    Beautiful Home With Stunning Views

    This property absolutely exceeded our expectations. Everything was sparkly clean and our hosts were exceptional, keeping in contact with us throughout our entire stay. The porch off the master bedroom was a perfect spot for morning coffee and watching the sunrise over the hills, as were the swings out front which were in constant use. We were sad to leave the views and would hands down stay here again.

    The Airbnb was located high up on a hill, with a winding narrow path with sharp turns, that was difficult to drive on, particularly at night. The home was also not as clean as we would have expected it to be, especially for the price. Check-in was also difficult because lockbox code provided in Airbnb description is wrong. However, the home is large with a great view of the Watauga highlands.

    The views (sunrise especially) are great! The house is perfect for 6, but we had 10 stay with no issues. Deer, turkeys and lots of birds seen every day on property. Updated kitchen and baths are very nice. Fire pit and patio was amazing in the evenings. A must place to visit to escape!

    This was beyond our expectations. Spacious house with amazing views, wildlife and relaxation.
    Coffee in the morning with mountains views, wine at night with Mountain View’s.... doesn’t get much better than that.
    So nice to disconnect and enjoy family and friends.

    A uniquely beautiful setting at the top of a small mountain The view is unparalleled anywhere in the Smokies (except maybe Biltmore). We could not get enough of hanging out at the fire pit and soaking in the panorama. The house was great as well and the hosts were so very gracious. We will definitely be back for more.

    Unparalleled views & home

    Reviewed by: Annaliese R. on

    As we drove up the winding driveway, our excitement increased with every turn. We reached the top of the driveway to be greeted with a beautiful home and a gorgeous mountain view. Initially, we didn't even have interest in the home itself, but spent a good 15 minutes walking around the home to take in the fresh air (after an 11 hour car ride!) and views of the mountains surrounding us. As I said in the title: unparalleled. We eventually unpacked the car and made our way into the home - and again were blown away. The pictures online do not do it justice. A gorgeous kitchen, beautiful bedrooms, and plenty of places to unwind with a view of the mountains. I'd have to say our favorite place to relax was on the couch on the outdoor, covered porch. With a glass (or 2!) of wine, looking out onto the cities from the top of this mountain top, life was good! We were able to find a handful of places to hike that were no further than an hour from the property, with recommendations by Harold. Speaking of Harold, you could not ask for a better host!! Made us feel so welcome and gave local suggestions for both food and attractions, most of which we did and had a great time! The home is decorated with gorgeous canvases featuring pictures he took! Be sure to grab one of his calendars before you leave!
    If you're thinking about booking this property - do it! It books up fast, and for good reason. There is not one regret you will have staying here!

    SOOO Beautiful! Great place!

    BREATHTAKING PANORAMIC MOUNTAIN VIEWS

    Comment:

    Breathtaking panoramic views from this 5 star rental. We had such an amazing experience from booking, arriving and checking in, throughout our stay, and checking out at this mountain paradise. I highly recommend this slice of heaven for your next mountain vacation. We just missed the leaves turning, as we were about 10 days too early. The house is very clean, well decorated, well furnished, well updated, and has a functional floor plan for a family or multiple guests. We had our two kids ages 10 and 8 with us... and they had a blast. No one wanted to leave when our stay was over! After checking in I only left once to run to Wal-Mart--- the views were just too hard to leave... we didn't need to leave to go looking for scenery because everything we had hoped for was right there. The property manager Harold was so nice and helpful... and very knowledgeable about the property and surrounding areas. We hope to book this same listing next year and attempt to catch those leaves changing once again.

    This was an impressive property. First, Harold the manager was very hospitable & knowledgeable about the property. He provided excellent customer service. Second, the view was incredibly outstanding!!! I can't say enough about this. The views are superior! Third, the house was immaculately designed and spared no expense at the beautiful décor. The pictures are not only accurate, but it surpasses them when you arrive. Fourth, it was incredibly clean. Even the bathroom towels smelled fresh and clean. The yard was kept. The kitchen was stocked with can openers, pans and dishes. But, as beautiful as the house and décor is, we spent all our time on the patio. The views truly are magnificent and breath-taking. We highly recommend and we will be booking again for sure!! This was truly a perfect place!

    A stately property with a breathtaking view

    Reviewed by: Adam on

    Comment:

    My wife and I were looking for a house in the TriCities area to stay while she accompanied me on a work trip. When the search results first returned the Watauga Highlands it seemed to meet our needs... a private house a few miles from downtown Johnson City with full amenities. The pictures were stunning, but surely they had just hired a talented photographer. It described a great view, but I had seen many good views in that area before and assumed it was hyperbole.

    However, as my wife and I approached the steep limestone drive and looked ahead up the path, we thought we had made a wrong turn. The property we entered felt grandiose and the beauty we saw was breathtaking. We ascended the steep and lengthy drive and arrived the veranda. The only thing initially noticeable was the view. No pictures or description of the mountainous span do it justice.

    Once we realized we were still on planet earth we were greeted by Harold, the host. Harold made us feel we had always belonged, and he will make you feel the same. He exudes a humble confidence that tells you he is blessed, and now you are too, to simply experience this stately land.

    And Harold is a thoughtful, gracious host. He provided us all the information we needed and showed us around. The house is worthy of Architectural Digest. It is a fully featured home with a contemporary style reminiscent of video clips I have seen of a first family enjoying a relaxing moment at Camp David.

    The kitchen is modern and contains everything a group needs. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are luxury hotel clean. Three bedrooms and a pull out couch was overstock for my wife and me. A large family or two, could stay here comfortably.

    I have been reluctant to provide a review even marginally worthy of the Watauga Highlands, simply because I am selfish. But my guilt could no longer allow me to remain hushed. If you are fortunate enough to visit this property, you will not be disappointed.

    FANTASTIC!!!!
