Lake Martin water levels are controlled by a hydroelectric dam. Water is lowered by 7 feet in the winter. This lowering begins on 9/1 at about 2 feet per month. The water starts to rise on Feb. 20 and is back up to full pool by May 1.

BLUE CREEK BRIDGE - IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT THE MAJORITY (85-90%) OF THE BOATS ON LAKE MARTIN CAN NAVIGATE UNDER THE BLUE CREEK BRIDGE ON HIGHWAY 49. You are advised that navigation of your boat under this bridge is contingent upon the water level at certain time of the year. NOTE: A boat with a tower or rack will not be able to go under this bridge; however, the lake on the low side of the bridge (approximately 400 acres) is very calm, peaceful, and a great place to water ski, knee board, ride jet skis, and ride pull behind tubes. Our guests enjoy kayaking on this part of the lake, main body is too busy and rough.

The best time for trophy striped bass fishing is February to May (Alex City Guide Service, Captain David Hare, 256-401-3089, davidhare@yahoo.com). Lake Martin is an "Alabama Treasured Lake" and is on the "Alabama Bass Trail".

The "Greenhouse" is located on the banks of Lake Martin in Tallapoosa County, AL. November, 2015, The Washington Post ranked Tallapoosa County the "prettiest" county in all the land of Alabama.

This upscale vacation rental is 22 miles from Auburn University, 1 1/2 miles from Stillwaters Golf course, and 2 miles from five (5) of the most popular restaurants on the lake. Lakeside Marina just 1 mile and offers pontoon boat and jet ski rentals.

Also, we have a shallow swimming area, 2 - 4 feet deep, for your young ones to swim.

For the quickest response, please contact Marie by phone 7:30am - 9:00pm CST 256-234-2351 or cell # 256-794-5917. After hours, leave a voice message.

The home was beautiful. Very clean house with the small things included. We were great with soft music playing, fresh cut flowers on the table and a pie. Loved all the amenities. Great destination for a family vacation.

It's all in the details

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation rental properties and many times it's the small things that make it memorable. Don't get me wrong, the big things were awesome, too. The location is private, but not secluded. The layout and construction of the house are quality, with the most gorgeous hardwood floors I've seen. The covered back porch is my idea of heaven. But the little things...supplies that you usually forget at the grocery are all there, coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper and paper towels...fresh flowers on the table, a key lime pie in the fridge and a personal note on the counter--all make you feel welcome...the time on all the appliances, DVD players, etc. is set to the right time and not blinking...the hummingbird feeder was full...all of the dirt-dauber nests had been cleaned off of the boat house...there were fishing poles and equipment in the basement...cute towel animals on each bed...it really is all in the details. Having my husband and all of my adult children under one roof for Mothers' Day was the best thing about our weekend, but the house itself was a close second!
