Lakewood Chalet is an elegant 3 BR/2 BA spacious log home located on Shumont Lake, a private extension of Lake Lure in the beautiful Rumbling Bald Mountain Resort, within the Fairfield Mountains of Lake Lure, NC.

The home sits among tall, mature trees on a large, nicely landscaped lot directly on the lake. A spacious driveway accommodates four-plus cars.
The main floor features a 'great room' with fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows offering an unobstructed view of the trees and the lake. A stone fireplace dominates the room over which a nice 42' FLAT-PANEL 1080p HI-DEFINITION PLASMA TV is placed, with BLU-RAY DVD and 5.1 Hi-Fi SURROUND SOUND speakers and Subwoofer and Dish Network HD satellite service for plenty of entertainment as well as a chess game table & set and a fully stocked bookcase for reading selections (perfect... for a rainy day). Optional lighting is by candles, cozy lamps, and adjustable down-lights. High-speed WIRELESS INTERNET is accessible throughout the property. Every room is decorated professionally and has ceiling fans. There is plenty of comfortable furniture.
The large, fully-screened rear porches (one on each floor!) look out over the mountain foilage and landscaped rear yard, the outdoor deck, and the quiet lake beyond. Wooded lots on both sides assure quiet and privacy. A lighted stone pathway leads to the cabin entrance as well as down to the lake and your own private dock and rowboat. Swim or paddle, or just enjoy the sun. Behind the Chalet is a beautiful shaded deck with comfortable outdoor furniture, torch lights, a gas grill, and a huge custom-built outdoors free-standing wood-burning fireplace stocked with firewood to use in the summer when the indoor fireplace is disabled. Enjoy the sunset away from the evening chill while warming to a bonfire on your private outdoor patio. (Use caution during dry-weather periods)

ReviewsWrite a review
What an amazing weekend we had at the Elegant Lakeside Chalet!! Loved pulling up to our rental and all of us gasping at how beautiful the house was inside and out. No stone left unturned in this gorgeous home. Attention to detail was not unnoticed. Every comfort was provided from the fully stocked kitchen, to the super comfortable beds. We met our best friends from Fla. there and spent two days, laughing,eating and relaxing in a Golden Pond type setting. Making smores on the outdoor patio fireplace was the end to our last night. It was our first time staying in the Rumbling Bald Resort and won't be our last. So many amenities within the resort, including an excellent restaurant overlooking Lake Lure, beautiful golf courses,boat rentals,pools,miniature golf. What more could you want. We did ride into town Sat. night for a wonderful dinner at Larkins On The Lake. Can't say enough good things about this rental. You will not be disappointed!!!

Felt like our home away from home!
Felt like our home away from home!
What a wonderful cabin - from the moment we got here, it felt like home! Nicely furnished, full kitchen with everything we could need/want and more! My favorite was the back porch - covered the full length of the house and gave a great view of the lake and was the most quiet peaceful place I have been in a long time. My husband and son spent some time fishing on the lake - thanks for the use of your rowboat! My son caught a big brim that looked like it was on steroids! We also took advantage of the outdoor fireplace to make smores. Would love that fireplace as the weather turns cooler! We liked that we were 5 minutes from the Rumbling Bald Resort so we could take advantage of their amenities! Great place - would (and have) recommend it to anyone - would be great for a romantic getaway but had plenty of room for a smaller family too. Hope to stay there again.

Great Lakefront Chalet!
Great Lakefront Chalet!
My family of 5 stayed here over spring break and had a wonderful time. The house had a beautiful view of the lake which my boys fished in every morning and night! The dock and fishing boat were very convenient and provided hours of entertainment for our kids. I personally enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the amazing views of Lake Lure and Rumbling Bald Mountain. We were very close to the resort where we swam, played putt putt, took a boat tour of Lake Lure and played baseball on their big open field. The house was a perfect size for our family of 5. The beds were comfortable, and the tv surround sound was great for our family movie nights! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and there was lots of sitting areas for meals. We also taught our boys to play chess because there were so many chess sets around the house! I highly recommend this cabin.

Paradise at Lakefront Chalet
Paradise at Lakefront Chalet
My family stayed at Lakefront Chalet during Easter weekend. What an awesome place. The decorations inside and outside are beautiful. This cabin is also in a great location for daily excursions. The amenities are also plentiful. If you can think of it … this cabin has it. The cabin was a perfect size my family of 4 and we really enjoyed the screen porch overlooking the lake as well as the dock and rowboat. As a renter of this cabin you also have access to the Rumbling Bald Resort however we never made it there. We were having too much fun on our little lake (Shumont Lake). Oh yea, bring the marshmallows, Hersey bars, and graham crackers. They come in very handy when capping off a night by the outdoors fireplace. Last but not least, we reserved this cabin through Buffalo Junction Properties (Lake Lure Resort Realty). This company provided great service to assure that all our needs were met. The rental process went very smoothly. We will definitely utilize Lake Lure Resort Realty when we re-visit Lakefront Chalet. Tracy - thanks for being customer led!

Owner response: My wife and I have devoted a lot of time and energy in making the Lakewood Chalet a warm and comfortable home for us, and for you, our guests. So we are pleased at this five-star review and look forward to your future visits. Buffalo Junction Properties ensures that our hospitality transfers to every guest -- we appreciate their personal and professional support in making every visit memorable. Please come back!
First, the photos don't due this cabin justice. No fault of the photographer. I tried to take some shots, but it is difficult to capture the beauty of this cabin. Before arriving, we looked at this cabin on multiple websites and viewed multiple photos. Only when we pulled up to the cabin did we realize how beautiful it actually is. My wife and I spent a week here with our twin six-year-olds and loved every minute of it. While we were a short drive to the amenities of Rumbling Bald Resort and Lake Lure, we had our own semi-private lake behind the cabin. It's a small lake shared by a handful of houses, but it felt like our own private lake since we rarely saw our neighbors. The deck is great and the fireplace a hit especially on smores night. This cabin is perfect for the small family or two couples.

A Wonderful Getaway Weekend!
A Wonderful Getaway Weekend!
The elegant chalet is indeed elegant!! From the beautiful artwork, furnishings, and accessories, this chalet has it all!! We so enjoyed the big outdoor fireplace every evening and lighted candles you provided all through out the house. Special touches were greatly appreciated from coffee, firewood, and the management company was fantastic! They were thoughtful, informative, and friendly!! The beds were extremely comfortable and the porch outside was wonderful for our morning coffee. Very close to Lake Lure. It was a great jumping off point for excursions into Asheville, Brevard and the surrounding mountains and of course Lake Lure. We hope to return soon to your beautiful home. Thank you again for a great weekend!!!
