Sweetbriar Farms Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A Vacation Dream

Our motorcycle friendly cabin is situated in a gated community on a 2 acre lot and just minutes from Lake Lure. It is located in the quiet Sweetbriar Farms community. Our cabin is a great place to get away from it all for a couple of days or a week. It offers everything you need after a day of sightseeing. Relax on the front screened porch or the back porch with a cup of coffee and a good book, or a glass of wine and the fellowship of good friends. A spacious deck with table chairs and gas grill is available for your use. Serenity Point is decorated in a comfortable and rustic style. The cabin was built for us to enjoy nature in a quiet, friendly community. The turkeys are numerous this year, and almost not a day goes by where we don’t see them on our property.

Just 40+ miles west is Asheville and The Biltmore Estate. Touring the mansion is especially beautiful at Christmas time. The winery offers free tasting and has numerous wines to choose from. Biltmore Village is home to many unique shops. You can also bring your bicycle and ride on the grounds of the estate.

The area has a temperate climate. Enjoy the beauty of dogwoods and redbuds, as well as rhododendron and mountain laurel in the spring. The autumn colors are especially extraordinary.

Lake Lure offers scenic boat tours, golf, horseback riding, biking, fishing and more. Bat Cave and Chimney Rock have many unique shops.

Whatever your reason for coming to Western North Carolina, you will find something to do for everyone, or just pick up some groceries, do nothing and relax.

About Mary M. Barnett

I grew up in Maryland, a place with four seasons. After moving to Florida I missed the cooler weather and the greenery. I always wanted a log cabin, so I decided to give North Carolina a try. I love coming here, especially when the leaves change colors. Each season here offers something different.

Mary M. Barnett purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mary M. Barnett chose Lake Lure

Purchased this property because it was located in a gated community. It made me feel safe when I came here by myself. For many years my family came to this area for a fall vacation. The area has always been special to me. I also love the camaraderie of my neighbors in the community.

What makes this cabin unique

Wonderful community and close to amenities. Sitting on the swing on my back porch I can watch our local wild life. I often see deer, rabbits and an abundance of turkeys. It is extremely relaxing. Even in the summertime the evenings cool down enough to enjoy the outdoors.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came down for a wedding that was cancelled in lieu of a wildfire in the area. Though we were disappointed over the wedding cancellation, the cabin made it feel as if we were still meant to be in Lake Lure this weekend. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

What can I say about this cabin that hasn't already been said? The cabin was not only beautiful, but was absolutely spotless which is very important. It was the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway surrounded by the quiet and relaxing nature. We will definitely be back and hopefully be able to stay for even longer! Thank you for the hospitality, Mary!

We loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came for a few days to get away and slow down a bit. This was the perfect place to do that. Just about everything we needed here other than our clothes and a trip to the grocery store. It felt a ways out from the town of Lake lure but that was fine since we live in the country ourselves so we are used to that. Thank you so much for a great home away from home! We definitely stay here again!

Most memorable memorial weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My freinds and I will never forget our perfect weekend in Mrs. Mary Barnett's lovely cabin. The cabin itself was so clean, spacious and all around just perfect for our getaway. We cooked breakfast every morning, went to the beach and into town (which was a perfect distance from the cabin) and even built a beautiful fire right in the backyard. Not only was the cabin wonderful but Mrs. Barnett was very welcoming, informative and so very lovely to speak with. We can't wait until our next trip! Thank you.

Beautiful serene cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! This home was perfect for our family who was visting the area for a family wedding in Asheville. We had the opportunity to also go horseback riding, golfing and a quick visit to the falls at chimney rock. All of these ammenities were close by and convenient. The only suggestion I have for visitors is to make sure you have a GPS because cell phone service for Verizon and AT&T was not constant through out the Lake Lure area which makes getting around on the back roads a bit of an adventure. Other than the cell phone service, our stay was wonderful!
