  • Watauga Lake is Paradise


    Joey's property had everything that we needed, and we were sad to leave. We're already planning our next trip back! The Hot Tub, Pool Table, and 2-story Dock were the best amenities, but the home itself was also a star and had everything we needed.

  • Great Place to Stay!


    Great location in a peaceful neighborhood. The house was very clean and well-stocked with towels, linens, and other basics. We had plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 small dog, and the internet service was great. The covered outdoor area with a kitchen was a plus. There are about 59 steps going down to the dock, but my elderly parents in their early 80's navigated just fine. The area is peaceful for early morning dog walks or just sitting/fishing on the dock. We put our boat in at Little Milligan Boat Ramp which is a relatively short distance from the rental home. The dock at the rental home has an easy-access boat slip. The home has several outside decks where you can sit and relax, even while it's raining. Or you can relax in the hot tub! We only needed limited interaction with the host prior to our visit and he responded immediately with answers to our questions. We will definitely look at this house again for next year's visit to Watauga Lake!

  • Amazing get Away!


    We had a great ladies weekend here. We were looking for somewhere in between D.C. and Atlanta, and are so glad we found this beautiful area and wonderful home. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We spent most of our time sitting in the hot tub or on the dock taking in the views. We can’t wait to come back in the summer to take advantage of the beautiful lake.
