  • Another great stay at Hidden Cove!

    "We just left this property last week. Our stay in Jan was great. We hit the slopes every day. Sugar and Beech were in full swing with lots of snow. The cabin we loved. This place is very clean, neat and everything needed is provided. Our family really enjoyed the beds. They are extremely comfortable with very nice linens and comfortable pillows. All bedrooms have glass sliding doors that open up onto decks making it so convenient to just step out and get a breath of fresh air. You can tell the views of the lake and mountains were taken right off the deck of this house you can even focus in and see the exact same railing on the deck as the online pictures. Just note that each season has its look. Winter will look more bear with less water and foliage. Summer months are going to be a totally different look. We have stayed her twice now. Our last stay was in July and the lake was so full of water that it was splashing on the road. Even though water levels fluctuate with the seasons its still pretty much the same gorgeous view. The housekeeper does live just below the hill and thank good ness for that. I called twice for help. First I locked myself out, she arrived within minutes to get me back in. She even stopped by to help me when my youngest got sick. She gets a big A+ for that assistance and so thankful for her being close enough to help quickly. We found the other homes & yards in the area to be neat & clean. Our expectations of the property have been met both stays. We love it and plan to return soon."

  • 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!"

  • Great House in a Beautiful Location!

    "The views were amazing! We hit the tail end of the fall colors -- but it was still beautiful. The house was perfect! Very clean and the view from the living room picture window was awesome. Also liked the covered porch..so much so that I sat outside in the early morning with coffee in hand watching the sun come up while wrapped in a blanket to ward off the early November chill. Would recommend visiting Boone, NC, also drove up to Abingdon, VA and visited the Artisan Store there. A restaurant recommendation is the La Cucina Italian Kitchen in Mountain City, TN. They only have 24 seats so reservations are recommended. When we were there they were only open Wednesday - Sunday. The food was truly amazing. My husband who is gluten free said it's the best gluten free Italian food he's ever eaten!. Another recommendation is to visit the Watauga Winery nearby on Watauga Lake. Ohio Traveler -"

  • Great stay

    "Truly a great cabin to stay at and one that I would recommend to anyone. It's furnished and stocked just like somebody lived there themselves 24/7 with no details being left out. Beautiful and warm/comfortable on the inside and great views on the outside. My family and I had a great time and plan on making a return trip next year. It was spacious and up to date while retaining that authentic mountain feel that everyone is looking for. The owners were also friendly and easy to communicate with. A+ stay"
