About the property

*** There is a $15 (weekly) Riverbend Community Peak Season charge for Mountain Lake Escape, from Memorial Day to Labor Day inclusive.

We invite you to enjoy our new 3 bedroom cabin (2 queens with a loft as a third bedroom) in the gated community of Riverbend just 10 minutes east of Lake Lure's public beach. Our cabin is a true retreat in a serene setting including access to (and winter views of) Mirror Lake, Little Mirror Lake and Broad River. Enjoy swimming, tubing, fishing, and boating.

The two queen beds downstairs both have memory foam toppers and soft sheets. The upstairs loft has two very comfortable twin beds and a full futon (and lots of board games and books).

The fully equipped modern kitchen, with all stainless steel appliances, seats up to 8. Cozy up to a warm fire in the beautiful stone fireplace. We now have free wifi with Verizon and a Netflix so you can stream movies/shows.

We are dog friendly and have two dog beds, leashes, dog bowls and treats.

Our egg shaped chairs on the front porch are perfect for sipping lemonade on a warm summer day.

The new fire pit is allowed for renters as long as there is a burn permit in place. We currently have a burn permit.

We pride ourselves on using natural cleaning products including Doterra essential oils.

Our cabin is located 10 minutes from Lake Lure, 15 minutes to Chimney Rock, 30 minutes to Tryon (TIEC), 45 minutes to Black Mountain, 60 minutes to Asheville (a little under an hour to the Avl airport).

About Karen Beijer

My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We live about an hour away from this sweet cabin, which is our 2nd home. Owning this cabin is a dream come true! We are enjoying creating a beautiful relaxing space to share with others so they can escape from it all and enjoy being in the present moment. We are now making memories with our two teenage boys in Lake Lure at our cabin and giving them the off grid experience. Our two dogs, Lily and Ollie both enjoy hiking and snuggling at our cabin as well as going in the water down at Broad River. We hope to bring our canoe to the cabin so that renters may also use it. We ask that you treat our cabin as if it is yours.

Karen Beijer purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Karen Beijer chose Lake Lure

We knew the moment we drove into the Riverbend Community that we wanted to have our 2nd home there. We had been searching for over a year for the perfect cabin for ourselves and to have as a vacation rental for others to enjoy. Driving though the dirt/gravel roads in Riverbend you will first see the Old Swimming Hole. Up the road and around the corner you will see Mirror Lake with its pavilion, beach, and dock for boating, fishing and swimming. Across the road is the River Walk where you can take in the beautiful Broad River including several deeper swimming hole areas and big gorgeous boulders, and a small peaceful waterfall. There are some tables down at the river to picnic at as well. Past Mirror Lake is Little Mirror Lake that also has a picnic table. The neighborhood has over 350 houses (mostly log homes) and each one has enough land that you can barely see your neighbor. The community is very wooded, and there's wildlife including deer, bobcats, foxes, bears. We do encourage leashing your dogs for their own safety.

When we are at the cabin we really get the feeling of not wanting to leave. There is much to see only 10 minutes away in Lake Lure or 15 minutes to Chimney Rock, and an hour to Asheville. The location of the cabin is perfect for zip lining, kayaking, the Tryon International Equestrian Center events, festivals (don't miss the Dirty Dancing Festival in Lake Lure in August), tubing, boating, fishing, breweries, wineries, hiking, biking, horse back riding.

What makes this cabin unique

We knew from the moment we walked into the cabin that it was THE ONE! The beautiful vaulted ceiling (and exposed beams) was the first thing that caught our eye. The handcrafted one of a kind wagon wheel lighting fixture in the living room gave the space a unique feel. Then it was the stone fireplace and mantle from the 1700's taken from a cabin from West Virginia. There are beautiful winter views of Mirror Lake from the deck which is a great spot to have your morning coffee.

Our plan is to adorn the cabin with art work from local artists. The desk and console table are from a local woodworker and was designed by us. The coasters on the wall were created by a local artist and yoga teacher (who is also available or private yoga sessions at the cabin or down by the river).

We use natural products to clean the cabin including Doterra Essential oils and their On Guard Cleaner Concentrate. Water, vinegar, Bon Ami are also used.

We hope you appreciate some of these unique aspects to our cabin and enjoy it during your stay!

Rustic Chic

  • 5 of 5

First time trip at the Lake Lure area. I was a bit nervous when we drove through the crowded main road, but we kept driving around the lake, to the adorable, quiet neighborhood where this cabin is located. Easy drive to town, but feels far away. My kids LOVED the neighborhood creek--we spent hours there having lunch and splashing around. The decor of the cabin was super charming. In the evenings the kids disappeared to play games upstairs. A perfect weekend getaway.

This is our 2nd visit to the Lake Escape & it was amazing. My daughters, wife and I love coming back to Lake Lure. We love the privacy the cabin provides along with how close it is to the lakes in the Riverbend neighborhood. The fuseball table was a hit with my 7 year old.

I love that Karen is super responsive. She makes sure you have what you need and that you're taken care of. My family and I thank you for another great spring break vacation.

Total escape to bliss.....

  • 4 of 5

This vacation house was truely a wonderful experience. Clean, spacious and new! Had a party 5 and 2 dogs. Quiet, scenic and enjoyed the amenities. Owners are a pleasure to work with. Wish I could have stayed longer. Downtown Lk Lure is about a 20-25 minute drive and we really enjoyed the riverwalk and local brewery having a cold one watching the river go by. Great place for a weekend get-away.

Wonderful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Five good friends gathered for a St. Patrick's Day Birthday celebration. The cabin was perfectly appointed in a beautiful location that is remote yet very close to all the local amenities. Beautiful weather complimented the wonderful surroundings and we had a fire at the fire pit in the evening. Karen, the owner, was very gracious with any question or request that we had. We would definitely all recommend this rental. The winter views of the lake are great. Thanks for being so dog friendly. It is nice to be welcomed instead of penalized for traveling with a pet. We will definitely plan on returning.
