About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our cottage is located in a gated community near Lake Lure, North Carolina. This is the beautiful area where movies like, DIRTY DANCING, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, FIRE STARTER, and others were filmed.

We want to welcome you to our place where you slow down your pace and enjoy nature in a peaceful setting. You can sit on the deck and enjoy a cup of coffee or take a swim in one of two private lakes,or walk along a trail within the community.

There are picnic areas with tables and charcoal grills that you may enjoy with waterfalls and trout streams just a few feet away. Breathe the clean mountain air, smell the sweet smoke from the chimneys and camp fires, Ahh yes. Deer and Wild Turkey live in harmony within our secluded community.

Although the cottage seems remote, it is within a mile from a public library with internet access, Police and Fire Rescue Services, a community store, and a gas station.We are also proud of the new INGLES SUPER MARKET with Deli, Pharmacy, and Gas Pumps. This is a super clean store that is second to none and the employees are friendly. This store is about five minutes from the entrance of our community.

This is a recently built house with 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths and will accommodate 4 to 6 people comfortably. We have a full kitchen with all new appliances. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom and 2 twin beds in the second bedroom. There is a convertible bed in the living room.

A few of the area attractions include tours of the Biltmore House in Asheville, the Beach at Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Park & Village, several golf courses, hiking,and fishing (with fishing license,available at Lake Lure). Also boat rides and rentals are available at Lake Lure. Enjoy thrilling white water rafting, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Gem mining,Horseback Riding, and many, many more fun things to do.

Our guests tell us that they don't want to leave. We are happy to see previous guests return to Rabbits Retreat, and we show it by offering discounts. Thank you for choosing Rabbits Retreat in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
