About Beth Butler

We live in a big city and were looking for a place to get away and enjoy God's beauty - a place also for our family to all be together and enjoy holidays and vacations.

Why Beth Butler chose Lake Lure

There is not a more beautiful place to be!

What makes this house unique

Whether you curl up next to a roaring fire to read a book, take a break in the jacuzzi, play a game of pool, take a walk in the woods, swim in near-by pool, gather for morning coffee or afternoon tea or drink on the front porch or one of the several decks - there is no way to escape the beautiful North Carolina mountains and amazing skies...morning sunrise, afternoon sunset or the millions of stars in the night sky!

The Quintessential Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This the place to go if you want to immerse yourself in natural beauty and solitude, but have the convenience of great dining, excursions and adventures and more natural beauty. The home has all of the amenities you could possibly want and more. The location of the house is amazing as it is perched on the very top of a beautiful, gated community set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The home has an open floor plan, comfortable furniture and fully equipped everything. The bedrooms have an abundance of room and the beds are extremely comfortable. This home gives a family the ability to vacation together, but still have the space and ability to separate to ensure perpetual comfort and harmony.

Once you get passed all of the amenities in the home, you realize you are literally sitting on the peak of a mountain surrounded by other mountains that overlook Lake Lure. Literally every window of the house provides a beautiful landscape. Time seemed to stand still sitting on the three (3) different balconies. We enjoyed morning coffee on the back balcony every morning and it was amazing. We even had a day of rain during our stay and that provided us with completely different, yet equally gorgeous views. The night time views and the endless number of stars provided even more wonderful scenery.

In addition to the home being amazing, Lake Lure was wonderful and within minutes of the house. The local markets were conveniently located and stocked with wonderful, natural and local products. There are numerous restaurants within a short drive. In fact, the neighboring towns were great. Each had a unique history and nice shops and restaurants. Lake Lure provides a ton of activities, including going swimming. Plus, the trails in Western North Carolina are amazing and abundant. You could almost stop on any of the back roads and find a mountain to hike. There were a ton of waterfalls and just awe inspiring beauty at every turn.

Obviously, we were fans in every capacity. The property manager was extremely responsive and very help. This home was the perfect way to celebrate ten (10) years of marriage to most amazing woman in the world. It was wonderful coming home to this house to relax in solitude and surrounded by amazing views after a day of hiking, shopping or chilling on the lake.

A wonderful home in a magical location

  • 5 of 5

This is a one of kind property. We (ten of us) vacationed there with our family: two sons, a daughter-in-law, triplet grandsons and my son's in-laws. The view from the house and the decks is nothing short of spectacular. The house is spacious and the bedrooms are comfortable. We ate in most nights and the kitchen has everything you'll need. Only minor short-coming is the microwave oven which is "tiny".

Enjoyed going to th.e beach at Lake Lure and taking my grandsons to the Kids Sense museum. Ate out at Larkins at the Lake. Explored Chimney Rock village - lots of shops. Ingles grocery has just about anything you'll need if you want to eat-in.

Truly a memorable vacation in Western NC!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house. Any issues were immediately resolved by the property manager. It is so peaceful and quiet up there on top of the mountain.

Perfect for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 16 women for a reunion and this house fit all of our needs. The view was outstanding, the rooms were comfortable, and the kitchen worked out great for cooking for so many. Plenty to do in Lake Lure area if you want to get off of the mountain. A big thing for us was that our questions were answered quickly and when the dishwasher had a problem, it was attended to in time. This is a house we would consider for a future gathering. Thanks for giving us such a beautiful place to gather.

Wonderful Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply magnificent. Wonderful views from the top of the mountain to the West and Lake Lure. Furnishings were very good, with more kitchen accessories, spices, laundry bags, etc. than we expected. We filled the house up with relatives as we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. We found there was lots to do in the Lake Lure area, but suggest planning ahead a little bit better than we did as access to some of them was limited due to their being booked already. We had grandkids from 7 to 17 and they really enjoyed the pool and foosball on the lower level. Having their own tv also was a plus. We ate in every night except for the Anniversary Dinner and found the kitchen to be easy to use and with lots of pots, pans, etc. All in all, we did not want to leave when our week was up. Highly recommend this place.
