About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath waterfront on Lake Lure

This home is a 3 bedroom/3 bath water front home located in Garner Cove just a stone's throw from Larkins Restaurant on Lake Lure. It is a very quiet and private cove, great for swimming, And it's only 2.5 milesfrom downtown Lake Lure and Chimney Rock! The residence offers a beautifully open floor plan with all the comforts of home. The spacious Master bedroom has a king size bed. The second and third bedrooms have queen beds. There are 2 twin beds in the basement recreation room, suitable for children. Any of the three decks provide a wonderful spot for a morning cup of coffee or a lazy day of sunning. A gas grill is located on the main deck for guests to enjoy a cookout - Ingles grocery only a mile away!! The water, just off the deck of the double slip boathouse, is shallow enough for the children to play, swim, and fish. There are pontoon boat rentals available in the area. A two seat kayak and a long board are also available at the home for guests to enjoy, as well as lots of floats and life jackets. The basement provides hours of entertainment with a ping pong table, tv, and blue-ray player and a selection of movies. This home is Wi-Fi equipped so guests can catch up on emails or even get a little work done while on vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens and towels are provided. The beautiful vaulted wooden ceilings and skylights give the home a very open airy feeling. Our home is located just 5 minutes from all the sight seeing, shopping and fun activities of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. We are also a short and very scenic 35 minute drive to Asheville, NC. Come stay with us, we know you will want to come again!

About Karen Cabaniss

We live in nearby Shelby, NC. We purchased this home in 1999 so that we would have a special place to build family memories. We immediately fell in love with the home and with the area. We especially like the privacy of this particular home, and the small town feel of Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. It's as if time has had no effect on this quaint little area.

Beautiful and quiet waterfront location on Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this wonderful home on Lake Lure. The owner was very friendly and responded quickly to any questions we had. The house is conveniently located to the grocery store and in a quiet cove perfect for swimming and fishing. The house was clean and had plenty of activities including a fire pit and ping-pong. My only recommendation for improvement was the deck over the boathouse could be cleaned as the recent rain left it dirty. Overall we had a great stay at this property and would recommend it to anyone looking for waterfront on Lake Lure

Owner's Response: Thank you, Craig. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home. Thank you for bringing to my attention the need for cleaning on the boathouse deck. The deck has since been cleaned and has made lounging by the lake even more enjoyable. We hope to have you and your family rent with us again! Karen

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed at this cabin for a full week and there was more than enough room for everyone. The location of the cabin bordering the little cove and the lake was perfect for us. The smaller kids could easily stand and swim in a protected cove, while the older kids could swim and use the water toys in the lake. The older kids enjoyed the ping pong table and I loved the variety of kayak, canoe and paddleboard. I would definitely recommend this cabin. What a great week.

Beautiful location, had an amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house lived up to all of our expectations, and then some! The location is absolutely amazing, the owner was very quick to respond to all of our questions and everything was exactly as we hoped it would be. The house was well kept, had everything we needed, and there were plenty of water toys to keep everyone busy on the Lake.

Lake Lure is a beautiful place and the house was easy to get to and exactly as advertised. The boat dock and pontoon boat were fabulous and were where we spent most of our time, in addition to hiking and sight seeing. We enjoyed swimming and fishing off the dock, boating around Lake Lure and dinner at Larkin's on the Lake.

The family room on the ground floor was a particularly nice place to hang out when not outside. The ping pong table, dart board and large flat screen TV were very popular with our family. We had a nice time at the fire pit, which is conveniently located right in front of the house. There was plenty of parking for our 3 cars. The Wi-Fi worked well, and the house is also in cell phone coverage, which is nice to be able to stay in touch with others.

There is an Ingles grocery store/gas station just a couple minutes away which was also very convenient. There are plenty of restaurants in Lake Lure and also nearby Bat Cave, which also hosts Chimney Rock.

If you like to hike, I highly recommend Party Rock, which is only a few minutes down the road and provides the best view of Lake Lure you'll ever get.

Beautiful Lake house, Great Value, Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about this home. The houseboat was filled with fun stuff that all ages could enjoy. The bottom floor was a great addition for the kids to hangout. Our four kids had a blast!!

The homeowner was always helpful and quick to answer any questions. I highly recommend this Lake house.
