CALL OUR OFFICE FOR THESE LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS! Sun-Thurs nights only, April 2019, based upon availability: $145/nt 2 Night Minimum Paradise Found is brought to you by the creator the Dog House, Monkey Business and A River Runs Through It, which is located through the woods next door. 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 and release only. Live or scented baits are not permitted. Fly fishing guide services are available upon request. When it rains, the river rises and the kayakers come out to shoot the rapids. Paradise Found and A River Runs Through It are two log cabins that comprise a 2.75 acre complex with the Watauga River running through the center of the property. Both cabins were 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.  The cathedral pine ceiling and skylights of Paradise Found create a spacious warm feeling as you walk in. The main level features oak floors, a wood burning fireplace, Bose entertainment system, a well equipped kitchen and  spectacular views of the river. You will also find the large master bedroom with a hand-hewn hemlock beam ceiling, king size bed, flat screen TV and full bath. This cabin is accessorized with fine original art, antiques and old photographs. Walk onto the screened-in porch and experience hundreds of feet of waterfalls, boulders and pools. Enjoy unique riverfront dining at the granite table with four chairs or relax at the sitting area or in the Hot Springs spa. The porch opens onto a large deck with expansive river views, a picnic table and gas grill. Both cabins are conveniently located near the 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.  PET FEE: $25 PER NIGHT MATURE DOGS ONLY PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FOR THESE LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS!
