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.

Overall a nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. We fished directly from the yard for a few days until the water release was too high for wading. We enjoyed the river side patio, fire pit and covered deck. Cooking was a challenge as the knives we're dull and there wasn't a large fry pan. The ambiance was a bit busy for our tastes but having the river in the backyard helped. Overall a nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We strive to make sure every guest is 100% satisfied. I will give the knives a closer look. However, the large frying pan had been tucked away in the very back of the cabinet. Thanks again for coming and we hope to see you back someday. Angie

Loved it !!

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is awesome. It's nothing fancy but super clean and tons of space. We live out of town but I grew up in the area. So we like to stay here while visiting family. Even though fishing isn't our thing, our 16 yr old son tested the water and came out with several trout. So it truly must be a fisherman's dream. Our 16 yr old daughter enjoyed wading in the river which in areas is only 6 inch deep.

We enjoyed all the outdoor space ! Chairs right by the river, a natural wood burning fire-pit in the back yard and a gas firepit on the back porch. All with beautiful river views.

We really enjoy this gem and hope to rent again next time we are in town.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family fishing trip. The accommodations were great and the location could not be better. We were able to cook breakfast and dinner in the kitchen and we enjoyed a fire in the fire pit.
