My husband and I just got back from a nine night stay. We needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. My husband works 70+ hours a week and wanted to vacation in a quiet place this year. (Last year we went to Disney.... not quiet, lol). The cabin is simply beautiful. It is located far enough away from the main road, but close enough to groceries, gas and anything you may need. The town of Bat Cove is darling. We walked around the quaint little shops, played mini-golf, had lunch in a little cafe and topped it off with an ice cream cone. Chimney Rock is close by too. We took the boat tour of Lake Lure, I would recommend that as well, we loved it. Back to the cabin.... We took advantage of the little wreck center; fooseball, basketball and ping pong. The lake is a walk, but worth it. A nice little private area to picnic, canoe or just walk around. The cabin has everything listed and more. We took advantage of the gas grill almost nightly. The front and back porches are wonderful to sit and read or just to rest and clear your mind. I would highly recommend this beautiful cabin to almost anyone. Families with children would love it. A nice yard for tossing a frizbee, playing croquet, passing a football or running around playing tag. Couples wanting quiet time away from it all, this is perfect. I can't say enough about the owners communication and response to our needs. If you're looking for a long weekend getaway or a nice long vacation in the mountains of NC, this would be the perfect cabin to rent.
