Description

Swim, canoe, fish or tube from the private dock on Lake George, the 7 acre community lake. Traveling through the woods on paved roads in Gateway Mountain, you arrive at Serenity Lake Cabin. This inviting, romantic hideaway provides hours of relaxation and fun! Approaching the front porch, a winding stone pathway passes the garden ponds. As you enter the cabin, you are at peace with the world! The hand hewn logs and many windows bring the warmth of nature inside. The great room centers around the kitchen and wood-burning stone fireplace, truly the heart of the log home. Spectacular views from every window wrap around the house. Outside, the swing, hammock and rocking chairs are the perfect spot to enjoy the 40 mile view. The lower level features a spectacular antique pine bar with a pool table, and dartboard. Double doors lead outside to the secluded hot tub and fire pit. The second stone patio has an outdoor pizza oven and fire pit with nearby picnic table and horseshoes. Many fruit trees, berry bushes, grapevines, and an organic garden are available for the "pickins". The cabin sleeps six plus an outdoor hanging queen. Off the bar room is the "cork room" with a queen-sized bed and full bath. The open loft upstairs is the master suite. From the king bed, morning views of the mist in the mountains is spectacular. There is a TV and a telescope for star gazing. The twin room with two twins adjoin the master suite and also open to the living area below. The suite also has a large TV. The upper deck with two rocking chairs, is an ideal spot for morning coffee. The outdoor queen sized hanging bed is just right for afternoon naps. The views are breath-taking! Although the cabin is on the water, it is a challenging downhill walk. However, it is an easy, short 3 minute drive to the Lake. ”Catch and release" fishing is allowed in the lake. To top it off, it is only a short hike to the neighborhood waterfall, one of the best in western North Carolina.

Beautiful, secluded cabin with short drive to private lake and a gorgeous waterfall! We kept busy either outside playing horseshoes, or inside playing darts or billiards. It was clean, spacious, and every view was fabulous!

We spent a week in this wonderful cabin. The views are amazing from every window. We also enjoyed playing pool in the evenings and relaxing in the hot tub. The king size bed was so comfortable. Best sleep I've gotten in years. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone.

Our stay was fantastic. The cabin is beautiful and the owners have done a great job setting families up for a wonderful stay. However, when the rental company (Greybeard) sends out the directions, you will need to use them. GPS doesn't pick up the location to get the code and could take you down a dirt road. Other than that, the stay went very, very well.
Manager response on 2018-04-20 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Yes, we definitely recommend avoiding GPS, especially in the development where Serenity Lake Cabin is located. I'm so glad you had a nice stay and enjoyed the cabin!

This is our second stay here. It’s very convenient to Black Mountain, Asheville and Lake Lure. This cabin is so homey. It’s so peaceful that you don’t even realize there are other houses nearby. You can’t see any of them, but you may hear a dog barking or children playing. We really only heard this once the whole time we were there. The cabin is well stocked with just about everything you would need. We liked grilling there once or twice, not wanting to drive up the unfamiliar roads at night. The road is a little winding, but not a scary drive at all. We saw lots of wild turkeys along the way. One thing we did miss this trip was the lack of a TV on the main floor. In the past we’ve listened to the TV while preparing dinner or watched a football game at night. It’s still the perfect place for us—definitely our happy place!
Manager response on 2017-11-06 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for this feedback and for returning to stay at Serenity Lake Cabin! I'm glad you were pleased with the second stay. It's a great home! I'm going to pass along your comment about the TV not being present on the main floor anymore - thanks for letting us know what you thought. Update 4.16: the owner has replaced the TV in the living room with an upgraded one.

Leave your troubles behind!

Serenity is tucked away in the Gateway Mountain neighborhood. The homes are so far apart that you will feel like you have the place to yourself. There is a pond with canoe and a waterfall hike right within the neighborhood. Hot tub, pool table, fire pits, porches will make you just want to stay and relax in the cabin. We enjoyed excursions to Chimney Rock, Black Mountain and Asheville. Wonderful trip!

Excellent experience with Greybeard Rentals; responsive, professional and I like the app and other timely communication and instructions via email. We stayed at the Serenity Lake Cabin in March 2017 - what a beautiful place in a secluded/gated community! We enjoyed spending time on Lake George on the canoe and also seeing the nearby waterfall. The cabin had so many cool touches; the hanging outdoor bed, hammocks, amazing decks on both levels, fire pits, hot tub, fireplace & more. The view from every side of the house was spectacular. Watching the sunset over the mountains - amazing. We had such a wonderful family trip here. We took day trips to Asheville, Lake James and Chimney Rock. Love driving around the backwoods of Western North Carolina! We will be back to rent again with you. Thank you!

Out of this world! Perfect place to leave your cares behind, relax, play, watch the night sky, always a place to get away from everyone with you, become one with nature, no neighbors, everything there that you needed, just supply food! Oh, cell phones wouldn't work from there...I liked that!
Manager response on 2017-04-04 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Glad you found a nice place to get away from it ALL! Serenity Lake Cabin is popular one. Usually cell phones on the Verizon network best, but I'm happy to hear that wasn't a problem anyway! :) Thank you for the great review and please come back soon. - Greybeard Rentals team

This is a beautiful, serene, very secluded cabin about a 10-minute curvy (but not scary) drive up the mountain. It is nicely decorated. I loved having a bathroom on every level. The view gets better with each floor that you climb. The fall views are stunning! We enjoyed sitting on the deck with a glass of wine or two and grilling at night. There's even a garden where you can get some of your ingredients.
