Emerald River House

Location: Sugar Grove, Vilas & Bethel Cabin Rental Type: Mountain Homes View: Riverfront
3 Beds 2 Baths Sleeps 6 No

The Emerald River House offers the ultimate solitude and relationship to this special part of the Watauga River Gorge.  Crystal clear swimming holes and rushing river rapids along your own private 850 ‘ of shoreline with 4 sections of sandy beach.  Cast your fishing rod or jump in the tube and float the 60 min trip to the local “let out” (someone will have to pick you up!). A private ¼ mile hiking trail along the river's edge has multiple picturesque beaches and is a great place to explore.  The flat yard allows for bocce ball and badminton or you can just relax in the hammocks and nap to the sound of the river rapids.  Bring the evening in on the large deck with gas barbecue or sharing stories around the fire-pit. The owner “chef” has paid special attention to ensure that the kitchen is well stocked for those that enjoy cooking.  

Enjoy comfortable beds with lovely linens and cozy blankets. The on-suite master bed has a King bed, a luxurious tub and double sinks.  Second bed with the Queen and third bedroom has a full size bed, both share a bath. After a good night's sleep, enjoy delightful mornings overlooking the beautiful river, listening to nature sounds and bring in another day. 

With beautiful tubing, swimming, nature walks, hammocks, a fire pit and more, you will never want to leave this river home.  If you do, downtown Boone is only 15 minutes away.  Close to Valle Crucis, Banner Elk, Beach Mountain and only 30 minutes to Blowing Rock.
