Will not ever come back!!!

  • 1 of 5

This was by far the worst trip ever!! I usually don't like leaving bad reviews but something has to be done!!! Our family honestly wanted to leave the first day but knew we wouldn't get our money back. There is literally no parking unless all pile into one car it's on a gravel hill. The place was not clean we had to strip all the beds and put new sheets on them spider webs in every corner had to clean all the dishes before even using them and the list does go on and on. The home itself and the view in beautiful I just feel it's just not up to par and to spend all that money it just wasn't worth it. The ac was broke everyday and wasn't fixed until the night before we were leaving. We spoke with the owner every single day of the stay so he was aware of the issues we as a family feel we need to get some form of a refund. We will never come back!!!!

Beautiful and spacious home on an impressive lake.

  • 4 of 5

No question, the home, views and lake were 5 stars individually however the driveway was very steep and unpaved. The 5 minute walk from the dock wasn't too bad for the members of our group that could do it but half of our group needed a car to make it up the steep hill. All in all, the vacation was wonderful and would recommend this home to anyone planning a trip to this area.

Spectacular scenery in a beautiful and nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

Some information for future guests:

1. The cabin is located on hillside with very steep access road which some part of it at the end is not asphalted.

2. Google Maps is not precise there. Use these coordinates for the exact location of the cabin:


3. The canoe is located at the front left corner of Dock B which is about 5-10 min walk from the cabin. Use the same entrance password to unlock the canoe. The paddles and life jackets can be found in the washer/dryer room.

4. Although the cabin is nice and clean, the bedsheets are not! There were also hundreds of ladybugs in one of the room and we used the vacuum cleaner to clear them.

5. You will get back your deposit in about 3 weeks after check out.

7. Owner, housekeeping and maintenance were kind, fast and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The home is in the mountains, hence there are hills. There is a completely paved access road that makes a very enjoyable walk. The driveway is gravel to help traction when there is snow. Although Hamid contacted us with questions almost 8-10 times before and during the stay, he never mentioned any issue with bedsheets. Our housekeeper is available 7 days/week, but was never contacted by him. After speaking with Hamid, he tells me he didn't realize that the bedsheets came in colors other than white (our sheets are color coordinated with the comforters) He assumed this meant they weren't clean? In the winter, if you leave a window open, some lady bugs might get in. Rose, our housekeeper goes through the whole house the day before guest arrival to ensure everything is perfect. Although we appreciate the GPS coordinates, we've never had guests have a problem finding the house. There is very good road signage and GPS works fine there. Deposits are now returned by the computer system within a week. Thank you for your 4 star rating. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.

Great weekend at a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at the cabin! The house is beautiful and very clean. We had small children with us and felt comfortable in the house. Would recommend bringing a baby gate for the stairs as they are a little more dangerous than normal stairs (even thought they are beautiful). We rented a boat for a day and were able to use the dock with ease. The lake is gorgeous with lots of little coves for swimming and picnics. The house was spacious but homey and we will absolutely consider another trip to the house. Our only critique is a little more signage to find the house since GPS was not the most accurate after getting on Draft RD. we needed some assistance with a wasp nest on the deck and the maintenance response was fabulous! Thank you for opening your home for us to enjoy a wonderful weekend at the lake!

Majestic manor a beautiful spot to relax

  • 5 of 5

A group of 4 couples headed here to Tennessee for a vacation and what we got what was one of our favourite vacation spots. The cabin was beautiful, clean and had tons of room. Our favourite part besides the view from the cabin was the view from the lake. This absolutely made our trip, it was so beautiful and relaxing.

We would definately stay at this cabin again.

Majestic Manor at Watauga Lake

  • 5 of 5

Majestic Manor is absolutely perfect ! Every feature about the house is lovely, we could not ask for more. The layout is ideal, with each bedroom offering luxury...and quiet for rest. The view of the lake is simply grand from every spot on the decks. Had a great time in the water at the dock. We had a simply wonderful time and hope to return again. Thank you so much for allowing us to book your home for our vacation stay !
