About Mac & Julie McKinney

After falling in love with Lake Wedowee, we made the decision to build a home there in 2005. The deal was sealed when we stumbled upon an incredible point lot surrounded with deep water and a gentle slope. What luck, ...we still have to pinch ourselves!

Mac & Julie McKinney purchased this house in 2005

It was simple Beautiful....Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely stunning from the inside out. It was about 12 of us and we had plenty of space. If I'm ever in that area again I will definitely stay there. All of our plans were in Birmingham which was a 2-hour drive but it was worth it.

Mrs. Julie was very helpful and always available to answer any questions are concerns.

Best View on Lake

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful home with all the amenities you will need, plus more! The property is very well kept and very clean. The decks around the house are very comfortable and a lot of fun to hang out on no matter what time of the day! The dock is one of the nicest I've ever seen and probably one of the best available. The downstairs area is great for the kids, and the old school ice cream bar is really amazing! Julie is very nice and efficient at answering any questions. Like I've read on other reviews, the pictures she has posted do not even begin to express how nice and beautiful this property is. I would definitely stay here again!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all the amenities listed. Ice maker kept up with us even having enough to fill a small cooler every day to take down to the great double decker dock. Every one including grandma swims but only kids would launch themselves from upper deck of dock. Home and yard are nicer than photos. Property was clean and ready for our arrival. Julie always answered e-mails promptly. We boat and have 2 ski doos so we swim, tube and ski. We eat in all week as it is easier when we are feeding as many as we do. We have eaten many times at the restaurant across from the Wedowee marina. It has good food and you can park your boat on the water. We also go to Scoops usually just for their hand dipped ice cream but they have good food too. They have a web page. Scoops is up the river but each are about the same distance from the house 30 minutes by boat. Up the river is a nice cruise with good bird watching of hawks and such nested in trees in the creek. Both restaurants have gas. We had great weather with only one storm that sent us in around lunch then cleared up and we were back out that afternoon. Our party included my oldest daughter and her family. My youngest daughter and her family. Me (Grandma) and my brother (Great Uncle). Plenty of room for all. There were interesting magazines and books available to read. A 2010 issue of Lake Wedowee Life, a free magazine, that was on the living area table had a 3 page layout regarding the house with pictures. I took pictures so I could post on my Facebook page. A great time was had by all. We have been coming to Wedowee for several years now because it is a clean, uncrowded lake and according to the kids this was the best lake trip of all. If you are interested in spending time on the lake this home is highly recommended.

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful home was simply wonderful! The house has wonderful views of the water from 3 sides of the house and has great access to the lake from the two-level dock. Our children (and adults) particularly enjoyed jumping off the top level into the deep water. The house was more than adequately furnished with everything we needed for our stay and the owners were very accommodating and gracious. This is a beautiful and comfortable home with amazing views of beautiful Lake Wedowee and lots of comfortable outdoor spaces to enjoy them. We hope to return for another visit next year!
