I most certainly enjoyed my stay while visiting from out of state. It was fantastic and I have many photos of the gorgeous views and bold streams. I spent many hours lounging outdoors while listening to the water flowing endlessly downstream and stared at the single cloud in the most beautiful of blue skies. The birds would sing to me in the morning as I quietly sipped my morning coffee so not to disturb the baby deer nearby. I walked through downtown and the many shops with everyone stopping to talk to me and ask about where I was from. It is so friendly in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. I actually purchased land there after my brief visit and plan to build my very own someday soon. Everyone should come visit.
