"Grandpa's Cabin", by Carolina Properties, offers country seclusion yet is close to town. Imagine spending a week or a weekend secluded in the country and yet be minutes from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, North Carolina. The cottage is 12.8 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 14.2 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 21.3 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). Built to mimic an old fishing cottage, Grandpa's Cabin has plenty of rustic appeal including a covered front porch. The bold Cedar Creek runs through the front yard. Picture yourself sitting on the front porch with your family (four-legged family members welcome) and listening to the rushing water just steps away. There are rocking chairs and a porch swing for your use. This is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea. You and your children may want to jump into the creek to play or just to cool off. Basic but Functional This home has served as a family country getaway for years. It is basic but functional, offering Internet for needed work hours or searching for your next adventure; a true escape from the modern, hectic world. Put your cell phone away, there is no service at the cabin (there is a landline telephone in the home), and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. In this single-level cottage are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The living, kitchen, and dining areas are in a single large room that includes a great stone fireplace with gas logs. It is perfect for cool evenings, when a blazing fire in a mountain cabin is ideal. For All Seasons With the area's temperate climate and beauty, this home can be enjoyed throughout the year. Springtime brings the blooming of the dogwood and red bud 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. Add the year-round sounds of Cedar Creek and you have peaceful perfection! The Lake Lure/Chimney rock area and surrounding communities offer a number of entertainment and activity options. See the Amenities and Notes for just a sampling of what is available. Just pack your clothes, pick up some groceries, and then sit back, relax, and enjoy all this area and Grandpa’s Cabin have to offer. We hope to see you soon and welcome you to be our guest! Smoking is prohibited. Dogs (up to 2) are welcome in this home. Guests are required to clean up after their pets to avoid additional charges. Parking for two (2) vehicles.
