Great Cabin at Lake Watauga
We come up here every year. We have stayed in a few cabins in this area. I would deffintly reccomend this cabin to a friend. The only think that needs to be done is new porch furniture. The current outdoor peices are worn out and falling apart. Just bring some camping chairs with you and enjoy the amazing views. Everything else in the cabin is top notch.
We had a wonderful weekend at Thrasher's Nest! The view was amazing and the cabin was clean and had everything we needed for our big group. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the stars at night were incredible. The only feedback we would have is a few more blankets as the temperature didn't seem to want to change on the thermostat! Thank you for having us!
Perfect get away spot!
The cabin was amazing. Like most other reviews state, cabin is well stocked, views are great, lots to do with being close to Boone and surrounding areas. If you've never driven in the mountains before, the windy roads up can be a little scary for some. We had 9 people with us and the cabin fit us all comfortably. The bathrooms are nice, the kitchen has pretty much everything you could need to cook at the cabin, there is a grill outside which is nice, and the hot tub was nice also. Also, Emily responded quickly when we had questions, even with it being the holiday season. I saw a lot of complaints about getting lost by gps, that being said, Emily provides detailed instructions on how to get to the cabin which help make it easy to find. Only thing I will say about getting to the cabin, at one point going up, there is 1 of two lefts you have to take, take the one that goes up higher, and then you have to take the 2nd right. I don't remember the instructions mentioning either of these. Hope to be able to stay here again some day. Thank you Emily for letting us stay in your cabin.
Thrasher's Nest was beautiful. Lots of room to spread out. Beautiful view. All of the necessary amenities were provided. Convenient to Boone and Banner Elk area. We'd stay there again.
The cabin was nicely furnished and had all the supplies we needed. It was clean and very comfortable. Our only complaint was that it was hard to find as there was no sign on the cabin. I would not recommend driving to it in the dark. Overall we had a great stay!
Located 41 miles from Bristol Motor Speedway.
Located 30-45 minutes from Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk, and ski mountains.
