Lake Lure cabin description

THANK YOU to returning and new guests! The cabin has, once again,sold out for the summer and fall. It is a pleasure to share it. May you feel that it is your 'home away from home'.

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, savoring 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 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.

CABIN FEATURES
Lovingly furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and rustic pieces, the great room has a fireplace, cathedral ceiling, skylights, and ceiling fans. TV, VCR, DVD player, a large collection of movies, satellite TV, WiFi, and board games provide many choices for entertainment.

Sleeping accommodations offer two bedrooms (one king; one queen), and a futon in the great room converts to a double bed. Two full baths (linens provided). Ceiling fan in each room. Central heat and air.

Broadband (high speed internet) and WiFi are convenient for checking out local attractions and keeping in touch.

The kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster over, coffee maker, crock pot, blender, pots and pans, utensils, and dishes.

Favorite spots are the deck and the two screened porches. A hammock chair, cedar porch swing, gas grill, and patio furniture are provided for your enjoyment. The double hammock under the trees is a great spot to read.

COMMUNITY AMENITIES

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              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.
