Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I stayed at The Shelton Way this past weekend and enjoyed every second of it. The pictures does not do the home justice. It was absolutely amazing, very peaceful and quiet neighborhood, and the home had everything you would need to make any vacation worry free. We will definitely be going back.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spacious home tucked away in the hills near Lake Lure, NC. The quiet at this family getaway is deafening. Surrounded by porches on 3 sides you find great places to enjoy morning coffee, the deer, hummingbirds and wildlife that surround you.

Valted ceiling family room, well equipped kitchen, and spacious bedrooms provide space for family meals, games, and personal quite time.

Nice but far from Lake Lure

  • 3 of 5

Home was very comfortable and clean. The house feels relatively new and sits on a private lot. I agree with the previous review's issues. Also the home is at least 25 minutes from the property managers building (Carolina Properties) and 30 minutes from Lake Lure Beach. Some of the route is very curvy and can be difficult to follow at night.

Comfortable, but with some issues

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice home, but with a few issues that potential guests should be aware of.

1) Little to no toilet paper is provided - you are asked to bring your own, so be prepared.

2) Garbage bags and paper towels are not provided. Again, you must bring your own.

3) Well pumps and hot water heaters are turned off when you arrive, so especially if you are renting for a horse show, be prepared for a 30 minute wait upon arrival for the water to heat up to take a shower.

4) There is no garbage pick up in the neighborhood, so you are asked to haul your own garbage to the dump.

5) Property management indicated that the home is 15 minutes to Tryon International Equestrian Center. It is closer to 25-30 minutes.

Other than these issues, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well stocked with utensils.
