Mountain Majesty ..   
A Shady Retreat is a beautiful log home, surrounded by picturesque forest with a private lake a short walk or drive from the cabin. It has sunny and shady porches overlooking lovely mountain vistas in the private, gated community of Riverbend at Lake Lure. This cabin is 7.5 miles from the Lake Lure Beach, 8.5 miles to Chimney Rock State Park and 19 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Spend your day tubing down the river, swimming at the lake in the common area, or just relax on the porch and enjoy the view! Enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The location offers easy access to nearby restaurants, zip lines, hiking, fishing, boating, swimming. It is a short drive to the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park; quaint shops in Chimney Rock and Hendersonville; and music and theater in Brevard and Flat Rock.

More Comforts than Home
This family-friendly (sorry, no four-legged family members) home-away-from-home has 3 bedrooms, plus a loft, and a game room all set for air hockey and movie-watching. It is well-equipped with all the comforts of home plus some!

The main level has a nice great room with gas-log fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with upgraded appliances, super cozy bedroom with queen bed and full bath with access from hall and bedroom, there is also a laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer. The upper level has a comfortable and private master bedroom with king size bed and full private bath. This level also has an open loft with comfortable seating area, sofa that opens into a queen size bed and also a sunny deck to enjoy the view. The lower level has a cozy family room with large TV, comfortable furniture to relax and be comfortable, games and books, an air hockey table, a bath with shower, and a very comfortable private bedroom with king size bed - bath is accessible from the bedroom and family/game room area. The family room also has patio access with outside seating and corn hole game boards for family fun. Lots of room for everyone!  A Shady Retreat has endless options! Go tubing in the river, jump in for a swim, or grab a pole and fish—all within minutes from the cabin in common area in the community.  

Riverbend at Lake Lure Amenities
In addition, you can also enjoy all the amenities Riverbend has to offer: swim in Mirror Lake, build sand castles on Mirror Lake Beach (there’s a play area for children); have a meal at the covered picnic site complete with picnic tables, rocking chairs, stone fireplaces to BBQ lunch, restrooms and spectacular views; hike, bike, or jog one of the many trails; or just sit and relax by the waterfall and river. The fishing is excellent and there is a bait shop just across the road near the main entrance.

Perfect Year Round
A Shady Retreat is perfect for every season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter where a cozy cottage feels just right. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect all the time and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful sunsets from every window, not to mention the awesome mountain views. In the spring everything is beginning to bloom and the area is known for the beauty of its autumn colors.
No matter the season, this mountain home, our beautiful area, and Lake Lure have so much to offer, whether it is plentiful choices of restaurants or shopping, or a fun outdoor adventure you and your loved ones will never forget!

Please advise renters about GPS will take you the back way. (Hard) Also, power was out at main gate after hours and we could not get in because we didn't have a code. Please advise as of what to do in that situation. Other than that, stay was perfect. The house was beautiful. Everything was clean. We had everything we needed.

We cannot wait to come back. I wish we had more time to spend here!!! The cabin was very clean. The furniture and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The best part was the location. The views were beautiful, yet we were close to a grocery store, activities and restaurants. Many of our friends and colleagues have families who vacation here and this is the perfect place for families to stay.

My mother, sister, husband, two year old daughter and I stayed at this property and we had a wonderful time. The cabin was clean and looked exactly like the pictures. Also the area was very quiet which allowed us all to get some much needed rest and relaxation. We loved that the cabin has three levels which allowed everyone to have their own space. We would definitely stay here again.

A Shady Retreat offered us a lovely vacation rental experience. The property was very clean, there was lots of room for guests, nice amenities, close proximity to fun, outdoor activities, beautiful view and overall exceptional space to relax. The one drawback was that the Riverbend Community does not have paved roads so it was a dusty bumpy trail up to the cabin. I would highly recommend this rental property.

It really is imperative that you disclose the road issue to renters. This would be a huge issue with someone who wasn't prepared and drove a care that could not make it up the hill. The cottage was AMAZING and we would go back in a heartbeat and also tell friends....but our only issue is that the gravel road up to the cottage was destroyed. We barely got up the hill in our SUV and had a couple scary moments trying not to slide down....this was very unsettling. If we had any kind of small car with little engine power we would have been in trouble...I cannot recommend this place until that road is addressed. NOTE - from Manager: Road was graded and smoothed out the day after guest departure, we wish it could have happened sooner but we cannot control that. Guests in all types of vehicles including low to the ground sports cars have enjoyed staying in this home and it is normally just a gravel road but was a little rougher than normal for this guest :(

The only negative from the entire stay is that the armoire in the upstairs bedroom had not been dusted. I opened the doors to place some clothing on the shelves and they were covered in dust. It was not a huge deal as I cleaned them myself - I just wanted to bring it to your attention. The selection of properties to choose from is great! We had a hard time deciding on the one for our stay. The cabin was MUCH cleaner than ones we have stayed in previously (in other areas of NC & TN). This cabin is beautiful - from the decorations to the antler handles! The owners have done a fabulous job with it - we found it very hard to leave! My boys absolutely loved the bean bag chair/pillows downstairs & I fell in love with the faux fur throw (I'll be getting one for myself!)

Our family of four absolutely loved this cabin! It was secluded enough to provide tranquility and privacy; yet safe in a gated community. The views were breathtaking! The cabin was beautiful, clean, and large. The attention to detail was evident in the decorations, linen, and all of the equipment and supplies provided to us. We also loved the location of this cabin and it's close proximity to Lake Lure Beach, Chimney Rock State Park, Asheville, and Black Mountain. Overall, we had an amazing vacation and look forward to returning .

Notes

Conveniently Located

A Shady Retreat is about 15 minutes from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and Village. Lake Lure was ranked by National Geographic as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. There are water sport rental options (kayaks, wake boards, boats, etc.) and pontoon tours of the lake.

The iconic Chimney Rock, for which the State Park was named, was featured on Arthur Frommer's Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Budget Travel magazine. The park received the platinum award for Favorite State Park in Blue Ridge Country’s 2013 Best of the Mountains travel poll, with voting every five years and covering seven southern states in the Appalachian Mountains. There are also several excellent golf courses nearby, including Apple Valley Golf Course, Bald Mountain Golf Course, and Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort, which Golf Digest rated as one of the top 50 golf destinations in the US.

If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (curvy and scenic Memorial Highway) through Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, Gerton, Fairview, toward Asheville to pick up what many consider the most beautiful length of road in this country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you have not traveled any stretch of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.

This lovely home is centrally located just 15 minutes from Bat Cave; 35 minutes from Hendersonville; 50 minutes from Asheville; and about 2 hours from Charlotte, North Carolina. Also nearby are Pisgah National Forest (less an 1 hour from Lake Lure), which has over 500,000 acres of protected forest, and DuPont State Recreational Forest (1.25 hours from Lake Lure) with over 10,000 acres. These forests feature hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails, exquisite waterfalls, and beautiful mountaintop views. If you and/or your children are fans of The Hunger Games book and movie, a scene with Katniss and Gale was shot at the Pisgah National Forest. A few small but significant scenes were also filmed at the DuPont State Recreational Forest.

The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock area is conveniently situated for outdoor adventure including horseback riding, tubing, water sports, and hiking; museums and theater; the Biltmore Estate and Village; shopping and restaurants; and so much more. For additional information and activities, just click our Local Area Guide.
