Whether you're enjoying the stunning views or playing in the water, this is a vacation home with something for everyone! , This 4 BR, 3B, house is located on a year 'round, deep water point and sits atop 2 gently sloped lots with views of the Little Tallapoosa and the mouth of Wedowee Creek.

Over 600 ft. of water frontage and 2 separate docks are yours to enjoy. One oversized dock is for sunning, swimming, has a boat slip, and boat tie-ups. A smaller covered dock houses our personal boat and watercraft (use of owners watercraft not included in the rental program) and serves as a great fishing spot or swimming point.

From the screened porch, extending the entire length of the house is a large covered porch with a 2 story vaulted ceiling. This outdoor living area was an addition in 2005 and is everyone's favorite sitting/gathering spot. A view thru the trees down the mouth of the Little Tallapoosa river makes you feel like you are in the mountains! Settle back in the Adirondack chairs sipping a cool drink and the take in the view or recline under the quiet hum of ceiling fans and have a peaceful nap.

My husband and I purchased 3 lake lots on beautiful Lake Wedowee in 1995. We built the house in '97 using a modified Southern Living house plan, 'Nautical Cottage'. We both have large extended families and we wanted a place that would accommodate a crowd. We now co-own the house/lots with another family and have 6 children between us ranging in ages 25-17 yrs. .We have been vacationing here for years , enjoying the house all year long - as fun as it is during the summer months its a great get away during the 'off season', as well as in the quiet months of the winter. Did I mention the many Thanksgivings we have celebrated here!) As much as we love lake living, we found that activities kept us from using the home as much as we wanted. By renting the house, our guests can enjoy the lake as much as we do

Dana Reeve purchased this house in 1997

Lake Wedowee is located in the southern foothills of the Apppalachian mountain chain. It is rated as one of the cleanest lakes in Alabama. With over 270 miles of shoreline, Lake Wedowee offers an abundance of outdoor activities. Our family loves the water and my husband is an avid fisherman. it is a great place to wet a line for crappie, bass, brim or catfish

FAVORITE THINGS TO DO AT LAKE WEDOWEE...meeting the morning with coffee on the porch...watching my husband trolling thru the water fishing @ sun-up...a trail run along the quiet paths in our neighborhood -ending with a jump into the lake...a group of children catching fish off the dock...the smell of breakfast...'noodling'off our dock all afternoon... seeing the dogs enjoy the lake experience...a group swim across the cove to jump off Mr. Warren's double decker dock...a nap in the hammock listening to water lapping against the shore line...exploring quiet coves in the kayak...open water swim to the end of our cove...watching little ones play boating games in their private shallow swimming area btw the docks...reading/napping on the covered porch listening to the hum of the fan...family games during a rain storm under the shelter of the screened porch...friends driving by on theirs boats and stopping to sit a spell and visit...finding the best rope swing on the lake... too many cooks in the kitchen or at the grill preparing a meal with good drinks and great music... ALL sitting down to share a meal in the great outdoors...family dance parties...trips to the Marina for bait and treats...Worship on the Water at Lakeside..Not missing church by having our own Sunday School lesson on the deck with listeners completely attentive so they will be chosen first to TUBE ...fireworks from the dock...picking blueberries outside my kitchen window in July...watching the sunset flying squirrel show... candlelight and conversation...a full moon illuminating the inside of the house...enjoying a break from our hectic life with family and friends, surrounded by God's perfect natural world... falling into bed exhausted..AND...waking up the next day TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN...INFINITE JOY!!

GREAT WEEKEND AT THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the lake house and boating on the lake. The house was very clean and had everything we needed.

Husband had refinished his childhood 1969 Boston Whaler and got to zip it around lake and pull the kids on skis and knee boards.

Great memories!

LOVED THE VIEW

  • 4 of 5
Our extended family (3 siblings + families) enjoyed our visit to the lake! Trip highlights included owl watching, fishing, beautiful weather and great views.....and an exciting lizard chase thru the kitchen (we won)! The house is quite comfortable except the layout of the bedrooms didn't quite fit our mostly adult family's need for privacy. We also found the downstairs bathroom to be unusable. Also some of the skillets and pans could use a bit of an update! On the positive side we loved having the ice maker!! And there are plenty of towels! Shutdown procedure is simple and gives you plenty of time to pack up and get out without feeling too rushed. Thanks too for being pet friendly. We loved having our little dog with us.....he particularly enjoyed squirrel watching! Most lots are steep at lake Wedowee but getting down to the water is a very doable hike for the 55+ crowd. Thanks for allowing us into your home!!

FANTASTIC FAMILY VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home with family friends for a weekend and were delighted with our experience. The property was well-kept and the lake was beautiful. The kids (ages ranging from 10-17) especially had a blast with the canoe and kayaks. They loved having their own area in the basement to watch movies and play games. The screened in porch was an enjoyable place to eat dinner and relax. There is plenty of space outside for other activities, including nice roads for taking walks. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone seeking a vacation spot that is both adult and child friendly.

LAKE WEDOWEE

  • 2 of 5
Could be cleaner; furniture is stained. Refrigerator shelf was broken when we got there, my husband spent the first 20 mins there, fixing the shelf. Lots of ants on the property and grounds. We had an infestation in all of our cars. Dock and screened porch were great! I would not recommend this property because of the cleanliness.

Owner's Response: This is a family friendly home which caters to groups of 10-14. The furnishings are comfortable, and worn. Regarding the broken refrigerator shelf, the owners do an inspection before every guest arrives. We were unaware of the broken shelf but had we been notified our 24/7 repair man would have tended to the issue. This home is located on several acres of densely wooded property. We see crickets, frogs, lizards, spiders and ants. We professionally treat the inside and outside grounds several times per year. Ants follow food and if these guests had ants in their car perhaps they also had food in their car and food lying out for the ants to eat.

FAMILY LAKE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful, well maintained house, which worked perfectly for our party of 15 (including older teenagers and young children) and even the family Labrador. Everyone had plenty of space to sleep comfortably at night and spread out during the day, with the two porches being a huge plus. The docks and kayaks were great fun, and the lake was lovely and amazingly warm. The owners were very organized and had plenty of information prepared to send to renters which was helpful. I would definitely rent this property again next year.
