Description

"Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it."
- Norman Maclean

New gap special prices on April 6-12th, 2024!

The Watauga River begins its 60 mile journey on the northern slopes of Grandfather Mountain and flows generally north and west into Watauga Lake on the North Carolina/ Tennessee border. The word "Watauga" is derived from the Cherokee word "Watagi" meaning "beautiful waters" or "whispering waters." This dynamic riparian zone is actually a migration corridor for many varieties of fish, birds and animals and plays a significant role in preserving biodiversity.

During good weather you can explore the river or try your luck at catching a variety of trout such as brook, brown or rainbow. This section of the Watauga River is now privately stocked and is exceptional for fly fishing! ALL fishing is single artificial lure, catch & release only (no live or scented baits or corn please). Fly fishing guide services are available upon request. When it rains, the river rises and the kayakers come out to shoot the rapids.

A River Runs Through It is situated on 2.75 acres with the Watauga River running through the center of the property. The cabin was built of hand-hewn hemlock from Washington State and pine paneling from Watauga County. Access to the property is a tree-lined gravel road that was once a portion of the railroad bed of the Western North Carolina- East Tennessee Railroad.

A circular driveway winds around Rhododendron and welcomes you to A River Runs Through It. On the covered entrance deck you will find plenty of rocking chairs and a limited stack of firewood.

This cabin provides a cozy feeling with hand-hewn hemlock logs and beams, leather furniture, oak floors, area rugs and a stone fireplace with firewood provided. Original artwork and pottery along with track lighting with dimmers accent the main level. A surround sound TV/DVD/CD system with streaming services and SlingTV for regular programming and high speed wireless internet provide entertainment. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. One bedroom with a king size bed, flat screen TV and a full bath with a granite top double sink vanity and Jacuzzi tub complete this floor inside.

Upstairs you will find a large bedroom furnished with antiques, quilts and a flat screen TV, along with another full bath, and the air hockey game room with a Queen sized air mattress tucked in the closet. A cell booster has been added to the home for enhanced cell reception.

Step from the kitchen onto the new deck and use the grill, table and chairs to dine on the river; or enjoy the six-person Hot Springs spa with moto-massage and a fountain. Stairs lead from the deck to the river. Outside is a fire pit for guests to enjoy, as well.

A River Runs Through It is conveniently located near a main artery that connects the ski slopes of Avery County with the exceptional antique shops of Foscoe with the rich history of Valle Crucis with the great dining and entertainment of Boone and Blowing Rock. Several whitewater and fishing guide services are also located nearby.

"The cabin was great, it was very clean. The back deck is the selling part of this location. The view is amazing and calming. I do have a few complaints. It is extremely hard getting in and out of the rock dirt road.. I was also shocked when you first pull in a junkyard looking area is the first thing you see when you turn onto the road. I must say I was a little scared at first about what I had spent my money on. I also felt like all you could smell was marijuana coming into the road, and in the front area of the cabin. However the smell was not in the back area. Not sure what kind of wildlife that would be. Over all our stay was great, and we were happy with the cabin."

Would definitely stay again. Wish i had brought my fly rod. It was very convenient to Boone. The only surprise was the added $200.00/night fee for renting during “ski season”. It wasn’t until the final step of reserving the house that that extra fee was apparent to me."

"The cabin itself was spotless and comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with many more items than I expected! The beds were very comfortable and slept well. The hot tub was very clean and we enjoyed it very much! The cons are that the road leading to the cabin is gravel, narrow, and one car width, with overgrown bushes that scratched my truck and goes past some sketchy-looking homes. The other side of the river is a major road and produces a lot of road noise, I was expecting it to be quiet. I really wanted a fire but there was no wood available, it was raining when we arrived and wood at the grocery store was 12 dollars for a small bundle."

"This was my husband and I's second time staying here and we brought our 12 year old son who had an absolute blast and is talking about when we are going back! ) This is truly our home away from home, and we have found our own drop of paradise hidden in the woods and backing up to the Watauga River. We arrived Friday afternoon and our son Colton was over the moon with excitement because he got the whole upstairs to himself, which includes a state of the art Air Hockey table that we played on a lot and had a great time. He had a TV in his bedroom and a full bath to himself, little man couldn't be happier. You can walk right outside on the back porch and have total privacy while you walk to the hot tub, which is definitely one of our favorite things to do any time during the day. Colton's face when he saw that he had a hot tub was priceless, so full of excitement. Downstairs you have everything you need, and my husband cooked almost every meal, which made it feel even more like being at home. We grilled steaks one night on the back porch, and sat outside watching the River as the sun was coming down. True Serenity. Saturday we walked out to the River and jumped from rock to rock, making it a good ways down, and made a friend with a goose who stuck close the whole trip. Colton and the Goose, was so fun to watch. Later on that day we ventured into town and did some shopping, and also went rock mining and found some beautiful stones. Fun for the whole family. I can't say enough great things about this Cabin and how much privacy you have. We are already talking about our next trip to a River Runs Through It. So grateful that I came across this property on line and I don't have to look any further when I'm going to the NC Mountains. This is our special place that we can enjoy year after year and continue to make wonderful memories. My family and I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to BlueRidge Mountain Rentals, which is hands down, the best Rental company I have ever worked with in my life. They make the process seamless and fun and are there to help you in any way. Thank you so much ladies for truly making my family and I the happiest people in the world.

Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals provided a seamless process and outstanding customer service. We will continue to use them moving forward. Kent provides firewood, which was a nice touch and the cabin is spotless and has everything you need. We cooked most meals in the cabin and it is truly now our home away from home.

We visited all of the craft breweries in Boone, Banner Elk, Beech Mountain,. Thank you for sharing these hidden paradise. We Will Be Back!"

"We could not be happier with our stay at A River Runs Through It. This was a very quick decision weekend for our family and somehow lucked our with this home being available. Our fur baby thoroughly enjoyed herself too because it's the first time she's been on a vacation with us. We can't wait to return over the next 4 years since our child will be attending college in Boone! So excited. Thanks very much!"

"This was our 3rd visit to River Runs Through It located on the GORGEOUS Watauga River. My husband and I along with our 2 four legged family members had an amazing experience for the 18 days that we stayed. We can honestly say that this cabin now feels like home away from home. We are both realtors from Tampa, Fl and have experienced many vacation rentals and homes that do not compare to this cozy, well built, fully stocked cabin. From the minute you get here you have everything you need. The owner takes a special interest in your needs and makes sure that he is available if you have any questions or need assistance on where to go or how to catch a fish. For those nesting cabin days that you just don't want to go anywhere you even have all the upgraded cable channels to watch plenty of movies and escape the world. The location could not be better if you want to check out the town. You can get to so many beautiful places in less than 20- 30 minutes. We highly recommend this cabin and plan on coming back every year."

"This cabin is a trout fisherman's paradise! The trout fishing was fantastic and I was able to land the largest trout I have ever caught. We visit the mountains a couple of times a year to fly fish for trout and we usually have to spend half of our vacation time driving to a fishing spot. It was so nice to have such great fishing in our backyard! The cabin is very comfortable and private and just a short easy drive to great restaurants and shopping. We hope to return soon."

"Outstanding in every way! We stayed four nights in this cabin right at the start of fishing season. Its an outstanding cabin with all the amenities one could hope for and located in a beautiful setting along the Watauga River. We feel very fortunate to have selected it for our vacation in North Carolina and are already talking about when we might return. Highly recommended!"
