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. Know that we really appreciate respectful guests and welcome you back anytime.

Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house itself. Plenty of room for 10 adults and 4 kids to enjoy a relaxing week on the lake. The only reason I might look for something else on the same lake would be for something right on the lake as opposed to up the hill. On the downside the hot tub only actually heated past 96 degrees once someone came out to repair it on the 5th day of a 7 day reservation. Also, the main room floor was dirty and there were a lot of spider webs on the porches upon arrival. Once we cleaned up those couple things we really enjoyed the rest of our week there. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful lake if you're looking for a Smoky Mountain Lake experience!

Very enjoyable Family Vacation on Wautaga Lake in Butler Tennessee!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice property overlooking beautiful Watauga Lake with roughly a 1/4 mile walk downhill to shared docks(Canoe,paddles and life jackets provided). Enjoyed Kayaking and canoeing on the lake. Great hiking in nearby Cherokee National Park-Laurel Falls and compression Falls in particular. Our visit to Watauga Lake Winery for wine testing proved to be an enjoyable experience as well. Very enjoyable Family Vacation on Watauga Lake in Butler Tennessee!

Great house need to make MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS to the dock area

  • 3 of 5

The house was great BUT I would never rent it again. IF you house 14 the dock should accommodate that many!!!! There was only 1 ladder for all 6 docks!!!! Each dock should have its own ladder....a cheap thing to do. A golf chart for the house would also be a wise investment for your guests. As soon as we arrived someone approached us and told us we were trespassing. WE STAYED ON OUR SIDE OF THE DOCK AND WE'RE VERY CONSIDERATE TO ALL OTHER GUESTS. One of the maintenance guys approached us and said that a lady (who was fairly friendly to our face) complained about us EVERY DAY. We will definitely be back to the lake but will find a different home

Owner's Response: Glad the house was enjoyed. Its a lovely larger home that allows up to 14 guests. The dock is a private community dock with six boat slips and a ladder to make getting in and out of the water easier. This dock can accommodate up to six boats total with only three cabins sharing the dock there is more than enough room. It is the guest responsibility to rent a boat large enough for their entire group. Pontoon boat rentals are made easy thru any of the local marina's and are the best way to experience Watauga lake. Folks jump in the water and use the ladder when they finish swimming. Most park their boats at their slip and head back up to their cabin to enjoy the rest of their evening. Any guest is welcome to bring a golf cart. This home sits alone with neighbors a good distance away. Walking down to the water guests will pass other properties. As always we ask all guests to be courstious of the neighbors yards and not cut across their lawns.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay in the cabin! To make a long story short, my husband and I were in a bind during our road trip honeymoon and needed a place to stay in immediately. We saw that this had the "book instantly" option and decided to go for it. Within 10 minutes the owner contacted me (this was pretty late at night by the way!) to confirm and provide the logistics. We were beyond grateful for the quick and thorough communication! The cabin was exactly what we were looking for-quiet, cozy, and with fantastic views. It was raining off and on during our stay but there was still plenty to do with the pool table and covered porch. When it wasn't raining we enjoyed walking to the dock and taking the canoe out. We fell in love with the town of Butler during our stay and especially loved the nearby winery. We are already talking about trying to go back sometime soon!

Owner's Response: Glad you 'all had a good time and enjoyed the place. The tiny town of Butler is a enjoyable with lots of down home folks who appreciate your business. The winery is very popular with the guests, offers free wine tastings and sell bottles at a very reasonable price. Great for a rainy day or just to get away for a an hour - its only a ten minute drive from this cabin. The canoe ride into the Cherokee National Forest is a big highlight for many guests. There's barely any current so its very easy to paddle there and back. Glad we could accommodate you this time and look forward to hearing from you next time your ready for another mountain get away on Watauga lake.
