About Watauga Lake & River vacation cabin rentals

Our family was searching for a quiet second home in the beautiful mountains of NC and TN. We came across the Watauga Lake area and decided this was a little piece of heaven. Our home was nestled in the trees and we immediately knew this was the place for us and our family. For several years we have been exploring and enjoying our cabin. We have just decided to start renting it out to others so they too can get the wonderful experience that we have had.

Watauga Lake & River vacation cabin rentals purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Watauga Lake & River vacation cabin rentals chose Watauga Lake

The views of the mountains are fantastic, the wildlife at your doorstep, the 3rd cleanest lake on the East Coast. So many things to do, every weekend can be a different addventure. close to all the amenities that you would need, yet secluded enough to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

What makes this cabin unique

Private, secluded and easy to find. Nestled in the woods surrounded by trees and mountain views. Most guests comment on the wildlife they see when during their stay. Lots of deer, wild turkeys and birds of prey found in this area. Great for hikers and family who love to explore.

Amazing place. Incredibly secluded. EASY TO ACCESS

  • 5 of 5
Our small group had an incredible stay at Happy Ours! We are currently planning our second trip there for this Fall, and we are especially excited because we have heard from the owners about some of the renovations they just finished (including adding another 1,000 square feet of living space on the 1st floor which means we’re bringing more people this time around!). Right off the bat, during our stay in the Spring, we noticed the private road was easily accessible from the main highway we were travelling on. Our small SUV easily made it up the drive way, but we have heard that since then it has also been paved and the pad has been expanded for more cars and turnaround space. We also appreciated the outdoor, motion sensor lighting for we arrived late evening and as the cabin is entirely engulfed by trees, we otherwise would have had a very difficult time unpacking the car. It’s about 10 minutes from Lake Watauga and 15 minutes from a great local restaurant we ate at called “Captain’s Table” which sits on the water (amazing fish and chips!).
The inside of the cabin was very pleasant; It has everything that they advertise in terms of rooms, bathrooms, and accomodations. The living room and kitchen had a very gorgeous “cabiny” feel but the entire place still had all the amenities we hoped for. All we had to take care of was food and toiletries!
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Master Suite Loft. It was very comfortable and clean, as was everyone’s experience with the other areas of the cabin. Everyone got a good night’s rest while we were there.
We were struck by the view from the living room that you can also enjoy from the deck accessible from both the kitchen and living room. One morning during our stay we used the Keurig provided to make coffee and sat out on the deck relishing the view. That night we also used the provided gas grill for dinner!
We went hiking on the Appalachian Trial while we were there and also rented a pontoon boat. Both activities were located very close to the Happy Ours cabin. The boating dock we rented from was located at the same place as the Captain’s Table restaurant I mentioned earlier. Very reasonable rates and we all had an absolute blast!
I would highly recommend Happy Ours cabin for all types of groups looking for a retreat in the mountains. It’s a highly secluded cabin but is very accessible. It’s located close to many attractions. And it’s a very clean cabin that has more than enough space for the amount of people

2nd Time Staying

  • 4 of 5
This was our 2nd time staying here. The first time it was just my wife and I, this time we brought our two girls ages 8 and 5. There was plenty of enough room for everyone. We stayed for eight days and it never felt cramped. Half way through our stay we had a friend and her 2 kids come up for 2 nights. It still never felt cramped. The kids enjoyed the downstairs which is being updated from our first stay there. This is a good location between Boone and the lake. It is very close to the lake and not to bad of a drive to Boone, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, and other towns. Everything is supplied except for food and soap. Its calm and relaxing and nicely secluded off the road. The driveway is steep but now there is plenty of room to park and maneuver at the top. Like I said this is my wife and I's second time staying here, if we didn't like it we wouldn't have came back. I have a service dog and the owners and rental co. were very cooperative and were very understanding. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the wifi-internet was working for us. It showed up on our phones and computer but never pulled up the websites. I have no doubt if I called and mentioned it would have been resolved. We had our wifi jetpack and was able to use that. Everything listed is there and then some. Very happy with Happy Ours.

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your stay. know you are welcome back anytime. And yes, you are right, the wifi works great at that cabin, had you called we would have helped you. There's a wifi switch that has to be reset from time to time mentioned in the wifi direction pamphlet. You probably just missed it. Hope to hear from you all soon.

Comfortable Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5
Booked the cabin for my friends and I to stay in so we could attend a wedding at a nearby retreat. All of my friends were impressed with the place I found- the Happy Ours Cabin. The cabin was cute and fully stocked (but bring your own shampoo and soap). It worked great for my group of friends, but I can see it also working well for a family getaway. Not great for people who can't walk up and down stairs, though. The driveway is hard to drive up, but if you give it some gas, you can get up there. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to be secluded in nature and nearby some beautiful scenery- waterfalls, lakes, look-outs.

Owner's Response: Hey Emily,
Thank you for your kind words. They are much appreciated. Glad you all enjoyed your stay. It is a secluded, very private paved to your back door place. True, the very short driveway is steep. If you feel you can't climb it, park at the bottom and take the short walk up. especially during winter months with sleet and snow.
Your welcome back anytime, so let me hear from you soon.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to Watauga Lake and our third stay with Melody. Need I say more. You get exact what is advertised and that is more than I can say for most cabin rentals. I've done this many times and this is the first time, my cabin was completely clean and equiped with all the needed stuff. My wife loved it too. Great beds, comfortable furnishings and very private and secluded. Easy road access to Boone, Blowing Rock, Beach Mtn and Bristol. We went every where Melody sent us in our welcome package. She does a great job with all of her cabins. Already have a weekend reserved in Feb for a little ski tubing.

Clean cabin with beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
To my suprise, this place was great (espcially for the price) I was very impressed with the home, its condition and furnishings. Beds slept great and paved to your back door. Close and convenient to hwy 321 so its easy to get to neighboring towns with shopping, restaurants and activities. We rented a boat Saturday becuase it got as high as 70 and for mid Oct that was nice. Melody's welcome information was right on the money too. She's a pleasure to work with and she knows we'll be back.
