Cabin was so ideal!

  • 5 of 5

This mountain trip was perfect for our group of friends & family. The house had plenty of space for everyone, was cozy & comfortable. The house was endlessly enertaining for our group & we just love love love the Lake Lure area. We plan on coming back annually (if not sooner!) My favorite parts of the cabin were the porches, jacuzzi & beautiful dining table. Super grateful to Randy for having us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the visit and comments! The dining room table was custom Amish made and is a true piece of art. The fall leaf changing season and spring mountain laurel season are beautiful periods to visit the cabin. Hope to have you "aboard" for another visit soon. The Commander

A Great Place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. We gathered four generations together for our annual family vacation/reunion. Everyone from our 92 year old matriarch to her 7 month old great-grandson was comfortably situated and relaxed at this spacious mountain home. The two large gathering rooms are well suited for visiting with each other and making memories.

Gorgeous

We had a wonderful time on our vacation! This cabin is awesome and in a secluded neighborhood which is just what we were looking for. It was a quick drive to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. We enjoyed the area and the things to do including the beach, hiking and zip lining! What a fun trip!!

Gorgeous Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A terrific weekend retreat to the quiet, it was an ideal location 10 minutes or so to the lake and 10 to the resort. The house was clean, the beds comfortable and hot tub worked great. Our group was very satisfied with our stay and plenty of kitchen items to cook on our own. We would love to go back!
