What sets this house apart is its private dock and large swimmable shoreline. At Whipkins Cove, you can swim in a shallow area (gets deep gradually) near fire circle or plunge into deep water at the dock. One of the few areas around lake where you feel safe swimming out from shore.

This is a great home for multi-generational groups or two families vacationing together. Be sure to check out the video tour (with guided audio).

Home has three distinct living 'zones.' Top floor has master bed (king) with private bath (soaking tub and separate shower) and loft (w/ built-in double bed).

Middle floor has open kitchen/dining/living area (w/fireplace), 1/2 bath off kitchen, and master bedroom (king) with private bath (shower only).

Lower floor has mudroom with extra-large capacity W/D, 1/2 bath, entertainment area with sofa/love seat/fireplace/50-inch TV, and a large bedroom with two sets of bunkbeds and private bath (tub/shower combo and double sinks).

Outside there are four levels of decks, two covered porches and a huge waterfront with boulders to relax on. Fire circle at lakeside. Swim right off the dock or shore (from your own private gravel beach with large sitting stones).

Thank you for choosing Whipkins Cove! A few notes:

SUMMER RENTALS: We try to book complete weeks during the summer. Weeks that haven't rented by mid-May are available for shorter stays. Please call or email if you're not able to book these online.

FEES: The cleaning fee goes directly to the housekeeping team. It's high... but we demand a lot of them. Beds are triple sheeted (bottom sheet... then top sheet - down comforter - top sheet). Makes the beds feel great, but takes housekeeping more time. They also stock toiletries, coffee pods and other items. Guests usually rave about the great job they do.

TAXES: Sales taxes are also high (14.5%) but they help keep Watauga Lake beautiful.

FISHING: Watauga Lake has great sport fishing (according to people who know more about fishing than I do). The common fish can be caught right off the dock or shoreline. Adults need a fishing license, which is available at stores and gas stations. Check the Dry Hill Diner (address in house) for rates and licenses.
