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, 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.
