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!

About the owner: 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. I'm a former high school teacher and college professor. For the last 20 years I've been with a software company where I do training and customer support. 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.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure, NC, USA:
Although only a two hour drive from Columbia, SC, 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
