Minutes to Beautiful Watauga Lake, 30 miles to Bristol Motor Speedway, and mountain views. New tiny cabin that's private and and sits on 2 acres along with the main house. Cozy interior with beautiful outdoor living spaces. This is what dreams are made of!

The space

New and private "tiny house" shabby chic cabin. Long range view is to die for. Looking for the perfect disconnect retreat? This cabin is designed and professionally decorated to perfection, with all the coziness you desire. This home is a 580 square foot tiny cabin with two sleeping lofts. Sleeping lofts only accommodate small children. Smaller teens and adults will enjoy this space too, as it makes you feel like a kid again. There is a master suite with queen bed. Two sleeping lofts, one has one twin bed and the other has two twin beds. The master has a flat screen tv. There is one full bath off of the master along with a door that leads to a large covered/uncovered deck. There is a fire pit located just off the deck. Walk through the front entry into a sitting area and full kitchen. Kitchen includes fridge/freezer, full range, microwave, kuereg, and a small bar sink. The kitchen comes fully stocked with all essentials for cooking a meal. Dining area is located outside on the deck. It is located on 2 acres along with the main house. The main house is an old tobacco barn converted into our second home so we are not there all the time. I will do my best to only schedule bookings when main house is not occupied. If in doubt just ask before booking. Your privacy is important so you can enjoy your entire stay. More and likely you will have the cabin and grounds all to yourself. There is plenty of space to pitch a tent for the kids and/or adults. This is really a gorgeous cabin.

The absolute coziest most beautiful tiny home ever! The location is perfect! It’s super secluded and the views are spectacular! It couldn’t be in a more perfect place! The tiny house is decorated so perfectly! It’s the perfect amount of rustic meets shabby chic! It’s super cheerful and just the perfect escape from the everyday busy lifestyle! I seriously don’t think there is one thing that could have been better!! From the smell of fresh cedar the moment you hit the door to the perfect little details in the decor! It’s simply amazing!

This place was a great find for us. A charming tiny cabin with an incredible view was exactly what we were looking for in a weekend retreat. Aleana was a great host. Very accommodating and responsive.

Can't say enough about the hospitality of A'Leta and her family. 8 of us (a couples and family) rented the cabin for the weekend to attend a football game. Despite the cabin only having enough room for 4 (potentially 6 with a squeeze), we were allowed to bring couple of tents and made the most of the weekend. All the descriptives of the cabin are accurate. It is not a large place - more suited to a family with a couple of kids. Views are spectacular and there everything is available for cooking etc. The lake is nearby with several places to eat plus there is also a winery close by that is rumored to be worth the visit. If you want solitude, space and a base to explore, this is it. Communication with A'Leta is exceptional - she could not not have been more welcoming.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was very clean and comfortable and had all necessary amenities. A'Leta was a very helpful host and was easy to communicate with. The drive from the cabin to the Bristol Motor Speedway was a smooth one. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay.
