Let nature's peace and quiet replace the stress and noise of urban life. Discover Rutherford County's
"small-town, friendly atmosphere" and explore the unspoiled beauty of the Western North Carolinamountains. Rutherford county is the perfect, peaceful setting for your vacation retreat. Rural? YES.
Remote? NO. Our log home is only minutes away from the small town of Rutherfordton, population 4,000. The town offers services such as restaurants, banks, large grocery stores, the county court house, and the Rutherford County Visual Arts Center is located in the town square. It also has a 143 bed hospital.
Forest City is only ten minutes away where you can find some of your favorite large chain stores and restaurants.
Golf at Cleghorn Plantation, Meadowbrook, or the Apple Valley and Bald Mountain courses are in Lake Lure. There are also great municipal courses in Lake Lure, Forest City, and Rutherfordton. If golfing is not your thing, pan for gold, look for precious gems, go antiquing, do some hiking at Chimney Rock State Park, or take in a romantic dinner cruise on beautiful Lake Lure. Then return to the comfort of your rustic log home
Ski Hawk's Nest, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, Appalachian Ski Resorts or hike the highest peak east of the Mississippi on Mt Mitchell. All of these are a short drive from Rutherfordton. Shop until you drop in Asheville, explore the Biltmore Estates, view the beauty of the western North Carolina's Blue Ridge Parkway, or maybe just curl up in front of your own cozy fire in a quiet, safe, and secure gated community!
Let our Log home rental become your home away from home!!
