About the property

Amazing Mountain Lake Views, Wifi, Hot Tub, Dock/Canoes, Fire Pit, Cozy Cabin.

Cedar 3 story cabin, 3000 sq ft. Towers over Watauga Lake with amazing mountain and lake views. Community dock with 2 canoes. Sleeps 9. Bottom floor has laundry, 2 full baths and 3 bedrooms: 1 queen, 1 queen, and bunk with trundle (3 singles). All bedrooms open up onto decking with mountain and lake views. Main floor has full kitchen with all appliances/dishes (2 refrigerators), counter bar with stools, open great room with 3 couches around stone fireplace, large flat screen tv with DVD, game/pub table, dining table and half bath. Sliding glass doors front, side & back open up onto decking with hot tub, grill, seating, picnic table, and outdoor covered dining table. Top 3rd floor has vaulted ceiling and a wall of glass overlooking the lake and mountains. Large sitting area with futon couch, king bed, desk, tv, full bathroom and private balcony. Long range view is amazing! Linens, towels, bedding, provided. Paved driveway with outdoor fire pit and seating.

What you can expect: You'll receive many unique benefits as our guest. The location of the cabin offers lake and mountain activities year around. Summer mountain air is warm and the lake is refreshing, fall leaves over the mountains are absolutely beautiful reflecting on the lake, spring offers cool hiking weather with beautiful wild flowers blooming, and winter snow covered mountains are lovely to view from the cozy cabin or hot tub. Views from the cabin are second to none.

Suggested Area Activities:

There are many things to do: hiking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, biking, skiing, white water rafting, wine tasting and most of all, relaxing.

Watauga Lake has 106 miles of shoreline. More than half of Watauga Lake's shoreline lies within the Cherokee National Forest and cannot be developed. The lake is very clean since it is mountain spring fed. The Raven provides 2 canoes locked at the community dock. The location of the boat dock is close and just a few mins walk or a mins drive down the mountain. There are public boat launches close by and local marinas to rent a boat. This where you would launch your boat, buy gas and store your trailer if you brought your own watercraft.

There are many great hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail which goes along Watauga Lake. There is a local winery called Watauga Lake Winery which offers wine tastings and other fun activities throughout the year. There are several local restaurants where you can dine while looking over the lake and mountains.

Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, Grandfather Mountain and Linville are all close by with many activities, stores and restaurants too.

The views were breathtaking!! Loved the hot tub and all the wrap around porches. We had a blast in the canoes and going down to the river.

Beautiful property! Pictures dont do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing. It was a difficult drive up the driveway but you never want to leave once you are up there. The views are gorgeous, especially in the morning! Lori was so great, allowing us to be flexible with our check out time. She keeps the house completely stocked and ready for a full house. I have never done vrbo until now but I can tell you that this wont be my last time at The Raven. Thank you for sharing your incredible home!

Not what it looks like in the Photos!

We arrived 1 hr. early but it would not let us in because the lock was set to a certain time. We finally got a hold of the Owner and she was nice enough to reset the lock to let us in. We dropped our Luggage and went to the nearest Store ( which is many Miles away ) to get a few Items for Supper and Breakfast. Upon our Return we unloaded and were ready for a Shower. Well, first I had to wash the towels because they were smelly and grimy. Upon further Inspection of the Property, everything was old and Dirty. Couches have holes, Oven is covered in old Grease, Outdoor Grill and Utensils beyond filthy. Deck Furniture stained, mildewed and rusted. Not 1 TV Remote was working in Master ( Batteries dead ). Had to call Direct TV to have them send a Ping so we could watch some TV. I could not rent another Cabin because everyone required a 2 day minimum stay. I did call the Owner and explained the Situation. She was going to send the cleaning Lady but I told her not to bother because cleaning the Oven and whatever else takes more than a few hours. Not to mention the Grill. This place needs a Paint Job badly. The last bedroom on the right smelled like Mildew. Very old Mattresses and old Comforters. The only high lite there was the Hot Tub since it was New. We did get our Cleaning Deposit Refunded which we appreciate , but we really did not have a relaxing time there since I had to clean something every time. We left the place cleaner than what is was when we arrived. The Owner did apologize!!! However, that did not make it any better. I wanted a Mini Vacation without having to work. I wish I could post the pictures that we took. We will not return to this Cabin! Butler TN is very beautiful and quiet. So if you want a nice Get Away in a really quiet Place than Butler TN is for you. ( I suggest that some Curtains be put in the Living Room so one can watch TV without being blinded by the daylight if the weather is bad and you have to stay in. Master Bedroom could use some Darkening Curtains as well. Screens should be in all Windows so they can be opened.
