Centre Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

The Perfect Retreat is located in Centre, Alabama (Cherokee County) on beautiful Weiss Lake. The property offers 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a full kitchen, and on-site laundry. The back door opens to a large deck overlooking a shady hillside, and a stairway surrounded by nature leads you down to the waterfront. The large T-style pier can accommodate any type of vessel and the state docks are 'just around the bend', so bring your fishing boat, the family friendly pontoon boat, or jet skis for the kids!

In addition to Weiss Lake, the surrounding area offers many activities/attractions including Little River Canyon, Terrapin Creek, Noccalula Falls, Desoto State Park, Cheaha State Park, Talladega National Forest, and the Chief Ladiga Trail...just to name a few.

We are so thankful for being allowed to have this experience. The rental was just enough room for my family of three. It was clean, well stocked with everything that we needed & was conveniently located near a grocery store & Walmart.

The view was priceless. Our daughter enjoyed it so much that she didn't want to leave. She also challenged us to a race to and from the dock daily & that was some serious exercise (Yay!!).

I have only one critique. The dock needs seating or you can bring your own.

Mom vacation tip: You can bring paper plates, plastic forks, spoons, knives and cups for easy cleanup.

Ms. Martha made the experience well worth the trip and she addressed any concerns/questions that I had quickly.

Everything is wonderful about this adorable and cottage! The décor oozes charm, every inch is spotless, the dock and lake are blissful, and as a result, my heart and soul yearn to return! Thank you for two days of heaven!

Clean, Quiet, Adorable, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a nice stay for two nights at this lake house. Decor was adorable. The cottage was very clean. A few negatives that might deter us from renting again: Stairs to dock can be a challenge; but moreover getting in and out of lake was very difficult off the dock (i.e.,the ladder needs more steps) to shallow to jump in and lakeside bedroom bed was extremely noisy. Every time one of us moved it woke the other up from all the noise the box springs made making for two restless nights. Other than these few things the house was wonderful.

THE MOST RELAXATION IN YEARS............................

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best birthday I have ever had.

The cabin was beautiful inside and out.

The cleanest place I have ever had the pleasure of staying.

The lake is HUGE. My wife and I got lost trying to get back to the loading ramp.

We sat on the deck out back every night until the sun came up, just talking and taking it all in.

This is the first trip I took my parents on. But it wont be the last.

We will be coming back over and over again if they will have us.

If I have any complaints. Of which I dont. It would be the number of steps down to the dock.

But once you get down there, it hard to leave.............with all the good fishing off the dock and all.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved our laid back experience here! Very nicely furnished, close enough to town, but far enough away to be serene and just what the doctor ordered for this new momma. My husband was able to fish and entertain our two (5 and 8 years) older children while my two week old and I were totally comfortable and relaxed with a beautiful view in the cabin! We will definitely be back.
