Wow...what a nice, warm welcome we had!! We arrived to find soft music playing in the background, fresh flowers on the dining room table, and a delicious Key Lime Pie waiting for us on the counter! Not to mention the breathtaking views of the lake to go along with it! This is the perfect getaway spot, almost completely private, nothing but birds chirping and squirrels playing all around! We spent our days fishing on the pier and our evenings roasting marshmallows, relaxing by the fire. Our son caught his very 1st fish here!!! I would definitely recommend this property. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owners were so kind. We are already trying to clear our calendars for a return visit!!

***** Five Star REVIEW

This is our second stay at this property and we were extremely pleased. The house was spotless and in great shape just like 2 years ago. Bill and Marie make you feel at home and at peace as soon as you walk in the door. No drama, everything works, and the setting is quiet and peaceful. Great view from a great porch. Easy drive to an Auburn game. We will be back! Thanks and War Eagle!

We love The Greenhouse!! The accommodations are spacious, very clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxing!!! It is easy to reach but yet in a quiet area of Lake Martin! Everyone from my 79 year old mother, my husband and I to my college-aged children are able to enjoy themselves thoroughly while staying here!! The Tidwells treat you like family and even leave you a delicious dessert waiting for your arrival!! You cannot go wrong by picking the Greenhouse as your next vacation destination!!!

Wonderful Experience and will rent again!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The 'Greenhouse' feels just like home! It is cozy but spacious. The owners saw that we had everything we needed ahead of our arrival. The location is at the end of a quite cove and tucked away in the trees. Great view of water and the ping pong table provided some heated competition among friends when we were not boating or swimming. I would recommend the property to families or couples looking to get away on Lake Martin. We plan to go back!
Thanks Bill and Marie for making our stay a wonderful experience!

The Greenhouse was breathtaking. From the moment you walked in you could tell the homeowners took pride in the home, and went beyond measure to welcome you. There were kayaks and a canoe to take out on the water, the kitchen had all the appliances needed to cook with, the porch area was inviting with a swing and plenty of chairs to sit and relax. Mr. Bill and Mrs. Marie showed us exceptional hospitality, they were always a phone call away, and made the process stress free. Not only were the home and homeowners exceptional, but the people we met at Lake Martin were just as great. All of the places we visited (Lakeside Marina, a restaurant, even the Dollar General), showed us the same hospitality. It was so refreshing to meet people so kind, and eager to help! I would highly recommend The Greenhouse to anyone wanting to stay on Lake Martin, I know I will be returning!

Best lake house rental experience of my life

The home is beautiful, cozy yet spacious, welcoming, well appointed, and extremely restful. There are native pink azaleas by the lake close to the house which were attracting butterflies when we visited in late March. It is in a secluded, quiet cove. The porch is large and gorgeous, with a lovely view. The dock is the perfect size and easy access. The best bed linens I've ever slept on and plenty of soft towels! Our kids kayaked and we canoed and even the rainy days we had were restful. Also it is so convenient to pontoon boat rental places, restaurants, Auburn and the wonderful town of Opelika (which has a great new ice cream shop in the renovated downtown).The owners are so gracious and kind, and I felt they truly want people to have a wonderful time at their house. Very highly recommended!

Felt like ‘home’ from the moment we opened the front door. The home is a beautifully decorated and maintained providing for a very cozy and warm feel. From the bed linens to the bath towels everything was clean and upscale. My wife and I loved the porch and the dock, overall a great place to relax taking in the sights of the lake. Our 3 children (6,8,10 yrs. old) swam and fished off the dock, rowed around the cove, roasted marshmallows at the fire pit and played ping pong in the basement. We truly did not need to bring anything to keep them fully occupied and the quiet cove provided for a ‘safe’ feeling during our stay. Location is also ideal for two of the better local restaurants and we rented a boat at the nearby marina, all very convenient. A hassle free renting experience. Highly Recommend. WAR EAGLE!

This property has it all: beautiful home, quiet lot and excellent view. The house is located close to a marina. We easily accommodated 4 twenty-somethings and 2 adults. We loved cooking out, fishing, boating, playing ping pong and relaxing on the porch. Bill and Marie are what really make this property special. They stayed in constant communication throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed! Fresh flowers, key lime pie, towel "animals", and soothing music greeted us upon our arrival!! Need I say more??!! We will visit again!!

I have rented many properties, both on and off the water, through VRBO for many years. Ninety nine percent have been satisfactory, and accurately represented on the VRBO website. This property, however, is in a class unto itself! All furnishings and other amenaties are upscale, comfortable, and presented with a cleaver mix of decorating skill as well as functionality. It was spotlessly clean and conveyed the sense of pride/professionalism the owners retain in their property. The lot is situated on a virtually private cove with great dock and covered boathouse, which facilitated the full scope of our boating interests from kayaks to 28' Sea Ray to aimlessly hanging out in tubes and rafts tied together. Our family especially enjoyed the super deck. The local area is notable; good restaurants one mile +- away, friendly local merchants, and all the other myriad intangibles that combine to make a vacation area "user friendly." Lastly, the owners are genuinely first class people. They went 'above and beyond' what is typically the norm for VRBO owners to help us on several occasions, which warrants our special thanks, as conveyed herewith! Thanks also for the homemade fudge topped with strawberries and fresh cut flowers awaiting our arrival.

This home is a beautifully maintained house on a quiet cove of Lake Martin. The house is situated in a location ideal for children to play off the dock without fear of passing boats. 2 Kayaks and 1 canoe were at the house for our enjoyment. The water is clear and perfect for rowing around the home. The house features nice linens, towels, and upscale appliances. Great sound system with speakers outside. We enjoyed listening to music while we played off the dock and grilled. Porch has a great swing! Boat landing to launch only about 5 minutes from house and very easy to get to. We had a young baby on this trip and can't stress enough how important a clean house was, and this home did not disappoint! Great place to relax, quiet and calm! Fresh Flowers greated us on arrival and the owners we easy to contact and reach for questions. Wonderful people to work with! Exactly what our family needed to relax in a pampered environment for the weekend!

Michael said: We chose the Greenhouse for a getaway to the Auburn area and were blown away by the home and setting! My wife and our three boys greatly enjoyed the home. My favorite activity was canoeing in Lake Martin and playing ping pong in the basement. The rooms are very well appointed and roomy and everything feels like new. The home was immaculately detail was left out. We also appreciated the tips for local eateries... we ate at Louie's and Niffer's and were not disappointed. Also, we appreciated the fire wood and had a very enjoyable marsh mellow roasting in the fire pit. The only negative to our stay was having to leave. We highly recommend this home away from home and hope to visit again.

Stacy said: I feel so fortunate to have found this little slice of heaven. This is exactly what you are looking for.. friendly and easy to work with owners, immaculate property inside and out, peace and quiet and a very easy 30 minute drive into Auburn. You're close enough to enjoy all the crazy football fun and then come home to a beautiful view and the sounds of nature. Bill and Marie are the perfect hosts and have thought of everything.. including leaving some yummy oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies for us to enjoy. We've rented through VRBO many times and have stayed in some good rentals, but this place is the bomb! I'm a little hesitant to even write this review, because I want this piece of paradise to always be available when I want it! However, this is a special place with special owners who have given you the opportunity to experience their cozy corner of the lake. Now quit looking for a better place and pack you bags. AND WAR EAGLE!

We recently spent three days at "The Greenhouse" visiting with our family who planned to stay for the week. We have stayed at many vacation rental homes and found this one to be as near to the top of our list as you can get. From the key lime pie waiting in the fridge to the fresh flowers on the table and a charming house with everything you could imagine for lake fun prepared for our pleasure, we were amazed. Bill and Marie certainly outdo others with their attention to detail, water toys (canoe, kayaks, floats), a ping pong table, TVS in living area as well as bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and that wonderful full length front porch with cozy comfortable chairs as well as a swing. Linens and toiletries were first class. I think the best thing is the location at the end of an inlet that feeds out into the lake. The children could swim at the pier, and we didn't have to worry about the lake traffic. Our skiers were able to ski out of the cove in protected waters before getting to the main lake - a plus especially for beginners. I mustn't fail to mention the covered boat dock or the large hammock hanging in the trees. The setting is perfect; the house is one of the most charming we've ever used, and we were made to feel so welcomed. We were so sorry that we could not stay for the entire week and definitely plan to come back. Thank you, Bill and Marie, for sharing your lake house and making our family time so special.

Thanks so much for your kind words. WE HOPE YOU PLAN TO VISIT US AGAIN....

Absolutely perfect!

Thanks to the Tidwell's for a amazing summer vacation. We arrived to a spotless fully furnished place. The view from the back porch as well as the master bedroom is breath taking. This experience was definitely some of the best hospitality you could get. Along with our top of the line house the local lakeside marina has boats and jet ski rentals that make for a exciting day on the water. I've been to many places in state and out and to date the greenhouse lake martin vacation is number 1! Enough said!!!!!

FIVE STAR ***** Review #8512699 A Little Piece of Heaven

Martha stayed 5/30/2014

Words cannot describe the "Greenhouse". Make your reservations and see for yourself. It is totally awesome. The "Greenhouse was immaculate and the view from the back porch was breath taking. Not to mention the beautiful live flower arrangement on the dining table and the delicious key lime pie waiting for you in the fridge. We were actually home away from home. We did a little fishing off of the dock and swam in the water. I was so impressed that there were Bibles that you could read and enjoy while there. We are thankful for people like the Tidwell's that will open their home and allow other's to experience such a wonderful vacation. You will not be disappointed. We will surely go back.

We just spent four wonderful relaxing days at the "Greenhouse". The photos do not do this place justice. The views of the lake are fantastic. We spent most of our time on the dock, fishing and swimming. The canoe and kayaks were a plus since we did not bring a boat with us. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable. You can tell the owners take pride in their home and it shows. The owners even left us a great pie in the fridge, and fresh flowers on the table. It is isolated enough where you are not on top of your neighbors, but close enough to local restaurants and grocery stores if you need something. Overall it was a great experience and we hope to return in the future. Thanks for everything Bill and Marie!

.My husband, daughter, and I joined our best friends and their son at "Greenhouse" for spring break. The kids are both young, so vacations are always a little stressful for us parents. The house was perfect! It was the most equipped house we have ever stayed at, and we have been renting from vrbo for years!!!! From linens and soap and a pack-and-play, to water toys for the lake, the Greenhouse has it all!! We loved the towel animals on the beds, the sweet card the owners left for us, and the kids (and parents) loved the brownies they left for us as well! This was one of the quietest, most relaxing vacations ANY of us has ever had. This house was huge, beautiful, and best of all, comfortable for all. We are already discussing our next trip!

Thanks to the Tidwells for a TERRIFIC family weekend at Auburn. A few highlights of our weekend: 1) LOCATION - people think Lake Martin and think 1.5hrs plus into Auburn. Greenhouse is about 25min from campus. Our daughter and her friends were able to come out and swim/layout/tube at the house Friday afternoon. We had parents out for a BBQ Friday evening. This setting is GREAT! 2) SETTING - Privacy hardly describes it. The deck having coffee in the morning, having a glass of wine at sunset on the dock, my dad and I bass fishing - this place has it all. You feel as though you're the only house on the lake. 3) HOME - Beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and everything you need. Also, Niffers is 5min away, the marina is 5min away (nice people-boat rental painless). Lastly, we use vrbo quite a bit, and like nicer places. The greenhouse is VERY CLEAN, NICE TOWELS, etc... It's very nice, and I can't imagine anyone being disappointed. IT'S AN AUBURN GAMEDAY must.

My first view of the house was in the passenger seat of our car when my husband unlocked the door, and I was in awe from there, and continued to be in awe as I walked through and saw the whole house, You felt like you were at home the minute you walked in, all the decor and little details that they added were above and beyond the pictures they have provided. We have used VRBO over 10 times in different states, Tennessee, Florida, Arizona and Hawaii, and this house has been the best we have stayed in. Bill & Marie were awesome hosts, and you usually do not get hosts, you get property managers, but they do so much....we had beautiful fresh flowers on the kitchen table, vegetables from their garden in the fridge for us. Also all the extras they let you use, trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, soap....have not found that in any of the places that we have rented before, and if they were there, it was just one of each. So we just unpacked, got some groceries and we were good to go. All the animals on the bed with the sunglasses on them, the little kids loved them!!! You felt so comfortable in the home from the moment you stepped in. Then you add in the porch and the grounds, dock and the lake......we had such a great time, visiting family and swimming, we rented jet skis, had the pontoon boat and ALL THE WATER TOYS that they provided saved us so much money. We wanted to stay an extra day just to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet after everyone left, because you feel so secluded out there. But we decided we will rent this "HOME" again and enjoy what Bill & Marie share with their rental family.....a slice of heaven. This is a home to getaway from it all, you feel like you are so far away. We ate at Oskars and Bob's Fine Food, they were both good. I would recommend this home to anyone, it was just perfect, clean and well-maintained, you have everything in the kitchen you need, Bill & Marie are so sweet too. We will be in touch again to borrow this beautiful home. THANKS BILL & MARIE FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY!!!!

The perfect lake house

If you are looking for absolute perfection, then this is the house for you. The house is absolutely gorgeous and located in its own little oasis of isolated heaven in the perfect cove on Lake Martin. We seriously couldn't ask for anything better. The golf was great. The kayaking was wonderful but more than anything else, the house was picture perfect and the owners couldn't have been any nicer to us. Thanks Bill and Marie!!

Our famiily traveled 13 hours to stay at the "Greenhouse" in Dadeville, AL while visiting our daughter at Auburn University. This is an eloquent, clean home. We felt as if we were staying at a 5-star resort but yet enjoyed the privacy and comfort of a home. The owners were so kind to check on us before arriving and were available for any questions we may have had during our stay. I would highly recommend this lovely home.

The Greenhouse - A Hidden Gem on Lake Martin

The three words that best describe the Greenhouse: "Location, location, location! We found the Greenhouse through an onlline search and count ourselves lucky to have unearthed such a hidden gem. We were looking for a private, serene spot on the lake to unwind and catch up with our children and that's just what the Greenhouse delivered. Bill and Marie met us upon arrival and made us feel right at home. We chose an off-season weekend and literally saw only one boat on the lake (other than the canoe, and two kayaks Bill and Marie provided for our stay.) We love the outdoors, so we spent a good bit of time on the lake and relaxing on the porch. We also enjoyed making smores over the fire pit (by the lake) and hanging out in the hammock. It's obvious the Tidwell's have thought of everything one might need during their stay. The only thing you'll need to pack is your food, although there are nice restaurants only minutes away. The basement is outfitted with exercise equipment,fishing rods, life vests, and floats for water recreation. There was more than enough room for our family of five and a friend. Clearly, I could go on and on about what we liked best. What we liked least... that we couldn't stay longer! Don't hesitate on this one.

Perfect Getaway!
WOW! What a perfect lake home! It is so much more than I even saw in the vrbo photos. The house was gorgeous, extremely well-kept, and so welcoming from the moment you step inside the front door. I truly enjoyed the first time drive down the long driveway amongst the trees. You can't see this house from the road. Secluded and private!! It was just my two kids and I, and we so enjoyed exploring. Next time I'll be there with by best buds, and I WILL be back. Thank you, Marie and Bill for the luxurious getaway I needed, and the hospitality. You're the best!!

A piece of Heaven on Earth

WOW..."The Greenhouse" is truly your very own piece of Heaven on Earth. You are truly blessed and we were blessed to have stayed in your gorgeous lake home!! The owners have thought of everything...loved their welcoming note as well as a beautiful arrangement of Fall leaves.. we especially enjoyed these since we don't have them in FL.. Loved sitting on the front porch drinking our morning coffee and enjoying the sounds of the lake. Enjoyed the canoe that was provided and went on three excursions around the lake. It was so enjoyable to "sit a spell" and relax and unwind. We will definitely be back again soon and would recommend this spectacular lake home to all that come to the area to enjoy.

We recommend Southern hospitality at its best at the "Greenhouse" and another "Sweet Home Alabama" will be part of our memories!

5/5***** Review the "Greenhouse"

Review Submitted: Day of Stay: August 7, 2011

What a wonderful home in which to unwind, relax, and have fun. We welcomed every morning with coffee on the dock and closed out the evening at the same place, talking about the fun we had on the lake that day. We brought our 4 waverunners and the dock accommodated them perfectly. The house setting in the cove was spectacular and was beyond peaceful. The house was beautiful inside and out and the owners have made it very welcoming with all the extras. We all agreed that this was the best vacation any of us have had in years... it was more than we expected and we recommend this home to anyone looking for peace, quiet, relaxation and fun on the lake. Thank you Marie and Bill!

Better than I could have imagined... This was, by far, the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The house was beautiful. The view was beautiful, the canoe was awesome...!!!!We had 4 children of various ages with us and all children and 3 adults were entertained and/or relaxed. Can't wait to go back!!

We had a wonderful time at the Greenhouse. We have 3 young children and this house was perfect! It is very private and has a very safe swimming slough for the kids. The house is beautiful on the inside and out.. the porch is lovely to relax and read on while overlooking the lake. We enjoyed dinner at Oskars and Niffers during our stay, but most loved cooking our meals at the Greenhouse! We've stayed at three different places over the years and this was our favorite!

The Greenhouse received Excellent Rating<\strong>
June 2011 - Wonderful Place and Owners

We stayed at the Greenhouse the week of June 18th. The owners, Marie and Bill could not be any nicer or accommadating. The house was immaculate and the pictures do not do it justice. Really nice house, huge master bedroom and wonderful outside porch. We enjoyed coffee in the mornings and evening, chats on the spacious porch overlooking the lake. The owners are thoughtfull in every detail. During the week, we celebrated Fathers Day, my husband's birthday and my own. Upon arrival the first thing we saw when we entered the house was a birthday banner and a card on the table. What a nice welcoming gesture that was the beginning of a great week. The house is beautifully decorated in great taste. The pier was great, and worked out very well for us to tie up 3 jet skis! I absolutely recomend the Greenhouse and hope to come again.

Me and my husband stayed at the Grenhouse on May 13th of this year. This place is Heaven on earth.The listing gave us very good directions and we were able to go right to the location without any problems.The pictures on the listing does not do this place justice. You have to see it in person to realize just how beautiful it really is. It is very spacious, very clean, very cozy and very well maintained inside and out. We did not want to leave. The owners went above and beyond to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this lakehouse to anyone!!!!!!! IT IS A WONDREFUL RETREAT. Auburn is only about a twenty minute drive and we went shopping after leaving, very convenient.

This is a beautiful, well appointed and well kept home on a quiet cove on the lake. (Clean, amenities and extras provided.) Our favorite "room" was the large porch overlooking the water. The owners provided sample menus from nearby restaurants and driving directions to local points of interest. Perfect lodging choice for a family or several couples looking for a prime lake locale. Nice dock and there's a marina nearby. Owners were pleasant to deal with and we will definitely call for reservations when looking for lodging in the Dadeville/Auburn/Lake Martin area in the future.

After researching to find a place , we decided on "the green house". Never would we believe that it would be much better than the pictures showed!!!! the views were great and everything was clean and there were so many personal touches like fresh flowers on the dining room table when we arrived. the owners were more than helpful, they were great and made you fill like this was your house. For example: since we were not familiar with the area, we called the owners for advice on renting a boat and they called us back with all the information and called the marina and helped us make the arrangements. They recommended several restaurants and the two we chose were very good and within a mile or two. (OSKARS AND NIffERS) this house has most anything you need from a bar-b-que grill to a great deck to enjoy the peace, quiet, and beauty of the place itself. if you want above average this is the place for you!!! Kenny and Elaine

Great Weekend!!!

This was the most enjoyable stay and booking I have every experienced on VRBO. Every detail was taken care of by the owner. It is an unbelievably beautiful place. The photos , although accurate in every detail, do NOT do the property justice. Photo's simply can not capture this property's value. Very secluded, beautiful view, private, quiet, and an exceptionaly clean home. It is very easy to find and the location is convienent to restaurants and other necessities. My security deposit was returned to me promptly after check out (<36 hours) with a nice personal note of thanks. All of my quests were quite impressed with the owners detailed directions to local destinations, restauraunt suggestions, and even a nice welcome card with best wishes. All were awaiting our arrival on the kitchen counter. I can not say enough about the owners helpfulness and extra effort taken to make our stay enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their time and we will hopefully be able to book another stay in the future. I recommend HIGHLY this property. This owner knows how to take care of her clients.

Fantastic Lakehouse!

We stayed at this fabulous lake home in May. The owners have done a superb job at making it a home away from home. We could not have felt more welcome. It was close enough to Auburn that we went there for dinner and movie and then back to the lake house to enjoy the summer sounds from the amazing porch. The house is quiet and private and each room is clean and comfortable. It is also close to several delicious local restaurants and boutique shopping in Dadeville. It is the perfect family get a way, Auburn football hangout, or romantic roundezvous home. You will definitely want to go again and again. And WAR EAGLE!!!
