Visiting Hendersonville and staying at Leoni's Mountain Lake Inn evokes the true meaning of "lazy days of summer" (or spring, fall and winter). While the pace is laid back there is no shortage of things to do from hanging out and swimming down by the lake to exploring downtown Hendersonville and surrounding towns to hiking and visiting many historical and picturesque sites. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, a short drive from Asheville and Maggie Valley, MLI, with its charming "campy" row cabins is sure to make anyone feel like they have stepped way back in time for a good old fashioned relaxing vacation, great for couples, families or friends.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mountain Lake Cottages is a place where you can come to relax and find peace in today’s hectic world. The main house serves as the private residence of the Leoni family. The estate goes on to boast a lovely gathering of eleven one-bedroom cottages, circa 1920. Our pleasing cottages look out on beautiful Lake Osceola. The lake presents 1.6 miles of shoreline to explore. We encourage guests to use our canoe and kayak to enjoy the water. Fishing is permitted with a license. If boating and fishing aren’t your desire, rise early in the morning and let the mist on the lake take your breath away, or find an unfrequented place to sit, read and enjoy the quiet. Being only minutes from Main Street in Hendersonville you will be able to take advantage of all this charming town has to offer. Enjoy browsing our boutiques, antiquing or spend an evening on Main being entertained by live music at one of the many street dances. There are a wide variety of chef-owned restaurants to choose from for your dining pleasure. Day excursions to Brevard’s many waterfall trails and Asheville’s eclectic interests are a must.
