If you're looking for the perfect riverfront retreat, you'll certainly love this cabin! 'Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.'  - Norman MacLean  The Watauga River begins its 60 mile journey on the northern slopes of Grandfather Mountain and flows generally north and west into Watauga Lake on the North Carolina/ Tennessee border. The word 'Watauga' is derived from the Cherokee word 'Watagi' meaning 'beautiful waters' or 'whispering waters.' This dynamic riparian zone is actually a migration corridor for many varieties of fish, birds and animals and plays a significant role in preserving biodiversity. During good weather you can explore the river or try your luck at catching a variety of trout such as brook, brown or rainbow. This section of the Watauga River is now privately stocked and is exceptional for fly fishing! ALL fishing is single artificial lure, catch & release only (no live or scented baits or corn please). Fly fishing guide services are available upon request. When it rains, the river rises and the kayakers come out to shoot the rapids. A River Runs Through It is situated on 2.75 acres with the Watauga River running through the center of the property. The cabin was built of hand-hewn hemlock from Washington State and pine paneling from Watauga County. Access to the property is a tree-lined gravel road that was once a portion of the railroad bed of the Western North Carolina- East Tennessee Railroad. A circular driveway winds around Rhododendron and welcomes you to A River Runs Through It. On the covered entrance deck you will find plenty of rocking chairs and a limited stack of firewood. This cabin provides a cozy feeling with hand-hewn hemlock logs and beams, leather furniture, oak floors, area rugs and a stone fireplace with firewood provided. Original artwork and pottery along with track lighting with dimmers accent the main level. A surround sound TV/DVD/CD system with Charter On Demand premium channel movies and high speed wireless internet provide entertainment. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. One bedroom with a king size bed, flat screen TV and a full bath with a granite top double sink vanity and Jacuzzi tub complete this floor inside. Upstairs you will find a large bedroom furnished with antiques, quilts and a flat screen TV, along with another full bath, and the air hockey game room with a Queen sized air mattress tucked in the closet. Step from the kitchen onto the new deck and use the grill, table and chairs to dine on the river; or enjoy the six-person Hot Springs spa with moto-massage and a fountain. Stairs lead from the deck to the river. A River Runs Through It is conveniently located near a main artery that connects the ski slopes of Avery County with the exceptional antique shops of Foscoe with the rich history of Valle Crucis with the great dining and entertainment of Boone and Blowing Rock. Several whitewater and fishing guide services are also located nearby. If you're looking for the perfect riverfront retreat, you'll certainly love this cabin!
