About the Property

Adorable - Cabin Apartment lakeside with Mountain View and lake view in winter

Unique setting in the Western North Carolina mountains. Situated on a lake, this one bedroom apartment offers nature, lake fishing , canoeing, swimming and loads of hiking and new age events close to the Asheville area. Come out to your screen porch for coffee and observe deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, and squirrels during the morning as well as the sound of the morning birds. In the evening the sound of crickets, frogs, and cicadas. . If the season is right the morning and evening call of the whipporrwill. Occasional black Bear and bobcat
It is a perfect apartment size for 2. Maybe an occasional guest or 4 if for a night or two. Parking for 2 cars only. There is a stove, full fridge and whatever you may need to create some great meals, full bath/shower and one bedroom with Queen bed , living room has a daybed, sofabed and linens. Wi Fi plus a smart TV equipped with an AppleTv allows streaming with netflix and pandora account…plus a DVD player and VHS player and a basket full of movies, board games, outside seating and campfire. Re Campfire : Please keep it low , and have hose ready and use the firepit cover. Prior permission from owner as they are not allowed during droughts. Neighborhood is very strict with large campfires that are not attended or safe. No motorcycles allowed in the Resort, full use of the private beach. NO PETS or over 4 allowed in the unit.

The area offers a place of stillness, serenity and peace. Inside the gated community of Lake Lure Village Resort, you will find some nice meditation and hiking opportunities. Trails, waterfall and places to sit near the lake will bring you back into nature.
You will want to return each year….as I find it a place of 'retreat'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I live in the paradise of this cabin in the woods, in nature , surrounded by mountains and water. And the other part of the year I live at the Ocean. I have a beach condo. So feeling truly abundant and grateful. I love to travel and visit Asia , and South America whenever possible. I study Yoga, Buddhism and Healing Arts….I believe in the religion of love and by observing nature we can learn. I am curious and love life. Love to create beautiful spaces and enjoy helping others…..I hope you enjoy the space I created with this mountain get away. I hope to keep it fresh and inviting - and hope you will return again and again. :)

Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure, NC, USA:
Its hidden away from the world, but yet close enough to enter back in when you want. Come 'retreat' into the natural world. Get away from it all. You can only hear the sound of birds in the morning. Whipporwill, Hawk, Crow , never mind all the other songbirds…Bald Eagle spotted over the lake, White and Blue heron,Wild Turkeys in the yard. Bobcat was chasing one , one morning. Occasional Black Bear comes down from the mountain. Deer frequently in the yard every morning. Hummingbirds, butterflies, fireflies……it goes on….just magnificent to watch the stars at night and the moon and sun in the sky….:) I have mountain views and lake view in the winter. Open land behind the fire pit with hiking trails that lead to unbelievable views from the top of the rock face. Chimney Rock State Park is my neighbor.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Relax and renew :) Come back to yourself. Observe nature from the screen porch ,this location offers a nice retreat away. Equipped with a small outside weber grill ,central air, new smart tv where you may stream Pandora , Netflix or basic channels with Apple TV. No cable or dish, but Itunes, You tube , Netflix with an account. It has a small eat in kitchen with a mini stove, full fridge and small sink. Its perfect for 2-4 guests with an extra log double bed in the recreational room and a Daybed on the porch. Located in a gated community on the hardwood and tile floors, and U-verse internet which is pretty consistent and has good signal except for occasional storms . Att &T and Verizon towers nearby and WiFi for the most part
