LAKE LURE RENTAL: ROMANTIC LAKESIDE GETAWAY COTTAGE

Lake Lure Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Five Oaks is a cozy one-bedroom lakeside guest cottage situated on beautiful Lake Lure. It is the perfect spot for a romantic relaxing getaway vacation for two, or for a couple with one or two small children. Lake Lure is nestled in the narrow groove of Hickory Nut Gorge just 25 miles southeast of Asheville, NC. It was named by National Geographic as one of the ten most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. Several movies, including Dirty Dancing have been filmed at Lake Lure. There is a never-ending variety of outdoor activities to be enjoyed in and around the lake, including swimming, fishing, diving, canoeing, and hiking.

Five Oaks Cottage was built in 2005 and is tastefully decorated and equipped with a full kitchen and bath with shower. We supply luxury linens, towels, and hygiene products for our guests and an information booklet listing local activities and attractions to help make each guest's stay both memorable and enjoyable. Guests have full access to the dock and boathouse rooftop deck for swimming, fishing, lounging, and enjoying the spectacular views of the lake, the gorge, and Chimney Rock Park. We also provide use of a classic wood and fiberglass canoe so you can tour the lake and visit sites of interest such as the cove where portions of Dirty Dancing were filmed. There are even some very nice restaurants that can be reached by water.

The cottage is situated behind the main house and has lake views from most windows and from the attached deck. The boathouse and dock are about 150 feet in front of the cottage. About 15 stone steps lead down to the ground level of the main house. A stone pathway then leads you around the house. Another 15 steps will take you to the rooftop deck atop the boathouse, and another 15 steps will take you down to the dock at water level. Having to negotiate steps down to the water is the norm at Lake Lure because it is a mountain lake. There are very few lodgings on Lake Lure that do not require the traversing of many steps to reach water level. Five Oaks Cottage, believe it or not, has fewer steps to the water than many. Still, it may not be suitable for older folks or those with disabilities.

In addition to wireless internet, a TV with satellite reception, CD and DVD players, and a component stereo, we have provided a set of computer speakers for use with an mp3 player. Five Oaks is the cottage where the author/owner conceived and wrote the popular series of children's books called The Lake Lure Chronicles (Google 'Lake Lure Chronicles' to view). We believe you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Five Oaks and will create many lasting memories of this most beautiful and peaceful place.

We fell in love with Lake Lure the first time we saw it in 1984, and returned three weeks later and purchased a small cottage on the lake for weekend and summer vacation use. In preparation for retirement at the lake in 2006, we added a major second story addition to the original small cabin and built Five Oaks Cottage, a guest-house for additional space for family and friends and for a vacation rental when we are not using it. We are delighted to be able to share this beautiful and special place with others and we enjoy meeting the many wonderful folks who find us through VRBO and become our guests at Five Oaks.

The natural beauty of this area is unsurpassed.

Swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, and just plain relaxing on the boat house deck and dock area.

Great place for a wonderful week in the Lake Lure area. Very comfortable, quiet and clean cottage. The lake was gorgeous. Could have stayed all month if only I could have and been very happy in this nice spot.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the cottage. It was spotless and had all the amenities one could need. Better than advertised! David and Penny were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed spending time with them. There was plenty to do in the area and it was nice at the end of the day to come home to the cottage. We brought our dog Maggie and she enjoyed our walks through the neighborhood. Hope to return.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and only wished that it was longer. I broke down in tears on the dock the morning of departure because I was not ready for it to come to an end. I loved the long walks on the neighboring streets and the beauty of the wild life. I brought my two dachshunds which I greatly appreciate being able to do so.

Thanks David and Penny for the hospitality!

Sincerely,
L Parker - Lincolnton, NC

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took a few days away from our 5 kids and couldn't have been happier staying at Five Oaks! We loved the quaint little cottage, dock, lake, canoe and more! The cottage was immaculately kept and provided all of the amenities needed. The quiet atmosphere and thunderstorm provided a wonderful environment for reading, relaxing and great napping! We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the dock and exploring Lake Lure on the canoe. The swimming was great as we enjoyed watching the lake traffic while floating on the rafts with a spectacular view of Chimney Rock! We can't wait to visit again!
