About Kimberly Christenbury

I am an account manager for a software company, and a yoga teacher. I am recently married. We had visited Lake Lure on a vacation in 2006, and fell in love with the area. After that visit, we decided to begin looking for a cabin of our own. When we found Sadie's Retreat, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for!

Kimberly Christenbury purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kimberly Christenbury chose Lake Lure

Lake Lure is such a beautiful location. It has both the mountains, and the lake area. When we visited Lake Lure in 2006, we just couldn't get over all it had to offer. The mountains, lake, hiking, fishing, boating, shopping, great restaurants, vineyards, and much more! We decided that we had to share this location with others. We searched for just the right cabin for over a year. When we found 'Sadie's Retreat' we just knew we had found the perfect place. The view was so amazing, and the front porch allows you to relax from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay here at Sadie’s Retreat. Thank you for allowing us to bring our dogs as this made for a ‘homey’ atmosphere for us. The kitchen was stocked well and the bedrooms were comfortable. The best part had to be the frton porch with its beautiful view of the mountains. The temperatures were pefect to allow us to sit outside and enjoy God’s wonders. The only things we didn’t see were the deer everyone talks about!

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5
The long weekend getaway at this location was perfect. From the economical price, to the amenities within the cabin (satellite, internet, etc), to the deer in the front yard across the street each morning and evening, it fully met our expectations.
The kitchen was stocked with all needed utensils and accessories (even the corkscrew) and the bathroom was stocked with all the towels and toiletries needed.
I even got a chance to play some Tiger Woods golf on the Xbox. :-)
All communications were handled expediently and directions were accurate. The location of the cabin was convenient to Chimney Rock village and park, Lake Lure beach and lake access, as well as restaurants and the nearby Ingles.
I highly recommend a stay at this site.

Loving the Lake

  • 2 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Lake Lure and the location of the cabin is excellent. A direct view of Chimney Rock is also great. The cabin itself requires a good cleaning. The rugs (in kitchen and bathroom) were stained (appeared to be dog stains) and it didn't look like they were washed. Many of the lamps were covered in cobwebs on the inside. The dishes, mainly the pots, felt greasy. Not enough utensils or pots in the kitchen to make a meal with.
The Internet connection to watch a movie at night often failed, but that was okay since we spent most of our time at the lake and its surroundings. The area is fantastic.
No one ever called to check if we found everything to be to our liking. And even this review request just came today (4 weeks after our stay)- I don't get the impression that the owner(s) really care all that much.

Great get-away

  • 4 of 5
I really enjoyed my brief yet relaxing stay at Sadie Retreat. We spent the days at Chimney Rock and enjoyed warm evening at the cabin. The seating is not ideal for four people but it was enjoyable nonetheless. We also really enjoyed the view from the front porch while having hot coffee in the morning. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in lake lure. The location is convenient to many restaurants and the grocery store is less than 10 minutes away. I hope to stay here again in the future.

Not sure someone could not enjoy this place.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a pet friendly get-a-way. We love Asheville but we wanted to have more access to outdoor activities. This was it! We were 20-minutes away from all the excitement of Asheville but close to the great outdoors. We enjoyed hiking Chimney Rock and nightly walks with our dog around Snug Harbor. Most evenings we enjoyed a drink on the front porch watching the sun set and enjoying the silence. Our dog Buddy loved the freedom to roam and explore.The best part was the perfectly stocked cabin. We did not want for a thing. When we arrived, there was a power outage in the area but Kimberly was easily accessible and kept us informed until we had power again. Having wifi meant we could check on work emails if we really needed to. We will be back again maybe in the fall to enjoy some of the colors. There are some cute restaurants nearby or the grocery store only 2-miles up the road. It would be hard to not enjoy yourself here. Our only suggestion would be to install some screens on the doors so you can enjoy the breezes at night without a moth invasion. A charming cabin indeed.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Oddly enough, we have never thought about the screen doors. Great idea! We will consider that soon. I am glad you had a great time at Sadie's Retreat!

Sadie's Retreat Review

Sadie's Retreat Review
  • 4 of 5
The cabin was very nice, situated in a good area with a great view of chimney rock. The gravel driveway did prove to be a challenge on rainy days, the car almost couldn't make it up the driveway. I also recommend password protecting the wireless internet router in the cabin for future guests who need to access sensitive info (bank accounts, credit card accounts) over the internet. I also recommend bleaching the shower curtain in the bathroom as there was a bit of mildew on it. Finally, a large skillet would be a nice addition to the kitchen. Aside from those things, I enjoyed my stay very much and would recommend this property to others.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was ideally located to do activities in the area, especially Chimney Rock State Park. It was well equipped and we all enjoyed the great porch. We were not able to find a good access point to Lake Lure to let our dogs enjoy the water. As the house was located on the curve of the road it seemed isolated, even though there were houses next to it. The house on one side is for sale and not occupied.

Owner's Response: For future renters - your pets can swim along the river that feeds into Lake Lure. You can access it along 64/74 in Chimney Rock. We like to bring Sadie to the Tiki bar, have a burger, and watch her swim. :)
