About Bob

I have always loved log cabins. I lived in my first log cabin in Montana in 1972. There was no heat, nor running water. Except for the wood cook stove and the stream that ran past the cabin. My dog used to wake me in the mornings, in the winter, because his water bowl was frozen over,,,in the cabin.

We bought our first log cabin in Chimney Rock in 1993. It was a one room, 450 square foot cute little place with no heat nor air conditioning. I have loved this area for many years and have always thought about the cabins on Grey Log Cove and thought how much fun it would be to have a cabin there. Well, as sometimes dreams do come true...I bought a lot there in 2012 and the dream of having a cabin there is finally coming together. I think this is one of the nicest log homes, on definitely the nicest cove on the Lake Lure.

Bob purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Bob chose Lake Lure

This is a very unique piece of property. It is right on the lake, on one of the nicest private coves on Lake Lure. You and your guests can take the canoe or kayaks out onto the cove for a nice peaceful paddle without having to get out onto the traffic of the Lake. Or if you choose, there are 8 restaurants, with nice bars, on the lake that you can canoe or kayak to. You can sunbath on the 32' long dock or the large wrap around deck.

Staying at 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove' is an experience that you won't soon forget.

There is also a full basement with it's own Bath and shower, as well as a LIVING ROOM, WITH FRIDGE, FLAT SCREEN TV, POOL TABLE, FOOS BALL TABLE, AIR HOCKEY TABLE, PING PONG TABLE, AND BEAN BAG TOSS.

What makes this cabin unique

In building 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove' I wanted to add some of the flavor of the West and the time I spent living in Montana near Yellowstone National Park, as well as some of the influences of my years living in Santa Fe New Mexico. This cabin is be like nothing some people have ever seen before. I wanted to keep with a 'Lodge' theme and I think it has come together pretty well.

One of the things I am most proud of is my Housekeeping staff. They are the best around. Also provided are on-site massage and baby sitting with advanced notice.

Breakfast is also provided. So don't rush out for something to eat on your first morning here. Relax, have some COFFEE and ORANGE JUICE on the deck while the HAM AND EGGS are cooking on the stove. Then taste some of my Housekeepers fresh homemade JAM, on an ENGLISH MUFFINS. Made Exclusively for the Guests of the 'Lodge on Grey Log Cove'. Also provided is free popcorn and a variety of DVD movies and a new 42' flat screen TV for your at home evening entertainment.

Also provided with the cabin's key is an 'Ingles Advantage' card. For discounts at the local grocery store. So they'll treat you like a local.

I know there are lots of places to stay on Lake Lure, but I wanted to provide more of an 'experience' to your vacation than just a place to spend the night. I've tried to add some simple 'extras' and things that you don't get at a regular 'canoe paddle on the wall' type of rental unit.This is a new log cabin, that was completed in the spring of 2014. It is a one of a kind, custom log cabin, with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, ceiling fans in every room, large closets, and many other custom features.

Also for your enjoyment is a full basement, with a Ping Pong table, Pool Table/Air Hockey Table, Foosball Table, Bean Bag Toss, Flat Screen TV, Refrigerator, and a Private Bath. Also many comfortable chairs and couches.

Treat yourself. Stay at 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove'. You're worth it

Guestbook comments from the owner


Your cabin is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! We enjoyed our stay; however it was not long enough, but it never is. Mark & I will definitely be back. Thank you for all your help. We gave out a lot of your business cards. There were quite a few people from our group who were definitely interested in the cabin.

PS: Hillary ( the housekeeper) is very nice & helpful.

This house is perfect for a family spring break at Lure Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house was refurbished beautifully! The log cabin feel is complimented with lots if room and enough modernity to make life easy. Our sons absolutely loved the kanoes. Lure Lake is gorgeous and the nearby shops, trails and scenery made this a great family vacation.

9 Days out of Time

  • 5 of 5

Had a most amazing experience!! The cabin is just so beautiful and peaceful. The people are amazing and the food is amazing everywhere you go. Bob is a generous soul and allowed us to stay another night when we got stuck because of the storm. Good people he is!! Hillary is also a jewel so you could not ask for a better spot to be.

Property was great!

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean and unique. There were a lot of great touches such as breakfast in fridge at arrival, amazing woodwork, canoe, kayaks, fishing poles, ping pong, foosball. The finished basement was a nice and cool place to hang out during the heatwave. The property itself is 5 stars but I only gave 4 because the house is quite close to the road and there was road noise when the traffic is heavy (morning there were large trucks) and it's one house from the end of a cove that contains houses that are not nearly as nice as this one. Overall, it is a really nice, clean, fun property to stay in and contains everything you need to enjoy the lake. 4 1/2 stars

Nice place to kick back and relax

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is really nice on a nice cove on lake lure. If you want to just kick back and do nothing it's a great place to be. The only think that would have made it better would have been a tv in the main bedroom instead of the the basement.

Great House, Great Owner, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week in Lake Lure staying at this wonderful cabin. Great location for exploring Chimney Rock, Asheville, Pisgah Forest, and all of the activities around Lake Lure. House was perfect for our family. And Bob, the owner of the house, is an awesome host. He does so many little things in the house to make it really feel like a Bed and Breakfast. And he was so responsive and helpful from the time that we reserved the cabin until the time that we left. The dock, canoes, kayaks, and floats were perfect for our two kids. Loved Lake Lure and we really enjoyed this perfect cabin for our vacation.

Accommodating and courteous

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so clean and accommodated our family perfectly. We swam and paddled all day in the rain and had the best time. At night we put the kids to be bed and played table tennis and cards. Hillary was so friendly and ensured we had everything we needed. Bob was accommodating and very helpful. Thank you both so much for your hospitality and we will absolutely be coming back to lake lure and will not be renting from anyone else.
