About Patricia or George Heinemann
We are an older couple who fell in love with the location of Catfish Cottage. We kept the name that was on the cottage, but almost everything else has been updated (totally inside).
Patricia or George Heinemann purchased this Cottage in 2015

What makes this Cottage unique
It is at the intersection of the Watauga River which flows from Boone, NC and the lake. In the winter, out front of the cottage is a natural spring which when the lake is iced over, there is a circle of unfrozen water where the spring is. Kayaking and/or canoeing up the river is an adventure or just going for an evening canoe ride out in the lake. Pontoon, kayak and jet ski rentals are available from either Fish Spring Marina or Lake Shore Marina in Butler, TN

Nice clean cottage
Everything was as described. Owners had great communication and were helpful with some suggestions of places to go. Clean cottage with everything we needed in it. View of the lake was beautiful. Driveway was a little tricky backing down the first time but got used to it. Good spot for our trip as it was about 35 minutes from Beech Mountian.
Leave the computer world away
We were there were Christmas. It was beautiful. Could not have asked for a better day. The lake was gorgeous day and night. Our hosts thought of everything.
