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!
