About the Property

3 BR/3 Baths, Chalet Style Lake Front Home with Beautiful View

The Red Canoe in Riverbend, Lake Lure, NC will provide you with a quiet get-away on a serene mountain lake and a fun-filled family vacation paradise with loads of outdoor activities. You will find that “The Red Canoe” on Mirror Lake will surpass your expectations.

The house, with its dramatic cathedral ceilings and gorgeous real oak floors is furnished with a touch of country elegance. The entry level includes a wide-open, fully equipped kitchen, dining room with a big country table that comfortable seats 10, and a great room with a sofa and love seat located in front of the stone fireplace. The other end of the great room includes an additional dining area with a beautiful table and chairs seating 6.

From here, you step onto the large deck overlooking the tranquil 40-acre private lake—enjoy the barbecue, and the outdoor patio table and chairs. The entry level also includes two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with 2 twin beds, and a full bath off the hall. The upstairs loft has a beautiful master suite with a king size bed, a shower/bath, and a spectacular view.

On the lower floor, the well equipped kids’ quarters includes a big screen TV, WI-FI, Foosball table, ping ping table and enough table games to entertain all week. There is also a children's-room with 4 twins. A convenient full bath and laundry room are located in the basement.

Out the lower level back door, follow the short set of steps down to the lake to find a ample sunbathing deck, swimming dock, two canoes, plus a paddle boat, a paddle board, and life jackets for responsible use. Additionally, there is a hammock for relaxing in the shade and a corn-hole game for an afternoon of family fun! There is an additional picnic table outside overlooking the lake and fire-pit down by the lake for an evening with the family or friends.

This home is located in the gated community of Riverbend within 15 minutes of Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and shopping. There are two private lakes in the community - Big Mirror Lake and Little Mirror Lake. They both allow for canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats. No motorized boats are allowed, which makes this also a great swimming lake. There is private access to the Broad River, an "Old Swimming Hole", picnic area, gazebo, pavilion, hiking trails, beach area, swimming, fishing, and BBQ grills for your enjoyment. The Nature Walk is equipped with picnic tables and a picturesque waterfall. It is a great area for exploring the natural rock & stone river banks and just enjoying nature!
