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.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Hill House. It was very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. Beautiful view of the lake. We was able to keep our boat and kayaks at the pier. The Hill House is conveniently located to the public boat ramp and Kowaliga Marina. Hope to visit again soon.

This was for son's graduation from OTS, we had an amazing time the house opened completely to the deck and allowed for indoor and outdoor living space. Traci was awesome to work with. We are talking about having this as an annual getaway.

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.
