This 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath house is located on beautiful Lake Martin in Eclectic, Alabama.

The house is located in a quiet cottage community with a community pool and boat dock. A level, sodded lot leads you to the large pool and boat dock. The large yard area is perfect for kids to run around in while adults watch from the convenience of the home's back patio or screened in porch. The community pool is spacious and includes a wadding pool. The large pool deck is equipped with lounge chairs. This home is very well appointed. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Bar stools for 4, as well as a table for 6, with an additional table for 2, are perfect for a nice family meal. The cozy den includes two full size couches and a leather recliner with a 47 inch TV with Directv and 1/2 bath off to the side. The master bedroom has a king bed with a 40 inch TV with Directv. The master bathroom includes a double vanity, tub/shower combo, and toilet area. The downstairs has three additional bedrooms. Two rooms with queen beds and 32 inch TV's with Directv. The third room is a double bunk room that sleeps 4 and is the perfect kids' room. The bunk room and one queen bedroom share a spacious jack and jill bath, while the second queen bedroom has its own private bathroom. In addition to the upstairs living space, is a downstairs kids retreat that includes a seating area with a futon couch and bean bag chairs, a 48 inch TV with Directv, and blueray DVD. Outside, the lower patio includes a charcoal grill, adirondack chairs, and two fans to cool you while you watch the kids run around or swim in the pool or simply gaze at the lake. Upstairs is a relaxing screened in porch with a gas grill. All are great spaces to enjoy the outdoors while also relaxing.

We had such a great time at this house on Lake Martin. The homeowners did such a great job of decorating and setting up things ahead of our visit. Every room had a TV which was nice for our group. The community pool was a huge hit with our kids and the doc was great. Easy to get in and out of and right around the corner from lots of restaurants. We will definitely come back.
