Butler House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

Situated overlooking a quiet cove of Lake Watauga, this secluded retreat has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, with a sleeping capacity of 8 persons. The house is on two levels with a large deck on each level overlooking the cove. Three of the bedrooms open directly to a deck. The living areas have an open floor plan with a fully equipped modern kitchen, a TV with cable, a DVD/VCR player, wi-fi connection, a gas log fireplace and an outdoor grill. The master bath has a whirlpool tub and separate shower and there is a separate laundry/utility room. The house is part of a small, secluded older lake house development with common lake access areas.

Lake Watauga is located within National Forest boundaries giving the lake an 'undeveloped' character. It is known as one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in America. There are several boat access points and three marinas with boat rentals within 10 miles if the house. Year round recreation opportunities are plentiful in the area and two major Universities are located within a half hour drive.

About Ann and Randy Roark

We were looking for a mountain cottage near our son and his family near Boone, NC. Not only did we find exactly what we wanted but got the added bonus of being on one of the most beautiful lakes in America! Then we realized we landed in one of the richest musical areas, as well, ranging from the Carter Famliy to the celtic music traditions. Plus there is great hiking near-by, the Appalachian trail crosses the lake, and we are not far from snow skiing in the Southern Appalachians? You gotta be kidding! I know you will love it too!

Ann and Randy Roark purchased this house in 2006

COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER STAY!!

  • 5 of 5

This house met and exceeded all of our expectations. My boyfriend and I, my parents, and his dad all enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this house. The layout of the house was perfect for us. We took the downstairs(master bedroom) and our parents each had a bedroom and bathroom of their own upstairs. This house is great to go to if you want some great quality time, minus the distractions of TV's, cellphones, internet. Yes, this house only had one, small TV, with limited channel selection, no cell phone service, and no WiFi.....and we loved it!!!! I think sometimes people get carried away with everyday "necessities" and they forget what it is like to actually have to have communication with the people they love. We rented this house for Bristol weekend so all of us could stay together and not in separate hotel rooms. The house is about 35-40 minutes from the track, however, it was a very easy drive. We are hoping to make this a yearly trip...and hopefully we will be able to rent this wonderful house again.

Wonderful Mountain Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cabin, very secluded on a mountain facing a cove of the beautiful green waters of Lake Wautauga. Nice views, comfortable and roomy, great kitchen, awesome master suite. Close to the Lake and several boat ramps. Try Shirley's for breakfast (weekends only). Thinking of making this an annual trip, we so enjoyed it. Owner was super nice, helpful and friendly. Only con was no WiFi or cell service. One of our group had to drive to "town" to answer some work e-mails and check on ill relative. Also, the gas grill LP tank was empty. We would definitely recommend this wonderful rental!!!!

Six Seniors

  • 5 of 5

enjoyed the conveniently located house and discovered East Tennessee! The house was secluded and well suited for 6 adults and completely met our needs. The owner was most helpful and accommodating as we planned our trip and had good local information available in the house upon arrival. We rented a pontoon boat at Mallard Cove Marina and spent an entire day on beautiful Wautaga Lake, surrounded by glorious mountains. We visited Mountain City and enjoyed dinner in Elizabethon, drove to Blowing Rock and took the Blue Ridge Parkway to Little Switzerland and took off the parkway on the return trip and drove local roads back to Butler. Stopped at Hidden Treasures Antiques & Unique Things in Elk Park, NC, where we were greeted by a lovely and helpful owner. We discovered an area we would like to revisit and get to know better!
