From the moment we walked we felt at home. The cabin was so homey and cozy. We had an amazing time and memories to last a lifetime. Our baby learned how to walk here. I saw snow for the first time. We didn't read the instructions and arrived at 7 am check in wasn't until 4. We contacted the owners and they allowed us to check in earlier and any time we had a question we were able to reach them right away. The cabin is a little secluded so you have to drive a bit to do stuff but hey that's the whole point of renting a cabin in the mountains. We rented movies brought board games and spent a lot of quality time together. We brought our own food and cooked every day so that saved us from going to town everyday . Our last day my niece was playing in the snow and dropped her IPhone 7 that she had just gotten for Christmas .. We missed out on our last day of vacation because we were literally looking for hours in the snow until we had to leave ... I emailed the owners of the Cabin and put a message on the phone if someone found it to please return to her, and I'm so happy to say that the cleaning crew found it and mailed to us. Amazing vacation
This home is very nice - large enough for multiple families and especially nice with the main level master and handicap accessibility. A bit far from area attractions, but we knew this going in so it was not a surprise and we planned in advance for the extra mileage for groceries and tourist attractions. Owners were very communicative and responsive to questions and needs that arose during our stay. Everything you could need is included - appliances, dishes, paper goods, laundry access, cooking essentials (dishes, cookware, utensils etc.). Everything was clean upon arrival.
I recently had the pleasure of enjoying Blue Range cabin and all I can say is that it was a true treasure! The view was breathtaking and cabin was wonderfully decorated and very accommodating from the cozy furniture to all of the amenities. We had privacy galore and more than enough room for 6 people. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all of the dishes, cooking utensils, and appliances that you would need. The porch was wonderful!! Rocking chairs available and the porch wrapped around the house. We had an issue (not really) with the alarm chirping, but we called Steve and Cheryl and they quickly walked us through the steps to get the noise to stop. No more chirping!! I can't say enough good things about our experience staying here. The rental and service received are definitely a 5 star rating!
Overall the house is beautiful. We really loved the view, the open living area and the wonderful wrap around porch and deck. However, it should not be connected with Lake Lure. It is almost an hour's drive from Lake Lure. Also, we rented this place because it was reported to be handicapped accessible. My husband is in a motorized wheel chair.. We had emailed the owner and asked if it was accessible for a wheel chair and was told it was. Well, it really is not. Though it has a wheel chair ramp and wide doors, thosei are the only wheel chair accessible items with the house. The master bathroom is NOT handicapped accessible. It did have a shower chair, but did not have bars in the shower and especially the toilet area. (Yes the shower had one small bar, but that bar was not stable enough for a truly handicapped person.). Again, it is a lovely house, but probably should not be advertised as handicapped friendly or near Lake Lure.
We took a group of several adults and kids back to Blue Range Ridge this year and were not disappointed. We booked the same trip last year, although a little earlier in the year, but everything was just as wonderful. The house had everything we needed and the owners are extremely accessible and friendly. Plenty of room for the kids to run and nice and quite for the adults.
We had a blast and will look to do it again next year.
