You know we’re big fans of Lake Wedowee here at Bottomley Real Estate Group.  We think this beautiful, clean lake is a little undiscovered gem. Lake Wedowee is a really clean lake and it’s only about an hour from Birmingham and 1.5 hours away from Atlanta.  It’s an Alabama Power lake so they still control a good deal of the shore and they’re currently keeping it natural.  Lake Wedowee reminds us of going to St George Island back in the 1990’s before Marriott moved in and suddenly everyone was buying vacation homes on the Island.  Lake Wedowee, while gorgeous, doesn’t have anyone marketing it.  One day it will happen and prices will get out of control.  But today, Lake Wedowee is still that rare waterfront property that’s located close to large cities but still inexpensive.  If you’d like more information about how you can buy a lot or a home on Lake Wedowee just email us at or call us at 404-245-4960.
