About Louisa Patterson

Our family purchased this home in 2007 as a second home and for our extended family gatherings. Our parents never left and this became their main home. They have since built another home nearby. We still use this for family reunions and rent it out the rest of the time.

Louisa Patterson purchased this house in 2006

Why Louisa Patterson chose Alabama

4 generations of our family have been vacationing at Blue Creek since the 1930's. As our family grew, so did the need for more room. We love Blue Creek for it's convenience to major cities, and of course Auburn. Many of us are Auburn Alum.

What makes this house unique

The Blue Creek area is great for skiing, boating, and fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Louisa,



I wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time staying at your parents house. It was a perfect size and location. Our Thanksgiving dinner was delicious and a great time was had by all.



Thanks for all of your help in making the trip successful,



Liz

handicapped and love it

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love this vacation spot. The kids love the lake and outdoor spaces. I am handicapped and I really appreciate the fact that I can manage to move about with my electric wheelchair. The owner is really nice and easy to work with.

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay! We've stayed here before and love it for our extended family. The layout works! Having two bedrooms with twin beds and two with queens gives us flexibility in sleeping arrangements. The sunroom makes a perfect tv room and play/eat space for the kids while the adults relax in the greatroom. Having everything on one floor is a big convenience for all ages. The lot is level and borders a quiet slough--more pluses! And the Blue Creek location with its many nearby

amenities is the best on Lake Martin! We'll be back--again!

Great yard, perfect spot on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Everything was super great. Louisa was very accommodating. The house has all of the essentials like more than enough towels, deck chairs, cooking utensils. The yard was huge and well maintained. We really enjoyed our time at the house!

Auburn graduation weekend

  • 5 of 5

Wow! That's about all I can say about our weekend in this house! We wound up with a group of 9 people staying for graduation weekend, some coming and going on different days, and every single one without exception told me how perfect they thought this place was! It had more than enough room for everyone, was laid out beautifully for our needs, and accommodated the three dogs we had in our party! It was spotlessly clean and ample linens were available. It's right on the lake, as you can see from the pictures (which don't do it justice, by the way), so it was wonderful for the animals. And its only about 30-40 minutes away from the graduation venue at Auburn. Plenty of parking for all our vehicles, too! After graduation, we had an additional 5 kids join us for a cookout. The nice, flat lawn out back between the house and the water was perfect for all the lawn games we brought to play and there were plenty of chairs for people to sit on the deck and eat. And finally, on Sunday afternoon, we rented a pontoon boat from the nearby marina and the 7 of us who were still there (and 3 dogs) spent the afternoon cruising around on the lake! It was the perfect way to end a perfect weekend! If anyone is considering a family get together at Lake Martin, I highly recommend this place. We didn't have need to contact the owner but I feel like she would have been very helpful if we had, based on other reviewers remarks and on how promptly she always responded to my emails.

If I had any complaints at all, it was that the house needs more coffee mugs and more trash cans. We had three mugs for 9 people and had to drink our morning coffee from doubled Solo cups! And the only trash cans in the house were one full sized one in the kitchen and one small one in the master bathroom. Not big problems but those are the only things I felt needed any type of improvement. Once again, highly recommended and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful house with my family, Louisa!!! We will be back!

A sweet place to winter

  • 5 of 5

Louisa cottage on the water was heavenly. We stayed 6 months to get away from the cold winter months of WV. Love.the floor.plan and the.spaciousness of the place. The water.views Were.wonderful. we saw a.lot.of.wildlife including a.bear at the.property. We enjoyed the Canadian.geese and their babies, also the mallard.duck.and her 12 ducklings. We also saw lots.of birds, hawks and owls. And let not.forget the.squirrels, chipmunk and ground squirrels. Our dachshund had a.ball.

Louisa, thank you.for all your kindness and allowing us to.stay the winter. I hope we.can.come back if our.health allows us.to.

We left you a.toaster and other odds and ends. Ed loved his small house projects. He loves to make things work better than they did.before. Hope to see you again.

Sincerely,

Ed and Sandra Bragg
