Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Soule Haven June 20-27, 2010. There were three families sharing this home. This home has the character of a home built in the 1940's (which it was) but it has been completely updated and added on to make it a wonderful, spacious, modern home. (we loved looking at all of the original photos of the home hanging on the wall...so nostalgic and charming!) One of the most beneficial features of this home is that the deck on top of the boat house is right off the great room. So... no major steps to climb to get between the house and the water. As someone who has rented at Lake Lure many, many times, this is a huge factor. We've stayed in homes where you literally had to pack your cooler early in the morning and take it down to the lake for the day, because it was a major haul to go back and forth. There are two master bedrooms, one on the main floor, and one upstairs. The 6th bedroom is a small den on the main floor with a convertible sofa. This room was used by two 13 year old girls and there was also room to put a small cot, once the sofa bed was pulled out. It was not that private, though, as it had sliding pocket doors. This house also had a landing upstairs that had a futon sofa, where we also were able to sleep one or two children. (this was not in any photos) The basement, which there are also no photos of, is large and very COLD!! It has a wonderful pool table, a TV, and a ping pong table. We put the kids down there in the evening to watch movies, as there is only one other television in the house, in the great room. We absolutely loved staying in this home. The great room and two dining room tables more than accomodated our large group, and the kitchen was spacious and very well equipped. We loved that the house has wi-fi as we were able to stay in touch via computer. We were told that the owners would possibly be updating the den furniture, and we think this would be a great addition. The only sofa was small and it was stuffed with feathers, so there were constantly feathers everywhere. (didn't detract from our good time, though). There is also a need for a few more comfortable chairs. Also, in any rental property, there is a need to obtain a larger icemaker. We made many trips to Ingles (only 5 minutes away) to get ice. Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat! On one of the main channels of the lake, we were able to see our kids ski by, but also just float peacefully in the water right by the house. Fantastic

Reviewer Comments:

The house has plenty of charm and was just as described. Beautiful lakefront location. Kitchen was very well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We are experienced Lake Lure renters and this rental was the smoothest and best experience we have had. Unfortunately the weather was unusually cold and the house has some issues with unequal heat distribution on the main level. This was a minor issue though. We would definately rent this home again.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved Soule Haven. The perfect location, view and size. Everything you could ever need is already there. Ingle's Grocery store is 5 minutes away, so convenient, and there are lots of wonderful places to eat or get a carry-out all around the lake. The Lake house is very clean and has all the amenities you will need. The beds are comfortable and all the linens are already provided. It's very peaceful and serene. Perfect place to de-stress.

The house is lovely and well appointed though the kitchen cabinets were very disorganized. We loved that the boathouse deck was right off the great room. The beach was fabulous for our grandchildren.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect for our family and grandchildren. We even had friends visit for the beginning of the week and a family member from St. Louis. The beach was the icing on the cake. The children, especially the younger ones, loved the ability to enter the water that way and to play in the shallow water. The older kids and younger adults spent most of the time in the kayaks and SUP boards. The pontoon boat was perfect for cruising the lake and some fishing. We highly recommend "Larkins At The Lake", the food was excellent and the menu was large enough to address all tastes. The weather was perfect, cool mornings and evenings and warm days. Hard to return to the hot humid weather of Southport.
