Located walking distance to hiking trails. Also 5 minutes to hiking in Chimney Rock State Park and swimming, fishing and boating on Lake Lure and fishing in the Rocky Broad River. Horseback riding and 2 championship golf courses are within 30 minute drive. Hendersonville, home of the N.C. Apple Festival, is only 25 minutes away. Asheville and the Biltmore Estate are within 1 hour drive.
Why Lake Lure: After vacationing in rental homes for years in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we decided to buy our own cabin in what we feel is the most beautiful part of North Carolina - Lake Lure! We were working with builders and trying to find the 'perfect' lot when we discovered Chimney Lure Retreat! We love the closeup view of one of the greatest natural attractions in NC - Chimney Rock. We never realized how many hours we would spend sitting on each of our three decks viewing not only Chimney Rock, but deer, turkeys, skunk, hummingbirds, and yes, even an occasional bear! Shortly after purchasing Chimney Lure Retreat, the state bought up acres of land right down the street and now we have only a five minute walk to what hikers and mountain climbers consider one of the most beautiful forests in the country! We spend hours boating and swimming on Lake Lure, tubing down the river, shopping in Chimney Rock, Black Mountain, Hendersonville, and Asheville, and of course hiking in Dupont Forest, Cataloochee, & Old Fort. With the Blue Ridge Prky being only 45 minutes away, we often take day trips and hike up around Pisgah. We go horseback riding and are looking forward to trying out the new zip lining at Canopy Ridge Farms, which is only 15 minutes from the cabin. We spend hours exploring the rivers, looking for favorite fishing spots.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love the fact that we can stay in the cabin for a week with extended family and friends, with each 'group' being able to claim their own floor for privacy, but then there is enough room on each floor to congregate for food and fellowship. We usually split our meals between cookouts on the deck and eating at one of the many awesome restaurants only five to twenty minutes from our home.
