Description

This spectacular 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom home sits on 6 secluded, wooded acres on the Watauga River, affording complete privacy and incredible river views from almost every room in the house!

On the main level are the dining area and main living space with a large flat screen TV, stereo and a stone, gas-log fireplace. Adjacent to the living area you'll find a fully-equipped kitchen and breakfast nook.

The spacious master suite on the main floor features a king bed, etched glass windows overlooking the river, and a beautiful private bathroom featuring a large tub as well as a separate shower with a rainhead. Just off the bedroom is a sunroom and access to the covered parking bay.

Climb the wide spiral stairs to the upper level, which contains the loft area with a desk housing the computer workstation with high speed internet and printer, two full-sized futons, and a full bath with a shower. Adjacent to the loft is another beautiful king suite with a private full bathroom with bidet. COMING MID MAY 2023: A new third bedroom with twin over twin trundle beds connected to the loft with a barn door!

Beside the upstairs king suite is the glass-enclosed game room/sitting room, featuring a foosball table, Xbox360, TV, and comfortable chairs, perfect for entertaining the time away on a rainy day. From the game room you can walk out onto a small upper deck with a cafe table and chairs.

On the lower level deck, you'll find a table with four chairs for al fresco dining, as well as the large stone outdoor firepit on the deck, and the wonderful hot tub. Listen to the river rush by as you enjoy an evening by the fire or soaking in the hot tub. Newly built in 2013 is a flight of 90 stairs leading down to the river, where you can enjoy the sights, sounds, and feel of the beautiful Watauga River up close.

A River Mist is located just 20 to 25 minutes from Boone shopping and dining and convenient to every High Country attraction, yet offers a snug feeling of privacy if you need to get away from it all. The cabin is also only 20 minutes from beautiful Watauga Lake that has gorgeous parks, pontoon rentals and fishing.

You'll love coming home to A River Mist!

"My wife and I have been renting the same property from Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals (BRMR) for 7 years for an annual beginning-of-summer vacation. The property is always extremely well-maintained, clean, and well-provisioned, the BRMR staff have always been incredibly helpful and courteous, and they always leave us a nice surprise at the property for check-in (this year it was a box of Girl Scout cookies)."

"My wife and I have vacationed at this property every spring for seven years (except during 2020, when it was unavailable due to COVID). It's cozy, extremely private, and it sits right on the Watauga River. The owners have made numerous upgrades to the property in the past few years, but our favorite features are still the privacy and the sound of the river."

"We had a great time staying at A River's Mist. The cabin is cozy. It is well decorated, stocked with items you may need and even some that are perks that are unexpected. The property is on the river and it was wonderful to hear the water rush over the rapids. Beautiful. A large deck to hangout and enjoy that view. Gas fireplace inside and a fire pit outside which we enjoyed both. We loved the large wall Scrabble game and had foosball competitions. We went hiking about 25 minutes away and had dinner both nights in Boone about 20-25 minutes away. We will certainly be returning to A River's Mist for another stay! Thank you for a great stay!"

On top of that this house was truly a favorite! The house was perfectly appointed. The kitchen had everything I looked for! Great combination of amenities but still a cabin feel. My favorite was sitting in the hot tub with the river flowing and a fire in the out door pit! We loved the secluded location but still an easy drive to Boone. Highly recommend!"

We were very happy to find that the kitchen was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need, there was extra linens, and a nice collection of DVDs and books. The views from the home are beautiful, my kids and I enjoyed swimming in the river just below the home (they had a nice staircase leading down to the river). We also enjoyed the hot tub in the spa-like master bathroom. Overall this was a great place for us to vacation at, we were very happy with the home, and had a great time. This was our first time renting and we will definitely return for our next vacation."

The cabin is always clean and ready to go. And if there's ever been any issues regarding the hot tub, sound system, gas, lighting; etc. They always have a technician to the cabin promptly. Thanks so much. We will definitely book with you again!"

"I am so happy with our trip to Rivermist! Everything was wonderfully laid out in the home. We spent time in the hot tub, listening to music and drinking wine and beer. The dogs loved the area and even enjoyed the river. The kitchen was well stocked, the bathrooms had towels, the beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. The deck was expansive and we loved the upper deck for additional views. I miss it already! My husband recommends that a list of lights to the outside needs to be labelled where they are and what they turn on. We couldn't figure out where the light to the driveway was and how to turn any of the lights on or off. We appreciated the area by the bedroom that looked liked dogs could be cleaned up in there (or fish for that matter) ! Thank you for sharing your home!"
