Two bedroom, two bath simple cabin with screened-in porch, grilling/dining deck, and large new dock right on the lake.
The best 'room in the house' is the screened-in back porch that overlooks the lake. There are three rockers and a sofa-sized glider on the screened-in porch.
The living room has fireplace and view of the lake.
Huge, brand new dock. The dock has two chaise lounges, a table, and an umbrella stand. The stand for the umbrella is attached to the dock. Additional camp chairs are available. There is a hammock stand by the lake. Hammock and cushions for the chase lounges are in the storage area.
Both bedrooms have queen sized beds. Clean sheets will be on the beds when you arrive.
There is also a queen size air mattress with a plug in powered pump in the front bedroom closet, and sheets for it are in the front bedroom dresser. Extra pillows are in the front bedroom closet.
The back bedroom has a small ensuite bath with shower only. The main bath has a tub/shower combo. The main bathroom is older, but everything is in good working order.
Washcloths, hand towels, bath towels, and toilet paper will be available in each bathroom. Extra towels and swim towels are in the linen closet in the front bathroom.
Along the back wall of the living room is a small kitchen with refrigerator, stove, toaster, Keurig coffee/tea machine and microwave. We have all the kitchen basics available for your use - pots and pans, plates and bowls, silverware, can opener, corkscrew, etc. and will provide a mix of coffee and tea K Cups. The kitchen is very small and we don't cook much, so you won't find more advanced or unusual cooking tools. Napkins and paper towels provided. There is no dishwasher. Dish soap and a dish towel and drainer will be provided.
New - we now have wifi from Weiss Lake Internet (10 Mbps down, 2 Mbps up)!
There is NO TV! For sports fans we recommend watching the game at The Gridiron in Centre, at Linde Marie's in Cave Spring at the bar, or streaming to your personal laptop computer (you would need to bring) across our wifi connection.
We do get good coverage on Verizon and Sprint (roaming), but AT&T is text only (no voice calls). Books and games are available for rainy days, or bring your own laptop.
There is a small deck past the porch for outdoor dining and grilling. Tongs and a spatula for the gas grill are available for your use. Gas for the grill is provided. If you run out during your stay, refills are available in town.
We do not have a washer/dryer, but there is a laundromat in Centre.
We do have dogs. We will vacuum immediately before your arrival; however, there is a chance that some poofs of dog fur that were hiding under the furniture will appear during your visit. If you are highly allergic this could be an issue, so we wanted to give everyone a heads up.
We do have central heating and air plus space heaters and fans. However, the cabin has a metal roof attached to a wooden roof with the ceiling attached directly to that. There is no attic and little, if any, insulation. When the temperature is in the 90s, the cabin will get warm. We have added a window unit to keep the temperature moderate, but it is new and so we can not guarantee it will maintain a certain temperature. If you require a certain temperature, we'd love to have you in the spring or fall.
Firepit in the back yard by the water's edge for cool evenings. Chemical firestarters and firewood are available. Please do not move the fire pit to the dock because, um, fire + wooden dock = no more dock! :)
There are cleats to tie up your boat on the dock.
Launch your boat on the other side of the lake. Driving distance from the house to the boat ramp is less than two miles, and by boat to the dock is about eight tenths of a mile. You can see the boat ramp from the dock.
Feel free to borrow our two kayaks to paddle around the immediate area. There's also a paddleboard for guest use. Lifejackets for moderate sized adults are available.
Fishing poles available (you will need an Alabama fishing license).
There is an archery target, bow and arrows, and a handheld crossbow and bolts.
There are several floats available for use while swimming in the lake.
If you like, hike at nearby DeSoto State Park, Little River Canyon, or on the Gadsden-area riverside trails. If you prefer paved paths, walk, jog, or ride your bike on the nearby Chief Ladiga trail.
If you like bargain shopping, we are about an hour and a half away from Unclaimed Baggage. That place is a shopping experience!
The best restaurants in the area in our opinion are Linde Marie’s Steakhouse on the Square in Cave Spring, GA (about half an hour away) or burgers at The Gridiron right in Centre.
Grocery stores, Wal-Mart, and K-Mart are in Centre.
It is usually quiet, but we are close to our neighbors so you may hear the family next door. If they disrupt you, turning on air conditioning, fans, and/or the radio or asking them to be quiet should take care of the issue.
Great spot for time with family or friends.
Check in time is 4:00 PM and check out time is noon, although message me if you would like late checkout or early arrival. We can usually accommodate that.
Things we can't control - weather, power outage (uncommon except in storms), whether or not the fish are biting, and level of water in lake. For current water level information, go to (if this link is removed by HomeAway, Google "Weiss Lake lake level"). Full pool is 564 feet, and at full pool the water is about 6 feet deep off our dock. We have never seen the lake in our area go completely dry as we are on the Spring Creek channel. However, once the lake gets around 559 feet you will have a hard time finding enough water to get a motorized boat to the dock.
Please note: reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis based upon actual bookings. A tentative booking will not guarantee availability if a definite reservation comes through first. Thank you!
Also, we do keep the calendar 100% up to date. So if the calendar shows your preferred dates as available, you can go ahead and book. No need to message us to ask if available dates are, in fact, available. :) Thanks!
This property is managed by Austin Cooper Investments, LLC.
Atlanta-based small business owner. On the weekends, I love to get away to the lake to unwind.

Weiss Lake is a hidden gem! Only 90 minutes from the northwest corner of metro Atlanta, it's less crowded than Lanier and Allatoona.
Huge dock with cleats to tie up your boat
Screened in porch
Small deck for grilling and outdoor dining
View of the lake from the master bedroom and living room
Fireplace in living room
Now with wifi - 10mbps
This was a great stay....enjoyed fishing, golfing, kayaking, and a tour of the area covered bridges. We were very comfortable, especially enjoyed the porch. Kitchen could use a few more utensils and cookware.
At the house itself, you can relax on the porch, deck, or large dock and enjoy the views. Perfect for swimming, kakaying, or fishing. If you have a boat, we are just across the lake from a boat ramp. There are also pontoon and jet ski rentals on the lake.
Our waterfront cabin is within driving distance of several hiking and biking trails, including the paved Chief Ladiga Trail, DeSoto State Park, Little River Canyon National Park, and Talledega National Forest.
The burgers at The Gridiron in Centre are delicious and there is an awesome steakhouse (Linde Marie's) in Cave Springs.
There are several 'antique' stores in Centre, but the best shopping is at Unclaimed Baggage, about an hour and a half north.
In Cedartown, you can go skydiving!
