Overview

Lake Lure Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If it's a water experience that you are looking for, this is it! Nestled among the native rhododendrons and dogwoods of the Appalachian Mountains sets this unique little cabin. Built in the early 1970’s, it is one of the original lakefront homes on Lake Lure. It is truly an exceptional find in that it is set on a 14-acres at the head of Sunset Cove. Also, it is built partially out over the water, which allows an unobstructed view from the porch directly down the cove to the main channel, Chimney Rock, and most importantly the sun setting over the mountains. It is one of the finest views on the lake.

Let us take you back to the earlier, unhurried days of Lake Lure and Hickory Nut Gorge area. Leave the busy life behind and return to the days of real relaxation and rest. You can lounge on the deck in the warm summer sun reading a good book, fish from the dock as the water licks at your feet, swim in the cool refreshing water, go kayaking down the cove, or just sit and watch the sun sparkle and move across the water and then sink behind the mountains.

In its own right, our cabin and dock/bridge are famous - if you're a movie buff. In 1983, several scenes from the movie, Firestarter, were filmed on the property. The most memorable being when Charlie and her dad were captured by 'the Shop' while crossing our very own dock. The film featured an all-star cast with Drew Berrymore, Martin Sheen, & George C. Scott.

The dock/bridge mentioned above extends all the way across the end of the cove(approx. 100 feet)and is truly unique. The entire bridge is ideal for the fishing enthusiast. For your enjoyment, we have 2 Sea Otter kayaks are on hand as well as a canoe, and 12 ft pontoon paddle boat - all ready to explore Sunset Cove and Lake Lure. Life jackets are on hand as well.

We invite you to come and enjoy your own private get-a-way at Papa Bob’s Cabin. It is a one-room cabin with a large private bathroom/changing area. You will find a queen bed and a queen size sleeper sofa. There is a loft with two twin beds. Appliances include a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and coffee maker. There is central heat and air and a Weber grill. So, bring a good book, your swimsuit, your fishing pole and come relax.

*******DUE TO TOWN REGULATIONS WE CAN ALLOW 4 adults OR 2 adults & 4 CHILDREN********

PONTOON BOAT AVAILABLE: We have a 1999 Voyager 21' pontoon boat available at your option to rent with our home! It has a 90 hp 4 stroke engine. The pontoon rental is $195/day with a 3 day minimum in season. We have an offseason weekend rate of $295. We have a weekly rate of $995. NC sales tax will be added to all rates. Additional fees may apply in the offseason. It is a great way to get views of the lake and surrounding area; a sunset cruise, or go to Bayfront Grille by boat for lunch or dinner.

*****PLEASE NOTE: In 2006, Lake Lure has passed a regulation that makes it unlawful for boats with commercial licenses (i.e.our guests) to tow skiers or tubes, etc behind the boat.**************

By the way, the cabin's property adjoins 'Ledfords Landing' which is VRBO listing # 28758. Combine the properties if you are looking for a large extended area for a family reunion or gathering (together sleeps 14-16). The large grass field on the cabin's property is ideal for games and gatherings. There is a volleyball net and whiffle balls and bat you are welcome to use but we suggest you bring your own glove. Whiffle ball with the kids is one of our favorites!

About The Owner

Hi,we are Tom, Jenny, Samuel and Isaac Cox. Our Lake Lure cabin has been in our family for over 45 years. We love Lake Lure because it makes you feel that you are a million miles away and the views and peace and quiet turn our focus on the bigger picture, away from the daily details that pull at us. We invite you to enjoy our cabin. Come and relax!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1971

Why The Owner chose Lake Lure

Jenny here, my father bought this property in the 1960's. It has remained in our family and there are precious memories here.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is truly a waterfront experience. Literally built over the waters edge.

Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay in your Cabin. Our Honeymoon was so relaxing and most days were spent sitting on the dock and enjoying the view!!! Traveled the lake in the pontoon... and did some fishing. Thank you for the special touches for our Honeymoon stay. We hope to return in the future.

Magical weekend at the lake

  • 5 of 5

We can't even begin to thank you for the indescribable weekend we had at the cabin. My son celebrated his 11th birthday there and we will back. (Working on that now) The owners were easy to work with and extremely accommodating. We loved the kayaks and watching our son delight in his newly found independence. The family fishing rivalry was entertaining as we all caught many fish and threw them back. We saw a huge turtle the size of a trash can lid swimming under the dock. And even though it was still cold....the kids all delighted in jumping in and playing in the water. To my amazement, the bed was extremely comfortable and every amenity was supplied. Maybe this isn't 5 star hotel accommodations but in my family this is BETTER. Thank you for sharing your dream property with us.

Lovely spot, lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Lake Lure multiple times yearly for the past 4-5 years, and this weekend spent at Papa Bob's cabin was one of our favorite trips. Jenny was so easy to communicate with and even rescheduled our weekend after I had a work issue. Our family of four (son, 15 and daughter, 13) were all captured by the charm of this lovely Sunset Cove in Lake Lure as soon as we passed the entrance to the driveway. You felt like you were being "tucked into" a haven as serenity as the driveway winded down to the cutest little cabin. We checked in mid-day and I was awestruck by THE VIEW! THE VIEW! My favorite view at Lake Lure is the middle of the Lake looking back at "The Sleeping Lady of Lake Lure". It is the most beautiful view of the Lake and Papa Bob's cabin is perfectly situated to enjoy that view. The cabin is perfect for a small family of four. It is simple, rustic and cozy. Our kids are older, but they still loved the loft, and we were all quite comfortable. The kids went through a "shell shock" initially as there was limited WIFI signal inside the cabin. We had an unseasonably cold weekend, and they did not brave going outside on the cold deck long just for the sake of an internet signal. So, guess what? After they recovered from the shock of being "unplugged", we actually got to SPEND TIME TOGETHER! We went to the nearby Ingles' and stocked up on all our favorite foods. We watched movies, we played some of the games that were in the cabin, we talked and laughed and slowly but surely we all relaxed. It was so peaceful to sit and look at the VIEW! We went for a hike/walk on the beautiful 14 acre lot and surrounding area and then came back and had hot chocolate. We hung out of the beautiful bench on the expansive dock, and then we went back inside and had more hot chocolate. :) We went to Asheville for a birthday dinner one night and enjoyed the snow covered mountains and road sides along the way through Apple Valley. We were all ready to get back to the cabin afterwards to get back into "relaxation mode" with another movie night and more family time. I drank hot tea and even took a nap while Dad played more board games. Our family enjoyed a perfect weekend there in Papa Bob's cabin and we look forward to booking another visit to this perfect spot at Lake Lure. We'd love to go back in the summer and enjoy some fishing from the dock bench, go back to Chimney rock, canoe in the morning and swim off the floating dock. We highly recommend this rental.

The BEST spot on Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Papa Bob's cabin where we had a wonderful week of swimming, kayaking and exploring the lake with the easy to use paddle boat. Every night we cooked out and enjoyed the beautiful sunset on rightfully named Sunset Cove. The ten acres leave plenty of room for volleyball and play room for kids. If your looking for a fun, relaxing vacation spot that's also close to Chimney Rock and Carl Sandburg's house (interesting and great walks), you'll love Papa Bob's. We were lucky this time to get to meet Jenny and her family as well as Papa Bob himself!

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We live close to Lake Lure and often take the pontoon boat tour so we were especially excited to actually stay right on the lake in this very comfortable cabin. The kitchen is very well equipped, the queen bed super comfy and the kayaks, canoe and pontoon pedal boat so much fun. The lake view is terrific, especially eating on the deck. Our grandkids came for the day and we played volleyball in the adjacent field. All in all a quiet and private getaway for adults and kids. We would definitely return for another stay!

Comfortable with all the right toys

  • 5 of 5

We finished our second stay at the cabin in August, and again really enjoyed it. This trip was a few well spent days for our anniversary. Great to have a small place that sits right in the water. Big deck, the swimming - noodling really - at the end of a quiet cove is the best, though the paddle boat is a close second! I can't imagine a prettier view than from Papa Bob's cabin. Thank for sharing!
