This "cabin" was a huge disappointment. The only good thing about it , was it was clean. I got most of my money back after i left a full day early due to poor conditions. A broken canoe, hole in the wall covered by a placemat, now a mirror, and a poorly kept hot tub was too much to deal...

This is right on the water, huge catfish and carp right off the deck. Watauga Lake is beautiful and I will definitely be back.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Good to hear you enjoying the fishing in one of America's cleanest lakes. Know you are welcome back anytime. Thanks again for taking such good care of the place. We really appreciated.

An ant problem was beginning - they were under the windows, on the counters, floors and in the sink. Fully furnished kitchen? Not so much :( We found...

Management response:

Yes, the scenery from this property is absolutely beautiful. Mountains and water views in every direction. The area is mostly Cherokee National Forest so your views are of woods and wilderness. Once the weather warms up a bit ants start to come out. Know we have our place sprayed monthly with regular pest control & guests can find 'hot shot'...
