Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 12 Sleeps;Luxurious;Well Maintained & Clean

Truly Lakefront Luxurious Log Cabin

We built our dream vacation home, Waters Edge, in 2007 after months of carefully designing the floor plan so that it would be perfect in every way. Waters Edge is a luxuriously furnished log cabin with 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, and an Outdoor Shower for the warm months, that sleeps 12 and has all the amenities. It is truly lakefront, being directly on Watauga Lake. It has its own shoreline with its own private dock. The home is spacious with 3,500 square feet and three stories. You enter on the Main Level which has the Living Room, Dining Area, Kitchen, and Master Suite. Above that is the Loft Sitting Area and a separate Loft Bedroom. On the Lower Level is the Family Room with a Pool Table and Game Table, plus a Wet Bar, 2 more Bedrooms, the Laundry, and Outdoor Shower. There are 4 spacious decks and a balcony, all with fantastic views of the mountains and lake. Two of the decks have a roof and one has a deck floor above it. An outdoor sound system enhances your deck time!

Furnished for Your Enjoyment

Waters Edge has been furnished lavishly with all the creature comforts. The Gourmet Kitchen has everything you will need to prepare the master banquet for your guests or simply mix drinks and cook out on the adjacent Main Deck. Home theater, a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, CD/DVD players, LCD TV, outside speakers, cable TV, and unlimited long distance telephone in the continental US fulfill your electronic needs. The natural stone gas log fireplace, Jacuzzi jetted tub in the Master Bath, and fire ring by the dock will relax and mesmerize you.

Why Watauga Lake?

We are environmental professionals from Florida who love the mountains and the lakes. We selected WataugaLake because it is one of the only lakes in the country at an elevation of 2,000 feet which means the weather tends to be cooler in the summer. It is truly one of the most beautiful and cleanest lakes in the U.S. With a shoreline 105 miles long, only 47 miles are developed, while the rest are part of the beautiful Cherokee National Forest. Thus, there are fewer houses on the lake and it does not have the boat traffic congestion that other more developed lakes have. Being environmentalists, that sits well with us and we are sure it will with you!

Location, Location, Location!

Waters Edge is just minutes from Butler, TN and conveniently located for leisure activities in all directions. It is approximately 1.5 hours from Asheville, NC, 40 minutes from both Boone, NC and Johnson City, TN, an hour from Bristol NASCAR Motor Speedto way, and less than an hour to Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain. There are plenty of recreational and leisure activities to select right at Waters Edge and within minutes of it. The selection includes all water activities, hiking, biking, snow skiing and ice skating, horseback riding, scuba diving, parks, sightseeing, and just plain relaxation. Your choices are endless!

All the Seasons

Yes, summer is our peak season and most popular time of the year. However, more and more guests are discovering our 3 other great seasons. The autumn reds, yellows, and oranges with cooler weather just have a way of saying 'Relax! You're on vacation. Slow down and enjoy it!'

As the cool autumn weather turns colder, winter sets in and wow, that fireplace warms you to the bone. Just out the window wall are the mountains and lake in all their snow-covered glory. Within 50 minutes are 5 slopes to ski, snowboard, or tube on. At the end of the day, the drive back relaxes you and when you arrive at Waters Edge, it's time to enjoy your own ski lodge. Good food and drink, the Jacuzzi jetted tub to relax those muscles, a fire and you're in heaven!

Come spring time, the budding trees and songbirds stir your spirit. The weather warms up typically during the day, but cools off very nicely at night. Though you may not want to swim yet, the complimentary canoe and kayak carry you quietly through your own private tour of Watauga Lake. It is great to go sightseeing and take in some of the festivals and celebrations in the area within a 45 minute drive.

Be Our Guest!

Whatever your season, you will find you can truly enjoy it at Waters Edge. Check out the amenities, activities, and attractions below. Feel free to e-mail or call me at anytime. I am Scott Russell, the Owner, and I and my wife, Michele, would be proud to have you as guests in our lake home!

Successful Reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to say that my family and friends were all very impressed with your beautiful home when I hosted one of our bar-b-ques in for our reunion. It was spacious and open and so very relaxing for our vacation/reunion. There was plenty of space for family if they needed to stay the night and the kitchen was a dream to cook in as well as a wonderful gathering place during our stay!! I would definitely recommend it for family gatherings to a romantic get away!! I hope we have it in TN again because if close...we may just have to stay here again!! Thanks for a great, memorable reunion that my family will be talking about for a long time!!!

Amazing house and view, gorgeous lake!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a week in August. The house layout was ideal, with plenty of room for 12 guests. We never felt crowded and there was lots of space for everyone to hang out together or enjoy some quiet time. The interior of the house was really beautiful and clean, as was the lake. If you're looking for a peaceful escape and a beautiful mountain home, you should consider this property!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful, large and looks brand new. I am picky about things being clean and I will tell you it was spotless! It is right on the water so when we were not using the kayak, canoe, or swimming we could sit on on of the three decks and look out over the lake and enjoy the peacefulness. We cooked every night and also used the gas grill. The kitchen had everything you need including lots of dishes, pots, pans, baking pans, utensils, spices etc....It was a great place for family time. The kids and adults loved the pool table. I can't say enough good things about this house or the owner. Scott was very professional and easy to work with. We rented a pontoon boat from Fish Springs Marina for the day and had a great time. We also rode bikes on the Virginia Creeper Trail one day which is only about 40 minutes away. There is plenty to do here or do nothing at all because it is so peaceful and beautiful. One night we went outside to watch two beavers carrying wood from the fire pit to the water and back and forth and while standing there watching a deer ran right past us! Wildlife at its best. Don't hesitate to stay here, you will not want to leave!

A Magical Christmas

  • 5 of 5
Our family arrived the Eve of December 20th, it snowed that night. We woke up to a beautiful blanket of white snow the next day (December 21, 2012); it wasn't the end of the world, it was the beginning of the most wonderful vacation we have ever experienced. It was 9 of us (My husband and our adult children with their significant others). We were all extremely comfortable at the Lake House. It felt like a second home, a second "dream home".

We really connected as a family, enjoying all the amenities of this beautiful cabin. We roasted marshmallows, played board games, sat by the fire and told stories and ventured out on a canoe ride down the beautiful and peaceful Watauga Lake.
It was a "Memorable and Magical" Christmas!

Location

From the Owner

The elevation, where the temperatures are cooler after spending our lives in the heat of Florida, was of prime importance in locating this site. The cleanliness and beauty of the lake, with little congestion and the mountains lured us to this property, where we decided to build.

Amenities

From the Owner

Private home with private dock and luxurious furnishings. Peaceful, yet not too far away from shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants. Enjoy the best of both worlds - the mountains and the lake! It's at an elevation of 2,000 feet, so it is cooler than the lakes at lower elevations. You will, especially like that! It's right off the road which is not steep or mountainous - no white knuckle driving, wondering if you will make it!
