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!

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 Lake Lure

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.

                                                            Connie M.

                                                            My husband and I with our 2 shelties spent 5 days at Piper’s Cabin. The cabin is furnished nicely and has everything you could possibly need and more! There are lots of places to go and things to do in the area, but we just stayed at the cabin and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Our “girls” loved the fenced yard, and we enjoyed sitting on the deck or screened porch. We’re already making plans to return .

                                                            Very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing.

                                                            Leandro C.

                                                            This is the 3rd time we stay in pipers cabin. My doggies love the cabin as much as we do.

                                                            We always come back because the cabin Is perfect and the owners are on top of all the details. You have everything you need and want. We are definitely coming back soon. We also Love Lake Lure.

                                                            Piper's Cabin feel like home.

                                                            Piper's Cabin is so comfortable and cozy. we couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The fenced in yard is perfect for the dogs and we enjoyed sitting by the fire after dinner. Everything you need is there to make you feel at home. This was our second year of being there during the holidays. We'll definitely be back! Btw, BEARnard is a lovely addition!

                                                            Linda M.

                                                            The cabin was lovely. The area is so peaceful and quiet. You can actually see stars at night. I loved it. The dogs loved the fenced yard and spent a lot of time on the beautiful deck. Everything you need is there. You just bring the food. Hope to make another trip. The area of Lake Lure is beautiful.

                                                            Could not have asked for more
