  • Russell Lands

    Russell Lands is the largest recreational developer in Alabama, and over more than 35 years has created the flagship community on Lake Martin — Russell Lands On Lake Martin. But the company is also one of uncommon vision, diversity and commitment to community — whose endeavors go beyond creating fine lake homes and neighborhoods.

    Willow Point Golf and Country Club is one of the most revered private clubs in Alabama due to Russell Lands' careful management. Russell Crossroads is the new central town hub of its impressive 25,000-acre land holdings. Russell Marine offers boating enthusiasts world-class sales and service through four Lake Martin locations and has ranked in the Top 100 Boat Dealers in North America since 2007.

    Russell Do-It and Home Décor Centers make it easier for homeowners to build and personalize the homes in which they live. In 1998, Russell Lands constructed the Lake Martin Amphitheater - a tremendous venue for celebrating culture and the creative arts. And the company continues to serve the community through Children's Harbor - the not-for-profit organization created by Russell Lands Chairman and CEO Ben Russell - whose mission is to strengthen children and families through a variety of programs, services and good works.

    Russell Crossroads

    Russell Crossroads is a new town center located in the heart of Russell Lands' 25,000 acres on Lake Martin and is the hub of an extensive system of scenic trails in Russell Forest. Currently under development, Russell Crossroads is emerging as the central commercial "village" for the Russell Lands' communities.

    The initial phase includes The Discovery Center, Catherine's Market, SpringHouse restaurant and The Stables, all designed in period architecture typically found in rural southern towns in the 1920s. Connected by sidewalks to promote "walkability" of the town, building sites provide stunning views of the surrounding meadows, forest and distant Lake Martin.

    Welcome to a dining experience like no other on Lake Martin. Rising out of the hilltop, SpringHouse treats diners to a local cuisine served in rustic, casual elegance. As guests enter and pass the hearth, they will notice rustic stone, rough-hewn beams and a magnificent open kitchen with a wood-fired oven.

    The upstairs Promontory Bar and dining area provides adults a place to relax and gather. Patios with working fireplaces flank the main dining room and upstairs bar. For special events, guests are invited to reserve the Well House—a private 12-seat dining room connected to the restaurant by an underground tunnel. The room features a private garden for cocktails and receptions, a panoramic vista of The Stables, pastures and surrounding woodland.
