About the property

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 Lexington

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!

Quaint and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin on the lake had everything we needed for a stay in the area to see our new grandson! The dock was nice at sunset and the kitchen had everything we needed. Thanks!

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 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.

Owner's Response: Well - I did my very best to please the guest. I also do my very best to advertise and describe the property as is. The 5 people that visited after Celia loved the property. I invest in my property every year to upgrade and enhance things, but at the end of the day, it will always be a rustic cabin in the woods. I have also taken pictures to show the steps down to the dock. It does me no good to hide the steps. Like most lake houses at HRL, there are lots of steps down to the deck. I do have a handrail. Best of luck in your future travels.
