Best Waterfront on Lake Lure. Family Fun! Specials Year-Around

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We BOAST the BEST WATERFRONT on Lake Lure ... Perfect for water lovers and water watchers. Our beautiful, newly constructed, boat house includes a big dock for rocking chairs both in or out of the sun... We have a water level dock that allows you to dangle your feet in the water just to get cooled down.

For a full swim, our wide steps allow you to slowly enter the water.....or you can be adventursome and jump or dive off the end of each of our swim docks or really get out there by jumping off the top of our double slotted boat house.... Quite a thrill... No one has ever touched bottom by jumping off the top of our boat house.

For sun lovers, bring your sunscreen cause our boat house deck is huge and gets full sun all day.... but when you get hot, all you have to do is jump off the top for a quick cool down. We supply ski belts, just to be safe... also blue rubberized floats and a peddle paddle boat for seeing the lake.

For shade lovers, rock comfortably on our shade screened lakefront porch or sit on our outside fully shaded patio with hammock. You can still see all the action on the lake. In fact all of the rooms in our cottage have a beautiful view of Rumbling Bald Mountain and the lake.

So we are nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachian Chain, on the crystal clear, emerald waters of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world (National Geographic 1954), our lake front cottage's perfect location allows for active as well as 'laid back' vacationers during all seasons. With three, 18 hole golf courses in a three mile radius, municipal tennis courts, horseback riding, sight seeing, shopping, water sports, and wonderful restaurants within in a 20 minute drive, our guests can play till they drop.

Swimming, skiing, and floating the lake's currents are wonderful activities May through September, after which you will need a wet-suit and a warm wood fire blazing in our fireplace. Be certain to bring hot chocolate! But most of all ENJOY IT ALL!

Our cottage has 4 bedrooms..on the upper level there is a bedroom with a king and queen bed, and a second bedroom with a double. There is a bath room on the upper level.On the main level there is a bath and a bedroom with a king bed and a single bed. On the lower level is a bunk room (not accessable from main house, has own entrance) queen bed and a bathroom. Perfect for children of all ages.. plus 2 sleeping cots on the lake front porch

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family needed a place to relax and unwind, and we found it here! This house was a great mix of conveniences and comfort, so we felt at home enough to put up our feet and enjoy the views and each other's company. This unpretentious cottage welcomed us with open arms, with its cleanliness and its character. The moumtain and lake views available from every window added to the pleasure of our stay - and we will be back!

We slept in every morning so didn't see the ghost, but if there is one, it must be a friendly spirit because the home was filled with good vibes!

Great Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was one of two houses that I rented for a family reunion on Lake Lure. We had children aged two to eighteen, as well as adults over 75. Everyone had an awesome time. The house was well furnished, with a nice kitchen. The outside accessed spare bedroom had a full sized refrigerator/freezer which was quite convenient for cold beverages while on the upper deck. The outside deck was spacious, with outdoor games for the kids and a great high jump into the lake. They had a nice paddle boat and canoe, as well as floats, life-vests, and paddles. The house was clean and well kept, and the views were gorgeous. I highly recommend this house.

Excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are very thankful to Jason for helping us put a last minute spring break vacation together after the first place we rented canceled on us two days before we were scheduled to arrive.

We absolutely loved the lake house.

Tons of room, comfortable beds and all the kitchen utensils you would need to grill out or cook.

The view is awesome!!!

We enjoyed sitting on the large deck on top of the boat house and relaxing.

It was definitely a plus to have access to the canoe and the paddle boats! They kept the kids entertained without us having to go spend a bunch of money renting them.

Chimney rock state Park is just down the road.

We are definitely going back in the fall if it's available to rent!

Fantastic views and great water access for swimming!

  • 4 of 5

Our family just completed a week at the Allen Cottage. We found the cottage and its amenities to be exactly as advertised. The cottage was very cozy and comfortable with ample places to relax as you would wish for. The large deck is perfect for sunning, sitting in the shaded side, or just watching the boats going by all day. The swimming area is safe and deep, ample floats, life jackets were available. The location was on a side road with little to no traffic to take away from the beauty of the lake. We found the cottage to be very clean with everything we needed to prepare great meals. We would definitely return if the opportunity arises. Thank you to the responsive owners.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Close your eyes for just a moment and imagine you are on vacation on the shores of a beautiful lake nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina. Do you feel the cool breeze blowing through the trees? Do you see the sun shining on the water? Do you smell hamburgers on the grill? Do you hear the laughter of children playing? Do you sense the tug of a fish on the other end of your line? Do you feel the refreshment of swimming in a mountain lake? Do you see a view of the mountains and the lake that is so magnificent it doesn’t seem real?

If you can visualize any of these things, you will catch a glimpse of the unforgettable memories on our vacation at Lake Lure, N.C. May 10-17, 2014. This charming vacation home on the waterfront of Lake Lure has everything you need to enjoy memories that will last a lifetime. You will feel like you are at home the minute you walk through the door. This 4-bedroom home includes extra beds on the porch and in the living area; this vacation retreat could easily accommodate 3 families. There is a 1,000+ square foot deck on the water that is perfect for spending time with your family and friends and enjoying a view that you will not believe. There is a hammock, outside dining area, fire pit, grill, screened porch, and boat house with a canoe and paddleboat that can be used by guests.

Chimney Rock State Park is only a few miles away and offers breathtaking views. Pontoon boat tours, hiking trails, and all lake activities are favorite attractions for those who are enjoying Lake Lure. Local restaurants on the water offer delicious food and gorgeous views.

We live less than 30 miles away in Marion, N.C., and we were amazed at this hidden treasure in our own back yard. Our vacation included cookouts, pontoon boat tours of Lake Lure, swimming, fishing, jogging with our 3-year old yellow lab (she enjoyed the vacation more than anyone), a day at Chimney Rock State Park, enjoying some local restaurants on the water, and spending a lot of time on the deck treasuring the view and the fellowship with our family and friends.

Having traveled to over 25 states and 5 countries including several trips to Canada, we have seen some spectacular scenery in our lives, but none more beautiful than Lake Lure, N.C. We highly recommend the home for your next vacation and cannot wait to go back ourselves!

Best waterfront is no joke!

  • 4 of 5

From the screen porch down to the deck on top of the boathouse, this is probably the best house we've stayed at on the lake. There were some minor things about the house itself that could use some improvement, but you're not there to hang out inside anyway. Jason (owner) was very easy to work with and my group will certainly look to stay here again in the future. Plenty of space, great outdoor area, and amazing waterfront!
