QUIET LAKEFRONT RETREAT, LAKE WEDOWEE, FAMILY FRIENDLY

Wedowee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Just placed back on VRBO for rental, after much interest from previous guests and the owners' realization that they could not get away as often as they had hoped....

Escape the chaos of everyday life in our spacious, 5BR/3BA lakefront retreat. Our beautiful, family-friendly home is located in a quiet cove on the South end of Lake Wedowee where the waterways are open and uncrowded, even on the busiest of holidays. The home’s layout, outdoors and in, is perfect for a large family, or two to three families wanting thier own living spaces to create lasting vacation memories.

You and your guests will savor the endless ways to relax off of our deep-water docks. Jump off the stationary dock to splash those sunbathing on the large, uncovered floating dock, or fish for catfish, bream, bass and crappie. Feed the turtles with left-over bread from your picnic lunch. Take off in your boat or jet-ski to speed along the open water or troll along multiple inlets for more fishing opportunities. Explore near-by coves in our kayak, or simply float in the calm water off our docks without the threat of being tossed around on the busier areas of the lake.

If you want to escape the heat and sun, relax in the porch swing on one of our covered porches while watching your guests have fun near the water. Curl up for an afternoon nap in our great room with the sun shining in and trees swaying outside the large, open windows. Or make a batch of homemade ice cream in our electric ice cream churn in the shade on the back porch.

Within 15-20 minutes, you will find a multitude of activities to entertain you. Explore charming antique shops, rent movies to enjoy after dinner, pick up last minute items at the local grocery, drug or dollar stores. If you are tired of cooking for the crowd, let someone else prepare your next meal as takeout from Mexican food to pizzas, Southern cuisine to coffee shop items. Drive a little further to Mount Cheaha for hiking nature trails and share a meal in their mountain top lodge while watching a gorgeous sunset. Anniston, AL is about an hour away with a mall, book stores, movie theater, and multiple dining choices for a day trip. Several wineries are also with-in driving distance for another day trip opportunity.

At the end of the day, you will find plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The walk-out basement, which opens onto a covered deck overlooking the lake, provides a large living/game area with Wii entertainment system and Ping-Pong table. This level also contains two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with twin/double bunk) and full bathroom. Going up the stairs to the second and main floor, you will find dining areas, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, full bath with walk-in shower and master bedroom (with private access to the bathroom), and great room with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, large screen TV/DVD/DVR and iHome stereo system opening onto large open deck with outdoor dining areas. Off the kitchen, there is a covered porch with a large stainless steel gas grill and seating area convenient for unloading groceries, sipping cold drinks while grilling dinner, storing coolers, and making homemade ice cream. From the wide staircase leading from the great room to the top level, you can access both upstairs bedrooms (one queen, one twin bunk with extra mattress) which have mirrored vanities in each bedroom for extra privacy as well as a full bath off the balcony connecting the two rooms.

Fishing is great here at Lake Wedowee! The lake is adverstised as one of Alabama's cleanest and best fishing lakes. Golfing is also convenient in Roanoke, a 20 minute trip, as well as other golf courses within an hour drive. There are multiple Antique shops in downtown Wedowee for lazy, afternoon browsing and Talladega, Auburn and University of Alabama are a short drive away on NASCAR/football weekends.

Owners are located an hour away from lake house property and will be accessible to you during your stay should you need anything! We hope that you will return year after year and enjoy our retreat as much as we do!

Keywords: Family-friendly, 5 bedroom, Lakefront, three story home, less than 50 steps to the water and three docks/lakeside decks, child-friendly furniture, fully furnished kitchen, two living areas, three decks, life vests/fishing gear included

About Chloe Harden

My husband and I both have busy schedules and enjoy the serenity of Lake Wedowee. We enjoy both entertaining other famlies at the lake and also spending much needed family time making memories. We live about an hour away from our lake house, so we are very accessible to our renters and will be available to assist in any way.

Chloe Harden purchased this house in 2007

Why Chloe Harden chose Wedowee

We built this lake house as a retreat from every day life and as a place to relax with our friends and family. We both grew up spending summers on Lake Wedowee and wanted those memories for our children as well.

What makes this house unique

Lake Wedowee is a very convenient drive from Birmingham, AL and Atlanta, GA. There are endless things to do and enjoy, no matter how long your stay. Our favorite things to do at the lake: hearing children squeal with delight when they jump off our stationary dock and fall 6-8 feet into the water (20 feet deep off the end of our dock), sipping hot coffee on cool mornings before any 'human' noises can be heard, running in near-by neighborhoods before the heat of the day while the kids ride their bicycles, memories of proud children holding up 2 pound fish caught off the dock with plans for great dinner feasts....

Nice clean house with lots of sleeping room for families and children. The kitchen was very well stocked with large pots/pans and dishes. My grandchildren loved the toys and books that were there. Great cove with good swimming around the dock and good shade in the afternoon. Hiking up the multiple steps to the dock gives you a great workout but was not a problem.

Quiet, cozy, and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this family-friendly lake house for a few days with 2 other small families and had a wonderful time! The house is very roomy, but not too big and overdone. The house is clean and filled with anything you might need or want! We bought groceries and cooked all meals at the house, making for a very low-key vacation at the lake. The lake is calm and quiet and perfect for swimming off the dock with the kids! There are multiple places to just sit and enjoy the lakefront and views. I can't wait until we go back next summer!!

Meyers Family Return Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a return stay for a fall family get together. The directions to the home were very helpful and accurate. Our family enjoys sharing our favorite family recipes and this kitchen was well equipped to meet all of our needs. We visited several of the local wineries in the Birmingham area and enjoyed the ride as well as the tasting. This was a beautiful time of the year to visit as the leaves were changing. The use of the kayak offers an up close and personal view around the lake. I would recommend this home to others and look forward to our stay next year.

Great house

  • 4 of 5
We had a good stay. Home was very clean. It rained & was actually cold over the weekend. But fortunately there were many things to do inside. The children (5,6,7, &10) especially enjoyed the air hockey, ping pong & Wii games! And parents enjoyed the movie channels. The steps to a nice dock are a little steep & a few need repair, but other than being out of shape, we were able to get up & down. It would be great if all steps were repaired like bottom half. We had an infant with us so rocking chair would have been nice however, there was plenty of comfortable seating. Kitchen had most everything we needed. We did have to take a crock pot & mixer. It was a challenge not having phone service (AT&T). We had MiFi so managed by texts/email. Suggestion we all agreed on...trim trees so you can see lake, and those on dock, better while enjoying the swing.
The owner was great & responded promptly to any questions.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We actually have planned to complete stairs(remove old cross ties and replace with wooden stairs/railings) and have budgeted for that to happen this Fall while traffic is down!

A nice stay on the lake

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this very clean and comfortable home. We had three families and multiple aged children. All had a great time at the lake fishing, swimming, and tubing. During down time, we all enjoyed playing ping pong, reading, and playing the Wii. The photos are accurate; however, you can't really tell from the photos how steep it is down to the lake from the house. The one photo looking down at the dock is actually down a ways from the house on a deck. My mother-in-law didn't make it down to the dock even once because she was afraid of walking up and down the stairs. For everyone else, it was fine. We had a wonderful time and Chloe was very responsive when we had questions. Definitely would recommend.

Flat Rock State Park is located 15 minutes away by water for the little ones that want to put their toes in the sand and wade on the shore in more sandy soil; great for a lunchtime picnic trip.
