Stop in and visit with us. Few places in the world exhibit as much natural beauty as upper East Tennessee. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain range at the confluence of two trout-bearing rivers, the Doe and the Watauga, the small town of Elizabethton is quaint, picturesque and steeped in history.
Carter County itself extends east and south of Elizabethton and grows from around 1500 feet in elevation to a height of 6285 feet near the spectacular balds of Roan Mountain.
Surrounded by the lush Cherokee National Forest, etched by natural rivers, rippling streams and bejeweled by the clean, cool waters of Watauga and Wilbur lakes, Carter County offers the full breadth and depth of outdoor experiences to please fishermen, hikers and all other nature lovers.
