Mountain Lake Escape is our 2nd home and an adorable cabin located in a gated community in Lake Lure, NC. If you are looking for complete peace and quiet or a dreamy place of solitude- this is it! It's also great for a family vacation or retreat. You will have access to 2 private lakes, our canoe and the Broad River. You'll instantly feel at home in our cabin with its beautiful decor, cozy blankets, comfortable beds and high quality sheets. Enjoy our grill, fireplace & fire pit. Plus FREE WINE!
The cabin has views of Mirror Lake year round, but is situated up on a hill- not on the lake. We have two cozy Egg chairs on the front porch that are perfect for naps, sipping lemonade or enjoying your morning coffee while taking in the sounds of nature. The kitchen is fully stocked and we also provide dish soap, dish detergent, sponges, garbage bags and coffer filters. There will be free wine waiting for you upon your arrival! There's a shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispenser in the shower for your stay. Plush bath towels, silky sheets and plenty of pillows and beach towels are also on site. We provide laundry detergent, an iron and ironing board as well. There are some extra fans if needed, but we have a NEST thermostat and full heat and AC for your comfort. We even have games for kids and adults, and a foosball table upstairs in the loft. In the loft you will find two twins beds, and a full size futon. We also have three yoga mats available. Out on the deck there's two tables that seat 6 total. One smaller table with two chairs, and a larger table with four chairs and an umbrella for those hot summer days. We have two surfboards that can be used for the lake, and life jackets and inner tubes located in a storage bin outside. In that bin, you will also find a hammock to enjoy a nice afternoon nap in. We typically have firewood on site for your fire pit experience as well as for the fireplace. Feel free to bring some duraflames if that's what you prefer. We have free wifi, a tv and a roku with netflix available. We don't have cable as it is difficult in the mountains- but we do have over 50 dvd's available to watch. Dirty Dancing is a must see when you visit Lake Lure- where it was filmed! There's lots to do in the area like hiking, canoeing, paddle boarding, Chimney Rock Park, Burntshirt Winery/restaurant, local breweries, and Canopy Ridge zip lining. Asheville is an hour away and Hendersonville is 30 minutes. It will be hard to fit it all in, but you can try!
The grocery store is 5 minutes outside the gated community as are some great restaurants. You will have amazing food and views at both Point of View and The Lake House.

My husband Dave and I have been married for 27 years. We have two boys in college. We have owned this cabin for almost 5 years. It has been a successful 5 star property since the beginning. We pride ourselves on making the cabin cozy and comfortable and also have complimentary wine when you arrive. I property manage the cabin and ask that our guests treat it as if it were their own. We allow up to two dogs and love that you get to bring your fur babies with you! This is our own little escape as well. We are here to make your stay memorable!
