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.
