Property description

Relax on one of two porches of this log home and let your worries drift away in the breeze. Located in the Riverbend community of Lake Lure, NC this log home offers a quiet community with a private lake and beautiful scenery all around. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch and catch site of a white tailed deer or wild turkey.

This cozy log cabin sits just above the rambling Broad River below. Grab a raft and float leisurely down river or cast your line and catch one of the trout just off the bank. Evening brings the sounds of katydids and firefly shows. The variety of trees and birds provide a colorful and cheerful background.

Enjoy swimming and kayaking in Mirror Lake (a private lake with swimming beach and picnic facilities) or meander past the falls through the nature trails across from the beach. Relax in the community gazebo and watch the children slide down the river rocks into cool stream waters.

The cabin is beautifully appointed with antique reproductions, fireplace, ceiling fans, TV, DVD player and a large collection of movies and games. Sleeping accommodations offer two bedrooms (one queen and one full bed) with master bedroom on main floor and an additional full size futon in the upstairs loft, to easily accommodate sleeping for six. Two full baths - downstairs master bath features a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. All linens are provided. Central heat and air as well as washer and dryer provide all the comforts of home.

The kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator, freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, crock pot, pots and pans, utensils and dishes. There is a gas grill and patio furniture provided for outdoor relaxation.

Enjoy tubing on the Broad River, ziplining nearby, horseback riding, taking a narrated boat tour of Lake Lure, visit the Biltmore Estate (45 minutes away) hiking at Chimney Rock, and shopping in nearby villages. Children will enjoy the KidSense Hands On Children's Museum in nearby Rutherfordton. Grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants are all easily located in the town of Lake Lure. Three golf courses can be enjoyed within a 10 minute drive. Skiing, tubing, and local wineries are all within driving distance.

Well behaved pets are welcome. No smoking please.
