Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Truly special property that makes the most of an ideal location and

allows you to feel like you are on vacation the moment you arrive.

It is located on wide and quiet cove and is the prime location on

Lake Lure to take in panoramic views of the mountains, Chimney Rock,

Hickory Nut Gorge, and especially for viewing beautiful sunsets

across the lake. Our new Premier 18 foot pontoon boat is also included with the rental and it is a great way to tour the lake, go to lunch, go fishing, go swimming and enjoy the lake to the fullest.

The no-wake cove allows for protected swimming while being moments

away from the main channel in the pontoon boat that is included with

the home.

We added a boat house in 2010 that includes a large raised deck 15 ft off the water to create fantastic place to relax down by the lake, watch family and friends swim and play in the water as well as watch sunset. This will also provide shade down at the lake throughout the day to maximize comfort for everyone who is spending the day down 'on the water'. We have also added free high speed wifi and free local and long distance calling(US only).

Also, road access to the cove is ideal with a private road that is less than half mile off of Highway 74 allowing you to avoid the many twists and turns required to reach some areas of Lake Lure -and only 5 minutes from the new full scale Ingles grocery store.

The structure of this home has been designed to make the most of

this ideal location. It has the feel of a mountain home with its

peaked roof and cedar exterior. It is surrounded by century old

trees proving shade, privacy, and the feeling of being in a mountain

retreat. Situated at the top of the hill overlooking the lake allows

for easy access when unloading or loading the car while making the

most of the amazing views.

You enter the main room to vaulted ceilings of rich wood that

provide an open and airy feeling. There is a beautiful fieldstone

fireplace which provides a cozy atmosphere in the summer and

especially in the fall/winter while further adding to the mountain

retreat atmosphere.

The center piece of the home is the two plus stories of windows that

provide expansive views of the lake and the mountains. The open

floorplan allows guests to sit and talk, work in the kitchen and eat

dinner - all while taking in the spectacular views.

The main floor has a private bedroom with a queen bed and a full

bathroom for those who want to limit climbing of stairs. The

upstairs has a private bedroom with a queen bed and a private half

bath. The bedroom connects to a loft which overlooks the main room

and has full view of the floor to ceiling windows and fireplace. Sky

lights also add to a feeling that you are living in the trees. The

loft is semi-private and has a trundle bed (two twin beds).

The lower floor is a huge master suite which includes a sitting area

and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that also look out over the

lake - the room is over 400 square feet! It has a king bed and one

trundle bed (two twin beds) as well as a sitting area for enjoying

the morning sunlight or lounging in the afternoon. The lower bedroom

also has a full bath. If you choose for this to be a 'kids room,' it

has a TV and plenty of space to play games and etc. allowing parents to quietly enjoy the

view upstairs. The

downstairs opens out onto a covered deck with adirondack and rocking

chairs for lounging in the shade. If you choose to use this room as

an adult room, it is a great place to cool down and relax in


Not only does the inside of the house make the most of the location,

so does the outside. There are two huge decks extending out to the

lake. The upper deck extends off the main level and is perfect for

barbecuing (there is a gas grill) and enjoying dinner outside. The

lower deck extends off the master suite/kids room and is a perfect

place to enjoy some shade and quietly read a book in the afternoon.

Both provide an amazing view of the lake and the mountains.

When you are ready to venture away from the house and enjoy the

lake, you are steps away from paradise. The spacious dock and boathouse with deck (new in 2010)has a 180 degree view like few others on the lake. You can take in the view while sitting on the dock or go for a swim in the

protected no-wake cove. Sunset from the dock is something not to be

missed! When you desire even more adventure, we have a 22 foot

pontoon boat included with the rental of the house! The boat

comfortably seats 7-8 allowing the whole family a chance to fully

enjoy the lake. Two kayaks are also available down at the boat house to enjoy the lake.

As the location and home provide a feeling of immediately being on

vacation, we want our service to as well. Therefore, we have worked

to provide every convenience necessary. Your first experience of

this will be when our caretaker, Debbie, greets you at the door to

give you a tour of the house and demonstrate how to use the boat.

You will then find a full kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator,

microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and plenty of dishes and utensils

for cooking and eating. For entertainment%2

Awesome Trip with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I needed a weekend getaway when he came home from being in Afghanistan for a year and this seemed like the perfect getaway for the two of us. Well I was right, from the time I contacted Tim the owner about renting the property until the time we left everything went smooth. Tim was quick to reply to my email to rent his home and he answered all of my questions. When we arrived to the house Debbie the caretaker was there waiting to greet us, she was very nice and told us about the area and places we could go to eat or shop and she told us about the house. She really made us feel at home! As far as how the weekend stay went we had a great time. The house was clean and very cozy with plenty of room for a large family. The views of the lake and the mountains were beautiful right from the deck of the house. The stairs to the dock were a little challenging but totally doable, We didn't feel so bad eating junk food after walking up and down the stairs! It was great being able to travel around the lake in the pontoon boat that is included in the rental, we found lots of little coves that are great for fishing, we caught small mouth bass and yellow perch. The view from the boat was amazing, once you get to the middle of the lake you are surrounded by mountain views we got plenty of great pictures. Everything about this stay was perfect and we look forward to returning to this house for future family vacations. You will not be disappointed with this vacation rental!
