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 guests 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!

                                                        We had a wonderful 2 days at the birds nest cabin. We come to the area often and try to stay different places. This is definitely in our top 3. Thanks for a relaxing getaway.

                                                        Beautiful, quiet, and close to everything!

                                                        Melissa S.

                                                        Beautiful cabin, warm, cozy, and lovely fireplace. Short drives to all attractions at lake lure and Chimney Rock. Cannot recommend this place enough.

                                                        Beautiful place for a quick getaway!

                                                        Rebecca S.Durham, NC

                                                        Bonnie’s cabin was delightful! Our family of 3 was very comfortable there, as well as our 2 dogs. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed using the fireplace. We are also bird lovers, so it was great to watch birds feeding in the morning on the filled feeders on the deck. The location was very convenient to Chimney Rock and other points s of interest to the west. We would definitely stay here again!

                                                        Perfect place for relaxing and outdoor adventures

                                                        ashley h.

                                                        We absolutely loved our stay at the birds nest. The cabin was homey and comfortable and had everything we were looking for. It’s very close to chimney rock state park and chimney rock village, but far enough away to feel like we were ‘getting away from it all’. We travel with two German Shepherds and it was so nice to be in a place where we knew they were welcome as well.

                                                        The porch was so nice to sit on in the morning while having coffee and the fireplace was cozy at night. The bed was very comfortable. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and will stay here again when we come back to Lake Lure!

                                                        I am so glad you came, Ashley! Thank you for writing. Would love to have you all and your 2 special buddies back with us!

                                                        The perfect getaway!

                                                        Sarah H.

                                                        I recently stayed here with my parents and their two dogs. We stayed for two nights but left wishing we had stayed longer. The cabin is adorable and the surrounding area is beautiful. This was our first time visiting Lake Lure and will definitely not be our last. It was really nice to have a fireplace as it was freezing cold when we were there. It even snowed, which made the experience all the more special for this family of Floridians. Our host was very kind during our email correspondence and was quick to answer any questions we had. We loved our stay and plan to book this cute cabin again. Can't wait to go back!

                                                        Not a house, but a HOME!

                                                        Annette G.

                                                        This cabin was perfect.............not a house, but a HOME! Thank you for sharing this place with us. We will definitely rent it again if we are ever fortunate enough to return to this area.

                                                        Thank you, Annette. That was our desire to make it a home away from home! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time and if you are ever back in the area, I would be delighted for you to visit us again!


                                                        Lake Lure, NC, USA

                                                        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.
