Romantic Lake Martin: Where to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the Lake
Oh Lake Martin, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. We love your waters’ depths and your shorelines’ beaches. We love your sweeping views and your local businesses. We love your water sports and your quiet coves. We love everything about our lake. While the previous lines aren’t exactly the words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, we do think she was onto something when she professed her feelings in Sonnet 43. Like Browning felt about her love, we truly adore Lake Martin and all it has to offer its residents. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d share some of our favorite romantic spots nearby. Whether you’re making a reservation or keeping it casual this Valentine’s Day, there’s something for you below.
For the new couple, The Waverly Local:
There’s nothing quite like the excitement of a new relationship. Capitalize on keeping the honeymoon phase alive by heading to The Waverly Local, Waverly’s newest restaurant concept. Housed in a former Ford dealership, the restaurant dishes seasonal southern food amid mid-century modern design. With local delicacies like bacon-wrapped Wickle’s Okra and several Gulf catches, you (and your date!) are sure to be impressed.
For a romantic spot, SpringHouse:
There are few places near Lake Martin that deliver the cuisine and ambiance that SpringHouse does. Led by Chef Rob McDaniel, SpringHouse offers fantastic cuisine and casual elegance. The restaurant is a true farm-to-table experience for foodies while capturing gorgeous views of area land for romantics. Snag a table by the kitchen to watch the chefs at work, or steal a spot in a quiet corner to settle into bliss. No matter where you’re seated, you’ll be in for a treat.
For keeping it elegant yet casual, Copper’s Grill:
It’s no secret that Copper’s Grill at Stillwaters is one of our favorite local haunts. We love it anytime of year for their live music, and of course, their awesome food. This Valentine’s Day, Copper’s is offering a four-course menu featuring filet and double chocolate cake. Talk about delicious! Be sure to make your reservations ahead of time. You might see us there!
For family fun, Kowaliga:
After a day on the lake, there’s not a better spot than Kowaliga. If you’re looking for a spot for Valentine’s Day fun for the entire family, head to this lakefront eatery. You can pull your boat right up to its shore, or you can get there by car. No matter what you choose, there’s something there for the whole clan. Stay tuned to their Facebook page for specials, and let us know if you give it a try.
