News & Events


An old adage in real estate is, “If a view is important, then make it a big water view!” We have been developing lakefront property for a long time. In that time, we have sold a number of homesites with big views, but none better than our newest collection of Ridge lots. This selection tops them all. You can literally see for miles!


The lake is full, the days are longer, the kids are out of school and it is time to celebrate summer! This summer, there is no shortage of things to do on Lake Martin! Russell Marine will be in full swing during the month of June with wakeboard clinics, slalom tournaments, celebrations and more.


Everywhere we look, we see green. Summertime at Russell Lands On Lake Martin is officially here! This month, Naturalist Marianne will highlight those staying cool in the Russell Forest and focuses her presentations on mammals. Yes, you're one, too!


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.
