  • Vacation in a private cove


    Great location. Quiet and comfy. Kayak paddles were broken however, Scott had new ones there the next day. Could do a better job cleaning (dog slobber on the sliding door and dead bugs in the window sill, dirty fridge ) but overall a a great stay. A little disappointed that the hot tub wasn’t working but weather was hot our whole stay. The darts and other games were a hit. I would come back again.

  • Great location!


    Scott's lakeside property is perfect--just a short walk to water access. The cabin is in a small cove so it was like playing in a giant swimming pool. I contacted Scott to make sure the kayaks were available since I didn't see any mention of them in reviews and he assured me that the kayaks were onsite since he was onsite too. I should have asked about paddles because there was only one regulation kayak paddle for the three kayaks. The oar just didn't work. My husband and I slept in the kids' room and the bed was a double--not a queen. Edit your website if things change. (I can say that because we are VRBO property owners)

  • Honeymoon at the lake


    We had a peaceful time at the lake! You can sit on the porch and listen to the birds, sit at the tiki bar and enjoy the views of the mountains while fishing off the dock, catch fireflies at night, enjoy an outdoor fire, Play games with the family inside or just relax and watch a movie. We love that there were books for children that were there and a lot of board games. The dartboard was fun. The hot tub would have been amazing however it stopped working during our stay. There is a new one on order though. Scott was quick to respond and try and fix the situation.We rented a boat and made many visits to Captain Jack’s. Keep in mind if you want produce or meat I would suggest stopping before you get into town. I was hard-pressed to find lettuce or any fresh veggies in town. We did end up going to the trading Post and I pretty much bought out their salad bar! All of the locals we’re kind. It was what you would expect in a small Tennessee town. We loved our stay and had a wonderful time. Glad to make such great memories.

  • Lake house


    Washer is full of mold and cob webs all over the furniture near legs. We had a very hard time getting the door to lock . Latch is broken on sliding door. Overall we enjoyed our stay but definitely needs improvements.

    Fabulous location with all the amenities! We loved the Tiki bar...played board games/ate local pizza and had lots of fun with the lights and sound system! Teens loved the hot tub! Took a short ride to enjoy the new Southern Craft location! The cabin was super clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing time! We would definitely come back!! Lots of happy childhood memories on Watauga Lake...glad I could make some for my own kids during this stay! Highly recommend!
