+++++++++

This cozy log cabin in Lake Lure, North Carolina, embraces you from the moment you enter - any time of year. Whether it's morning coffee on the porch, watching the sunset over the mountains from the deck, enjoying the beach on a sunny summer day at Mirror Lake or Lake Lure, or cuddling in front of the fire on a winter's eve, you are encouraged to catch your breath and relax in a tranquil, natural setting in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps the window seat or the hammock will encourage you to indulge in a good book or a well-deserved nap. Enjoy lunch on either screened porch. We are pet friendly!

NOTE: Please read the descriptions under each of the photos. This cabin is not on the lake.

PICK YOUR SEASON

Springtime brings the cabin's great show of azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. From the deck during the summer watch the hummingbirds and bluebirds by day and the fireflies in the evening. The variety of trees provides a colorful, wondrous autumn. Winter mountain views are majestic.

CABIN FEATURES

Lovingly furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and rustic pieces, the great room has a fireplace, cathedral ceiling, skylights, and ceiling fans. TV, VCR, DVD player, a large collection of movies, satellite TV, WiFi, and board games provide many choices for entertainment.

About Anne

The pups and I enjoy walks and play time, both at the cabin and at home. Hard to tell which of us gets more enjoyment our of our daily morning walks.

I'm a former high school teacher and college professor. For the last 20 years I've been with a software company where I do training and customer support.

The cabin is a labor of love, and it's an enjoyment to share it with guests. I take great pride in providing a welcoming and comfortable retreat for you.

Anne purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Anne chose Lake Lure

Although only a two hour drive from Columbia, SC, the Lake Lure area is a world away from the city. The scenic vistas inspire and soothe the soul. There's something very special about hanging out at the cabin - whether on a porch or on the swing. Peaceful and welcoming.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a private setting on over a wooded acre on a gated road, yet it is convenient to the huge grocery store, restaurants, and the area attractions. Being in a gated community, guests have access to a private lake with swimming beach and a scenic picnic area along the river. The town of Lake Lure with a large town beach is only a 15 min. drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Anne,

We really enjoyed the peace, quiet, and getting back to the simple things in life at your cabin. It is very obvious that you work very hard to make sure your guests are supplied with anything they could possibly need. The kids had a wonderful time and enjoyed games and movies that are available. We look forward to coming again to your lovely cabin. Thanks a million! Helen, Kim, Derrick & Kids

Manchester Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at the Manchester Cabin. It was very pet-friendly which was important to us. The cabin was very comfortable and homey. We had everything we needed for a peaceful and pleasant stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

1st Trip and a Great one!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the cabin. We love the area but were here to see the Breweries in Ashville. We love the

Lake Lure area and all the sites. It would take a couple of weeks and many visits to see it all. Their is so much to do and see for the whole family. Our pets enjoyed it as did we. Thanks again!

5th trip to the cabin

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. This was our fifth trip to the cabin. This should give anybody reading this a great deal of comfort to know that this is a wonderful, well equipped cabin in a convenient location to the amenities of Riverbend as well as Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, and Rutherfordton. It's also a very short drive to Hendersonville and Asheville. Many outdoor activities, scenic attractions, groceries, and a terrific selection of dining options. Anne has thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Thanks again...we'll be back soon!

Gave 5 Stars Because It Does Not Allow Me To Give 6

  • 5 of 5

My 2 Springer Spaniels and I have stayed at several pet-friendly rental properties over the years and Manchester Cabin is the best one, yet. I was looking for pet-friendly location at a warmer location than PA to work from for the week. The WiFi was key as well as the fenced yard. The pictures do not do justice to the size of the fenced yard and my boys had a ball playing in the yard, going on long walks through the neighborhood and hiking on the Donald Ross Nature Trails. The cabin is fully stocked with everything you could need including firewood. Satellite Dish TV with plenty of channels, so, you are not going to miss your favorite show or the big game. A large library of books, DVDs, and VHS tapes also on-site for your enjoyment. A nice, large Ingles supermarket just 10 minutes away. Three golf courses within 5 miles of the cabin. I played Rumbling Bald where they filmed some of 'Dirty Dancing' at the 16th hole. Great course at a great price. Plenty of restaurants, post office, library, family entertainment locations all within in short drive from the cabin on the way to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. I also liked that the cabin is very private with great mountain views from the deck and, yet, there are neighbors around so it is not that remote. That comes in handy as the one night there was 4" of snow and the property association came around before noon and plowed the road. I did not have to clear the snow off the car that morning because I used the car port. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about the cabin and Anne made the whole process truly enjoyable even following up with me during my stay to make sure everything was OK. A great cabin, pet-friendly, WiFi, great location, wonderful and attentive owner.....already planning a return trip next year as Buddy, Jake and I hope to be repeat customers.

Loved our

  • 5 of 5

Angel (my Belgian Sheepdog) and I loved our "girls' weekend" away, just the two of us. The cabin is so cozy and spacious, well appointed for humans and canines alike. We loved the decks and porches, and having a nice fire one night. The kitchen had everything we needed, with a wonderful grocery store within an easy distance. We celebrated Angel's 12th birthday with a steak dinner! We loved the walks and the trails, and Angel looked for deer on every time out! Peaceful, quiet, and so totally beautiful - it was the perfect get away. Next time, I will have to bring the husband too, as he would love it!

Romantic Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Manchester Cabin more than once but this time was special...it was our honeymoon. We brought our Shih Tzu (it is his favorite vacay place) and he was in heaven! Big fenced backyard to explore and two screened in porches, it is a dog's dream....We dined at LaStrada by the fire and stayed the second night to relax together with homemade soup, movie, and a fire. We traveled to beautiful Black Mountain for a day of shopping and exploring. The cabin is always immaculate and so comfortable and inviting. In our humble opinion, there is truly no better place in Lake Lure to stay!
