Review Title: Fun, Beautiful cabin

Date of arrival: 23Mar2012

My Review:


I can categorically state that we enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the cabin!

The cabin is beautiful, has great amenities (including a small waterfall about 50 feet from the cabin), and my family and I throughly enjoyed ourselves.

One of the things that most impressed me though was the attention to detail with our reservation right up to the packet of information we received just prior to our stay.

Scrapbooking, Relaxation, adventure, so much fun!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had! I'm a passionate scrapbooker and decided that some friends and I should escape to do a scrapbooking retreat. I found this wonderful home and fell in love with it! It had plenty of space for us to have our own rooms. A huge table for us to scrap and additional table top for all our supplies... When I saw the great game room below I thought my teen girls would probably love their own mini vacation with some of their friends. There was a total of 4 ladies and 4 teens. We hardly heard a peep from the kids! They were too busy hanging out below, in the hot tub and exploring the grounds with it's winding creek and mini waterfall... The community also has a lake and private rapids which made for some fabulous pictures that I can't wait to scrapbook! The wrap around porch with it's many rocking chairs was a peaceful outing to watch all the hummingbirds fly around it. The kids also enjoyed the fire pit that allowed us to build a pretty nice size fire.... the smores were yummy!! They even provide boots in different sizes to go and explore the creek so you would not get dirty or wet! On our way home we decided to visit Chimney Rock which was only 15min away... it was a sight to see. I can't wait to come back! The next time, it will be for more then 3nights!! :)

Thanks for everything!

A perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four children (9-13) and 5 adults totally enjoyed our vacation at Redbird and the activities at and around Lake Lure. We stayed 6 nights and ate our evening meals in and spent the days having various adventures that were convenient to our location. We managed to go tubing, horseback riding, zip lining, and white water rafting in the five days available. There was plenty for the kids to do at the cabin with the creek on the property and games on the lower level. Each of the three families had a floor to themselves.

A Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Eleven members of my wife's family rented the house for the weekend to take part in the Lake Lure Olympiad. Having three nice bedrooms with king size beds was perfect for our three different families. We have stayed in other places where the bedrooms were not equal and deciding who got what room was awkward. Nothing like that this time. The loft was great for the younger kids and there was plenty of room for the older kids to spread out. We enjoyed the hot tub and the game room. The house was clean and well kept. The owner was great to work with. We had a wonderful time.

Ready to return!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. The house was so inviting and comfortable; the well-stocked kitchen was helpful. Access to the lake and nature walk there which took us to the Broad River, the fishin' hole, the creek near the house made this location a truly "back to nature experience". We enjoyed canoeing , fishing, hiking and just "being" for a few days. The game room was lots of fun, too! Sitting on the porch anytime was so very relaxing.Proximity to Lake Lure restaurants, Ingles grocery store, and Chimney Rock, etc. were bonuses. The owner was very patient with our phone calls! Overall, we had a wonderful adventure in a beautiful setting (inside & outside)!

Roomy, nice and fun

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing time visiting Lake Lure/Chimney Rock. Our cabin was spacious with lots of extras-hot tub, air hockey, foosball,hammock, a wonderful wrap around deck where we had coffee and watching hummingbirds, a nicely stocked kitchen and a lake/beach/river to tube nearby. Trek up the streets to get to the log cabin was a little rough but we managed. So many things to do in the area-can't wait to come back and do it all again! Red bird retreat was wonderful!

Great Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs came from all parts of the country for a family reunion. We found this to be an excellent cabin, very comfortable and well maintained.

Our family especially likes water activities and river runs, so a pleasant surprise occurred on our third day when the Lake Lure dam increased the outflow into the Broad River. The gated community of which this property is a part has private downstream access points to the river, and we had great fun in the rapids using the river floats provided by the Redbird Retreat owners.

Internet access via Wi-Fi was at times intermittent.

Overall we were very pleased with the accommodations!
