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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Raven!! Lori was such a pleasure to work with and we can’t thank her enough for everything.

Cabin was perfect! Our kids enjoyed spending Christmas there! We even woke up to our very first snow. It wasn’t much but it was beautiful. The hot tub is amazing!!! It’s a bit of a ride to town, we’re the types who need to go often, but if you get everything you may need you shouldn’t have to leave. There was lots of room. Bottom floor is pretty chilly.

Thanks Lori for a great, away from home, Christmas experience.

The Raven Cabin is beautiful!! Our families loved it. We had Thanksgiving here.

  • 5 of 5

We had Thanksgiving here and it was perfect! The kitchen was well stocked. Me and the other mom really admired the kitchen for that. The house was spotless and very comfortable. All the bedrooms were neat. The bedroom upstairs has an amazing view! We used it as the movie room for the adults. The only downside was the wifi. Kodi and Firestick didn't work well on more than 1 device, but the house has cable so it was all good. Kinda forced us to enjoy our stay :) The weather was nice so we decided to go canoeing. We popped corn& made smores over the fire pit. We enjoyed every bit of the Raven. Hot tub superb. Thanks Lori we'd love to come again.

The property is beautiful and the view is outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and the view from the upper level deck was amazing. We spent one day on the lake and explored once we got out of our canoes. Then that evening we had a bonfire and s’mores to finalize the trip. Lori, responded back to me immediately when I had a question. I would recommend this home to anyone. I hope to go back next year and stay again.

Beautiful Mountain Cabin in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect size for our family group and the spectacular view from all bedrooms was amazing. We also enjoyed the canoes on Watauga Lake and the fire pit was perfect for makes smores. Another favorite amenity was the hot tub. The kitchen is well equipped and the second refrigerator is a very nice addition. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and so close to the lake. The best part was the outside campfire area and of course the jacuzzi! Loved it.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Nice property, with beautiful view and helpful owners. The house was nicely appointed, with a very open living area. The lake amenities are a very generous touch from owners, though the weather kept us from being able to utilize. Easy to access lake, though not directly attached to house(60 second drive down hill)

The beds were a little rough on us downstairs, but still private and nice bathrooms. Enjoyed our stay!
