The perfect rental
"Beautiful home with an amazing views of chimney rock! The home was more than I'd imagined and stocked very well including movies, books and all cooking utensils. An added bonus were the canoe and kayaks. Our girls spent hours on the lake in them (every size life jacket available as well). The home was very clean, the only possible negatives are the basement stairs which are quite steep and a hole in the dock to be careful of. Overall a perfect vacation rental for our family!"

"The pictures really don't show how nice the lake is and how large the dock is - exactly what our family was looking for! I also think the house seemed bigger than the pictures look (the master bathroom is huge for instance). This would be the perfect house to share with another family for an easy vacation. The master and another queen bedroom (with an extra twin) are upstairs, each with their own bathrooms. The downstairs bunk room would sleep 7 little kids (if some doubled up on the full bunks) or 5 big kids/teens. The downstairs toilet did seem to be on the brink of a plumbing issue, but I think that's somehow how basement baths are. There is a nice sized washer/dryer downstairs which we were able to use and really appreciated.
I was a little nervous about the quality of Bald Mountain Lake since I had never heard of it, but the water was clear, deep and perfect for swimming. Our 3 kids spent all day jumping in and out of the water. Other docks nearby had families swimming too, but it was really quiet and private. We enjoyed the canoe and paddle boats as well as the floats available for use in the boat house. The owners have plenty of games there to keep you busy - foosball, darts, pool table, board games, etc. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy everything there was to offer - we didn't even watch TV, listen to all the music provided or really spend any time at the bar or pool table. We just hung out on the dock the whole time we were there and there is plenty of shade/seating down there as well. We didn't eat any meals in the house, but the kitchen seemed stocked (2 coffee makers even!) and the fridge/freezer (with ice maker) was large and perfectly cold. I can't say anything about the cable and internet because we were outside the whole time.
As for the resort, we enjoyed putt-putt ($5/pp) and we ate at the nearby pub/restaurant which had families and golfers alike. We did go to the beach and playground briefly, but we soon realized that the dock at the lake house was even nicer, so we went back there. There is a golf course onsite, so pack your clubs (I forgot to tell my husband this…).
The grocery store and gas station are about 15 minutes away, so stock up and fill up before arrival. There is a nice hiking trail just up the road from the house you can get to without getting in the car. Our family spent one afternoon in Saluda tubing at the Green River Cove Tubing company which was a highlight of the weekend."

"Three generations of three couples and two children stayed in this beautiful vacation cabin. Everyone enjoyed the week long stay. The cabin is large enough for individual times and for the group get-togethers. The fire pit by the river was an extra bonus on the warm summer nights. The soothing sounds of the river were enchanting. Fishing for rainbow trout right from the back yard was also a treat. The owner was easy to work with and any problems were addressed in a timely matter. Will always stay here on all our trips to The North Carolina Mountains."

"My family and I stayed at Sallie and Alan's condo at Lake Lure for the first time this Fall and had an amazing experience. The condo was clean and perfectly located close to the lake, resort activities and dining. The views from the condo were spectacular. Sallie and Alan were a pleasure and very accessible, flexible and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure our family had a great stay. We plan to return in the future and highly recommend the properpty. Great memories!"
