2 BD/2 BA lakefront chalet on a secluded private cove. Kayaks/Canoe included.
Beautiful private LAKEFRONT Chalet on 2.8 acres on Watauga Lake. Gorgeous lake access and views of lake and mountains from every part of the house. Step out onto the porch with morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail to relax in privacy with breathtaking views. Cozy home with jetted tub and fully stocked kitchen. Walk down the steps to your secluded cove (with only one neighbor) to jump in the 3rd cleanest lake in the country! Your private cove is separated from the main lake by a private peninsula and other houses are miles away. Paddle one of the chalet’s kayaks from your private dock to fish, view the bald eagles nest or simply explore the 105 miles of national forest that border the lake.
- Watch your kids and friends swim from the porch.
-Grill out on the commercial grade gas grill listening to your tunes on the Bluetooth sound bar, while you forget your cares and make new memories!
-- Gather around the bonfire sharing stories of a day on the lake and looking at the extensive views of the water and national forest.
- Fish from the dock, or take a kayak or your boat down the nearby Elk River. Skiers and wake boarders can easily ski from the cove on some of the least trafficked parts of the lake (not that ANY part of the lake is crowded!)
Boat & paddleboard rentals are available at the local marinas, or you can use our BOAT LAUNCH RAMP to launch your own boat- tie it up to the dock, or pontoons can beach right across from the Chalet.

WHY VISIT WATAUGA LAKE?
Watauga Lake is one of the most beautiful and clean recreational lakes (3rd cleanest in the country) on the eastern seaboard. It’s located in the Cherokee National forest with 105 miles of shoreline. More than half of the lake is bordered by undeveloped national forest. Watauga lake is great for boating, jet-skiing, tubing, skiing/wakeboarding, fishing, swimming, kayaking etc.
You can easily take day trips to whitewater rafting, a local winery, hike the Appalachian trail or Roan Mountain (known for gorgeous views, rhododendron forests, and cross country skiing) or find a secluded waterfall (we’ve got maps at the chalet). Drive to the thriving college town of Boone, NC 45 minutes away (check the concert schedule!), or visit the popular Banner Elk and Blowing Rock, NC.
The summers are sunny and warm during the day with no mosquitoes (incredible, but true!), and the evenings cool off in the 60’s – making the nights extremely pleasant. Autumn brings beautiful fall colors with even better views. In the winter time, skiing is a popular option at nearby Beech Mountain. Lake Hideaway Chalet is truly a wonderland of recreational activity!

About Karen Lally
Karen Lally: As an Asheville, North Carolina native, I love all things outdoors, great food, and craft beer. I am an avid cyclist turned crossfitter. We have 3 dogs and two cats, and love to get the dogs into the woods as much as possible. We always gravitate to home rentals for our vacations extensively throughout the US and Europe, as we love the personal touch and non-touristy feel. Therefore, we know what makes a good vacation rental! I am an avid foodie, and appreciate a little luxury as the years go by! Kim Watson is co-owner of the Lake Hideaway Chalet. She is responsible for all details and finishing touches—if you find a special detail or something you love when you stay at our rental, she is responsible for making it happen. If I’m not available, she will most likely take care of your needs.
Karen Lally purchased this Chalet in 2016
Why Karen Lally chose Butler
This property is our dream home! We have camped on Watauga lake for many years, boating by lakefront properties and dreaming big. We have worked hard to make that dream become a reality with this house, and are excited to share it with you! When we found this house we knew we had to own it: it's private, it's gorgeous, and it's right on the lake. Everything we wanted in a Lake house! Watauga is like no other-- warm during the days, cool evenings, no mosquitoes and relatively uninhabited. Boat traffic is minimal during all parts of the day, and the lake is huge!
What makes this Chalet unique
Gorgeous Views, easy lake access, private and secluded with no noisy neighbors or shared lake access. The solitude is dreamy. The interior of the chalet has a lake house get-a-away cabin feel, with tons of wood, a big bright interior with lake views from everyroom, and skylights!

Quiet and Serene
Although the road getting to the chalet was very narrow, once we arrived to our destination, the area was very quiet and peaceful. The view of the lake was wonderful to look at. We also enjoyed the ability to go on canoe trips. We also were able to do some hiking in the area. The chalet was well equipped with the essentials and beyond and was very clean and neat. We found the bed to be very comfortable. The host was also very personable and accommodating and made us feel welcome.
We had a great time. We loved the lake and kayaks and canoe. We fully appreciate that they allow pets. It was clean and comfortable.
Great place to go to get away from busy lifestyles
Karen was very easy to work with and we really enjoyed our stay. Our four boys loved the remote location and the lake, even though we didn't get to enjoy any lake activities. We stayed there for the long MLK weekend in 2018 to go snowboarding at Beach Mountain. It was a little further than I originally thought but the drive to/from the slopes through the mountains was gorgeous.
Great house and fantastic vacation!
This house was really beautiful and was just what we were expecting. The view from the front porch was amazing! It was also a plus that the house was stocked with everything we needed. We ended up using the kitchen quite a bit and it was just like home. Another huge plus is that we were able to bring our dogs. They loved the house, too! We also used the canoe to check out the lake, which was fun. Would recommend this rental!
Beautiful views, gorgeous house, perfect getaway
Tucked away with a beautiful view, this house had everything we needed. We cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal in the house, the wifi worked perfectly and we were able to stream all the football games on Thanksgiving. We drove into Johnson City for the day and had a great time. Tons of fun shops, restaurants, and breweries. We had great weather so we were able to do a little fishing, though didn't catch anything (might be a bad time of year for fishing). We hope to come back in the spring/summer!
Doesn't get much better than this.
Everything about it was great. The cabin, the view, the decks, the location, the set up...just great. We had everything we needed. There were kayaks and a canoe to use on the lake, which was absolutely beautiful. The owners are very easy to deal with. WELL worth the money!
