This cozy log cabin embraces you from the moment you enter - any time of year. Whether it's morning coffee on the porch, savoring 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, sigh, and relax in a tranquil, natural setting in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps the window seat will beckon to you to indulge in a good book or a well-deserved nap. Enjoy lunch in one of the two screened in porches.
Springtime brings the cabin's great show of azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. Share the deck during the summer with the hummingbirds by day and the fireflies in the evening. The variety of trees provides a colorful, wondrous autumn. Winter mountain views are majestic.
Broadband (high speed internet) and WiFi are convenient for checking out local attractions and keeping in touch.
Located in Riverbend, a gated community, guests have use of its amenities just a 5 minute drive from the cabin: Mirror Lake (a very pretty,e private lake with swimming beach), covered picnic pavilion overlooking the lake, easy access to the Broad River for fishing, swimming, or adventuring, and a scenic picnic area along the river. (The cabin is not on the lake.)
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. Sleeping accommodations offer two bedrooms (one king; one queen), and a futon in the great room converts to a double bed.
Two full baths (linens provided). Ceiling fan in each room. Central heat and air.
The kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster over, coffee maker, crock pot, blender, pots and pans, utensils, and dishes.
Favorite spots are the deck and the two screened porches. A hammock chair, cedar porch swing, gas grill, and patio furniture are provided for your enjoyment. The double hammock under the trees is a great spot to read.
Try tubing on the Broad River, have a zip line adventure, shopping in the charming villages of Chimney Rock, Bat Cave, Rutherfordton, or Black Mountain, taking a narrated boat tour of Lake Lure, visiting the Biltmore Estate, or playing at the water park at Lake Lure. Three golf courses are very close by.
A variety of restaurants are within a 5 to 20 minute drive, and the cabin 'handbook' includes menus from many of them.
Well behaved pets are very welcome! The deck is enclosed with a railing and connects to a fenced-in yard.
No smoking at all, please.

The 'Boys' and I enjoy walks and play time, both at the cabin and at home. Daily walks help me to appreciate nature with new eyes every morning. I'm a former teacher and college professor and currently do training and customer support for a software company.
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. The area offers a variety of activities. My personal favorite is walking with the dogs in the morning from the cabin to Amy's Ridge to marvel at the view.
The cabin is in a private setting on over an 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.
