Why Ben & Lori Byers chose Rutherfordton
Safe neighborhood, semi rural setting, mountain views, close to town, tourist and local attractions. Ancestral home place passed down through the generations.
What makes this House unique
The property is Lori's ancestral family home place with a rich history, flora, and fauna. The home is located close to town (but not in town). Natural beauty surrounds the area, including Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, South Mountains, Tryon, Marion, and more. Hiking and biking on the Rails to Trails is less than a mile away. The home is close to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (14 miles). The home also features beautiful sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are also close to Isothermal Community College and the Foundation Performing Arts Center, the Rutherford Regional Airport, and the Rutherford Hospital.

We had a relaxing stay on Memorial Day weekend with our dog. Spent time at Lake Lure hiking and kayaking and enjoyed the mornings and evenings at this perfectly equipped home. We didn’t need to bring a thing as the generous hosts supplied all even treats for our dog! We felt welcomed and comfortable and Lori replied to all questions so quickly. The home is beautiful as are the paintings, pottery, comfy furniture and wonderful yard with mountain views. Definitely recommend and would love to return!
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH
Everyone.. If you are wondering if you should. The answer is yes!!!! This place was so beautiful, peaceful, and a true treat for the family. It promotes family togetherness. It gives you a pure sense of living and being. The inside was stunning and state of the art. Colors where so amazing. But most of all the art that is in the home was gorgeous. The views of the mountain side are more that words could ever describe. Don't just look at the pictures on VRBO... You have to go and stay to see what im talking about. If you love birds and nature, this is it. I saw birds of every color and species!!! Lori and Ben , THANK YOU SO MUCH.. The blessing of your vacation retreat was an honor!!!
Aww, Marvin, thank you so much and it was a delight to host your family!! We welcome you and yours back and cannot tell you how much we appreciate your review as it absolutely captures what our vacation home is really like. Pictures could never do it all justice. :) Many many blessings!!
Perfect Family Get Together
Renting this home was perfect in so many ways...2 bedroom, large living room, big kitchen with dining area, quiet setting. Lots of table games were played on the large dining table and those who didn't do games were in the main living room chatting and just enjoying seeing each other again. Found this home to be very well kept. There was a binder of information on the coffee table that answered all our questions about where things were. Would definitely stay here again!!
Nice home peaceful area to enjoy nature.
Enjoyed our stay at this home. Ice cream and steakhouse just a few minutes away. Backyard was peaceful and had a pretty view of mountain skyline. Lake Lure was about 16 to 20 minutes away to visit. Had a great time hanging out with family and our dogs. Owners were very nice also. Thanks again for taking care of our dog when he got loose right after we arrived!
Thank you guys and hope you can return again soon. We enjoyed meeting Oreo- what a cutie!
Such a comfy home!
There wasn’t one thing we “had” to go get. It’s nice to be provided the little necessities. The home is very warm and the living room is really big & the fireplace is just lovely! All the beds are comfortable and there’s plenty of room. Great location too! Highly recommend!
