About the property


(no exceptions )

Relax and Unplug

This lovely lakefront log cabin is located in a quiet cove on beautiful Lake Adger, and just minutes from Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Village, and Chimney Rock State Park. It is offers the perfect place to relax and unplug (there is no television and the internet is not suitable for streaming).

Perfect for Biking

With its paved roads and beautiful natural surroundings, this is an ideal home to take an evening walk or bring your bikes for a challenging ride up and down the miles of paved roads of the community in the fresh mountain air and surrounded by exquisite scenery.

Canoe or Kayak from Private Dock

You will enjoy use of a canoe and 3 kayaks that are waiting on the private dock for this home. The Lake Adger public access site is about 2 miles from the cabin and you are welcome to bring your boat (contact us for size limitations, regulations, etc.). The lake is approximately 400 acres in size, offers great fishing (license required), and miles of pristine shoreline. Plus, it is only 13 miles from Lake Lure, in case you would want to launch your boat there.

Beautiful Log Cabin and Desireable Amenities

Whether you want to get away for a relaxing vacation or a long weekend, this beautiful log home offers all the comforts you would expect as well as those you would desire. When you enter through the front door, you see the open-concept living/dining/kitchen area. The vaulted ceiling and lakeside wall of windows add majesty to the living/dining area. The beams and loft make it also very comfortable.

On the main floor is a fully equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave, and coffee maker. There is also a wood-burning stone fireplace in the living room for cool or romantic evenings or quiet family time (sorry, no four-legged family members). Or step out through the French doors onto the deck for great views of the lake and a perfect place for a cup of morning coffee or tea.

The main level offers 2 additional bedrooms (both with double beds) and a large full bathroom in the hall. In the basement is the laundry area (washer/dryer) and life jacket storage.

Upstairs you will find a spacious loft complete with desk, futon, chair, and rocker. The master bedroom is adjacent with king-size bed, baby bed, and twin bed (in case you want younger children with you). There is a private bath with corner jetted tub for relaxing away the worries of the day.

There are wonderful views from every room of this house. You can even see the trees while in the loft bathtub.

Be Our Guest

Enjoy the natural surroundings, play on Lake Adger, or simply relax on the large covered porch, and sit on the swing for peace and serenity. Plus, this area and surrounding communities offer something for everyone. See the Amenities for just a sample of the area activities.

This home is perfect for every season. The lake is open year round and the beauty is constant. Pack your clothes, pick up some groceries (stores nearby), and then sit back, relax, and enjoy all the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Adger, and Lakefront Melody have to offer!

What a great getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Lakefront Melody and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay both times. The house is very spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The cove the house is located in is very private and just beautiful. We look forward to returning in the future.

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared Lakefront Melody with our son and his family during the Hurricane Matthew evacuation. We found it perfect for a family getaway and plan to return. Situated lakeside with a private dock, kayaks and canoe it was perfect for swimming, boating and fishing. The cabin was immaculately clean, well maintained and fully furnished for families. Of special note was the outstanding service provided by Carolina Properties before and during our stay. Valerie was a very proactive agent, seeing to every need and immediately responding to questions and concerns. Additionally she provided a wealth of information and advice on local attractions and events. All in all a great experience.

Nice House

  • 4 of 5

The house was big enough for our family of 5. We didn't really miss having a TV (wish the internet service was better - but they did tell us before hand that it would be slow). The house was clean. At the time of our visit the king bed in the master bedroom had no bed frame so the bed is just laying on the ground. Not sure why they wouldn't have a bed frame?? My kids loved swimming in the lake right off the dock and we also brought our own kayaks. Getting the kayaks down the hill to the dock was hard - at the end of the week we decided to kayak to the public boat dock to load up the kayaks. It took us about 1 hour to kayak there. Much better then trying to drag them up the hill to the driveway though. The climb up is pretty steep and there is a portion that has no stairs, making it harder to keep your footing. Also the driveway to the house is deeply rutted and has numerous potholes - our car would drag every time we came up or down the driveway. The driveway needs some gravel and to be regraded. Also I didn't see it listed in the description but you have to dispose of your own trash or get charged for them to dispose of it - just an FYI. There is plenty to do around the area, we went to: Chimney Rock, Dupont State Forest and the Biltmore. Plus did plenty of fishing, swimming and kayaking at the lake. I would recommend kayaking to the Green River from the lake. I would recommend this house to friends - with the hope that the driveway is fixed by the time they get there (as that would be my biggest complaint about the house).

Owner's Response: "We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Lakefront Melody. Thank you so much for the feedback. We now have a bed frame for the king size bed. We have also added several steps on the walk to the lake and are in the process of improving the driveway. Sorry you had to carry your kayaks down to the lake. We hope you also made use of the 3 kayaks and the canoe that we keep down at the dock. Once again, thanks for the suggestions. It is important to us that you enjoy your stay at our lake home and we hope you come again."
