Our home has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation in style! Two nearby boat ramps and your own private dock in the backyard. Two large porches and a waterside gazebo offer plenty of space for outdoor relaxing and dining. Our lot slopes gently to the water which makes it easy to walk to the dock... plenty of room for kids to play and explore. Enjoy the hammock or the porch swing on the dock while the kids swim in our protected cove. FREE USE OF OUR 'OLD TOWN' 3-PERSON CANOE FOR GUESTS.
All towels, linens, dishes, and cooking utensils provided. We've tried to create a quiet peaceful, atmosphere where you can spend time with friends and family, with plenty of things to do together. Play a board game or read a book and relax. Or just sit out on the screened porch at night and listen to the symphony of frogs and crickets. We also have a nice home theater system, for watching movies or listening to music on DVD/CD. 'Kingsford' BBQ grill (charcoal) available for guest use.
ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR LAKEFRONT RENTALS ON LAKE WEDOWEE... we have continued to add new amenities each year for the benefit of our guests! Recently, the house, decks and dock got a completely new look and we added a nice porch swing down on the dock as well as swings for the kids on the lower deck. Last year, the house got a new Flat Screen T.V. to enhance our home theater system so you can enjoy your movies, music, etc. We've also added new linens, furnishings and other amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. FOR 2015, WE HAVE UPGRADED OUR PONTOON BOAT TO A 20 FOOT SYLVAN SUNCHASER WITH 75 HP MERCURY 4-STROKE MOTOR... THE BOAT IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION AND THE MOTOR IS DEPENDABLE, QUIET AND FUEL-EFFICIENT!
Enjoy the double hammock near the water's edge and Adirondack chairs or porch swing on the dock for relaxing by the lake. Our cove is the perfect spot for kids to swim in the lake, right off the dock. We also have 'Kingsford' charcoal grill on the front porch... as well as beautiful outdoor furniture on the screened porch. The large screened porch is everyone's favorite gathering place, but there are more decks and porches to enjoy, including a dining gazebo by the water with a picnic table. Our 'Old Town' 3-person canoe is also available for our guests use.
OUR 20 FOOT PONTOON BOAT IS AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL BY OUR HOUSEGUESTS ONLY... AT THE BEST RATE AVAILABLE ON THE LAKE!!!
I'm always available by phone, text, or email.
***Due to demand, Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends are 3 nights minimum and must include pontoon boat rental. Summer rentals are weekly (Saturday to Saturday) and must include pontoon boat rental. August weekend rentals are 2 night minimum and must include pontoon boat rental. This means you must rent the pontoon boat along with the house during these dates.

For comparison, the local marina charges $400 plus tax per day for boat rental and you can't keep their boat overnight. Our guests are very happy with the package deal we offer as you get a beautiful lake house and very nice pontoon boat for much less than it would cost just to rent a boat!
