HELPFUL HINT: We strongly recommend bringing an ice chest for your cold beverages and foods. A common complaint is that refrigerators are not working properly. 99% of time, when renters arrive they pack refrigerators with hot drinks and food; then open the refrigerator every 15 minutes of so before it has time to cool the contents.

Car: Necessary

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 and across from Scoops Restaurant and grocery store. 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!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

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

Why Lake Wedowee:
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 called 'Scoops' that has gas for boats located on the Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
