Watauga Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5+ bathrooms, sleeps 10

Thrasher's Nest is a very nice luxury cabin towering over Watauga Lake in Butler, TN with great views, boat slip, dock, hot tub, Foosball table, covered parking, gas grill and more. It is located very close to countless amenities. This home comfortably sleeps 10. Downstairs master bedroom has king bed and adjoins master bath with jacuzzi tub and luxurious shower with seat. Another downstairs bedroom has queen bed with closet you can find pac-n-play.

Middle floor bathroom has another large jacuzzi tub with luxurious shower. Upstairs bedroom has 2 queen beds and that is where you'll find a half-bath off the game loft with the playstations and foozball table.

This cabin has 3 private bedrooms, a loft with a day bed, 2 full bathrooms, and a 1/2 bathroom. If you have young children or babies, we have all of the gear you will need (high chair, pack and play, etc..) and we allow pets.

Watauga lake is the third cleanest lake in the nation and offers great fishing and boating. Almost all of the lake's shoreline is Cherokee National Forest and therefore not able to be developed. Thrasher's Nest is located on a quiet, less used, part of the lake making it perfect for a quite, relaxing getaway.

Thrasher nest is located only 30 minutes away from Boone NC, Blowing Rock NC, Banner Elk NC, and Johnson City TN. Close by attractions and activities include: Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock, Sugar and Beech Ski Resorts, Linville Caverns and falls, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, Bristol Motor Speedway, and many more. This is a rental home you will be coming back to over and over again. Find Thrasher's Nest on Facebook!

About alakecabin4u

Love canoeing, kayaking, hiking, exploring and skiing. Great area for all those types activities.

alakecabin4u purchased this cabin in 2008

Why alakecabin4u chose Watauga Lake

I luckily fell upon this area a few years ago and fell in love with it. The best of all worlds - fishing, hiking, caveing (I think its called spelunking), swimming off the dock, boating, and Grandfather Mountain. On the other hand, my wife likes the shopping at the outlet mall in Blowing Rock and the unique shops there and in Boone.

What makes this cabin unique

All year round activities and sports. From water skiing to snow tubing to fall foliage. Watauga lake is a great family adventure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful Home! We loved the location and the views were incredible. October was perfect with the leaves changing. We came in from PA and have never been to this part of the country. We were very surprised how clear the water is and how nice the weather was this time of year. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home! We hope to be back soon.

Thrasher’s Nest – The best view of Watauga Lake

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was wonderful! Clean, beautiful and spacious. We had six adults, two children, and three dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and still enjoy each other’s company. It was everything we hoped for! This is a great family getaway. The cabins amenities, cleanliness, layout were outstanding. Kitchen was fully stocked and Rental Manager was very prompt in responses and receipts/information.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. Would HIGHLY recommend this rental cabin for a relaxing vacation.

The home was nice. It was really high up on the mountain-side - a lot farther from the water than we expected. We accidentally parked out boat at the wrong boat slip because it wasn't marked well - or maybe we were at the right slip....I thought the home was ON the water...it's not. However, it was a nice home and the kids were able to use the upstairs' bedroom/bath for their own sleeping and hang out space.

Owner's Response: Yes, Thrashers Nest is a fine custom built cabin with lots of bells and whistles to enjoy. You are welcome to use any of our docks at the base of the mountain road side parking makes the drive down less than a minute if you don't enjoy the walk down. Building isn't permitted next to the protected shore line of one of America's cleanest lake, nor would you capture the views seen at alakecabin4u from way down in the gully, you would have to get mtn top to see that gorgeous view. I thank you very much for your kind words and know should you ever choose to return that you can expect a return guest discount too. Peace to you and yours, Melody

Best View on the Lake!

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay at Thrasher's Nest! The house was everything the pictures showed, and our view of the lake and Cherokee Natl Forest was the best! The drive from lake level to the cabin was STEEP - three or four switchbacks - but that's what gave us the incredible view! Once down at the bottom, we enjoyed the lake and kayaks and canoes off the dock. I wish there had been a little more lake frontage for us to take advantage of (tough to squeeze 6 of us on the dock for sunning/fishing!), but still, a beautiful trip! I would have given the trip a 5-star, had it not been for the tougher accessibility to the lake, and the fact that there is no yard to speak of for the kids to run around outside of the cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words and compliments. Yes, Thrashers Nest is a gorgeous mountain cabin, it is a steep climb up but paved to your back door. You're right, the drive is worth it to get those beautiful views. Thrashers Nest dock is huge with eight boat slips where 25 people could stand on it. I'm afraid you used one of the neighbors docks, no harm though as we are friends with everyone up there and Im sure no body minded.
Please plan a return trip soon, we can explore other cabins with more yard if thats something you'd prefer. With 10 cabins to choose from I'm sure we can find something thats not just wooded and more grass and field. Thanks again, look forward to hearing from you soon.

June 2012 stay

  • 4 of 5
The cabin was lovely, suited our needs and seemed organized. The driveway is a challenge and adventure!! Appreciated the ease in paperwork and payment procedure.
Two complaints -
1) The downstairs bathroom shower handle is loose so a struggle to turn on and hard to adjust temperature.
2) Hard to adjust the air conditioner to keep the upper level cool enough without freezing out those sleeping on the lowest level. We tried closing vents and doors without avail.

Owner's Response: Im sorry you had problems. I have found if you keep the upstairs ceiling fan and the AC fan running the temps even out nicely. Also, I wish you had called me about the shower handle. It is repaired and works fine, now. Glad you had some fun away from home at the lake.
