Why Greg chose Lake Lure

Our family had vacationed in Lake Lure for years because of the beauty of the mountains rolling down to the lake. It is a quite town, but is very family oriented with all lake activities (boating, fishing watersking, siteseeing), Chimney Rock Park, the resort golf courses, tennis, spa, indoor pool, putt putt golf, you name it. One of the kids favorite activities is to go drive around the resort at dusk and take pictures of all the deer, turkey, and other wildlife. We fell in love the the majesty of this home, with its grand views, massive flagstone walls, and the Lodge feel of the interior.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we arrived for our wedding weekend, we found the lodging we had reserved, Mountains Highland Lodge, to be breathtakingly beautiful, clean, and decorated immaculately. It was the perfect backdrop for our rehearsal dinner celebration, where guests could meander from the large wrap around porch to the vast living area and kitchen to grab a drink or bite to eat. It was cozy, yet large enouch to easily accommodate a party of 50 guests!

Wonderful home for large group

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our annual extended family trip MLK week-end. The kitchen has plenty of cooking items, dishes etc. The view is gorgeous not only from the great room but also from both large decks and 3 of the bedrooms. There is plenty of seating in the great room as well as the dining room! I would highly recommend this home for a gathering of multiple families!

70th Birthday Bash

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family came to Lake Lure to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday....what a perfect house this was,something for everyone. We cooked great dinners in the kitchen and could all eat together at the same table. The kids all loved hanging out in the downstairs level, which was great for all the adults. The resort amenities were perfect for all......great golf, we especially liked Apple Valley and the kids absolutely loved the lazy river did the adults. Just a wonderful place to celebrate any event........this is definitely on our return list. Thanks for all who made this house so special!

Highlands Review

  • 4 of 5

The house is gorgeous and a great home for an extended family to be able to stay all together. The views are good. There were some broken chairs on the deck, the lp tank for the grill was completely empty and the dryer didn't work. I would have like to have been given a list of all that was included as we had to go buy coffee filters (even though a packet of coffee was supplied) and there were just towels for the house - we forgot about beach towels. If the dryer worked this wouldn't have been a problem.

We will definitely rent through vrbo again and will probably go back to Lake Lure again some day and would recommend this to family and friends.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. This is the first time we heard the dryer did not work. One call to us or the resort and it would have been fixed. Most likely the dial had issues, it will be checked ASAP. Also, if the lp tank for the grill is empty, one call tothe resort and they would have brought up a new tank. With back to back rentals in the summer, house cleaning catches 99% of the checklist. Thank you and come again

A Luxurious Tree House!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family reunion and it was absolutely PERFECT in every way! The home is impeccably kept with spacious gathering areas and lovely bedrooms. The view is spectacular especially from the crystal clear, clean hot tub. Sitting on the deck in the evening, we felt transported to a childhood tree house!

We are all cooks and had a wonderful time preparing meals and relaxing at the extra long kitchen table. The kitchen is well stocked however we would suggest bringing your own sharp knives.

We had the BEST vacation and took advantage of all the resort has to offer. The grandchildren loved the lazy river pool and the adults enjoyed the spa, tennis courts and lake activities.

The staff is friendly and helpful. When we called guest services to report that the gas tank for the grill was empty, someone showed up in minutes with a new one!

We were told that the resort was empty during our visit so we can only comment on this week in particular. We never felt crowded at the pool and we had access to all the amenities spur of the moment.

The owner was extremely helpful. We had rented a home on the lake that did not meet our expectations and Greg saved our family reunion by arranging for our rental of his magnificient home. Thank you Greg and the staff at Rumbling Bald for making our family reunion most memorable!

Family Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the past 5 years our family has been meeting at Lake Lure. We come from South Carolina, Tennessee, and three locations in North Carolina. It is the only time all year we can all be together and it is "the best weekend of the year" for all of us. We have stayed at a couple of other properties before finding this JEWEL of a house! It is perfect for our family! And we love having access to all of the facilities at the resort. We will be booking this property again and again. We are looking forward to our next reunion in the fall.

A great place for a gang...

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of families stay over New Years and we all had a great time. The kids loved the entire basement whether running around, playing video games, or having a movie night. It was definitely their favorite place to hang out. The house was well appointed, very comfortable, and worked well for the mix of families we had. Greg the owner and the resort were very responsive to any questions we had while there.

We're the only 'local' family and will definitely put this on our list of places to return to. Now if we can only come back with a group of couples without any kids...
