Description from manager

Unplug from the hectic world and sink into the comforts and natural setting of Catahoula Cabin. Surrounded by lovely hardwoods and tucked away on the hills of Lake Lure, this cabin is perfect for any group looking to get away for a bit and connect with each other. Due to its location, this property is not equipped with wifi. From the moment you enter the log home, you’re welcomed into a soothing environment - gentle colors and clean spaces will put you into that vacation mindset.

Spend your mornings leisurely sipping your coffee or tea as the sunlight filters through the trees surrounding the back deck and the creek rumbles by with the melody of bird songs. When you’re ready to adventure out, make your way down to Lake Lure’s public 3-acre white sand beach to rent a kayak, paddle board, or spend your time lounging in the sun. Perhaps lunch at Burntshirt Vineyards and Bistro and take in the face of Chimney Rock as you sip on local wine and feast on carefully cultivated seasonal entrees. Take your time wandering down main street Chimney Rock browsing the shops and sights, stopping at Hickory Nut Gorge Brewery for a local brew, Coffee On the Rocks for a nice berry smoothie or almond milk latte, or John Bull Trading Co. for the best fudge in town. For those up for a hike, visit Chimney Rock State Park and climb the 100+ steps to the top, or ride up in their brand new elevator.

Wrap your evening up with a nice dinner at LakeHouse Restaurant Bar & Grille, ordering a platter of apps for the table with delights such as: crab stuffed mushrooms, spinach dip, and bbq wings. Enjoy a juicy filet mignon on a bed of onion straws, or a local special, Blue Ridge Mountain Trout that is pecan encrusted. Once you’ve had your fill of the adventurous day and delectable eats, head back to the cabin for a relaxing evening - playing board games in front of the rustling gas fire as you watch a movie on cable, or laughing around the campfire as you reflect on the day and past times together.

Take one of your days at Catahoula Cabin to venture into Asheville, an hour away, and explore the vibrant downtown food, arts, and beer scene. Spend a morning traipsing through the gardens and grounds of the Biltmore Estate, a historical home with award winning gardens and amazing architecture. Lunch at one of the restaurants on the Estate, or head back into Asheville to dine at one of the many James Beard nominated restaurants. No matter where you eat, you’re guaranteed to experience amazing flavor and delightfully crafted meals. In the summer, rest your weary feet while floating down the French Broad River on a tube and enjoy your lazy afternoon.

As a guest at Catahoula Cabin, you'll have full access to the elite Rumbling Bald Resort located just 10 minutes away. Boasting the North Shore Beach Cabana and marina where you can play around on the water by kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or pontoon boat, this resort also offers tennis courts, pickleball, various hiking and biking trails, and an adventure camp designed for kids (ages 6-18). Even on those inevitably rainy days, you can still enjoy the resort amenities inside. Rumbling Bald has a number of shops, restaurants, a spa, a salon, a fitness center, and a private indoor pool, so the fun can continue. There's truly something for everyone in the family to enjoy at this premier resort!
