Wonderful lake house!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Nice Cottage /Great Value for the Price

  • 5 of 5

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.

Incredible Views

  • 4 of 5

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!!

Owner's Response: 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. Claude

A bit disappointed

  • 2 of 5

First let me state that the inside of this unit was quite quaint and the setting was very nice. A great view from the deck outside and via the windows in the den.

What was quite disappointing was the following:

1. The outside has a tremendous amount of rotten wood everywhere. Really distracts from the overall perspective of the place.

2. We used two cans of spider killer, as webs and a ton of spiders were very prevalent around the front and back doors, as well as all over the deck railings.

3. Toilet seat was completely off the main toilet in the house and we had advised the management company the day we arrived. Nothing was done about it.

4. It shows a sandy beach area.....well, we had to trim vines to walk down the stone steps to get to it. Poor upkeep from a maintenance perspective.

5. We rented a boat one day, and there is not a place to tie up to, as railings have been put up where the tie down cleats are. Why was that done?

6. There were no instructions on where the canoe was. Had to call to find out the key to storage was on mantle. These little things should be laid out accordingly.

I would not recommend this unit until the rotten wood is fixed, and the exterior is cleaned up. Having a pest control procedure in place would make all the difference. Could be an awesome place. Needs some TLC. Noticed that no pictures from the water were shown, thus hiding the exterior appearance. Note to self.

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and found it to be relaxing. The aesthetics needs some attention on the exterior of the unit. Thanks.

Owner's Response: The person who reviewed this has totally exaggerated the minor maintenance issues that were required for this property. Outside does not have rotten wood. Any decaying wood was replaced all over the house and the whole exterior of the house was painted early last year. Small spider webs may have been present out-doors or even on the deck. These are to be expected in a cottage on the water surrounded by a lot of trees. A cleaning service cleans the property after each rental and they are supposed to take care of any spider webs. However, even if they clean all the spider webs one day the next day , there will be another one. About the toilet seat ; you have totally exaggerated about the toilet seat, it is true that the screws were loose and it was slightly wobbly. It was never off the main toilet. After this guest left, the owners went and and used the toilet without any problem. However, we immediately called the plumber to fix the problem. About the steps to the sandy beach. There may have been small twigs of vine encroached on the steps to the sandy beach. This is greater than one acre property, and the staff that does the out-door up-keep may have over-looked it. The tie down cleates for the boat may have come off from the deck, we will re-install them. Nancy, who takes care of the property, had tried to call you , to indicate that the Canoe was in the Boat House and the key to the Boat House was on the mantle.. How ever she could not reach you. In Summary, there is absolutely no rotten wood, intensive Pest Control would not eliminate spider webs,. Photograph of the exterior of the house from water was posted many months ago. I am sorry that this guest expected a vacation in a 5 star hotel with immaculate ground maintenance , even though he paid only a fraction of the cost of a 5 star hotel.He should note that in Lake Lure a tiny room with one bed and no view will cost him $120 per night. The 2 stars he gave the property was totally unjustified. Owner

Phenomenal views with rustic charm!!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this property. The view is the best on lake. Easy access to water/dock as well as unloading vehicle. We grilled out every night on the deck. Fireflies and shooting stars always add a nice touch to the ambiance in the evenings.
