Only one summer week left! Located on a wide and quiet cove and is the prime location on Lake Lure to take in panoramic views of the mountains, Chimney Rock, Hickory Nut Gorge, and especially for viewing beautiful sunsets across the lake. All of this plus the FREE USE OF OUR 22 FOOT PONTOON BOAT AND 4 KAYAKS! Renting a similar pontoon boat on the lake costs $250+ for 1/2 day or $500+ for a full day and kayaks rent on the lake for $50+/day - access $500+/day of amenities by renting our home!
The dock area includes a boat house with an extra large dock area for playing and fishing. It also includes a large raised deck 15 ft off the water. It is a fantastic place to relax down by the lake, watch family and friends swim and play in the water as well as enjoy sunset. The deck and boathouse also provide shade down at the lake throughout the day to maximize comfort for everyone who is spending the day down 'on the water'. Free high speed wifi(50MBs)and free local and long distance calling(US only) is also included with the rental.
For the 2018 season, we have new decking on the dock as well as new steps that go down into the water to make it easier to utilize the kayaks.
The house comes furnished with 2 flat screen TV's - the new 4K Ultra HD TV is amazing. There is also 50 Mbs internet access via Wifi. We also continue to enhance our landscaping and hillside to improve the view from our home and expand the forest on our hillside for additional privacy at our house as well as down at the dock.
Our house is in widest part of Sunset Cove which is a no-wake cove that allows for lots of privacy as well as protected swimming, floating as well as quiet fishing from the dock. There are also great views across the expanse of the main part of the lake from the house and the dock. The best of everything!
Road access to our house is ideal via a private road that is less than half mile off of Highway 74 allowing you to avoid the many twists and turns required to reach some areas of Lake Lure - and only 5 minutes from the full scale Ingles grocery store.
The structure of our home is designed to make the most of this ideal location. It has the feel of a mountain home with its peaked roof and cedar exterior. It is surrounded by century old trees proving shade, privacy, and the feeling of being in a mountain retreat. Situated at the top of the hill overlooking the lake allows for easy access when unloading or loading the car as well as making the most of the amazing views.
You enter the main room to vaulted ceilings of rich wood that provide an open and airy feeling. There is a beautiful fieldstone fireplace which provides a cozy atmosphere in the summer and especially in the fall/winter...further adding to the mountain retreat atmosphere.
The center piece of the home is the two plus stories of windows that provide expansive views of the lake and the mountains. The open floorplan allows guests to sit and talk, work in the kitchen and eat dinner - all while taking in the spectacular views.
The main floor has a private bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom. The upstairs has a private bedroom with a queen bed and a private half bath. The bedroom connects to a loft which overlooks the main room and has full view of the floor to ceiling windows and fireplace. Sky lights also add to a feeling that you are living in the trees. The loft is semi-private and has a trundle bed (two twin beds).
The lower floor is a huge master suite which includes a sitting area and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that also look out over the lake - the room is over 400 square feet! It has a king bed and one trundle bed (two twin beds) as well as a sitting area for enjoying the morning sunlight or lounging in the afternoon. The lower bedroom also has a full bath. If you choose for this to be a 'kids room,' it has a TV and plenty of room for games and etc. allowing parents to quietly enjoy the view upstairs (or watch something other than cartoons on TV). The downstairs opens out onto a covered deck with adirondack chairs for lounging in the shade. If you choose to use this room as an adult room, it is a great place to cool down and relax in private.
Not only does the inside of the house make the most of the location, so does the outside. There are two large decks extending out to the lake. The upper deck extends off the main level and is perfect for barbecuing (there is a gas grill) and enjoying dinner outside. The lower deck extends off the master suite/kids room and is a perfect place to enjoy some shade and quietly read a book in the afternoon. Both provide an amazing view of the lake and the mountains.
In addition to the views from the house, you can take in the view while sitting on the dock or go for a swim in the protected no-wake cove. Sunset from the dock is something not to be missed! When you desire even more adventure, take out the pontoon boat or the kayaks which are included with the rental of the house!
As the location and home provide a feeling of immediately being on vacation, we want our service to as well. Therefore, we have worked to provide every convenience necessary. Your first experience of this will be when our caretaker, Debbie, greets you at the door to give you a tour of the house and demonstrate how to use the boat.
You will then find a full kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and plenty of dishes and utensils for cooking and eating. For entertainment, there are two flat screen TVs, two DVD/VCR players and plenty of games for adults and kids. In addition, there is a washer and dryer in a large laundry room to help keep packing to a minimum.
When you are ready to head outside, you will find numerous chairs for lounging and tables for outdoor dining. If you are interested in the local area, we share with guests a list of places that we like to go that we have put together over 10+ years. Every year there is more to do and see around Lake Lure!
Finally, when you have enjoyed your day to the utmost, you will find fully made beds with down comforters ready for you to fall into and enjoy a peaceful nights sleep listening to the sounds of the lake and the forest.
