About Rita Young

This property is managed by Wedowee Lake & Lands Realty, LLC.

Rita Young purchased this house in 2010

Why Rita Young chose Wedowee

My family heritage is from this region of Alabama and we always dreamed of a home on a lake in this part of Alabama, This lakehouse is located central between Atlanta and Birmingham. We have family in both places and the home is a large 5 bedroom lakehouse where my children and grandchildren can come and visit. The waterfront lake house on Lake Wedowee is more than we ever dreamed of! We wanted a home close to good fishing and hunting! The lakehouse is .5 miles to Fosters Landing and boat launch, where there is a nice seasonal restaurant and convenience store that has gas for boats located on the Lake.

What makes this house unique

This lakehouse is located on year round water and has a mountain lake setting on the upper part of Lake Wedowee. This section of the lake is away from much of the major boat traffic that is on the main part of the Lake. The unique benefits are the beauty and serenity of the lake and surroundings provide a relaxing atmosphere to help you unwind and rejuvenate. This lake house has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths on a great location of the lake. The floating dock is a wonderful place to relax and catch a nice fish from the popular fishing hole directly in front of the dock! The property is located on a quiet cove where Buchanan Creek enters Lake Wedowee. This property is a short ride to the world famous Talladega Raceway!

It is also best to bring plastic garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper, dish washing soap, dish washer machine detergent, laundry detergent, fabric softener, beach towels

Very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

10 people visiting for a long weekend. There was plenty of space in a nice quiet setting that served the purpose - - rest and relaxation! The only complaint would be the dishwasher didn't work, but that is so minor it is easily forgiven. Truly a lovely home.

Vacations with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We rented the M&D's lake house for a week and we loved it. There was 10 of us ( 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 toddlers) and plenty of room for a few more. The layout of the house is great, the kitchen fully loaded ( only bring food)and towels for the bathroom were provided. The view from the upper balcony is really nice, perfect spot on the lower deck to relax. The game room with air hockey tables, ping pong table, checkers table, tv/DVD and foosball table came handy on rainy days. We were able to fish from the floating deck, swim and kayak from there as well, the deck has a ladder to get in and out (We brought inflatables kayak ). Wedowee town is a few miles away with antiques stores, grocery stores and pharmacy. The marina is not too far by car and has boats available to rent for the day or week. We really enjoyed our week and we will definitely try to go back.

Owner's Response: Dear Anne, family and friends, thank you for your review of our Lakehouse. We are so delighted you all enjoyed our home. We try very hard to make the Lakehouse seem like home. We too also enjoy the game room on those rainy days on Lake Wedowee. We are glad you were able to get out on the lake and enjoy the beauty and the fishing. Thank you for your comments on the decks and dock as we work hard to keep them looking nice for our guest and glad you were able to enjoy them! It was great to hear the kitchen was well equipped also. We welcome you, family and friends to return soon to our Lakehouse on beautiful Lake Wedowee!

Beautiful house, wonderful view, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

10 of us ( 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 toddlers) stayed at the M&D's lake house for a week. The house was perfect, actually there was enough room for a few more, the kitchen is very well equipped, all you need to bring is your food. The game room with the ping pong table, air hockey and checker table came handy on rainy day. The view from the upper and lower deck is wonderful and relaxing. We enjoyed fishing from the private floating dock, and were able to get on the lake with the kayak we brought and swim from right there. Wedowee is a few minutes away by car , there is antiques stores, a grocery store, pharmacy ... everything you need right there. Pontoon boats are available to rent at the Marina and we were fortunate to have a captain taking us for a day ( get my boat app)We were sad to have to leave the lake house. We will be going back

Our family enjoyed our time at the lake house again this Spring Break. The home is clean & properly stocked. We did have a neighborhood power outage for 3 hours our first night but found two lanterns to provide light. This home is spacious & great for relaxing & fishing.
