About Hayes Hyman

I grew up vacationing in the NC mountains. I built this home to share my love of the mountains and nature with my children. From the coast to the mountains, and everything in between, NC has so much to offer. We built this house on the best lot I could find at the top of a mountain, and the primary purpose was to create the most incredible views of the mountains for the best porch-sitting ever. And then we furnished it as a true second home with the finest mountain decor. We hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of the mountains as much as we do in our lovely home!

Hayes Hyman purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Hayes Hyman chose Lake Lure

We had this home built as a second home because we love the mountains and the view. Day trips to the Biltmore House are always a big hit. The quaint mountain shops offer unique shopping experiences, and we love the awesome mountain golf courses nearby. This home is perched at the top of a mountain in a secluded location with incredible long range views, but yet it offers all the charming mountain decor and amenities required by our family. This location allows us to have a secluded luxurious home on the top of a mountain, yet all within a 30 minute drive from the golf courses, restaurants, grocery stores, shops, lake activities and much more. It's the perfect location.

What makes this cabin unique

You can enjoy the spectacular mountain view from every room in the house. The secluded location provides a tranquil privacy. You'll love the sounds and views of the mountains. Located at the top of a mountain, you are well above the city lights and far enough from the town to enjoy the secluded privacy, yet close enough to go shopping or enjoy day trips to places like the Biltmore House in Asheville or historic Black Mountain. We invite you to bring your friends along and enjoy a fun filled night in the family room while watching movies on the 'big screen' TV, playing games, or a challenging game of billiards or ping-pong.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Let us start by saying "Thank You" for letting us stay at your remarkable cabin with spectacular views. Everything was clean and neat and very well-stocked from the kitchen to the bedrooms and linens. We had a very nice family vacation! While we were there, our oldest son got engaged, so this is a trip that will last in our memories forever. The drive up the mountain was a fun adventure and not nearly as bad as some were saying, and DEFINITELY worth the drive. Thank you so much, and we look forward to coming again! It truly is "CAROLINA HEAVEN!

Secluded Mountain Cabin with Incredible Long Range Views

Amazing views and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

While it was too cold to spend much time on the huge deck enjoying the views, rocking chairs in the family room in front of the large windows made for a perfect alternative. Lots of comfortable seating and bedding and the kitchen had everything we needed

Hayes was easy to deal with and the cabin had all that's needed for a nice getaway.

Our group of 10 is ready to go back.

Perfect cabin and view!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is even more beautiful in person than the pictures show! We were in awe of the view all day everyday and the house was perfect for our large extended family.

Breathtaking views, beautiful cabin, and total privacy. My only question is how did they get the logs up the mountain to build the cabin?

Carolina Heaven is indeed Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our recent family retreat to Lake Lure was fantastic. Carolina Heaven is a beautifully appointed cabin on the side of a mountain with breathtaking views. From the sunrises to the sunsets and the mountains in between we weren't ever disappointed. The cabin was extremely comfortable and we could tell the owner, Hayes, took pride in building and decorating it. We had 15 people and were never cramped for space. From the homey bedrooms and relaxing great room to the game room and huge deck we felt right at home. The road up to the cabin was very scary the first time but it was so worth it when we arrived and saw the magnificent view. Definitely follow the directions supplied and do not rely on GPS like we did. Our trip up was crazy and we were in a F150. After "finding" the other way up it really wasn't a problem. I would not recommend a car with low clearance as you will definitely bottom out. We had one family member who couldn't make it up the mountain and had to leave her car in town. We always made sure we were up the mountain before dark as there were no lights and the road was very narrow with hairpin turns. The owner Hayes was very helpful and very quick to respond to our questions and concerns. We loved our vacation and believe you will too.

Owner's Response: Leslie and Jose, Thank you for those kind words. So glad you and your families from the top to the bottom of the east coast could meet half way and enjoy the NC mountains. I built this house in that spot to capture those incredible views. The ride up the mountain is a fun adventure, and the destination makes it all worth it. Please come back again and it will be even better next time.... I promise. Hayes
