Guestbook comments from the owner
I feel refreshed and renewed in just six days at your peaceful mountain cottage. I don’t know if it was the mountain air or the peace and quiet, but I haven’t slept this well in years! We loved sitting on the deck with woods all around and even doing our yoga out there. We got lots of exercise hiking out to the falls in Chimney Rock Park and climbing up all 400+ steps up Chimney Rock. It was well worth it – such beautiful sights at the top. We loved the simple pleasures of swimming and kayaking in the lake as well. Biltmore of course was not to be missed, and the wine tasting at their private winery capped off our perfect week. Oh, I forgot to mention our trip to Asheville early in the week. We found a great organic food store, Green Life Grocery (although we were happy to see that the local Ingles also had plenty of organic foods). We visited some wonderful art galleries on Biltmore Avenue in Asheville. Your home was so well equipped and comfortable. Thanks for all the special touches.

GREAT STAY AT RABBITS RETREAT!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Irene, for sharing your beautiful cottage! We had a wonderful weekend, the place was immaculate, and had everything we needed. We visit the area at least once a year, and love that this place is in a wonderful gated community, with Lake Lure and Chimney Rock so close by. The neighborhood is quiet, and we enjoyed many walks just exploring and relaxing. Having Ingles supermarket so close by is a huge plus, we were able to cook meals in the cottage, it really was a home away from home.

The process to reserve the weekend couldn't have been easier, the owner responded to my inquiry incredibly fast, and provided excellent directions to the cottage, she called to make sure we had arrived and found the place ok. My only regret was having only 3 nights to spend here....next time it will be longer for sure, as it was not easy to leave such a great place! Thanks again!

RABBIT'S RETREAT - LAKE LURE, NC

Rabbit's Retreat - Lake Lure, NC
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most wonderful weekend get-a-away for Christmas at "Rabbit's Retreat" in Lake Lure, NC. Nick & Irene had the cabin decorated with Christmas lights, and Christmas music was playing softly when we arrived. It was so inviting and the complimentary bottle of wine just made our arrival perfect! The cabin was spotless and very well decorated and fully furnished. It was like having a home away from home. Having Ingles supermarket so close allowed us to shop for the items we needed so we were able to "eat in" most of our meals.

I would definitely recommend this property and the owners to anyone; they are wonderful to work with and the home is very nice. There are several great restaurants in the area and many cute shops to visit. For those who love the outdoors, there are many trails to hike and things to do. Chimney Rock is so close and Asheville is within about 45 minutes. Rabbit's Retreat is a very memorable place and I highly recommend it.

RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for a getaway from the city! The owner made the process of reserving the property very simple and provided excellent directions to its location. The cottage was very clean and quiet and we were pleasantly surprised with the kitchen stocked with items we've had to pay or bring in the past. Each morning we had breakfast on the porch overlooking the mountains in solitude.

We couldn't have picked a better place to spend relaxing. It's located in a small gated community and has a small lake and walking trail with a small waterfall on the premise. For those that are looking to spend a day at Lake Lure, it's only a short drive away.

We're looking forward to returning for the fall foliage and additional weekend getaways!
