About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, plus loft (sleep 6) with downriver views of the Watauga River

The view is pure magic! Just 20 minutes from Bristol and the TriCities Regional Airport. With 2 bedrooms, a loft, and 2.5 bathrooms - the cabin has been thoughtfully positioned to achieve a downriver view of the Watauga River. The view is visible from the front doors to the massive 16 foot stretch of sliding glass back doors. The house is tastefully furnished in an upscale mountain house fashion with custom log and stone accents throughout the interior and exterior of the home. The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a huge island that seats 4, plus another 6 at the dining room table. This home follows the open concept plan with kitchen, living, and dining open to one another all with comfortable well maintained furnishings. The master bedroom suite is also located downstairs with king-size bed, walk-in closet and full master bath with both jacuzzi and walk-in shower. The upstairs features a large loft living room with 2nd bedroom with adjoining 3 piece bathroom and a small office tucked away in the back of the loft when you just need to get a little work done. There is a sofa bed in the loft as well as 2 power home theater chairs. There is a large projector screen but you would need to bring your own portable projector. There is a 42" TV in the loft and a 46" TV in the Living Room both equipped with DirecTV service. The large 40' x 16' porch is equipped with rocking chairs, outdoor dining table and chairs and a hammock plus the incredible view of the river. Watch the fly fisherman and kayakers navigate their way over the shoals. There is a walkway to the river plus a room size flat rock to fish from on this beautiful trophy section of the river. This cabin serves the guest looking for a more quiet retreat. This house is not recommended for children or pets due to the depth and swiftness of the river at this location. This cabin is within walking distance of the Watauga River Cabins and directly across the river from the Watauga River Lodge and Outfitter. The caretaker lives on the property and will verify number and ages of guests for safety concerns as well as the terms of the rental agreement. Free wifi is provided. The cabin is located about 5 miles from I-26 off the HIghway 91 exit. The cabin rests halfway between Johnson City and Elizabethton in the Central Community.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are citrus growers and I am also a college professor who enjoys our occasional stint to come up here and cool off from our hot Florida summers. We also really enjoy the leaf season, and Christmas when it chooses to snow.

Why the Owner Chose Johnson City, TN, USA:
This unique property has been in the Smalling/Davis family for over 150 years. Our great-grandfather had a sand mine operation (rare for the mountains) in the area and used some of those funds to invest in Florida Orange Groves back in the 1920's. Several generations later, we sold a small bit of our groves in Florida to build this cabin for our future retirement house. We love Florida but we really love Tennessee and this special place on the river. We hope you enjoy it and treasure it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
From a fly fisherman's perspective - you can walk down the walkway to a huge flat rock - almost 20 ft. in length (room size) that creates the perfect perch in which to fly fish from plus the river is tremendously calming. If you are not a fisherman - just know that sitting on the porch is a fine hobby and you will be so content to watch the river go by.
