Watauga Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms (each w/ private bath), two half baths, 1 sleeping loft, sleeps 8-9

See the video tour at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90OCkJXIUo4

Stay at the Watauga Lake vacation rental home with the most private shoreline! Whipkins Cove has more than 300 feet... and it's swimmable. Plus you get a private dock during your stay.

Lake Watauga Luxury: Who said you can't have luxury when you're lakeside? Whipkins Cove comes complete with leather couches, plush bedding, 5 flat-screen TVs, an extensive DVD/CD collection (hundreds to view), Wii gaming system and more. Foodies will love the well-appointed kitchen. In addition to the stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and gas-burning stove, Whipkins Cove has All-Clad pots and pans (including stock pots large enough to boil 20 ears of corn), Wusthof professional-grade knives, 4-slot toaster, pancake griddle, stainless steel mixing bowls, large food-prep area and more. All nine guests can comfortably gather around the solid wood dining room table, while comfortable handmade Adirondack chairs beckon visitors to pause on the decks outside.

Great gatherings: This is a great place for multi-generational family gatherings. There is ample gathering space for everyone to share meals or a movie, but also plenty of spread-out space throughout the three-story home and extensive collection of porches and decks. Sorry though, this is not a house for wild parties or load-'em-in breaks from college. Also, no pets. An ill-mannered dog has forced us to rethink our pet policy.

Watauga Lake house for all seasons: This is a home for all seasons! Springtime brings new flowers, active wildlife, crisp mornings and cool nights. Summer, of course, offers swimming and fishing right off the private shoreline. Autumn’s tapestry of vibrant reds, yellows and orange paint the hillsides in breathtaking hues. And in winter, you can experience Watauga Lake at its most peaceful. You might even get to see snow falling on the glassy winter lake as you nestle by the fire indoors. You’ll certainly find snow each winter on the ski slopes within a 45-minute drive across the Tenn./NC state line. The cabin’s two-story wrap-around decks and expansive lower decks give guests plenty of room to spread out. Six-plus acres of woods surrounds the cabin and delights nature lovers with its mature trees, fern-and-moss-covered embankments and striking rock outcroppings. More than 300 feet of private shoreline give guests so much to explore – possibly with wildlife sightings of beaver, deer, herons and black bears.

Guestbook comments from the owner
First of all, I would like to say thank you for accommodating all of our families this weekend. We had so much fun, from swimming around the cove, riding on the boats and just relaxing around the cabin. I would highly recommend rending a boat for a couple days and exploring the lake. I also recommend making a bonfire, because our families had a blast making s'mores and just talking around the fire. (Comment written in guest book).

Awesome week at the lake!

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed a wonderful week at Whipkins Cove. With 5 children (4 teenagers) it is always difficult finding suitable accommodations and this was amazing. The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms well designed, the kitchen well-equipped, the decks spacious and the indoor gathering spaces were well-suited for games or reading/downtime. The water is beautiful and a very comfortable swimming temperature when we were there. With little boat traffic in front of the cabin we felt like we had the place to ourselves! We enjoyed the kayacks and exploring the waterways. We certainly certainly could have spent our entire time at Whipkins cove but we also enjoyed Grandfather Mountain, Boone, Blowing Rock, ziplining, hiking, and much more... A favorite of our teenage boys was jumping off cliffs at nearby waterfalls (not for the light of heart) and our 7 year old loved going gem mining.

and no bugs or mosquitoes.Weather was great. People there
so nice and friendly.Lore was so sweet and so helpful and
many things to do not far away.Boone was charming and
a great way to spend an afternoon. We rented a pontoon

and a spectacular day. Views were unbelievable and
the lake was clean and smooth as glass.We brought home
some treasured family memories they will always remember.

10 star weekend.

Pure Serenity

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful week at Whipkins Cove. Lore and her husband have a beautiful cabin on the lake with gorgeous views from every level. This "home away from home" has absolutely everything . From the overstocked kitchen, beautiful furnishings, and the video/book/game library, there's a little something for everyone. The wooden hut by the lake is an added bonus. Fishing poles, tackle box, water toys, life vests, kayaks...you name it, it's in there. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We hope to be back next summer.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation house. It is well appointed with a great lay out for two families. The weather was fantastic. The lake was clean. The little hut by the lake has everything you could want to have next to the lake. Lore was very helpful and available to answer any questions we had. Highly recommended!!!!!
