About Rita Young

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

Rita Young purchased this house in 2010

Why Rita Young chose Lake Wedowee - RL Harris Reservoir

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.

A common complaint is that the refrigerator is not working properly. 99% of time, when renters arrive they pack the refrigerator with hot drinks and food; then open the refrigerator every 15 minutes or so before it has time to cool the contents. 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

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.

We try to prepare for these type of situations. We certainly enjoy return customers to our lake house and delighted you enjoyed your visit. Each year we strive to make improvements over the previous year and hope our customers notice. We hope you and your family return again soon!

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful lake house. There is a Homey feeling when you walk into your house! I especially love the family pictures you have displayed in your house. The house was well supplied with everything we needed. We have enjoyed catching catfish and swimming, and just relaxing on the deck looking at the soothing and beautful lake. We will surely come back again. Thank you for letting us come and spend time here.

Awesome lake house!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 adults and a 4 year old) rented this property and it was wonderful. The house was decorated beautifully, the kitchen was fully stocked, and there was plenty of space. My most favorite thing about this house was the path to the lake. I have rented several other properties before this one and the walk down to the lake/dock was horrible, especially having a toddler. This is a super easy short walk to the dock, and we also loved that you could see the dock from the porch. Everyone had a great time fishing as well as swimming. Everyone felt right at home, and we are already arranging to book again next month!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your positive comments on our home! We too like the easy walk to the lake and the view! We specifically put that concrete walkway to the steps for easy access for the young and also older adults. We try very hard to make your stay at our home comfortable by equipping the kitchen with everything needed. We are glad you felt at home and that is our goal for each visitor! We certainly appreciate your return business in May and again in July we look forward to your return!

If you're looking for a place to stay and want for nothing....this is it. We've rented many homes around the US and this was, by far, the most nicely appointed, well laid-out, and family friendly we have found. The age range for our group was 5-82. Everyone was comfortable and had a ball. Very quiet with a couple of friendly doggie visitors from the neighborhood made for an A++++ stay. Rita was always there pre, during, and post-visit to answer any and all questions. Great job folks!! Highly recommended!!!

Owner's Response: Comments like this are very delightful to hear as owners and for the management. We work as a team with Rita to keep our home comfortable for our guest. The positive comment comparing our home to other homes around the US as, QUOTE: “by far, the most nicely appointed, well laid-out, and family friendly you have found!” was very exciting to read and we thank you for the very good words. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our home. Come again soon!

Cousin Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home is so well taken care of and comfortable. Kitchen was equipped with quality cookware and utensils. The outdoor area was clean and landscaped. Dock area was nice for fishing and large enough to

be comfortable. This was our second visit there and will use again.

Owner's Response: Your comments are greatly appreciated and yes we try very hard to keep our home in good condition for all our quest! We also try very hard to have good quality items in our home for our guest. We are very proud of our lawn care crew as they keep the grounds looking nice for our quest to enjoy. We are delighted we could make your Cousin Reunion something to remember and very glad our home is where you picked for such a special occasion. We thank you very much for your repeat business! We welcome your return soon!

Summer at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

This was the 2nd summer my brother and his family joined ours for a vacation at the lake. We had such a great time! My brother lives in AZ so we don't get to see them much. This house is the perfect place for large family gatherings. We all fit so comfortably and enjoy playing cards and hanging out. This year the fish weren't as kind to us but that's ok. Hopefully we will be able to do this again.

The property is located directly on Lake Wedowee with 200 feet of water front and can be accessed from Randolph County Road 82 and is about 3/4 miles from Fosters Landing and boat launch just across the Tallapoosa River Bridge

Talladega Motor Speedway is only a 40 minute drive located on I-20 West. If you’re up for an experience you will never forget checkout the Dale Jarrett Racing School in Talladega, where you can drive or be a passenger in a NASCAR race car. This is an adventure that will surely thrill you as the car will reach speeds of 170+ miles per hour. Also consider attending one of the two annual NASCAR races a true fun event. If you enjoy a beach like atmosphere go to Flat Rock on the lake which, can be driven to or traveled to by boat - it is a great family experience!

On the quieter side is the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum. It is worth a visit as well. The museum opened in 1983 with the intent of preserving the history of motorsports. It is located next to the Talladega Superspeedway on 35 acres.

Cheaha State Park is located on Cheaha Mountain, is only a 20 mile drive and is the highest point in Alabama at 2,407 feet above sea level. Here you will find stunning views, good hiking trails and lots of fresh air! If you decide to spend the day there is a nice restaurant with a fantastic view while you dine!

Flat Rock: Take the time to visit this free day use park with swimming, fishing, hiking on a nature trail and picnicking. Open May through September. This is a 25 acre park on beautiful Lake Wedowee. What is amazing is the entire park is located on granite with access to the lake. Address: 7115 CR 870 Wedowee, AL 36278.

Antiquing: There are several antique and gift shops located in Wedowee where one may spend hours searching for the special antique item you have been looking for. Our home is partially furnished from items we found in these stores!
