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!

What makes this cabin unique

Lakefront, Sunsets Views, Pet-Friendly, Large kitchen and Living area.

Relaxing week in a wonderful location. This cabin was a great getaway for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has one of the best views on Lake Lure. Sunset Cove provided a safe haven to swim, float, paddle and just be lazy. The owners have made a very quaint hideaway for anyone "wanting to get away from it all". The house is ideally located and the dock is generous in size. We enjoyed coffee in the morning on the porch, lunch on the dock and dinner overlooking the lake from the dining area inside. Our family brought kayaks and floats but really didn't need to because the property comes well stocked with such things. Lake Lure is located in a hilly area and many properties have lots of stairs to get from cabin to the lake. Not so with with this place. The lake is close and access is easy. We made day trips into Chimney Rock and Asheville which are close by. This was our first trip to Lake Lure and we feel fortunate to have gotten to stay at The Happy Heron. Bring a good book and be sure to feed the mallards.

Picturesque and relaxing destination

  • 5 of 5

Whether it was sitting on the porch watching the sun set behind the mountains, fishing, kayaking, reading a book on the dock, cruising the lake, or enjoying a meal together with family, it is all only enhanced by a very well appointed perfectly located home on the lake. We'll be back!

A Wonderful Spring Weekend at the Happy Heron at Lake Lure!

  • 5 of 5

As long time visitors to Lake Lure, we were amazed that this modest cabin has been transformed by the new owners into such upscale lodging. The rustic charm remains, but the upgrades provide an extremely comfortable visit. The spectacular vista, the location in a quiet cove, the welcoming front deck, and the dining nook surrounded by windows, and for us, the pet friendly option made this visit even more memorable! Kudos to the new owners for such a thoughtful rehab that kept the history of this cabin intact!
