Comfortable cabin but things to know.

All in all it's a cute cozy cabin in a fairly secluded area. The cabin is comfortable and in the woods but potential renters should know it's a walk to to the water and that access to the water is through a neighbors yard. There's just a sliver of a view of the water. We love to cook and found the main burner of the stove didn't work and there were no pot holders which after getting burned did cause some frustration. The outside lights didn't work and I had to put the burner for the grill back together to get it to work. There was no screen in the kitchen door and deck door and the remaining screen door was broken so all of that contributed to a bug issue inside the house. Not a big deal since I spent my summers as a youth in a cabin much more rustic but the bugs were a problem for my wife. If these things were fixed and you don't mind not being on the water it's a good little place to spend your vacation.
Owner's Response: Guess it's time for our end of summer tune-up! Would like to clarify that most houses on Watauga Lake, because the lake is in the mountains, have a steap decline to access the lake. As is the case with our cabin. But, conviently, the Community Cove, with EASY access to the water, where we keep our kayaks, is only about 300 yards from the cabin. The Community Cove is owned by the community. Walking or parking there does NOT require crossing someone's property!
Wondering who in the heck would misplace the pot holders...we remain dedicated to offering our guests a comfortable and affordable stay on beautiful Watauga Lake.
