About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Five Oaks Cottage was built in 2005 and is tastefully decorated and equipped with a full kitchen and bath with shower. We supply linens, towels, and hygiene products for our guests and an information booklet listing local activities and attractions to help make each guest's stay both memorable and enjoyable. Guests have full access to the dock and boathouse rooftop deck for swimming, fishing, lounging, and enjoying the spectacular views of the lake, the gorge, and Chimney Rock Park. We also provide use of a canoe and a kayak so you can tour the lake and visit sites of interest such as the cove where portions of Dirty Dancing were filmed. There are also some very nice restaurants that can be reached by water.
The cottage is situated behind the main house and has lake views from most windows and from the attached deck. The boathouse and dock are about 150 feet in front of the cottage. About 15 stone steps lead down to the ground level of the main house. A stone pathway then leads you around the house. Another 15 steps will take you to the rooftop deck atop the boathouse, and another 15 steps will take you down to the dock at water level. Having to negotiate steps down to the water is the norm at Lake Lure because it is a mountain lake and the shoreline is steep. There are very few lodgings on Lake Lure that do not require the traversing of many steps to reach water level. Five Oaks Cottage actually has fewer steps to the water than many. Still, it may not be suitable for older folks or those with disabilities.
The cottage is equipped with wireless internet, a TV with satellite reception, a DVD player, a CD player with auxiliary input for your phone or mp3 player, and a large collection of CDs and DVDs. Five Oaks is the cottage where the author/owner conceived and wrote the popular series of children's books called The Lake Lure Chronicles (Google 'Lake Lure Chronicles' to view). We believe you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Five Oaks and will create many lasting memories of this most beautiful and peaceful place.

About the owner: We fell in love with Lake Lure the first time we saw it in 1984, and returned three weeks later and purchased a small cottage on the lake for weekend and summer vacation use. In preparation for retirement at the lake in 2006, we added a major second story addition to the original small cabin and built Five Oaks Cottage, a guest-house for additional space for family and friends and for a vacation rental when we are not using it. We are delighted to be able to share this beautiful and special place with others and we enjoy meeting the many wonderful folks who find us through VRBO and become our guests at Five Oaks.
