ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR LAKEFRONT RENTALS ON LAKE WEDOWEE... we have continued to add new amenities each year for the benefit of our guests! Recently, the house, decks and dock got a completely new look and we added a nice porch swing down on the dock as well as swings for the kids on the lower deck. Last year, the house got a new Flat Screen T.V. to enhance our home theater system so you can enjoy your movies, music, etc. We've also added new linens, furnishings and other amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. FOR 2015, WE HAVE UPGRADED OUR PONTOON BOAT TO A 20 FOOT SYLVAN SUNCHASER WITH 75 HP MERCURY 4-STROKE MOTOR... THE BOAT IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION AND THE MOTOR IS DEPENDABLE, QUIET AND FUEL-EFFICIENT!

Enjoy the double hammock near the water's edge and Adirondack chairs or porch swing on the dock for relaxing by the lake. Our cove is the perfect spot for kids to swim in the lake, right off the dock. We also have 'Kingsford' charcoal grill on the front porch... as well as beautiful outdoor furniture on the screened porch. The large screened porch is everyone's favorite gathering place, but there are more decks and porches to enjoy, including a dining gazebo by the water with a picnic table. Our 'Old Town' 3-person canoe is also available for our guests use.

OUR 20 FOOT PONTOON BOAT IS AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL BY OUR HOUSEGUESTS ONLY... AT THE BEST RATE AVAILABLE ON THE LAKE!!!

ABOUT LAKE WEDOWEE AND THE BEARFOOT LODGE...
Relax in style and enjoy this beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated, 3 Bedroom, 2 bath vacation home on one of the cleanest lakes in the Southeast. Approx 90 minutes from metro Atlanta or Birmingham, Lake Wedowee has been called Alabama's best kept secret... until the last few years.

Nestled in the foothills of the southern end of the Appalachian chain... Lake Wedowee is a mountain lake, affording gorgeous views of over 270 miles of shoreline... less than 25 percent of the lake has been developed, so there are plenty of places to find peace and quiet. Cruise the lake, head to Lakeside Marina for a meal or just drop the anchor in a quiet cove and relax. You can also enjoy some of the best fishing in the southeast! Cheaha State Park, with it's beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails, is less than 30 minutes away. Shop the antique stores in Wedowee or explore the caves at Cathedral caverns.

Our home has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation in style! Two nearby boat ramps and your own private dock in the backyard. Two large porches and a waterside gazebo offer plenty of space for outdoor relaxing and dining. Our lot SLOPES GENTLY TO THE WATER which makes it easy to walk to the dock... plenty of room for kids to play and explore. Enjoy the hammock or the porch swing on the dock while the kids swim in our protected cove. FREE USE OF OUR 'OLD TOWN' 3-PERSON CANOE FOR GUESTS.

All towels, linens, dishes, and cooking utensils provided. We've tried to create a quiet peaceful, atmosphere where you can spend time with friends and family, with plenty of things to do together. Play a board game or read a book and relax. Or just sit out on the screened porch at night and listen to the symphony of frogs and crickets. We also have a nice home theater system, for watching movies or listening to music on DVD/CD. 'Kingsford' BBQ grill (charcoal) available for guest use.

Just 4 miles from downtown Wedowee. Minutes to grocery stores, movie rental, drugstore, and other shopping (Super Walmart a short drive away). You can now buy beer and wine in the local grocery stores (Yes... Wedowee/Randolph County is now 'wet'!). Several nice family style restaurants within 15-20 minutes including excellent barbeque, Mexican, Pizza, and 'Southern-style' cuisine... check out the popular 'Top-of-the-River' Restaurant in Anniston. Also, Lakeside Marina restaurant (for catfish, burgers, etc) is accessible by boat and has nice outdoor seating. Also, El Chilar Mexican restaurant (near the Hwy 431 bridge) has great food, excellent service and now serves beer and Margaritas.

You will enjoy the slow-paced, relaxing lifestyle at Lake Wedowee. Come make some family memories at this simple, but elegant lake home!

PONTOON BOAT RENTAL at best rate available on the lake. $175 PER DAY/$800 PER WEEK (Compare our rates to $299 per day for a "day-only" rental at the local Marina!!!).

BOAT RENTAL POLICIES:

1) BOAT OPERATOR MUST ATTEST TO PREVIOUS BOATING EXPERIENCE... NO TOWING / SKIING / TUBING ALLOWED.

2) BOAT RENTAL NOT AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND.

3) Boat rental ONLY available to renting guests and MUST BE RENTED FOR ENTIRE DURATION OF GUEST STAY (i.e. WE DO NOT RENT THE BOAT FOR 'ONE OR TWO DAYS'). Summer rentals reserved for house and boat together due to high demand.
