About the property

Charming Log Cabin, 2 BR, 1Bath with Lovely Mountain View, WIFI and DVRs

“What a warm and cozy cabin. The porch and view are so beautiful.”

“The cabin was awesome and the attention to detail is terrific.”

'Your home is lovely. We're well-traveled and your place is the most thoughtfully and tastefully decorated place that we've stayed.'

“Wow! What an amazingly beautiful place you have here. Walking in, we immediately felt the stress and tension leave our bodies!”

These are only a few of the many comments left by previous renters through the years. The Bird’s Nest is nestled on a quiet street only minutes away from downtown Lake Lure Beach and Marina and the quaint village of Chimney Rock. Whether sitting by the fire or rocking on the porch admiring the lovely mountain view, the charm of this cabin is undeniable. The family of hummingbirds, wild turkey, and occasionally, the deer, think so too!

This 2 bedroom 1 bath home was decorated with the desire that our guests feel comfortably welcome…and when it is time to leave, refreshed and relaxed!

The cabin has WIFI and 2 DVRs.. The upstairs master bedroom has a king size bed and the downstairs bedroom has a double bed. The cabin sleeps 4. The loveseat in the upstairs loft is a perfect place to relax and read, or you may choose to build a fire downstairs and enjoy the hearth! Wood is provided. Of course, the covered porch is always a favorite, rain or shine. There are plenty of linens and towels and the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. A large Ingles grocery store is only 3 miles down the road.

So, come on in and see for yourself! We would love for you to make yourself at home and stay awhile!

About Bonnie Larson

I retired after a wonderful teaching career of 35 years. Having 2 children, a wonderful family and many friends, 2 dogs, and a cat, I have a full and fulfilling life. In retirement, I still tutor, teach released-time Bible classes to 4th and 5th graders, play golf, read, and enjoy the blessings that God has given me.

Bonnie Larson purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Bonnie Larson chose Lake Lure

I rented this property from its owner when I came to Lake Lure for a weekend vacation. Immediately, I fell in love with the cabin, its potential and the beautiful Lake Lure area. The owner agreed to sell and now I can claim this charming cabin as my own!

What makes this cabin unique

The covered porch and its lovely view was immediately a favorite place to sit, drink coffee, read, or have long chats. And, I am so pleased to have a wood burning fireplace! Is there anything better than to have a cozy evening by the fire? It brings me such enjoyment to come to the cabin and stay when I can. Also, I derive such pleasure in renting it out for others to come and find peace, relaxation, and joy in all God has created!

Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The Birds Nest was a wonderful choice for the Lake Lure area, it was really comfortable, cozy, and very clean. For a small cabin it felt very spacious. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and we would definitely choose this cabin again when we are back in the Lake Lure area.

Cute & cozy

  • 5 of 5

Clean & very comfortable! And it is very pet friendly! If we bring our pets, we always bring their beds/blankets so hair doesn't get everywhere. This place has a basket with extra blankets for yours pets. Made me feel at ease with my pets. We truly enjoyed our stay!

Perfect stay - perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Weather was great during our 3 day - 2 night stay ... there was still some fall colors left, too. Cabin/property is in excellent shape and had all the amenities; very quiet and comfortable. Larger than the interior photos suggest!

Cozy & scenic paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Bird’s nest was like staying in paradise it it’s anazing scenery of mountains and just across the street a grand view of Lake Lure with mountains as a backdrop! The cabin is very cozy and beautifully decorated, conveniently located and well supplied. The birds, squirrels and chipmunks were welcome visitors while we watched from the porch. God’s beautiful creations are a sight to behold in this quaint town! Definitely worth a return visit!!!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Bird’s Nest was absolutely wonderful. Bonnie’s house is stunning and in a great location. The little things are what made our stay so special. The house is equipped with anything that you could possibly need or want. Utensils, pots and pans, a grill on the deck with beautiful mountain views. She has provided all of the necessities. There was even dry firewood for use in the huge fireplace. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, so much so that it was hard to make ourselves crawl out in the mornings. It was so nice to find such a lovely place that is pet friendly. I can’t find enough great things to say about the Bird’s Nest. I highly recommend and cannot wait to go back. Thank you Bonnie!

The Bird's Nest is located amidst the beautiful mountains of the Hickory Nut Gorge. The views throughout the area are spectacular. National Geographic once voted Lake Lure as one of the 10 most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. Whether climbing Chimney Rock (or taking the elevator up!), or going on the affordable Lake Lure Scenic Boat Tour, you will not be disappointed with the beauty of the area.
