We are happy to announce that version 2.0 of the Russell Lands mobile app now includes nearly 65 miles of paddling routes skimming past 130 miles of beautiful Lake Martin shoreline. Comprised of 17 paddling routes and six put-in/take-out points, we call the network the Blueway.
Make sure you bring the entire family down to Russell Crossroads for a morning filled with FUN! The Fall Family Festival is also a learning experience. We will have our working grist mill and a blacksmith in the Blacksmith Shop. So, make plans to be there! Yes, there is a charge, but it’s only $25 per family.
Two freshly completed lake homes in Willow Glynn will provide the setting for their spook-a-licous unveiling. Constructed by one of Russell Lands On Lake Martin’s most prolific builders, Bob Harris of RLH Construction, “The Abby” and the “Riverside Cottage” will be open for your personal inspection. Chef Chris Doggett of Willow Point Golf & Country Club will be creating tasty bites and refreshments. Perhaps one of these b00-tiful new lake homes will cast a spell on you, and you’ll make it your own.
Just as the lake level rises and falls with the seasons, the forests take on their fiery fall cloak and the sunsets sneak in a little earlier, so must the businesses at Russell Lands On Lake Martin adjust their hours for the not-so-busy season. But rest assured, our doors are open, and we’re here to greet you warmly!
The Russell Lands Fall Family Festival will be here before we know it, and it promises to be bigger and better this year! As always, the event’s focus is on the kids! With that in mind, we will open up the Pumpkin Patch, and have pumpkin carving and decorating, a real firetruck for the kids to climb in and on, horseback rides and, of course, arts and crafts. This year, we are adding a few new things!
To show our support for the pivotal role that education and high school athletics play in our local community, Russell Do it Center commissioned Corey Worden of Beneath the Bark Chainsaw Carvings to carve something for us that we hope will be a symbol of our continued support for Benjamin Russell High School for years to come.
Start off your Saturday with two very popular fitness classes on the Town Green. Breathe in the fresh morning air and find your center. Then, maybe indulge in the best breakfast at Lake Martin at Catherine’s Market before letting Naturalist Marianne Hudson “school” us on how critters are classified. You’ll be home in time for college football!
The forecast is calling for a beautiful evening at Russell Crossroads this Friday. What better way to unwind after a busy week than to take in a wildlife presentation with Naturalist Marianne Hudson and kick back in the cool grass of the Town Green with Jonathan Bloom? Come relax and enjoy!
What started out as an experiment with free yoga classes on the Town Green a few years ago has grown in popularity and has expanded with Pilates classes. These popular activities have been extended through September. Come out and enjoy the fall weather!
