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.
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!!

We just left this property last week. Our stay in Jan was great. We hit the slopes every day. Sugar and Beech were in full swing with lots of snow. The cabin we loved. This place is very clean, neat and everything needed is provided. Our family really enjoyed the beds. They are extremely comfortable with very nice linens and comfortable pillows. All bedrooms have glass sliding doors that open up onto decks making it so convenient to just step out and get a breath of fresh air. You can tell the views of the lake and mountains were taken right off the deck of this house you can even focus in and see the exact same railing on the deck as the online pictures. Just note that each season has its look. Winter will look more bear with less water and foliage. Summer months are going to be a totally different look. We have stayed her twice now. Our last stay was in July and the lake was so full of water that it was splashing on the road. Even though water levels fluctuate with the seasons its still pretty much the same gorgeous view. The housekeeper does live just below the hill and thank good ness for that. I called twice for help. First I locked myself out, she arrived within minutes to get me back in. She even stopped by to help me when my youngest got sick. She gets a big A+ for that assistance and so thankful for her being close enough to help quickly. We found the other homes & yards in the area to be neat & clean. Our expectations of the property have been met both stays. We love it and plan to return soon.
I loved the cabin however the pictures of the lake were very misleading, the lake view is not the same as the pics posted the water levels are very low and you mostly see mud flats. There is also a dumpy trailer right in front of the cabin so you will be looking at it the whole time.
Loved that place but couldn't enjoy our coffee the first morning because the coffeemaker didn't work. Overall a great experience. By the way make sure that you will be able to connect you phone to the wifi call because there absolutely no cellular service around
We'd love to stay again. We rented a pontoon boat and was out on the lake on Friday and went hiking Saturday, so we didn't spend a tremendous amount of time in the house. However, we were able to come back and enjoy the hot tub and firepit. Plus the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and prepare meals. The driveway was a little difficult to navigate, but not to bad. I also think that the master bedroom way outshines the two bedrooms downstairs. Whomever gets the master is really in for a treat. But the other two are fairly small but offer a great view. Although we didn't plan to use the canoes and kayak that come with the house, their location was not obvious and it's a little ways from the house. But again, we made no effort to find and use them.
We had a great time. Still haven't received my deposit that was supposed to have been sent on Oct. 6.
