Overview

About the property

Farmhouse (Cottage), 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is just a great place to take advantage of the races and the river.

We enjoyed restoring the farm and house to make a scenic countryside vacation spot. We stripped down the house and were able to save the old pine floors and ceilings as well as some nostalgia with an old homemade wood stove and some ancient metal shingles. We made some unique furniture out of barn wood and used luthier grade curly maple to make the kitchen cabinets.The plumbing is indoor and modern and the beds and linens are new.

The main level upstairs has 2 bedrooms-- a queen and a daybed with 2 twins, as well as a bath with an extra sink outside. The living room has a sleeper sofa and the small kitchen is on this level.

Downstairs has a King bedroom and a bunkroom along with a family area, laundry and bath with a jacuzzi jetted bathtub. There are decks and a dock to take in the river and this is a great place to finish your float trip. You can pull out your boat or have your guide drop you off right where you are staying since this is the end of the river.

Our farm is where Watauga river becomes Boone lake and is on the edge of Johnson City so you are just minutes from the mall, cinemas and restaurants. It is a quick jump onto the Bristol Highway and you are 12 miles and less than 20 minutes from the race track.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and spacious. It's perfect for family gatherings. The owners made us feel so at home and were readily available if we had any questions. We loved the openness and privacy of the property. The farm atmosphere is fun for both the kids and adults. We'll definitely do our best to make this an annual vacation spot.

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was charming, spotless, and very quiet...except for the occasional moo from the nearby cows. We stayed here to be near relatives who live in Jonesborough. There were 8 of us and there was plenty of room. The kitchen is well equipped with every utensil and pan you may need. We did not have any problems while there except could not get the wood stove working ...if there were instructions, we didn't find them. But it was not such a big deal ( it was cold but not freezing!) so we did not ask about it. I loved sitting out on the porch and soaking in the serenity and scenery. It is very conveniently located just outside Johnson City and Bristol and yet far enough off the beaten path to feel like you are really "getting away". The owner, John, was very nice and checked on us via text message- which was nice. We knew he was available if needed. We hope to stay here again!

Relaxation takes over!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a peaceful, quiet, country setting. Short driving distance to anything you may want/need. All the comforts of home with none of the stress!!! Kids enjoyed playing on the river bank (short walk across the yard & you're there) and spending the day on the beach at local lakes. Older adults enjoyed antique shopping in nearby Elizabethton & Johnson City. Evenings spent relaxing by fire pit & enjoying s'mores. We all agreed, even before our week was over, that we want to come back here next year.

Wonderful Holiday time

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very polite and accommodating. We rented the place for the Christmas holidays to be near relatives that could not house us all. The entire place had a great feel about it and was a nice place to have friends and family over to celebrate Christmas. We will definitely look to rent this place the next time we travel to the area.
