About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Catnapper Couch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Laurels Cabin is part of our 'rustic lodge'. Our lodge is located on the banks of the beautiful Watauga River, halfway between Johnson City and Elizabethton. The lodge was designed to resemble a horse barn and sits on 5 acres with over 600 feet of river frontage and consists of 3 cabins.

The upstairs Laurels Cabin has over 600 square feet of living space. The cabin has a queen bed, cat napper sofa, one full bath, along with a full kitchen and living area. The Laurels cabin can accommodate 2-4 comfortably. The living room has a cat napper couch so the couch reclines almost flat in case you wish to sleep on it.

All linens are included -- all you have to do is pick up some food and bring your personal items -- all other items will be provided for you! The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cookware, toaster, coffee maker and microwave.

The cabin has heat/air conditioning, ceiling fan, flat screen satellite TV, DVD/VCR, central laundry facility and gas grill.

Very convenient to both Johnson City and Elizabethton (10 minutes) as well as Roan Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain and Hawksnest ski resorts (45-60 minutes). Immediately adjacent to the lodge is the Watauga River which is about 100 feet wide and is home to some of the finest trout fishing in the Eastern United States. Trout species in the Watauga River are Rainbow, Brook and Brown as well as several types of Bass and various non-game species. This lower part of the Watauga has been designated as the 'Quality Trout Zone.'

We have other cabins available please call for dates and prices.

Watauga River Cabins

Year Purchased: 2004

About: My father built the cabins so other people could enjoy the area as much as we do. I am a Tennessee Real Estate Broker and have been for around 11 years, I also manage the cabins for my family. Brian Whidden

Why Johnson City, TN, USA:
Very conveniently located on the Watauga River and between Elizabethton and Johnson City. This property has been in our family for generations and thought other people would enjoy it as much as we have.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The river property came into my mother’s family in the 1890’s. My great grandfather built the family homestead. In 1901 (pre-dam) a flood came and damaged the home. With mules and logs they moved the 3,000 square foot, 2 story home across the creek and placed it on higher ground. Before the dam was built in the mid 1940’s, the river would sometimes look like a creek, at other times it would rise and come out its 50 foot banks. In the winter, the river would freeze and my great grandparents would cut squares of ice from the river and bury it in their home for later use. Before the bridge, there was a natural shelf that allowed the horse and buggies to cross the river in front of the cabins. The ground was farmed until I received it in 2003. My mother was raised on the property, until she married my father in 1947 and moved to Florida. We vacationed here every year, so I have always loved this place. I wanted a place of my own but hated the idea of having it sit empty most of the time. I am in the rental business in Florida so I decided to build something that could be rented when we are not able to be here. At that time, there were no buildings on the property, so I was able to start from scratch. I really like the character of horse barns and thought, why not build one that could house people. So, in 2004, the dream became a reality. We hope you choose us for your lodging in East Tennessee. We know you will enjoy it. - Gary and Patty Whidden
