Watauga Lake cabin description

This beautifully appointed, very unique, custom built cabin is now available to rent, either nightly or by the week. Aptly named “The Tree House” for the trees, in the house! Whether it’s for Summer recreation, Fall foliage or winter skiing, it is a perfect place for a romantic honeymoon, family getaway, couples getaway or family reunion. Located on pristine Watauga Lake, you have access to 106 miles of shoreline and are surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest. The lake and mountain views from this cabin are spectacular.

The Tree House is the perfect place to 'escape' the daily grind and enjoy nature's beauty from the comfort of a well-equipped lakeside cabin. It is a short walk to the private marina and gazebo, where there is a 30 foot covered boat slip for your boat or jet ski, a 2 person kayak for your use or a 24 foot Bennington Fish and Cruise Pontoon, for rent exclusively by Tree House guests. You can be busy every minute, or simply sit by the water's edge and relax.

Pet Policy: Well behaved pets are welcome with an extra security deposit of $150, and an additional $25 cleaning fee. Pets must be spayed or neutered, current on all vaccines and treated with some form of topical flee treatment, like Frontline, one week prior to arrival.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: For years, my husband and I have been looking for a 4-season place to get 'out of the rat race'. We love the outdoors, and wanted a place to do it all-hike, boat, snow ski, fish, golf, horseback ride....and relax. This past Fall, we finally discovered Watauga Lake and The Tree House. It is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places we have seen. We immediately fell in love with it and hope you will too!
