Reviewer Comments:

The upstairs bedroom has a king bed but no in suite bathroom. The downstairs bedroom is small but does have the in suite bathroom. Strange... A small television in the downstairs bedroom would have been nice to watch morning and evening news... The location was great and the home was nice. Overall it is a very nice vacation rental. The only major drawback is no internet service. I would definitely stay here again (IF wifi internet service is installed).

We visited for a long weekend and had a great time, even though we did have rain on and off during our stay. We enjoyed the paddle boat and kayaks. My wife enjoyed a massage at the spa. We also went on a guided horseback trail tour that we enjoyed a lot. Definitely pick up some of the marshmallow sticks at Ingles for s'mores at the fire pit.

We had a great time on Bald Mountain Lake. The house was spacious, clean and as described. The kayaks were fun and the access to the resort and Lake Lure was a nice touch. It was great to unplug and enjoy nature. Chimney Rock is close and we enjoyed a day hiking at the park.

Great lake front vacation home in Lake Lure area

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this nice lake house in late Summer and we had a wonderful stay. The house is pretty easy to get to from the highway and, unlike areas with higher elevation, there are not tricky winding roads you have to traverse to get there. The house came as advertised and there were no surprises. We had two adults and four boys ages 11-13. The house is well equipped and the management company was a pleasure to work with. They provide directions, recommended items to bring and recommended activities during our stay. Ingles grocery store is within 15 minutes of the house and there are a handful of local restaurants to choose from. The house is located on Bald Mountain Lake and is 5 minutes from Rumbling Bald Resort and the larger Lake Lure. The rental comes with passes to Rumbling Bald Resort providing access to many other activities and dining options on site.

Bald Mountain Lake is nice for kids because they do not allow motorized boats. We used the kayaks and paddle boat that came with the house and enjoyed the fire pit down by the lake.

Lots of things to do and places to see within 45 minutes to 1 hour from the house including Asheville, Hendersonville, Black Mountain, etc. Sightseeing, hiking, white water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, water sports (pontoon boat, ski, tubing, knee/wake board), shopping, tour Biltmore, breweries in Asheville, etc. Great area for family vacation with lots of things to see and do if you, especially if you enjoy the outdoors!

Reviewer Comments:

We recently rented this nice lake house for a summer vacation with four boys ages 11-13. The house is on a very private, quiet and small lake (not Lake Lure) that does not allow motorized boats which was great because we could let the boys roam freely. They used the kayaks, paddle boat and fished (although they did not catch anything but we did confirm there are fish). We found the house to be as-advertised, clean and ready for our check-in. There were no surprises. The management company provided a good list of recommended items to bring so we were prepared accordingly. We did not incur any problems while there although a few light bulbs were out. The house rental came with passes to Rumbling Bald Resort, which is within a few minutes drive and is located on Lake Lure. There are many activities at Rumbling Bald and Lake Lure including, but not limited to, pool, tennis, golf, fitness center, basketball, pontoon boat rental (Lake Lure Adventure Company) and tubing. We did not dine at any of the local restaurants, rather we ate most meals at the house. Ingles grocery store is a short drive, 10-15 minutes away. We did day trips to Hendersonville, Asheville and went zip lining at The Gorge which is located in Saluda. All of these activities were within 45 minutes to an hour away from the house. A few small recommendations would be to consider swapping (if there is room) the downstairs king for the queen that is currently in the master on the main floor. Consider adding some shelve/storage somewhere to have some pantry space. The kitchen could use a pitcher for making tea/lemonade.
