We love to hang out on the water and in the woods. Much, much more private than lake front homes. If that description fits then you've found the right place. Being on the River provides a great swimming and fishing area, easy for youngsters, family’s and friends to explore. Guests also have great Watauga Lake access, 5minute drive. Local marina down the street offers boat rentals. Our family enjoys Nature and the outdoors at our finger tips. You family will, too.

Overall the cabin is in great condition, the location is good for someone that is looking for that complete retreat from civilization although, to be honest the closest marinas are completely destroyed, so not very much to do around, we went to elizabethtown to check the place and again not very happy, also going back to conditions in the cabin, the place was completely infested in bugs, specifically ladybugs, they were falling from the ceiling, not very happy with the weather because we were looking forward to had snow falling and had the experience with the kid, but overall yeah good trip, good place.
Privacy was one reason why we purchased the place. It does allow you to 'get away' from it all. Theres a lot of activities here at the property to take advantage of, Fish the river, hike over 40 acres, build a bon fire are main reason why guests choose to stay here. Down the road there are several marinas, all are open and happy to rent boats. Sorry this guest was bothered by the construction at one marina. Our welcome package directs guests to Boone NC, 30 min drive. Perfect for grocery shopping, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Tanger outlet, unique specialty shops, restaurants and live entertainment. The closest gas station/beer run with limited groceries is less than a five minute drive from the cabin and 2 local restaurants Shirleys and The Captains table are both a ten minute drive. Civilization is around every corner, refer to the welcome package so when you are ready to explore you go in the right directions. The lady bugs come and go with the weather and will soon be gone. It flurried almost every morning but didn't stick. Winter months guests can always see snow at any of the nearby ski slopes so keep that in mind if seeing snow is at the top of your list. We encourage guests to utilize the welcome package and follow its lead that way you can take full advantage of the area and all it has to offer.
Great property for hiking
Beautiful cabin in nice serene setting with plenty of space to explore. A bit off the beaten path and somewhat isolated, but along with that comes privacy and room to roam. The cleanliness could be improved as we questioned what the cleaning service fee actually covered since we had to vacuum up dust and beetles that inundated the cabin.
We went to this property for the week of Christmas. It was everything it was described. We left the property twice but honestly could've just stayed and have been just as happy. Plenty of stuff to do .My husband spent most of his time fly fishing in the river below , while we went hiking almost every day. My grandmother would just sit on the back porch and listen to the river , drink coffee and read her books.The house was fully stocked and we needed for nothing. I contacted the housekeeper Sheila and told her we would be there for Christmas with small children . Sheila went above and beyond and has a tree up and the home decorated. This is definitely one of the best rental experiences I've had .
This guest is right! Fish over 3,000 feet of river frontage, hike over 40 acres or just sit and listen to the river run ... this place is for enjoyment only.
Thanksgiving stay in Ike River Cabin
The property and location was excellent. A great experience all the way around.
3 nights @ Elk River
Beautiful cabin, great views, private setting, loved th indoor fireplaces. Steam shower in downstairs master suite was awesome! Cleaning crew needs to do a better job with the floors, area rugs, windows, and dusting. The firepit was great. Wish this property would install a hot tub on the lower deck (fuse panel is already there from previous hot tub). The furniture is nice, but the wood floors are pretty rough. The kitchen is nicely equipped with everything you need. Great cabin location if you don't want to see anyone, or get any phone calls.
Yes, this is a very private place with beautiful views and easy road access to western NC, Eastern Tn and South-western Va. Guests have a landline phone with unlimited long distance and can forward calls if they don't want to miss any. WiFi is also provided so everyone can stay in touch. The property is well equipped for entertaining, grill, fire-pit, jacuzzi bath tub and yes, a wonderful steam shower. It's the perfect vacation spot. True, there are some scratches here and there, but know our staff tries their best. If something isn't right give them a call to correct anything they may have missed. We encourage guests to take this time to spend with their friends and family and enjoy.
Home away from home plus
This was a great week to relax and enjoy the cool weather and mountain views. We like to cook and eat in and this cabin was perfect. Well stocked with pots and pans and an outdoor grill. The jacuzzi tub was nice and i especially liked the steam shower. There were instructions on where to go, when to go and the operations of the cabin in detail. Couldn't have been easier or better.
