About Carolyn Henderson

This house is owned by my mother, Carolyn Henderson, and ever since the passing of my father in 2008, I have been helping her maintain, rent, and enjoy (as much as we can) this wonderful house on Lake Lure. This lake house was absolutely my father's dream.......the view, the neighbors, the tranquility, and most of all the pleasure and excitement he saw in each of his seven grandchildren when they came to the lake for a visit. Priceless!

Carolyn Henderson purchased this house in 1999

What makes this house unique

This property has one of the best views on the lake and is one of the few lakefront properties that has a sandy beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, we are home safe and sound back in the flat land. Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at the Lake. Your home was perfect for our needs and the view was fabulous. I have lots of pictures of the view from the deck at various times of the day. Also the wifi internet connection was a great addition, as we were able to keep up with news at home. Thank you so much for that it will definitely be a selling point for rental.

We all had a wonderful time and would recommend your VRBO to anyone wanting to gather with family.

Lovely Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house on a hot September weekend. The house was lovely; plenty of space to spread out both inside and outside, casual and relaxing, easy cooking and grilling. We spent much of our time in the water. We swam, canoed, ate outside, and even taught our pup to swim. There are lots of stairs down to the water, but when you get there, the small sandy beach, the canoe and floating dock are irresistible.

Magical Lake Lure Home

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent on Lake Lure was simply magical. The home accommodated our adult children, their spouses and 2 grandchildren. There is so much to do on the lake you don’t have to leave for entertainment. The grandchildren 3 and 4 spent most of their time in the water swimming and jumping off the floating dock. In the pictures the living area looks small but it was plenty large enough for our family, we ate together most evenings on the deck overlooking the lake and moutains. This home exceeded our expectations!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home with everything our family needed for a great vacation! It was especially good for the small children because of the easily accessible beach area. You are tucked away in a protective cove wih a fantastic view out to the lake and mountains. Great kayaking area! The Lake Lure area has lots to offer and you are not far from Asheville, Black Mountain and Hendersonville. Everything about the house and property was well represented in the description and I would definitely recommend it for a great vacation get away. We hope to return!

Fun Time for Our Whole Family & Freinds

  • 5 of 5

In early fall of 2015, we brought our family and two friends to Lake Lure for a three day weekend. It was a great time for us all! We used the canoe and the diving platform for a day of swimming. The second day, we hiked Chimney Rock and visited Chimney Rock town. Evenings we all took part in making dishes, cooking on the BBQ and eating as a family on the porch overlooking Lake Lure and its beautiful mountain views. This was a great trip for us all and we enjoyed every bit of it. We are definitely coming back to Lake Lure this year too!

Such a nice place!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners here are soooo helpful. Our family had a house already rented around this area and the house flooded the day before our stay. I wrote Carolyn and asked if she had any availability. In just minutes, she took us right in and had the house ready for us ASAP. It was so nice to have a nice place so quickly. The house is absolutely beautiful! We had 10 people stay and everyone was comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!! Thanks again ladies! :)

Spectacular views, very comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Kids enjoyed taking the kayak in the cove as well as out across the lake to explore the opposite shoreline. They also spent lots of time on the floating dock down at the beach. House has all the amenities, and three decks with spectacular views day and night where we could keep an eye on the kids from the little beach under the house.. all the way across the lake if we needed. 1/2 daytrip to hike up Chimney Rock park was also a blast for the hikers in our group. Peaceful and relaxing.
