Wonderful place to relax and enjoy family.
The Commanders In Port Cabin is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy family. It's spacious with a down home feel. We've visited three times and look forward to the next family gathering. The accommodations are welcoming and complete with everything needed to enjoy your stay! On one occasion we've had more than 10 stay comfortably with the use of additional air mattresses. There is easy access to Ingles supermarket as well as shopping and family fun activities with Lake Lure and Chimney Rock Village close by. We've been there in April, October and December, the scenery is spectacular year around.
Excellent Customer Service!!
Our family celebrated Christmas and Mom's 80th Birthday weekend. The house was accommodating and spacious. At times we had 3 cooks in the kitchen and plenty of laughter. The atmosphere was filled with love and lots of coffee.The Christmas tree and stockings were a welcoming and pleasant surprise. This felt like home away from home. Thank you for your service and hospitality.
Booked the cabin for two weeks during the Tryon Horse Show. This is the second time we have used it for the event. Now that the compound has moved, the cabin is much more accessible. Only 20 min. away. Very convenient! With the five bedrooms and large living area it accommodated the three adults and 6 girls very comfortably. Since we were showing on a daily basis, we spent very little time at the cabin but it was nice to come home to it, not a hotel. Even saw the neighborhood bear on one occasion:).
We had the pleasure of staying here for 4 days in April 2016. The cabin is well kept, very clean and has all modern amenities you could ever need. The views at sunset were nothing less than spectacular and are excentuated that much more by enjoying them from the hot tub on the deck.
There are plenty of activities just a short driving distance away which will satisfy adventurers, younger families and older couples alike. Where else can you climb a mountain to see a waterfall, have lunch by a beautiful river and go to a spa for a massage all in the same day? There truly is something for everyone.
We were immediately won over by the scenic views and the seclusion the cabin has to offer. We found ourselves on the back deck every night watching the seemingly endless number of stars in the sky as we relaxed and just took in the blissful silence we never knew existed.
This was a wonderful experience we won't soon forget and plan to return as soon as our schedule permits.
Delightful Christmas Getaway
What a special week we had celebrating Christmas at the Commander's Cabin! The home was beautifully decorated for the season, right down to the personalized Christmas stockings for all our little ones. This cabin was so comfortable and plenty of room for our large extended family to spread out and relax. (The word "cabin" doesn't do it justice...it's beautiful!) Lots of fun in the hot tub, playing pool, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Randy (owner) and Barb (property manager) were both great to work with and so accommodating. They made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable family retreat. We left an item behind and Barb even mailed it to us the very next day. Many thanks Randy for sharing your beautiful home with us, we look forward to coming back again to the Commander's Cabin! The Copleys
A wonderful vacation experience
My family and I so enjoyed this spectacular home and setting for our celebration weekend. The pictures do not do it justice. This is a beautiful, expansive log home that could be featured in Homes Beautiful Magazine, yet it has all the warmth and charm and joy of a family home. Many fun sites to see around the area, as well. Thank you so much, Commander, for sharing this extraordinary place with us, and for your service to our great country. Cathy, Dana, Alex, and Tyler
