Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed a tons of lake rentals all over the country. This one is perfect for families, anglers, and just a get away. The master suit is great. The open living and kitchen area looks at the lake. All the beds are memory foam and very comfortable. Highly recommend this one!

Nicely organized and ready to go for a great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

I visited during the fall and found it very quiet and peaceful. The house is nicely and appropriately appointed. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and island areas work well to cook and serve ten or so people. It was a very nice stay, highly recommended.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The accommodations were great--and as advertised! Plenty of room for 5 elderly adults, inside and out. Easy to get down to the dock, and back up. Really comfortable beds. It was fantastic in the fall, and I'll bet even better in the summer. Isolated just enough to be as private as we wanted and with excellent restaurants within reasonable distances.

Lovely home on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to your home. This home is clean and well maintained. Master suite bed is comfortable. Nicely decorated. Pictures don't do this property justice. If you are looking for something grandiose, this is not it. If you are looking for something nice size and homey this is what you're looking for. We did find a can of orange pop in the freezer, glad we found it in time before it burst! Do bring toilet paper, paper towels. You will need it. There is a nice, large Dollar store close by that will have most anything you might need. Dining options are there but we found the food was mediocre at best. We rented a pontoon boat and had no trouble docking it at this property. We would stay here again, given the opportunity.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the home. I hope you come back for another stay. Most of the food on the lake is decent, but just pub style sandwiches, burgers, or fried. However, if you are looking for fine dining, I can recommend SpringHouse at Russell Crossroads. You can get there in ten minutes either by boat or by car. The food is fabulous and the menu changes daily. They also have a delicious Sunday brunch. Reservations are required and I recommend making them in advance of your stay. I have eaten there many times, and it's delicious every time. They also have a great wine selection and full bar. The dress is business casual or nicer. It's not really a place for kids unless doing Sunday brunch. Hope to see you back again soon!

About Traci Heineman

Our family is from the Birmingham area, and we have been vacationing at Lake Martin for 40 years. We also own a private lake home nearby. So many of our best family memories took place right here at Lake Martin.

Traci Heineman purchased this house in 2013

Why Traci Heineman chose Little Kowaliga

We love this part of the lake. It's a short boat ride to islands with sandy beaches, Kowaliga Marina and Restaurant, Catherine's Market and Spring House, The Landing, and other restaurants. Old Harmony Branch Slough is the perfect mix of a big water view with quiet and calm water for skiing, floating, and cocktail cruising.


Hill House is nestled under the trees overlooking peaceful Old Harmony Branch Slough, across from Trillium. It's a short boat ride to Kowaliga Marina and Restaurant, Catherine's Market, Spring House, The Ridge, the Cliffs and Goat Island. Multiple islands often have great beaches for swimming, and the Amphitheater offers summer concerts. By car, it's 40 minutes from Montgomery, 45 minutes from Auburn University, 1 1/2 hours from Birmingham and less than 3 hours from Atlanta.
