'BEAR NECESSITIES' LOG CABIN

Lake Lure House Rental Photos and Description

Relax on one of two porches of this log home and let your worries drift away in the breeze. Located in the Riverbend community of Lake Lure, NC this log home offers a quiet community with a private lake and beautiful scenery all around. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch and catch site of a white tailed deer or wild turkey.

This cozy log cabin sits just above the rambling Broad River below. Grab a raft and float leisurely down river or cast your line and catch one of the trout just off the bank. Evening brings the sounds of katydids and firefly shows. The variety of trees and birds provide a colorful and cheerful background.

Enjoy swimming and kayaking in Mirror Lake (a private lake with swimming beach and picnic facilities) or meander past the falls through the nature trails across from the beach. Relax in the community gazebo and watch the children slide down the river rocks into cool stream waters.

The cabin is beautifully appointed with antique reproductions, fireplace, ceiling fans, TV, VCR, DVD player and a large collection of movies and games. Sleeping accommodations offer two bedrooms (one queen and one full bed) with master bedroom on main floor and an additional full size futon in the upstairs loft, to easily accommodate sleeping for six. Two full baths - downstairs master bath features a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. All linens are provided. Central heat and air as well as washer and dryer provide all the comforts of home.

The kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator, freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, crock pot, pots and pans, utensils and dishes. There is a gas grill and patio furniture provided for outdoor relaxation.

Enjoy tubing on the Broad River, ziplining nearby, horseback riding, taking a narrated boat tour of Lake Lure, visit the Biltmore Estate (45 minutes away) hiking at Chimney Rock, and shopping in nearby villages. Children will enjoy the KidSense Hands On Children's Museum in nearby Rutherfordton. Grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants are all easily located in the town of Lake Lure. Three golf courses can be enjoyed within a 10 minute drive. Skiing, tubing, and local wineries are all within driving distance.

Well behaved pets are welcome. No smoking please.

This was a terrific cabin for five of us to get together for a week of rock climbing at Rumbling Bald. Super clean, super comfortable and with a full kitchen!

What a beautiful cabin! Everything in this rental is top notch! What you see in the pictures is what you get..and more! It is cozy and comfortable and located in a wonderful community. Very convenient to restaurants, grocery store, ziplining, shopping and Chimney Rock and about a 45 minute drive to Asheville. The cabin is well maintained, clean, and the kitchen has everything you need. I would definitely recommend it and definitely stay in it again if I visit that area.

Can't say enought about this cabin. The location was perfect,seemed to be in the middle of everything we wanted to do. Just a short drive to anywhere.The cabin was in GREAT condition, clean and comfortable. It was just my husband & I so we had plenty of room. The stairs to the other bedroom and loft are kinda steep so be careful if you have bad knees or small children. The kitchen was stocked with utensils, plates,wine glasses and some spices. The gas grill is another plus for this cabin. Thanks Dawn we will be in touch!!!

My family and I visited in July 2013 and we absolutely loved it! The pictures and descriptions of the house were exactly as promised. It was very clean and well maintained. Dawn answered my emails pretty quickly and the property manager (I cant remember his name) came by to check in with us and make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property. Although it rained throughout the week of our stay, we still enjoyed it. There was plenty to do and see. if you have the chance, make sure to visit Biltmore House while you're in the area. We utilized the gas grill at least 3 times and it worked great. We loved spending our evenings having a drink on the wrap-around porch listening to the sounds all around us. Try to rent a pontoon boat and enjoy Lake Lure, it was fun. Everyone we encountered was friendly. We would love to visit again. Thanks Dawn!
Owner's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay in spite of our rainy season this year! Hope to see you again next year.

Heaven on earth!

We have truly discovered a little piece of heaven on earth! The cabin itself was exquisite - beautifully decorated, conveniently located and emmaculate!! Loaded with everything we could possibly need. My two young children had so much fun playing in the river, watching the wild turkeys trot across the back yard and we LOVED the private lake. We discovered the inflatable kayak that the owners had for use in the crawl space and we had so much fun with it on the lake. We intertubed down the river too!! What a gorgeous location with the private lake and waterfall for the children to play in. Of course we loved Lake Lure and what a relaxed atmostphere is was - a couple of good resteraunts. Chimney Rock was a blast as well. Overall, I'd say it was the best vacation we've had and we will return many times! Thank you so much. You have a lovely place and make is such a sweet retreat for others.
