About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

***Newly Renovated***

Riverbend is a terrific lake front home on magnificent Lake Martin. Conveniently located just south of the Highway 280 bridge Riverbend offers instant relaxation with easy access.  Riverbend is built around a fabulous great room which overlooks the lake and also includes: a woodburning stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling, expansive windows, a 40' LCD TV for the big game, and a bar between the kitchen making it perfect for entertaining.  

In the finished basement of the house are a pool table and a game/card table that makes this area perfect for the kids to play and not interrupt a good conversation upstairs.  And when they go to bed, the area is custom made for a guys night in.  This is a finished basement game room with a card table.  You must access this room by going out onto the lakeside deck down the stairs to the entrance.  *You will have to go outside to access this area.*  The pool table is not 'top of the line' and is meant for casual play.  Please don't expect much from our aging rental home pool table ;)

There are 3 master suites (all having their own private bathrooms) and one 'bunk room' for a total of 4 bedrooms.  The 'bunk room' is a converted carport and has four twin beds.  This room is designed for kids and may not be suitable for adults in your party.  There is no closet in this bedroom and no chest of drawers.  

A gently sloping lawn brings you to the lakefront that features a stone seawall, large pier, later for easy water access, and plenty of room for several boats.

What makes this house unique

Many families come back to Riverbend year after year because it is truely a great lake home. Ease access from Birmingham, Atlanta, Montgomery and Auburn/Opelika make this home easy to get to and easy to find. Riverbend is located in a quite residential neighborhood just 3 minutes from Highway 280 making it super easy to find.

Guests will enjoy a terrific and very large pier and dock. The pier features ample room to tie up to 3 boats and also offers steps into the water for easy access. A gently sloping yard makes it easy for everyone to get to the waters edge.

An expansive living, dining and kitchen area make it easy for everyone to relax together. This area features: large cathedral ceilings, wood burning fireplace, 40' LCD TV, and huge picture windows to take in the peaceful Lake Martin views.

Downstairs is a game room with a pool/ping-pong table to keep the fun going and give the kids a place to get away.

Guests routinly enjoy fishing from the doc and banks. There are also great fishing spots nearby by boat if that is where your heart lies.

Easy access to Alexander City (about 15 minutes) and Auburn/Opelika (about 35 to 45 minutes) make this more than just a lake getaway. Shopping and other activities are close at hand.

Riverbend also makes a perfect Auburn home game base camp.

We are sure that you will love your stay with us at Riverbend.

Guestbook comments from the manager

All of my family members had a great time at the Riverbend house on Lake Martin - and we definitely want to go back again next year!

Some of the features we loved: it was clean and spacious, lots of seating areas with a great view of the water, each of the bedrooms had its own bathroom, the kitchen was large and well stocked with dishes/utensils/cookware, located close to Hwy 280 and easy to find, and of course being right on the water to relax and play.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful lake home.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting lake Martin. We had great weather, and the house had everything we needed. I'd definitely recommend renting a boat if you don't have one, the closest marina is right around the corner. The neighbors were friendly and said hello. Water around the house was calm and you don't have to worry about a lot of boats, but the big portion of the lake is minutes away.

Loved this place, all the neighbors were friendly. Enough room for all to spread out. I have reserved it again for next year same time. Wished we could have stayed longer. Great Lake house!

Great House on Lake Martin

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The house was extremely clean and it was equipped with everything that you would need to make your stay a fun one. We had the chance to meet some very friendly neighbors. I had 6 people including myself in the house and it was very comfortable. It is an open layout which was perfect for us to be in the kitchen cooking while being able to entertain and interact with everyone. Each bedroom (3 true bedrooms) has its own bathroom with the addition sleeping area (a converted carport) having its own bathroom. Shopping and restaurants are about a 10 minute drive making the location excellent. The Harris Properties staff was easy to work with when making my reservation.

If you are a person who is skeptical about renting something "sight unseen" because people will put awesome pictures on a website and then when you get to the place it looks awful, dirty and smelly, I can say that this house looks exactly like the pictures on the website.

River Bend is the best house on the lake!

Riverbend on Lake Martin

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday Dec 16th for the weekend. We were greeted with a beautiful smile from Mrs Jane who lives across the street. The place was very very clean, spacious, and comforting. We grilled, shot pool, and fished within a 2 second walk from the house. Caught nothing but a beautiful breeze with the family. No one wanted to leave. We were all sighing about having to leave a remarkable place. Thank you to Mrs Jane, her husband and Harris Properties. We are looking forward to some summertime here at Riverbend.

Riverbend Lake House

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverbend Lake House. We had plenty of room for everyone. Other then purchasing necessities the house was equipped with everything we needed. The only thing that was disappointing was that we could not play pool on the pool table. The pool sticks were not usable.
