The address is Tranquility Point and true to its name, it is located on a quiet little street settled in an area of the lake with very little boat or street traffic. It has a serene atmosphere which can be contributed to being directly on Lake Martin.
This home is the perfect place to bring large groups of extended family or friends because it accommodates 14 people and has something for everyone to do. For the fishermen there's an underwater 'monster light' designed to attract fish(see pictures) The water lovers will find a swimming area and a pier with a boat slip. It is located on a very large slough with very little boat traffic which makes it a great place to ride wave runners or pull the kids behind the boat. For those bringing their boats, there's a public boat launch (Smith Boat Landing) just minutes away
Kids will love this home because it was built with them in mind. It has a large flat yard with a swing set and a custom built playhouse. There's plenty of room for that family ball game.

Lake Martin is our home! My husband and I both grew up in this area and raised our daughters at the lake. We are all truly lake people who have enjoyed every aspect of lake living. Now I love hearing from my renters who are excited about being at the lake and all the fun they are having.
THE GREATEST APPEAL OF THIS LAKE HOUSE IS THAT IT IS SO DEFINITELY A H0ME! NOT A PERFECT PLACE BUT A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN RELAX AND BE COMFORTABLE. MY FAMILY RETURNS THERE FREQUENTLY AND IT IS STILL OUR HOME. BUT IT WILL FEEL LIKE YOUR HOME WHEN YOU VACATION THERE.
IT IS DECORATED FOR ALL THE HOLIDAYS, THE KITCHEN IS FULLY FURNISHED & BEST OF ALL IT HAS A WARMTH THAT MAKES IT PERFECT FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS
EVERY SEASON HAS ITS SPECIAL THINGS TO DO. Of course in the summer there's swimming, boating, skiing fishing, sunning, going to Chimney Rock or to Chucks for pizza. etc., etc.
But there are also lots of things to do in the other seasons. One thing my family loves to do is hunt arrowheads and I know some of our renters have enjoyed that too. When the water goes down, we get on the pontoon boat and head for the sandy shores and sand bars. Someone in the group nearly always find at least a broken part of one. We have accumulated a pretty large collection over the years.
In the winter there's an outdoor fire pit to roast marshmallows and an indoor gas fire place to curl up by with a good book.
Don't miss a chance to check out Smith Mountain (15 minutes away), hike the nature trail to the top & then climb the fire tower. This has all been just recently renovated and is open to the public. The view of the lake from there is unbelievable! In the fall the leaves are absolutely beautiful.
There's also Horseshoe Bend National Military Park where the famous battle between the Creek Indians and US militia led by Andrew Jackson was fought. There's a museum full of Indian artifacts and then trails to walk to see the battleground.
Other things our family enjoy are biking or walking through the quiet neighborhood or getting up a ballgame in the large side yard.
And don't forget we're 30 minutes from Auburn University where, depending on the season, you can usually take in a ball game of some sort. Also in the Auburn/Opelika area you' ll find a large choice of restaurants and movies & lots of unique little shops.
