Rustic and fabulous
First of all the owner Crayton Kale was the most gracious and accommodating host we have ever had the pleasure to deal with while renting a vacation spot. We are in our 60's so have a bit of experience traveling. This rustic cabin is just what we had hoped for and more. This is not new and we didn't expect it to be updated. That's part of the charm. There are family pictures and decorations that have probably been there for years and it made us feel nostalgic. Everything worked just fine. The bathrooms are lovely, bedding comfortable, tv's in several rooms, quaint decorations everywhere. rockers on the porch, and supplies for anything you might need. As much as we appreciated the cabin we spent most days out on the lake as we were fortunate to be the first renters of the cabin's newly added pontoon boat. The kayaks were available and I'm sure grand fun for many but knee surgery keeps me from that activity so the pontoon was a marvelous surprise. We loved being able to come in and take a break then go right back out. The dock is newer and has a nice table and chairs for morning coffee or whatever. Honestly, I can't say enough about how many extras this place offers. If you like things immaculate, brand new, and totally updated this is not the place for you. If you appreciate down to earth, warm, and welcoming with a rustic feel there's no better place I know! The locals were a fine example of southern hospitality everywhere we went and happy to give us tips. We loved the Blue Parrot Restaurant. The food was excellent. We also visited Elevation Church in Charlotte which was a wonderful experience! I think even our dogs hated to leave. Many thanks to Mr. Kale for maintaining such a lovely vacation home.

Our visit to the cabin
This was the most beautiful and peaceful vacation I ever had in my life. The log cabin was beautiful. Everything you needed was provided. We swam everyday and went out on the kayaks several times. At night we enjoyed the fire pit under the moonlight skies. Everyone in town were very friendly. It was very difficult to pack up to return home. We will definitely be returning to the cabin again and again!
Great little cabin with a fantastic view
Great cabin, had everything we needed and then some. Fantastic sunrises and so peaceful.
Disappointing. Beautiful property. Neglected house.
The property is gorgeous. The cabin seems like it was a family home, well-loved by more than one generation. Unfortunately, the property owners don’t seem interested in maintaining it any more than the absolute bare minimum. I felt like a guest who had unexpectedly called and asked to use the place because my other plans fell through instead of someone who had paid over $1k to stay the weekend.
There was dust everywhere. The grill was so disgusting (not cleaned for at least a season or two) we went out and bought a new one since we had intented to grill the entire trip. There are mice and bugs. We saw both. (Yes, we saw live live mice running through the rental during our stay.) There was a serious wasp infestation on the porch, so don’t plan on sitting out there leisurely if you have issues with the constant buzzing and dodging. We used bee and wasp spray to try and combat it, but I still ended up getting stung. Floor boards were coming up throughout. Probably worst of all, there was a leak in one of the bedrooms. My sister (who happens to be disabled) ended up with a huge wet spot on her bed from it. When I tried contacting the owners, all I got was a text several hours later saying they were sorry...but they did absolutely nothing about it.
The cleaning fee is an absolute joke. Again, the place looked like it hadn’t been dusted since 1975, and there were mice droppings on the stove. Plus, they want the guests to put all the linens in the wash on their way out. So really all the owners/maintenance has to do is change the sheets.
Also important to note, the second floor has extremely low ceilings. You really can’t stand up straight anywhere except the bathroom and center of the rooms and hallway. Otherwise, the steep slope of the roof makes it so you have to bend over a bit. Even standing up next to the bed was a problem for us.
As many guests before me have mentioned, the place could use a serious update. Even something as simple as getting rid of the old, dusty cushions and blankets, kept better as family treasures in the attic, and putting out new curtains and blankets would be a major upgrade.
It’s really a shame how careless (they literally seem to not care at all about anything other than making a quick buck) owners are because the property itself is great. I wish we would’ve had better hosts because it really could’ve been a spectacular vacation.
Very nice property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Log Cabin at the Lake. It has a beautiful view of the lake and wonderful peacefulness. We hope to be able to visit again in the future.
Wonderful and cozy authentic log cabin on the lake
What a great escape from a high tech world. Peace and quiet surrounded by blue birds, herons, loons and beautiful sunrises.
All the modern conveniences made our stay comfortable and memorable.
Would definitely stay again!
