Enjoy lakefront vacationing in this charming lake cottage in the Sandy Creek area 35 minutes from Auburn. A few steps across the flat yard and you’re in the water or on the dock. Enjoy 100 feet of waterfront, a floating wet slip for your boat and a covered dock with cushioned chairs. Take in the big water view while swimming without boat traffic thanks to a tiny island keeping most boat traffic away. Woods on both sides of the property make it feel like you have your own piece of paradise! Best of all with its southern exposure you'll get plenty of sun.
The huge lake style screened porch with wet bar screams vacation! Enjoy your large patio area with lounge chairs for sunning and a separate grilling patio. Watch the birds and chipmunks eat the bird seed and when you’re done for the day you can use your private outdoor shower and then fire up the gas grill.
With the house only 20 feet from the water the covered dock is like an extension of the house and yard. The huge screened in porch guarantees a party even if the weather turns. There is ample outside area for gathering and visiting.
The cottage has an open floor concept with shared gas fireplace in living area and master bedroom. The master's French doors provide a lake front view and open to the patio. You also have an updated walk in shower. After a great week you can use the laundry room to get organized before heading back home.
If you're not in the cooking mood there are several great restaurants within 10 minutes of your perfect vacation spot. Everything from fried cheese balls and fish to great southern cooking!
Great for families, fishing and hunting excursions or a peaceful retreat. High speed internet access and cable TV. Flat screen TV's are great for watching your favorite sports and movies.
Auburn is 35 minutes while Dadeville is seven minutes and Alexander City 23 minutes. There is plenty of parking right at the backdoor of the cottage so moving in and out is a breeze.
Main parking is 35' wide x 43' long with another ~100 feet of driveway out to the road.
SWIMMING and FISHING:
Great swimming and fishing right off of our great covered dock and our floating dock. The water is roughly four feet deep directly off of the sea wall and roughly 10 feet deep off the end of the docks.
NOTE: Alabama Power drops Lake Martin's water level from full pool starting in October and begins increasing the water level in late February to mid-March. The change is seven to 10 feet so the water will be out past the dock during most of this time frame. Lake Martin is at full pool roughly from mid-March through early October. When the water is down seven feet puts the water just past the end of our dock. You can still walk out to the island to fish and watch the ducks and boats form the dock or house.
