About Laurie Bailey

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.

Laurie Bailey purchased this house in 2010

Why Laurie Bailey chose Weiss Lake

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful property! So relaxing. Had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Property is as beautiful as advertised. Owner/manager easy to work with. Visited for the week with our young adult kids and a girlfriend. There are several steps down to the water, but property is landscaped and well cared for. Would recommend for anyone needing a relaxing haven away to de-stress. Loved the deck overlooking the lake - got some writing done in quiet moments there. Kids loved jumping in the lake, sunning on the dock, and taking our kayak out. Will definitely return!

Just left Cowan Creek and am feeling relaxed and rejuvinated!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us retreated to Cowan Creek as a bachelorette party get away. It was incredible!! Laurie and her husband were so helpful the whole time. The house is beautiful, well decorated, and makes you feel like you are right at home. There were plenty of places to sleep, the house was well stocked and impeccably clean with all necesssities, and we immediately felt comfortable. I was worried about parking with there being 10 of us but there was plenty of room. Weiss lake doesn't haven't a ton to do in the vicinity but with a little forethought and planning we were able to rent a boat and driver who picked us up directly from the dock. The lake was great and everyone raved about the weekend.

This lake house is even more beautiful than the photos. It was so clean!!! The kitchen was well stocked so that cooking was easy.

The owner was so nice to work with and she went out of her way to make sure we were happy.

Loved our stay & hope to return again!
