jadeHOUSE is David and Amy Butler's lovingly restored 1967 A Frame that sits atop a 2 acre peninsula on Watagua Lake, Tennessee

close to the TN/NC border – an hour north of Asheville, between Boone NC and Johnson City TN. 

We are offering exclusive, private rentals year-round. 

1,200 square ft. 3-story Jade House has three bedrooms and three full baths to accommodate 6 adults.

Jade affords full water access via private dock with two kayaks and two paddle boards to explore the 6,500 acre Watagua Lake.

Enjoying the birds and the breeze, peace, quiet & calming water is only one part of the experience. Jade (named after the beautiful hue of water in our isolated cove) is located just minutes from the Appalachian trail deep in the Cherokee National Forest. Extensive hiking trails and waterfalls surround the area. We can help guide you to the best that Tennessee, western Virginia, and North Carolina have to offer!

People ask us if jadeHouse is a good vacation property for children.

In our opinion Jade House isn’t suited for kids, and would be hard for elderly or incapacitated folks to navigate. There are many steep steps both inside and out that don’t have railings and the water is quite deep right off the shore. The cabin is located on a steep hill and there are no flat areas to safely play and explore.  The dock is wonderful, but due to constraints we’re not allowed to have children under 18 on our dock. It’s definitely more of a sophisticated, relaxing, romantic, modern adult retreat (not a party place for sure). A great place to catch up with friends, stare at the water, swim, meditate, read, chill and forget about the rest of the world!
