Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

At the end of a beautiful unpaved country road is where you’ll find Water’s Edge nestled on the banks of Lake Mitchell’s Walnut Creek. The property is located in central Alabama between Montgomery and Birmingham and only 6.5 miles off Interstate 65.

The home features a full eat-in kitchen, complete with cookware and utensils. A family area right off of the kitchen, 2 full baths, 5 bedrooms, laundry room, and 2 wrap-around decks.

The bedrooms’ include two with one queen-size bed each; two with one twin-size bed each; and one with a full-size bed. On the lower deck you’ll find a table to share meals with family and friends and a small sitting area to anxiously await your freshly caught fish to fry. On the upper deck are rockers calling your name to just sit and relax as you enjoy watching the day break or come to an end.

Oh, and be sure not to forget the boat! There’s a private dock, a public boat launch minutes away, and a marina just up the creek that provides fuel for both you and your boat.

About David Berdeaux

When we bought our lake house (gg’s Place) in 2006, we met our beloved neighbor Margaret Dodd. At first glance we saw a frail, stooped, 90 year old woman but we soon learned she was much more than that. At 90 years old and living on the lake, we never saw her without being dressed, full makeup, and heels! She would meet us on Friday afternoons with fresh baked cookies, strawberry pies, and other assorted goodies. We spent hours rocking on her porch and listening to tales of the old days on the lake when moonshiners would “run” their stills just up the creek, or a seaplane would land on the lake and bring friends to visit. She told stories of how she taught her grandsons to ski “right off of the beach” and how her late husband Garvin would go fishing early in the mornings and she had a full breakfast ready for him and the other fisherman that would “drop by.” She even had a story of how as an Eastern Star Matron she was once locked out on a balcony at the Governor’s Mansion and had to shimmy across a ledge in an evening gown to get to an open window and climb back into the mansion.

We never dreamed that one day we would have the privilege to own her home with its rich history. We purchased the home in the fall of 2016 and have been working and adding our touches to Water’s Edge ever since.

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The lake house was a great atmosphere. Everything we needed was there. David Bordeaux does a great job with need to know info. The place was clean. The price was great also. The only improvement I would make would be to work on the smell on the inside of the house. It has an old house smell. Not a huge issue, but something I would address. I would recommend renting a boat from Kelly's (912) 604-3274. Great prices and service.

Super cute and great for making memories

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family. We made some great memories this past weekend. I would tell anyone who was thinking of renting this property that they will not be disappointed. The owners have tried to anticipate your needs throughout the home, from wine openers to extra blankets and REAL toilet paper! The porches are comfortable and the views are so peaceful. Our family will definitely be back next summer.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Watersedge! The house was cozy and well stocked. There were plenty of blankets and even little throws. The porches were wonderful and we took advantage of both the upper and lower decks. The beach area was a perfect place for the kids to play. We will definitely be back!!
