This country cottage is located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains 10 miles north of Lake Lure. From the moment you cross the bridge over the bold creek the tranquil sounds of running water will transport you and the natural beauty will take your breath away. Then you enter this humble little home and the feeling of relaxation is complete. You’ll feel as if you have stepped back in time!
Relax on the front porch in one of the rockers and listen to the soothing sounds of water or enjoy a small stream from the back porch. Inside the two (2) bedroom, one (1) bath cabin are all the comforts of home! All on one level is a living area, gas fireplace, television with satellite TV (basic channels) and DVD player, dining area, kitchen, two bedrooms and full bath. Bed, bath, and kitchen linens are provided. Bring your fishing pole.
With the area's temperate climate and beauty, this home can be enjoyed throughout the year. Springtime brings the blooming of the dogwood and redbud trees as well as the azaleas, rhododendron, and mountain laurel. Summer brings lush greenery and the autumn colors are extraordinary. Winters are mild and, with less tree obstruction, views are incredible.
Western North Carolina offers a number of entertainment and activity options as well as some of the most beautiful views you will ever see. Just 29 miles west is Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. You can tour the mansion and winery, and at Christmastime enjoy the beautifully decorated trees and lights. Biltmore Village is home to many unique shops and, according the Food Network Channel, one of the most beautiful McDonald’s restaurants in the world.
This area of North Carolina caught the attention of Hollywood years ago. A number of movies have been filmed in Asheville and at the Biltmore Estate including the Peter Sellers film Being There. Chimney Rock State Park is where a The Last of the Mohicans scene was filmed. This a perfect place to spend the day hiking and admiring the magnificent views. Dirty Dancing, My Fellow Americans, Firestarter, and A Breed Apart scenes were filmed at Lake Lure. As National Geographic’s pick as one of the top ten most beautiful man-made lakes in the world, no wonder Lake Lure has been a popular filming site. Less than 50 miles away, at the DuPont State Recreational Forest, scenes from The Hunger Games movie were filmed including the 74th Hunger Games where Katniss Everdeen finds Peeta Mellark wounded and camouflaged among the rocks and leaves; earlier in the film where Peeta and Cato battle; and where exploding fireballs threaten Katniss as she runs through the forest. About 60 miles away is Grandfather Mountain in Linville where Forrest Gump, in the movie of the same name, was filmed running and the hairpin curve is now named after the famous character. The beauty of western North Carolina keeps bringing filmmakers back to our area.
Additionally, the Lake Lure area offers seasonal scenic boat tours, tennis, golf, horseback riding, biking, fishing, and restaurants. Quaint Bat Cave offers unique shops. Just 20 miles away is Rutherfordton, where you can enjoy wonderful meals, great shopping, and a children’s museum. Thirty minutes away historic Hendersonville boasts antique shopping and live theater. Click our VISITOR INFORMATION tab for details.
