PREMIER LAKEFRONT MOUNTAIN CABIN - RESERVE NOW FOR FALL COLORS & SKIING!!!

Watauga Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible beds, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8-12)

Waters Edge is a luxurious, new (finished July '07) custom built log cabin on the shore of beautiful, sparkling Watauga Lake. With 106 miles of shoreline and fabulous coves and islands to explore, use the canoe and kayak provided or bring your own boat and keep it at your very own private dock that comes with the cabin. Rental boats are also available at Fish Springs Marina, with a $10.00 discount for guests of Waters Edge.

If you have to stay in touch with the office, don't fret. Hook up to the wireless network high speed internet, plus make unlimited long distance calls within the continental U.S.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES GALORE!!!: There are plenty of activities close by including horseback riding, biking, mountain biking, white water rafting, snow skiing and tubing, sledding, ice skating, hiking (including the Appalachian Trail just 15 minutes away), fishing, golfing, shopping/strolling in Boone/Blowing Rock, or sightseeing and other activities at many outdoor parks anywhere from 10 minutes to 45-60 minutes away. Grandfather Mountain, Chimney Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway are a few of the more well known destinations, but there are plenty more to be discovered. Bring your bikes and ride on Sink Valley Road right in front of Waters Edge, or transport them to biking trails in the area, including one near the Mast General Store outside of Boone, North Carolina and the Virginia Creeper Trail out of Abingdon, Virginia to the north. And if none of that interests you, just sit back on one of the four decks and take in the beautiful scenery of the lake and mountains.

NOT SO OUDOOR ACTIVITIES: For those who are not into outdoor activities, there are plenty of other activities. The Butler Museum tells the story of Butler, The Town that Wouldn't Drown! The town used to be at what is now the bottom of Watauga Lake. Old structures, signs and roads are explored by avid scuba divers. In Boone, NC near Appalachian State University and in Blowing Rock, NC, there are plenty of shops with arts, pottery, clothing and collectibles. There are also quite a few excellent restaurants. For bigger city shoppers, Johnson City, TN is not far away. Before you get to Johnson City is Elizabethton which has its own set of smaller town shops, restaurants and even an oldies car show downtown on the weekend nights in the warmer months.

YOUR VACATION ESCAPE: Escape to Waters Edge for a true retreat in the mountains of Tennessee and nearby North Carolina! The lake and national forest are at your doorstep. This lake home is truly waterfront with its own dock in the backyard. Bring your own boat or rent one nearby,. Keep it at the dock which is just steps from the cabin. Join our group of guests who say Waters Edge is the best cabin on Watauga Lake, and keep comin' back!

Fall colors abound around Waters Edge and in the vicinity. Panoramic views are found in any direction you drive.

During the winter, there are 4 ski slopes within a 40 to 50-minute drive. Enjoy the challenge and bustle of the slopes during the day, then escape to your own private mountain lake home. You will easily be able to unwind and relax in front of the home theater system, stone fireplace, Jacuzzi, or fire ring by the lake.

The calendar fills up quickly and well in advance. Make your reservation today and come escape and relax at WATERS EDGE!!!

About Scott Russell

My wife and I are environmental consultants in Florida who love to escape to the Appalachian mountains. Good quality lake water is important to us in our profession and our free time. Those are prime reasons why we chose to build on the shores of Watauga Lake - the mountains (elevation of 2000 feet at our home) and absolutely great water quality. We enjoy it all at Waters Edge - all outdoor activities, relaxing in the cabin, cooking with family and friends, and enjoying the mountains. When we leave Waters Edge, we are saddened but already planning our next trip back.

We have made Waters Edge a truly premier cabin for us and our guests. We have carefully planned and selected everything you will need to enjoy your stay. We have it cleaned and maintained meticulously to keep it in that premier shape. We are sure you will notice it and it will add to your enjoyment.

Scott Russell purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Scott Russell chose Watauga Lake

We chose Watauga Lake out of twelve lakes we were looking at in the southeast because of its elevation, its great water quality, and lack of crowding. Sixty percent of the watershed is occupied by the Cherokee National Forest and will never be developed. There are no weekend or summertime boat jams on Watauga. We also wanted mountains and views of them from the cabin. On Watauga we got it all! It is the perfect vacation lake home for year round enjoyment. There are indoor and outdoor activities at the home or close by during all four seasons. Our home is in the country, but convenient to the cities. Once you experience our lake home, no others will do!

Successful Reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to say that my family and friends were all very impressed with your beautiful home when I hosted one of our bar-b-ques in for our reunion. It was spacious and open and so very relaxing for our vacation/reunion. There was plenty of space for family if they needed to stay the night and the kitchen was a dream to cook in as well as a wonderful gathering place during our stay!! I would definitely recommend it for family gatherings to a romantic get away!! I hope we have it in TN again because if close...we may just have to stay here again!! Thanks for a great, memorable reunion that my family will be talking about for a long time!!!

Amazing house and view, gorgeous lake!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a week in August. The house layout was ideal, with plenty of room for 12 guests. We never felt crowded and there was lots of space for everyone to hang out together or enjoy some quiet time. The interior of the house was really beautiful and clean, as was the lake. If you're looking for a peaceful escape and a beautiful mountain home, you should consider this property!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful, large and looks brand new. I am picky about things being clean and I will tell you it was spotless! It is right on the water so when we were not using the kayak, canoe, or swimming we could sit on on of the three decks and look out over the lake and enjoy the peacefulness. We cooked every night and also used the gas grill. The kitchen had everything you need including lots of dishes, pots, pans, baking pans, utensils, spices etc....It was a great place for family time. The kids and adults loved the pool table. I can't say enough good things about this house or the owner. Scott was very professional and easy to work with. We rented a pontoon boat from Fish Springs Marina for the day and had a great time. We also rode bikes on the Virginia Creeper Trail one day which is only about 40 minutes away. There is plenty to do here or do nothing at all because it is so peaceful and beautiful. One night we went outside to watch two beavers carrying wood from the fire pit to the water and back and forth and while standing there watching a deer ran right past us! Wildlife at its best. Don't hesitate to stay here, you will not want to leave!

A Magical Christmas

  • 5 of 5
Our family arrived the Eve of December 20th, it snowed that night. We woke up to a beautiful blanket of white snow the next day (December 21, 2012); it wasn't the end of the world, it was the beginning of the most wonderful vacation we have ever experienced. It was 9 of us (My husband and our adult children with their significant others). We were all extremely comfortable at the Lake House. It felt like a second home, a second "dream home".

We really connected as a family, enjoying all the amenities of this beautiful cabin. We roasted marshmallows, played board games, sat by the fire and told stories and ventured out on a canoe ride down the beautiful and peaceful Watauga Lake.
It was a "Memorable and Magical" Christmas!
