Guestbook comments from the manager

Some friends & I headed to this house for NYE to get away from the city. It was really nice. It had a fully equipped kitchen (pots, pans, silverware, etc), cable, plenty of beds & it was very clean. The view was great (the lake was very low due to it being winter but I'm sure in the summer it's even more amazing). There is a screened in porch, a fireplace and plenty of things to do. The house looks just like the pictures online as well. They had plenty of linens/towels as well. The only downside to this house really is that the driveway is very small and very steep - most other driveways are also this way in that area. Also, the upstairs shower was not great, but the others were fine.

A great space for all ages

  • 4 of 5

This property worked well for our family gathering of all ages - a baby, teenagers, parents and grand parents. We enjoyed the play spaces indoors (pool table and ping pong top) and outdoors (badminton) small play space in the yard, and walking in the area. The arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms worked well for us.

GREAT location!

  • 3 of 5

This house is located in a great location on Lake Lure. We loved our time at Lake Lure. House was clean, location was good. The kitchen had limited supplies and very little counter space. The furniture down on the dock--was not in good comfortable places to sit. I would recommend bringing your own chairs/loungers to hang out on the dock and bring floats..that type of stuff is not provided and needed. AND, no shade at the dock area--bringing umbrellas would be good if you'd like relief from the sun.

We had two families with kids and Grandma. It was enough space!

I do recommend the place, just thought it helpful to know what you need when packing!

Don't hesitate; This place is wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Witts Inn with a group of close friends (and all our kids). This place was perfect for our group. Here's our take.

The Lake:

Gorgeous! With the small children, we were happy to find that though it was without a beach the initial few feet were relatively shallow. Worked well to monitor the kids in floats. The two ducks that visited us daily and enjoyed the bread the kids fed them were a bonus!

We also rented a boat and enjoyed two great days out on the water. Rumbling Bald is a great place to enjoy the beach (and a park for kids), ice cream, and the view. Go. Fishing was also fun. We even caught a few bass.

The House:

The layout is great! We used every room and all parties were comfortable. With little ones, it was so great to have the washer and dryer as well as a screened in porch with a door that locked. We brought 4 baby gates, but with 3 kids under 2 we really didn't need them. Awesome!

We cooked in a lot. Having a gas and charcoal grill was nice. The kitchen had many everyday items down to a food processor and blender. I will say, the pans were tough. They stick, so bring spray or your own.

The house is tucked away in a small cove on the lake making it quite peaceful. The lawn out front by the lake is nice too. We brought a few kiddy pools and let the kids play. We also enjoyed some volleyball with the net that was up.

We were worried about shade by the lake, but between the boathouse and the wooden deck across from it there was always a place to put a chair. Even though we brought camp chairs, they really were not needed. There's a half dozen down there (plus a table) already.

The driveway is quite sloped, so be aware. You can fit 3 cars by the house, but anymore need to go up top.
