About Justin Nevill

Our family of six lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. When we vacation to one of the amazing places this earth has to offer we have a tradition of asking the locals where they go to vacation. If you already live in paradise, where in the world would you vacation to? Well folks in Hawaii say Fiji, and folks in Boone, NC say Watauga Lake. So when we were looking for a vacation home of our own to serve as a place of respite and rejuvenation, we started that search at Watauga Lake. We couldn't be happier with the amazing home we are now blessed to be able to call our own!

                                                              Beautiful setting, amazing house!

                                                              Jennifer W.

                                                              Beautiful and spacious house that was well equipped. Only 30 mins to Boone, Nc and 5 mins from lake and winery.

                                                              relaxing stay

                                                              Adrienne L.

                                                              My google ap took me right to the property. Turning from the lane into the driveway is a thrill ride! The reflectors at the driveway were not so visible because they had gotten rotated. The view is exactly as the picture! The accommodations were very clean and as described. The kitchen area was well equipped with everything needed to prepare meals. Everything for cleaning and plastic and paper goods were either in the kitchen or the hall closet. Pleasantly surprised with all the basic supplies and condiments. The ice maker was not working. The washer and dryer were a godsend because my daughter had to wash the baby's soiled clothes. I could have used some directions for using the four remotes. Nice selection of movies on dvd; but I couldn't figure out how to play them. We saw some wildlife including bald eagles, lizards, a black widow spider,and wasps. The wasps find the area under the deck an ideal place to call home. Fortunately owners had anticipated this and had plenty of Wasp spray on hand. Very few pesky insects such as mosquitos. There are two jet skis stored in the garage; I 'm not sure if that was the reason the garage reeked of gasoline. We had thought about using the grill to cook out a meal but the propane tank was completely empty. We didn't want to by a whole new tank to cook one meal so we didn't use the grill and cooked inside. Wished we had just brought our tank from home. The hot tub was a highlight for me and used it every day--eyes fixed on the spectacular view. The baby was enthralled with sitting on the deck watching the leaves blowing in the wind. The house is built on such a steep slope that it feels like your in a treehouse. The fire circle is rudimentary; it was adequate for making s'mores. I sat on one of the logs watching the the fire burn down but none of my family was willing to sit on the other log or rocks with me. Overall we had a relaxing weekend in beautiful location. I would stay here again for a getaway weekend.

                                                              Beautiful house and view! Serene setting!

                                                              Jackie C.Asheville, NC

                                                              The house was very clean and comfortable. Beautiful view from house and hot tub. You really do feel like you are on the top of a mountain! Wheelchair users should keep in mind that although the house and hot tub are accessible, the commode doors are not wide enough for a wheelchair and the beds are comfortable but very high. The lake is amazing! Justin was responsive to our questions. We had a wonderful stay and definitely would recommend this beautiful place!

                                                              What a great place to stay!

                                                              The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The view was fantastic! What a beautiful part of the country. We will be back. Brought the family (daughter 18, son 15 and wife) to this house. Everyone was a bit nervous, as we have never been to eastern TN, before. We loved it and the kids want to come back next year.

                                                              I had a ton of questions for Justin, before (and after) we booked. He was very patient with me and got back to me. Thank you!

                                                              The ONLY problem we had was the internet and cell phone connections. Cell phone was very spotty and the internet was slow - these are not Justin's fault, just a remote area. It ended up working out - made everyone disconnect.
