Lake Wedowee house description

You will love our warm and inviting home on beautiful Lake Wedowee! Whether you're enjoying the stunning views or playing in the water, this is a vacation home with something for everyone! , This 4 BR, 3B, house is located on a year 'round, deep water point and sits atop 2 gently sloped lots with views of the Little Tallapoosa and the mouth of Wedowee Creek. The entire property includes a vacant wooded lot next door ensuring plenty of privacy and loads of room for swimming and other water activities. Over 600 ft. of water frontage and 2 separate docks are yours to enjoy. One oversized dock is for sunning, swimming, has a boat slip, and boat tie-ups. A smaller covered dock houses our personal boat and watercraft (use of owners watercraft not included in the rental program) and serves as a great fishing spot or swimming point. Our little ones use the shallow space between the docks as their own safe and contained swimming area.
The house was built for family gatherings and big groups - all the common areas are large and open to the outdoors and each other. The kitchen, dinning and living area are open and have panoramic water views. The dining table seats 10-12 and the large kitchen has an eat-in bar. Off the dinning area is an oversized screen porch with views of the quiet cove. The porch has a swing, seating for 10 plus and separate eating area. This is primo outdoor space if you need a break from the sun or just want to appreciate a seasonal shower and stay dry! From the screened porch, extending the entire length of the house is a large covered porch with a 2 story vaulted ceiling. This outdoor living area was an addition in 2005 and is everyone's favorite sitting/gathering spot. A view thru the trees down the mouth of the Little Tallapoosa river makes you feel like you are in the mountains! Settle back in the Adirondack chairs sipping a cool drink and the take in the view or recline under the quiet hum of ceiling fans and have a peaceful nap. The family room boasts large picture windows with lake views, 2 story vaulted-beamed ceiling, rock fireplace, TV/VCR/DVD/ Stereo system.WiFi
The house can sleep 12 - 14 guests comfortably. The main level bedroom has a queen size bed. The upper level has 2 bedrooms and full bath. One bedroom had a queen and a twin bed the other bedroom has a double bunk (double bed on bottom and single up top), and a twin. The lower level has a bedroom with a double bunk and twin. The lower level has a full bath, a utility room with washer, dryer and extra refrigerator and a playroom/TV room with bunk beds. The lower level has many windows and views of the big lake and cove.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: My husband and I purchased 3 lake lots on beautiful Lake Wedowee in 1995. We built the house in '97 using a modified Southern Living house plan, 'Nautical Cottage'. We both have large extended families and we wanted a place that would accommodate a crowd. We now co-own the house/lots with another family and have 6 children between us ranging in ages 25-17 yrs. .We have been vacationing here for years , enjoying the house all year long - as fun as it is during the summer months its a great get away during the 'off season', as well as in the quiet months of the winter. Did I mention the many Thanksgivings we have celebrated here!) As much as we love lake living, we found that activities kept us from using the home as much as we wanted. By renting the house, our guests can enjoy the lake as much as we do

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Wedowee:
                  Lake Wedowee is located in the southern foothills of the Apppalachian mountain chain. It is rated as one of the cleanest lakes in Alabama. With over 270 miles of shoreline, Lake Wedowee offers an abundance of outdoor activities. Our family loves the water and my husband is an avid fisherman. it is a great place to wet a line for crappie, bass, brim or catfish

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  FAVORITE THINGS TO DO AT LAKE WEDOWEE...meeting the morning with coffee on the porch...watching my husband trolling thru the water fishing @ sun-up...a trail run along the quiet paths in our neighborhood -ending with a jump into the lake...a group of children catching fish off the dock...the smell of breakfast...'noodling'off our dock all afternoon... seeing the dogs enjoy the lake experience...a group swim across the cove to jump off Mr. Warren's double decker dock...a nap in the hammock listening to water lapping against the shore line...exploring quiet coves in the kayak...open water swim to the end of our cove...watching little ones play boating games in their private shallow swimming area btw the docks...reading/napping on the covered porch listening to the hum of the fan...family games during a rain storm under the shelter of the screened porch...friends driving by on theirs boats and stopping to sit a spell and visit...finding the best rope swing on the lake... too many cooks in the kitchen or at the grill preparing a meal with good drinks and great music... ALL sitting down to share a meal in the great outdoors...family dance parties...trips to the Marina for bait and treats...Worship on the Water at Lakeside..Not missing church by having our own Sunday School lesson on the deck with listeners completely attentive so they will be chosen first to TUBE ...fireworks from the dock...picking blueberries outside my kitchen window in July...watching the sunset flying squirrel show... candlelight and conversation...a full moon illuminating the inside of the house...enjoying a break from our hectic life with family and friends, surrounded by God's perfect natural world... falling into bed exhausted..AND...waking up the next day TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN...INFINITE JOY!!
