Why the Owner Chose Lake Lure, NC, USA:
Its hidden away from the world, but yet close enough to enter back in when you want. Come 'retreat' into the natural world. Get away from it all. You can only hear the sound of birds in the morning. Whipporwill, Hawk, Crow , never mind all the other songbirds…Bald Eagle spotted over the lake, White and Blue heron,Wild Turkeys in the yard. Bobcat was chasing one , one morning. Occasional Black Bear comes down from the mountain. Deer frequently in the yard every morning. Hummingbirds, butterflies, fireflies……it goes on….just magnificent to watch the stars at night and the moon and sun in the sky….:) I have mountain views and lake view in the winter. Open land behind the fire pit with hiking trails that lead to unbelievable views from the top of the rock face. Chimney Rock State Park is my neighbor.
