About The Owner

Hi, I’m Suzie Haupt. I have dreamt of living in a log cabin since 1956 when my family vacationed in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. Then, in 1959 when we rented our cabin on Lake Wallenpaupack, my new dream became to live in a log cabin on a lake!

Why The Owner chose Lake Lure

I moved to the coast of North Carolina in 1991 and found that I very much missed the mountains and fresh water swimming. Thus began my search for the perfect lake to retire to. In 2005 I discovered Mirror Lake and fell in love with it. The exquisite views and mild water temperatures from May through October offer me more pleasure than I ever dreamed of.

Until I am able to retire and move permanently into “WHATAVIEW” I’d like to share my dream with you. You won’t be disappointed! Please call if you have any questions.

What makes this cabin unique

This part of western North Carolina is simply pristine; it is so beautiful that just sitting on the deck watching the changing light on the lake and the clouds seems itself a past-time.

The majesty of the mountains and waterfalls in the area around Lake Lure are so picturesque that they appear to be torn from the pages of National Geographic.

From shopping and fine dining to golf and fishing, there is something for everyone here... oh, except for folks who like traffic noise, we don't have any of that.

What A View---What A Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been more perfect. Cabin was spotlessly clean upon arrival, everything for a relaxing stay was provided. Our group was 3 generations and all enjoyed what the cabin, the lake and the nearby activities offered for us all. Wonderful lake swimming, beach and river access within steps of the cabin. We enjoyed the fresh air from the screen porch area, also the air conditioning on the hotter and humid times following a rain storm. Canoeing, zip line adventure, swimming and hiking were fun and relaxing for the entire age range--10 to 60+. Susie's beautiful cabin is a true "keeper" on the re-rental list. Thanks for sharing your Lake Lure cabin.

Great reunion for three generations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (with our 9 and 26 -year-old grandsons and their parents) had a terrific one-week reunion here. There was so much to do in the area for everyone with zip lining, boating, the falls on the creek nearby, and so much more -- not to mention the rock prospecting museum that our 9 year old still talks about. The views from the cabin are breathtaking, the kitchen well equipped and all very clean. We had a great time bonding and enjoying each day. No one wanted to leave! We would definitely return!

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed how spacious the home was.Everyone had there own floor.We were 3 couples and it was like we had our own private oasis. The views from the huge decks are amazing. Comfortable furnishings and well appointed kitchen. The lake was a

joy to boat on. We had it to ourselves that weekend. Very private. High in the mountains.
