Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

As you drive up the country road and pass through the red barn gate of Lady Bug Lake Lodge, you will sigh with pleasure. The majestic mountain views, the shimmering 5 acre lake, and the towering Black Walnut trees will all take your breath away!

All the stress of everyday life is replaced with the peaceful calm you will experience that this beautiful vacation home has to offer. The cabin is a two story home originally built in 1886 and expanded with modern amenities to reflect the comforts of home including Wi-Fi Internet.

The second level is a huge master bedroom suite with a walk in closet, multi jet shower, sitting area with a TV, DVD player and a private balcony. What a beautiful way to start the day, by looking out the wall to wall windows to see the mountains and lake right in front of you.

Down stairs you have two comfortable bedrooms, full bath, kitchen and cozy family room. The family room features a wood burning fireplace, TV/DVD, and cabin decor. Catch a glimpse of the resident deer and geese families through the second set of wall to wall windows while sipping your coffee in the tree trunk carved table and chairs.

The kitchen features farm house sink, gas stove, dishwasher, stainless refrigerator, and fully equipped kitchen supplies. If you're in the mood to get back to the old ways, you can cook your cornbread in the cast iron skillet on the wood burning stove. Look around and you can see the quaint touches of the original 1886 home.

The real beauty is the outdoors. Stroll down to the lake and enjoy relaxing while sitting at the covered boat house, cast a line in to fish for bass or sunbathe on the floating dock. Get some exercise while canoeing around the lake or enjoy taking in the fresh air. Or just lay back on a float while spying pictures in the clouds.

You can set up the badminton net or play a game of Bocce on the regulation court. Enjoy some practice shots with the golf clubs provided or even set up a tent for the kids to play in. With 17 acres to explore, you'll have much to do or nothing to do.

It’s your vacation, have fun. But don't forget to hike to the back of the lake over the hills to see the waterfall that feeds the hidden Cat Tail pond. There are also several streams and mini waterfalls and the wetlands to explore and view the local birds. Cook the bass you catch, on the BBQ grill and enjoy your dinner under the covered patio on the tree slab table surrounded by Wisteria and rose bushes.

Toast marshmallows for Smores in the fire pit. And just relax the night away sitting on the porch of the old fashioned wood cabin bar while enjoying the crackling sound from the wood burning stove fire, looking toward the lake and reflecting on the adventures of the day. After experiencing the natural beauty of Lady Bug Lake, you'll leave with fond memories and hopes of returning once again. PET FRIENDLY!

*Note* What A View cabin rental has an access trail to use the other side of the lake.

Reviewer Comments:

We booked this property for a relaxing stay on lots of private land. The property setting is beautiful. Our family loved lounging on the private dock and had fun exploring and canoeing. We ate all of our meals outside, which was wonderful. The cabin's interior, however, is not represented well in the listing. Kitchen is poorly stocked. It was not very clean, as in the floors were not vacuumed well. Most importantly, photos of the downstairs bedroom and bathroom are not in the listing. For good reason. The linens are old and worn down. The bathroom is very rundown and there is mold/mildew on the shower curtain. Not up to par for the rental price. You are definitely paying for the outdoor experience.

Reviewer Comments:

The property looks very secluded but it's not. While it states that it sits on 17 acres in the description, it doesn't tell you that it sits 50 feet off the road. Some positives: great outdoor setting, canoes provided, and pet friendly. Some cons: grass was not cut, ruined a pair of shorts because someone repainted a rocking chair and did not label "wet paint", poorly stock pond ( we caught 4 fish all week and we are not beginners), and uncomfortable seating. Don't get me wrong, it was not terrible. We just expected more based on the previous reviews.

We absolutely loved The Ladybug Lodge. It was everything we hoped it would be. We fished in the pond every day. Our 6 year old granddaughter caught Bluegill, Bass and Brim. All of which we decided to throw back.We hope to go back next year.

Reviewer Comments:

We wanted to find a place where our children could get away from the electronics and get back to being kids again. This place was amazing for that. Our kids loved the yard and house so much. We will definitely be back for another stay and the visit to the area was so great for us enough that we are now looking to move to blue ridge!

Reviewer Comments:

My new husband and I stayed at Ladybug Lake for our honeymoon last month. We brought our humungous dog also, which made our trip better by not worrying about him for a whole week. Ladybug was exactly what we had hoped for. We are avid bass anglers and woke up every morning to our private lake and fished all day in our pajamas ?? We did venture out a few times but there was no real reason to leave. We had everything we needed right there. After a whole week I truly felt like it was home. We will be staying there again soon and highly recommend! Thank you Ladybug owners for sharing your gem.
