This original Lake Lure cabin was built in the 1950's. We purchased the property in December of 2014 and have been renovating and updating this charming cabin. An open living room, kitchen, and dining area gives your family the perfect hang out space after a day on the water. The home has three bedrooms and two baths with a king in master, queen in second bedroom, and two twins/double bed in the third bedroom.

Many homes in Lake Lure have countless stairs to the home and/or the water. This cabin is mere steps from the water and is perfect for families with children or older family members. Reserve today and enjoy the beautiful view this summer!

About Courtney Youngblood

We are both from Georgia, but have lived in the North Carolina mountains for more than ten years. It has been a dream of ours to have a lakefront home on this stunning mountain lake since we first visited years ago. We have rented lake homes on Lake Lure for years and finally decided to make our favorite vacation spot more permanent! We wanted to have a pet friendly rental because we know dogs can be part of the family too! Our two Goldendoodles, Freddy and Johnny, loves the lake as much as we do.

Courtney Youngblood purchased this Cabin in 2014

Watch the sunset over the mountains from this property. True Lake Lure Lakefront with a gentle walk to the water. This winter, a large 600 square foot deck/dock and a 2nd bathroom were built. Brand new furniture completed the Happy Heron's remodel!

                                                              Sad we have to leave this place! Great location, cute house and beautiful scenery!!!

                                                              House was comfortable and very clean and the location can’t be beat! Can’t wait to be back!

                                                              We all loved it! Beautiful place to spend Christmas!

                                                              Very nice place! Best rental we have experienced! Owner is awesome and easy to get in touch with. The view is breathtaking, the kitchen is well stocked and very roomy, bathrooms newly renovated (would have liked a shower curtain in back bathroom so we could be in the bathroom when someone is showering) and it is all very clean. It was our first Christmas away from home and it was a great experience! Warning...if anyone gets car sick easy, send some dramamine. Very curvy ride up to the house.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for the kind words! You get used to the mountain roads but they are certainly curvy. Come back and see us soon!

                                                              We will be back!

                                                              We rented the Happy Heron over Thanksgiving weekend... 2 couples, 2 dogs. It was FABULOUS! Between fishing, kayaking and enjoying the views we all had the best time. We couldn't stop talking about how we wanted to rent the cabin again in the summer. We will be back!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So glad you had a great vacation! Hope you caught some fish. Come back when you can swim! Thank you for the review. Courtney

                                                              The property was in great condition!

                                                              This is the most wonderful lake home that I have ever stayed in. The home was charming,

                                                              warm and inviting. The views from the lake home and the dock were absolutely majestic.

                                                              I felt like I was on "Golden Pond" and I fully expected to see Henry Fonda and Katherine

                                                              Hepburn show up at any moment to greet me in person. This home is a "must stay in"

                                                              type of home and I would recommend it as a five star rental to anyone. I can't wait to go

                                                              back again next year. I don't think that I could ever find a lake home to rent better than this one!

                                                              I think I have to be fair and say that all of our reviews are VRBO guests except this one and this one is my Dad. Glad you had fun, Dad.


                                                              Charming wonderful cottage with gorgeous views

                                                              Richard D.

                                                              It was an incredible mini-holiday for wife, daughter (7), son (4), dog and I. The cabin is up to date and there was plenty of room for all. The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds and the short amount of stairs to the boat house dock, from which we must have spent over 20 hours fishing. The cabin was clean and well maintained, so much so my wife opined that if we were to buy a cabin we should buy this one. As usual, we rented a pontoon boat and had a great day on the lake, hitting up Larkin's and the ice cream shop at the North Shore Beach Cabana.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              The property is well maintained with lots of places to relax. The condition of the property was excellent. The owners were great. The cottage is well stocked with utensils, cable and DVD player. The sunsets were fabulous.

                                                              I would recommend this rental for anyone looking to totally relax.
