News & Events


The lake is up, things are greening up and Kowaliga Restaurant is gearing up for spring and summer in April!! On Sundays, beginning April 3, Kowaliga will be open for lunch at 10am and dinner 5-9pm. Sunday evening will feature $8 Burger Night, featuring five different burgers to choose from, plus oysters while they last.


At Russell Marine, the excitement is building as this event marks the kick-off of the summer boating season for us. Come enjoy a fun day in the sun with the whole family, and maybe win some exciting prizes, too.


What sort of value can you put on experience? A better question might be, if you are going to make the sizable investment in a new lake home, who should you trust? We think you will find the answer to both questions in this new Ridge home being built by Derryl Thomas.


Spring is here, and folks are returning to the lake and the sunshine. This is the time of year we open our doors wider and welcome our friends and guests back to Russell Lands On Lake Martin. Many in our family of businesses adjust their hours for springtime.
