About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Futon, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cozy log cabin in Lake Lure, North Carolina, embraces you from the moment you enter - any time of year. Whether it's morning coffee on the porch, watching the sunset over the mountains from the deck, enjoying the beach on a sunny summer day at Mirror Lake or Lake Lure, or cuddling in front of the fire on a winter's eve, you are encouraged to catch your breath and relax in a tranquil, natural setting in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps the window seat or the hammock will encourage you to indulge in a good book or a well-deserved nap. Enjoy lunch on either screened porch. We are pet friendly!

NOTE: Please read the descriptions under each of the photos. This cabin is not on the lake.

Springtime brings the cabin's great show of azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. From the deck during the summer watch the hummingbirds and bluebirds by day and the fireflies in the evening. The variety of trees provides a colorful, wondrous autumn. Winter mountain views are majestic.

About Scott

The pups and I enjoy walks and play time, both at the cabin and at home. Hard to tell which of us gets more enjoyment our of our daily morning walks.

The cabin is a labor of love, and it's fulfilling to share it with guests. I take great pride in providing a welcoming and comfortable retreat for you.

Scott purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Scott chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Although only a two hour drive from Kernersville, NC, the Lake Lure area is a world away from the city. The scenic vistas inspire and soothe the soul. There's something very special about hanging out at the cabin - whether on a porch or on the swing. Peaceful and welcoming.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a private setting on over a wooded acre on a gated road, yet it is convenient to a large grocery store, restaurants, and the area attractions. Being in a gated community, guests have access to a private lake with swimming beach and a scenic picnic area along the river. The town of Lake Lure with a large town beach is a 15 min. scenic drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Anne,

We really enjoyed the peace, quiet, and getting back to the simple things in life at your cabin. It is very obvious that you work very hard to make sure your guests are supplied with anything they could possibly need. The kids had a wonderful time and enjoyed games and movies that are available. We look forward to coming again to your lovely cabin. Thanks a million! Helen, Kim, Derrick & Kids

Lovely, well-appointed cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very clean, charming, and well-appointed. I am not tech-savvy, but was able to navigate the TV/DVD/VHS player easily. Scott and Veronica have thought of everything - blender, mixer, toaster, tons of DVDs, videos, books, puzzles, a gracious plenty of towels, and basically everything we needed for the week except groceries. Oh, and a vase of gorgeous fresh flowers greeted us when we walked in the door! It was nice to have a choice of Keurig or Mr Coffee. The BEST part: There are 2 screened porches, with tables and chairs, and a large deck (part covered, and part not), with a wonderful swing. We had a lot of rain during the week, but enjoyed cooking meals at the cabin, and sitting on the porches with our coffee and/or wine. Lots of deer passing through - beautiful! One of our dogs is a senior with arthritis, and we really appreciated the ramp so he could get to the yard without dealing with stairs. Obviously, the Pipers really care about dogs. Lots of great recommendations for the local restaurants, but we really loved Larkin's on the Lake. Great view, service and food. If we had stayed another day, we would have gone back there. The she-crab soup was the best we've ever tasted, and we are from Charleston SC. We hope to return next summer!

Very comfy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Scott's cabin. Everything needed was there. The cabin was very clean.

Lots of deck space and screened area to enjoy the outside. Inside was very cozy with all of the conveniences of your own home. Lots to do in Lake Lure and neighboring cities. Good wineries and craft beer. Highly recommend this cabin for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

It has been more than 5 years since we last stayed at this cabin. Now it is even more cozy and comfortable for people and pets too. The kitchen had all the supplies we needed to cook rather than go out. We just loved staying there but knowing too that there were many places to explore within less than an hours drive. It's not often that we can get away to this part of our beautiful mountains but ,when we can again , we will definitely come back to Pipers Cabin! Thank you!!!!

Beautiful Cabin and Setting!

We enjoyed our stay at the Piper Cabin! It was a very accommodating cabin for my family that is centrally located to so many activities. We will be back again to explore more of the area. We highly recommend the Piper Cabin for your stay!
