Why Beth Yother chose Wedowee
Fishermen flock to Wedowee, Alabama, to try their luck at Harris Lake. While Wedowee, with a 2010 Census-reported population of 823, doesn’t offer much else to do, quite a few spots within a two-hour drive from Wedowee allow visitors to explore the area's history. Wedowee sits in northeastern Alabama, 93 miles southeast of Birmingham and 88 miles southwest of Atlanta. Recreation The 24-mile-long Harris Lake, also called Lake Wedowee, features a variety of bass, including largemouth, spotted, striped and white. Other fish include bluegill, catfish, crappie, yellow perch and redear sunfish. Grab your pole and locate a spot from a boat or off a bank or pier along the lake. The Little Tallapoosa River and the Tallapoosa River supply water for the lake, which was created when the R.L. Harris dam was finished in 1983. Visitors can find more recreation at Cheaha State Park ( in Delta, Alabama, 18 miles northwest of Wedowee. Activities to enjoy include hiking, mountain biking and lake swimming. The park is within the Talladega National Forest and reaches 2,407 feet above sea level, making it the highest point in Alabama, according to the park’s website. Museums Two history museums located 36 miles northwest of Wedowee in Anniston, Alabama, take visitors around the world. The Anniston Museum of Natural History ( features seven permanent exhibit halls, including the animals and mummies of ancient Egypt, environments of Africa and the birds of the Americas.

Wedowee fun with the family
Everything was better than expected. We could not have had a better time.
Thank you Beth.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking such great care of our home. We are thrilled you loved Alabama and we welcome you back anytime! Best,
Well kept vacation home
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The home is well maintained and equipped and we found it clean on arrival. The location is private and quiet. During the week days we practically had the lake to ourselves. We would definitely consider returning to this home in the future.
House was charming and as advertised. Beds were comfortable. If we come back to Lake Wedowee we will rent again.
Awesome lake home
We had an awesome stay. The view and setting was spectacular and the house was extremely well equipped and clean...first class!
Great family getaway!!!
My family of 8 was looking for a long weekend get away and this was perfect place for us. We enjoyed the lake and fishing right off the property dock. Awesome views from the back deck. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Would love to come back for a longer stay....
Great vacation house
We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful house in a peaceful setting. The house was comfortable and well kept up and provided everything we needed for a relaxing New Years gathering with friends. We highly recommend it.
Thank you for your feedback on our home and for being such great guests. We hope you will consider coming back during the spring or summer and exploring the beautiful Lake Wedowee!
The property is located on the downtown Wedowee side of town, minutes from the grocery store and downtown Wedowee, and close to both marinas and approximately 1 hour from Auburn, AL and 1.4 hours from both Atlanta and Birmingham (located on the side of the lake closest to the interstates). The home is located about 20 minutes from the beautiful Cheaha State Park, which features the highest point in Alabama, and also the Talledega National Forest. Fantastic views, hiking, fall foliage, and other activities. Young children can also mine for gems at Cheaha State Park.
