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.


November to middle of May: minimum rental is 3 nights.

End of May through October: minimum rental is 6 nights (weekly rate applies)


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.


Lovingly furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and rustic pieces, the great room has a fireplace, cathedral ceiling, skylights, and ceiling fans. TV, VCR, DVD player, a large collection of movies, satellite TV, WiFi, and board games provide many choices for entertainment.

Sleeping accommodations offer two bedrooms (one king; one queen), and a futon in the great room converts to a double bed. Two full baths (linens provided). Ceiling fan in each room. Central heat and air.

WiFi included - convenient for checking out local attractions and keeping in touch.

Kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster over, coffee maker, crock pot, blender, pots and pans, utensils, and dishes.

Favorite spots are the deck and the two screened porches. A hammock chair, cedar porch swing, gas grill, and patio furniture are provided for your enjoyment. The double hammock under the trees is a great spot to read.

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.

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.

Scott purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Scott chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

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

Perfect Cabin to relax

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two-week stay. Well equipped and comfortable. Two screened porches and large deck a bonus. The fenced yard was so nice for our cocker, thank you for allowing well-behaved dogs. Good walking areas in the community and close to everything.

Set up nice for our four legged kids. Had a relaxing week and enjoyed the area. Cabin and porches were extra clean, and had everything we needed during the week.Master bed was very comfortable. Only a few miles to a nice grocery store, and some nice restaurants within 15 minutes. Saw a lot of deer passing by.

Very quaint cottage in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great. The owners take care of everything and communicate well. Everything was taken care of and worked perfectly. Cabin is well appointed and very nice to have the fenced in yard. Dog love it.. Also loved the swimming hole. Back deck was nice. Had a great time. Wish cabin had a view. Nice forest setting but no mountain or lake views. Trade off was a cozy cabin with a fenced in yard and everything you need provided.
