Executive's Home right on the edge of Watauga Lake, "the 3rd cleanest lake in the US"
Vacation Home hosted by Vikki
8 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms

Overview

This spacious 3 bedroom 3 bath home with alcove for an additional guest was built to be the owner's retirement home. In the meantime, the location in northeast Tennessee is perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy a mountain vacation on a lake.

Bring your own boat or rent one from a nearby marina and keep it at the dock just at the end of the lawn which runs right into the water. A hammock and picnic area by the lake mean summer days will slip by as you rest and relax.

Fishing off the dock or explore the coves of Watauga Lake where you can catch trout, catfish, walleye and carp. Swim right off the dock or enjoy the sensation of swimming in the middle of the lake when you jump off your boat anywhere in the lake.

HIking to waterfalls and sections of the Appalachian Trail are close by. A walking trail, disc golf trail, and kids playground at Ralph Stout Park in Mountain City make for a fun family day.

Bring your ATV and ride the challenging trails on Doe Mountain just up the road. Hike up to the firetower and get an amazing view of 3 states.

Throughout the year many events and festivals are held throughout the year in Johnson County. Check out the website: www.houseonwataugalake.com and also Johnson County Welcome Center on Facebook to keep up with all the activities happening while you are visiting.

Owner

I built the house as a retirement home, but at the moment I am living nearby in my mountain top lodge (which is also a rental). One day I'll retire and move to the lake.
I moved to this area about 21 years ago and fell in love with the Appalachian way of life. It's a great way to slow down and smell the roses.
I've traveled widely and lived in many places but Johnson County, TN is THE BEST. So much to do, so many wonderful friends and surrounded by Mother Nature's beauty.
Speaks: English
Accepts:
Houfy lets you contact and book direct with owners & managers. The owner/manager has provided the following links to give you more information.
