Our family lives in Sandy Springs, GA and consists of my wife, our 3 children and a dog. We love our time at Lake Wedowee, there is something for everyone...whether it's wakeboarding, tubing, swimming, sliding down the slide, or going to a local rodeo, everyone has fun.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Lake Wedowee is clean and uncrowded, perfect for boating and swimming. The local community is charming, always hosting fairs, farmer's markets, rodeos and other events, there is always something new to do. The location is convenient, less than 2 hours away from our home in Atlanta.

Our lake house is designed for families...built on a quiet bay for playing in the water around the dock without boat traffic, constructed only 15 feet off the water for convenience to the house, added to the dock is a 2 story slide for entertainment, and being located next to the largest open water Lake Wedowee offers makes it perfect for boating and jet skiing.

GREAT TIME AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
This was yet another peaceful and relaxing vacation. Weather was good and the water was perfect! We had the placed filled to the max and had space for everyone. We had several Ping Pong tournaments, and Wii Bowling and Boxing were a big hit this time around. Not sure who had more fun the kids or the “Big” kids.
Be ready to climb stairs as there are quite a few and be ready to get wet. All the days spend on a raft or boat and nights by the fire. Jeff the owner is quick to respond with any questions or concerns.

GRANDMA AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
I and my two daughters and their families stayed the last week in June 2012 thru 7/4. Had great weather that was very hot but the water was great. Did this place last year and loved it then too. With the 7 kids we had 13 people and had plenty of room for all. This home is all it is billed to be clean and well maintained. Great place for families with children and Grandma had a shaded place on the dock to watch all the fun and swim a little too. Great kitchen we ate in all week, with menus planned in advance. We came to the lake to be at the lake - spend time on our boat and jet skis and just play by the dock. We did various games in the evening including one round of Bunco which I bought the prizes for, so much fun when we are all together. Will probably do this same place again next year.

THE BEST PLACE TO STAY ON WEDOWEE

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this review a bit late, but the sheer fact that I am taking the time to do this, even 4 months after my stay should speak volumes of this place! First, I should start by saying that the pictures on this site, although beautiful, do not to justice to how wonderful this home truly is! The house is nestled off of a gravel road, with a good bit of distance from neighbors, which gives you the feeling of having the lake all to yourself! The home is decorated beautifully, but is still family friendly; it is a spacious home but still provides you with the cozy lake house feeling. We went on this trip with several other adults, and there was plenty of room so we could have separate time but also come together! The kitchen is beautiful and was where we spent the majority of our evenings! It opens onto a sun room and back deck which is perfect for summer nights! On the lower level you find the game room and 2 bedrooms, which provide the perfect "escape" for children. Although we did not bring children on this trip, I could see kids wanting to hang out do here during a family vacation. When you walk out of the lower level you find another excellent space to entertain and spend time outside grilling up the perfect meal. The patio was gorgeous and provided excellent views of the lake!
Although the house was beautiful, the highlight of the trip for our group was the boat house and sun deck. We spent all of our days out here catching rays and just floating in the water! The slide (yes, even for a group of adults) was a blast! We brought a boat, and the boat house provided the perfect place for us to tie up the boat when we were not using it. Overall, we completely enjoyed ourselves and hated to leave on Sunday to return to work on Monday! This house is the perfect getaway for families with children or for a couples trip to have some childlike fun of your own! We will definitely be returning again. A BIG thank you to Jeff and his family for their hospitality and letting folks stay in their home!

PAT FROM BATON ROUGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at the Wedowee Lakeside Getaway. It was so relaxing with outstanding lake views. We brought our pontoon boat, which we launched from the nearby landing. We really enjoyed the cruising around the beautiful, quiet lake as well as fishing. We definately would love to come back. It is truly a great place for all ages and large groups, but we also found it to be a great getaway for just a couple who want to "stop and smell the roses".

THREE FAMILY FUN

  • 5 of 5
We recently had three families stay at the Lakeside Getaway and EVERYONE had a terrific time. The house was beautiful but much of our time was in the water. We spent endless hours jumping off the dock and going down the slide. Also, the location of the dock made it easy to jet ski and boat all day long. The water was warm and clean with plenty of nearby coves to explore and enjoy. Also, the lake never felt crowded even on Saturday. Lastly, the neighborhood boat ramp was literally a stones throw away and made it very easy to get the boat/jet ski in and out of the lake. All three families agreed that we need to come back every year!!!
