WiFiVacation House On Watauga Lake
A Vacation Home on Watauga Lake, Tennessee
About Watauga Lake

From the house, run down the lawn right into the water - or do you prefer sunbathing on the dock? You have your own picnic area with fire pit, barbecue, umbrella, chairs, and lots of grass. And your own private dock to fish, swim, and tie up a boat.

The Lake Is Your Backyard!

This lakefront house on Watauga Lake offers lodging near Boone, North Carolina and Bristol, TN/VA. It will be your headquarters as you and your family explore the Appalachian Mountains and Cherokee National Forest on your weeklong vacation or long weekend getaway.

The house has three bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms. The Blue Bathroom has a whirlpool tub for 2 with romantic lighting and a separate steam shower for 2.

The house accommodates up to six people sleeping in comfort in the 3 bedrooms.  There is a queen bed in the alcove at the end of the upstairs hall, but this bed will probably use the bathroom on the first floor in order not to go through a bedroom. We will provide aero beds for a small additional fee for up to 4 extra guests.  Please, no more than 10 overnight guests!  The septic system can’t handle it.

Getting too hot?  Slip off the dock into the refreshing waters of Watauga Lake. Although it is a lake in the mountains, the water is not cold.  No salt, no waves, no chlorine!  Just pure fresh mountain water.  After all, Watauga Lake was created by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) when they dammed up the Watauga River back in 1948.

Your own private "resort" describes the House on Watauga Lake: fish, swim, boat right from your backyard.  Then take a hike on a nearby section of the Appalachian Trail or rent a bike and  coast down the famous Virginia Creeper Trail in nearby Damascus, VA.  Visit the Butler Museum to learn the story of “the town that wouldn’t drown”.
 If you are here during Old Butler Days the second weekend in August, enjoy small town music, games, food, vendors and even a "train ride" (for the kiddies).

Deck & Back Yard

From the Great Room you can exit to the Deck that runs the length of the back of the house. From this vantage you can see the entire back yard all the way to the lake, the dock, picnic area, and the mountains beyond. During the warmer months you can enjoy meals outside and do catch some rays. There are plenty of chairs, table with umbrella, and a cushioned swing.
On the second floor the Blue and  Green Rooms have individual outside balconies. This is a great place for moning coffee and watch the sun come up over the lake. In the evening relax as the sun goes down.

Lake House Deck
Tanning, Fire-Pit, Grills ,
Swimming, Dock for your boat

The Picnic area is an excellent for a place to work on your tan and watch the kids play in the lake. At sunset roast s'mores or a have winnie roast at the lakeside campfire and sip a cool beverage beverage while you wait for the grill to finish cooking that fish you caught this afternoon.

For the "grillers", there is a propane grill to do your dogs, burgers, ribs, chicken, etc. on the deck at the house.  Plenty of room for everyone to participate in the meal preparation.

2nd Floor

Blue Room & Bath
The Blue Room is located at the top of the stairs on the left. As you enter the room the quiet color of the walls offers a peaceful environment for relaxing. And the king bed is ready to take you to dreamland where nightmares don’t come.

This bedroom looks out over the lake and mountains behind the house. You can go out on the balcony and to watch the birds and the activities below and on the lake.

The bath has a two person jetted tub so you can enjoy a romantic evening or just get a water massage. On the other side of the bathroom is an aromatherapy steam shower. If you have never had a steam shower, now is the time to indulge yourself

Note: The light and fan knob are outside the room

Green Room & Bath
The Green Room is a serene room with its muted colors. This room can be made up with a king bed or twins.

Like the Blue Room, this room has a balcony for enjoying the sunrise and on the nights of the full moon – the moonrise. Softly as the sun sets, the night birds and night sounds come out.  Maybe one evening you will see deer grazing on the lawn below.  Or in the spring, geese swimming with their young trailing along behind.  Mom and Dad keeping a close eye.

Across from the bed is a cozy corner with a chair and bookshelf stocked with an eclectic collection of books.  If you happen to have a rainy day, this is a great place to curl up and lose yourself in another time or place via a good book.

There is a walk in shower with a window overlooking the lake and mountains.  Nothing like a nice hot shower to help you relax after an active day, or before you go to bed.
