Lake Lure lodge description
The Lodge on Mirror Lake is one of the most unique properties in the Lake Lure, Chimney Rock area. Built in 1989 by a building contractor as his private home away from home, The Lodge got a face lift including new decking and a new tin roof when we purchased it in 2008. The Lodge boasts a three story fireplace built of granite with remote control gas logs on the main floor and a second gas log fireplace in the game room on the lower level. There are covered decks that wrap around on two levels and an open deck off the third floor bedroom that looks out over the lake. Inside the lodge are many original water color paintings by the owner's father and a natural wood vanity created by Nathan Rose of Rose Wood works in Belmont, North Carolina. The Lodge is situated on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water with 500 foot of shore line and its own private boat house complete with a paddle boat and a row boat. There is also a private white sand beach with a stone sea wall surrounding the property. The fishing is great as the mountain spring fed lake is stocked with bass, crappy and many other fish. Because there are no power boats on Mirror Lake you can actually see the fish in the crystal clear water. The swimming is also wonderful in the summer.
There is a waterfall that flows from Mirror Lake into the Broad River where you can fish for trout or cool off after a hike or picnic by the river all within the gated community of Riverbend. There is plenty of wildlife for nature lovers including great blue heron and other waterfowl, beavers and deer. The Lodge is just 5 miles from Downtown Lake Lure and Chimney Rock Park. Come and be our guest. Relax and enjoy the calm surroundings and get back to nature without leaving the gated community of River bend or explore Lake Lure on a guided tour where you will learn the history of this all season paradise! You might also enjoy climbing Chimney Rock or taking the elevator to the top of the rock. There a number of golf courses within a 10 mile radius of the property and many other attractions for the entire family. The Lodge is a perfect choice for weddings, honeymoons, and family reunions. We have had 80th and 90th birthday parties here with three generations of family members.

- A wonderful home for family gatherings! There are three decks to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather. The main level deck wraps around the side of the home with both a covered and an open area. The lower deck is covered and the deck off the upper level is open to enjoy the sunshine! You can fish, swim, and boat right off the dock at this fantastic lakefront home on Mirror Lake in Riverbend at Lake Lure. And there are no steps to the lake...just walk right out the door and down to the shore. Great fishing and access to a rowboat, paddleboat and canoe. You can hike in the neighborhood and enjoy nature's best. We are only 15 minutes from Chimney Rock State Park and also from the public access beach at Lake Lure. Also nearby: New Zip Line, Gem Mining. Plenty to do in one of the Carolina's most beautiful spots!...moreless

Wonderful place to stay
Wonderful place to stay
This house was by far one of the best we have stayed in during the last few years. The house was very clean and had just about everything that we needed. Everything was in excellent condition (with the exception of the couch which seemed a little worn) and very enjoyable. I tend to be a germ-a-phobe and I had no problem with anything in this house. My dogs loved the yard and the lake. We really appreciated the gates on the deck. I would highly recommend this property!

...while staying at the Lodge on Mirror Lake made it much easier to face..lol ! Just a little escape for a few days where we relaxed, cooked and fished ! Caught several different fish and snagged a huge snapping turtle. The setting was picture perfect and all accomodations were wonderful ! Very relaxing and would highly recommend. The lake was aptly named "Mirror Lake"... the reflections in the water were just ureal !

We were a large family with ages ranging from 22 month's to nearly 70, plus two dogs. Lodge on Mirror Lake could not have been a more spacious house in a more beautiful location and we all had a great time. The grand children and dogs had plenty of room to run and play and us older ones really appreciated the wrap around deck for just sitting and watching. The canoe or paddle boat were an adventurous means of transport over to the beach, to the delight off the young and old alike. Definitely on the list to do again.

Manager response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. A quiet, peaceful trip by paddle boat (except for laughter) is the only way to get to the beach area. We hope you visit us again. Thanks for staying in our home.

My husband and I took our son, daughter-in-law, two granddaughters and their dogs on a week vacation to The Lodge on Mirror Lake. The girls' other grandmother lives in Seattle and we thought it would be a wonderful memory for them to have both grandmas so we invited her and she was able to join us. Now, that being said, it was just perfect! The house was so big and nice; the pictures are nowhere near as attractive as the place is in person. Everything one could possibly want in a lake house was available for us including indoor games and outdoor sporting equipment including boats, life jackets, fishing poles, pool noodles..... The kitchen had plenty of dishes, pots and pans, etc. We brought our kayaks and bikes and the lake did the rest. We went on the boat tour of Lake Lure, climbed Chimney Rock and the younger members went zip lining while the three grands drove to Cherokee one day to try our luck in the casino. There are some really nice restaurants nearby including La Strada, Larkins on the Lake and, my personal favorite, El Lago, the best Mexican Food I've had!!!! The location gave us plenty of privacy which for me was a PLUS! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were thrilled with the house and Mirror Lake.
