If you are looking for a wonderful escape to the mountains of NC, we have just the place for you at The Cottage at Hidden Lake! This is a wonderful cabin with high-end appliances and fixtures! It has all the modern luxuries of home, but offers a cozy & sophisticated retreat for you to unwind and relax!
Located in McDowell County, approx. 10 miles south of the town of Marion, NC. It is situated below I-40 just off of Hwy 226 South. The cabin is in the gated log home community called Hidden Lake. This is a 2 level cabin with wonderful mountain and pasture views. It also overlooks a local winery due to open in 2014. It sits off of a quiet, side road in a peaceful setting. Deer and wild turkey are seen in the area, especially at dusk!
Upon entering the home you will be in the cottage-like surroundings of the combination living room, and eat-in kitchen. The living room features a gas log fireplace, TV(with HD-DirecTV & Wii system), comfy sofa, with additional side chairs. The kitchen has everything needed to cook the meal of your choice. The table offers seating for 6.
The bedroom on this floor features a King Size bed with lots of closet space. The bathroom has a very elegant & romantic claw foot tub that also doubles as a shower. A double vanity sink with built-in medicine cabinets and separate toilet room finish off the space. Also located on this floor are the top-loading full size washer and dryer.
Going upstairs you will come to the 2nd bedroom with a King Size bed and sitting area great for reading or relaxing. There are wonderful views from this level! The bathroom here features a very large jetted tub with more than enough room for two, and it's also heated! There are 2 pedestal sinks, a toilet, and large glass/tiled shower with a rainfall showerhead, hand-held wand and bench seat.
Outside of the cabin, adjoining the living room, is a large screened-in porch just great for unwinding in the evenings. A propane gas grill is here, along with a comfortable seating arrangement for dining or just relaxing.
There is also a fire pit in the backyard, and you are welcome to gather fallen wood, from the immediate area around the home only. 2 chairs for around the pit are provided, so you will need to provide any extras.
Guests staying here will also have access to the community common areas featuring a small 10-acre fishing lake (swimming not allowed in the lake). If you have a small canoe or kayak, you are welcome to bring that with you (as there are none to rent) and use it in the lake. Fishing is catch & release only. Additional fishing, boating, and swimming beaches are available at Lake James State Park, approx. 25 minutes from us.
There are also picnic tables & grills at the Lakeside Park for your use. Sitting above the lake is the seasonal inground pool and poolhouse with shower & bathroom facilities. Other common areas include a streamside park with more picnic tables and grills. And there are some easy nature walking trails to enjoy!
We regret that we cannot accept pets of any type. This is also a non-smoking residence. A starter supply of paper products, dish & laundry detergents, and trash bags are also provided. You will need to furnish any additional.
