It doesn’t get prettier than this. One of our guests, described Watauga Lake as Lake Geneva in the NorthEast corner of Tennesee. Our house sits atop of the mountains in Appalachia at 4500 feet. Because we are in the Cherokee National Forest, there are very few homes on the lake which makes the views prettier than normal. In addition, the lake gets warm early in the season. You can swim from April through late October. It is a short walk to the private marina and gazebo, where there is a private covered marina; Fish Springs will bring a rental boat to an open slip for you if you'd like or you can bring one yourself. In the winter, it is an amazing home located 20 miles from a handful of skiing mountains including Sugar, Beech, and Appalachian. Our home, completed in late November 2009, looks like something straight out of a movie with driftwood trees inside the house as well as indoor and outdoor water falls. You can be busy every minute, or simply sit by the water's edge and relax.

Perfect private getaway in the mountains!
What an amazing experience for our first time staying in a chalet in the mountains! Home was in prestine condition, the location was perfect and private with beautiful views and the owner was extremely helpful and responsive with any questions prior and during our stay. If your looking for a great place to make family memories, this is the place. We made many during our stay and will definitely be back to make more!
Adam - We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay and that we were able to help you with a last minute get away. We love itnup there in the fall and can’t wait to get there this weekend. Look forward to having you and your family back. Tom & Heidi - Owners, Whispering Pines
Unique mountain cabin with lake access
Unique mountain cabin
Whispering Pines is an unusual and beautiful property. There are trees and waterfalls both inside and out! Every window, deck, and porch connects you to nature and stunning views.
You will enjoy your stay, we did, loved it!
Cathy - so glad you enjoyed your stay. You're and your family are welcome back any time.
Beautiful home, ALWAYS my first choice!
My husband is from a small town in Tennessee very close to Watauga Lake. When we visit, this home is always my first choice!!! It's always clean and comfortable and Tom is super accommodating. We've stayed in several homes at the lake, but Whispering Pines is always our first pick! Perfect in every way!!!
Thank you Tonya for the kind words about Whispering Pines. It's our favorite as well :) So glad you had a great time again. You and the family are welcome any time.
Outstanding lake home with gorgeous views!
I have rented many homes in the past through VRBO and this one by far was the best! It was super clean. The kitchen was stocked better than most rental homes. The layout of the house was perfect. We traveled with 5 kids and 3 adults. With a bedroom on each level we had more than enough room. My kids loved the loft area!! We were all able to gather for dinner and eat together. The outside eating area was awesome. What a view!! We came to hike and we got lots of great trail hikes in along the AT. At night, we all had plenty of space to spread out. The lake was an extra bonus. The kids loved to fish and kayak at night. The owner was super helpful. He was always available by phone or text to help. We came to get away from it all and enjoy the scenery and hike and we were not disappointed. The house is so spacious and beautiful! We hated to leave.....
Truly a great cabin to stay at and one that I would recommend to anyone. It's furnished and stocked just like somebody lived there themselves 24/7 with no details being left out. Beautiful and warm/comfortable on the inside and great views on the outside. My family and I had a great time and plan on making a return trip next year. It was spacious and up to date while retaining that authentic mountain feel that everyone is looking for. The owners were also friendly and easy to communicate with. A+ stay
Justin - so glad you loved the house, decor and the views. As we always say It is our little slice of heaven in the mountains of NE TN just a short walk to Watauga Lake. One local describes it as Lake Geneva in Northeast Tennessee. We agree and look forward to having you and your family back.
We loved the place!!!
Excellent property adjacent to one of the most beautiful, majestic lakes in the entire country.
Owner was very accomdating and provided precision directions to this remote property, and detailed description of the house proper and nearby amenities. The property is well cared for and clean. There was no trouble using the development marina...this was a huge plus for our group as we docked boat there for the entire stay.
Hints: arrive during daylight hours. Property is blissfully remote and you will need to follow owner provided instructions. You will want to enjoy the scenery anyway.
Last 100 yards of the driveway is steep...be prepared.
