Lake Lure house description

Looking for a peaceful, private retreat combined with a plethora of nearby amenities? Look no further! Our home is on peaceful Bald Mountain Lake, a 65 acre private lake just a mile north of Lake Lure and is also just three minutes away from the Club House at Rumbling Bald Resort and all its amenities. Enjoy the beautiful southwest-facing, long-water view of the lake and Bald Mountain right from our large three-sided wrap-around deck. A Jon boat, two kayaks and a paddle boat that seats four are included in the rental, so you can explore the surrounding natural beauty. Our 'Tranquility Chalet' is the perfect place for family gatherings, romantic getaways, golfing reunions or just plain down-time. Only 23 miles SE of Asheville, it is an easy drive from Charlotte (93 miles), Greenville (70 miles) and Atlanta (215 miles).

Set in a tranquil corner of the lake, our home is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate in a quiet, private setting. Enjoy boating and swimming in warm weather and hiking the year-round. As owner/members of the resort, our guests have access to all resort amenities, including beach and lakefront swimming, two 18-hole Championship golf courses, two driving ranges, three restaurants and two lounges, three swimming pools (one indoor heated), indoor whirlpool spa, massage therapist, manicurist and facialist, private fishing on Bald Mountain Lake, kayak, canoe and paddleboat rental, sport fishing on Lake Lure, lighted tennis courts, horseshoes, adult fitness classes, playground, daily adventure outings (May to August), multipurpose aerobics and classroom, exercise and fitness equipment room, steam and dry saunas, multi-use sports court, bocce ball court, croquet court, zero-entry pool with lazy river, 18-hole miniature golf course, sand volleyball, as well as a sunset dinner cruise. You also have the option of renting boats to explore either lake. Please note that a few of the amenities require additional fees, such as golf, rental of equipment, etc., however the rates are reasonable.

Lake Lure was selected as one of the ten most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic. Lake Lure and Bald Mountain Lake are nestled in the serene setting of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You will discover the magic and bounty of nature in this wondrous canyon known as Hickory Nut Gorge. For the adventurous, horseback riding, zip line tours, white water rafting and tubing are available nearby. Other surrounding areas include Asheville, with a great farmers market and is the home of the beautiful Biltmore Estate, and Chimney Rock State Park (13 mi) that features hiking, bird watching, rock climbing, waterfalls, and quaint shopping. Black Mountain, Bat Cave, and Rutherfordton are also close by so there is lots to do. Major motion pictures filmed here include Firestarter, A Breed Apart, Dirty Dancing, and Last of the Mohicans.

Built in the classic A-frame mountain home style, our home consists of four bedrooms, two on each floor. Each floor has a main room with a queen bed. The additional room upstairs has two twins, while the additional room downstairs has bunk beds and another twin bed. There is a full bath on each floor. The family room features a 55 inch LCD HDTV, HD cable, BlueRay/DVD player, comfortable couch and leather recliner/rockers and a stone fireplace. The kitchen is fully-equipped and has been remodeled with all new Stainless Steel Appliances and Granite Counter tops. Bring your own K cups if you are a Keurig Coffee lover! A washer and dryer are included downstairs.

We think you'll spend most of your time outdoors on the decks including the screened in porch which has comfortable outdoor furniture and a large four-burner LP gas grill. The home has a three-sided wrap around deck. The west facing deck features a large round granite table, perfect for gathering around and recapping the day’s activities and planning tomorrow’s. Adirondack chairs and a bistro table and chairs are also provided to enjoy the excellent view of Bald Mountain Lake, Shumont (distinctive for its two peaks), and Bald Mountain. The large deck is lovely for early morning coffee, solitude and bird watching. In late afternoon, the light comes from behind the mountains across the lake, creating an extraordinarily pacific atmosphere. The north side deck attaches to a walkway ramp which descends from the driveway / parking area, and features a small gazebo with a loveseat and side table for those in search of additional quiet time. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has a shallow attached walk-out deck as well.

Our home is a non-smoking environment and pets are not allowed. Rental agreement must be signed by a responsible occupant age 25 or older.

If you are planning on flying in, the Asheville (AVL) or Greenville/Spartanburg (GSP), airports are the closest. Greenville/Spartanburg, SC is highly recommended: easy-in, easy-out and the best drive in (about one hour).

NOTE: All rooms have been freshly updated with new furnishings along with the kitchen and both bathrooms. Remodeled during 2013 and 2014. We have arranged 'on-the-ground, boutique' property management to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Jim & Phyl have been married for over 30 years, have three adult children and live in Winfield, IL. They are co-owners of a healthcare company. Jim runs the business and Phyl is also a registered nurse at a local hospital.

          Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure:
          We made our first trip to Western North Carolina eight years ago and fell in love with the combination of mountains, lakes, outdoor activities, less congestion and southern hospitality. Coincidentally, our first trip included a visit to Lake Lure. Eight years later, and after lots of hard work our dreams have become a reality. We found the perfect location: a lakefront home with the perfect view of Bald Mountain Lake and Bald Mountain, and we are able to enjoy all the amenities at Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure less than one mile away!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Bald Mountain is a peaceful lake (no motor boats) which makes it the perfect lake for kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, or just plain old relaxing! And if you want lots of activities and amenities, our guests can take advantage of the amenities at Rumbling Bald Resort and all the action on Lake Lure!
