This cabin retreat has all the comforts of home! Situated on the 10-acre fishing lake within the gated log home community called Hidden Lake! Located in McDowell County, approx. 10 miles south of the town of Marion, NC, and below I-40 just off of Hwy 226 South.

A gravel drive will lead you to the main entrance of the home, and offers plenty of parking. Once inside you will appreciate the hand crafted log finishings. The main living room has a huge, stone, floor to ceiling fireplace, perfect for those winter days! A rustic leather sofa and reading chair surround the fireplace, along with a large, flat screen TV with DVD player. The dining area is just adjacent and has a large log dining table with chairs and benches. The nearby kitchen features all major appliances, and is very well stocked with all the cookware, glassware, and utensils you may need. Also on this level is a guest bedroom with a log full size bed with twin bunk above. There is also a nice log dresser to compliment the room. The bathroom on this level features a toilet, sink and tub/shower.

To get to the 2nd level of this home, you will ascend the custom 1/2 log open staircase to the loft area above. A beautiful antler chandelier illuminates both levels. There is a loveseat and rocker in the loft. The master bedroom is on this level and has a rustic carved log headboard, and is a queen size. Another TV is here along with log dresser, end table and large walk-in closet. The large adjoining master bath is tiled and has a glass shower, Jacuzzi tub, sink and toilet.

Moving down to the bottom level of the home you will pass along the rocked stairwell. This level is bright and airy and features a full size sleeper sofa, flat screen TV, and the 3rd bedroom and bath. There is also a fooseball table & dart board, along with several board games & books to enjoy. 2 fishing poles & basic tackle box are provided. Laundry facilities are here too. The sliding doors open to the outdoor patio area with seating.

In the spacious yard, there is a large rock fire pit with seating around it - just great for making smores! A wooded path leads down to the lake area with a small dock. You can fish here or over at the larger community fishing dock near the pool area.

This home is fully equipped with all linens, towels, and kitchen items that you will need. A small starter supply of paper products, dish/laundry detergents, and trash bags is provided. You will need to bring any extras, along with your own bath soap, shampoo, etc.

Guests also have full use of all common areas within the community to include the Lakeside boardwalk & fishing dock. Swimming in the lake is NOT permitted, and fishing is catch & release only. If you have your own canoe or kayak, you are welcome to bring that with you, as there are no boats to use or rent at the lake area. The lake is not large enough for motorized boats of any type. Additional fishing, boating and swimming beaches are available at Lake James State Park, approx. 25-30 minutes from us.

There is a seasonal inground pool, jetted spa, and poolhouse with bathroom facilities near the common area at the lake. And there are some picnic areas with grills both at the Lakeside Park and the smaller Streamside Park. There is even a small playground area for younger children. The community also has designated walking trails for you to enjoy. Local area information, attractions, brochures, menus & maps are provided in the home to help you find your way around more easily.

We regret that we are unable to accept pets of any type. This is also a non-smoking residence. When sending us an inquiry, please be sure to include both your email address and phone number.
