About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, pet-friendly, steps to the water. 600 square foot dock!

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 dog, Hemingway, loves the lake as much as we do.

Courtney Youngblood purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Courtney Youngblood chose Lake Lure

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!

Great trip, fantastic owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. I have rented a lot of vacation homes and these owners were the best I have ever experienced. The home was very clean and we had everything we needed. All the beds were very comfortable. The location is great, very close to the Ingles grocery store. The kids loved the kayak and swimming off of the dock. It is in a great cove, very quiet and fun to float around in. We went horseback riding, river tubing, rented a pontoon boat, water skied and tubed with Lake Lure Adventure company. We also zip lined, went to the Biltmore and the Asheville breweries. A great time was had by all. We can't wait to come back!

Charming lake front property with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our family at the Happy Heron. The location is perfect and the views are amazing! Very quiet and relaxing. We spent most of our time on the deck or out on the dock. The home is very clean and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots and bakeware. We can't wait to come back next summer!

A cozy, charming cottage with a spectacular view & location!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 night stay at Happy Heron was near perfection. If the fish had been biting more we probably would have never left. The location is on a cove just off a main channel and it was quiet but we did see a couple rowing teams, a fishing boat and a pontoon boat or two while we were there. The cottage is as comfortable as you could hope for. The kitchen was better stocked than most homes - every appliance, utensil, pot, pan and serving dish needed. In addition, the extras like flashlights, dish soap, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, a lighter, bandaids, etc. were all more than I've ever seen in a rental home and we are rent homes frequently. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens, bath and beach towels, hand soap and nice toiletries too. The gas grill was huge and looked to be new and I thought it was amazing that they keep two extra tanks of gas so that you never have to worry about running out of gas during your stay. Courtney has thought of everything!

During our early spring stay, all the flowers were beginning to bloom and the lovely landscape was bursting with colors. Lilacs, azaleas, dogwoods, dandelions - it was beautiful. The deck with umbrella table and lounge chairs was were we spent most of our time. The deck is new and in perfect condition and the view is unbelievable. We really enjoyed using the 2-man kayak and venturing out beyond our cove and exploring the waters. A very nice touch to include it with the house rental.

Ingles grocery store is 2-3 miles away and Chimney Rock village and state park is approx. 7 miles away and I highly recommend you visiting the park and exploring the small downtown. Lots of treats like funnel cakes, ice cream, pizza and cute gift shops and outdoors supply stores. The riverwalk downtown is a neat adventure too.

Courtney was a dream to deal with and so friendly. We honestly felt as though we were borrowing a friend's cabin. We cannot wait to return. There is no need to look for another property in Lake Lure. This will be our go-to rental from now on. Thank you Courtney!

Great lakefront property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at the property for the Christmas holiday, and it was perfect for our needs. The kayak that comes with the property was excellent for both the adults and kids that were with us. The house is exactly as advertised, and the dock and boathouse were even better than expected. Finally, the covered balcony is a gem that let the adults have a quiet place to read with some awesome views! The owners were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a quiet, fun and relaxing week at this lovely home. It had everything we needed and is situated in one of the best coves on the lake. Our 3 grown daughters spent most of the week with us and loved it! We discovered that our 12 year old long hair miniature daschound loves the water! We loved it so much that we're hoping to come back next summer! I (Jeff) ran here every morning and loved it.

Amazing house directly on Lake Lure!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Happy Heron cabin and we could not be happier!! The location is perfect- directly on the lake with very few stairs, stunning views, and private yet a short drive to Ingles. The cabin includes everything needed!! It was very clean and comfortable. We spent the majority of our week kayaking and relaxing on the dock. The boathouse was stocked with floats, life jackets, a kayak, and fishing rods. The dock provides seating for 7+ so the family can all relax comfortably! We had an amazing family vacation and would recommend the Happy Heron cabin to everyone!! We will def be back!
