A great place to stay! Clean, very comfortable, and great flow from the kitchen to the living room. The bedrooms and bathrooms had plenty of room, and each very private. We rented a pontoon boat and spent the day on the lake; it was great! Came back to the condo and grilled on the porch overlooking the lake; it doesn't get much better. I would highly recommend it, and we hope to be back soon!

We rented this condo as a girls weekend trip in February and could not have been more pleased with our accomodation. The condo hosts a breath-taking view of Watauga Lake with plenty of beautiful surroundings. The unit is extremely clean, welcoming and is perfect for a family or small group. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking to get away for a quiet weekend.

Our friends and us arrived at. Hillside Haven and was completely satisfied. It appeared we were the only ones at the villas during our stay. We were traveling on bikes so parking was not a problem. The villa was well furnished. The 2 master bedrooms with king size beds and their own bath was a plus. Everything was as described. The view was wonderful. Definitely recommend and will plan on a return visit in the future..

Manager response: Thank you Deborah for your nice comments. Watauga Lake and the surrounding mountains are truly stunning. At Hillside Haven, we treat your fun, relaxation, and activities like our own. Your unforgettable vacation experience starts and centers on your accommodations. We made Hillside Haven welcoming and relaxing while keeping the décor fresh, upscale, and user friendly. Ride safe and we will see you again soon for the autumn riding season.
I booked Hillside Haven thinking I was getting a "cabin in the mountains." Oh my! I was VERY pleasantly surprised! We were completely amazed at just how wonderful this place was! The best part was THE VIEW of beautiful, clear, peaceful, quiet Lake Watauga from both the living room balcony AND the upstairs bedroom balcony. It took my breath away. There was nothing that we needed that the owners had not thought to supply! Beautiful hardwood floors, open floor plan with the kitchen looking into the living room, overlooking the lake, fireplace, grill, dishes, with all new appliances (including waffle iron, blender, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, full size refrigerator, oven, full size washer/dryer). The kitchen was new. The bedrooms and bathrooms were big and up to date. There were plenty of towels, laundry soap. The place was SO clean. My family and I had a wonderful time there! It felt like home!! We cooked most meals, enjoyed swimming in the lake and hiking. There are MANY activities available that we just did not have time for because we were too busy relaxing on the porch :-) They allow dogs, which really increases you family enjoyment (if you have a dog.) We will tell all of our friends and will visit again!! Moody Family - Pennsylvania/Florida/Arkansas/Georgia

So...when can I plan my next trip??
So...when can I plan my next trip??
My mom and I needed some time away, no distractions, no worries, just quiet and calm. We found just that at Hillside Haven! Clean, accomodating, and comfortable, we never once said "oh, I wish we had....."; everything we needed was available. The view was, of course, breathtaking--looking out through the sliding windows at the lake and the mountains was truly a fantastic part of the experience. The beds were restful...the area quiet...in short, it was even more than we had anticipated! Our only question now is, when do we get to go back?!?!

About: Just like most folks who visit this mountain lake, we simply fell in love with the entire package. The quiet, laid back surroundings, welcoming neighbors, and endless recreational opportunities sealed the deal. Originally from Tennessee, we spent our precious vacation time on area lakes. After settling in North Carolina, we wanted a less crowded, more “out of the way” location for our family vacations. Since access to Watauga Lake is mostly by two lane highway, some days it feels like your own 6,000 acre private lake. Hillside Haven combines a unique lake view with mountainside comfort and nearby lake access. The intimate setting and private location provide peace and comfort for total relaxation. After an exciting day filled with NASCAR, whitewater rafting, kayaking, riding the twisty roads of “Highway 421 The Snake, or hiking the Appalachian Trail, Hillside Haven welcomes you back in elegant yet affordable comfort. Grilling on the large private deck or sipping wine by the stone fireplace complete your lake vacation in total relaxation. We love this life style and want to share it with you. Summer, fall, or winter, Hillside Haven is your answer to a weekend or month of luxury living with affordable rates at Watauga Lake.
Why Watauga Lake:
Watauga Lakes' remote location keeps the scenery pristine and the number of visitors low. Nearby are upscale restaurants and designer fashion shopping, alongside Mom and Pop eateries and local craftsmen. Whether you crave authentic Thai food or broiled ostrich, bacon and eggs with grits and gravy or seven layer chocolate lover’s cake, neighborhood restaurants have it covered. The area offers so many water sports that a week is hardly time to enjoy them all. Try pleasure boating on the sparkling waters, making your own waves on a Jet Ski or wave runner, or fishing the abundant game fish. Bring your own boat or rent one from several full service marinas. The Watauga River offers kayaking, rafting, and trout fishing in its chilly waters. More adventurous rivers offer class III rapids and more. Nine local public and private golf courses make for an enjoyable outing. The Appalachian Trail runs parallel to the lake at altitudes exceeding 2000 feet. Waterfalls, hiking trails, abundant wildlife, and no crowds make the Watauga Lake area truly awesome getaway for a weekend, a week, or longer. Why did we decide to buy at Watauga Lake? It called to me and I answered YES! Whether you stay at Hillside Haven or another fine lodging, give Watauga Lake a try, you may say YES! also.
