Overview

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 2 cats, 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 Blue Ridge Mountains

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!

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.

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.

The cabin is beautiful and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and quiet. The view from the front porch is majestic and breathtaking to look at. It is pretty close to chimney rock, which we climbed, and many restaurants. Lake lure is right around the corner and there is plenty to do around the cabin. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a weekend getaway!

Cozy and relaxing

We loved our stay at the Bird's Nest! The cabin is decorated nicely, very clean and well taken care of. The owner is super friendly and accommodating. Lake Lure is beautiful! Plenty to do in the area and the Bird's Nest is conveniently located very close to Chimney Rock. We're looking forward to our next visit!
