Overview

About the property

Come Relax by the Fireplace

Great 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath cabin with relaxing screened in porch. Sit

and listen to the wonderful sounds of nature. Furnished with a fully

stocked kitchen ready to cook in, BBQ Grill, gas log fireplace

(seasonal), Cable TV, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, microwave,

hair dryer, iron and iron board and deck furniture. The bathroom

includes a shower with a separate tub for relaxation and a large

closet area. A washer and dryer are also provided for your

convenience.

Please Note: Our cabin is only for responsible adults and

families. There will be absolutely NO HOUSE PARTIES.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we no longer allow pets.

Here is the breakdown of sleeping arrangements:

Living Room:

1 Futon -

1 Sleeper Sofa

Bedroom (on a second level)

1 Queen Bed - Sleeps 2 adults

The cabin is directly on High Rock Lake with a waterfront pier. There are stairs down to the water.

There is a half bath downstairs for your convenience.

Our cabin is a rustic lake cabin in the woods. It is a great cabin for grilling burgers, snuggling on the sofa, and watching a movie during a thunderstorm. However, it will not be fancy.

It will be cozy, and quaint, but it will not be fancy.

There will be crickets chirping, leaves crunching under your feet, and the glorious smell of the crisp fresh air, but it will not be fancy.

We provide complimentary sheets and towels for your use. They will be available in the upstairs closet. We do ask that you wash these prior to your departure, so if time is an issue on your last day, please plan to bring your own. If you prefer anything that “counts thread” you may want to think about bringing your own. (These are also not fancy)

We are always open to feedback on how to improve our rustic cabin in the woods, and are constantly making improvements to keep it comfy and cozy for your stay.

Why Cara Dowling chose North Carolina

This property stole our hearts the second we saw it. We just had to have it. We love coming here ourselves and feel instantly relaxed the second we pull in the driveway!

What makes this cabin unique

Private and tranquil with the comforts of home and the ability to stay connected if you choose!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Less than rustic

  • 1 of 5

The cabin (old log house) was really rustic. If you have issues with steps, then this is not for you. Pictures don't show even half of the steps to dock. Dock was nice. Home needs a lot of work, but "it could be" a nice place. Cara (owner) was very easy to work with and gave us a refund because we couldn't stay there. Not a place for young kids (no yard). I would think that it would be fine for fishermen although there is no place to store or put in boat. We apparently were there at the wrong time to catch fish. The porch would have been nice if the screens were fixed and the lights and fan worked. View was decent. Description said not fancy...so be prepared. It was located close to Lexington right of 85 and hwy 64. There were good places to eat like Christo's and the Cracker Barrel, however I wouldn't plan on cooking. Yard is steep and not fenced in, so I wouldn't take my dog...just saying. I do like Homeaway or VRBO to book reservations. Also learned that reviews are not necessarily accurate. Might try Badin or Tillery Lake next time. Like I said, the owner was very understanding and good to deal with. Also think that a thorough cleaning and some well deserved maintenance would improve property immensely.

Relaxing weekend!!!

  • 4 of 5

The inside of the cabin was very nice and well furnished, the only thing we needed to bring was our personal items. Internet was not good. We plan to rent again.

House was exactly as advertised!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the knotty and nice cabin. It was just what we expected; a comfy cabin with convenient lake access and relaxing scenery. Nice quiet area with nearby shopping and restaurants. I really loved the screened in porch and the chair swing overlooking the lake! There was also a great spot to hang a hammock. We had a great time!

Rustic and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here and we had a great time. We went to catch fish and they were abundant. We like the fact that this cabin is small, secluded and yet very comfortable. We will most definitely book this rental again
