Why Sharon Ryan chose Lake Lure
After vacationing in rental homes for years in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we decided to buy our own cabin in what we feel is the most beautiful part of North Carolina - Lake Lure! We love the close-up view of one of the greatest natural attractions in NC - Chimney Rock. We never realized how many hours we would spend sitting on each of our three decks viewing not only Chimney Rock, but deer, turkeys, skunk, hummingbirds, and yes, even an occasional bear! We have only a five minute walk to what hikers and mountain climbers consider one of the most beautiful forests in the country! We spend hours boating and swimming on Lake Lure, tubing down the river, shopping in Chimney Rock, Black Mountain, Hendersonville, and Asheville, and of course hiking in Dupont Forest, Cataloochee, & Old Fort. With the Blue Ridge Prky being only 45 minutes away, we often take day trips and hike up around Pisgah. We go horseback riding and are looking forward to trying out the new zip lining at Canopy Ridge Farms, which is only 15 minutes from the cabin. We spend hours exploring the rivers and looking for favorite fishing spots
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the fact that we can stay in the cabin for a week with extended family and friends, with each 'group' being able to claim their own floor for privacy, but then there is enough room on each floor to congregate for food and fellowship. We usually split our meals between cookouts on the deck and eating at one of the many awesome restaurants only five to twenty minutes from our home.

Beautiful, quaint, spotless and comfortable!
Despite the fact that it rained almost all weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin was tastefully decorated and extremely clean and welcoming. I loved how the three bedrooms are all on different levels with adjacent baths. The view of Chimney Rock was lovely. Thanks for a great mountain vacation!
Chimney Lure Retreat was everything it was advertised to be. The directions were easy to follow and the cabin upon arrival was spotless. There was enough room for my husband and I and our four oldest grandchildren (ages 7-16) without any of us feeling like we were always on top of each other. There was enough space that one could "disappear" for some quiet time if needed. The cabin was close to Chimney Rock and Ashville and we even went hiking on the trail 1/2 mile from the cabin. We will be booking with them again.
Thanks so much for writing such a wonderful review of Chimney Lure Retreat! We greatly appreciate you taking the time to do that. Thanks also for taking such good care of the cabin. We hope to see you again soon!

Cozy Cabin with Mountain View
Lovely cabin in the middle of a Lake Lure. Breath taking view of Blue Ridge Mountains! We were a family of seven and enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday in the cabin. Very clean, many amenities available. 5 minute walk to Chimney State Park and then some adventurous trails. Close to local city, Asheville. If you’re looking for a quiet retreat away from it all, this is the cabin to stay at.
Thanks so much for writing such a wonderful review of Chimney Lure Retreat. We delighted you enjoyed the cabin, its amenities and beautiful views. Please come visit us again soon!

Great place for the entire family
What a great place to stay in Lake Lure! This cabin has everything you need. We are mountain lovers and have stayed in several locations in this area and others but, this one is at the top of our list! Super clean, great beds, fully stocked kitchen and comfortable furniture really make this a wonderful place for the entire family. It has a nice view of Chimney Rock (you can even see the flag flying on it!) along with the Lake Lure Inn. The setting is very peaceful and easy to reach. Would highly recommend both the cabin and the staff of Distinctive Rentals. Sharon and Heather were such a pleasure to work with!

Excellent cabin for family
The three levels provided plenty of space and provided separation for privacy. Deer in back yard and view from back porches of clouds enveloping mountains added to our enjoyment. Cabin was verycomfortable and well equipped. Manager was very responsive to questions & inquiries.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of Chimney Lure Retreat and our management services. We are delighted you enjoyed the cabin and hope that you will come see us again soon!
