  • Lovely spot, lovely weekend

    "We have stayed at Lake Lure multiple times yearly for the past 4-5 years, and this weekend spent at Papa Bob's cabin was one of our favorite trips. Jenny was so easy to communicate with and even rescheduled our weekend after I had a work issue. Our family of four (son, 15 and daughter, 13) were all captured by the charm of this lovely Sunset Cove in Lake Lure as soon as we passed the entrance to the driveway. You felt like you were being "tucked into" a haven as serenity as the driveway winded down to the cutest little cabin. We checked in mid-day and I was awestruck by THE VIEW! THE VIEW! My favorite view at Lake Lure is the middle of the Lake looking back at "The Sleeping Lady of Lake Lure". It is the most beautiful view of the Lake and Papa Bob's cabin is perfectly situated to enjoy that view. The cabin is perfect for a small family of four. It is simple, rustic and cozy. Our kids are older, but they still loved the loft, and we were all quite comfortable. The kids went through a "shell shock" initially as there was limited WIFI signal inside the cabin. We had an unseasonably cold weekend, and they did not brave going outside on the cold deck long just for the sake of an internet signal. So, guess what? After they recovered from the shock of being "unplugged", we actually got to SPEND TIME TOGETHER! We went to the nearby Ingles' and stocked up on all our favorite foods. We watched movies, we played some of the games that were in the cabin, we talked and laughed and slowly but surely we all relaxed. It was so peaceful to sit and look at the VIEW! We went for a hike/walk on the beautiful 14 acre lot and surrounding area and then came back and had hot chocolate. We hung out of the beautiful bench on the expansive dock, and then we went back inside and had more hot chocolate. :) We went to Asheville for a birthday dinner one night and enjoyed the snow covered mountains and road sides along the way through Apple Valley. We were all ready to get back to the cabin afterwards to get back into "relaxation mode" with another movie night and more family time. I drank hot tea and even took a nap while Dad played more board games. Our family enjoyed a perfect weekend there in Papa Bob's cabin and we look forward to booking another visit to this perfect spot at Lake Lure. We'd love to go back in the summer and enjoy some fishing from the dock bench, go back to Chimney rock, canoe in the morning and swim off the floating dock. We highly recommend this rental."

  • What a great home!

    "My husband unlocked the door and said "Wow"! The awesome mountain view is the first thing you see. The home looks exactly like the photographs and is remarkably equipped. You need nothing except your own food and beverage. The Berg Haus is very comfortably decorated and welcoming. Our visit was beautiful, but much too short! There was constant entertainment from the birds at the birdfeeder and the chipmunks stuffing their cheeks full of seed! The home is kept very clean and neat. Just minutes from amazing Zip Lining at Hawk's Nest and a short drive to Banner Elk and Blowing Rock. The steep roads makes a great morning workout to start your day! We will be back and are telling everyone we know how great it is."

  • Wonderfully well maintained cabin with a view and large yard that is great for kids

    "We stayed here with our 3 year old son and invited friends that also have a toddler, so a large, safe yard was a must for us. The yard was perfect for them. It was large and relatively flat, which is a tough find in the mountains. There was a fantastic fire pit that we used to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. The kids loved it. In fact, I already bought the same one for home! The cabin itself was surprisingly well-maintained and well appointed. I've stayed at other VRBO rentals in the Blue Ridge area and this cabin, while small, is much nicer. It has DirecTV and a great sound system. I connected my laptop with a HDMI cable to play music. The owners should consider adding a Roku to the system for Pandora and Netflix. The gas fireplace is easy to use and puts out a lot of heat. The top floor gets really warm because of the open layout, so you may need to open one of the upstairs bedroom windows a bit to vent some of the heat. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals with. I heartily recommend this cabin to other families with small children. Be sure to bring a baby gate for the stairs if they aren't old enough to go up and down by themselves."

  • The perfect place to relax after far too many miles on the trail!

    "My husband and I drove to Mt Mitchell to celebrate my 31st birthday by conquering the mountain. We knew we would be tired so instead of camping, we decided to cabin it. We loved our stay. It was clean, spacious enough for us, and the yard was so precious. We loved sipping on wine and swinging while listening to the creek. After a long day on the trails, Serendipity was just what we needed. We can't wait to come back! Even better, we parked on Thursday and didn't move the car until Sunday!"
