Lake Lure Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms/2.5 bath/Sleeps 9 (See paragraph that explains RATES)

Our cozy, log cabin, 'Camp-View Cabin ', was built Oct. 2004. It is still neat and clean; it looks new. It has lodge-style decor, and is set in a wooded neighborhood, with Lake Lure access. The open swim area is located a short walk (or drive) down a gravel road and past a quaint waterfall. There you will find a beautiful setting with docks, picnic tables, lounge chairs, and a kayak rack that holds two kayaks for your use.

The cabin is located 3 miles from the shopping towns of Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The dramatic Rocky Broad River flows alongside the town, where you can enjoy restaurants and shops, including an old general store, full of mountain-sytle gifts. Chimney Rock Park is right there in town (check out their website.)

Within an hour are such spots as Historic Hendersonville, culture-rich Asheville (home of the Biltmore Estate, The Grove Park Inn and Spa, and the Blue Ridge Parkway). Sliding Rock, many waterfalls, and hiking trails are also around the area for the nature lover.

Camp-View Cabin is located on property that was once a 100-acre youth camp, with its borders on one of the most scenic parts of Lake Lure. The rock-faced Rumbling Bald Mountains rise toward heaven from the meadow on the west side of 'camp', and can be seen from the window in our cozy loft.

In addition to the commonly seen fish, turtles, ducks, and squirrel, are deer and wild turkey, which roam freely in the camp. On rare occasion you may spot a raccoon, fox, bobcat or even a bear.

This cabin was built in 2004, with a vision that people might come here to escape the busy life back home and have time to enjoy the simple things - love, relationships, and God's beautiful creation. Enjoy!

About Randy and Beth Dillon

My wife and I moved to the Asheville area in 1992. We adore the mountains so much, that we decided to build a log home at the lake. We loved it so much that we could not share this alone. Our kids enjoy the lake during the summer months. We like to hike, camp, and bike as a family. This neighborhood where the cabin is located is great for all of these outdoor events. We know you will love our cabin as much as we do. Take care, Randy, Beth, Jared and Kaleigh.

Randy and Beth Dillon purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Randy and Beth Dillon chose Lake Lure

This property was once a youth camp. It has many features that bring back that feeling of being at 'camp'. Some of the orignial buildings are still there (the horse barn, the mess hall, the recreation hall, and some of the cabins). The swim area is wide-open and beautiful. It is set back just a bit from the big open lake and is a nicer place to swim and lay on the raft than places right on the lake, where the boats or going by. There is a floating dock in the middle, so people can swim out, jump and dive off, or sit and enjoy the beauty from there.

We rented this cabin for Thanksgiving, 07. The cabin is nicely decorated and immaculate. It exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating some milestones plus Thanksgiving, and all went perfectly. They supply paper products and condiments and I loved having the instructions on everything to put us at ease. The fireplace is wonderful and helps with the atmosphere. Rent with confidence.

Beautiful Property in a Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful place and enjoyed it very much. It was very well stocked with cookware and provided many extra things to use such as picnic coolers and jackets that you might have forgotten. It was just a short walk away from the lake and kayaks were available to explore. Everything was wonderful!

Wonderful cabin for my family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for 10 nights in early summer, 2016. We wanted a place to go to escape the usual hustle and bustle of every day life. I have two sons (10 and 7 years old) who loved the entire vacation. The cabin is in a great location. A short walk down a wooded gravel path will take you to a small cove on Lake Lure. It's perfect for walking straight into the lake or diving/jumping off the dock. The kids and adults loved just being in the water and swimming. There is a floating dock some distance away - a great and doable challenge for my kids. They enjoyed the challenge and little bit of freedom going out there. The cabin itself is in excellent shape and provides all the amenities needed for a stay. We bought our food for all 3 daily meals and had no problem cooking and eating there. Everything we needed was readily available. The sleeping arrangements were comfortable. Because we wanted to just relax, some days we sat around the cabin, talking, being outside, playing games, and watching TV. Outside the cabin, the location is great. With Chimney Rock just around the bend, we enjoyed the town, the park, and the hiking. We took our time in exploring the different areas and have excellent memories and photos of our time together. Around the other bend is Lake Lure - a charming and quaint town that was fun to be around and explore. Lake Lure Beach was open for the weekend and our kids loved the beach, the slides, and the water balloon area (note, we're from Florida where we have the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico beaches, our own pool, and access to water parks - so impressing these kids is impressive). Overall, we are very happy in picking this cabin to rent and visit for just under 2 weeks.

Originally when I was looking at other cabins in the area, I honestly underestimated the benefits of having Chimney Rock, the lake and the town of Lake Lure so close by. We didn't have to drive all over Western NC to explore and have a good time. This truly was an excellent cabin, in a great location, at the best time of year. It's a vacation we'll never forget. Thanks!

Cozy cabin, beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was the perfect location for my book club retreat. It comfortably slept 7 with 2 in each queen bed, 2 on the bunk bed (probably best suited for kids), and one on the fold out couch. We loved the 0.3 mi walk to the lake, reading by the fire, relaxing on the porches, and the easy access to hiking. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. A wonderful trip!

Additional information about rental rates

Tax Rate 11.75%

PLEASE understand:
* "extra guest charges" are not really "extra". We rent our cabin to 2 people and up to 12 people. We have a "couples special", so that we do not charge 2 people the same rate as 12 people or even 4 people. We have put a great deal of thought into what price is fair for each number of people. We have always had our different price increments since 2004. With this new format on the homeaway site, this is the closest way we have found to reflect the price that we have always quoted for your size group, and our prices have not changed much since then. It is important that you record the correct number of people coming so that you do not get charged attitional fees during your stay. Additional note: Paying by check is also an option, which we prefer, but are glad to accommodate you if you want to pay by credit card. Just let us know if you want to pay by check.
* One Night rentals are only allowed on certain nights, but you should always ask 828-776-8131 - normally on nights that are close and not booked OR nights we do not think will book for a 2-night+ rental.
We hope we can accommodate you.
