Lake Lure, North Carolina
Laurel Ridge Retreat is an elegantly rustic log cabin that is all about the views! And the fall foliage on the mountains is spectacular! Three decks and lots of expansive windows allow access to these dramatic views from almost all rooms. Cozy wood burning fireplace adds ambience and a cheerful game room gives the kids something to do on rainy days. Located in a quiet, private area that's great for a walk in the woods, but only 3 miles from Lake Lure Marina and Beach, where you can take a boat cruise or rent a boat, and Chimney Rock State Park. Two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and one with 2 twins, 2 full baths with tub/shower combinations, plus large loft with king 4-poster bed and office nook. Sleeps 6 comfortably. Cable TV, CD/DVD players and WiFi. Imagine yourself waking up in the comfort of your own beautiful log cab... Read more

Why stay in a hotel or lodge, when THIS opportunity exists! Beautiful, peaceful cabin, has excellent floorplan to accommodate just the two of you, or the family, and make wonderful memories! Well equipped, can make family meals, and close to everything! Minutes to beach, grocery store, restaurant, golf... couldn't ask for more! Tucked away a couple streets off main road,...

A great stay at a quiet cabin with lots of room. This was a last minute stay with a late arrival. Sharon was very accommodating and the process was smooth and convenient. Everything you need to enjoy some time away relaxing but yet close to many things to do.
