About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Ledfords Landing is a picturesque lakefront retreat in a private setting. This 2600 sq foot lakefront home is spread over two floors. Upper and lower decks boast of views across the lake to Chimney Rock. The main level has a large great room with ample seating that surrounds a lovely brick fireplace. The kitchen/dining area is spacious and opens into the great room. The upper level has 4 bedrooms - 3 of which have a sliding glass door that opens onto a common covered balcony facing the lakefront. The master bedroom on the lakefront has a king bed and its own full bath. The other three upstairs bedrooms share a full bath in the hallway. All of the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable. The two lakeside bedrooms have queen beds. The fourth bedroom has two twins. For additional sleeping space there is a 5th bedroom with a queen bed that is located just off the kitchen. There is also a full bath with shower downstairs, which is also accessible from the outside, great for a quick rinse off after swimming. The large covered porch/deck located off the great room provides a great spot to read a book or enjoy the lovely views of the lake and mountains.

If it’s a water experience you are interested in, there are only 20 steps from the house deck to the lakefront over-sized dock with shaded area and ceiling fan. Whether canoeing, kayaking, swimming or just floating aimlessly in the cool emerald water, you’ll be at ease as we are situated in a quiet “no wake” cove. (We provide 2 sea otter kayaks and canoe for your use.) No matter how you spend your day, you’ll want to be on the 'rooftop deck' over the boathouse in the evening. The water changes from cool green to brilliant gold as the sun sinks over the mountain. At Ledfords Landing, you have a beautiful view directly across the lake to the mountains.


We have a 1999 Voyager 21' pontoon boat available at your option to rent with our home. It has a 90 hp 4 stroke engine. The pontoon rental is as follows:

Summer Season:

Weekly $1195 plus sales tax

3 - 5 days rental is $195/day plus tax and $50 check in/check out fee

OFFSEASON rates are with taxes and fees included:

2 night weekend rate $315

3 night weekend rate $495

It is a great way to get see the lake and surrounding area; go for a sunset cruise, go to Bayfront Grille by boat for lunch or dinner.


In 2006, Lake Lure has passed a regulation that makes it unlawful for boats with commercial licenses (i.e.our boat) to tow skiers or tubes, etc behind the boat.**************

There are several (14) acres adjacent to the house that are perfect for playing baseball or Frisbee, picnicking, or star gazing at night. It was on this property that several scenes from the movie Firestarter were filmed.

Please note that our home is family friendly. We welcome you to use some items we've kept for your convenience - portable crib/high chair/booster seat. Also an ample supply of toys, books and videos. The porch has locking gates to help keep little ones safe and let you relax.

We love animals, but for the comfort of all our guests, we do not allow pets.

About Jenny Cox

I grew up in Asheville. My father and mother both from small NC mountain towns. My father (jenny talking) purchased 14 acres at the head of Sunset Cove on Lake Lure in 1963. I grew up coming to Lake Lure and Papa Bob's Cabin (VRBO#34359). In 1988, my family purchased this house. It sits adjacent to the original property. We have countless precious family memories here. We rent our home for 2 reasons: we can't use it all the time and want to share it with other families to create special memories of their own. The rental income allows us to keep the house and property up to date and well maintained. Each year we try to upgrade the house or property is some way to honor Papa Bob and all he has done to allow his family such a wonderful place to call our own.

Jenny Cox purchased this house in 1988

Why Jenny Cox chose Sunset Cove

Our home was purchased in 1988. There are countless precious family memories here. We welcome you to come and enjoy our home and the lake with its beauty and peacefulness and make your own sweet memories.

What makes this house unique

Not many homes on Lake Lure possess the combination of a level lot, ample space outside to play, and proximity to the water. We are 20 steps from deck to dock. We have a westerly view and the nightly sunsets are amazing from the rooftop deck. We have privacy as well as access to lots of room to play as the house sit next to my family's 14 acres. There is a spot by the water for an old fashion bonfire. There is a field for star gazing and for games. Our home is on a no wake cove so you can float or play without worry of boat traffic zooming by. With both properties: Ledford's Landing and Papa Bob's Cabin, we can sleep 16.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family is very large and growing each year. With ten adults and five children under the age of 4, it can be difficult to find adequate space that we can enjoy together. Ledford’s Landing was absolutely perfect for us. The entire house was wonderfully childproofed that allowed us to kick back and watch the kids play instead of constantly running after them. We also enjoyed the use of the pontoon boat. Whenever the kids got too rowdy we would just load them up and go for a cruise. It was a fabulous distraction and relaxing for the adults as well. The swimming areas were also fabulous. The kids loved the shallow beach area where they could splash around. For an adventurous family that planned to find a new and exciting location each year for vacation we have decided to stick with Ledford’s Landing. It was simply too perfect! We look forward to spending time with you again next summer.

Love this Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what we were looking for; clean, private, great views, and right on the lake.

The downstairs is wide open making it possible for several things going on at once: ping pong, foosball, cards, conversation...all in one big room. Candlelight sunset dinners were great on the deck over the lake with plenty of room at the table for everyone. We usually cooked in pairs, and the kitchen was a great size for that; no bumping into one another. The bedroom situation was perfect with 4 upstairs and 1 downstairs with one being a master with a big shower! Two other bathrooms with showers as well. Never had to wait on each other.

We definitely want to come back next year. This is a perfect place to stay.

Wonderful family home!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our family! We had kids ranging from 2-8 yrs old and the foosball table, amazing deck(s), canoe, life jackets of all sizes and little water slide kept everyone busy and happy for the week! The only drawback is that you need to bring your own towels. Some of our family lives in Asheville, so not a problem for us generally. We will definitely go back next time we head to NC!

Best view ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Ledfords Landing several times and it is always a wonderful time. The home is clean and comfortable! Everyone had a blast on the kayaks/canoe. Plenty of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the view. The sunsets are simply spectular!! Can't wait until next time.

4th year at Ledford's Landing

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth fall we've rented Ledford's Landing for our group of five couples. Ledford's Landing never disappoints. This time we rented the pontoon boat and cruised the lake.... so relaxing. L.L. has everything we need.... plenty of room to spread out, an updated kitchen, fireplace, and lots of outdoor living space. We kayaked and canoed, and sat on the deck and enjoyed the lake and mountain view. You will not be disappointed with this property.

Stellar location. Good, old-fashioned lake fun

  • 5 of 5

You won't beat the location on Lake Lure. The set up with docks and boat house is great. All in all, we had a really enjoyable time, with the only problem being that there was too much to do and too little time! Hope to return again.

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Ledford"s Landing, and the house was excellent. We've rented a house on the lake for the last four years for Memorial Day weekend, and I'd rate this one as the best so far. Excellent layout, with easy access to the lake, along with a stunning view!
