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 Asheville Area

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.

Sadie's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, cozy and complete is the way to describe this cabin. The house was comfortable and totally stocked for us when we arrived. So dog friendly too! It was close to all the attractions we intended to see. I would come and stay again without a doubt! Thank you for sharing such a nice place!

Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the cabin over Labor day. There was plenty of room, it was clean and the kitchen had all the amenities.

We enjoyed sitting on the porch relaxing, drinking coffee and taking in the amazing views of Chimney Rock. We loved walking our furbaby around Snug Harbor circle taking in the beautiful view of Lake Lure.

We had a wonderful weekend hiking the Triple Falls, wakeboarding on Lake Lure and walking around Chimney Rock.

Thank you for a great stay.

Overall, very good

  • 4 of 5

The steepness and structure of the driveway were a bit surprising. Our SUV handled it well, but it was rocky and uneven. Perhaps noting that for other renters would be beneficial.

Crisp, fresh smells

Very clean

Perfect size for our family of 4

No issues with electric or plumbing or AC.

House was very cool during our August stay

We greatly enjoyed our week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving a review for Sadie's Retreat. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We keep the driveway maintained but with the ton of rain we have gotten this summer, it will need attention again this fall. We appreciate your feedback! We hope to have you as our guests again!
