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.

Stayed for a long sister's weekend getaway at this cozy cabin. We had an amazing time! Cabin had everything we needed for our stay. Super quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be back!
Peace and Quiet
This was a perfect place for my family of three to relax and get away from it all. The front porch was my favorite place to read and watch the deer below. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We never heard any noise except the birds and the wind in the trees. The lake on the Riverbend property was wonderful for swimming without having to drive to Lake Lure. The two restaurants which Irene recommended served lovely food for dinner. We would definitely recommend Rabbit's Place for a restful vacation.
My family and I stayed from July 1-5. We went up to celebrate my daughter turning 12 on July 4th. It was a lovely place to stay. We had a great time taking walks and enjoying the mountain. The home had everything one could need while vacationing. We loved the rocking chairs on the back porch!
looking forward to returning
We had a great time at Rabbits Retreat. There was plenty of space for my wife and me, plus our 9 year old and her best friend. The house has a Jack and Jill bathroom, which gave everyone their own privacy and personal space.The kitchen has plenty of utensils, and equipment; I did take my own pan and a couple of knives(my wife likes my cooking). The internet was uninterrupted and strong enough to stream TV. The air blew cold and the water ran hot.
The neighbourhood is quiet, we saw a small deer, and the girls saved a turtle crossing the road. There is also a lake with a small beach which we used everyday. There is an Ingles a couple of miles away, and you are convenient to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and out door activities(hiking, swimming, kayaking, zip lines, horse back riding)
On the down side the drive up to the house on the gravel roads does take a little getting used. And the bed was very firm. But that aside we had a fantastic trip, and Irene's info was super helpful.
You were great guests and it was a pleasure to have you stay at Rabbit's Retreat.
Loved the area and owner was SUPER nice!!
Enjoyed our stay here very much. Loved the gated community and easy access to local businesses. The view from the porch was beyond believable. Had deer come through almost every day!! Owner was very accommodating and SUPER nice. Will definitely be returning for a future visit!!
Great Cabin- Very Tranquil and great for a family gathering
We rented this cabin for two nights and found it to be very clean and nicely furnished. It easily accommodated five people comfortably. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. The views were wonderful!!! It was extremely peaceful and quiet. Irene was very helpful. She communicated extremely well. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a very nice “get away” at a great price!
