Lake Lure cabin description

If it's a water experience that you are looking for, this is it! Nestled among the native rhododendrons and dogwoods of the Appalachian Mountains sets this unique little cabin. Built in the early 1970’s, it is one of the original lakefront homes on Lake Lure. It is truly an exceptional find in that it is set on a 14-acres at the head of Sunset Cove. Also, it is built partially out over the water, which allows an unobstructed view from the porch directly down the cove to the main channel, Chimney Rock, and most importantly the sun setting over the mountains. It is one of the finest views on the lake.

Let us take you back to the earlier, unhurried days of Lake Lure and Hickory Nut Gorge area. Leave the busy life behind and return to the days of real relaxation and rest. You can lounge on the deck in the warm summer sun reading a good book, fish from the dock as the water licks at your feet, swim in the cool refreshing water, go kayaking down the cove, or just sit and watch the sun sparkle and move across the water and then sink behind the mountains.

In its own right, our cabin and dock/bridge are famous - if you're a movie buff. In 1983, several scenes from the movie, Firestarter, were filmed on the property. The most memorable being when Charlie and her dad were captured by 'the Shop' while crossing our very own dock. The film featured an all-star cast with Drew Berrymore, Martin Sheen, & George C. Scott.

The dock/bridge mentioned above extends all the way across the end of the cove(approx. 100 feet)and is truly unique. The entire bridge is ideal for the fishing enthusiast. Two Sea Otter kayaks are on hand as well as a canoe, and 12 ft pontoon paddle boat - all ready to explore Sunset Cove and Lake Lure. Life jackets are on hand as well.

We invite you to come and enjoy your own private get-a-way at Papa Bob’s Cabin. It is a one-room cabin with a large private bathroom/changing area. You will find a queen bed and a queen size sleeper sofa. There is a loft with two twin beds. Appliances include a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and coffee maker. There is central heat and air and a Weber grill. So, bring a good book, your swimsuit, your fishing pole and come relax.

*******DUE TO TOWN REGULATIONS WE CAN ALLOW 4 adults OR 2 adults & 4 CHILDREN********

We have a 1999 Voyager 21' pontoon boat available for rent with our home! The motor is a 90 hp 4 stroke. The pontoon rental is $195/day with a 3 day minimum. PLEASE NOTE: In 2006, Lake Lure has passed a regulation that makes it unlawful for boats with commercial licenses (i.e.our guests) to tow skiiers or tubes, etc behind the boat.**************

By the way, the cabin's property adjoins 'Ledfords Landing' which is VRBO listing # 28758. Combine the properties if you are looking for a large extended area for a family reunion or gathering (together sleeps 14-16). The large grass field on the cabin's property is ideal for games and gatherings. There is a volleyball net and whiffle balls and bat you are welcome to use but we suggest you bring your own glove. Whiffle ball with the kids is one of our favorites!

                Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay in your Cabin. Our Honeymoon was so relaxing and most days were spent sitting on the dock and enjoying the view!!! Traveled the lake in the pontoon... and did some fishing. Thank you for the special touches for our Honeymoon stay. We hope to return in the future.

                We reserved both Ledford's Landing and Uncle Bob's cabin for a reunion with great friends. In total, we had 10 adults and four children. As soon as we arrived, walked onto the roof of the boathouse and looked at the view of Lake Lure, we knew we made a fantastic choice. Everyone fully enjoyed the stay. The location was fantastic and the properties were perfect! We took full advantage of the open floor plans by spending as much time together as possible. There was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable. More importantly the home felt like a home, not a rental property. The home owners have it well stocked throughout the house with comfortable linens, great kitchen and everything you would need. We spent a lot of time around the kitchen, utilized the cozy fireplace and enjoyed the decks outside for day relaxing. We would absolutely return to these properties.

                My wife and I have been visiting the cabin for several years now. It has become our favorite place away from home, our weekend and vacation getaway, our anniversary celebration, and our place to escape from the hectic world around us. It is something you just have to experience to truly appreciate! Imagine sitting on the deck over the water at the secluded end of a quiet cove, watching the sun slowly set behind the mountains. Imagine mornings and evenings quietly paddling around that cove on a great little paddle pontoon catching fish along the banks and returning them in hopes of catching them again on the next trip. Imagine a perfect little cabin furnished in a way that you instantly feel at home and relaxed when you walk in the door. If you can imagine this, we can tell you it is here. You will not be disappointed. We are so grateful to Jenny and Tom for sharing their cabin with folks like us. It truly is a little piece of heaven.

                My family and I absolutely loved our time at Papa Bob's cabin! It was the perfect getaway. The cabin was awesome with some of the prettiest views I've ever seen. They don't call it Sunset Cove for nothing. The kids loved having their own little bedroom "hideaway" upstairs in the loft. We used the kayaks and canoe available and paddled over the entire lake. We even had a family of ducks and a wood chuck visit us every day. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. We will definitely be back next summer and we plan on staying longer!

                As usual, we had a wonderful time at Papa Bob's Cabin and Lake Lure! We've stayed at Papa Bob's six times, and we truly enjoy our time here! That's why we keep coming back! Our family loves to fish, kayak, canoe, paddle boat, read, feed the ducks, and enjoy the specacular view....especially the sunsets. The cabin is always clean and well stocked wih everything we need. For those nights you don't want to cook, there are several good restaurants close by. We enjoy the peace and serenity. If you are looking for a relaxing and low key place to stay, Papa Bob's on Lake Lure is it!

                Spent four days fishing with my brother and had a great time. Papa Bob's is a nice little throwback cabin that you don't find much on lakes in NC anymore. Located close to a fun bar/restaurant and a grocery store. Awesome deck. They call it Sunset Cove for a reason.

                This was a perfect little getaway for our family. The kids enjoyed the paddle boat, fishing, and canoeing. The location is outstanding with a perfect sunset view from the deck. We've stayed at a few places at the lake and this was certainly the best for a small family or couple. We'll definitely be back here!

                Our group of 4 ladies loved having use of the paddle boat, canoe & volleyball field. We enjoyed the place & it suited us well. We were a little shocked at how small the loft was and the steps leading to the loft but it was stil able to sleep all 4 of us comfortably.

                Owner response: Just to clarify: there is a queen bed and queen sleeper sofa downstairs. The loft is small, but great for kids. They love having their own space. There are 2 regular twin beds in the loft.

                Wow, what a great time we had at Papa Bob's! It was absolutely a perfect spot to spend our vacation. The kids LOVED the floating dock, the fishing, the kayaks, the campfires every night, and making friends with the ducks. Us parents loved the solitude, views, and general R&R away from the city. Only wish we could have stayed much, much longer!

                Just a note to thank you for sharing the amazing treasure of Papa Bob's Cabin with us Jul 8-15. We truly enjoyed everything about the cabin, the property, and of course the breathtakingly beautiful Lake Lure. We had a very relaxing stay and could not be happier with the accommodations. We made good use of the kayaks and the paddle boat, and really enjoyed taking the pontoon out to see the rest of the lake. Although we had plenty of rain, we really didn't mind at all. We would just open the windows and listen while reading. The dock was great and the sunsets were amazing, just as described. Don't change a thing - can't wait to visit again.
