This cozy log cabin in Lake Lure, North Carolina, embraces you from the moment you enter - any time of year. Whether it's morning coffee on the porch, watching the sunset over the mountains from the deck, enjoying the beach on a sunny summer day at Mirror Lake or Lake Lure, or cuddling in front of the fire on a winter's eve, you are encouraged to catch your breath and relax in a tranquil, natural setting in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps the window seat or the hammock will encourage you to indulge in a good book or a well-deserved nap. Enjoy lunch on either screened porch. We are pet friendly!
NOTE: Please read the descriptions under each of the photos. This cabin is not on the lake.
PICK YOUR SEASON Springtime brings the cabin's great show of azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. From the deck during the summer watch the hummingbirds and bluebirds by day and the fireflies in the evening. The variety of trees provides a colorful, wondrous autumn. Winter mountain views are majestic.

About the owner: The 'Boys' and I enjoy walks and play time, both at the cabin and at home. Daily walks help me to appreciate nature with new eyes every morning. I'm a former teacher and college professor and currently do training and customer support for a software company. The cabin is a labor of love, and it's an enjoyment to share it with guests. I take great pride in providing a welcoming and comfortable refuge for you.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure: Although only a two hour drive from Columbia, SC, the Lake Lure area is a world away from the city. The scenic vistas inspire and soothe the soul. The area offers a variety of activities. One of my personal favorites is walking with the dogs in the morning - either from the cabin to Amy's Ridge or in town at Morse Park on the shore of Lake Lure.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The cabin is in a private setting on over an acre on a gated road, yet it is convenient to the huge grocery store, restaurants, and the area attractions. Being in a gated community, guests have access to a private lake with swimming beach and a scenic picnic area along the river. The town of Lake Lure with a large town beach is only a 15 min. drive.
