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 one with a single bed. Above the bedrooms there is a loft with a double bed and a low ceiling.
There is no washer and dryer yet. We provide clean linens at no charge but leave the beds stripped in case you bring your own. Most renters charge for linens so this was our idea for a fair trade. You make the bed for free linens.
Out the back door the creek cascades down into the river and where they meet you will find kayaks and a little swim hole. Hike around the river for some big swim holes and perfect fishing spots. It’s a short drive to Lakeshore Marina and even closer to Fish Springs, Mallard Cove and Pioneer Landing Marinas. 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. 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 a zip line to the island. You are getting a mini adventure package when you choose to rent the Cabinito!!
