Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, plus loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6-9

This beautifully appointed, very unique, custom built cabin is available to rent, either nightly or by the week. Aptly named “The Tree House” for the trees, in the house!

Enjoy beautiful lake and mountain views, luxury bedding and all of the comforts of home.

Whether it’s for Summer recreation, Fall foliage or winter skiing, it is a perfect place for a romantic honeymoon, family getaway, couples getaway or family reunion. Located on pristine Watauga Lake, you have access to 106 miles of shoreline and are surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest. The lake and mountain views from this cabin are spectacular.

The Tree House is the perfect place to 'escape' the daily grind and enjoy nature's beauty from the comfort of a well-equipped lakeside cabin. It is a short walk to the private, community marina and gazebo, where you can swim, enjoy a 2 person kayak that is provided, tie up your own boat or jet ski or enjoy a 24 foot Bennington Fish and Cruise Pontoon, for rent exclusively by Tree House guests. You can be busy every minute, or simply sit by the water's edge and relax.

Enjoy the lake, hiking, Grandfather Mountain, the Virginia Creeper Trail, Bristol Caverns, Golf at Red Tail Golf Club, zip line at Off The Grid, go with a guide at Trophy Water Guide Service and fish the trophy trout streams in the area and many more great outdoor activities.

Pet Policy: Well behaved pets are welcome with an extra security deposit of $150, and an additional $25 cleaning fee. Pets must be spayed or neutered, current on all vaccines and treated with some form of topical flee treatment, like Frontline, one week prior to arrival.

About Kim Matlack

For years, my husband and I have been looking for a 4-season place to get 'out of the rat race'. We love the outdoors, and wanted a place to do it all-hike, boat, snow ski, fish, golf, horseback ride....and relax. This past Fall, we finally discovered Watauga Lake and The Tree House. It is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places we have seen. We immediately fell in love with it and hope you will too!

Kim Matlack purchased this cabin in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house has unique personality and character. We loved it! Kimberly and Sam provided excellent service and everything we need is ready in the house. Really, beyond our expectations! The boat is the icing on the cake. We hope to be back!

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to The Tree House on Lake Watauga. Beautiful view, updated amenities, easy access to shopping, trails, skiing, boating, fishing and the list goes on... The best owners that take pride in their amazing cabin they are so gracious to share with their lucky renters. Bring a good book or a good pair of hiking boots; you set the tone of your vacation. We already have our dates saved for next fall to again immerse ourselves in the Appalachian Mountains.

Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on this family vacation. After being evacuated due to hurricane Irma, the owner was more than accommodating. The cabin is beautifully decorated and we really felt like this was our home away from home. We rented the pontoon for the week and went out on to the lake almost every day. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit every night. The only downside was not catching many fish. Next time we will have to hire a guide for the first day. All in all it was fun for the whole family and was a great getaway. We will definitely be back.

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly unique! First and foremost the home is gorgeous. Truly a Tree House! The inside was decorated beautifully and it felt like we were in an exclusive mountain home with an indoor waterfall, fire place and trees that looked like they grew through the roof. Outside they had a waterfall and a fire pit complete with fire wood so we could roast marshmallows. They also had a swing for two that overlooked the Lake. We loved the pontoon and exploring Lake Watagua. Every day was a new adventure. Our dogs loved making friends with Jack, the neighborhood hound dog who was so sweet and adorable. Our dogs couldn't wait to see him. Above all, the Matlack's are responsive and wonderful owners. We loved it so much we already booked it for next year.
