Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

"Wow! You have great views from every room !"

-direct quote from our first honorary guest Ken

Thus, our log home found its name... "Mountain View"

Come ready for action or relaxation as the spirit moves you! Our "Mountain View" Cabin located in Laurel Lakes community at Lake Lure has it all. Rest and soak in the spectacular mountain views and enjoy our three acres of forested and open areas. This brand new (Jan. 2007) custom log home has over 2300 square feet of heated/air conditioned space with mountain views from nearly every room! It comfortably accommodates eight to ten guests with three enclosed bedrooms, a separate loft area with sleeper couch, and finished playroom basement with sleeper sofa.

Early risers will relish the stunning sunrise from the back balcony. Then, plan your activities for each day: explore our "Mountain View’s" natural forest and our cleared areas designed for archery, BB-gun practice, or paint ball. Hike around our community or bicycle along our paved roads. Or drive 15 minutes and marvel at the scenic view of breath-taking Lake Lure with its fun-filled water park/beach, boat rentals, varied restaurants, and quaint town of Chimney Rock. Without a doubt, you MUST visit majestic Chimney Rock Park and hike along the heady Sky-line Trail featured in the film Last of the Mohicans. Later, treat yourself and sign up for an evening boat cruise of idyllic Lake Lure. Or, for more active pursuits, visit nearby golf courses.

As each day unfolds, swim or fish in our own private lake in Laurel Lakes community . To have a truly memorable trip, you must tube down the Broad River. Come back and kickback with "Mountain View’s" game room with air hockey, foosball table and electronic dart board. Or play board games in the loft on a hand made checker board table with pine-hewn stools.

Another favorite activity is to relax and enjoy the afternoon sunset with rockers and barstools on the front porch for Happy Hour Views of Chimney Rock. After preparing dinner in our fully stocked kitchen (complete with spices), make your way down to the backyard fire pit area. Use the cut logs provided and gather kindling to build a safe fire. Or in cool weather, take it easy and light up the easy gas fireplace with its remote.

As you can see there are many choices! And isn't that what makes a great vacation in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains?


Spectacular 360-view from porches and balcony with Chimney Rock view from front porch. Every room has an ideal view; thus its name!

Pine furniture with rooms decorated in bear, moose, and fish themes

Over 2300 square feet of beautifully decorated heated and air conditioned living areas. Over-sized playroom with electronic dart board, ping pong table and foosball table. One-car garage in basement with utility sink.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our days at your "Mountain View " Log Home. It was so Peaceful just setting on the deck and overlooking the mountains. No traffic, just a beautiful view and bright sun shine. Close enough to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure to enjoy the activities.

Beautiful. View a lot to do near by

  • 5 of 5

The place was so nice and quiet during the night. They are having some repairs done to the outside, gutters were being installed but we did a day out adventure and they were gone when we got home. There was scaffolding and boards around so people with small children may need to know. This did not bother our family. The cabin was fully equipped for having meals there. Would definitely pick this lovely cabin to stay at again to enjoy the rest of the activities that are less than an hour away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed our cabin. We had construction done to extend our roof over the back deck. The scaffolding has been removed. We look forward to your return visit.

This is our 3rd year staying in this cabin. We won't stay anywhere else. The owner is wonderful and the cabin just gets better and better every year. The pictures don't do it justice!

Just a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful, clean, and well equipped. I spent hours on the deck looking at the view. It is just lovely there, and the interior is spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood around the cabin felt safe, and with the tree line it provided almost total privacy. I would definitely stay there again.

Lovely quiet log home

  • 5 of 5

We stay at 2-3 VRBO's every year. This was one of the nicest homes we've rented. The kitchen was well stocked with most everything we needed. Loved the quiet Bosch dishwasher. Wished the main floor tv was a little bigger. The extra high bathroom sinks were a little odd but steps were provided. Enjoyed the nice deck.

Fabulous cabin - great location!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family vacation. The cabin is well appointed. We especially enjoyed playing ping pong. It was a great way to tire a 4 year old out by having her chase after the ball! The decorating throughout the cabin was more extensive than most rentals I've stayed in.

The location was great. The neighborhood is very quiet and lovely. It was close enough to Lake Lure beach as well as Rumbling Bald. We enjoyed a private boat tour on Lake Lure (which was well worth the small upcharge versus the typical pontoon boat tour). Dinner at Larkins was wonderful, as always! Everyone loved the Flowering Bridge (near the visitors center) which is "free", but please consider a donation as this garden is maintained by volunteers who graciously give of their time and talent for all to enjoy! Unfortunately, the elevator up to Chimney Rock wasn't operating; major disappointment! Visits to the Biltmore House and Sierra Nevada were both a hit. The mini putt putt course in Chimney Rock was a lot of fun with a beautiful setting.

John was responsive to questions prior to our stay. We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this rental. I have stayed at several Lake Lure rentals. John's cabin is, by far, the best as far as value, location and amenities.

The only drawback was the construction materials in the driveway and deck. As we had a small child with us, we didn't want to risk her getting a nail in her foot or tripping on construction materials. We couldn't use the back deck which was a disappointment as it gets plenty of shade in the afternoon.
