About Vickie Guthmann

I could write a wonderful Love Story about Lake Lure that started when I was a teenager, and attended Camp Lurecrest (a Christian Camp at the opposite end of the Lake)....Think Dirty Dancing Camp..but take out the Dirty! LoL My husband, Rich became a Lake Lure Fan after we were married. Our family has spent many summers on Lake Lure creating a life time of wonderful memories, trail hiking, kum-bah-yah campfires, and more mosquito bites than I could count.

Vickie Guthmann purchased this House in 2005

Why Vickie Guthmann chose Lake Lure

For years, we dreamed about a vacation home in the area. In 2005, all of our ideas came together: We found a View Extraordinaire, the sound of a nearby waterfall, could not be a cliff hanger (too high), not right on the big lake, must have flat land somewhere (for 8 Grandgirls to explore) and have lots of fun things to do. We finally bought a VIEW with an interesting little red cabin on the property in a Resort community. My husband is a General Contractor/Builder/& Certified Remodeler in Charlotte for 25+ yrs. Did I mention that the little red house was a Hexagon? Oh Yeah! The day we found the house, Rich said, 'I feel certain that I can fix this house, but I could never create a view like this.' We spent few years enjoying and deciding just what and how we would remodel the house, fondly referred to as 'our Rubik Cube.' Each year we welcomed another Grandchild. After 8 Grandgirls...our plans enlarged. In 2012, we began the daunting task of doing a major Addition/Renovation of the entire home.

What makes this House unique

The Whole House Renovation took almost 12 months. We are honored that the NARI (National Association of Remodeling Industry) awarded our Home Project, the COTY Award for Best Whole House Renovation in 2013! And then just recently in April 2014, the Home Builders Association awarded our home, a 1st place Gold Award for Best Whole House Renovation again. Yoohoo! We so enjoy our home away, and love sharing it with our friends and family. It is True: A house is made of Sticks and Bricks....but a home is made from love! We think you will sense that too.

                                                                      David D.

                                                                      Amazing house

                                                                      Carl S.

                                                                      This was the perfect house for our family. There was plenty of room for all 12 of us, we could fit around the dining room table, and the game room, porches, and outdoor firepit were a huge hit. If you're staying anywhere near the Lake Lure area this is a wonderful choice.

                                                                      Perfect family Christmas

                                                                      Karen M.

                                                                      Look out Lodge was the perfect destination for our family Christmas. The main floor was a great spot for gathering while we cooked, ate and enjoyed a roaring fire by the Christmas tree. The kids loved the media room upstairs and everyone enjoyed pool, air hockey, foosball and tons of games in the den. The fire pit was also a highlight of the trip. Overall the house is very well equipped, including sharp knives in the kitchen (never happens in a rental) plus two ovens and two dishwashers that made meal time for 13 so much easier!

                                                                      The location is gorgeous with beautiful mountains filling your view at every turn. It is also conveniently located in Rumbling Bald Resort with restaurants less than a mile away plus walking and hiking trails for every adventure level all within a 5 minute drive. If you want to venture out Chimney Rock is a great destination for hikes and shopping too.

                                                                      And finally the owners were great to work with. Vickie made sure every detail was taken care of and was very responsive for any questions and needs we had.

                                                                      Thanks for a perfect Christmas weekend!

                                                                      My extended family and I rented Vickie's place for a little reunion this past weekend. I can happily say the consensus was the place was great. It definitely accommodated our large group comfortably. The house was well stocked with dishes, towels, some basic kitchen supplies, games, movies, etc. I loved how everything was labeled so we could find everything easily. It was about a 30 min drive to Chimney Rock, Flowering Bridge, etc but only a 3 min drive to the lake and golf and other amenities within Rumbling Bald. Our group loved the use of the paddleboards and other beach equipment and the kids LOVED making s'mores outside by the firepit. The house was clean, very comfortable and very well equipped (we were happy to see pack n plays - multiple- high chairs, etc for the littles!). Vickie was easy to work with and very communicative. I think the only downfall was the phone reception (very spotty all over the mountain) and at times, the wifi went in and out (which may have been a result of so many devices we had using it!). I would definitely return if I had a big group. The views were amazing and we definitely had a reunion to remember.
