About the Property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6--if 2 are children)(Sleeps 4 adults)

If it's a water experience that you are looking for, this is it! The perfect vacation spot for the family. There is something for everyone - there is a shallow area for the little ones to play and deep water for swimming and floating. There is a floating dock to play on. We have 2 sea otter kayaks, a canoe, and pontoon paddleboat for you to explore the lake. The cabin is at the head of the cove. There is a 125 foot dock crossing the lake. There is an bonfire area with benches and of course, fishing. The clarity of Lake Lure has earned it a high rating for bass fishing.
Nestled among the native rhododendrons and dogwoods of the Appalachian Mountains sets this unique little cabin. Built in the early 1970’s, it is one of the older quaint lakefront homes on Lake Lure. It is truly an exceptional find in that it is set on a 14-acres at the head of Sunset Cove. Also, it is built partially out over the water, which allows an unobstructed view from the porch directly down the cove to the main channel, Chimney Rock, and most importantly the sun setting over the mountains. It is one of the finest views on the lake.

Let us take you back to the earlier, unhurried days of Lake Lure and Hickory Nut Gorge area. Leave the busy life behind and return to the days of real relaxation and rest. You can lounge on the deck in the warm summer sun reading a good book, fish from the dock as the water licks at your feet, swim in the cool refreshing water, go kayaking down the cove, or just sit and watch the sun sparkle and move across the water and then sink behind the mountains.

In its own right, our cabin and dock/bridge are famous - if you're a movie buff. In 1983, several scenes from the movie, Firestarter, were filmed on the property. The most memorable being when Charlie and her dad were captured by 'the Shop' while crossing our very own dock. The film featured an all-star cast with Drew Berrymore, Martin Sheen, & George C. Scott.

The dock/bridge mentioned above extends all the way across the end of the cove(approx. 100 feet)and is truly unique. The entire bridge is ideal for the fishing enthusiast. For your enjoyment, we have 2 Sea Otter kayaks are on hand as well as a canoe, and 12 ft pontoon paddle boat - all ready to explore Sunset Cove and Lake Lure. Life jackets are on hand as well.

We invite you to come and enjoy your own private get-a-way at Papa Bob’s Cabin. It is a one-room cabin with a large private bathroom/changing area. You will find a queen bed and a queen size sleeper sofa. There is a loft with two twin beds. Appliances include a full size refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and coffee maker. There is central heat and air and a Weber grill. So, bring a good book, your swimsuit, your fishing pole and come relax.

*******DUE TO TOWN REGULATIONS WE CAN ALLOW 4 adults OR 2 adults & 4 CHILDREN********

PONTOON BOAT AVAILABLE: We have a 1999 Voyager 21' pontoon boat available at your option to rent with our home! It has a 90 hp 4 stroke engine. The pontoon rental is $195/day with a 3 day minimum in. The following rates are with taxes and fees included:
offseason weekend rate $365 (Fri-Sun)
long weekend rate $570 (Fri-Mon or Thur-Sun)
weekly rate is $1275.
It is a great way to get see the lake and surrounding area; go for a sunset cruise, go to Bayfront Grille by boat for lunch or dinner.
*****PLEASE NOTE:
In 2006, Lake Lure has passed a regulation that makes it unlawful for boats with commercial licenses (i.e.our boat) to tow skiers or tubes, etc behind the boat.**************

By the way, the cabin's property adjoins 'Ledfords Landing' which is VRBO listing # 28758. Combine the properties if you are looking for a large extended area for a family reunion or gathering (together sleeps 14-16). The large grass field on the cabin's property is ideal for games and gatherings. There is a volleyball net and whiffle balls and bat you are welcome to use but we suggest you bring your own glove. Whiffle ball with the kids is one of our favorites!
