About Byron Marsh
Hello all, I am a true Lake Lure and Asheville native. My family has been on the lake for over 50 years and we still own one of our original lakeside homes. I am also happy to call Asheville NC home for over 30 years, where I was able spend most of my free time in the outdoors. From Asheville I moved away for college and went to UNCC, go FORTY NINERS! After college and some nine to five jobs I finally became my own boss and launched a property management/real estate business. With the business operating since 2015 we have been successful in providing people with lifelong memory vacations and also great places to call home.
Byron Marsh purchased this House in 2017
Why Byron Marsh chose Lake Lure
This property truly is an old gal brought back to life. We purchased the home in 2017 and began the journey of full restoration. It brings the outside in with the panoramic view once you walk in the front door. Our family has a lot of history on this lake, and we incorporated old memories from that, for instance our collection of family members skis from the Lake Lure Ski Club to the old paddles that were on our family canoes from the 60's, there is even a vintage ski photo of my father bare footing for the ski club shows. We know there are a lot of great new houses on the lake but there is something about those old time lake house characteristics that makes you feel like you are on a mountain getaway. I know this house will provide the lake memories that families cherish!
What makes this House unique
The views from either level of the house are truly to die for. You are able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and also the mountains. I think one of my favorite pastimes while at this house is just sitting and watching the boats pass by, but the best is when a old Chris Craft comes cruising through. At night its nice to take a sweet tea and sit out and watch the stars with the lighting bugs flashing around. You get to enjoy nature at its best from on top of the boathouse. Inside the house we wanted a very large open feel for the board game nights or socializing with family and friends. We incorporated a lot of natural wood with large beams and also vaulted wood ceilings along with big white oak flooring. During the remodel we tried to save as much of the original home as possible, for instance, some rooms have the original 1940's flooring that have that nice old sound about them. A couple of the bedrooms have old vintage sliding doors to also show how in tune we are with the history of the area.

Great location and accommodations
Byron - We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your Lake Lure property. The bedroom situation worked perfectly for our family. We also thank you for supplying the booster seat and pack and play for our grandchildren. The pontoon boat was an added bonus and we used it several times a day to either cruise around Lake Lure or go fishing.
Thanks again. We created many family memories in NC.
Sue, Mike and the rest of our family
We are so glad yall enjoyed your family vacation at NC's mountain lake. Also, are glad that the baby items came in handy, we are always here to help if we can. Thanks again for choosing our retreat. We would love to host you all again. Cheers
Love Lake Dog Property!
We loved our stay! Byron and his mom couldn’t be any nicer or more accommodating! We were able to escape Hurricane Dorian due to their kindness and hospitality. They graciously let us come a day early due to the impending storm. The house is perfect and very comfortable. The lake views are fabulous! Highly recommend and we can’t wait to come back!!
We are so glad we were able to help and also that the storm didn't affect you all. We would love to host your family anytime and are so glad that you guys loved the place. Cheers
Perfect Holiday Weekend!
Property was absolutely awesome and perfect for enjoying the lake!
Kevin we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed the place. It truly is a special place to create memories. We would love to have you back or if you guys decided to buy a house on the lake come say hello! Cheers.
Perfect if you want to unplug
Great house and views. Lake Lure is perfect for getting away from it all. The only downside for us was the lack of cell service all around Lake Lure and the curvy roads. It is not someplace I would want to drive around at night and because my daughter got motion sickness we spent most of our time at the house which was just fine with us. We just did not explore the area as much as we had planned.
We are so glad your family enjoyed the lake house. The lake is for sure a escape from the everyday life. Thanks again for choosing our retreat. We would happily open our doors to you all again.
This house is a private diamond in the rough! On the outside what appears to be a sweet looking cottage—open the door, and a long gorgeous panoramic view of Lake Lure hits you in the face! Stunning. Totally renovated, and everything you could possibly need or want for a family vacation. Beautiful and very comfortable accommodations.
Our family traveled from all over the country to meet here for our reunion.
Byron addressed an questions or issues immediately. Much care and pride goes into his homes. And Barbara—she IS THE DYNAMIC welcoming committee!!! Made our week!
The Meredith Family
Thank you guys for the fantastic review. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your family getaway at Lake Lure. We would love to host you all anytime.
Everything was wonderful! The floating chairs were a huge hit, as was the boat and paddle boards. The house was as advertised, although we had 9 adults and it states it sleeps 12. If you have children, that would work great with the 2 kings and 2 queens, pull out and blow up queen. We used the blowup queen bed (a fabulous blow up bed...sits up high!) and I brought a blow up single mattress.It was such great weather, we had one guest sleep outside under the covered porch all week! The hot tub was clean, althought we couldn't get it to go over 91. The kitchen has everything you can think of, and the layout of the upper floor makes it so wonderful to socailize while cooking. The view is unsurpassed. Byron and Barbara were excellent hosts, always available, and checked in on us during the week. We would definitely return for another stay. Thank you for a great vacation and 40th high school reunion!
