Decorating Your Cabin for Fall

October is well underway, and autumn decorations are blooming with the reds, oranges, and golds that are beginning to grace our trees. Whether you’re diving into Halloween decorations or fall festival is more your style, it’s time to give your North Carolina mountain lake home an autumn makeover.

Nothing says ‘autumn’ quite like an array of gourds gracing your porch, tables, and landscape. Compliment the Nantahala fall foliage by arranging simple pumpkins and squash along your sidewalk, or take advantage of a Halloween classic by carving a Jack-O-Lantern with your family. If your style is more country than creepy, try painting pumpkins instead of carving them. Oranges and reds may be an automatic fall decorating color scheme, but adding touches of white or black will add instant class to your classic decorations.

Halloween Décor

For some, Halloween is an excuse to push the bounds of DIY decoration. Whether you love subtle touches or an all-out creepy cabin, there’s no end to Halloween decoration ideas for your North Carolina cabin. Pumpkins and spider-webs are holiday decorating staples, but try something new this year by painting custom candy jars and repurposing vintage items like typewriters for your décor. You can go as creepy or classic as you like, and most Halloween decorations can be tucked away and used again next year.


Fall festivities, October office parties, and Halloween trick or treating all offer unique experiences for anyone with Lake Nantahala real estate. Our beautiful mountain views, stunning foliage, and bird’s eye view of the lake are the perfect setting for any event. Ensure the night runs smoothly by checking your outdoor lighting before the evening begins. Well-lit exteriors will highlight the architectural features of your Reflection cabin and make your guests feel welcome. Small lanterns or ground lights lining your walkway will keep partygoers safe from stumbling.

This fall, enjoy the autumn ornamentation our mountain lake home provides by playing up the oranges, reds, and golds in your cabin decorating.
