Why Watauga Lake & River vacation cabin rentals chose Tennessee

You have the best of both worlds with water and surrounding mountains. Beautiful view from the deck. Many travelers choose to stay here because it's economical.

Beautiful Lake & Mountain Views from your front Porch

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another couple~We brought our own blow up & but was an enjoyable stay for all. The Big front porch was our favorite hang out place when the guys weren't fishing or us girls site seeing. Very tranquil & relaxing especially with the Hot Tub.

The Peace & Quiet was just what we all needed to rejuvenate!

If I had a complaint~it would be the distance to the water from this cabin~It was my fault thinking directly on the water~But the brief walk was enjoyable.

Was easy to book & I've already gotten my deposit back as well. Enjoyable Relaxing Stay!

Owner's Response: Yes, there is a large deck that guests love to hang out on with great views of the lake and water. Its a quiet cove on the lake that is tranquil, relaxing and a large hot tub to enjoy and a big gas grill to cook on. Its just a short walk down to the lake where guests have a boat slip and a complimentary canoe. Being a short walk to the water also gives you more privacy and a better view. Thanks so much for the nice review. We always appreciate any kinds words about our little piece of heaven.

Beautiful, relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Driftwood Cottage for 3 nights and it was just what we needed. My husband had been hiking the Appalachian Trail and was taking a few zero days to rest and recuperate. Even though there were several outdoor activities to do here at the lake (boating, fishing, hiking, etc.), we chose to just take in the view from the big porch, enjoy the quiet, and relax. The hot tub is a great perk. It worked wonderfully and is secluded on the the side of the cottage for privacy. The cottage was well stocked with kitchen needs. It is small, but plenty of room for two or a small family. The cottage is quite a ways from any stores (30-45 mins), so your best bet is to bring whatever you need with you and just enjoy the lake. We would love to come again and stay at some point.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for saying such nice things. So glad you two could enjoy and just relax there. It is nice to slow down and just take in the day and the view from the hotter. Glad you found the kitchen well stocked, our housekeeper tries very hard to keep the property well maintained. For future reference Dry Hill General Store sells breakfast, lunch and dinner for about 5 bucks. It also sells fishing supplies and limited groceries and is only a 7 minute drive from this property. Watauga lake winery is just down the street and a real 'treat' according to guests. Shirley's restaurant is about 15 minutes down the road and is considered a real 'Gem' in this area. If you don't mind the long wait in line to get inside. The Captains Table restaurant is on the water, serves adult beverages and is kid friendly is about a 20 minute drive. All these places and more are listed in the welcome package that every guest receives. Being that you two just came out of the woods after your hike you probably didn't have time to discover but want all guests to know there is stuff around if you know where to go. Again thanks so much for the kind words. They are most appreciated.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to get away from it all and relax. Yes the house is small but was perfect for the 2 of us and our dog. It had everything we needed. What a treat to sit in the hot tub and look out over the lake. Would definitely stay her again!

Fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the cottage. It was perfect for just the two of us. It kept us close together but had everything we needed! The canoes being included were great! It was a little hike down the steep drive way to the dock (which is very slippery even when dry so be careful!) but well worth it! The lake was gorgeous all the way around. There's the cutest general store to the left after the bridge, instead of a right. The help there is the sweetest I have ever met! The only thing about the cottage is that the sliding door would not lock, with all of our valuables while we were gone during the day. I would also recommend the owner spraying for bugs because there were quite a few inside as well as on the balcony. Other than that, the location was perfect and we enjoyed every moment of it.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. You sound so cheerful. You're right everyone at Dry Hill General is so sweet and for about five bucks you can eat breakfast, lunch or dinner, purchase fishing supplies and groceries. Know too that the sliding glass door has been fixed. Even with very little theft in this small communuty we still encourage guests to leave 'valuables' at home. There's no reason to bring anything up here fancy. This is blue jeans and tennis shoes territory. Know all of our properties in that area are sprayed monthly for bugs. But being in the Cherokee National Forrest you will see some, there's just no way to avoid. Some bugs like honey bees you aren't allowed to spray for as they are protected because they are endangered. When maintenance came up there to check on you 'all he said the honey bees were out and about all over the mountains. That season has come and gone and most of the bees are gone too. Glad you enjoyed the location and the properties amenities. Know you are welcome back anytime.
