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 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 & some fishing gear provided. The water lovers will find a swimming area and a wet slip to park a boat or wave runner. There are several places to rent boats just a few miles away. For those bringing their boats, there's a public boat launch (Smith Boat Landing) just across the large slough but out of sight of the house.
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 that is furnished just for kids.
After a long day of playing outside they can play with the wii game system located in the bunk room or choose from the 4 tvs scattered around the house.
This house has lots of room for outdoor entertaining. It has a large deck (partially covered) ,a screened porch, a front porch with a swing and a covered carport.. The main deck extends across the entire lake side of the house and has a comfortable area for seating and a large dinning table. You can find additional seating and dinning area on the cozy screened porch. The covered carport is a great place to host a large group or if you should have a rainy day, its a great place for the kids to play.
The interior of this home is beautifully decorated and designed to showcase the lake. The great room has cathedral ceilings and an entire wall of windows facing the water.

MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH GREW UP IN THE LAKE MARTIN AREA. WE RAISED OUR DAUGHTERS ON THE LAKE AND ARE ALL TRULY 'LAKE PEOPLE'. WE HAVE ENJOYED EVERY ASPECT OF LAKE LIVING .
THE GREATEST APPEAL OF THIS LAKE HOUSE IS THAT IT IS SO DEFINITELY A HOME, NOT A PERFECT PLACE BUT A PLACE YOU CAN RELAX AND BE COMFORTABLE. WHEN WE DECIDED TO RENT IT, WE LEFT IT FURNISHED JUST AS IT WAS. OUR FAMILY RETURNS THERE OFTEN AND IT IS STILL OUR HOME AND IT WILL FEEL LIKE YOUR HOME WHEN YOU VACATION THERE.
This house sits right on the lake, so close you almost think you're on a boat instead of in a house and yet there are large flat yards on either side with room for everyone to get out and play. There are only 4 houses on Tranquility Point. None of them have full time residents, nor are rental, so much of the time you have the whole point to yourself.
