We love Watauga Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row that we have stayed with alakecabin4u! This was the 2nd time staying in Bass Bungalow. We absolutely love Watauga Lake. We always bring a boat, the dock is super nice and well maintained. You are steps away from the water and this is the quiet side of the lake. No cell phone service but, we think that's part of what makes it so perfect! Just being able to get away from it all. The owner is so easy to deal with and even called to check to see how our stay was. They have access to a small boat ramp right across from the cabins (about a 5 minute drive around the corner) which is perfect for a small boat, we've brought a 15' and a 17' and have never had problems getting either one in at the boat ramp. Rose, who allows you to park your trailer at her house is very nice as well! We're already talking about next years trip, we can't wait to get back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, so much. It is a quiet place on the lake, no noise and beautiful views. Bring a boat or renting one is highly suggested. It would be a crying shame to go all the way up there and not go out and see every inch of one of America's cleanest and most beautiful lakes. Even though the cell service isn't that great, texting usually works and the place has a landline that guests are welcome to forward their calls. Come stay at the Bass Bungalow and experience a small piece of heaven. Thanks for your kind words words.

Lovely view and great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Loved the fact that the cabin was dog friendly. Pontoon rentals at Fish Springs Marina allow pets. Could not have asked for a better location for fishing and friendly people. Definitely plan a visit to the Watagua Lake Winery it's well worth the $4.00 for a taste testing. Loved the lake and being able to fish right outside the cabin. Let's not forget hiking trails are everywhere. Perfect for that get away to get back in touch with nature. Just be aware cell phones most likely will not work while at the cabin. In my opinion, that was the best part. Note: the cabin does have a phone.

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a great trip. Yes, the local marina's do a great job keeping guests going in their boats. Everyone up there is super nice and yes, the fishing in that area is great and just steps from your front door. Hiking trials are in every direction. The most popular Appalachian Trail crosses Watauga lake so if that what you're looking for then you've found the right place. The Winery is something new and one of the most popular stops now for our guests. Only positive reviews and we hear they offer delicious wines as well as dances and sock hops. Yes, all our properties come with land line phones. Cell phones can be forwarded to the cabin easily and out going calls can be made from the cabin phone. Look forward to your return visit. We love having guests like you!

Relaxing getaway with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin.....clean and well-maintained . I would like to suggest that you replace the blinds for the sliding door with curtains.The large deck is great for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The kids loved the canoe, especially my son, who loves to fish. We rented a pontoon for a day from Fish Springs Marina.....very nice marina and the people were very friendly. We rode the lake from one end to the other. It is a beautiful lake! We also visited the winery. We tasted 12 wines for $4.00. The people there are so friendly and nice. This was one of our very best vacations and can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you had a wonderful time. Yes, you are right its a great area to explore and play. Yes, boat rentals thru any of the local marina's are popular and a great way to see the entire lake. Its a really big lake and takes a couple of days to go from end to end. The winery is a new place for our guests to visit. They do have inexpensive delicious wines. So glad you took the opportunity to visit the winery and enjoy.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

I don't typically write reviews but I couldn't help but express how wonderful this place was! We visited in October and enjoyed every second of this mountain retreat. We were impressed with the accommodations. Everything was clean and well stocked. The location was perfect and we enjoyed renting a boat from fish springs marina so we could experience the lake. The canoe was a great perk that we used everyday of our visit and the hot tub was clean and relaxing after a long day of adventure. Thank you for a wonderful getaway. We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, Bass Bungalow is a popular place to stay all year round. Sitting so close to the shore line makes water access easy, just a couple of steps away is your boat slip and complimentary canoe. So glad you all enjoyed your stay. Know you are welcome back anytime. Reference alakecabin4ucom when ready for a mountain get away here on Watauga lake in the East Tennessee Mountains!
