  • Staff Retreat

    "We chose this location for our annual staff retreat; we wanted a relaxing location that had room for us to move around, with plenty for everyone to do. This house on Lake Wedowee did just that! The property itself was gorgeous with care taken on the inside to make it feel comfortable and relaxing, yet fun and put together. We were able to hold the more serious part of our retreat on the spacious deck, or in the great room when it got too warm outside. We spent most of our free time near the outdoor fireplace, or in the game room playing billiards or ping-pong. The dock was also a popular lounging area, especially in the evenings with a gorgeous view on the lake. The house comfortably slept 14 adults. The kitchen was plenty large enough for us to prepare meals and store all the food we brought. There were also enough beds and bathrooms upstairs and downstairs to split the genders so that everyone was comfortable. We loved the fact that this property was a little off the beaten path, but convenient to Wedowee, AL when we needed to get extra supplies. The owner was extremely gracious in dealing with our stay and made sure the house was decorated and stocked with candies for the upcoming holiday! We would definitely consider this property for another retreat, and I even think some of our staff members want to come back with their families! Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us!"

  • Amazing Stay, Once Again!

    "This is the 2nd year in a row that we have rented this property. We have had an amazing stay both times. Family comes in from around the world, and everyone is in love with the property immediately. Plenty of mingle and gathering space, as well as excellent sleeping arrangements. Every year we want more and more to purchase one ourselves. Owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing waterfront property with tons of space and incredibly peaceful atmosphere. Will be returning."

Lake Wedowee Travel Tips

Lake Wedowee Vacation Rentals on 271 Miles of Shoreline

Mid-way between Birmingham, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia off Interstate 20 is Lake Wedowee; it is close to State Highway 431 and Alabama Highway 48. It is actually the Harris Reservoir in Randolf County. The reservoir is 24 miles long and was completed in 1983 by R. L. Harris. Lake Wedowee condos are situated around the 271-mile shoreline among over 10,500 acres of forest.

Lake Wedowee Condos in a Peaceful Location to Enjoy Alabama’s Beauty

Lake Wedowee lake houses are great choices for those who are seeking a peaceful vacation in an area perfect for hiking and fishing. The Tallapoosa and Little Tallapoosa Rivers are the main source of water for the lake where visitors can fish for largemouth bass, spotted bass, bluegill, shellcrackers (also known as redear sunfish) catfish and crappie. Activities on the lake include waterskiing, boating and swimming. The nearby river Tallapoosa is a great whitewater rafting area with small shoals ideal for beginners.

Close to Cheaha State Park

An enjoyable day trip from Lake Wedowee vacation rentals is Cheaha State Park. The park is surrounded by the Talladega National Park. The name originates from the local Creek Indians who called it "Chaha" which means high place. The park is thought to be the highest point in Alabama. The park includes several "hiking only" trails. Among these trails are the quarter-mile Bald Road Boardwalk, where hikers are rewarded with stunning views at the end of the trail and Pulpit Rock Trail. This is a moderate hike to Pulpit Rock itself where visitors can repel down the rock or just enjoy the scenery. The most difficult hike is the Rock Garden and Lake Trail. Here, there is a 1,000-foot elevation gain during the first half mile. Recreational activities at Lake Cheaha include swimming, taking out a paddle boat and fishing for bass and bluegill. By the lake is a fabulous adventure playground where children can run wild in a safe multi-station play area. Off roading enthusiasts will enjoy the Kentuck ORV trail, the 107-mile Pinhoti Trail, Odum Scout Trail and Chinnabee Silent Trail. At Chinnabee, stop and wonder at the stunning waterfalls along the route. For those who enjoy horseback riding, there are several trails where riders are welcome to explore. The park welcomes well behaved dogs.

Those with a GPS receiver may want to enjoy the geocashing available in Cheaha State Park to spend a few hours treasure hunting with this increasingly popular outdoor activity. Geocaching is a global game of treasure hunting using GPS to locate the treasure.

Also within an easy distance is the Talladega Superspeedway. For those who have always dreamt of becoming a racing driver, head to Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure and make that dream come true.
