Property Details

Updated: Mar 9, 2015
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).

Tranquil Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We Had a wonderful 3 day stay at this delightful getaway on Lake Lure. This spacious house was right on the water. We went swimming off the deck and spent time on the lake with the provided kayaks. The view from the property was spectacular. I would highly recommend LouBeeLure to anyone looking for a great place to restore mind, body, and spirit.

We had a great time relaxing, boating, and site seeing. The view of the lake was great from the many deck/dock areas. We enjoyed the boating, kyacking, and swimming. The lake house was comfortable, cozy, and very well equiped. We also foud the area restaurants to be excellent, and enjoyed strolling through the small towns. It was our first time at Lake Lure and we loved the area and your accommodations.

Owner's Response: CT & Holly,

Thank you for posting the short, sweet, 5 star review; I know the process has gotten more complicated with log-in required.

We loved having you and thanks for choosing us. I hope you and your family will return when you're able to stay longer.

Best wishes,

Cozy home, great location!

My family took our annual vacation to the mountains and this year decided to stay at Lake Lure. We needed a place large enough to house eight people and came across Loubeelure on VRBO. I contacted Miss Bee and got everything set up, which is a very easy process and Miss Bee is wonderful to work with! The house is great, clean and roomy with a wonderful view of Lake Lure. There are two levels of decks and a boathouse with a deck on top of it. There is a canoe and kayak, which my family had a great time paddling around the lake. The supermarket Ingles is close by, as well as many local restaurants. There are also many attractions close by such as Chimney Rock, Mt. Mitchell and the boat tours of Lake Lure. I would certainly recommend Loubeelure as a great place for a family vacation!

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!
