Peaceful 4 BRM 3 BATH, 2-Story Mountain Retreat with Wooded and Water Views
About Julia Willingham
Greetings from the Willingham Family. We initially purchased this cabin in late 2013 and it quickly became the location for many happy family memories for us with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. The secluded nature of the cabin's location gives the feel of being far out in the woods, yet, in just a mile on the gravel road, we are at civilization again with restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations and a plethora of mountain activities! From enjoying a hike in nearly Chimney Rock State Park to grabbing a bite of local fare or an ice cream treat right next to the gurgling Broad River, we've savored every moment. We'd like to share this special place with your family too. Schedule your getaway today!

Why Julia Willingham chose Lake Lure
We love the area of Lake Lure because it is truly a four season resort area. There is something for everyone, no matter the time of year. In the summer, we escape the hotter areas of the South for the cooler evenings in the mountains. During the day guests can swim and fish, or even zip line, but in the evening still enjoy a fire in the fire pit roasting marshmallows. Our cabin is only a short 45 minute drive from Asheville, where art and cultural opportunities abound. In the Fall, guests enjoy the beautiful colors of the trees on nearby hiking trails or golf courses, or from the comfort of our upper porch. In the Winter, guests spend time curled up by the fire reading a book or playing games with family. And in the Spring, when the wildlife is stirring and the buds are blooming, it's a great time for photo ops!
What makes this House unique
A lovely part of our home is the covered flagstone patio outside the basement floor of the cabin. It is the best place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee in one of the two porch swings while catching a glimpse the various birds in the backyard. Inside our own gated community of Riverbend, which is situated just 3 miles from Lake Lure proper, guests will find a nature walk, a waterfall, Mirror Lake (kayak and canoe friendly) and a community picnic area with tables, grills, rocking chairs, restrooms, and a gorgeous view at sunset!

papa bears cabin
The cabin is a little off the beaten path, not that it was a problem since we had 4WD vehicles but the owner may want to advertise the cabins location a little better. To me it was fun but others may not feel the same. The cabin was conveniently located to and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the secluded location a views. I would recommend others.
We had a great time!
Our family had a wonderful time relaxing on the porch and playing in the game room!
Great relaxing time away with Jesus!
We brought a small group of ladies to get away on our Jesus retreat and this place was wonderful. Beautiful scenery, lake, river and waterfall and just all around peaceful. Place was fully stocked, clean and user friendly. Very pleased with everything! Thanks again!
Week end retreat
The property was exactly as presented and was a wonderful place for two young families to get together and let their small children play. We would come here again.
The cabin was very comfortable and as advertised. There’s plenty of space and bedrooms, perfect for a family or mid sized group. The atmosphere was very peaceful and it’s just a short drive from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock.
Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park only 10 minutes away.
Tryon Equestrian Center is about 20 minutes away.
Asheville and Black Mountain are both 45 minutes away.
