About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Our condo is located in StillWaters, just 30 miles from the Auburn campus, and is part of the finest and newest complex to be built in Dadeville's premier gated, lake, golf and tennis community. Although this is our personal unit, we are willing to share it from time to time with others who want the best, and who'll appreciate the subtle [wink] affiliation with our favorite Tigers.

If golf is your thing, you'll be delighted with the StillWaters course, which offers great rates for a challenging outing. And with Robert Trent Jones' Grand National less than 30 miles away in Opelika, you could easily fill up a week playing several different courses from this home base.

The condo is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath Penthouse unit that we consider to be the best at Stoneview Summit, due to its spaciousness and incomparable lake views. The 2000 sq feet of living area are more than amply furnished to make you feel pampered. We offer WiFi and unlimited long distance, as well as internet-ready TVs, Roku, and BluRay players. Ceiling heights are 12 to 15 ft throughout; and the floors are real hardwood, with ceramic tile bathrooms and carpeted bedrooms. The kitchen is quite spacious, with granite counter tops; and it includes all of the appliances (stainless) and accessories that a cook could want for a week or weekend getaway. The three bedrooms each have a flatscreen TV, and two have internet-ready BluRay players. If you enjoy Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc., then you can watch movies or listen to music in the privacy of your own bedroom or on the 55 inch internet ready high definition TV in the living area. There is also a 5-disk CD player and 2 iPod/iPhone docking stations for those who love their own style of music. If you MUST bring your work with you, there's a color printer/scanner on a dedicated desk away from the noise.

For those cool evenings, there are two gas fireplaces, one in the living area and the other on the spacious balcony that overlooks Lake Martin and has a western view for enjoying spectacular sunsets. The balcony also has an eating table and chairs, a chaise lounge, swivel rockers, and an infrared grill with a separate burner and all the necessary accessories to make your grilling experience enjoyable.

Each bathroom has a standard tub/shower combo, with the exception of the master bath that has an oversized tub and a shower big enough for two. All of the bath counter tops are granite. The bedroom closets are spacious, including a huge walk-in located in the master suite. The front bedrooms have curtains as well as blinds for added room-darkening.

Following Auburn’s National Championship Victory, we created the “Eagles' Nest” as our getaway place, and for fans and outdoor enthusiasts who want the best in rental accommodations, as well as the peace and quiet that Lake Martin can bring.

For some, the “Plains” are great on game day, but just too hectic afterward. We have so much more to offer than the area hotels that jack up their prices during football season. With us, you can spread out and enjoy each other's company in a home setting. You won't have to crowd around a tiny TV to watch the other games, nor wait in line at just another restaurant.

On site there is a great wading pool with an unusual rock slide and several waterfalls that lend uniqueness to the sun-bathing and swimming experience. There are covered areas for relaxing while the kids frolic.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, head on over to the interdenominational Church of the Living Waters, which features outdoor Sunday inspiration that's within easy walking distance or that can be reached by boat.

Speaking of boats, our condo comes with its own boat slip that can accommodate up to a 24 foot boat. If you don't want to bring your own vessel, ask us about pontoon rental; or check out the local marinas for jet skis or ski boats.

For those who like to fish, there are three fishing ponds on the StillWaters property that are stocked nicely with crappie, brim and large mouthed bass. Yes, you can catch an 8-pounder from the pond! Otherwise, if you want 400,000 acres of water, there is always Lake Martin, considered to be one of the cleanest lakes in America. That is where we enjoy swimming, as the water is deep immediately off shore, and the boat traffic is minimal.

There are grocery and convenience stores nearby, several excellent restaurants accessible either by car or by boat, and marinas that provide fuel for your own craft as needed. Check out our map to familiarize yourself with all the area has to offer.

Weeks and weekends are limited in this unit as we love to use it ourselves; but let us know your needs (as far ahead as possible) and we will do our best to accommodate them. We are looking for select non-smoker families to share our lovely condo, and would be happy to share additional photos upon request.

About Chris Benoit

My husband and I have been in real estate for over 25 years, primarily during our careers with Michelin in Dothan and Bridgestone in Tennessee. We purchased this condo inspired by our love for Auburn University and the fact that our daughter and her family live in nearby Atlanta.

We have been traveling both within and outside the US for the past several years and enjoy Europe especially.

Our picture in this listing was taken at the Grand Canyon following Auburn's awesome victory over the Oregon Ducks in Phoenix. War Eagle!

Chris Benoit purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Benoit chose Alabama

We purchased the condo to be closer to the grandchildren in Atlanta and to Auburn University

What makes this condo unique

We love to swim, boat, and fish. We're very proud of the well-conceived and ample furnishings we've brought into this particular unit. It's a very non-typical rental unit. Our guests always say it's even better than the description. Three of the families who previously rented from us actually purchased units in our complex after staying in our unit. That's quite a unique endorsement, and we're now delighted to have them as neighbors!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our stay this week in your wonderful condo. Just wanted to say thank you so much for the hospitality and warmth that fill your home here on the Lake. My first Lake Martin experience has been exceptional- and much of that thanks to y'all. It was truly a blessing!

[Footnote: these guests enjoyed everything so much, their family bought the unit next door!]

There are not enough superlative adjectives to describe this condo! It was absolutely perfect and Chris and Ron are wonderful hosts. The condo is more than fully equipped and the decor is beautiful and relaxing. The balcony is fabulous for evenings with the outdoor fireplace and plenty of seating. Chris and Ron checked with us to ensure our stay was pleasant and that we had everything we needed.

We rented the condo to attend our son's graduation at Auburn and the trip to campus was easy. I would recommend this condo to anyone and everyone!

Owner's Response: Susan, we were delighted to host your family for such a memorable occasion! Our proximity to the Auburn campus was an important factor in our purchase decision- it's such a short trip! I know the weekend's schedule was really packed for all of you; come back again when you can really enjoy the lake!

Even better than expected!

The condo was perfect. Very spacious and elegant but also felt like home. All the personal touches were wonderful. Chris was such a pleasure to talk to and work with. The rock slide pool was definately a plus for our 4 year old grandson. He wanted to live there forever :). We will be back again.

Eagle's Nest is absolutely beautiful, well appointed, and convenient to Auburn!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious unit is beautifully decorated and in an excellent location on Lake Martin. We have stayed in several nice rentals in the area but this one is our new favorite. Chris was a pleasure to work with. Whether you're needing a lake retreat or a game day getaway, you won't be disappointed with Eagle's Nest!

Owner's Response: Sounds like you found the birthday candles & celebratory tableware! What a nice way to finish out the Music & Miracles concert weekend. We do value our proximity to Auburn, as we quite often find ourselves heading in the direction of the Loveliest Village on the Plains! Glad to hear we're your new favorite- come back soon!!

Beautiful Condo, Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough in words how amazing our July 4th vacation in this rental was! There was plenty of room for my family (6 total) and room to spare. The condo was cozy and great for our little get away. We rented a boat and got to experience all Lake Martin had to offer. The condo was a convenient location to everything we needed and more. We ate out a couple nights but ate in using the kitchen and grill the rest of the time. The view from the balcony is exquisite and we enjoyed watching the sun set every night. Chris and Ron were great to rent from. They were easy to communicate with and were so helpful. We would love to stay here again in the future. Thank you so much to Ron and Chris for allowing us to experience all that Eagle's Nest has to offer. War Eagle!

Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Lake Martin was great. Chris made sure everything was 'teed up' for us and was always very accessible with any questions during our stay. The condo was beautiful, and we felt like we had the resort to ourselves. The views are spectacular and the condo is so very comfortable. Our kids had a great time jumping off Chimney Rock, tubing and just swimming in one of the several quiet coves on the lake. The Benoits graciously rented us their pontoon boat which made our stay that much more enjoyable. Niffers is a great local restaurant that we visited multiple times during our stay. Highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Through texts back and forth during the week, we enjoyed hearing about the kids going from "too scared to try the jump" to "jumping off multiple times" by the end of your stay. Hopefully Evan will choose Auburn over those GA & TN colleges y'all visited, so you'll have more opportunities for return visits! The colors in the Fall make for even more spectacular views from the balcony!!
