About the Property
The Watauga River Cabinito
A lovely little cabin resting on the sun speckled banks of the Watauga River. Nestled between the AWA takeout for the Watauga Gorge Run & Cherokee National Forest. At the end of a dirt road and over a little creek & you find The Cabinito awaiting you. As you walk in to our small cozy cabin from the front or back porch you enter the kitchen/living/dining room. From there you can see a bathroom and 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and a tv/dvd, and one with a double/twin bunk bed. Above the bedrooms there is a loft with a queen bed, a low ceiling and the couch that folds out into a double bed. Out the back door the creek cascades down into the river and where they meet you will find kayaks, intertubes, and a little swim hole. Hike around the river for some big swim holes and perfect fishing spots. Or take a short drive down the road 3 miles to the Watauga Lake and Pioneer Landing Marina. Located 18 miles (30 minutes) to Boone NC and 35 miles (1hour) drive to Johnson City or Bristol TN. There is spotty cell reception at the cabinito; closest reception is 2 miles away. No internet but it does have an honest land line that will call anyone you might want to talk to. Take a break and enjoy the reprise from cell phones ringing & internet pinging and enjoy the dappled sunlight and the pristine waters of Watuga river, one of the most beautiful rivers in the Appalachian mountains! Included in the rental price are the options for kayaks and bicycles!!!...so you're getting a virtual adventure package when you choose to rent the Cabinito!!

About the owner: We're the coolest people on the planet.
Why the Owner Chose Butler, TN, USA:
We have a 24 acre farm on the Watauga River and when the opportunity arose to purchase additional acreage with a cabin bordering our farm, we didnt hesitate even a moment because we know how beautiful the cabin and its surroundings are and secondly because of the rarity of the opportunity. We love renovating, building and decorating... the Cabinito offered us all that and more! We're enjoying the process of seeing it become more and more hospitable with amenities being added frequently.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The feeling of being away from it all in a rustic cabin with old growth trees and a wild river flowing gives us a feeling of relaxation unparalleled by other vacation experiences. Bordered on the Cherokee National forest you are literally away from development and the disappointment of stumbling on a housing development or strip mall in the middle of nowhere. If you enjoy deep relaxation, you will find it here. And don't forget that included in the rental price are options for boats and bicycles!
