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, very relaxing!

The house was wonderful and exactly as described. We have 2 small children who especially enjoyed the gradual sandy beach! Karen was available to answer questions quickly if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Everything you need to enjoy a stay on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4-night stay here! I can't say enough nice things about the property, from location to amenities! My husband and I traveled with our two teenage girls, and there was plenty of space for everyone as well as plenty to do. We took advantage of the grill, made s'mores by the firepit, and everyone enjoyed the canoe, kayak, and paddleboard. Garner Cove is a great spot on the lake for swimming as it's a large no-wake zone. Being able to walk in from the small beach is a plus. The area is quiet and so peaceful. We had one day of rain, but there is plenty to do inside, including a ping-pong table (and the included wi-fi is a plus with teens, haha) - plus, you're minutes from Chimney Rock Village and the shops and restaurants there. We took two trips into Asheville, which is only about a 40 minute drive away. We took a ghost tour in downtown Asheville and visited Biltmore House, which were fun family activities (and Biltmore is running a special this summer where kids under 16 get in free!). We would definitely come back and stay here again! Karen is super friendly and responsive to messages. We had absolutely no trouble or issues during our stay. Thank you, Karen, for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Very clean

We stayed for three nights in April and had a relaxing stay. The house was fabulous. My kids loved the basement with ping pong and darts. There was a lot of space for the four of us. Thank you

Excellent Lake Lure Family Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Spent our Easter vacation here and the family had a wonderful time. This house is very well kept, the owner was extremely responsive, helpful and made us feel right at home. House doesn't show up on WAZE or Google maps but once on Holmes road it's easy to find. Kids loved it and want to rent it again this summer! Highly recommend this lovely home and wouldn't think twice renting it again!
