Pure Peace and Serenity
From the moment of arrival and driving up to the cabin to the departure of leaving the cabin was pure bliss! It was such a cute place and very cozy too! The views alone were incredible! I started my morning with coffee and the morning View and the nights on the comfy couch with the fireplace and a glass of wine. I was able to cook some dinners with the cookware provided. I am a teacher and really enjoyed the peace and quiet! Some things that could make it just a little bit better would be some more comfortable porch furniture and an outside fireplace to tell stories and toast marshmallows by. If You are looking for a place to get away from it all, this is the place!
Fall mountain trip
My sister and I stayed at the cabin for our annual fall mountain trip. We found the view to be spectacular and the cabin lovely and clean and equipped with everything we needed. Would definitely like to stay there again.
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and well stocked. Plenty of room for my family and my sister’s. Only issue was the GPS took us to the wrong entrance gate, but the office answered our call immediately and gave us the appropriate directions to the main entrance. Apparently this is common. We loved the beautiful view from the porch and the upstairs window. Absolutely breathtaking. I hope we have the opportunity to stay again in the future.
Well worth the view! Beautiful mornings on the back porch!
There was a little trouble getting into the gate and the front door. However, the number listed for Carolina Properties was excellent help. Other than that, no issues whatsoever.
You,me,n the view
This was a fabulous vacation cabin in the Mountain. It was exactly what we were looking for. We had a incredible time.
Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Me, You, and the View is about 10 minutes from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and village. Lake Lure was ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. There are water sport rental options (kayaks, wake boards, boats, etc.) and pontoon tours of the lake.
The iconic Chimney Rock, for which the village and State Park were named, was featured on Arthur Frommer's Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Budget Travel magazine. The park received the platinum award for Favorite State Park in Blue Ridge Country’s 2013 Best of the Mountains travel poll, with voting every five years and covering seven southern states in the Appalachian Mountains. There are also several excellent golf courses nearby, including Apple Valley Golf Course, Bald Mountain Golf Course, and Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort, which Golf Digest rated as one of the top 50 golf destinations in the US.
If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (Memorial Highway). This stretch of road has 14 hairpin turns and runs through the Hickory Nut Gorge communities of Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, and Gerton. Continue toward Asheville to pick up what many consider the most beautiful length of road in this country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you have not traveled any this of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.
This beautiful home is centrally located just 15 minutes from Bat Cave; 35 minutes from Hendersonville; 50 minutes from Asheville; and about 2 hours from Charlotte, North Carolina. Also nearby are Pisgah National Forest (less an 1 hour from Lake Lure), which has over 500,000 acres of protected forest, and DuPont State Recreational Forest (1.25 hours from Lake Lure) with over 10,000 acres. These forests feature hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails, exquisite waterfalls, and beautiful mountaintop views. If you and/or your children are fans of The Hunger Games book and movie, a scene with Katniss and Gale was shot at the Pisgah National Forest. A few small but significant scenes were also filmed at the DuPont State Recreational Forest.
