Arbor Cabins at Lake Lure
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2009

We stumbled on the website for The Arbors at Lake Lure and were immediately entralled by the 1926 cabin. After getting information from the very friendly owners, Steve & Linda, we booked a three night stay over the July 4th weekend. The only thing better than be in such close proximity to shops, excellent restaurants and local activities was coming "home" to the serene, beautiful quiet of the cabins.

The cabin was very comfortable, beautifully decorated and well stocked. Fresh baked bread, homemade jam and farm fresh eggs were left for our enjoyment. The hot tub on our private deck and access to professional massages only added to the relaxing, calming atmosphere.

If you want to "get away from it all" and yet be right in the middle of it, this is the place for you!

The room in our cottage was musty and the television remote control was broken. The owner informed us of this and gave us a universal remote that he didn't bother programming. So, we decided to rent DVDs. Once we tried to watch the DVDs, we discovered that we couldn't because we needed the remote control to set the television for DVD viewing. When we called the owner about this inconvenience, he told us that former guests had been without electricity for a couple of days and they didn't complain. Needless to say, we were very disappointed with the Arbor, but loved the rest of Lake Lure.

I spent the weekend at the Arbor at Lake Lure for an early 3rd anniversary and husband's birthday with our dog in the Moon Pie Cabin. The Arbor is very cozy and comfortable. The cabin had a small kitchen with a table. The space was great and the private hot tubs for each cabin were one of the reasons I chose the Arbor, along with them being dog friendly. The owner was helpful with recommendations and it was so quiet. Very centrally located, we got everywhere in about 10 minutes. We would definitely stay again. The only small negative was getting to the hot tub at night - we used flashlights to find our way, as there were no outside lights around our cabin - this adds to the atmosphere but made it tricky getting to the hot tub on a rainy weekend.

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 10 year Wedding Anniversary in a special way. We are typically beach people, but decided with a fall annviersary, we would head to the mountains. We have always heard of Lake Lure and decided that would be our destination. But we didn't want to go with the traditional hotel room. Not in this beautiful setting. That's when we came across The Arbor. They are beautiful, cozy little cabins nestled in the woods just off of Lake Lure. They have everything you need for a quiet getaway. They are very clean, well kept cabins that have been given those special, personal touches by the owners, a positively delightful and hospitable couple. I highly recommend snatching one of these cabins up for a cozy little getaway. You will love it and definitely will want to come back again!

We found the Arbor on an internet search of the Lake Lure area. We checked out their website, called and chatted, and booked our stay. When we arrived, we found the website information and pictures to be very accurate. We couldn't get there before 9:30 or 10 pm and Steve was great to get us settled in. The cabin was outstanding. Linda had done a great job of decorating, and it was as clean and fresh as brand new. Steve was very helpful during our stay with advice about the area. And the area is great to get out and explore. We stayed druing the last weekend of July, 2008. We will be going back!!!

the Arbors at Lake Lure were fabulous! We did go during the slow season(before christmas) but had a fabulous time nonetheless. The Hosts were helpful and had plenty of information about what to do and see in the area. The cabins are cozy and have everything you need for your stay. Upon arrival, our jacuzzi was ready for us and the fridge was stocked with items for breakfast! They even had two DVD's available to watch(both of which were filmed in the area). We fully enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to all of our friends!
