About Morgan Wright

I grew up in southern Minnesota and lived most of my life in central Wisconsin. I spent 17 years as a programmer for a large insurance company, and then 20 years teaching computer classes at a technical college. My wife JoAnn grew up in central Wisconsin, and also worked with insurance and office management. We retired in 2005, and moved here. My primary activity has been home building and repair. My primary hobby is using my kayak on Watauga Lake. We are both active with music things, and I build a few dulcimers to sell.

Morgan Wright purchased this house in 2016

Why Morgan Wright chose Butler

We moved to this area because of the beautiful lake and mountains. We enjoy people in the area. It has been a great place for retirement.

What makes this house unique

We built this house in 2006 for JoAnn's sister and her husband. They have both passed away, so we are making it a rental.

I have recently repainted the house and fixed any minor problems. There is a nice view of the lake from the living room. An open floor plan provides a nice gathering place for a family. Shaded decks are very nice even on a hot day.

Nina's Nook - Near Watauga Lake In TN
average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews

Perfect home in the mountains, great view of the lake, clean, Homeowners are very hospitable.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Nina's Nook with a few friends before a week long ski trip. The location of the house is beautiful, with a nice view of Watauga Lake from the living room windows. The pictures do not do the home its entire justice, it is very large and can easily sleep 7. The rooms were nice, neat, and very clean, and the homeowners made sure that we were comfortable and happy in our rental. It was great to sit on the couch on New Years Eve and have the fireplace in the living room on as well as watching the snow fall down on the lake out of the windows. Overall a fantastic experience for any traveler, and I hope to stay at Nina's Nook again in the future!
