Lovely retreat on a mountain lake

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a mountain lake retreat and we found it with the Lakefront Mountain Cabin. It was well stocked with all the amenities we wanted. A real plus was being able to walk down the stairs to the dock to swim and canoe every day. The house is at the end of the small mirror lake and the water was clear and warm.

The access road to the cabin was flat and easy to navigate. We were also grateful for the easy access from the parking to the front door-what a plus when you are hauling in groceries and luggage. The cabin was close to every thing(the nature trail, the entrance, swimming beach and old swimming hole) while being secluded and peaceful.

We also enjoyed the swimming beach nearby as well as the old swimming hole where our old dog got to frolic off leash with other dogs in the water. That was priceless!

We only had one minor issue with the AC during the brutally hot spell but the property owner was very prompt in replying and it was quickly fixed.

Our only regret was that we didn't book additional days!!!

We would stay here again in a "heartbeat".

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is exactly how it's described. The cabin is very roomy inside and "stocked" with everything you may need, the bonus is that it overlooks a small lake. My kids especially loved the canoe-and they have everything needed for fishing including fishing rods and life preservers for kids and adults alike. The driveway is easily accessible without having to go down/up a steep driveway, unlike other cabins in the development. Customer service was stellar--the refrigerator actually malfunctioned while we were there and we emailed the owner who responded to the email within 5 minutes. She was able to secure a repairmen within 2-3 days, however, she compensated us for the inconvenience without us even asking. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area.

perfect getaway for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Autumn is a fabulous time to visit the Lake Lure area. The mild temperature and trees without leaves make the hiking and vistas magnificent.

We can't say enough good things about the Hernandez cabin. The loft is charming, while the first floor is beautiful and comfortable. We grandparents especially appreciated the jacuzzi after two days of hiking Rumbling Bald and Chimney Rock. We all enjoyed the canoeing on Little Mirror Lake. It was so easy to make ourselves at home in the well-equipped kitchen. The instructions were very complete and clear and we found it just as described. This cabin was a treasure to find, and worked beautifully for our three generation Thanksgiving retreat. We'd love to do it again.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The website, including the photos, give you a good sense of what this place is like. It is a nice, quiet, comfortable house, overlooking a small lake. There are plenty of fun day trips to do -- if you want to -- or you can just hang out on the terrace and relax.

Excellent experience and stay

We had a wonderful time staying at your cozy cabin on small Mirror Lake. You provided everything needed for our stay and we so appreciated that. We highly recommend your cabin to anyone staying near Lake Lure.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week. Cabin presents as photographed - was actually bigger than I expected. Loved the swing on the back porch. My husband used the canoe- no issues. Cabin was clean, everything worked, and it was a very quiet area. Went into Asheville, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, and the Biltmore. The only drawback for us was the remote nature of the cabin- takes a little while to get places. But very well cared for and exactly as presented. Owners were very pleasant to deal with as well. :)
