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. 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.

We love Lake Lure and this home provides all the space we need and all the toys for the children to enjoy. The downstairs is perfect for the children. The new kitchen appliances are a nice addition. Clean, quiet and close to everything. The view is awesome and the cove is a quiet place for children to play. Thanks Karen....another great stay.
It was such a pleasure to have you all back! It's wonderful guests like you that make having our home on the rental market a positive experience. Thanks for the great care you all always take with our home. Please do come again!!
Three ladies from Australia on a trip of a lifetime were very lucky to stay in this lovely spot.
We stayed in this three level house in Lake Lure for two weeks during the World Equestrian Games in September, 2018. The house was large, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Missy was the perfect hostess, so friendly and thoughtful and we feel we have made a forever friend. Although there are neighbors, the trees and other vegetation and the steepness of the terrain make the property seem very private. The grocery store is a short drive away and there are plenty of lovely places to go out for a meal nearby. We had one day of rain where we had to stay inside, so we passed the time playing ping pong downstairs, cooking up some treats in the well stocked kitchen and taking in the amazing views of the lake. Thank you, Missy for making our holiday one to remember.
It was definitely my good fortune to have you all stay at our place in Lake Lure for the World Equestrian Games. I was truly honored to have such special guests, and enjoyed spending a little time with you all. I only wish I could have gotten there one more time to see you all before you left. I do hope we can stay in touch, and hopefully someday I will visit you in Australia! Many thanks for the nice gifts and the wonderful care of our home!
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!
I'm so happy you all had a great vacation. It was wonderful to have you and your family! Thanks for the excellent care of our home. Please do plan to come again.
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!
