Set on the side of a mountain in the middle of a forest , the cabin has a little stream and waterfall you can see from the screened-in porch, as well as wonderful views of nearby mountains. It is only about 3 miles from Elizabethton but set in a private location with parking right by the cabin. Close by there are places to fish, kayak, raft, swim and walk trails, including the Appalachian Trail, if you are a nature lover. Or, if you are into antiques, there are many shops close by and also fleamarkets. Elizabethton boasts being the home of Sycamore Shoals State Park where there are re-enactments during July and many spring, summer and fall festivals. Roan Mountain State Park is within 40 minutes and in June is known for its Rhodendron Festival. Close by is the Bristol Speedway which hosts the Nascar Races every March and September. There are three lakes in the area - one only about 30 minutes away -and several rivers. There truly is something for everyone!
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We are originally from Ohio and when Juri retired we decided to build here in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee. When we purchased the land the cabin was already here and that is where we and our four cats lived for 16 months. It is cozy, has the waterfall right next to it and has a beautiful view. We was sad to move out as it is so lovely - but now we make great new acquaintances and friends from all over the US through our renters. The area is so lovely, there is so much to do and people are so friendly - it is a great place!
Why the Owner Chose Elizabethton: We were buying for the convenience of living there and having a 'guest house' for friends and family and it just became more than that.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The view of the valley and the mountains across the valley is awesome. There are lots of birds and an occasional deer, bobcat, turkey, raccoon and even, very occasionally, a bear. There is lots to do outdoors in the surrounding communities and lots of festivals in the summer. Antique shops and flea markets flourish here. Big events include Nascar Races and the Storytelling Festival. And if you are seeking peace and privacy the cabin provides that too - even though we are only 4 miles out of Elizabethton.
