Notes:
After renting cabins ourselves for years we knew the important factors and convenience, Comfort and Privacy were at the top of our list. The great room offers an open floor plan combining living area, dining room and kitchen. This allows everyone to be together whether cooking, watching TV & playing board games at the dining room table. Folks who are on Deck are just off the great room and just a yell away. The large six person hot tub is on deck too secluded on the side of the home overlooking the water and mtn range. Parking for RV/Boat/Trailer: You are able to bring and park trailers and boats at digisnated area* Lake View: with boat slip just a few mins walk. You have an absolutely gorgeous view of the lake and Cherokee National Forest * Mountain View: Cherokee National forest * Boat rentals at the Local marina's.

Comfort, Cozy, Secluded and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

Our small family with a few friends enjoyed this cabin. Situated slightly up hill along a cove of Lake Watauga, this cabin comes with all the amenities: multiple decks, porch swing, hot tub, pool table, large kitchen, fire pit, and plenty of room. We were able to enjoy multiple excursions out to the lake via Fish Springs Marina (boating) and Off the Grid Adventures (Jet Skis) just 25 minutes drive from cabin.

Owner's Response: So good to hear that you all enjoyed the cabin, its amenities, and the water excursions. Renting a boat is a must during the warmer months. Watauga lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in America. With jaw dropping views and very little traffic it is a boaters dream vacation. Thanks for your kind words and for taking good care of the home.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was everything and more! We had a wonderful time, but did have an emergency and had to leave a few days earlier. My son and his friends and family stayed and enjoyed it as much as we did the first 6 days. The views are breath taking early in the morning from every balcony. Extremely pleased with everything being very well stock and ready for guests. Excellent service right from the first phone call.

Overall a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is great. Very large and has plenty of rooms. There are plenty of couches and the dining room benches are great for large parties. The hot tub and the fire pit are great touches. The only downfall is the cleanliness of the cabin. The dishwasher doesn't work properly and we had to wash all the dishes by hand (since paper dishes were discouraged to keep garbage at a minimum) before we could use them and during our stay. The kitchen supplies are minimal and the coffee maker did not work. Good thing we brought our own. The first floor was very dusty. Other than that the cabin, area, and view was amazing. If i could be guaranteed the cabin would be cleaned well and the dishwasher issue solved I would return in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words and the constructive criticism. We really count on guests remarks to help us improve. Glad this guest enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit both are great touches to enjoy. Hope too theses guest enjoyed their early check in several hours earlier than scheduled. Know housekeeping worked hard in a limited amount of time to get the place ready for their early arrival. There is a new coffee maker on the counter and we always keep an additional new coffee make under the counter. Guests are welcome to bring their own coffee maker, cappuccino machine etc.. Dishwasher has been totally cleaned out and rinses well. We ask all guests to please rinse the dishes off before loading into the dishwasher. Plates packed with food wont clean well in a dishwasher so rinsing off old food particles is key. We also ask all guests during their stay not to put away dirty dishes, pots or pans. If you cant get it clean, please leave it in plain sight for housekeeping so they can scrub with an SOS pad and get it clean for the next family. Cabins with hardwood floors are mopped before guests arrival and all carpets vacuumed. Yes, you can certainly see dust even after cleaning. Its impossible to get up every speck. Just to keep expectations reasonable ....
