Country Cordwood is a very unique vacation cabin nestled in the mountains of East Tennessee. Close to the Appalachian trail, ski resorts, Bristol Motor Speedway and situated on a blue ribbon trout stream, it is a relaxing location away from the stresses of everyday life. It is minutes from Watauga lake, a large TVA managed recreation lake known for it's clean water, good fishing, swimming and boating.
Easy access to the Tri Cities of Johnson City, Kingsport and Bristol as well as Boone NC and Abingdon VA. Butler is a rural community in the history rich upper East Tennessee region. Less than an hour from Interstates 26 and 81, it is accessible by good roads year round.
The owners live on the property and maintain a small mountain farm with a wide variety of semi-exotic animals and livestock.

About Karen Visser
Your hosts have raised nine children on the adjoining property. We are a homeschooling family and operate a family manufacturing business, here.
Karen Visser purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Karen Visser chose Butler
This cabin was built entirely by our four sons, with Dad's oversight, as a homeschool project. Working every Saturday, from daylight until dark, for nearly three years, was a tremendous family experience and educational opportunity. The result is a handcrafted cabin with unique charm.
What makes this Cabin unique
Nights around the fire ring, picnics and cookouts, peace and solitude. Lots of recreational opportunities, hiking, biking and boating.

Relaxing and refreshing retreat
Beautiful, rustic setting with all the convenience of home. Owners are wonderful to work with and provide many extras to make sure you're comfortable. Very relaxing and peaceful. Great place for kids and pets. We had breakfast on the sunny front porch and spent evenings around the bonfire. Took kayaks out on the lake. Mountain City is close by with great restaurants, grocery and antiquing. Great artistic retreat or simply a place to disconnect and relax. We will definitely return!
Exactly what we wanted!!!!
The cabin was very unique and was exactly what we wanted. Karen and Greg were both very nice and accommodating. We definitely would recommend renting this property.
Country cordwood is a wonderful mountain retreat. The images are no substitute for seeing this home
Our stay was wonderful. The owners of this property are very thoughtful and the home was well stocked with options for family play and relaxation. In addition the cabin is well appointed if you need to work as the technology is on par with any resort. The owners provide support for any need and the cabin is so well appointed you will not need anything more than food and clothes. A very nice surprise is the well stocked DVD collection with many family movies. As a professional I travel often and must say this stay exceeded all expectations my family will be back to enjoy the changing seasons at country cordwood.
