Sophie's cabin is tucked away in the gated Riverbend Community and is a very quiet retreat most suitable for a couple looking to unplug from the hustle and bustle. It is both spacious and cozy with a private bedroom, a full bathroom, a full kitchen, and a comfortable living room to watch a movie, read, or play games. The large secluded deck behind the cabin has a table and chairs and chaise lounges facing the woods to hang out and listen to the wind and the birds. You may even see a deer or two.

The space

The bedroom has a high quality queen size mattress with linens, blankets, and a variety of pillows provided. The full bathroom has a full sized tub/shower. Towels, body wash, and shampoo are provided. The kitchen has a full size fridge, chef's gas range, microwave, and toaster oven. Pots and pans/dishes/ bake ware/glassware/cutlery and lots of kitchen tools are all provided. It is well stocked. We have a Kuerig coffee machine with several types of coffee to choose from... A variety of tea choices and sugar and sweetener are provided as well. We just added WIFI with a hot spot connection for moderate use (no streaming video please) as we have a limit on data from our provider... There is a gas burning "wood stove" in the living room for atmosphere and warmth. We just installed a state of the art mini-split AC/heat pump system with separate heads in the living room and bedroom with remote controls for each. There are ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom as well. I think you will find the cabin quite cozy and comfortable. We have worked hard to try and think of everything.

Guest access

You will have access to the whole cabin and deck. Access is also provided to the private lake and beach area nearby as well as the Broad River and it's private picnic area and walking trails... There is a large grocery store about 8 minutes away with a deli, gas station, pharmacy, and Redbox.

Interaction with guests

I live about 45 minutes from the cabin and am available by phone or text from 9AM-9PM or later for emergency contact if necessary...

Other things to note

Please drive slowly through the neighborhood's gravel roads as there are some relatively blind curves... and please use WIFI modestly as our data plan is limited. There is no reliable internet provider in our location so we must use a cell phone "hot spot".

Sophie's Cabin is a wonderful place to get away from it all. In a nice location with several restaurants available nearby. The cabin itself is tucked away in the woods, very peaceful and quiet. Nearby Lake Lure is a very nice area to visit, with lovely picnic areas, rocking chairs provided in one of them. Nearby Chimney Rock, also provided opportunities for walks and picnics. We enjoyed our week, didn't want to leave! Cabin is nicely appointed, very clean, has a wonderful gas range, Keurig, nice linens, movies, games, puzzles, books, so even on rainy days you can cozy up and have plenty to do.

You will love this home! David and his wife thought of every detail you could imagine for this place. The linens were exceptional compared to other places I stayed at. The whole place felt very clean. I stayed with my two kids (4 and almost 6) and it was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed visiting the private beach - it was hard to peel the kids away from the beach, they loved it so!
