BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN AND SUNSET VIEWS! BRING YOUR FAMILY AND BOAT!!

We invite you to unwind and relax in our charming cottage with glorious mountain and sunset views on Beautiful Lake Lure. You take only four short steps from the street and you enter into the top floor of our cottage renovated to include modern amenties while still retaining the rustic charm. We added old fashioned beaded board ceilings upstairs and refinished the original wood floors.

You will find one full bath (linens provided) with stack washer/dryer, vanity sink and tub/shower. Down the hall, you have two bedrooms, one with queen size bed and ceiling fan, and one with bunkbed with double mattress on bottom and twin mattress on top (children only on top bunk). You can step outside onto the upstairs porch to greet the morning with your tea or coffee and enjoy the glorious views of the lake and mountains on the swing or chaise lounges.

Downstairs is the living area with the original knotty pine paneling, with one comfy sofa and two chairs, (one chair is a leather recliner), to cozy up in front of the gas fireplace and enjoy the selection of books, games, satellite tv, dvd. Movies available at Ingles Grocery Store. Please note the sofa is not a sleeper sofa, however if needed, one guest may sleep on sofa with sheets and linens located in downstairs closet.

When you are ready to eat, you will find a fully stocked kitchen with microwave, frig, stove and a dishwasher to help clean up. You can move the cooking outdoors to the gas grill and keep an eye on the burgers from the downstairs back porch furnished with classic glider and chairs, and then eat outdoors on the picnic table.

While you are enjoying the back porch, yard, boathouse and lake, you will find for your convenience the second bathroom located on the back porch, which has a shower, sink and commode. A few steps from the porch brings you to about 12 stone steps leading to the deck on top of the boathouse with dining furniture and lounging furniture with those glorious views of the lake and mountains. Down another short flight of steps takes you to the dock where you will find a canoe (life jackets supplied) and a paddle boat for getting around the lake.

Try your hand at fishing where past guests have caught trout and bass, (and some have caught a quiet time), or go for a swim to cool off in the clear waters of Lake Lure. Remember the water is at least 15 feet deep in front of our boathouse! The Simple Life Cottage is located on the east side of the lake on a large quiet cove with a no wake zone (not far off the main channel), so that swimming, fishing, canoing and pedalling is safe and fun.

Selected as one of the ten most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic, Lake Lure is nestled in the serene setting of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You will discover the magic and bounty of nature in this wondrous canyon known as Hickory Nut Gorge. Lake Lure was built in 1925 and consists of approximately 1500 acres with 27 miles of shoreline. Major motion pictures filmed here include Firestarter, A Breed Apart, Dirty Dancing, and Last of the Mohicans.

The iso-thermal belt provides enjoyable climate and four season splendor year round. For the 'active life' scenic attractions, parks, hiking, fishing, zip lining, horseback riding, white water rafting, and water sports, as well as waterfalls close by, good food, and quaint shops. For the 'simple life' relax and lounge on the deck on top of our boathouse enjoying the lake and mountain views with a good book.

So Sorry, but No Smoking (except outside) and No Pets allowed.

Departure Cleaning Included. Bed, bath and kitchen linens included.

Maximum occupancy is five guests at all times, visitors included. Maximum parking is for two vehicles. Ask about possible extra (third) parking spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful 12 days in your cute, little cottage. We greatly enjoyed all the many places to sit, relax, enjoy the views and listen to the calming splashing of the lake. The deck overlooking the lake is fabulous. With the canoe and pedal boat to explore the lake, and many nice places - Asheville, Hendersonville - close by to visit our days were quiet and relaxing but never boring. Thank you for sharing the "Simple Life" with us.

Loved this lakefront home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house and enjoyed it very much! It is small but perfect for spending time with your family. We enjoyed the pedal boat and canoe, dock, and upstairs porch. Plan to bring all of your groceries with you and then just never leave the cabin! I loved that it was lakefront!

Loved the cozy cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

I planned this surprise weekend getaway for my husband and myself for our 16th anniversary! It was cold when we arrived and we were happy to see that the fireplace had already been turned on for us! We loved having a great view of the lake from the bedroom and being able to wake up to it each morning. The backyard is covered in green moss and it made it seem more charming. The overall cozy feel of the cabin is exactly what we needed! We enjoyed the movies they provided, my husband watched Dirty Dancing for the first time(lol). It was too cold to really enjoy the dock and outside porches, but I imagine they are great in the warmer months. We plan on going back in the summer with the kids and will definitely request this cabin again!! Also, the towns of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are great for those who like hiking, swimming or just being in the outdoors. The locals are very friendly as well. We can't wait to go back again!!!!

Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We had a most relaxing time at this warm, cozy and inviting cottage. So close to Chimney Rock, shopping, restaurants, and Ingels grocery store which was very impressive. Spent most of our down time on the back porch. What a great view, so peaceful and serene. Would not change a thing.

Our "Simple Life" Stay 10/18-10/21

  • 5 of 5

As a recently engaged couple, we chose to celebrate the good news in the Mountains. With beautiful views of Lake Lure, tours of Asheville and a climb to the top of Chimney Rock- we had an excellent adventure. The Cabin was situated quite close to the grocery store and local souvenir shops. Everything on our itinerary was within close reach. We enjoyed the cabin as much as the great outdoors. Every morning, we were greeted to spectacular views of the Lake. Watching movies, playing guitar on the dock and grilling our own burgers outside. We will both miss this cozy cabin, but the memory of this wonderful vacation will remain with us for a very long time. It was perfect!

Lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Our small family of four spent a very relaxing, long weekend. The water quality of Lake Lure is amazing. The depth off the dock is at least 20 ft., which was surprising to us. Most other lake access we have experienced is not that deep. The house is cozy and comfortable. We had a great time! More than 4 people would be too much for this cottage.
