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.

The perfect place to relax and have fun.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable with everything we needed, perfect for families to spend quality time together in a fun atmosphere. Our morning coffee was even better with the view from the front porch. It rained a little, but there were plenty of movies, games, etc to keep us busy. We liked that it was a short trip to town, and we checked out a few antique and re-sale stores. The only problem with our stay is that it ended too soon.
The property is awesome. This stay was our 2nd time. The house is equipped with everything you need. And the owners are great people to rent from. They return your deposit promptly. I highly recommend this property.
Perfect get away!
The house was spacious and tastefully decorated, as well as comfortably designed. It had everything we needed, including peace and quite! It is a place we would love to go back and visit when we could stay more than 3 nights. We all hated to leave! Thank you Captain Cook for sharing such an awesome place!
Great Family Getaway
Everything that we had hoped for in a lake house property for our family vacation.
The lake home is beautiful!
Great place to stay and just get away !
If your staying 3 nights or 2 weeks is a great place !
Spring Break 2018!!
It Was a Spring Break my husband 4 children my niece and myself enjoyed very much. The kayaks canoe and paddle boat was a big hit with the kids. Fishing off the dock was fun for the kids, lots of brim. Relaxing on the covered porch just enjoying some quite time with a cup of coffee. Plenty for my family of 7 to keep us entertained for the week. Thank you for sharing your home.
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.
