Beautiful place, great views, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Recently just stayed here and loved it. The views are really much nicer than pictured. Spacious, comfortable furnishing, and loved the jacuzzi bath tub. Easy to find and convenient to get around. Melody does a great job too with her area information. We will definitely be back.

Spacious & Quite

  • 4 of 5

Let me say that Watauga Lake & River vacation cabin rentals may be the quickest responding and most courteous group I have ever rented from. Their response time was outstanding & helpful. They were truly a pleasure to work with. As for the cabin, It is open and spacious but cozy. The living room had an Ideal view with nice furniture, the cabin felt more like a cottage but bigger. The spot on the side of the mountain was tranquil, very quite with only the sound of rushing water from the Watauga River far below. The River though not visible was very relaxing and wild life was a common site, we had two deer come and visit us one evening. The site was a little tricky (GPS on phone & Garmin in truck was very off,(very spotty service)) to find at first but the directions sent with rental agreement were very accurate. Once found getting back to it was easy, just plot the driveway on nav as a favorite, also if you use nav on a phone save the map offline if not service interruptions will occur. The site was what I call off the beaten path but still close enough to the attractions. 21 miles from Down Town Boone & 12 miles from Beech Mt. which is where we went Skiing. If you want to relax with out dropping a lot of money this place is perfect. My kids grumbled about very limited cell service but it didn't bother me, full cell service returns in just about a mile from the cabin. This place was very clean in and out. Views were beautiful, site near by didn't obstruct views, & almost no road noise to be noticed. Overall I have nothing negative to say, it was clean, everything worked, the price was great, we had a very good experience and would go here again.

Great House in a Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing! We hit the tail end of the fall colors -- but it was still beautiful. The house was perfect! Very clean and the view from the living room picture window was awesome. Also liked the covered porch..so much so that I sat outside in the early morning with coffee in hand watching the sun come up while wrapped in a blanket to ward off the early November chill. Would recommend visiting Boone, NC, also drove up to Abingdon, VA and visited the Artisan Store there. A restaurant recommendation is the La Cucina Italian Kitchen in Mountain City, TN. They only have 24 seats so reservations are recommended. When we were there they were only open Wednesday - Sunday. The food was truly amazing. My husband who is gluten free said it's the best gluten free Italian food he's ever eaten!. Another recommendation is to visit the Watauga Winery nearby on Watauga Lake. Ohio Traveler -

if you wanna getaway from it all with a great view, this is it

  • 4 of 5

nice, clean, well kept property, though we did have a small problem with water that was immediately resolved. The cabin sits atop a mountain with gorgeous views of mountains. The drive to and from the property can be a little tiring for a flatlander and it is removed from most civilized activity. The cabin is close to Lake Watagua and there are a couple of marinas with boat rentals, kayaks, paddleboards, etc that are reasonably close. There is not much dining or shopping opportunity that is very close so unless you looking for a secluded mountain retreat, or a lake vacation, you will probably be doing some mountain driving.

Owner's Response: Glad you found the place clean and in good working order. Sometimes guests turn off the water and the lever has to be turned back on - just a flip of the switch. Yes, it is definitely a mountain get away with gorgeous views and great lake access. This place sits mid mountain closer to the water which is about a 5 minute walk down to the dock. Boat rentals are easy thru any of the local marinas. All are very accommodating. There isn't a McDonalds at the end of the road but there are lots of hidden places, non commercialized, family owned options around this area which is tourism driven. Dry Hill general store is less than a five minute drive and sells breakfast lunch and dinner. On Watauga lake there is a finer dinning restaurant that is kid friendly too serving lunch and dinner with a full bar. Shirley's restaurant has a line out the door on Saturdays and Sundays and is a ten minute drive. Theres vacation villages too in every direction all about a 30 minute drive with lots of restaurants, shopping, live music and festivals. All this and more is in a welcome package emailed to every guest who stays with us. Make sure you review the list of favorite places so you don't miss out on the fun!

Nice home with great views!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here and really enjoyed the place. The online booking was very easy and we immediately received a welcome package directly from the cabin rental company that gave us lots of helpful information. The long range views were gorgeous, you could see far far away. There's a nice yard for dogs, and a large wrap around deck with a grill. The place is a large two bedroom home that was spotless. We met the housekeeper one morning, her and her husband make themselves available if guests need anything which is really nice. We never called but it was nice to know someone would be there if needed. Its a 30 minute trip to Boone for Walmart, restaurants and entertainment. Our favorite restaurant was Hob Knob Cafe. It was recommended in our welcome package and it was a great place to eat and not expensive. At the property you feel like you are very removed from the world but town isn't too far. Theres marina's around the lake area. We stop at a couple of them and finally rented a boat. We saw just about every inch of Watauga lake, too. Then we discovered the river and that was even more fun. If you like to fish, then you've arrived in the right area. We all hiked around on the Appalachian trail, it runs right thru this area and we hiked to Elk River Falls which were gorgeous. We would definite return and would recommend this for anyone looking to get a way and relax. Thanks for sharing your home with our family.

Owner's Response: It sounds like this vacation started off right. They had an easy time making their reservation. Everyone in the office tries to accommodate anyone looking to book a property. The welcome package is key to those unfamiliar with the area. It allows guests to move and groove like a local. You are right, the long range view is gorgeous and there is a large yard that welcomes pets. Glad to hear that you didn't need anything during your stay but if did know that the housekeeper is very attentive. The restaurants in all the nearby vacation villages are good. Lots are owned and run by Chiefs. Some are very inexpensive and some are 5 star dinning experiences. And of course there are all the usual chain restaurants for those who like familiarity. Boat rentals are provided thru the local marina's. In addition to Watauga lake you have four rivers to see, fish and swim along with water falls and hiking trails. Theres just so much to do up here from snow ski to water ski. Its a great retreat for any season.
