  • Best getaway!

    "Our fourth stay at this quaint little cabin. Convenient to both Boone and Banner Elk. We love to get away and recharge and rejuvenate at the Kingfish. Nothing is forgotten. Firewood is available, wifi, and all the accoutrements necessary for a week in the mountains. Love, love, love this cabin."

  • We loved the place!!!

    "Excellent property adjacent to one of the most beautiful, majestic lakes in the entire country. Owner was very accomdating and provided precision directions to this remote property, and detailed description of the house proper and nearby amenities. The property is well cared for and clean. There was no trouble using the development marina...this was a huge plus for our group as we docked boat there for the entire stay. Hints: arrive during daylight hours. Property is blissfully remote and you will need to follow owner provided instructions. You will want to enjoy the scenery anyway. Last 100 yards of the driveway is steep...be prepared."

  • Unparalleled Lake Luxury!

    "What royalty our family felt like for the weekend! We truly appreciate the thought that the owners put into every single detail on the property. It was a memorable and magnificent stay. Lore was prompt with her response when we first arrived and had difficulty connecting to the WiFi (which we were then able to connect to immediately). We were in need of NOTHING. On our way in, we passed the drive in movie theater in Elizabethton. I have never been, and my mom thought it would be fun to venture out one evening for a movie. Once we arrived at Whipkins Cove, we did not want to leave for anything (not even when we had to go back home after checkout)! We spent the weekend drooling over the beauty of God's creation and all the work that the owners put into making this a vacation dream home. We will certainly be returning. Everything about the house was gorgeous. I was particularly drawn to the upstairs bathroom with the walk in shower and amazing bathtub. There were even bath salts present for my relaxation. They truly thought of everything! I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We laughed as people floated by the house on boats/ kayaks and just pointed and stared in amazement at the home. It is massive and breathtaking from the water! It was a real pleasure working with Lore. She is flexible and understanding. I am a huge cook and would have considered myself in heaven if I never left the kitchen all weekend! From the outdoor furniture to the matches and pens in the drawer and EVERYTHING in between, we thank you for such an incredible experience on Watauga Lake. There are even nicely printed labels located in various places around the home with helpful hints such as one in the shower that says to turn the knob a certain way if the shower head won't stop dripping. Helpful hints were handy and plentiful! This is one weekend that I will never forget. It is tranquil, serene, and a getaway to be adored by all. I hope to be speaking with Lore again soon as we plan for a longer family vacation next year. Everything was top notch and wonderful, from the time I found this home on VRBO to writing this very review! Thank you so much, Whipkins Cove!"

  • The Best!!!

    "My SO and I were trying to escape the awful summer heat in the Sandhills. We found the perfect place for 3 weeks. I will try to list briefly all the pluses I gave to this Grandfather Mt. condo. in Echota. 1. Ground level---no lugging up and down stairs. 2.This condo was like being in our own home. Perfect decor for this mountain retreat. Great mattress (we have encountered some bummers.) Towels and linens were VG .All the needed condiments and more were provided and made our shopping easier. Two TVs. And having 2 bathrooms was really a luxury. Immaculate !!! 3. Our very favorite part of this condo was the deck. Comfortable and great place to have morning coffee or evening wine.Lovely peaceful view. Very little noise pollution. 4.2 pools and a fitness room. I used the indoor pool frequently---great pool. The outdoor pool is located in an absolutely grand spot. The view is awesome. The Echota clubhouse is also beautiful. 5. My SO not only hiked one of the Grandfather Mt. trails, he had the good fortune to join a bird watching group at the Community Park in Valle Crueses. 6. Dining in Banner Elk and Blowing Rock was good. There are many wineries in the area. Heard good things about them. If we visit this area again, we will go in July. The 2 local colleges have many offerings in concerts, theatre, etc. but shut down in August. Our landlord, Hutch, was very helpful when we needed him. I have already recommended this lovely vacation spot to our friends."
