Overview

About the property

Fisherman's Dream is ideal for any fisherman, family or corporate getaway. We offer a beautiful lot with wade out fishing, mountainous views and the tranquility we all need these days. Property includes all linens, fully equipped kitchen, washer & drier, gas grill, TV & WiFi, and both a gas and wood burning fire pit. All you have to pack is your fishing pole and personal items. We will provide the rest!

Fisherman's Dream has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed that will sleep 2. The other two bedrooms each have 2 full sized beds that could easily allow this property to sleep 10!

Located just 5 minutes to the quaint city of Elizabethton, you can find great local eateries such as the famous Ridgewood BBQ and LoneStar Steakhouse. If you don't want make the trip to town or fry your catch of the day, delivery is available. The grocery store and package stores are 5 minutes away, yet you still have the tranquil setting of a mountain retreat! It is truly the best of both worlds.

Bristol Motor Speedway is only 15 minutes away!! It 's a perfect way to spend race weekend; fish in the day and race at night!!! Roan Mountain State Park, Watauga Lake, and the Jonesborough Storytelling Festival are also very convenient to this property. The Storytelling Festival is about 45 minutes away.

The Watuaga River offers the some of the best trout fishing in the entire USA! With approximately 2000 fish per acre (yes, you read that correctly). Trout species in the Watauga River are Rainbow, Brook and Brown. There are also various non-game species. This property is almost halfway down the river. It is perfect for taking a lunch break, refilling the cooler, or just stretching your legs before you continue down stream.

Did I mention that right outside the back door of this property is what I call "The Church Hole?" Fisherman almost always stop to fish this location and usually catch something. You can also sit on the bank and just cast a few if you aren't up for wading in the river.

Fisherman's Dream has something to offer everyone. We hope to see you soon.

Very clean, comfortable and plenty of space for my family. Enjoyed the fishing!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just perfect for my family's needs. We were in town for the recent opening of the historic Sabine Hill (Taylor home) as we are direct decadents. We throughly enjoyed the fishing as well as all the nature right in the back yard. We felt very at home and extremely comfortable. We would most certainly return. Thank you for your hospitality.

Beautiful views and quiet mornings

  • 5 of 5

We visited Elizabethton and Jonesborough for the first time for a Storytelling Festival. While the event was a lot of fun it was also exhausting. It was great to come back to the house and relax with the quiet and tranquil scenery.

Clean and Serene

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Fisherman's Dream while visiting my daughter who attends King University in Bristol, Tennessee. This property was perfect as it accommodated our family size. With the river for fishing, the fire pit for the evening, and a great backyard for corn hole and play, everyone had a great time. We must not forget to mention the serenity of being riverside with the views and sounds of nature.
