Beautiful home inside lovely resort!

  • 5 of 5

We did not want to leave this great house. If you are looking for a lake house, it's hard to do better than this one. It is on a small lake you can swim and paddle in, and Lake Lure is a 2 minute drive away, with access to the whole Rumbling Bald resort included! The owners decorated it beautifully and keep it well stocked with everything you need. The management company was also the best we've worked with- we got a personal tour on the first day and great info in an organized binder. We loved paddling the kayaks out every day- the lake is small and calm so we had our 6-9 year olds in their own boats, which they loved. The resort pool and lazy river and the Resort beach on Lake Lure were also a huge hit. We also played mini golf, cute little course. We visited the Flowering Bridge and hiked to the waterfall at Chimney Rock. The ladies did the resort painting class and the men played golf. Some tips: GPS and cell phones did not always work. Take a photo of the directions page in the binder so you will have it in your phone. The house phone was not working when we were there. Bring bug repellent, cortisone, and long pants if bugs love you- we got a ton of bites the first day before we got wise. There are 2 baby gates at the house, you can gate off the stairs to the dock. Turn the boats upside down each time you leave the dock, rain came up suddenly and it's much harder to pull them up filled with water! Stop at the Ingles grocery store before checking in, it closes at 6 on Saturdays. Plan your restaurant meals in advance- a lot of places aren't open for dinner, aren't open every night, and it's hard to call from the house to get reservations due to the cell signal issue. Wifi at the house is great and there is a smart Bluray player so you can login to Netflix for movie night (just remember to sign out!). Bring your AAA card to get a discount at Chimney Rock. Park in the gravel spots at the road rather than pulling into the driveway if you don't have a backup camera. A huge THANK YOU to the owners for sharing your home with us and being so thoughtful to provide all the elements of a great vacation for us!!!

Reviewer Comments:

My husband, 10-year-old son, and I spent a leisurely summer week at Dancing Waters Lodge. This home is well-appointed with everything you need for the perfect lakeside getaway. I enjoyed a daily kayak trip around serene Bald Mountain Lake. I also walked enjoyed walking around the resort and being so close to the amenities there. The boys swam and used the paddle boat. We all used the Wi-Fi, because we all have our electronic devices, even if we like to feel like we're far out in the wilderness. We saw lots of wildlife. The kitchen had everything we needed. Loved it, very peaceful and cozy.

We were a group of 11 celebrating a family reunion. We were all so pleasantly surprised at how lovely the house is; pictures don't do it justice. Every morning, we started the day with coffee and breakfast on the wonderful screened porch looking out on that gorgeous lake and every night we had big, delicious dinners in that wonderful dining area. Our days were spent swimming off the dock, taking leisurely kayak and canoe rides around the lake, looking at water birds, deer and beavers. The hiking path up the mountain, behind the house, is challenging and well worth it!

On days, when we felt like interacting with other humans, we visited Chimney Rock Mountain, which is a beautiful hiking opportunity and a lovely little town, as well as Ashville, which is just an hour away.

It is such a relaxing and naturally beautiful place and the home is very well kept, charming and fully equipped with everything our family needed to make this vacation one of the most memorable we have ever had!
