Lake Lure house description

The Queen has been casting her spell on visitors to the Hickory Nut Gorge for over 80 years. She's been lovingly restored and is ready to work her spell on you. Make plans now to visit for a memorable getaway.

The Queen of the Lake’s magic starts when you arrive. Even the views from the off-street parking are mesmerizing. There are just a few short steps down to the entry and the first of many decks for enjoying the outdoors. Inside, the convenient porch that runs the width of the house lets you enjoy the majestic panorama in air conditioned comfort.

The comfortable furniture and large great room will entice you to grab a book and settle in, but you'll still be attracted to the wonderful scenery just outside the window wall. As the sun goes down, you'll want to gather together to review the excitement of hiking at Chimney Rock Park, located just minutes away, or other adventures like visiting Biltmore with its vineyard. This is a great house for a group gathering, with room for ten.

Three of the bedrooms are on the main floor. The master suite has a queen sized bed and the other two each have sets of twin beds and share the second upstairs bath-with a new marble shower. Downstairs is another queen bed with en-suite bath, plus a hide-a-bed that sleeps two. (All bed and bath linens are included in the basic rate.)

You'll enjoy numerous spots for sunbathing and swimming plus other numerous outside activities and nearby tourist sites. Otherwise you can cozy up and read or watch your favorite TV or DVDs, and there’s enough space that one part of your group won’t interrupt the others.

We now offer 2 paddleboards and 2 kayaks for our guests--NO EXTRA CHARGE!

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About: We were invited to visit friends at their Lake Lure cottage in the summer of 2012. When we left we realized that Lake Lure was one of those special places in the world that deserved a second visit. Our second visit that following fall began a quest to find a second home there. The beauty of Lake Lure tucked amongst the mountains together with the peacefulness of the laidback attitude of the lakeside families was very appealing. During this quest we looked at many homes, each with their strong points and weak points. Finally in early 2013 we found the perfect lake home that met all of our wants and needs.

                      Why Lake Lure:
                      The “Queen of the Lake” is the oldest winterized house on house on Lake Lure. Built in 1927, as Lake Lure was filling for the first time, this house was blessed with “great bones” and a full acre of lakefront views. Often older Lake Lure residents have commented that the builder of our home had his choice of any location on the lake, and he chose the best of all views. The first family to live in our house was the owner of a series of department stores in the South, and had built this house for family getaways. The most recent previous owners did a marvelous job of modernizing this home, gutted and re-built the kitchen, gutted and re-built the entire downstairs, added a lovely coffered ceiling to the great room, and expanded the decks. The top porch has been enclosed with glass and setup for year-round climate controlled use. The morning coffee on this porch is hard to beat. We are excited about the opportunity to enjoy all the amenities that Lake Lure offers. We are from the coastal region of North Carolina and can now take full advantage of what the state of NC has to offer, from the coast to the mountains. We are happy about the opportunity to share in our great find. -The Owens Family-

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The home is conveniently located half way between the town of Lake Lure and the Ingles Supermarket. It is located on the Lake where the main channel meets the heart of the Lake, offering views that are magical. There is ample parking right next to the house for easy access. Also there is a gently sloped walkway leading to the lake and boathouse. Once at the lake there is a conveniently located lakeside cabana with a functioning bathroom to save trips back to the house when nature calls. When the sun sets, the views from the boathouse deck are hard to beat. Everything is in place for a perfect vacation week.
