About Susan Pohl

I currently split my time between Florida and Tennessee -yup, I'm a snowbird. I discovered Watauga Lake in 2010 when friends invited us up for a visit. It was love at first site! The fact that the Cherokee National Forest surrounds most of the lake makes it that much more beautiful and unspoiled. After spending many summers on Cape Cod and fighting all the tourist traffic, this seemed like paradise...and it is! I have discovered a place that I can truly relax.

Susan Pohl purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Susan Pohl chose Tennessee

The views from this house are amazing and it just felt 'right' when this house came up for sale...so now I own it and hope to share some of what Watauga Lake offers to other people. I have been here for several summers now, and it has proven to be as perfect a family experience as I could hope for - as well as a great place for friends to visit. This is a place to have good times and make good memories!

What makes this cabin unique

I fell in love with the views, hands down! The house is cute and a little quirky. The inside staircase is narrow and winds like a lighthouse staircase, but the house is cute! (There is an outside stairway that goes to the second level also). And the bath house between the dock and the house is so convenient! It is an awesome piece of property - it just feels good to be on the deck there relaxing and taking it all in!

Special place, Beautiful and spotless 🌟

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a week, it's a special place that must be seen. From the amazing lake and mountains views of every angle of the house to the house itself. Not to mention the close town of Boone which is adorable. And as far as cleaness it doesnt get much better than what we experienced here. Susan and Salvatore, cant say enough about them, available at anytime and with loads of information . We'll be back because there's so much to explore! Had an amazing time. Love

The house was fully equipped with everything we needed! The view is breath taking! We would love to stay again sometime in the future!

We had a very nice time and appreciated the privacy. As it turned out, this was the perfect spot to escape Hurricane Harvey! Thanks Susan for your gracious hospitality. Bob & Sandy

PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by a beautiful basket of goodies! So thoughtful! The house is so perfect. We kayaked everyday! Happy hour started early since siting on the deck watching the birds made life so easy. This house is in a great location to everything but yet far away that all you hear is crickets and birds. The pups also loved there early morning cool walks.

We will be back but for a longer time. Thank you for sharing your home!

The house and location were perfect. Our family had a great time and we plan on coming back again!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to find a bountiful gift basket and a home that was very clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. We only had to bring our clothes and food, everything else was provided. We enjoyed a beautiful view while relaxing outside on the huge porch or from the inside looking through the many picture windows.

The owner is very nice, easy to work with and helpful. We enjoyed kayaking everyday and saw fish jumping out of the water, herons, king fisher birds and deer.

We'll be back for sure!

What a great week at The Lighthouse Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week at The Lighthouse Cottage! We couldn't have been more pleased with the lovely home/cottage and the remarkable lake/mountain views. Thank you for all the attention to detail and amenities that made the week so very relaxing... from the welcome basket to the DVD library...fully stocked kitchen...kayaks etc., we thoroughly enjoyed the week and just couldn't get over the amazing views from virtually every room and the sprawling back deck! This lovely property is a real stress-buster!

Map

Car: necessary

Access all the lake has to offer right from the dock at the house. Swim, fish, or boat right from the dock. Boat launches,swimming beaches, hiking trails  and picnic sites are located within the Cherokee National Forest and are available for public use. The Appalachian Trail crosses the lake at its southwestern tip. Hike the Appalachian Trail or one of the other hiking trails available and discover waterfalls and even more gorgeous views. Parking is available for the hike to Laurel Falls is just north of Hampton off of Route 321. Private marinas provide boat rental, boat mooring and boat launching facilities. Watauga Lake is perfect for almost any type of boating -  from houseboats to sailboats to ski and wakeboard boats to canoes and kayaks - they are all at home on the lake. If you feel the need for a little “civilization”, Boone, NC is just 30 minutes away and Blowing Rock just another five miles or so. On the Tennessee side, Elizabethton is just 40 minutes and Johnson City, TN just beyond that.
