Beautiful River House in Elizabethton, TN

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect weekend getaway for our family! The location right on the river is perfect for fishing, kayaking or tubing but is conveniently only 5 minutes from restaurants and shopping. It is also just a few minutes drive to great locations for hiking and biking!!

The Watauga River House is well furnished, comfortable and kid-friendly! We will definitely visit again!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable beds and well appointed kitchen. Space by the river was so peaceful. My husband was surprised it was somewhat in town but we didn’t notice neighbors. Plenty of bedding and towels. Responsive owner. Very much enjoyed! Also near to grocery store and great hikes!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We visited family over Christmas. The home couldn't have been more convenient. It provided us with the space we needed to unwind. The river was icy but beautiful. This home allowed us to have a wonderful time celebrating the holidays. It was especially nice that they decorated the house with a tree and other holiday decor.
