Few places in the world offer as much beauty as upper East Tennessee. This area offers a unique blend of year-round fishing opportunities including some of the BEST TROUT FISHING in the eastern United States. The Watauga River regularly attracts anglers from surrounding states. It is one of only two trout rivers in the state.

You will love going down to the river in the morning with your coffee to watch the Geese, Heron and Deer...a cherished pastime of the homeowners themselves.   This super relaxing and tranquil setting will take you back in time to simplier days.

This riverhouse is only 20 minutes from the Bristol Motor Speedway on two private acres with over 300 feet of private river frontage and a private fishing dock and stone table to filet your catch and grill to boot.

This home is perfect for family getaways, corporate and executive housing, family reunions, and artist retreats. The riverhouse is all about class; fully furnished with leather furniture and top of the line mattresses, pillows, linens and internet service.

Within five minutes of the riverhouse you have Watauga Kayak Tours and Outfitters providing all your fishing needs as well as kayak, raft rentals, whitewater rafting and more.

There is a huge living room with hardwood floors and a cozy wood burning fireplace. The Master bedroom faces the river so you can sleep to natures river sounds. The second bedroom upstairs also has a river view. Additionally, you'll find two full bathrooms upstairs (one of which includes amenities for the mobility impaired, including shower support bars and an elevated toilet seat).  Downstairs has a pool table, wet bar, CD player, flat screen TV, and a game room with a ping-pong table for your entertainment!

Beautiful Wataga Lake is within 15 minutes where you can rent boats and jet ski's to spend the day in the sun fishing or splashing around.  Nationally known Storytelling in historic Jonesboro is within 30 minutes.

Downtown Elizabethton has one of the oldest Covered bridges (built in 1882) in the state. Antique shops line the quaint Mayberry type town with various restaurants. Antique cars line the downtown streets (closing just for them) on weekends during warm weather.

Biltmore House and Gardens, Grandfather Mountain, Sugar and Beach Mountain (skiing) in winter time and trail hiking in warmer weather and so much more are within day trips. Roan Mountain State Park within 30 minutes.

Very Nice & Clean with plenty of room to spread out.

  • 5 of 5

This place is very nice with a lot of room. The kitchen was stocked great with plenty of pots and pans. I think it would a great place for my brothers family and mine to spend Thanksgiving. I love the fact that it's right on the river so the guys can fish and the ladies can just relax and enjoy the sounds of the water. The kids enjoyed the pool table and the ping pong table. Loved that all three showers could be used at once.

Nice amenities, great location

  • 5 of 5

Four guys used this as a "base" for a week of fishing in the area. RiverHouse is nicely appointed, clean, well-maintained, and quite comfortable. There is plenty of room in the house and on the grounds. The property borders the river; and the "dock" is very nice. We would like to return next year.


1. The location is great - just a few minutes from everything

2. Kitchen appliances are excellent (dishwasher is a big hit!)

3. For our group, four bedrooms is great... a definite plus

4. Although we did not make use of them, the various recreational equipment provided (ping pong, billiards, darts, and such) is nice.

5. Plenty of hot water

6. Ramp to deck


1. Place a switch on the dusk-to-dawn lamp by the river... by being on, it definitely detracted from the evening ambience of the dock.

2. Replace the charcoal grill with gas grill, or at a minimum, ensure the grill is in proper condition to use.

3. Provide some sort of rain protection at the dock and at/near the grill

Wonderfull time

  • 4 of 5

The house is an older one, but it was amazing how well it has been kept up. Everything was spotless and there was pretty of room for 6 adults and two kids. The river in the morning with the fog coming in is remarkable. Pool table, ping pong everything you need for a long weekend. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home
