Property Description

Last minute specials! Book now to receive nights in August 2021 for $145/night. 

Paradise Found is brought to you by the creator of The Dog House 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, HDTV with Roku streaming services and SlingTV for regular programming, a well equipped kitchen with both a Keurig and regular coffee maker, 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. 

OFF-PEAK SPECIAL: Stay longer than the minimum number of nights and automatically receive a 5-15% Discount -

Excluding Holidays.



Guests returning to Paradise Found may have a 10% discount, not to be combined with other discounts to the rent.

Great Cabin, Great Location
By Erica On 01/07/2021
This cabin was perfect for our small family. The hot tub overlooking the River, fireplace at night, cute deck were a few favorite touches. The proximity to town and surrounding destinations were a huge bonus for us. 10/10

View is beautiful. Even better in person. House is the perfect size for a couple! Great location to Boone and blowing rock and all the wineries. . Can't wait to return! Perfect get away for a hectic lifestyle

Paradise Definitely Found!
By John On 12/30/2020
Absolutely a wonderful property! Couldn't be happier with the cabin, view, amenities, and location. Highly recommend Blue Ridge Rentals and this property! Other than having to leave, we would not change a thing...

Paradise Found Is Wonderful
By Trevor On 12/14/2020
Went for 4 nights this past week with girlfriend. Property is lovely, the owner and management team were very helpful and quick with responses during our stay. This place is a great value and the view of the river is worth the stay alone. Highly recommend!

Relaxing Weekend!
By Kristine On 12/14/2020
As many have mentioned, the cabin is even better in person!! The beautiful sound of the river, fire, hot tub and adorable cabin all made for an amazing weekend in the mountains!! We will definitely go back again!!

Perfect Getaway
By Sallie On 11/30/2020
We spent Thanksgiving at Paradise Found and it was one of our best holidays. The cabin was clean, quaint, well stocked and convenient to hiking and town. The view of the river from the deck and the relaxing sound was heaven. We also really enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. Can't wait to return.

Even Better In Person
By Tracy On 11/23/2020
Our experience at A Paradise Found was absolutely perfect! We loved the Cabin! So clean and super cozy! We used the wood burning fireplace all three nights! The screened in porch with jacuzzi was so relaxing! My husband spent hours fly fishing! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Mountain Getaway
By Holly On 11/13/2020
A scenic cabin situated down a gravel road, by a beautiful river in a great location. The cabin had everything we needed, while still being a quick drive to Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock. It was wonderful sitting on the screened porch and being mesmerized by the flowing river's sight and sounds.

Great Cabin On The River
By Leslie On 09/10/2020
Our family had an amazing vacation! The cabin was so cute and the view of the river was amazing! Access to the river was simple and allowed us to easily take our boys to play in the water each day. The location was perfect too! Short commute to everything we did; Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Gem Mining and the original MAST general store. Don't hesitate and book today! So glad we did

Very Relaxing
By Brent On 08/31/2020
This is one of the better and more unique properties in the High Country. Very nice and very peaceful. It sits right on top of the (quite peacefully loud) Watauga River and you will never want to leave the porch overlooking the water. We recommended it to all our family and friends. Time will fly by at this place so get it for at least 4 nights.

Paradise Found
By Keith On 08/07/2020
Paradise found is a great place for a family of 4. We had a great time and the cabin could not be closer to the river. Wow i wish i could give it 10 stars.

Paraside Found
By Keith On 07/29/2020
Great location and right on the river. We will be back for sure.

Wonderful Vacation
By Roy On 07/13/2020
Wonderful vacation. It was amazing. The most relaxation and fun my family has had in a long time. Looking forward to another stay.

5 Stars
By Stephanie On 06/16/2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the mountains! Getting to our cabin and checking in could not have been easier, thanks to Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. The place was described perfectly and we felt well taken care of, should any needs arise. We were able to begin our family fun immediately and no time was wasted.

By Rich On 03/23/2020
Perfect size cabin for a couple or small family. Set right on the Watuga River, full kitchen, the Keurig and Washer/dryer is a bonus. Hot tub filled hot water and ready to go on arrival. Will stay here again!

Guest Review
By Amy On 03/20/2020
Wonderful experience and very clean.

By Anne On 02/26/2020
Our stay at Paradise Found was fabulous as always!

By Dale On 02/18/2020
Perfect place for a getaway. All we could hear was the sound of the rive and the crackling of the fire. Very easy check-in and checkout. Great communication. The cabin was very well stocked with all you need.

By Dale On 02/12/2020
The photos don't do the place justice. It's wonderful. Easy check in and out. Great communication and a very convenient spot not to far from the best town in NC. We will definitely be back.

By Paul On 01/29/2020
Relaxing and quiet

By Gregg On 01/20/2020
Our second visit to A Paradise Found and it was as delightful (if not more!) than our first stay. And the check in/check out process with Blue Ridge is now more simplified and things couldn't have been more convenient. I've forwarded the link to Blue Ridge's website to so many friends now, I want to share this excellent experience with as many people as i can. Everything's TOP NOTCH, you guys. Thanks a bunch for all you do, to make our stay so wonderful!

By Ramon On 01/06/2020
Had a great experience at the Paradise Found cabin along the Watauga River. Booking was easy and received constant communications from BlueRidge Rental Company management regarding the property and reservations. Cabin and fly fishing and snow tubing was great. Would definitely stay again. Thanks

By Kristian On 11/20/2019
Paradise Found is a lovely home. It's a wonderful place to watch the river, have a fire and completely relax. The customer service from Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was spectacular. This is one of our new favorite spots and we will visit again!

By Ginny On 09/12/2019
This property is beautiful inside and out! We enjoyed our stay. The river is mesmerizing. Perfect place to rest and unwind!

By Greg On 08/15/2019
The river and this home are the perfect remedy from the heat and traffic we have in Destin Fl during the Summer. The owner is a great host and we truly loved feeding the trout. Greg & Bebe Conant

By Kim On 07/16/2019
This was my 4th visit to A Paradise Found. Honestly I think everyone should add this place on their bucket list. If you enjoy solitude, outdoors, streams, wildlife and nature then this is the place to come. My husband and I take our 2 dogs and I think the dogs love it as much as we do.The house is so dog friendly with gates securing the large outside deck, a screened in cozy porch with rockers and table and chairs for dining outside. While outside you can enjoy the creek with roaring rapids and plenty of fish to catch/ release. If you are lucky you will see plenty of cute little critters hanging out by the rocks and rapids. Although this is your average looking mountain cabin, the inside is decorated with history and charm, yet so inviting and cozy. Convenient to plenty of shopping, dining, hiking, exploring etc..I have and will continue to always book with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. Best customer service experience I have ever had with rental companies.They go the extra mile to make sure from beginning to end you feel at ease with the process. During our stays they always reach out to see if we are ok and to make sure we have all we need! This place is one of my favorite vacation spots of all times. I am positive you would feel the same way once you have stayed. I will mention the site mentions it's a 1 bedroom and it's not. There is a bedroom and bathroom upstairs and a beautiful bedroom and bath downstairs. I have rented the cabin in winter, spring, summer and fall. I enjoyed them all so much it would be to hard to say which time to go! Take a chance and give them a try you will have no regrets and you will certainly be back! I don't actually like to review this place because it is my little private getaway but, the owner and Blue Ridge Rentals are worthy of the praising. Hope this helps you consider your next mountain getaway. Thank you !!

By Jennifer On 06/18/2019
The river alone is worth the stay! We arrived at night so we couldn't see it, but as soon as we got out of the vehicle and heard the roaring waters we were so excited. The first morning we sat on the porch and just watched and listened to the water. Every day we went down and explored the river and our kids kept asking for more river time. We used the fire pit and the fireplace with ease. The highway is just on the other side of the river, so you do see and hear the occasional vehicle. The water pretty well drowns out the noise with the exception of 18 wheelers or motorcycles. I imagine in the colder months, when the leaves are gone, you'll see more of the highway. Regardless of that, we will absolutely be returning in the future!

By Kerry On 04/02/2019
Great service and communication before and after the rental.

By Charles On 11/21/2018
A Paradise Found was the perfect mountain get-away that we were looking for! Situated close to Boone, this cabin offered convenience while not sacrificing on the mountain appeal that we really wanted for our visit. We plan to return in the future. Absolutely beautiful property!

By Shannon On 11/08/2018
My family and I stayed at Paradise Found. It was the absolute best place we had ever stayed. We opted out of any site seeing once we were in the cabin...there could not have been a prettier site any place other than where we were. I was almost certain that when it was time to leave I would have to drag my husband kicking and screaming out of our cabin. :)

By Andrew On 10/25/2018
This is the the 3rd home we've rented through Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. The staff is great to work with. The home was clean, well furnished and comfortable for our family. We enjoyed our getaway and will work with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals again on our next high country vacation!

By Kelly On 10/11/2018
We will definitely be back to this amazing property, "Paradise Found." I could lose weeks at a time just sitting on the porch, listening to the creek.

By Diane On 08/07/2018
Thank you so much! We had an awesome time. The house was great! Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. The river was beautiful the house was super comfortable, the kitchen adequately supplied, the beds were great and we all enjoyed the hot tub on those cool rainy days.

By Lisa On 07/02/2018
Our entire experience was wonderful, from reserving to directions to the excellence of the place we stayed. We would rent through Blue Ridge again!
