Marion cabin description

This magnificent cabin is located within the gated mountain log home community of Hidden Lake. We sit approx. 10 miles south of the town of Marion, NC below the I-40 interchange, and off of Hwy 226S.

You must see this home to appreciate all that it offers! Constructed of solid cedar logs, The Highlander, is as grand as its name. It has been fully appointed -top to bottom- with only the best and most comfortable furnishings! Upon entering the home, you walk into the ever spacious Great Room, and that it is! A wall of nothing but floor to ceiling windows greets you, looking out over the mountains beyond.

The Great Room features a comfortable sectional with lounger, set in front of the 50” flat screen TV with DirecTV and DVR service. There is a nice cozy electric fireplace in the room, just great for those cooler evenings! Having an open floor plan, the Great Room opens into the Kitchen and Dining areas of the home. Tile floors, countertops, and backsplash, this kitchen has everything you need and more. Stocked with all the pots, pans, glassware, silverware, utensils, etc. you will need to make the meals of your desire. The highbar dining table and chairs has seating for 8. There is additional kitchen island/counter with seating for 4. And just off the dining area is the ever so quaint enclosed gazebo breakfast nook with table and more seating. Be sure to check inside the storage benches for board games, cards, and more! Access to the open back deck is from the gazebo, where you can view wild turkey and deer on an almost regular occasion in the evenings at dusk. There is a dining table and seating for 6 plus extra chairs, along with a propane grill on the deck.

Also on this level you will find a smaller half bath just off the kitchen, that also houses the laundry area for the home. A spacious master suite is beyond, with a queen size bed and another large screen TV. The private full master bath with a tub/shower is located off of it.

Up on the 2nd level of this home is the beautiful open loft area. From here the mountain views are even better! One will find a poker/card table with seating for 4 and all the chips you’ll need for that perfect bet! There is also a fun fooseball table for others to enjoy. There are 2 more bedrooms on this level – again both having queen beds. The bathroom has a walk-in shower.

Heading down to the lower level of the home, you’ll notice the extra wide stairway. This leads to the finished basement area of the home, and brings you into the Recreational Room first. This is “the” place to be if you enjoy a game or two of pool! Sticks provided, but feel free to bring your own. The room looks out to the mountains, but you may just be looking at the 3rd large screen TV which is here. There is a bar with bar stools - a perfect place to make that drink, and also a fridge to chill your beverages. An outdoor firepit is just beyond the french doors, but you will need to bring your own outdoors chairs. You may gather already fallen wood from the area immediately surrounding the home only.

Two more bedrooms are also on this level, again each having a queen bed. The bathroom features a tub/shower. All bedrooms in the home have new dressers, nightstands, floor & table lamps, and alarm clocks with built in cords to hook up your MP3 player. Mattresses are all queen size, and bedding is of higher quality, and very comfortable! Hair dryers are available in each bathroom.

If you don’t find everything you need within the house, head out to one of our common areas within the community. We have our Lakeside Park and Pool Area – giving you the only lake access that is permitted. Here you can fish from our boardwalk or floating dock. Just remember it is catch and release. Or if you have any type of canoe or kayak, you are welcome to bring it along with you, since we do not have any to rent out. Larger, motorized boats are not permitted. Additional fishing, boating and swimming beaches are available at Lake James approx. 25 minutes from us.

We do not allow swimming in the lake, but do have a very nice seasonal inground pool that sits above it. There is a poolhouse containing showers and bathroom facilities. And you are welcome to enjoy the tables and chairs provided. Just keep in mind we have a lot of full time residents that also like to enjoy this area during the summer months. Pool passes will be issued upon check-in.

For those with smaller children, we also have a nice log-style playground with swings, sliding board, and rock wall. There are picnic tables and outdoor grills scattered about the area, if you are wanting to spend more time by the lake. Another smaller common area is our Streamside Park. It too features picnic tables and grills. Another amenity guests enjoy are our walking trails. Easy enough for everyone, the wooded trails take you behind some of the properties here, and along a small pond that is not part of the community, but still nice for viewing.

We provide a very informative binder with all sorts of information on the local areas including maps, brochures, menus, guide books, etc. This will certainly help you find your way around more easily. A starter supply of paper products, dish/laundry detergents, and trash bags is provided. You will need to supply any additional.

We regret that we are unable to accept pets of any type. This is a non-smoking residence. We also are unable to accept bachelor or bachelorette parties, or large youth groups. Please contact us today to reserve this wonderful home for your next vacation or getaway! You won't be disappointed!
