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

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!

Amazing cozy pet friendly cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect gateway from it all. We had an amazing relaxing time with our 3 four legged kids. From the deers walking by and the morning coffee with the birds chirping. We are definitely coming back soon.

Great place for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our second time here. We really enjoyed the cabin as a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the serenity of the surroundings. It's well-equipped, comfortable, well-cared for, and a great place to "get away from it all." Close enough to town and places to eat, or just stay in and enjoy. Go visit the Equestrian Center in Tryon for lunch or dinner!

Lake Lure, North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using the HomeAway search. We left Illinois to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary in a quaint, quiet and homey place. This couldn't have been any more than just that, we immediately felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. Flowers were waiting on the counter to welcome us! The owners were in touch with us each step of the way and even after we left, making sure that we were satisfied with everything they had to offer.
