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.

Fantastic location right on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this Lake Lure home! The multilevel decks were perfect for relaxing, dining, and enjoying the gorgeous views! The beach area was so nice and convenient. We spent most of our time floating in the water! The canoe and kayaks were great for exploring the lake. There was also some other floats that were nice to have for relaxing. We fell in love with Lake Lure and this home was a great way to enjoy it all!

Amazing Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house in mid-August. The location is great: it is tucked back into a cove and located on a small dead-end road. Although there were several houses around us, we hardly saw any other neighbors the entire time we were there. It was so quiet and peaceful, especially at night. Parking is limited, but it wasn't an issue for us. It was the perfect place to stay with our dog. She was able to play on the sandy beach every day and even enjoyed canoing and kayaking with us too. The house has two bedrooms on the top floor and two bedrooms on the lowest floor. It was perfect for my husband and me to have space away from my parents. The only downside of the house is the kitchen: it is very small but it is functional, and we were able to cook all of our meals there. If you are considering this house BOOK IT!!! We are looking forward to returning next year and staying at this same location.

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.
