Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, plus loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6-9

This beautifully appointed, very unique, custom built cabin is available to rent, either nightly or by the week. Aptly named “The Tree House” for the trees, built into the house!

Enjoy beautiful lake and mountain views, luxury bedding and all of the comforts of home.

Whether it’s for Summer recreation, Fall foliage or winter skiing, it is a perfect place for a romantic honeymoon, family getaway, couples getaway or family reunion. Located on pristine Watauga Lake, you have access to 106 miles of shoreline and are surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest. The lake and mountain views from this cabin are spectacular.

The Tree House is the perfect place to 'escape' the daily grind and enjoy nature's beauty from the comfort of a well-equipped lakeside cabin. It is a short walk to the private, community marina and gazebo, where you can swim, enjoy a 2 person kayak that is provided, tie up your own boat or jet ski or enjoy a 24 foot Bennington Fish and Cruise Pontoon, for rent exclusively by Tree House guests. You can be busy every minute, or simply sit by the water's edge and relax.

Enjoy the lake, hiking, Grandfather Mountain, the Virginia Creeper Trail, Bristol Caverns, Golf at Red Tail Golf Club, zip line at Off The Grid, go with a guide at Trophy Water Guide Service and fish the trophy trout streams in the area and many more great outdoor activities.

Pet Policy: Well behaved pets are welcome with an extra security deposit of $150, and an additional $25 cleaning fee. Pets must be spayed or neutered, current on all vaccines and treated with some form of topical flee treatment, like Frontline, one week prior to arrival.

About Kim Matlack

For years, my husband and I have been looking for a 4-season place to get 'out of the rat race'. We love the outdoors, and wanted a place to do it all-hike, boat, snow ski, fish, golf, horseback ride....and relax. This past Fall, we finally discovered Watauga Lake and The Tree House. It is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places we have seen. We immediately fell in love with it and hope you will too!

Kim Matlack purchased this cabin in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house has unique personality and character. We loved it! Kimberly and Sam provided excellent service and everything we need is ready in the house. Really, beyond our expectations! The boat is the icing on the cake. We hope to be back!

Fabulous Rental home for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and could not have asked for a better home or more accommodating host in Kim. This kitchen has everything you will need down to the cupcake pans! The home was large enough to accommodate 3 couples and two toddlers, she even has a safety gate for stairway!

You will not regret making this your vacation rental! Kim is extremely responsive and easy to work with. Book it now! We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful cabin. Accommodated all 9 of us perfectly with ample space to have privacy. Well-equipped kitchen, plenty of linens. We absolutely loved using the fireplaces and cooking big breakfasts before heading out each day. It truly was a wonderful vacation!
