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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I feel refreshed and renewed in just six days at your peaceful mountain cottage. I don’t know if it was the mountain air or the peace and quiet, but I haven’t slept this well in years! We loved sitting on the deck with woods all around and even doing our yoga out there. We got lots of exercise hiking out to the falls in Chimney Rock Park and climbing up all 400+ steps up Chimney Rock. It was well worth it – such beautiful sights at the top. We loved the simple pleasures of swimming and kayaking in the lake as well. Biltmore of course was not to be missed, and the wine tasting at their private winery capped off our perfect week. Oh, I forgot to mention our trip to Asheville early in the week. We found a great organic food store, Green Life Grocery (although we were happy to see that the local Ingles also had plenty of organic foods). We visited some wonderful art galleries on Biltmore Avenue in Asheville. Your home was so well equipped and comfortable. Thanks for all the special touches.

Great Cabin- Very Tranquil and great for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

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!

Peaceful indeed! Loved Rabbit's Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very nice.. huge porch on the back to watch the sunset after a great day of hiking, sightseeing etc. We were out early to enjoy God's beauty! We timed the leaf changes... and weather beautifully... Definitely would return here. If there was 1 improvement I would suggest TV... would have been nice to watch local news and weather.

Still, was a 10 to me.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

Everything we could have asked for and more. Very clean and spacious. Located near a grocery store, but up the mountain so you feel far far away. Swimming hole and fishing very close in this gated community. I took my 10 year old son and his best friend, they can't wait to return. Irene was very gracious and stayed in contact with me to make sure everything was going ok. Will recommend to friends and family !

We really enjoyed our time at Rabbits,

  • 5 of 5

The property is an ideal place for us, peaceful, it meets our expectations for a family vacation where we can share time together and appreciate the wonder nature offers in this place. This was our second time spending time at Rabbits, the place was clean and had the necessary amenities and overall is a real comfort to feel like been at home.
