Our home is a 3 bedroom/3 bath water front home located in Garner Cove just a stone's throw from Larkin's Restaurant on Lake Lure. It is a quiet and private cove, great for swimming, and it's only 3 miles from 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. Gas and charcoal grills are located on the main deck for guests to enjoy a cookout - Ingles grocery is 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 boat rentals available in the area. A two seat kayak, a single kayak and a long board are 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.

Cozy and comfortable lakefront vacation spot!
Our family loved this quiet, comfortable lake house at beautiful Lake Lure. Convenient location close to Ingles and Larkins and also close to Chimney Rock. Home has spacious rooms, 2 Living Rooms with TVs, kitchen open to family room, decks with water views and an awesome outdoor grill for cooking. We used the fire pit every evening even though it was August. A perfect stay. Thank you!
I am so happy you all had a wonderful stay! We appreciate your business and the great care you took of our home. Please plan to return again soon. We would love to have you back!
What's not to love about lake lure? Another great year on the lake and we thoroughly enjoyed the location. Can NOT beat proximity to Ingels and to Larkins (if so inclined). Boat house to house is very convenient. Awesome fire pit over looking the lake. Great swing overlooking lake where my son spent hours reading. Paddle board and kayak great to have on hand. Karen quick to respond and gives detailed instruction to get there, how to use everything and answers all your questions immediately. Beds comfortable! WE had a great stay. Thanks!
Great view and cozy house!
Overall, a great experience at Lake Lure. I went the week after Christmas - the area wasn’t crowded. The house was in a quiet neighborhood on the water. It looked like it would be a super vacation house for a large family in the summer months- paddle board/kayaks included! The lake’s water level was down (prob do this yearly), and Karen (the owner) told me about that ahead of time. It was too cold to be out on the water anyway. I didn’t see any boats out the whole week I was there. So..., the house has a great fireplace, and logs for burning can be purchased at Ingles grocery, which is prob about a mile away. My family spent the week inside reading, playing musical instruments, walking the neighborhood, shopping Chimney Rock (3 mins away), and visiting Asheville (about 40 mins away). It’s a great lake house with a great view in a great location.
I'm so happy you and your family had a relaxing time at our home in Lake Lure. It is a fun place to spend a summer vacation.
Thanks for being such wonderful guests! I hope you all will come again soon!
Lovely location and scenery
Very nice property with great view. House fits 6 easily. Ping pong was a hit! Kitchen small but manageable.
Thanks for staying with us! We appreciate the care you took with our home. Please come again!
Great house in a great location
We had an amazing time. The house was even nicer than described, the boat house and decks were excellently maintained and the home is positioned on a great part of the lake. I fished every morning and evening and caught several fish, including a perch that was nearly State record sized. This part of the lake is very peaceful and our experience was excellent. Karen, the owner, was very helpful and her communication was great. Will book again!
We look forward to having you all back! I'm so happy you had a good time. It is a wonderful, peaceful place to spend some quality family time. And the location makes for great fishing, but I'm sure it takes a skillful fisherman too :) Thanks for taking such great care of our home.
The Ladies of Garner Cove
The owner once again had the house ready and clean. Being our 3rd year, it is funny how the little things we forget are there when we return. We prepare all our meals there and the kitchen is well stocked and we just bring food. Each year she has done another upgrade. The new railings and checked wire on the boat house deck is a real nice touch. We enjoyed the water toys so much. Our trip was a 3 women annual getaway and our third year here. It was all as it should be except for a little more rain than we would have liked. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Thanks again for spending your ladies get-a-way with us! And thanks for your excellent care of our place. We appreciate your business and look forward to having you back! I always remember your first request to book - "ladies looking for a place to sip wine and float" Love it!!
