This cabin was a perfect place for our family of 12 (9 adults, 3 kids). Because it only sleeps 10, we brought sleeping bags/airbed and it worked out very well. The cabin is spacious and very comfortable. It looks like it is newly renovated and still in the process of being finished so the door for the downstairs bedroom is missing and some electrical outlets have not been covered properly.
Ms. Lyn was great in helping us find her cabin. Stonecrest Pwy and Stonecrest Ct are NOT CLOSE by, so we suggest listing the coordinates of the cabin rather than just the address which GPS devices do not seem to recognize.
Its location is beautiful, surrounded by trees and it is very quiet and safe. Because there is no internet access in the cabin (something I personally loved but my husband had a hard time with that) we had to drive to get internet access. The closest location we found was 10 minutes away, a Café that is only open from 10-3p.m.). The wi-fi signals seemed to be poor at the Café and other locations we visited in the near-by area. Again, not a problem for me at all! Our cellphone reception was on and off at the cabin.
Lake Lure has wonderful places to enjoy close by. We visited Chimney Rock, Asheville (45 min drive), went fishing and swimming in Lake Lure, visited Carowinds Amusement Park in Charlotte (90 or so minute drive) and drove to the Smokey Mountains (a 2 hour drive) and saw the Cherokee museum and reservation.
Our suggestions for improving the cabin stay would be to place a door in the downstairs bedroom, to cover all electrical outlets, to place some shelves in the showers and bathrooms for toiletries (which by the way, both bathrooms are very spacious and clean), and to have different/better towels. The towels had a funny smell and left us with lint every time we showered!
This is a great location for an awesome price!! We would highly recommend this place for your next vacation!
