Why Ben & Lori Byers chose Rutherfordton
Safe neighborhood, semi rural setting, mountain views, close to town, tourist and local attractions. Ancestral home place passed down through the generations.
What makes this House unique
The property is Lori's ancestral family home place with a rich history, flora, and fauna. The home is located close to town (but not in town). Natural beauty surrounds the area, including Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, South Mountains, Tryon, Marion, and more. Hiking and biking on the Rails to Trails is less than a mile away. The home is close to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (14 miles). The home also features beautiful sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are also close to Isothermal Community College and the Foundation Performing Arts Center, the Rutherford Regional Airport, and the Rutherford Hospital.

Perfect setting for a birthday celebration!
This was the perfect place to stay for a weekend celebration for our daughter's birthday. The house was clean, cozy, and so cute! We got in line but got takeout pizza from Barley's Taproom. Saturday was spent enjoying Stepp's Hillcrest Orchard, exploring Chimney Rock, watching Clemson football and eating lots of birthday cake. I enjoyed a run Sunday morning on the rails to trails path (so neat!). We also enjoyed being able to bring our fur baby with us. Highly recommend!
It was a pleasure to host your family! The Rails to Trails is super close to the house and offers a great spot for walking, running, biking. Next trip, try the pizza at Yellow Sun in Rutherfordton. Come back soon!
My daughter and I came up for the weekend to go to the Dirty Dancing Festival at the lake and we had a great time! The house was immaculate and very cozy! We stayed in the king bed room and the bed was very comfortable. Ben & Lori allow pets which was great and they are easy to communicate with about your stay. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for your stay and we welcome you all and Lulu back anytime! We appreciate how tidy you kept the house and your communications :) Happy Fall!
Property was above expectations and the owners have done a great job providing everything you may need. Very clean and the antique decor was beautiful. One exit away from TIEC made it convenient. Great value and if in area again we will stay there. Thanks/ T&C and little Austin. In-Joy
We are glad you could stay and happy to host you all in the future! Thanks again, Ben and Lori

We had a relaxing stay on Memorial Day weekend with our dog. Spent time at Lake Lure hiking and kayaking and enjoyed the mornings and evenings at this perfectly equipped home. We didn’t need to bring a thing as the generous hosts supplied all even treats for our dog! We felt welcomed and comfortable and Lori replied to all questions so quickly. The home is beautiful as are the paintings, pottery, comfy furniture and wonderful yard with mountain views. Definitely recommend and would love to return!
Regina, we thank you so much for your kind words and taking such time to review as well! Please come back soon!
