This is a Beautiful New Log Home On The Nicest Private Cove On Lake Lure.
I have always loved log cabins. I lived in my first log cabin in Montana in 1972. There was no heat, nor running water. Except for the wood cook stove and the stream that ran past the cabin. My dog used to wake me in the mornings, in the winter, because his water bowl was frozen over,,,in the cabin. We bought our first log cabin in Chimney Rock in 1993. It was a one room, 450 square foot cute little place with no heat nor air conditioning. I have loved this area for many years and have always thought about the cabins on Grey Log Cove and thought how much fun it would be to have a cabin there. Well, as sometimes dreams do come true...I bought a lot there in 2012 and the dream of having a cabin there is finally coming together. I think this is one of the nicest log homes, on definitely the nicest cove on the Lake Lure.
Bob purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Bob chose Lake Lure
This is a very unique piece of property. It is right on the lake, on one of the nicest private coves on Lake Lure. You and your guests can take the canoe or kayaks out onto the cove for a nice peaceful paddle without having to get out onto the traffic of the Lake. Or if you choose, there are 8 restaurants, with nice bars, on the lake that you can canoe or kayak to. You can sunbath on the 32' long dock or the large wrap around deck. Staying at 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove' is an experience that you won't soon forget. There is also a full basement with it's own Bath and shower, as well as a LIVING ROOM, WITH FRIDGE, FLAT SCREEN TV, POOL TABLE, FOOS BALL TABLE, AIR HOCKEY TABLE, PING PONG TABLE, AND BEAN BAG TOSS.
What makes this Cabin unique
In building 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove' I wanted to add some of the flavor of the West and the time I spent living in Montana near Yellowstone National Park, as well as some of the influences of my years living in Santa Fe New Mexico. This cabin is be like nothing some people have ever seen before. I wanted to keep with a 'Lodge' theme and I think it has come together pretty well. One of the things I am most proud of is my Housekeeping staff. They are the best around. Also provided are on-site massage and baby sitting with advanced notice. Breakfast is also provided. So don't rush out for something to eat on your first morning here. Relax, have some COFFEE and ORANGE JUICE on the deck while the HAM AND EGGS are cooking on the stove. Then taste some of my Housekeepers fresh homemade JAM, on an ENGLISH MUFFINS. Made Exclusively for the Guests of the 'Lodge on Grey Log Cove'. Also provided is free popcorn and a variety of DVD movies and a new 42' flat screen TV for your at home evening entertainment. Also provided with the cabin's key is an 'Ingles Advantage' card. For discounts at the local grocery store. So they'll treat you like a local. I know there are lots of places to stay on Lake Lure, but I wanted to provide more of an 'experience' to your vacation than just a place to spend the night. I've tried to add some simple 'extras' and things that you don't get at a regular 'canoe paddle on the wall' type of rental unit.This is a new log cabin, that was completed in the spring of 2014. It is a one of a kind, custom log cabin, with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, ceiling fans in every room, large closets, and many other custom features. Also for your enjoyment is a full basement, with a Ping Pong table, Pool Table/Air Hockey Table, Foosball Table, Bean Bag Toss, Flat Screen TV, Refrigerator, and a Private Bath. Also many comfortable chairs and couches. Treat yourself. Stay at 'The Lodge on Grey Log Cove'. You're worth it

Peaceful, welcoming, comfortable, clean, and well-stocked lake cabin. Beds were comfy and the floors were sparkling! A perfect place for a girls weekend. Bob’s cabin is located on a cove which has a protected area to paddle around and swim, which was great! The water views are not as expansive as if you were on the main part of the lake, but it was still a water view. Home is close to the little town of Chimney Rock and to the Ingles supermarket. Bob, the owner, was super responsive.
Great time with dear friends!
My husband and I rented the property because it is in North Carolina where our adult children live. We were hoping they would spend part of the week with us. We weren't disappointed. Both our kids came, and we all had an amazing time.
This property is just as it is described. It is beautifully decorated and comfortable. As one who has rented a number of vacation properties over the years, this one had some small additions that made it even nicer. I don't know if anyone else gets as excited as I do when I go into a bathroom and find hand soap, but the cabin had hand soap in all three bathrooms. The towels were hotel quality, and there were more than enough in each bathroom. Also, the kitchen was well-equipped--knives, colander, coffee maker, pans, etc. It didn't feel like we were using the cast-offs of the owner.
We also used the kayaks. We brought two of our own, and we did pay the $50 fee for the week for each kayak. We thought it was well-worth the fee--the fine is $200 if you don't have the stickers. Besides, Lake Lure and the surrounding area have all sorts of trails and water access you do not pay for. We didn't mind giving the town the money. And we all had a great time paddling around the lake.
When I rented the cabin, I knew it was close to Chimney Rock, but I had no idea how close. Super easy to get to the village and the park. Oh, and there is a great vineyard tasting room, Burntshirt Vineyards, in Chimney Rock Village.
We loved La Strada and El Lago as well. We also ate at a restaurant up the road from the cabin, but I can't remember the name. It was great as well.
Close access to Ingles, and you are right across the road from a nice produce stand.
We would stay here again. As a matter of fact, I wish I could have stayed all summer. Awesome space and place.
Thank you so much for staying, and your review was very kind and generous. Thank you very much. I hope you will find the time to come back.
Great game room!
We had a wonderful stay at this property! I chose it for being lake (cove) front and for the game room. We had teen grandchildren with us and they spent a lot of time in basement playing pool and ping pong. Our only negatives were ants in kitchen and bathrooms and weak WiFi. These negatives would not deter us from renting again!
We had a great time at the cabin. We will be back again.
Mother's Day on the Lake
We had a lovely time! The house was very well appointed, was spotlessly clean and is located very conveniently to town activities and the local grocery store.
I would rent this home again!
