The property featured is a newly built 2,000 sq. ft. "upscale rustic" lodge. The lodge is located at the headwaters of the trophy trout section on the beautiful Watauga River. The lodge was built using mostly reclaimed wood from local tobacco barns. From the barn wood kitchen cabinets, to the tobacco flooring and siding, this lodge is truly unique. Even though we just completed the lodge this past winter, it looks as though it has been there for a hundred years. From using a whiskey barrel to hold a faucet to rusty metal ceilings, this lodge is truly one of a kind. The lodge is equipped with all modern appliances and a fully equipped kitchen. Hand made barn wood cabinets and granite counter tops makes this kitchen an inviting place to cook and enjoy family time.
Relax on our Back Deck: A guest favorite…our back deck is the place to enjoy the great outdoors while watching the river go by. You might even see someone catching a fish! Featuring a stone wood burning fireplace, an outdoor kitchen area, and teak furniture & rocking chairs – this relaxed setting is the perfect place to unwind. This section of the Watauga River is a fisherman's paradise! You can walk off the large covered back porch down to a wadable river to fish, kayak, or watch wildlife.
Located on a country road, you would think you are a long way from civilization, but travel four miles down the road and you can pick up anything you need. The lodge is fully equipped with linens and all household items. All you need to bring is personal items and food.
We have been planning this lodge for a long time & we hope you will enjoy it as much we do! We look forward to meeting you!
