Lakefront Mtn Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible beds, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8-12)
About Scott Russell
My wife and I are environmental consultants in Florida who love to escape to the Appalachian mountains. Good quality lake water is important to us in our profession and our free time. Those are prime reasons why we chose to build on the shores of Watauga Lake - the mountains (elevation of 2000 feet at our home) and absolutely great water quality. We enjoy it all at Waters Edge - all outdoor activities, relaxing in the cabin, cooking with family and friends, and enjoying the mountains. When we leave Waters Edge, we are saddened but already planning our next trip back. We have made Waters Edge a truly premier cabin for us and our guests. We have carefully planned and selected everything you will need to enjoy your stay. We have it cleaned and maintained meticulously to keep it in that premier shape. We are sure you will notice it and it will add to your enjoyment.
Scott Russell purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Scott Russell chose Butler
We chose Watauga Lake out of twelve lakes we were looking at in the southeast because of its elevation, its great water quality, and lack of crowding. Sixty percent of the watershed is occupied by the Cherokee National Forest and will never be developed. There are no weekend or summertime boat jams on Watauga. We also wanted mountains and views of them from the cabin. On Watauga we got it all! It is the perfect vacation lake home for year round enjoyment. There are indoor and outdoor activities at the home or close by during all four seasons. Our home is in the country, but convenient to the cities. Once you experience our lake home, no others will do!
What makes this Cabin unique
Guests will truly enjoy being directly on the lake with their own private yard and boat dock with a swim ladder. They will also enjoy the fact that it is an easy drive in and out - no steep, white knuckle roads! The views of the lake and mountains are outstanding. Often at night, you will hear nothing - that is NOTHING!!! Peaceful. Or crank up the stereo inside and out, grill out, toast marshmallows at the fire ring by the dock and life is good! There are too many unique features to mention all of them - the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, home theater, Jacuzzi, fireplace, outdoor shower, canoe, kayak, pool table, game table, 4 decks and a balcony ....... And all in excellent, well-maintained condition. Come see why many of our guests have said it is the nicest cabin on Watauga Lake!

Beautiful property and lake. We really enjoyed our stay.
Nice home on a gorgeous lake.
House was very comfortable with all of the additional touches to make for a wonderful week for our family of 10. We rented a pontoon boat for our stay and enjoyed the beautiful mountain lake immensely.
Scott, the owner, was very easy to work with and readily available by phone or e-mail. This is our second stay at Water's Edge and hopefully we will return someday.
Beautiful mountain retreat
Wonderful, spacious home with great accommodations. Perfectly situated on the lake with tons of things to do. The private dock and all the water toys provided was enjoyed by all. Would highly recommend this home.
What a great weekend to have a birthday! Friends and family in a beautiful home. Water's Edge is a perfect peaceful place. Scott is very gracious to open his home. He even gave us a personal tour when we dropped off the paperwork. Loved the open spaces and the views. Coffee in the loft with the views are something to cherish. The beds are the most comfortable I have stayed anywhere. Having a comfortable bed and waking up to the gorgeous views, with birds singing is the perfect nights rest. Scott provides just about everything you would need for a lake weekend with friends and family. Thanks again Scott, we will definitely be renting from you again, unless we can find our own :) wink wink
June '19 vacation
This is a woderful rental experience, at a very private top shelf location. The house was every bit as described. The only thing that would make it better, is if you had the option to stay more than a week. The house rents Saturday to Saturday. However, 6 days here was alot better than no days. A beautiful home in a beautiful area. I highly reccomend
