great place to get a way. Peaceful quiet romantic & relaxing. Lots of fun activities near-by.
The Best of all worlds. Nice summers without humidity or mosquitoes, Fall foliage with lots of colors to beautiful winters and light snows ..
Recently just stayed here and loved it. The views are really much nicer than pictured. Spacious, comfortable furnishing, and loved the jacuzzi bath tub. Easy to find and convenient to get around. Melody does a great job too with her area information. We will definitely be back.
The views were amazing! We hit the tail end of the fall colors -- but it was still beautiful. The house was perfect! Very clean and the view from the living room picture window was awesome. Also liked the covered porch..so much so that I sat outside in the early morning with coffee in hand watching the sun come up while wrapped in a blanket to ward off the early November chill. Would recommend visiting Boone, NC, also drove up to Abingdon, VA and visited the Artisan Store there. A restaurant recommendation is the La Cucina Italian Kitchen in Mountain City, TN. They only have 24 seats so reservations are recommended. When we were there they were only open Wednesday - Sunday. The food was truly amazing. My husband who is gluten free said it's the best gluten free Italian food he's ever eaten!. Another recommendation is to visit the Watauga Winery nearby on Watauga Lake. Ohio Traveler -
nice, clean, well kept property, though we did have a small problem with water that was immediately resolved. The cabin sits atop a mountain with gorgeous views of mountains. The drive to and from the property can be a little tiring for a flatlander and it is removed from most civilized activity. The cabin is close to Lake Watagua and there are a couple of marinas with boat rentals, kayaks, paddleboards, etc that are reasonably close. There is not much dining or shopping opportunity that is very close so unless you looking for a secluded mountain retreat, or a lake vacation, you will probably be doing some mountain driving.
Our family stayed here and really enjoyed the place. The online booking was very easy and we immediately received a welcome package directly from the cabin rental company that gave us lots of helpful information. The long range views were gorgeous, you could see far far away. There's a nice yard for dogs, and a large wrap around deck with a grill. The place is a large two bedroom home that was spotless. We met the housekeeper one morning, her and her husband make themselves available if guests need anything which is really nice. We never called but it was nice to know someone would be there if needed. Its a 30 minute trip to Boone for Walmart, restaurants and entertainment. Our favorite restaurant was Hob Knob Cafe. It was recommended in our welcome package and it was a great place to eat and not expensive. At the property you feel like you are very removed from the world but town isn't too far. Theres marina's around the lake area. We stop at a couple of them and finally rented a boat. We saw just about every inch of Watauga lake, too. Then we discovered the river and that was even more fun. If you like to fish, then you've arrived in the right area. We all hiked around on the Appalachian trail, it runs right thru this area and we hiked to Elk River Falls which were gorgeous. We would definite return and would recommend this for anyone looking to get a way and relax. Thanks for sharing your home with our family.
My husband and I had rented the house from July 1st to July 4th. The house was a little difficult to find but that is because the mail box down on the road is blocking it coming in from Boone but we did end of finding it. As far as the difficulty of the drive way it was a little more rough then what we expected but we managed to get up and down just fine. Our problem was with the uncleanliness of the home itself, there was mouse droppings under the sink and in every cupboard plus a mouse nest left in the garbage that someone had apparently found not only were there mouse droppings but we had to listen to them in the one of the bedrooms needless to say we did not get much rest. "We are not ignorant of the country life and what you can expect considering we lived in the country for 25 years and yes you will get a mouse in the home every now and then but I think more care could have been done before we arrived. The grill was not cleaned the container that the grease would drip into was full to the top lets just say it was not inviting to use. The guy across the road ran his quad up and down the road for hours Saturday and Sunday night so was it relaxing no it was not. And for the price of this home that we paid to stay I think was way out of line. We could have honestly stayed at a very nice Hotel for what we paid to stay for three nights. No we will not be coming back.
This was an ideal spot for our family. The view is second to none. A large yard too for our two dogs. Love the large wrap around porch and the fire pit in the back yard. Even though this places offers a large kitchen we grilled every night on deck and watched the sun set. Very peaceful and quiet. This is a larger two bedroom cottage with beautiful hard wood floors. Both bedrooms offer pillow top queen mattresses that are like new, and two large bathrooms, one bath offers a huge jacuzzi bath tub that both are kids fit in. Family oriented close towns in all directions were fun to visit, shop and enjoy out door festivals and live music. This place gets an A+ too for cleanliness. Lots of good folks helped us make our reservation online but also offered us option to mail in our payments which we really appreciate. Can't wait to return.
