Lake Lure Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, loft; sleeps 10

It is with great pleasure we welcome you to 'Dreamcatcher'! Peacefully tucked in lush woods whose porch overlooks a meandering stream running right down its side. Dreamcatcher is a non-smoking, dog friendly cabin that sleeps ten very comfortably with two kings, one queen, and 4 twin beds. Cozy enough for two, but its thoughtful layout makes it easy for large groups. You can choose to stay here all day to relax and play, or plan your day to any one of the many activities Lake Lure and the surrounding area has to offer.

Located in the planned community of gated Riverbend, here you will have access to its two small, private lakes with beach and picnic area. The French Broad River is there for fishing, tubing, or canoeing/kayaking. Around the corner you'll even find your chance to brave a zip line!

It is always our sincere hope that Dreamcatcher not just meet, but even exceed our guest's expectations. For that reason we gave great thought when breathing life into our already lovely log home. Open beam construction and decorated with special detail featuring three large bedrooms, three large full bathrooms (one on each floor), basement playroom with air hockey and fooseball table, two televisions with satellite/DVD players, loft with additional gathering area, family room with wood burning fireplace and fully stocked kitchen. A mud room with washer/dryer and utility sink offers additional access to the three sided deck with grill. In the basement you will even find rubber boots in various sizes lined up at the back door just begging to be thrown on for an adventure outside. Plenty of fun to be had by all!

Lake Lure is gorgeous with rock faces to the water and boasts a fun beach/water park with many lifeguards on duty in season. Play golf at one of the three courses nearby, play tennis or basketball near the lake, or rent a boat and enjoy skiing, tubing or knee boarding while learning new techniques from your personal certified instructor. Lovely cruises are a wonderful way to view Lake Lure's beauty and leave every hour at the beach's marina. Nearby Chimney Rock is a fun little town offering unique shops, putt putt by the river, restaurants and hiking at Chimney Rock is spectacular! Not far is Asheville where, among other things, you might tour Biltmore Estates and Winery. The beauty of having your space here is the mountains offer something for everyone!

We had a WONDERFUL summer stay at the Dream Catcher!! The cabin is beautiful and has every amenity you could possibly need. Our two young sons loved the private creek and waterfall as well as the air hockey and foosball tables. We had a ball roasting hot dogs and making s'mores around the firepit and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings at Mirror Lake. We took advantage of our surroundings and hiked Chimney Rock, drove to Linville Caverns, went gem mining and took a Lake Lure tour. We were very busy and loved coming back to the cabin at night to relax. Dream Catcher lends itself to a very family-oriented vacation with lots of time for talking and bonding.

An amazing weekend with girlfriends and pups!

  • 5 of 5

My Life Group with Elevation Church in Chatlotte, NC was looking to get away from the city lights of the city and find a place to relax and reflect. Dream Catcher was absolutely PERFECT! 6 girls and a couple of dogs made priceless memories. We explored the wilderness, put some Girl Scout skills to use and rested our heads in a beautiful cabin. Neal was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay. The cabin was fully stocked with anything you could possibly need plus more! It was clean, spacious and the views are to die for! The most enchanting part of the cabin was the subtle creek along side the house. My only suggestion for others who want to experience time at Dream Catcher is to just know before hand that the cabin is extremely remote and cell service is limited if not non existent. Otherwise, Dream Catcher is a DREAM! If our group ever visits Lake Lure again this will definitely be our first choice!

This home is very nice and private. Plenty of room for all eight of us. Loved the waterfall and stream running through the property. A lot to do in the area of Lake Lure. Owner is great at communicating with any questions about the property.

Perfect House for Our Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family - we had ourselves, 2 children and 2 grandchildren and 2 dogs. Each family had space on every level with their own bathroom - it was awesome. The kitchen is very well equipped for what you might need. We brought groceries and then shopped for perishables at Ingles (which is very close). The house is in a great location - not too high up a mountain and close to all activities. We golfed, climbed Chimney Rock, white water rafted, boated on the lake, and ziplined (Canopy Ridge - which is not but a mile away!).

The house had plenty of towels and extra blankets - the a/c works great in the house!! Front load washer and dryer right on the main level. Porches on three sides of the house make morning coffee and afternoon drinks so relaxing. Buy some charcoal and grill out. We had all our meals at the house. No matter where you are outside, you hear the waterfall and the creek running. The boots in the playroom are a great addition and make it easy to get out there and wade in the creek - just follow the path. Night time is filled with the sounds of cicadas and you get to watch a beautiful firefly show out front! Buy some wood and make a fire in the fire pit and enjoy the surroundings. The yard is large enough for your dog to roam around or if you want a good workout, take your pooch on a great walk up some of the neighboring roads!

The owners are great and provide great directions and are so fast to answer any questions you have. We had a true family summer vacation at a great house.

Dream Catcher

  • 5 of 5

This home truly lives up to her name! Beautiful home and surroundings. Absolutely adorable. We enjoyed our week vacation here. There were so many wonderful day trips to do. Evenings gathered on the back porch discussing our adventures and listening to the creek was wonderful! We are already discussing our next trip for sure.
