Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 16, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

LouBeeLure is a lakefront vacation home on Yacht Island, a small island with 11 homes located in the middle of the waters of Lake Lure. We are situated on a hillside, with two large porches off the main living areas, comfortably furninished to capture the view while grilling, dining, entertaining, or relaxing. Our boat house offers 2 decks that overlook the big water of the lake...great water for swimming, launching the canoe and kayak, just floating, or jumping from atop the boathouse for the adventurous.

We are especially convenient & easily accessible from N.C. Highway 64/74A and within two miles (5 minute drive) of Ingles, a major, full-line grocery store and restaurants. The Town of Lake Lure and neighboring Chimney Rock are some 5 miles (12 minute+ drive), and an hour's drive of the interesting attractions of Asheville (Biltmore House

and Gardens), the shops at Black Mountain, Hendersonville (N.C.

Apple Country and home to renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio)

and Flat Rock (Carl Sandburg Home and the Flat Rock Playhouse).

Staying here is like a home away from home! Bee and Lou have thought of everything anyone would ever need for a wonderful vacation. The home is well
maintained,clean and comfortable. It's located in close proximity to the supermarket, restaurants and local attractions. There are lots of steps to the lake so you get lots of exercise in the bargain! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

A Perfect Lakeside Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I am surely blessed to have stumbled upon the LouBeeLure this Spring, and the long weekend I was able to spend here was not nearly long enough!

Located in a beautiful part of North Carolina, this property is welcoming inside and out. The listing is incredibly accurate, and no detail is overlooked in ensuring that every amenity and convenience is available. The interior was immaculately clean, and there is ample space for groups and families between the main and lower level living areas. With plenty of space for games, a great VHS and DVD selection, and a covered porch with a beautiful view, we had plenty to do when the sun wasn't shining.

The outdoor space is amazing! We enjoyed a few relaxing breakfasts on the patio with a great view of the lake, and the large charcoal grill is perfect for a cookout. The sun deck is spacious with a great opening to jump off into the lake if you have the courage! I would highly recommend enjoying an evening cruise in the canoe exploring the coves around Yacht Island as well. Might even hear some bullfrogs!

I had the privilege of meeting one of the property owners who was extremely kind and hospitable. She went out of her way to ensure that my stay was pleasant and relaxing.

My stay was more than comfortable, and with wonderful company it turned out to be one of the best weekends I can remember in quite a while. I would highly recommend the LouBeeLure for a fun and relaxing family or group vacation. Thanks for an amazing weekend!

My wife and I traveled from the coast to Lake Lure a for short visit with friends. We stayed in the loft suite, which had plenty of space for suit cases, shopping bags, etc. This suite was well furnished and private with a separate bath. The ground floor is also a separate suite. The house was immaculate with all amenities one would find in his own home. The wi-fi signal was strong enough for reception anywhere on the property.

For a visit with old friends, the decks overlooking the water quickly became our favorite gathering place. The lower deck provides easy access to the lake with kayaks, swim ladders and a picnic table. The upper deck (our favorite) is just off of the family room with a beautiful view of the lake. This is a great location for breakfast, or for drinks and hors d'oevres before going out to dinner.

The owners were attentive to our every need which made us feel more like close friends than house guests. This property is on a little island off of any thoroughfare and even though there are other houses nearby, there remained a sense of privacy everywhere.

For anyone looking for the perfect spot on Lake Lure, I can highly recommend the "LouBeeLure" lake house.

Wishing To Keep This Place A Secret

  • 5 of 5
At first I was hesitant to write anything about this wonderful place because I didn't want so many people knowing about it that I would never be able to book here again. But it is just too great of a place to keep to ourselves.

The house was on a perfect location on Lake Lure with beautiful views of the water and mountains. It was easy to find with low traffic on and off the island making it perfect for a quiet and peaceful location. The layout was fantastic in that it provided plenty of room for 6-8 people without all of us falling all over each other. The property was well maintained, very clean and everything worked. I am accustomed to staying in the "log cabin" style homes in this area with their great rooms and high ceilings and such, but enjoyed this place so much more as it was cozy, decorated to make you feel at home and laid out in such a way as to keep everyone feeling like a family with enough room to spread out when you wanted a little quiet time away from everyone else.

There were canoes and kayaks available for the lake, plenty of wood available for the fireplace, everything worked and we even had a guy that stopped by to be sure leaves and debris were blown off all the walkways and paths leading to the house and dock during our stay there.

Best of all, the owners were very gracious and cooperative in everything from reserving the place, to having all the information necessary at the house to be able to stay there comfortably to contacting us afterwards to ensure we had a good time. It was a very pleasant experience dealing with genuinely nice people.

I have been coming to Lake Lure for many years with this being the first time I stayed at LouBeeLure. I can guarantee this is the place I will want to return to every year from now on. That is, unless this secret gets out and it gets booked up!
