Overview

Wedowee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Cozy cabin on beautiful Lake Wedowee that makes you feel like you are in the mountains with its beautiful view. Located in the southern foothills of the Appalachian mountain chain, Lake Wedowee is rated as one of cleanest lakes in Alabama. With over 270 miles of shore line, Lake Wedowee offers an abundance of outdoor activities. It is a fisherman's paradise with plenty of great crappie and bass fishing spots. Water enthusiasts will enjoy boating activities such as water skiing, wake boarding, tubing and jet skiing. Lake Wedowee is formed by three rivers, the Big Tallaposa, Little Tallaposa, and Wedowee Creek. All flow though rural farm land and small municipalities. Nearby is the quaint town of Wedowee, which flows with warmth and southern hospitality.

Our cabin is one of Southern Living's most popular floor plans. The cabin sleeps up to seven guests comfortably. The main level bedroom has a queen size bed. The bed in the downstairs bedroom is full sized and was hand made over 100 years ago in the Smoky Mountains .The loft has three twin beds.The main level living area boasts a floor to ceiling stone gas log fireplace that keeps you warm and comfy on cool nights. There is a large TV with DVD / CD player along with DVD's and board games located in the entertainment center.

The downstairs offers more living space with a TV/VCR/DVD player. This is a great place for the kids to escape and relax, and they can also enjoy a game on the foosball table. The cabin comes with a fully stocked kitchen that includes a microwave, stove / oven, toaster oven, food processor, blender, full array of pots / pans, many spices,and a refrigerator with icemaker. We have cooked several Thankgiving meals and held many dinner gatherings with ease.

One of the our favorite places to gather is on the large screened-in porch that offers a panoramic view of Lake Wedowee. It is a prime place to relax, read a book, cook dinner on the gas grill, and eat with family and friends. Our family has many special memories of birthday parties, family gatherings and weekends with friends while spending time here.

We have 200 feet of shoreline that offers year-round water. There is a single-slip, floating, covered boat dock. Our children love fishing from the dock at night. Enjoy the warm days swimming ,skiing, boating, or floating on a raft. Feel free to take a relaxing cruise in our two person touring kayak. This a great way to tour the shoreline and possibly see wildlife such as deer, fox, wild turkey, loons, mallard ducks and possibly a sighting of an american bald eagle.

About Greg Heath

My wife and I purchased our lake lot in 1999.

We partially cleared the lot and camped there with our three daughters for several years. The cabin was built in 2004, and we have enjoyed it year-round. We have found that, due to all of our children's activities, we are not able to get to the lake as often as we would like. By renting our cabin, our guests can enjoy Lake Wedowee as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Our lake cabin is a great place to relax and get away from the stress of everyday life. Whether you enjoy fishing, water skiing, or reading a book on the screened porch, there is never a bad day on Lake Wedowee. Be sure to take advantage of star gazing on clear nights. Without the glare of city lights, the night sky glistens with an amazing array of stars. Our cabin is a short distance from the town of Wedowee, where you will find antique shops, grocery stores and several locally owned resturants. The marina is also a short boat ride away and has a restaurant that you can reach by water. Our cabin is 30 minutes away from Cheaha Mountain State Park, which is the highest point in Alabama and has great opportunities for hiking and mountain biking. We are located 45 minutes from Talladega Motor Speedway which makes this a great place to stay on race weekends. We are located approximately 1.5 hours from both Birmingham and Atlanta, which makes it convenient for day trips to these areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great relaxing weekend at Lake Wedowee. The cabin was great and had eveything we needed. We really enjoyed the views of the lake from the back porch. The crappie fishing is great and weather was perfect. Thank you for letting us use your cabin.We can't wait to go back.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Property had just the right amenities for a most comfortable stay. Outstanding rate for what the property offered. We were very comfortable and as fishermen we didn't need many comforts. The steps to the boat dock can be strenuous but now I can fit into that new Bass Pro Shop speedo I bought in the winter. We had a great visit and the owner's very personable which made preparations much simpler. Planning to go back soon since this is my favorite lake.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the cabin! It was cozy, clean and beautifully decorated (not overboard lake theme).. The lake was tranquil with deep, clean water. The owners were very easy to work with and made sure we had everything we could need ( fully equipped kitchen, soap in bathrooms, etc). We have already made plans to go back!

A Great Kickoff to Summer!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin Memorial Day weekend and absolutely loved it! The owners were wonderful, very helpful, and made sure that we had everything we needed for a perfect weekend. The cabin was more than big enough for our family of 4 and could easily have accommodated a couple of more people! I loved sitting in the "swinging chair" on the back balcony and watching the boats drive by on the lake. At night we'd have dinner in the screened in porch and just hang out, listen to music and play games. The basement was a perfect spot for the kids, but honestly they didn't spend too much time in it because they were on the water most of the weekend. It was great though for when they wanted to cool off and play some games.

The cabin was at a very convenient location! It was close enough to town, so that I didn't mind running to the grocery store when we needed to replenish a few things. I think it was maybe a 10-15 minute drive. And the same for driving the boat to the marina; not far at all.

I know that I've left off many wonderful points about the cabin, but really I can't say enough good things about this place. The cabin was wonderful, it was easy to get to, the location was nice, and working with owners was great. They have a wonderful lake cabin and I'm thrilled that we were able to enjoy it. Can't wait to return!

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cabin located above the lake with a view. Enjoyed the fresh air and atmosphere during my stay while I recharged my batteries before coming home. Loved the dock and it's ability to keep my boat dry while it poured down rain through the night. Unfortunately, the weather shut down the bite and the fish didn't cooperate. Still, the hominess of the cabin was so peaceful and quiet. Can't wait to get back again.
