Lake Lure house description

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. All of this plus the use of our top of the line Premier Pontoon boat - new addition for 2014!

In 2010 We added a boat house with an extra large dock area for playing and fishing from 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).

We also updated our landscaping in 2011 & 2012 to improve the view from our home and expand the forest on our hillside.

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 - two new kayaks were added in 2010. 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 room for games and etc. allowing parents to quietly enjoy the view upstairs (or watch something other than cartoons on TV). 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 private.

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.

In addition to the views from the house, 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 24 foot pontoon boat included with the rental of the house!
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, there are two TVs, two DVD/VCR players and plenty of games for adults and kids. In addition, there is a washer and dryer in a large laundry room to help keep packing to a minimum.

When you are ready to head outside, you will find numerous chairs for lounging and tables for outdoor dining. If you are interested in the local area, we have provided brochures and ideas for things to do in the surrounding areas, lists of restaurants, stores and other information.

Finally, when you have enjoyed your day to the utmost, you will find fully made beds with down comforters ready for you to fall into and enjoy a peaceful nights sleep listening to the sounds of the lake and the forest.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We are excited to share our wonderful home, our new in 2014 Premier Sunsation pontoon boat and our boat house and deck on the water with our guests. We are big fans of sunsets and our home and dock have the premier sunset views on the lake.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure:
              Location on the lake has the best sunsets across the water with the mountains in the background while also being in a peaceful no wake cove. Beauty and tranquility with lots of family fun in the water. Plus, no jet ski's are allowed on the lake providing smooth water and, more importantly, relaxing quiet on the water and around the lake. The rental includes the use of our Premier Sunsation pontoon boat.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house is 'in the trees' and the dock, boathouse and deck are on the water - all have incredible sunset views. Plus, you can ride around the lake on our new in 2014 Premier Sunsation pontoon boat as well as paddle around on our 2 kayaks, all of which are included with the rental. The combination of a pontoon boat and the no wake cove provide countless hours of fun like few other properties on the lake. Our caretaker will alo greet you at our home and take care of you throughout the week.
