You don’t have to own property on Lake Martin to have fun here. In fact, a day trip on your boat can be a super Lake Martin experience. I’m not saying you shouldn’t buy a home – I need to pay the power bill just like everyone else – but I am saying that you can get a lot of enjoyment out of just your boat and the people in it.
Pack a cooler. Find an island and anchor. Cruise the entire lake. Tie up at a restaurant for lunch. Visit friends. Ski and wake board in the calm waters of a slough. Enjoy drinks on the boat at sun set. Not a bad way to spend the day!
I recently sold a home to a couple who had been doing just this : day tripping from Georgia and putting their boat in at River North Marina. They love to wake board, so they liked the calm waters on the north side of Lake Martin. They had plenty of Lake Martin day trips and several rented lake houses before they finally decided to buy. These are great ways to get to know the lake.
