About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Thrasher's Nest is a three story cedar cabin built in 2007, overlooking Watauga Lake, said to be the third cleanest lake in the county. Our cabin has 3 bedrooms a loft, 2 1/2 baths, and sleeps 10 comfortably. Soak in the large, six person hot tub or just enjoy the views of the Cherokee National Forest and Watauga River Gorge from the large deck.

The bottom floor has a master bedroom plus another bedroom, a bathroom, and large laundry room. The main floor has another full tile bath, beautiful kitchen with black granite tiled counter tops, and access to the deck. Both bathrooms feature beautiful tile, large jetted tubs, and rainfall shower heads. Upstairs you will find another bedroom with two queen beds, a half bath, and a loft area with a day bed, foosball table, and TV with PlayStation and other games.

Dock your boat or jet ski, fish, take a trip in our canoe, or just enjoy swimming from the included dock and dedicated boat slip. Other amenities include a washer and dryer, all major appliances, hair dryer, central air, gas fireplace, satellite TV, and free wireless internet. Linens, towels, dishes, utensils, and cookware are provided. We also provide a high chair and portable crib (sheets not provided) in this family friendly home. Pets are welcome for a small pet fee.

Aside from fishing the 13 species of game fish in the lake, swimming, and boating, there are many other outdoor activities in the area year round.

Hawksnest provides snow tubing and zip lining.

Beech Mountain is a great place for skiing, snow tubing, snow boarding, and ice skating.

Sugar Mountain also has great ski slopes.

Wahoo Adventures and Mountain Adventure Guide offer rafting and other outdoor adventures.

Tweetsie Railroad is a great stop for families.

Grandfather Mountain is the highest peak in the Blue Ridge Mountains. View the animal habitats, including bears, cougars, and river otters, or walk across the mile high swinging bridge.

We hope you take the opportunity to rest and relax in our cabin while spending your time enjoying the lake, nature, and each other!

Beautiful setting and great setup for the 5 of us and 3 dogs! Very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a fabulous Christmas stay at Thrashers Nest! Everything we needed was available! Having the 3 floors worked great for my son & wife on the top floor with their 2 dogs and my daughter in one room on the bottom floor and my husband and our dog In the other room! The deck was fabulous.... lots of room and worked well with the dogs and could close the gates so they could not get out! The weather just didn't cooperate the best! But nothing can be done about that! There are only a few things I just want to mention.....the description of the cabin does not say exactly say how steep the roadway up and the driveway were! We had expected to do a lot more hiking/walking and the very steep hill prevented a lot of that! Also.... my daughter had mentioned to you the smell in one of the downstairs bedrooms.....but after opening the doors and windows it finally aired out! And the oven was very dirty! We cooked just about every day in the oven.... and the first night it smoked quite a bit due to the oven being so dirty! It really needed a good cleaning! And some of the cupboards were rather dirty! And some of the jets on the hot tub did not work.... don't know if it was operator error but maybe a manual on how to operate would be useful! Beside that.... we had a very enjoyable stay... couch is very comfy.... the beds not as comfy but they worked! I hope you get a lot of rain this spring to fill the lake....it is such a beautiful area! Thank you for the use of your property.... it was a great experience!

Great getaway with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place to celebrate our five year anniversary with good friends. The space was cozy and welcoming. We ate well and loved the hot tub overlooking the lake. I only wish the beds were a little more comfortable.

Amazing views, beautiful cabin and so peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cabin was incredible. Everything you could need is there and everything was very clean. The view is beyond beautiful. Everything was better than the pictures. The beautiful colors of the leaves were a sight to behold. The Goods were so pleasant and easy to work with. The area is so pretty around there and we look forward to coming back. .

This place is absolutely gorgeous. You cannot beat the views from here, and the owners are very good with communicating. We will definitely be coming back. Very nice place to sit back and relax and just enjoy the views. There is also great fishing and boating available as well. Just a wonderful place all around. Thank you!

Very nice house.

  • 4 of 5

Great house with view of mountains and lake. Our family spent the days on the lake and hiking to a nearby waterfall. The area around the house is very scenic and quiet. Walk from house to lake is kind of steep, but doable. It is much easier to drive down the mountain. I recommend visiting Thrasher's Nest.
