About Traci Heineman

Our family is from the Birmingham area, and we have been vacationing at Lake Martin for 40 years, and 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 Eclectic

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. Old Harmony Branch Slough is the perfect mix of a big water view with quiet and calm water for skiing, floating, and cocktail cruising.

Overall property - well maintained, furnished nicely

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hill House on Lake Martin. Property is well maintained, furnishings & décor were extremely pleasant. Biggest surprise was that all of the beds had temperpedic mattresses on them! You don't see that in rental properties :)!! Slept like a baby :)

Daughter's Russell Crossroads wedding

  • 5 of 5

Hill House is just as it's described...spacious and relaxing! The house is super clean, well-equipped and soooo comfortable. The owners are easy to work with and respond readily if and when a problem or need arises. I was there two days in complete solitude (which wasn't a bad thing) because the dish remote control wasn't working. After consulting with Jay and dish tech support found I could operate the tv from the dish box. I did encounter several small live scorpions in the house but when Jay came to check on the remote control, he also sprayed around the exterior of the house and I didn't see any after that. :-) Although this house is off the beaten path, it is well worth the trip. I was so busy preparing for my daughter's wedding during the first part of my stay that I decided to extend my stay by two days so I could "recover" a bit at Hill House. Thank you for sharing your AUsome home.

Great House for a Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a cool house at the Lake. Two of us sisters traveled from Louisville, KY; the other three came from lower Alabama! We all fell in love with the setting, the cleanliness, and how eclectic the decorating was in Eclectic, AL. The kitchen is well equipped and just HUGE. The beds were SOOO comfy, and the sheets so soft. This time of the year the lake is way down, but we still sat down on the lake and drank lots of wine and laughed until our sides hurt. The only small issues were a low water pressure in the kitchen sink (no biggie); and we couldn't get the remote control to the DISH to work properly so we could watch the CUBS in the World Series. We had to control it from the box. Again, no biggie. Here are the restaurants we ate at and loved them: Cozumel Mexican in Eclectic - cheap Margueritas and great food; Niffers in Dadeville - fun atmosphere and good food; Lake Martin Pizza Co - GREAT pizza. RENT this house. What a fun weekend.

This was the perfect vacation !!! REST, RELAX & RETURN !!!! That is how I describe this wonderful week in Eclectic, Alabama. As families from South Carolina and Mississippi were able to meet in the middle and enjoy a wonderful week together. This home is well taken care of and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Kitchen is well stocked and has all the amenities you would need. SPOTLESS was the word to describe the entire place. Watching the fall leaves float down from the beautiful trees was so relaxing. Coffee on the deck was a must every morning. We hope to RETURN in the future for another week of REST and RELAXATION !!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely lake house with others. Such an enjoyable experience !!!!
