful. The one negative would be that most of us were not that comfortable on the beds' mattresses at night. We loved the entire stay besides that, though.

Owner's Response: We have had 35 reviews and many more tenants than that. You are the first tenant to say that about our beds. In fact our previous guests said that they slept great. Still, I am sorry that the beds were uncomfortable to you.

This house was great for our family reunion of 13 people. We had 8 adults and 5 children. The photos we were able to see online give a truly accurate picture inside and outside; the reason we chose this house. We were blessed with good weather, so most of the time we were outside - swimming, boating, reading, grilling, relaxing. All had a great time.

To be truly honest and fair summarizing our impression of the property, we do have to mention the septic system issues we experienced. Inside the house was not affected by the septic system, but outside was. One of our guest actually arrived a day early, only to find out he had to come back the next day. At that time, he noticed a sewerage smell but backed out of the drive to spend the night elsewhere. A couple of days later, as several of us were sitting on the patio and our grandson was riding his bike down the boat ramp, a stream of sewerage (only liquid) began running down the boat ramp, as well. The smell was awful. Our son, Tommy, texted Streeter immediately and asked him to send out a septic clean-out company and they arrived the very next morning and did their thing. All was well after that until the morning we were leaving, and my husband said the sewerage smell was outside again.

We have talked highly of our vacation on Lake Martin to friends (not mentioning the sewerage issues) and two have asked us for information about this house. If they become truly interested, we will have to tell them to be assured that there will be no septic system issues.

We have enjoyed doing business with Streeter Waite.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy for the honest review. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Upon receiving your call, I immediately called my septic man, and we met at the property and neither saw nor smelled any evidence of a field line leak. Still, I had him pump out the septic tank. I find out several days later, when the situation reoccurred, that the excessive rain had cause the field line field to be flooded and overflow. Then the rain had washed everything away, including the smell. We made repairs to the field lines, but again, the excessive amount of rain water was not allowing the ground to perk properly. (This is where the waste water perks or seeps into the ground). I have made further repairs, but I am proceeding with installing a new septic field. This should take care of any further problems.
