Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you all for another enjoyable weekend at your cabin Hidden Cove. Once again we checked into a super clean place with a warm bubbling hot tub. Loved all the new furniture. The sofa is extremely comfortable and the new dinning room set is adorable. New stain out side even new deck furniture. Everyone in our group appreciates how well you keep your place up. The roads are paved and its easy to get a round. We made it into town in less than 20 mins. Notice too some new stores that opened. Love the new restaurants that you told us about in our welcome package. Suba's has some excellent food selections especially their deserts. I appreciated the heads up on the dishwasher. Sears was in and out in 30 mins after replacing with a new one. It worked great too. We also appreciated the bottle of Champagne, how nice of you to remember our wedding anniversary. You guys do a great job and we'll continue to return every year. Please reserve the spring race dates for 2015. We look forward to our return trip. If you send us the link we'll post our review where ever you like or you are welcome to Post on our behalf.

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.

Hidden Cove had all we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Watauga Lake. The views from this Mtn cabin were majestic!! The cabin was well maintained, The furnishings & beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with ample cookware and dishes. The outdoor decks were great for sitting and taking in the view, very peaceful. The canoe was a great plus, we paddled up the river and back, was just an awesome time. We finished up each night by the outdoor fire pit or in the hot tub. This cabin really had lots to offer and we can't wait to come back!!

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was very pleasant. There were a few minor dislikes but, I have never seen a perfect vacation rental. I will start with what I did like the most and wont be able to list them all. First the view is amazing, this is what I enjoyed the most from this cabin. I also liked the amount of household items included towels, dishware, wasp killer etc.......

Cabin was clean and beautiful on the inside..

Dislikes: Outside light didn't work at hot tub, outside porch ceilings could use a cleaning to get rid of all the spider webs, Grass wasn't cut until the day before we left. ( was pretty high at the time). Other than that its a lovely place and I am already planning to book it again for next year!!

Ideal quiet lakefront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our long weekend here! The house is nicely appointed, well laid out, and very clean. There are great unobstructed views of the lake from every bedroom and all points on the deck including the hot tub! This area of the lake was peaceful and quiet with just small fishing boats, canoes, and pontoons. The beds are comfy and we all slept soundly. And it's a great location from which to swim, bike, and run!

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for the whole family, but also was just right for the two of us. I was afraid it would feel too big, but most of the bedrooms are downstairs. Through the day we enjoyed the main level living room with it's open kitchen, big deck and fantastic lake views. And in the evening we retreated to a spacious but cozy master bedroom on the upper level. The rain poured down for our two days there, so we didn't venture out much. But it didn't matter. We were in heaven. Oh, and this place is built so solidly. One night, the wind was gusting over 50mph, but even from the top floor bedroom, we couldn't hardly tell. Across time, we've stayed at nearly every house on this ridge. We'd recommend them all, esp Hidden Cove!
