Description

Get away to this charming riverside log cabin! Situated on the bank of the Watauga River, you can walk out the door and wade into the water and fly fish to your heart's content.

The main level has a great room with vaulted exposed-beam ceilings and suede furniture arranged around a stone wood burning fireplace with a TV & BluRay player mounted overhead. Vintage fly rods decorate the room, and there's a rustic Christmas tree in one corner decorated with a fly fishing theme. A round table for four by sliding glass doors overlooks the river, and there's another table for 6 in the dining room. The dining room has its own wood burning fireplace and is beside the spacious kitchen with stone flooring. There is also a half bath with washer & dryer on this level.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a full bath with a tiled shower and skylight. The first bedroom has a Queen bed and sliding doors to the upper deck, and at the end of the hall is the master bedroom. This room has a wood fireplace in the corner, a King bed, a loveseat couch, and a daybed with trundle, along with a TV and a set of sliding doors to the upper deck. There are window a/c units in the bedrooms and living room.

The lower floor of the cabin has a second living area featuring a foosball table, HDTV with DVD player, Golden Tee arcade game, and sleeper sofa. There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower combination, and at the end of the hall is a bedroom with two Queen beds in it.

There's just as much to enjoy outside this cabin as there is inside. The top level deck has a hammock, porch swing, and padded loveseat overlooking the river. The main level deck has the gas grill and a selection of rocking chairs. Outside the lowest level you'll find the hot tub, a swing for kiddos, and the gravel path to the firepit with the river just a few feet on down the trail. Relax and listen to the rushing Watauga River as you roast marshmallows in the waterside firepit!

Draggin' Fly is conveniently located along a road that, 100 years ago, was part of the railbed for Tweetsie Railroad when she ran from Elizabethton TN to Todd NC as part of the ET&WNC Railroad, and is just 10 minutes outside of Boone near historic Valle Crucis. There are several whitewater and fly fishing guide services nearby, and all the great attractions the High Country has to offer are just a short drive away. You're sure to love everything about this charming riverside log cabin!

"A beautiful view of the Watauga river that was easy to access. The cabin had everything we needed to grill/cook and was close to an Ingles grocery store. Easy to spot wildlife. I would advise double bagging your garbage and not putting it in the trash container until your checkout date. We felt at home and plan to return in the future."

"We had a great stay at the Draggin Fly. The weather was horrible (cold and storming) but the sounds of the river and rain made for a peaceful experience at the house. The houses next door are pretty close but it feels private when you’re outside and in the back. The neighbors dogs (mentioned before) weren’t an issue at all. The road to get to the house is a gravel one lane road which made us really nervous coming and going, but lucky for us not a ton of people live on the road and we never ended up running into someone going the opposite direction. We’d love to come back when the weather calls for more sun so we can enjoy the river a bit more!"

"Had a great stay here and would definitely come back. Perfect location for exploring the area, and if you want to fish or otherwise enjoy the river, this is amazing access to a beautiful part of the Watauga. As far as larger rental companies go we found Blue Ridge Rentals very communicative and helpful. We cooked quite a bit in the cabin and were very comfortable throughout our stay. The only downside is being right across the river from NC 105 but it really wasn't a big deal. One other note is while there is A/C and heat, neither are central, so in very warm or cold months you do need to do a bit of temperature maintenance. Again, it didn't end up being an issue for us at all."

"I can't say enough good things about this getaway. It's a home that you can check into and not need to leave. So much to enjoy inside and outside of the property. We did a family vacation with ages ranging from mid 50's to 5 and we all had a great stay. 3 weeks later and my 5 year old is still asking to go back. We loved all the fireplaces and the cozy feeling of the cabin. We did a Walmart grocery delivery the morning we got there but there is a Ingles just down the road. We will definitely book here again. Highly recommend."

The kids can't stop raving about the trip, playing on the rocks of the river and enjoying family time around the fire pit. It was indeed a great place to remember "Papa" our father that past away in September. A true lifelong fisherman, and fisher of men!
