Overview

Lake Martin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Our condo is located in StillWaters, just 35 miles from the Auburn campus, and is part of the finest and newest complex to be built in Dadeville's premier gated, lake, golf and tennis community. Although this is our personal unit, we are willing to share it from time to time with others who want the best, and who'll appreciate the subtle [wink] affiliation with our favorite Tigers.

If golf is your thing, you'll be delighted with the StillWaters course, which offers great rates for a challenging outing. And with Robert Trent Jones' Grand National less than 30 miles away in Opelika, you could easily fill up a week playing several different courses from this home base.

The condo is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath Penthouse unit that we (and other owners) consider to be the best at Stoneview Summit, due to its spaciousness and incomparable lake views. The 2000 sq feet of living area are more than amply furnished to make you feel pampered. We offer WiFi and unlimited long distance, as well as internet-ready TVs, Roku, and BluRay players. Ceiling heights are 12 to 15 ft throughout; and the floors are real hardwood, with ceramic tile bathrooms and carpeted bedrooms. The kitchen is quite spacious, with granite counter tops, and it includes all of the appliances (stainless) and accessories that a cook could want for a week or weekend getaway. The three bedrooms each have a flatscreen TV, and two have internet-ready BluRay players. If you enjoy Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc., then you can watch movies or listen to music in the privacy of your own bedroom or on the 55 inch internet ready high definition TV in the living area. There is also a 5-disk CD player and 2 iPod/iPhone docking stations for those who love their own style of music. If you MUST bring your work with you, there's a color printer/scanner on a dedicated desk away from the noise.

For those cool evenings, there are two gas fireplaces, one in the living area and the other on the spacious balcony that overlooks Lake Martin and has a western view for enjoying spectacular sunsets. The balcony also has an eating table and chairs, a chaise lounge, swivel rockers, and an infrared grill with a separate burner and all the necessary accessories to make your grilling experience enjoyable.

Each bathroom has a standard tub/shower combo, with the exception of the master bath that has an oversized tub and a shower big enough for two. All of the bath counter tops are granite. The bedroom closets are spacious, including a huge walk-in located in the master suite. The front bedrooms have curtains as well as blinds for added room-darkening.

Following Auburn’s National Championship Victory, we created the “Eagles' Nest” as our getaway place, and for fans and outdoor enthusiasts who want the best in rental accommodations, as well as the peace and quiet that Lake Martin can bring.

For some, the “Plains” are great on game day, but just too hectic afterward. We have so much more to offer than the area hotels that jack up their prices during football season. With us, you can spread out and enjoy each other's company in a home setting. You won't have to crowd around a tiny TV to watch the other games, nor wait in line at just another restaurant.

On site there is a great wading pool with an unusual rock slide and several waterfalls that lend uniqueness to the sun-bathing and swimming experience. There are covered areas for relaxing while the kids frolic.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, head on over to the interdenominational Church of the Living Waters, which features outdoor Sunday inspiration that's within easy walking distance or that can be reached by boat.

Speaking of boats, our condo comes with its own boat slip that can accommodate up to a 30 foot boat. If you don't want to bring your own vessel, ask us about pontoon rental; or check out the local marinas for jet skis or ski boats.

For those who like to fish, there are three fishing ponds on the StillWaters property that are stocked nicely with crappie, brim and large mouthed bass. Yes, you can catch an 8-pounder from the pond! Otherwise, if you want 400,000 acres of water, there is always Lake Martin, considered to be one of the cleanest lakes in America. That is where we enjoy swimming, as the water is deep immediately off shore, and the boat traffic is minimal.

There are grocery and convenience stores nearby, several excellent restaurants accessible either by car or by boat, and marinas that provide fuel for your own craft as needed. Check out our map to familiarize yourself with all the area has to offer.

Weeks and weekends are limited in this unit as we love to use it ourselves; but let us know your needs (as far ahead as possible) and we will do our best to accommodate them. We are looking for select non-smoker families to share our lovely condo, and would be happy to share additional photos upon request.

About Chris Benoit

My husband and I have been in real estate for nearly 25 years, primarily during our careers with Michelin in Dothan and Bridgestone in Tennessee. Our rental properties now are on the Gulf Coast near our home in Fairhope, with the exception of this condo which we purchased inspired by our love for Auburn University and the fact that our daughter and her family live in nearby Atlanta.

We have been traveling both within and outside the US for the past several years and enjoy Europe especially.

Our picture in this listing was taken at the Grand Canyon following Auburn's awesome victory over the Ducks in Phoenix. War Eagle.

Chris Benoit purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Benoit chose Lake Martin

We purchased the condo to be closer to the grandchildren in Atlanta and to Auburn University

What makes this condo unique

We love to swim, boat, and fish. We're very proud of the well-conceived and ample furnishings we've brought into this particular unit. It's a very non-typical rental unit. Our guests always say it's even better than the description. Two of the families who previously rented from us actually purchased units in our building after staying in our unit. That's quite a unique endorsement, and we're now delighted to have them as neighbors!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our stay this week in your wonderful condo. Just wanted to say thank you so much for the hospitality and warmth that fill your home here on the Lake. My first Lake Martin experience has been exceptional- and much of that thanks to y'all. It was truly a blessing!



[Footnote: these guests enjoyed everything so much, their family bought the unit next door!]

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I visited Lake Martin in July 2014. We stayed in this wonderful condo. This condo had everything you could ever want or need for a fantastic vacation. It is waterfront, with an excellent view of Lake Martin. It has easy access to the condo's boat dock (definitely a necessity). Entertainment abounds in this condo. There are TVs in every bedroom and living room with cable, Netflix, Roku, etc.. This was especially helpful for the young kids when weather took us off the lake. Internet access was a breeze with the Wifi provided. There is also access to a wonderful pool with a slide to entertain the children. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this condo is perfect for you. We especially enjoyed how the condo felt like home with all of the personal touches throughout the space. We had a great time and definitely would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, and the compliments you wrote in your e-mail. Particularly interesting to me was your observation of my father's 1933 diploma from API (now Auburn). Its presence here at the lake is an indication of how much we love it here, and love hosting new friends who feel like family by the end of their visit!

Southern Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to Alabama was wonderful, starting with the helpful involvement of the owners. Chris and Ron went out of their way to provide a beautiful condo with every detail thought out to make our stay effortless. The views from the balcony were always gorgeous, meals were easy with a well-appointed kitchen and plenty of seating, marinas were convenient, the boat slip was close to our condo, and their pontoon rental was an added bonus that everyone enjoyed. The lake kept us interested with fishing, swimming, cliff-jumping and boating. We ventured down to Auburn, only 45 minutes away, for shopping and great restaurants. But our biggest pleasure was the gracious hospitality of the owners. Many thanks, Chris and Ron -- five stars may not be enough!

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to hear about all the things y'all were discovering about our favorite lake. I've made myself a note to include our shortcut-to-Auburn directions in the guest binder, so it won't take you & others quite so long to get to the "Loveliest Village of the Plains."

Although the thought sometimes make us nervous, it WAS gratifying to hear that you hosted others from your group (staying in another condo) because you were confident you would have everything needed to prepare a meal for and to seat a crowd.

It was a huge help to the cleaning crew that y'all washed the linens before your departure. It allowed them more time to spend cleaning those things often ignored between summer guests when there are only a few hours between the departure of one family and the arrival of another.

And thank you too for your honesty in reporting the small mishap. Accidents happen, and it may take us awhile to discover what's missing or broken- but we will. We much prefer knowing what might need to be replaced BEFORE embarking on the 4-hour trip to the condo, rather than discovering it when we're there trying to enjoy time with the family. In this case, because of your being upfront with us, we were able to replace the item so that the next family coming in didn't have to go without....

We're happy to hear that you've already contacted your other family members about planning your return trip. And because of the distance you have to travel, I surely recommend a 10-14 day stay!

Great condo on Lake Martin

  • 4 of 5
Great condo on Lake Martin for a family, 3 bedrooms, large bathrooms, stocked kitchen, great views. We feel right at home, this was our second stay and we plan on going back next year to this unit. We like the location, in StillWaters, close to Niffers if you don't want to cook! The pool and slide were a lot of fun, lots of other young kids at the pool too. The owners check in and are very accommodating, the first time our child was in a crib and they had a crib, pack n play and high chair out waiting for us.

Owner's Response: We particularly love our returning guests, as we now consider you "family," and we try to remember and accommodate your preferences! With each successive visit, we're sure your son will grow into more and more of the great activities the Eagles Nest has to offer!

Great Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed these well-appointed and well-stocked accommodations. The spacious balcony was so nice to be on in the mornings and evenings. The frosty mugs were just one of the nice touches that made us feel so refreshed on our long weekend getaway. We cooled off in and relaxed by the pool during the day. We enjoyed watching lovely sunsets, finding the toads on our night stroll and seeing the stars in the sky and boats on the water. We watched our hockey team (Chicago Blackhawks) in the playoffs and the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on big-screen TV. Everything was high quality, up to date, in perfect order and well thought out. The owners have done a great job with this property.
Around the lake, we climbed the Fire Tower, hiked the Chimney Rock Loop of the Cherokee Ridge Alpine trail, enjoyed a concert and outdoor games at RXR Fest at Russell Lands, rented a pontoon and jumped off Acapulco Rock. These were all fun discoveries for our first real Alabama adventure. And, as Auburn family, we were very amused by the well-done Tiger-theme design scheme.

Owner's Response: We are particularly pleased that y'all took in so many of the sights and activities that our area features. I enjoy pulling particular articles out of Lake Magazine to put in our Guest Binder, to showcase things other families might enjoy.
Although our grandsons aren't old enough to jump off Acapulco Rock, for now they're happy enough to ride bikes around the complex and have PawPaw pull them behind the pontoon boat on the 2-person tube. The many coves close to Stoneview Summit provide lots of areas for tubing and floating! I have to stop talking about it, or I'll want to leave now to go back up there!!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this gorgeous condo for a family gathering to celebrate my son's graduation from Auburn. The pictures REALLY do not do it justice. Very spacious, extremely well furnished and well stocked. The view from the large balcony was extraordinary and peaceful. Chris was very easy to communicate with and extremely gracious and helpful. The grounds at Stoneview Summit are very well kept and the pool area is very nice. To top it off, we had absolutely fantastic weather!! I definitely hope to go back to this unit on Lake Martin. Thanks Chris!!
