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 Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed Lookout Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

The views from anywhere is this home were amazing! I was only looking for a rocker or a swing on a mountainside porch and this home had both. It had everything that we needed, definitely well supplied. Perfect. Our family was on a much needed retreat and we were able to rest, revive and renew. Everyone voiced that the choice of this home was a good one and that they wanted to come back. A week later and we are praying that this home and the others of Lake Lure/Chimney Rock have not been harmed by the wildfires that are raging.

A Wonderful Couples Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

Each year 4 couples get together for some fun golfing, sharing stories and hanging out at a house that can accommodate that many people. This house had it all...plenty of bedrooms and baths and all the privacy we needed as well. Vickie was so good about keeping in touch with us to make sure everything was fine. It had it all and more...well supplied with everything we needed for our 3 day well as clean with plenty of linens.

Great Ladies Week at Lookout Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 women enjoyed a wonderful September stay at Look Out Lodge. The clean and comfortable home is arranged very well for large groups with good sleeping arrangements and large enough bathrooms to be shared. The setting is beautiful and secluded, even though you are just minutes from all the activities of Rumbling Bald Resort. We especially enjoyed morning coffee on the porches, the large dining table where we could all eat together or play cards and the wonderful fire pit. Vickie was extremely helpful in answering all our questions and making sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed a pontoon tour of the lake, the Wine Tour with Joann from Rumbling Bald, hiking, tennis and we all learned how to play pickle ball. Great memories from a great week!

Perfect Layout for Multiple Families with Kids

  • 5 of 5

The home owner thought of everything when they remodeled. The kitchen is well stocked, has 2 dishwashers, and the layout functions well with lots of people working in there at one time. The basement has a stocked game room and family room full of books, games and puzzles along with air hockey, fusball, and more. There are four bedrooms with Queen beds, plus two more bedrooms upstairs in the 2nd floor that could sleep 4 kids in each. There is a bathroom with the kids' rooms that has the toilet separated and the shower separated so that people can be using the sinks while others get their privacy in the shower etc... Plus there are 8 baskets for each kid to store their toiletries during their stay. In addition to the basement family room, there is the main family room on the first floor and a media room up on the 2nd floor that is sound proofed. Kids can be sleeping and your movie won't keep them up when in the media room. The main living space is very spacious and fits lots of people. It's open, beautifully decorated and feels very welcoming with amazing views out of the floor to ceiling Windows that span two floors. The outdoor covered porches are on all three floors and have those great views too. This is by far the most well stocked and well thought out space for multiple families we've stayed in over the years. The resort is great and has a lot of options as far as activities. Loved the beach at the lake too. Highly recommend this house. The owner is on it and is very responsive to any issues that may arise. Grateful for the memories we made while on this great vacation.
