Why Kathy Wiggins chose Lake Wedowee - RL Harris Reservoir

We chose Lake Wedowee because of it's beautiful lake and easy access to ATL and BHM airports. We chose this particular house because:

- It is on a very large lot, (two adjacent lots);

- There is deep water year round;

- It has a gently sloping lot, (no steps to water);

- Privacy (it's on a peninsula);

- Great for raising kids;

- It's located on the main lake with panoramic view of the lake;

- It is midway between Atlanta and Birmingham (approx. 80 miles to both);

- Only 45 miles to Talladega;

- 30 miles to Oxford, AL.

What makes this house unique

This home has a very relaxing feel with an inviting waterfront. We love to cook hotdogs and s'mores on the fire after a long day of playing on the water.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time on our weekend getaway, we wished we could've stayed longer. The house was beautifully decorated and well stocked. We had everything we needed. The view was amazing, and the dock was perfect for bringing our boat and jet ski. The public boat ramp was within walking distance, which made for easy access. Kathy is very pleasant and accommodating. We will definitely visit again. Thanks!

Great Home With Wonderful, Relaxing Views!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental met our expectations in every way!!

First, the setting.....the view of Lake Wedowee was breathtaking, and a welcome sight every morning. Most of the house on the lake-facing side is windows, and you can't miss it!! With the leaves turning, and the sun shining, it was like the lake was ablaze with color!!

The house is located on a dead-end street, so definitely quiet, no traffic!

The house was in excellent condition. The downstairs walkout suite was really cool! The kitchen was very functional, and as usual, our family of 7 spent most of our time in there cooking, drinking and laughing!

The lake was very low, possibly historically low, so if bringing a boat, you would probably want to check the lake level for boat access to the floating dock on the property.

The property coordinator met us personally on our arrival to show us everything we needed to know.

The owner was fantastic, and when we had trouble with anything (and there wasn't much), she responded super quickly and in a gracious, customer-focused manner.

We would definitely recommend the property, and plan on renting again in the future!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at our home on the lake. You should come stay again in the summer months when the lake is at full pool. FYI - the water level is brought down in the winter months and rises again in the Spring. The Alabama Power website: gives information on the lake levels along with fishing and recreation information. Hope to see you in Wedowee again soon!

Very clean, well kept and inviting Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is well maintained and clean. The owner and the property overseer were very responsive, friendly and helpful. We stayed here with two other families for 4 days/ 3 nights and it was perfect, each family had their own area when they wanted/needed it but we still had an area for all of us to congregate whether it was the den, deck out back, the fire pit down by the water or on the pier. We would definitely recommend staying here and we look forward to renting this house again in the future.

Truly beautiful home on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for my family to spend a few days relaxing at the lake. The home has plenty of room and is decorated beautifully! It was clean, comfortable, and the kitchen was fully stocked. The kids really enjoyed fishing off the dock and enjoying the sun. The communication with the owner was easy and she was quick to answer any questions we had. We will definitely be renting from her again!
