Little Kowaliga House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We hope you feel welcomed and relaxed at this gorgeous Lake Martin home. This home is nestled on a secluded, wooded lot. You'll have plenty of elbow room with 290' of lake frontage, covered boat slip, floating dock, beautifully landscaped lot and boathouse with laundry, ping pong and darts.

This home has something for everyone. Close proximity of the house to the water allows everyone to be connected to the action, whether sitting on the covered porch, floating dock, in the boathouse or at the beach. With plenty of different places to be at the house, you can be near everyone or get some distance from the activity.

The great room is terrific for entertaining and has a rustic vaulted ceiling, pine wood floors, stone fireplace, two relaxing seating areas and a large farmhouse table with seating for ten. The kitchen is fully equipped with all granite countertops, huge central island, beverage center, stainless farmhouse sink and stainless appliances. The central island has seating for 5 and still leaves plenty of room for the cook to prepare meals without everyone being under foot. The beverage center has an ice maker and small fridge to store drinks. The stainless steel range is electric with convection oven. Two Queen bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths are also on this level. The "Front Bedroom" has the half bath. These 2 bedrooms share a full hall bath. There is a hall door that allows these rooms that can be closed off from the rest of the main level.

The Master suite is 3/4 flight up. The suite includes king size bed, slate floors and shower in the en suite bathroom and private balcony overlooking the lake. There is a TV located in the Master bedroom.

The Bunkroom is 1/4 flight down. The room sleeps seven, has tongue and groove pine walls, French doors to a lakeside porch with swing. The en suite bathroom has a double vanity and tub/shower arrangement. The bunks are arranged with twin over full beds and an extra twin bed. The bunkroom has a TV/DVD combination set.

The large covered porch overlooking the lake has heavy timbers and outdoor stone fireplace and is a great place to start or finish your day on the lake. There are two outdoor tables for dining outside along with a picnic table on the dock. We have a cable connection on the covered porch. So bring your small TV from home and enjoy lounging on the sofa outside while enjoying the game! The covered porch has custom built security gates for the young ones.

Wonderful time at the Lakehouse again!

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing our 4th family vacation at Loving Life. We have been here 10 days and have loved every minute of it! We love the open concept of the kitchen and living area as well as the wonderful porch. Our grandchildren love the bunk room and the sandy beach area! The older kids love fishing and jumping off the dock! Aimee is great to work with and we can't wait to get back!

Guys' Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 of my golf buddies from California enjoyed a 5 night stay at "Loving Life". This was our home base, and we traveled 4 days to various Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail sites and 1 day to Auburn for a SEC football game. This house provided a perfect retreat for us with beautiful views of the lake and changing of the leaves to fall colors. Everything about the rental process and stay was perfect, and I have nothing but great things to say about the owners and accommodations. My best memories of the house will be the nightly meals, chats in front of the outdoor firelplace, and ping pong tournaments.

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Loving Life for almost 3 weeks and enjoyed every second. We didn't want to go home. We loved the quaint cabin feel and the layout was fantastic with the bunkroom to stash the kids. The location was secluded and quiet. During the week, it felt like we had that part of the lake all to ourselves. Aimee was great and always available. We will definitely look to stay again.

Amazing Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at "Loving Life". The home is very spacious with large living areas. The home is also very child-proof which came in handy for my son, niece and nephew that range in age from 2 - 4. There was lots of room for the kids to play on the large back porch as well as on the beach area.

Everything about the house was just as good or better than the descriptions and photos on the rental listing. The owners were very accomodating to our specific needs and gave very detailed instructions on where to find everything in the house. I would recommend this home to any family that is looking to spend a relaxing week at one of the most beautiful places in the South. We are already looking at the calendar for next year to plan another vacation at this amazing home!

Fun time for all

  • 5 of 5

It was a very comfortable house for my children and grandchildren. The porch was so nice and we spent most of our time there. One of the best features for us was the beachy area where the small children could play without their floaties. We also liked the closeness to the water. It was nice to have the availbility of the canoe and other water play things. The bunkroom was also very nice and we had 7 children sleeping there.

The owners were very nice to deal with. The house is nice and comfortable but not so decorated that you are worried all the time that you are going to mess something up. We have stayed in other houses that you felt children should not be allowed.

I would recommend it to anyone.
