Nothing is more memorable than a smell.  One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains...--Diane Ackerman

The Arbor Cabins at Lake Lure offers ultra-private retreats with professional hospitality!


Located just around the corner from the Lake Lure Beach and Marina and a few minutes' drive from Chimney Rock State Park, The Arbor Cabins & Cottage have been one of Lake Lure's top lodging choices for over sixteen years.  The Arbor is conveniently located, yet private.  Each cabin and the cottage has its own personality and all are mountain getaway gems providing first-class accommodations for two. You'll feel our genuine hospitality from booking through departure, with personalized attention from dedicated owner-operators who are never more than a call (or holler!) away.

Come enjoy your own private deck with a sparkling-clean hot tub for two, comfortable king size bed, fireplace, Wi-Fi, Netflix and so much more.  Feel free to sleep in, as your cabin is stocked with breakfast goodies and coffee (or tea or cocoa) to start the day at your own pace.  The property is nestled under a beautiful tree canopy and provides ample seating areas to appreciate the natural surroundings and--if you're lucky--wildlife including our adorable flying squirrels, whitetail deer, hummingbirds and chameleons.  The pavilion provides guests with a gas grill and outdoor dining area.  All of our "tiny homes" are carefully decorated with antiques, collectibles and regionally hand-crafted furniture.

The Arbor Cabins is an ideal choice for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, romantic escapes and relaxation retreats.  Our guests return again and again for the peaceful mountain cabin ambiance and thoughtful amenities that provide a respite from whatever stresses may beset your everyday life.

Whether you stay a weekend or a week, you will find yourself charmed by the spirit of this magnificent place.

If you can tear yourselves away from the comforts of your cabin, you will discover a wide variety of pleasures and adventures in any season: from unique local restaurants to gift and antique shops, hiking trails and tours, boat and kayak rentals, seasonal produce and craft stands, winery tastings, zip-line tours, horseback riding and whitewater adventures.

We are located in the center of it all:

  • 5 minutes to Chimney Rock Village and State Park
  • 25 minutes to Tryon International Equestrian Center
  • 30 minutes to historic Hendersonville
  • 45 minutes to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate
  • 1 hour to Greenville-Spartanburg
  • 1.5 hours to Charlotte

Enjoy The Arbor Difference!
