Beautiful LAKEFRONT Chalet on 2.8 acres on Watauga Lake. Gorgeous views of the lake and mountains from every part of the house. Step out onto the porch with morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail to relax with breathtaking views. Walk down the steps in total privacy 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!
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
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!
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!
The lakehouse is absolutely amazing. You get the perfect amount of privacy, you're right on a beautiful secluded lake, and the house itself is beautiful and just modern enough. We spent four days there and it was perfect. We were able to swim, hike, kayak, cook dinner, watch Netflix, and more. Lake hideaway chalet has multiple options for every mood. I can't wait to revisit again!
This place was perfect for a quiet getaway. Its away from any disturbances, has its own little private boat dock with stairs leading to the cabin, in a nicely secluded inlet into Watauga lake. The house is all wood and stone with modern amenities making it a great stay for a getaway from the rat-race. Eating out in this area doesnt have the best of selections, a couple of mom and pop places which specialize in traditional American food, from a can. So at least be prepared to bring supplies to cook or drive out a while to find a good place eat. But this is also a close enough range to take a day trip to nearby Boone, Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, and a number of other ski towns.
We had an awesome quick stay at the chalet. This location is perfect for hiking, enjoying Boone, fishing, and getting away from it all. The lake is literally out your back door. The house has all the amenities you would want. I would definitely recommend this place.
see the sun set the lake all a-sparkle,
watch the wind gently swaying the pines...
see the stars clearly dancing at midnight
with the moon amidst blackberry skies...
karen and kim-- untold hours i revelled in this stuff
and mere words cannot thank you enough...
for your cozy retreat from the cold,
and for the chance for a cracking warm fire
next to which i could watch it unfold. ldc, blk mtn, nc
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the chalet. The lake amenities, kayaks, barbecue grill, and amazing view made for a private and cozy stay. We cannot wait to get back!
Spectacular in the winter, can't imagine what it would be like in the summer. It's a must do return. Next time with kayaks and swim toys, although the cabin is well equipped with the likes. So much to do it's hard to decide whether to go off for an adventure or stay right at the cabin. Views and sunsets are gorgeous.
