About Kimberly Christenbury

I am a real estate agent in Charlotte, NC. I am happily married, with 2 beautiful kids. My husband and I visited Lake Lure on a vacation in 2006, and fell in love with the area. After that visit, we decided to begin looking for a cabin of our own. When we found Sadie's Retreat, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for! It has all the charm of a mountain getaway, but located close to all the activities that Lake Lure has to offer.

Kimberly Christenbury purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kimberly Christenbury chose Lake Lure

Lake Lure is such a beautiful location. It has both the mountains, and the lake area. When we visited Lake Lure in 2006, we just couldn't get over all it had to offer. The mountains, lake, hiking, fishing, boating, shopping, great restaurants, vineyards, and much more! We decided that we had to share this location with others. We searched for just the right cabin for over a year. When we found 'Sadie's Retreat' we just knew we had found the perfect place. The view was so amazing, and the front porch allows you to relax from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay here at Sadie’s Retreat. Thank you for allowing us to bring our dogs as this made for a ‘homey’ atmosphere for us. The kitchen was stocked well and the bedrooms were comfortable. The best part had to be the frton porch with its beautiful view of the mountains. The temperatures were pefect to allow us to sit outside and enjoy God’s wonders. The only things we didn’t see were the deer everyone talks about!

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The long weekend getaway at this location was perfect. From the economical price, to the amenities within the cabin (satellite, internet, etc), to the deer in the front yard across the street each morning and evening, it fully met our expectations.

The kitchen was stocked with all needed utensils and accessories (even the corkscrew) and the bathroom was stocked with all the towels and toiletries needed.

I even got a chance to play some Tiger Woods golf on the Xbox. :-)

All communications were handled expediently and directions were accurate. The location of the cabin was convenient to Chimney Rock village and park, Lake Lure beach and lake access, as well as restaurants and the nearby Ingles.

I highly recommend a stay at this site.

Clean, comfortable and quiet.

The cottage is very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sitting room well furnished.

The cottage is located in a quiet area and is close to the Marina and the shops at Chimney Rock.

Love it and the location.

  • 4 of 5

The driveway with the loose gravel was a challenge had to back out and come in the opposite direction. Wanted to grill for my husband for his birthday good thing I looked at the grill before going it is not a grill I would cook on. It needs to be replaced in my opinion. Need longer chains on the fans so you can turn off or down when lights are on in the living area. Otherwise I would rent again. Very nice

Adorable cabin, great location and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We came down with our two dogs to spend a long weekend with our son who is in college in NC. The cabin was great, had everything we needed. We enjoyed visiting Lake Lure and Asheville.
