About the property

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 Sweetbriar Farms

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.

Owner's Response: Dear kat, Thank you for the lovely review. I make every effort to let the housekeeper know I have high standards when it comes to cleanliness. I want my guest to relax and feel at home. Also as you said the yard is a great place for the children to explore and the older ones to get into the Creek area hoping to catch a fish.or to explore into the wooded area. I hope you will keep me in mind for future getaways. Sincerely. Mary.

This cabin was the perfect choice for our weekend trip! Mary truly has a piece of Appalachain Heaven. The house was exceptionally clean, very inviting and was stocked with all pots, pans and utensils for our cooking needs. The front and back screened in porch made for great early morning and late evening sitting. The fire pit was an excellent feature! Although several other cabins are close by, you would never know. It felt like we were the only ones on the side of the mountian. Location is perfect! Easily accessible from I-40 and close to a number of great state parks for hiking and seeing waterfalls and towns for shopping and dining. This is my new go to place to enjoy a weekend in the mountains! If you are considering this cabin...look no further. Thanks for sharing this one Mary! After staying here, we have decided to make this an annual trip!
