About the property

In the mountains AND at the Lake

Enjoy the best of many different peace and quiet of a quaint mountain retreat, a pristine lake to enjoy, wonderful hiking, easy proximity to the world renown International Equestrian center, the use of private equestrian and hiking trails right outside your door, and quick proximity to the expressway for visiting all the great tourist spots nearby. If you like hiking, paddling, swimming, riding or just relaxing to the gentle mountain breezes, you won't have to go anywhere else!

This large, airy 2nd floor studio apartment is finished in all natural ship lapped wood walls and gorgeous vaulted ceilings. No toxic finishes or materials were used and only non-toxic cleaning supplies are used. Breathe deep and breathe easy! There is a comfy queen sized bed, a cozy sitting area with a sleep sofa and leather recliner that faces a built in gas fireplace and satellite TV. A full but compact kitchen for making simple meals and a dining table and chairs complete the space. Through the door is a surprisingly large and airy bathroom with an oversized walk-in shower along with a large walk-in closet with room to hang your clothes or store them in the dresser. Downstairs on the entry level is a private laundry area and a full refrigerator and freezer that can be used. There's a small deck off the living area french doors with big mountain views, stunningly fresh air, and beautiful sunsets. Many miles of lovely hiking trails begin right out the back door and the lake and our boat dock is just across the street and down the hill.

This apartment comes complete with all necessary linens & towels, cooking utensils, coffeemakers, microwave. Free WiFi and the internet TV comes with a HULU interface. There is no landline telephone, so you'll need your own cell phone, and Verizon gets the best service in this area.

The owners live in a separate house across the courtyard, and are always available to help you with any details you might need. We are in the hospitality business and love doing everything we can to make your stay as comfortable, memorable and fun as possible. This is such a beautiful area to visit and we hope you will enjoy your stay!

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed there for 4 days with our 8&9 year old kids and three dogs. Mary and her husband Joe were so gracious and hospitable. The carriage house was perfect and so sweet. My daughter said she could live there for ever. The views were spectacular from the house. They also have these great walking paths that go around the property. The driveway is a little steep so be sure to get a running start since it is gravel. We also ate at their Italian local restaurant while we were there and it was outstanding! Would love to stay again!!!

Anytime we are planning a trip to beautiful Mill Spring, we stay here. Easy distance to restaurants and grocery store, breath taking views everywhere you look! We enjoy a great morning walk each day too. The apartment is so comfortable with soft, fresh linens and a comfortable bed. There is a wonderful desk to organize your phone chargers and tablets. We enjoy breakfast and coffee right at the apartment because it has a table for 4 set and waiting. It is a private, quiet location that is so enjoyable. Thank you again for another wonderful stay!

Beautiful location! Quiet and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House Mountain apartment is exactly as describe and so much more! We stayed for 1 week. Perfect directions were provided for the location. More spacious than the pictures. Spotless and clean in every way. A full closet/hangers, chest of drawers easily held all our clothes for the week. Huge shower and huge bathroom vanity. Plenty of soft bath and hand towels, washcloths and a fantastic hair dryer. Well stocked kitchen, we made breakfast every morning. There is a small refrigerator, 2 burner stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and pans for an omelet breakfast! The tap water is clean, crisp without any odor. We used it for tea, coffee and I wanted to bottle some up to bring home to wash my hair with because it was so silky and shiny from the water! The bed was so comfortable we woke up each morning finding we both had a great sleep. Beautiful big windows look down on the pretty landscaping and we watched deer and birds each morning. Very close to a wonderful grocery stores and restaurants in each nearby town of Lake Lure, Columbus, Tryon and Saluda, NC. There is a wonderful winery nearby too. We had a midsize rental car, but parking is easy and there is plenty of space to park a car or truck. I would absolutely make a reservation for the Carriage House apartment again!

peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful quiet retreat at the end of a day! Our girls loved the sleeping loft and termed the bathroom "cutest bathroom ever!" This was our first trip but definitely won't be our last. There were homenade cookies upon our arrival and every comfort you could need is available.

We hope you will contact us again when you and your girls come back to compete. Best wishes to you all! Mary

Fell in love with the carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and at home. The carriage house is warm, cozy and with plenty privacy. Our host/hostess had goodies waiting and were very accommodating. I can't say enough wonderful things about this location. We will be returning!!!
