There is even a private boat ramp on the property for launching your boat as well. Enjoy evenings lakeside by the firepit

About Charles and Lisa Cook

Charles and Lisa Cook live in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. We are the parents of five incredible children and four grandchildren. We absolutely love to get away to the lake every chance we can. It is our desire that others experience the rejuvenation and peace that time in this place brings.

Charles and Lisa Cook purchased this house in 2014

Why Charles and Lisa Cook chose Wedowee

We enjoy entertaining people and have always wanted to have the opportunity to own a place to share with others. This is our 'bucket list' dream and we hope others enjoy Lake Wedowee as much as we do. We love having a place where our family can get away and want other people to have that chance as well.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things about this house is the view of the lake 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. We have decorated each room with care and filled it with everything one would need to call it home. The kitchen is even equipped with staple items like sugar, flour, coffee, spices, oil etc. The bathrooms even have q-tips and cotton swabs.

Lovely Home and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This has been such a relaxing and comfortable home for a mini vacation. It has lots of windows with great views and located in a quiet and private cove. We love to cook, and we had everything we needed to prepare meals. We didn’t get to use the porch as much as we would have liked because a hard freeze set in right before we got there. We are hoping to be able to stay here again when the weather warms up. Captain Cook is very nice and hospitable. We are very pleased.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here. We spent a long weekend with our twin 6-year old grandsons and really enjoyed our stay. All the comforts of home, great views of the lake, privacy and all the conveniences. Owner is very accommodating.

We loved it and look forward to staying again!

Great lakeside escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time by the lake and even caught enough fish for dinner one night. Everything we needed was provided and the home was very spacious. We look forward to returning in the near future!

When we drove up to the house it met all our expectations and more!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby, best friends and I booked the home for a birthday celebration and long weekend. The long weekend was much needed and we were extremely excited about our stay. The bedrooms were spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. We used the grill twice and it worked great. Having the boat slip was extra nice. We put the boat in the water as soon as we got there, made some cocktails and went and sat on the dock and watched shooting stars as we laughed and had a grand time. We decided that next year we will definitely do this more than the one time and renting this house would be our only way to go! Thanks for fantastic time!! BTW-Charles was fab when it came to calling him with questions!!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

There were a couple of snafus when we first got there. The directions as to where the key would be on our phone app wasn't correct and there was nothing said about having to go to the lake door to get in, but that was an easy fix. The house is spacious, well decorated and an absolutely beautiful view! Close to town. We enjoyed out stay so much, we booked in for December !

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.
