My daughter and I made a quick overnight trip to Johnson City and stayed here. The setting on The Watauga River is beautiful. The cabin was comfortable and well equipped. The common area (BBQ Shack) is equipped with anything you need for preparing your own meals or just sitting stream side with your favorite beverage. The convenience to town surprised...

I didn't land the biggest rainbow in the Watauga but I sure did land my first. Now I'm the one that's hooked on fly fishing. I grew up in East TN and did not realize we had such a treasure in our backyard. The riverside property with the 100' cliffs is stunning. Fish as early or as late as you...

Our family reunion was held on this property and we rented all the cabins but 1, but I got to see that cabin anyway. This is an awesome spot for large families or groups of friends as there are 5 cabins that can be rented. My husband and I stayed in Cedar Lodge which was beautifully appointed. The lodge is...

My family of 3 had an outstanding relaxing father's day weekend. The whole family loved the table down by the river, my wife sat there and read while my daughter and I fished, the glider rocker under the shelter was my favorite morning spot with a cup of coffee. We enjoyed the table on the porch for meals. The Hemlock...

Host was easy to work with. Would definitely return. Enjoyed the fire pit. Only negative was that the well stocked kitchen was dirty. We had to wash every...

This is such a relaxing, riverside lodge. Small and intimate, set in the woods with rustic cabins, this is a great place to get away from it all. Have a fire at night or cook outside on the gas grill (completely furnished outdoor kitchen for all to use). Not too far from Johnson City, there are a few great restaurants...

I stayed here as a compromise between no vacation and a trip out to MT or ID for fishing. The cabin I stayed in was clean and had many of the necessities that were helpful for cooking at the cabin. The gazebo type shelter had a gas grill and was lighted with a timer so I could cook at night...
