About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, RANCH, lakefront with gently sloping yard/ 90hp pontoon

Captain Cook's is your home away from home on Lake Wedowee. This home is brand new to the rental market and we are constantly making updates to the property. This home is a fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bath jewel located on a wooded lot directly on the lake with year round water. The house is family friendly single story, with books, CDs, toys and baby needs such as high chair and portable crib. The walk to the lake is short (64' from house) and easy with a wooden boardwalk all the way to the private covered pier and dock area. Surf the web with unlimited WIFI while sunning on the dock! There is even a boat ramp on the property for launching your boat as well. Lakeside Restaurant is a quick boat ride up the lake.

At Captain Cook's you will find all the towels linens, dishes, cookware and utensils you will need. We have gone the extra mile to make sure the kitchen is fully equipped. Hairdryer, iron and ironing board are also provided for your use. Satellite tv and internet access provided throughout the house. Internet access even reaches to the property boat dock! There is a gas grill for cooking the fish you catch each day. A ping pong table is available for the competitive types as well as a corn hole set up. Enjoy the use of two kayaks and five person pedal boat.

The large master bedroom has a king bed, flat screen tv, DVD player and private porch. Enjoy views of the lake from both the windows or from a rocker on the porch.

A queen bed with deluxe memory foam mattress topper is in another large bedroom. This bedroom has a private entrance from the front porch. Twin beds or king complete the third bedroom.

The living room includes a large screen LCD TV with satellite service. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room allowing this home to comfortably sleep eight. There is plenty of space for reading or relaxing in the cozy living room or on the large porch facing the lake. You can swing, rock or just sit and enjoy the view.

We are renting our house in hopes that families can get away and enjoy time together. This is why we have tried to provide things for all ages to enjoy in our home. We have plans to finish the basement by summer and include a gameroom and bunkroom.

This is non-smoking, pet-free home. We would consider pets on an individual basis and there is an additional fee. For additional information feel free to email anytime.

This home is located directly on Lake Wedowee with a gently sloping yard. There is a wooden boardwalk to the covered, lighted pier and a floating dock. There is a boat ramp on the property as well as plenty of space to park your boat trailer.

The town of Wedowee has several antique and gift shops to occupy those who like to browse and shop.

Talladega, home of the Talledega Superspeedway, is less than an hour drive from Wedowee (46 miles). Not only can you watch the races there but at the Dale Jarrett Racing School you can try your hand at driving a NASCAR race car. There is also a really nice museum next to the Superspeedway you may want to check out.

If hiking is more to your liking then Cheaha State Park is only 20 miles away on Cheaha Mountain. Fresh air, mountain bluffs and picturesque views await you there.

Then back to Lake Weedowee, one of the things people love to check out is Flat Rock (7115 CR 870 Wedowee,AL 37278). This is a free day use park with hiking, fishing, swimming and of course picnicking. Flat Rock park covers 25 acres and is open May-September.

However, if you want to get away from it all and just relax then Wedowee is the perfect spot. It is a quiet, friendly town with people willing to help you find whatever you might need. The lake is mesmerizing and you may find yourself spending hours just sitting on the porch or lying in a hammock and soaking in the peace and calm.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Charles and Lisa Cook live in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. We are the parents of five incredible children and three grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Wedowee, AL, USA:
We love to entertain people and have always wanted to have the opportunity to have a place to share with others. This is our 'bucket list' dream and we hope others love Lake Wedowee as much as we do. We love having a place our family can get away to and want other people to have that opportunity too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the view of the lake from this house and the privacy it affords. We knew when we first saw it that we could make it into a home in which others would feel welcome and not want to leave.
