About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This wonderful cabin provides the ideal convenient location (near both Lake Lure and Rutherfordton) without sacrificing privacy and tranquility. Comfortably sleeps 8, king in master, queen in second bedroom + loft w/full bed, 2 twins. Direct access to the Broad River.

Perched privately on a hill with fabulous river views, spacious screened in porch, a lovely stone fireplace and all the conveniences of home, you'll find this getaway is "one of a kind."

Relax on the spacious screened porch overlooking a huge backyard inviting you to the river's edge. Spend your day by or on the river… lazily floating on a tube, pulling trout off your line, exploring in your kayak or simply relaxing with your favorite book in the yard by the water. You can choose to enjoy the warmth and glow of our amazing fire pit. Perfect for roasting marsh-mellows and hotdogs. Enjoy an outdoor meal on the oversized picnic table under shelter at the river's edge. Grill steaks or BBQ your favorite cut in our charcoal grill/smoker located under shelter next to the house.

Perfect for that family vacation, reunion, getaway or nature escape. Many activities within walking distance - visit a gem mine, rent river tubes and kayaks next door — they'll take you up river so you can drift back to the cabin - or bring your own! 10 minutes away you'll find the Lake Lure Golf course - and just 5 minutes more you can visit the famous Lake Lure - take out a paddle boat, ski, wakeboard, or swim at the local beach.

At night, you can relax by the fire pit or in our great room with fireplace. The cabin comes equipped with DISH TV in the great room, main bedroom downstairs, and loft upstairs. Great for the business traveler too, with free internet, phone, and plenty of room to work in a peaceful setting.

River Landing log cabin is located 15 minutes from Lake Lure near the charming small town of Rutherfordton. For horse lovers, we are also just 30 minutes to the new Tryon International Equestrian Center, site of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, and horseback riding is available near River Landing at

Come stay with us and get away from it all!

About Mary Lynne Dittmar

I'm a 25-year veteran of the space industry, supporting NASA's space exploration and science programs in a variety of roles. Originally from the Midwest (Ohio), I spent my childhood summers in North Carolina. Purchasing this cabin and sharing this beautiful setting with others is a dream come true!

Mary Lynne Dittmar purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Mary Lynne Dittmar chose Rutherfordton

My history with this area goes back to early memories of my mother's descriptions of Lake Lure in the 1920's and 30's. The Rocky Broad River feeds the Lake (about 9 miles away) and is a gorgeous setting for this cabin. The home is warm and inviting and gives me and others an welcome feeling - means a lot to me to be able to share it.

What makes this cabin unique

Head down to the river and watch the water flowing by. Sit in front of a fire in the fire pit, or relax inside at the stone fireplace. My favorite way to start the morning is with breakfast out on the screened-in porch with a view of the river, listening to the birds and watching the squirrels. If you're lucky, you may even see deer or a fox or two.!

Lake Lure river front

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and user friendly. It was our fourth visit to the area so we appreciated the convenient location. The only negative, was a couple of friendly but unleashed dogs nearby.

restful retreat

  • 4 of 5

I spent a month at River Landing. The unit was clean, well equipped and the owner and manager and support personnel were gracious and accommodating. I had to extend my stay because of hurricane Irma impacting my home in Florida and received emotional support and help in extending my stay another week until I could safely return to my home. My only suggestion.

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your property! The cabin was very clean and very well stocked! The river was so peaceful! I thoroughly enjoyed my morning coffee outside by the river! Not far from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock at all, but enough distance to be away from everyone! We look forward to staying again next year!
