Description

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!

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Catahoula Cabin is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Catahoula Cabin has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION?

Wifi is not available at Catahoula Cabin. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE? 

Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have a small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store.

Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit.

WHAT IS LAKE LURE’S BOAT ACCESS POLICY? WHERE AND HOW DO I ACQUIRE A BOAT RENTAL?

Catahoula Cabin is subject to specific regulations and guidelines enforced by Lake Lure. Certain types of watercrafts are prohibited, and ALL watercrafts (motorized and non-motorized) must obtain and display a permit issued by the town in order to be on the lake.

For questions regarding boat rentals, please contact Lake Lure Adventure Company at (828) 625-8066 or Washburn Marina on Lake Lure at (828) 625-1373.

The Catahoula Cabin exceeded our expectations. Tucked away in the windy roads of the Smoky Mountains, the cozy cabin gave me and my family a chance to relax and soak in all the nature around us. The cabin has been updated throughout and is tastefully decorated. We especially enjoyed sitting on the back deck taking in the sunrise and sipping coffee. <BR>The cabin is extremely family friendly. The deck is fully enclosed and we didn't have to worry about our 2 year old escaping down any stairs. There's plenty of toys and activities to keep a kid happy the entire stay. <BR>All of the bedrooms are spacious, private and clean. Plenty of storage to keep your clothes and belongings. The bedding is super comfortable and we all slept great. <BR>We took full advantage of included access to the local resort, Rambling Bald. There's amenities for all ages. We rented a pontoon boat there to explore beautiful Lake Lure. It's a great way to experience the incredible scenery that surrounds the area. <BR>We highly recommend staying at Catahoula. From booking to check out, everything was simply explained and went smoothly. It's full of delightful surprises and is well taken care of. We will be back!

The cabin was perfect for our 3 night stay last week. Comfortably decorated, plenty of space for the whole family, and a quick drive over to Chimney Rock for hiking, brewery, great lunch spots, etc. A great fire pit for s'mores and all the kitchen necessities to cook our meals. Will absolutely come back to stay again this summer!
