About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

All the luxury you want nestled on two wooded acres in a gated community. Breathtaking mountain views, bold streams, and cool mountain breezes await you.

This log home was designed to provide you with a dream vacation. Sit on the huge deck and watch the sunset behind the mountains, while you cook on the Weber grill. A deer or wild turkey may decide to join you. If you want the feeling of camping out without leaving the comforts of home, start a fire in the firepit and roast hot dogs and marshmallows over the open flame. The granite counters and stainless steel appliances make cooking inside a joy. Maybe sipping hot cocoa in front of the fire place and watching a movie on the 42 inch plasma HDTV and ordering take-out is more your style? All options are available.

If your ready for an adventure, the cabin is in the center of the best Western North Carolina has to offer. Asheville's Biltmore House, Hendersonville's charming downtown, and apple country are a short drive away. Skiing at Sugar and Beech Mountain are a little over an hours drive. Chimney Rock Park and Lake Lure are a short drive. Home and Gardens Television (HGTV) picked Lake Lure as a location to build one of their 'Dream Homes' for a reason. Staying here will be a dream vacation. Choose to do nothing or do it all. This location gives you the option. The neighborhood is well suited for walking, jogging and cycling.

Why Jennifer Dior chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We love the quiet peacefulness and fresh air of the Lake Lure area. We've visited many times over the last 15 years and finally decided to purchase our future retirement home.

What makes this cabin unique

The home is located in a peaceful gated community perfectly suited to long walks, jogging and cycling. There is a spectacular mountain view from inside and outside of the home and beautiful sunsets over the mountains.

Excellent Cabin for a quiet getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin in a quiet, gated community. Close to Chimney Rock State Park (20 min) and about an hour to Asheville. Furnishings are excellent and beds are comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need. Jennifer was an excellent host. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful Setting

  • 3 of 5

This was a beautiful setting in the woods with a lovely porch that enjoyed afternoon sun. We were only there one night but the kitchen was nice sized and would have been easy to cook in.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Hopefully you can return for a longer stay and enjoy the beauty and calm of the area. For clarity to readers of reviews; we don't do one night bookings. This was a 2 night weekend booking. They must have had to leave early for some reason. Jennifer Dior

Great place, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and had everything we needed it was great. It was our honeymoon and we would of liked to have had a fire but the fireplace was disabled for the summer.

The add said discount if more than 3 days which we didn't get. Vrbo wasn't the greatest of help but Jenifer the owner was. We would definatly recommend and use the cabin again.

The happy honeymooners,

Bruce and Diana

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. You'll have to come back in winter to try out the fireplace! Discounts for 4 or more nights can only be offered by booking directly with me, not through 'book it now' feature. This feature is convenient but costs more for both the vacationer and owner.

Beautiful cabin in a gated community. Very private. Nicely decorated and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lovely cabin. It is very private and very well kept. I really enjoyed sitting on the rocking chairs or swing for my morning coffee and sitting by the fire pit in the evenings. Perfect place for a relaxing stay.
