I am Marshall Seay pictured here with my wife, Lori Jill at a South Carolina Gamecocks football game. We are in the construction business.We have built many log homes ,over western NC , and the upstate SC..... We thought that it would be nice to build a vacation getaway , not too far from Greenville , SC. We offer it to others as a vacation rental , when we are not using it...It has been a great experience and we enjoy our times at the cabin.If you get up there and fall in love with the place , as many have ,we can help you find just the right place and build you one...This has happened several times ,so visit at your own risk ! You may not want to leave..

Enjoyed the house - large with lots of beds and in a nice community with access to a private lake, beach, and river walk. There are little details that would bring up the star rating: provide more than half rolls of toilet paper (we were told to bring extra toilet paper by the owner); provide dish washing detergent; provide a couple of laundry detergent packets; provide a notebook with details about the property to include use of amenities within the community. The biggest issue isn't likely to impact anyone else, but the deck was stained the day of (or day before) our arrival and was still wet. The deck still had wet spots and had a strong smell throughout out stay - thus, it wasn't ideal for use.
We first arrived, the first thing my husband and I noticed, was this house is a solid build. No corners were cut on this home. As we walked inside, the temperature was perfect. It was a hot summer day but nice and cool inside. I thought this is too good to be true. Ofcourse, me being a mom, I checked for cleanliness. Oven clean, fixtures clean and sills..... wait for it, CLEAN! Wow! Next surprise, there was food in the cabinet. Spices, basics, cleaning supplies, everything you could imagine to cook with, ice in the fridge, even some starter toiletries. There were games for the grandkids and adults. Even umbrellas for a rainy day. I was amazed at how much thought went into making sure all the necessities were taken care of, to make your vacation seem like home. Now, I'm sure that some things may have been left behind from other vacationers, I don't know. So, I would say, don't expect it all to be the same for everyone. Maybe we were just lucky? I'd like to think not :)
We even decided to stay another day and they were able to accommodate us, only because there was an opening. We sat on the back porch at night watching the Lightening bugs and listening to the frogs and deer calls. This is a private lot so no noisy neighbors. It was very quiet and secure.
If there was one thing that I could find wrong, it would be, that there need to be hand rails for getting out of the shower and jacuzzi. My mom came up for 2 days and needed assistance. There was plenty of room for a manual wheelchair for someone with partial mobility disabilities. Furniture and beds soft.
The price for the stay was right in our range and everything was included. I had searched many in the same area but those places added cleaning fees, hot tub fees, pool fees and other fees that just made it seem like they didn't want people to stay there. This is the perfect price for its location. They obviously did their homework. This is the whole package for our family. Cheaper and cleaner than any hotel. We even rode by the locations of a few other homes in riverbend that were on home away. From the road, for us, the other houses didn't look as strongly built as this one. We come from a long line of construction builders and appreciate good quality. We will be staying here next summer, hopefully if it's not booked. Maybe I shouldn't have given such a good review. Dang, now everyone is going to want to stay here. "Lol" seriously, this is a hidden treasure. ~The Kovac Family.. enjoy
We love this cabin and the surrounding area of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. Stayed here several times and enjoy it more each time. Great cabin with lots of space. The owners take great care of the place and want us to enjoy it as much as they do. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy a mini vacation.
This is a delightful, classic cabin in the woods. It has plenty of room and is laid out in a very efficient way. The location is ideal, giving a sense of seclusion without feeling isolated. The Lake Lure area is beautiful at any time of the year. The owner truly wants you to have an enjoyable stay. When we couldn't get the gas logs to work, he immediately called the repairman to come out. Since he couldn't get there until the morning of our departure, the owner offered us a partial refund. He's a class act.
We had a wonderful time in Lake Lure. Our cabin was big and roomy! Plenty of room for 8 people. The kitchen had everything we needed and the charcoal grill was a bonus! We had the fireplace going non stop. (We are from Florida, ha ha) The cabin was a short drive to Dupont State Park and Pearson waterfalls. The Christmas tree was a perfect touch!! I highly recommend staying at this cabin. Our family had a wonderful time and will he back again!!
Overall was very happy with the cabin. Spacious, new, clean, great amenities. A few things reasons I did not give it a 5 star but they in all are pretty minor......It may have been an oversight on my part but there was no laundry detergent or extra toilet paper/soap/etc.....Didn't realize till after the fact. No large garbage can outside to place the trash, and the remote to the fireplace was not working. I probably could have figured it out manually but didn't want to risk. Again, minor things that I could have had cleared before hand but I would definitely stay here again.
Note that Mountain areas can be tricky with regard to cell phone service. We are in an area where the signal is great..
