Breathtaking views of Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the lake and mountains are absolutely breaktaking in person. The colors at sunset are forever changing and beautiful to watch especially in the boat. The house was gorgeous and ready for us to move right in. Plenty of towels in each of the 4 bathrooms and fresh linens on all the beds. The well supplied kitchen allowed us to cook anything we wanted. Or there are plenty of great restaurants to visit by boat or car. Chimney Rock Village has lots of stores to browse & local restaurants to choose from. And Ashville is not far away for a day of shopping or a visit to the Biltmore House. I recommend this home to anyone that wants a relaxing vacation.

Best summer vacation in a long time!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the week with family. The house was clean, was large enough that 8 people had room to spread out and not feel like we were on top of each other, there was a ton of stuff to do, and when we had a question or concern we just called the house caretaker and she would help us in any way we needed.

The house came with linens that were in good shape, it was nice not to have to bring our own. The layout of the house was great that the rec room was downstairs so my two sons could go down and play bumper pool and other games and they did not have to worry about being too loud. The boat house and deck were wonderful at the water, it was nice to have a sunny area and a shady area to sit at by the water. And having a pontoon boat to explore the lake with was perfect. We boated to some of the other restaurants like Larkins and boated to the public beach and did the water slides.

We had an amazing week and would love to come back soon!

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful vacation home! We arrived to a very cozy, inviting and clean home. The caretaker had everything ready for us upon arrival; air/heat adjusted, clean linens stocked in all bathrooms etc. There was even a pack & play available that we used for our baby!

We had a wonderful time out on the water in a well kept boat and enjoyed many beautiful sunsets.

This is an excellent family vacation home, we will definitely return for future vacations!

Well kept secret....

  • 5 of 5

This is a well kept Lake Lure secret. A very quiet location with a million dollar view off the back patio. Truly idyllic. Homey, well kept house with some neat surpirses to it. A game room in the bottom, a porch with easy access to bedrooms, and well maintained boat and dock area. Everything worked as it should. Its a neat place for a family reunion. It's convenient to stores, restaurants, and other tourist destinations. A good place to base out of for excursions in the local area. Very accommodating owner, and friendly caretaker.

Gorgeous home, gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice, most recently in July, and it's been a pleasure both times. The house is not only gorgeous (and huge!) but also kept immaculate. The caretaker and owner definitely keep this house in perfect condition. There's also plenty of room for big families without feeling cramped.

The house is perfectly situated to capture some amazing mountain views - pictures just don't do it justice. Personally, I never wanted to move off the porch - but if the view isn't enough to keep you occupied, touring the lake in the pontoon boat is a lot of fun. There's also so much to see and do within a short drive of this house - hiking, Chimney Rock (& Chimney Rock Village), lots of great little restaurants, etc. I recommend this rental 100%!

What a Grand Way to Spend Tax Day (April 15th) !!

  • 5 of 5

After a flight from my home town, it was a breath-taking and tranquil view as I dropped my luggage to sit on the porch and capture the moment! The home decor was warm and cozy, in addition to being impeccibly straightened and cleaned. All the amenities were at one's finger tips, with nothing to ask for; from the kitchen being fully stocked, to the playroom / den with the games, to the pontoon with all the necessary safety equipment! We had a FABULOUS time relaxing, playing, and scouting the town (and all the stores)!

After all the work for Tax Day ... we could not have picked a more relaxing and comfortable rental to wind down at! This is the home and place to be no matter what your vacation agenda is ... this home and surrounding area has it all!!
