-- THE PROPERTY --
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed | Bedroom 4: 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Full Pullout Couch
A sense of peace washes over you as you approach 'Arcade Cove,' a 1,200-square-foot home, surrounded by a forest of pine and hardwood. From the driveway, you'll begin to see glimpses of sparkling Lake Martin - where you'll find yourself enjoying most of your time.
Drop your bags in one of the 4 bedrooms, before throwing on your bathing suit to rush down to the dock! Laughter echoes across the water as you dive in with perfect form. With a water depth of 13 feet at the end of the dock, there's no need to worry about making too big of a splash. Push the provided canoe in for a leisurely paddle to the other side of the lake! If you'd rather stay ashore, just sit back and relax while perfecting your tan.
As the late afternoon approaches, head inside for an air-conditioned reprieve and a catnap on the living room's plush furnishings. Tune into your favorite shows on the flat-screen cable TV or unplug with a new book. If you happen to visit during the fall, don't hesitate to throw a few logs on the wood-burning fireplace!
The open-concept living area also features the fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, ample cookware, and an island with 3 bar stools. As you prepare dishes inside, the chef can fire up the gas grill, along with the 2 charcoal grills, to prepare the barbecue. Gather around the 6-person dining table or feast al fresco on the furnished deck. Afterward, lounge on the covered portion of the deck; watching the sun slowly set in the west.
End the day on a sweet note with s'mores and stargazing around the outdoor fire pit. When you grow tired, head back indoors. Easily get ready for bedtime in one of the 4 bathrooms, stocked with fresh towels and complimentary toiletries - just in case you forgot your own. Crawl into your chosen bed - whether king or queen - for a restful night's sleep. The kiddos of the group will sleep soundly in the 2 twin beds of the 4th bedroom.
-- THE LOCATION --
Instantly enjoy all of your favorite water activities while staying at this idyllic property on the shore of Lake Martin, Alabama's largest lake! Bring along your own watercraft to take advantage of the 44,000-acre reservoir or rent one from Russell Marine, located just a short drive away. Easily fall in love with the aquatic and wooded landscape while you enjoy fishing, boating, and daring adventures like jumping off of Chimney Rock - a tradition when you visit Lake Martin.
Even if you visit in the fall, you'll be treated to an array of fun activities, along with the spectacular colors of the forest's changing leaves. Pops of red, yellow, and orange will catch your eye as you hike along trails such as Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail or Smith Mountain Alpine Trail - both located on the water's edge. Horseback riding is another great option in the colder seasons and can be found at The Stables at Russell Crossroads, just 15 minutes away.
Make sure to bring along at least one nice outfit for dinner at SpringHouse. This restaurant, one of Alabama's finest eateries, features refined seasonal southern cuisine set in a rustic-chic building - where you can glimpse the cooks busy at work in the open kitchen or meat curing in front of the fireplace's stone hearth. For a special treat, ask the in-house sommelier to surprise you with a dessert and wine pairing!
Enjoy a more low-key dinner at Kowaliga Restaurant - accessible via land or boat, so whenever you're ready to eat, dock at their public pier for a satisfying meal of perfectly fried onion rings and fish tacos. Additional restaurants include The Landing Restaurant, Cotton's Alabama Barbecue, and Catherine's Market, which also features a small, local grocery store.
