The beauty of Northeast Tennessee is not just surrounding mountains and Watauga Lake but the close proximity to winter sports in Boone and Beech Mountain ski resorts. With 2 or 3 different roads and access points, the resorts are within an easy hours drive from just about any area around Butler. Tennessee and North Carolina road departments perform an excellent job in maintaining the roads even during extreme weather. Ski resorts include, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, Appalachian Ski Resort and Wolf Ridge Ski Resort. Stop by Tennessee Lake Properties for more information.
