Casa Lago is located on a cove above pristine Watauga Lake with a Large Covered Boat Dock, sundeck and swim ladder. Surrounded by the beautiful Appalachian mountains of NE Tennessee and approximately 15 miles from Boone, NC and another 5 miles to Blowing Rock. We are also close to Bristol and Johnson City TN.

Lake Watauga is the 3rd cleanest recreational lake in the country. It is also extremely scenic with the majority of the lake's 106 miles of shore protected by national forest

Since we were also renters we know what it’s like not to have a corkscrew, etc. We have tried to include everything you need including linens, dishes, kitchen gadgets, etc.

If you don't have your own water toys, Watauga Lake also has excellent marinas that rent pontoon, power boats, & tubes.

· Snow Skiing in Winter

Attention to Detail!

Casa Lago is the perfect relaxing get- away spot. Our family visited Watauga Lake for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Casa Lago is a clean and comfortable home situate on a quiet cove at Watauga Lake. Every effort was made to make our stay as comfortable as possible, from the carefully-noted driving directions to the fully-equipped kitchen, spacious rooms, lovely deck furniture and fire pit area. The vista of the lake from the boat house deck was one of our favorite aspects of this home. We also enjoyed the walking trails and took in all the abundant nature around us! We saw birds of prey, hummingbirds, geese, fish and butterflies just to name a few. Inside, the furnishings and beds were very comfortable and each room offered plenty of hanging and storage space for our belongings. The owners clearly take very good care of this property and we are grateful to them for letting us share their home for a very special family time. We hope to return sometime soon! The Jones Family, Baltimore MD

Property is beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to this area and we loved it! This cabin is wonderful! It has everything that you would need and is clean and very well maintained. The pictures that are posted on the internet is what you will see. The family enjoyed the the kayaks, canoe and paddleboard along with the ping pong table in the garage!! I enjoyed working with the owner and knew he was just a telephone call away should I have a problem. Our family is already talking about another trip and this is the first place we would like to book!

Casa Lago, A wonderful place to play and relax.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at Casa Lago. The setting of the cabin was fantastic as it blended with the mountains and Lake Watauga. We have so many beautiful memories of the views of the mountains, lake and the Appalachian Trail. It doesn't matter whether you’re young, old, a hard core hiker and professional photographer or just like to take long walks and photos, there is something for everyone. The cabin was fantastic and your always 45 minutes away from everything (inside joke but almost true). We highly recommend this unique getaway.

Everything We Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Casa Lago. Beautiful cabin! House had everything we needed. When internet access was out one phone call to Mitch and it was fixed in 10 minutes. House is isolated from others which was perfect for us. No noisy neighbors! Dock was first class and the canoe and kayaks were appreciated. Highest recommendation!
