Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in the Atlanta area and bought on Weiss Lake in 2004. We fell in love with the area and spend almost every weekend at Weiss Lake from March through September. In 2009 we purchased a second lot and built a home on the property in 2014. The second property is used nearly exclusively as a vacation rental but also used occasionally by friends and family.

Why the Owner Chose Centre, AL, USA:
We were first attracted to Lake Weiss as my husband is an avid fisherman. Spending more time there, we found that the area is great for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. There are some great spots nearby - like Cherokee Rock and Little River Gorge. The surrounding mountains are beautiful and the people as friendly as you would ever find. Cowan Creek is a great area for tubing, skiing, wake boarding, and swimming. Except for holidays, it's rarely crowed, so you always feel safe taking the kids out.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, peaceful, with spectacular views of the lake and mountains. Close to Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Birmingham but not crowded. There's a boat launch at nearby Pruett's Marina. This is a private home with your own dock and every convenience you would want for a weekend getaway or vacation.
