Things to do during "cabin time" in Butler
Watauga Lake rentals in Butler TN are surrounded by the lush Cherokee National Forest. Located in Johnson County and right off of Watauga Lake, Butler, Tennessee lodging, cabins and house rentals have both wilderness and downtown events to satiate nearly anyone. Known as “The town that wouldn’t drown,” Butler had a history of flooding and eventually Watauga Lake rose so high that the town was moved to higher ground, keeping the name and renaming the old site under Lake Watauga “Old Butler”. Cabin renters can learn more about “Old Butler” and the town’s history by visiting The Butler Museum.
Nowadays, Lake Watauga is one of Butler’s biggest tourist destination, playing host to fishermen, swimmers, canoes, boats, wake boarding, sailing, and many other types of water sports. Secluded within the surrounding mountains, a visit to Lake Watauga is a relaxing hideaway with stunning panoramic views and a friendly atmosphere.
Venture into town around the beginning of August and experience Old Butler Days; an annual festival held in the heart of downtown Butler that celebrates the town’s history and presents live music, food and lots of local vendors and merchants. Wine and food enthusiasts can visit the Watauga Lake Winery for a tour, taste testing, hands-on cooking classes, and even grape stomping.
