Perfect for Auburn Football!!!

  • 5 of 5

I feel so fortunate to have found this little slice of heaven. This is exactly what you are looking for..friendly and easy to work with owners, immaculate property inside and out, peace and quiet and a very easy 30 minute drive into Auburn. You're close enough to enjoy all the crazy football fun and then come home to a beautiful view and the sounds of nature. Bill and Marie are the perfect hosts and have thought of everything...including leaving some yummy oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies for us to enjoy. We've rented through VRBO many times and have stayed in some good rentals, but this place is the bomb! I'm a little hesitant to even write this review, because I want this piece of paradise to always be available when I want it! However, this is a special place with special owners who have given you the opportunity to experience their cozy corner of the lake. Now quit looking for a better place and pack your bags. And War Eagle!!!

Such a Delight

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three days at "The Greenhouse" visiting with our family who planned to stay for the week. We have stayed at many vacation rental homes and found this one to be as near to the top of our list as you can get. From the key lime pie waiting in the fridge to the fresh flowers on the table and a charming house with everything you could imagine for lake fun prepared for our pleasure, we were amazed. Bill and Marie certainly outdo others with their attention to detail, water toys (canoe, kayaks, floats), a ping pong table, TVS in living area as well as bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and that wonderful full length front porch with cozy comfortable chairs as well as a swing. Linens and toiletries were first class. I think the best thing is the location at the end of an inlet that feeds out into the lake. The children could swim at the pier, and we didn't have to worry about the lake traffic. Our skiers were able to ski out of the cove in protected waters before getting to the main lake - a plus especially for beginners. I mustn't fail to mention the covered boat dock or the large hammock hanging in the trees. The setting is perfect; the house is one of the most charming we've ever used, and we were made to feel so welcomed. We were so sorry that we could not stay for the entire week and definitely plan to come back. Thank you, Bill and Marie, for sharing your lake house and making our family time so special.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the Tidwell's for a amazing summer vacation. We arrived to a spotless fully furnished place. The view from the back porch as well as the master bedroom is breath taking. This experience was definitely some of the best hospitality you could get. Along with our top of the line house the local lakeside marina has boats and jet ski rentals that make for a exciting day on the water. I've been to many places in state and out and to date the greenhouse lake martin vacation is number 1! Enough said!!!!!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the "Greenhouse". Make your reservations and see for yourself. It is totally awesome. The "Greenhouse was immaculate and the view from the back porch was breath taking. Not to mention the beautiful live flower arrangement on the dining table and the delicious key lime pie waiting for you in the fridge. We were actually home away from home. We did a little fishing off of the dock and swam in the water. I was so impressed that there were Bibles that you could read and enjoy while there. We are thankful for people like the Tidwell's that will open their home and allow other's to experience such a wonderful vacation. You will not be disappointed. We will surely go back.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent four wonderful relaxing days at the "Greenhouse". The photos do not do this place justice. The views of the lake are fantastic. We spent most of our time on the dock, fishing and swimming. The canoe and kayaks were a plus since we did not bring a boat with us. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable. You can tell the owners take pride in their home and it shows. The owners even left us a great pie in the fridge, and fresh flowers on the table. It is isolated enough where you are not on top of your neighbors, but close enough to local restaurants and grocery stores if you need something. Overall it was a great experience and we hope to return in the future. Thanks for everything Bill and Marie!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I joined our best friends and their son at "Greenhouse" for spring break. The kids are both young, so vacations are always a little stressful for us parents. The house was perfect! It was the most equipped house we have ever stayed at, and we have been renting from vrbo for years!!!! From linens and soap and a pack-and-play, to water toys for the lake, the Greenhouse has it all!! We loved the towel animals on the beds, the sweet card the owners left for us, and the kids (and parents) loved the brownies they left for us as well! This was one of the quietest, most relaxing vacations ANY of us has ever had. This house was huge, beautiful, and best of all, comfortable for all. We are already discussing our next trip!
