The location is good for getting to restaurants but the driveway is tricky to maneuver. The house is old and dated and the beds were very uncomfortable for sleeping but the house is situated at the waters edge and the views from the house and large deck are priceless.
Thank you for your review of the property and the comments.
The drive way was resurfaced this year and as you know there is adequate room to park 3 cars at the end of the drive way.
We will install new beds in place of the existing ones within the next few weeks.
Rustic cottage with amazing views of the lake and the mountains. Loved having the huge deck level with the living room to eat out over the water. Many other houses had looooong multiple level stairs to get to their deck. Would I stay there again, absolutely
July 29 till August 2 2017
We found this stay to be beautiful and enjoyable for the lot of us. We spent most of our time on the deck as we had gorgeous weather. The home was clean and easy to find, GPS took me right to it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet place to relax.
I would rent again if the opportunity arose.
Very Nice Cottage /Great Value for the Price
This was our second stay at this nice cottage on Lake Lure and we would surely rent again. The deck is large and furnished and provides a spectacular view of the lake. The spacious living room provides space for interior activities. The kitchen is small but adequate. My only suggestion repeats what another reviewer said - the bedrooms are small and have full sized beds. It would be nice to have Queen beds since it is difficult for 2 adults to sleep in the smaller ones. However, there is a queen sized sofa bed. There is easy access to the cottage and down to the lake. Nancy provided all the information we needed for a wonderful stay.
Wonderful lake house!
This was a charming lake house with a great deck right off the living room. That was the main reason I chose this house. Did not have to worry about going down steep stairs to get to the deck. We ate all our meals on the deck and enjoyed having a cup of coffee early in the morning enjoying the lake view. The kitchen & 2 bedrooms are small, but when you are on vacation you only are in those rooms for a short time. The living room was spacious with plenty of comfortable seating. I feel that the huge picture window in the living room could have been cleaned more, but that still did not deter from the great views. It is an older home but very comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay, the property has amazing views , very quaint, and close to everything. The only reason it doesn't get five stars, is the sleeping arrangements are not the best. The owner of the property should really invest in at least one queen bed, it makes it very difficult with two double beds. The other reason, is linens and towels are not included, there is an additional fee if you want them to provide. With that being said, the location and views of the property far outweigh any negatives. We would stay there again!! We will definitely miss the view while having coffee!!
Thank you for your review. We will definitely consider getting a Queen size bed or sofa bed.
The reason we exclude linen from the rent is to keep the rent low for guests who want to bring linen.
