Great time again!
Great time again!
This was yet another peaceful and relaxing vacation. Weather was good and the water was perfect! We had the placed filled to the max and had space for everyone. We had several Ping Pong tournaments, and Wii Bowling and Boxing were a big hit this time around. Not sure who had more fun the kids or the “Big” kids. Be ready to climb stairs as there are quite a few and be ready to get wet. All the days spend on a raft or boat and nights by the fire. Jeff the owner is quick to respond with any questions or concerns.

I and my two daughters and their families stayed the last week in June 2012 thru 7/4. Had great weather that was very hot but the water was great. Did this place last year and loved it then too. With the 7 kids we had 13 people and had plenty of room for all. This home is all it is billed to be clean and well maintained. Great place for families with children and Grandma had a shaded place on the dock to watch all the fun and swim a little too. Great kitchen we ate in all week, with menus planned in advance. We came to the lake to be at the lake - spend time on our boat and jet skis and just play by the dock. We did various games in the evening including one round of Bunco which I bought the prizes for, so much fun when we are all together. Will probably do this same place again next year.

The BEST PLACE to stay on Wedowee
The BEST PLACE to stay on Wedowee
I am writing this review a bit late, but the sheer fact that I am taking the time to do this, even 4 months after my stay should speak volumes of this place! First, I should start by saying that the pictures on this site, although beautiful, do not to justice to how wonderful this home truly is! The house is nestled off of a gravel road, with a good bit of distance from neighbors, which gives you the feeling of having the lake all to yourself! The home is decorated beautifully, but is still family friendly; it is a spacious home but still provides you with the cozy lake house feeling. We went on this trip with several other adults, and there was plenty of room so we could have separate time but also come together! The kitchen is beautiful and was where we spent the majority of our evenings! It opens onto a sun room and back deck which is perfect for summer nights! On the lower level you find the game room and 2 bedrooms, which provide the perfect "escape" for children. Although we did not bring children on this trip, I could see kids wanting to hang out do here during a family vacation. When you walk out of the lower level you find another excellent space to entertain and spend time outside grilling up the perfect meal. The patio was gorgeous and provided excellent views of the lake! Although the house was beautiful, the highlight of the trip for our group was the boat house and sun deck. We spent all of our days out here catching rays and just floating in the water! The slide (yes, even for a group of adults) was a blast! We brought a boat, and the boat house provided the perfect place for us to tie up the boat when we were not using it. Overall, we completely enjoyed ourselves and hated to leave on Sunday to return to work on Monday! This house is the perfect getaway for families with children or for a couples trip to have some childlike fun of your own! We will definitely be returning again. A BIG thank you to Jeff and his family for their hospitality and letting folks stay in their home!

Great views....wonderfully relaxing...lovely kitchen.....would go back in a minute! We appreciated that the owner was especially helpful and accessible before and during our stay. We loved all of the fun art and antiques throughout this lovely house....and enjoyed spending time having fun playing ping pong downstairs.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at the Wedowee Lakeside Getaway. It was so relaxing with outstanding lake views. We brought our pontoon boat, which we launched from the nearby landing. We really enjoyed the cruising around the beautiful, quiet lake as well as fishing. We definately would love to come back. It is truly a great place for all ages and large groups, but we also found it to be a great getaway for just a couple who want to "stop and smell the roses".

Three Family Fun
Three Family Fun
We recently had three families stay at the Lakeside Getaway and EVERYONE had a terrific time. The house was beautiful but much of our time was in the water. We spent endless hours jumping off the dock and going down the slide. Also, the location of the dock made it easy to jet ski and boat all day long. The water was warm and clean with plenty of nearby coves to explore and enjoy. Also, the lake never felt crowded even on Saturday. Lastly, the neighborhood boat ramp was literally a stones throw away and made it very easy to get the boat/jet ski in and out of the lake. All three families agreed that we need to come back every year!!!

There are few places where we can entertain our entire family in one spot for days while the car remains parked in the drive! Our family of ten, ranging from grandparents to age three, enjoyed every minute of our stay at this beautiful home. The Lakeside Getaway more than exceeded our expectations with its spacious rooms, decks, and porches...but that was only part of it...the dock provides another whole living area by day (and night) with it's fun slide for the young and the young-at-heart, and its upper deck for those who dare to jump or dive into the clear lake... or just watch. The owner was very helpful before and after our stay. We have already recommended this property to friends and family; our children have done the same. We have all gone back to our respective homes, but continue to talk about "the lake house". I keep thinking about how beautiful it will be in the fall when all those trees show their autumn colors.

The home was awesome. The view spectacular. The home was perfect for getting away from the modern world. Lots of stairs, you get a good work out. Very spacious and the bed were very comfortable. Fishing off the dock was relaxing, we caught dinner and ate well. The home had all the luxuries but nestled in the woody countryside that brought solitude and relaxation. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away from the city, this is the spot. The town is very small but the people are very friendly. Beautiful countryside to take a drive.

What a BLAST!
What a BLAST!
How do I tell you that this house and its location was the perfect place for our friends and family’s summer vacation and would be for yours as well? We stayed for 6 nights, had 6 adults and 5 kids with plenty of space for everyone. And the location is so peaceful. You can get up early in the morning (really anytime) and sit on one of the many porches and just enjoy a book or work on a puzzle and just hear the sounds of nature. The kitchen has a great set up for flow of meals and the double oven helps especially when it is pizza night. The water is absolutely amazing, so clear and the temperature of the water was unbelievable, I didn’t know a lake could be so perfect. We spent many days just floating around in the water in front of the house or on the Jet Ski’s (rented) and boat (brought). The water slide was so much fun, everyone (adults and kids) was on it everyday, and it was the best way to cool off after tanning on the chairs that were on the top of the deck. What a relaxing vacation, that we all needed. We will be back as soon as we can. On a side note…Next time (and we plan on there being one) the parents will take the kids rooms on the top floor (yes they are singles, but push them together or sleep separate, you’ll be so worn out after a day on the lake it wont matter, lol) and just give the kids the bottom floor. That is where the Ping-Pong and video games are and it’s a huge space, plenty of room for them to stretch out.

We had a relaxing and fun family vacation on the lake. We swam, fished, went down the slide, jumped off the dock, hiked, played ping pong, Wii, board games, roasted marshmallows and more. Our childran ranging in age from 2 to 16 enjoyed everything the property had to offer. The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We would definiately recommend this vacation to other families.

About the owner: Our family lives in Sandy Springs, GA and consists of my wife, our 3 children and a dog. We love our time at Lake Wedowee, there is something for everyone...whether it's wakeboarding, tubing, swimming, sliding down the slide, or going to a local rodeo, everyone has fun.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Wedowee:
Lake Wedowee is clean and uncrowded, perfect for boating and swimming. The local community is charming, always hosting fairs, farmer's markets, rodeos and other events, there is always something new to do. The location is convenient, less than 2 hours away from our home in Atlanta.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our lake house is designed for families...built on a quiet bay for playing in the water around the dock without boat traffic, constructed only 15 feet off the water for convenience to the house, added to the dock is a 2 story slide for entertainment, and being located next to the largest open water Lake Wedowee offers makes it perfect for boating and jet skiing.
