About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom

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.

Very clean and nice lake house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay. The lake front is well protected from the weather so the water is usually very calm here. No complaints.

Cute and clean

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean, bright and well furnished. The air conditioner and ceiling fans were great. We enjoyed the flat screen tvs in every room and the very nice shower pressure. Really special was the dishwasher and washer and dryer. Beautiful roomy deck with a good view from the cabin. These are the simple things that make a vacation pleasant and this cabin has them all. Look forward to staying here again.

Very clean, extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was the most immaculately clean home I've ever stayed in. The décor was all very tasteful and well thought out. The home is large enough to accommodate a couple easily. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed, and the views off the deck were breathtaking.

Very charming

  • 3 of 5

We found the cabin very charming and overall clean. Our only problems we had was with no internet we also had no service and they had no phone.I have never stayed anywhere without wifi that did not have a landline phone.The only other problem was the bed .It squeaked so bad we ended up sleeping in separate rooms because every time you moved it would wake the other one up.It was covered in plastic or something and you could not roll over without waking yourself up.We got no real sleep the whole 3 nights we were there.Was never so happy to be home in my own bed.The furnishings were great except for that.Had a nice patio that overlooked the lake but really couldn't see for the overgrown trees.Had a beautiful spot down at the bottom though.I wasn't able to walk the 76 stairs to get down there but my husband did.Overall not a bad place.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences. A guest recently notified us of the squeaking bed during their stay, and the box springs and mattress has since been replaced. Internet is not listed as an ammentity for The Perfect Retreat, and photos of the stairs and the view from the deck to the lake are available prior to booking; however, we will explore revisions to the listing to ensure that expectations are clear. We hope you return to our beautiful area in the future, and thank you again for your suggestions for how to improve our listing!
