EFFICIENCY APARTMENT IN QUIET GATED COMMUNITY

Lake Lure Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Efficiency apartment is located below private home, nestled on two wooded acres in gated community with rolling hills and paved roads. We are very Motorcycle-friendly.

The apartment provides everything one or two people need for a stay. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a queen bed, pull-out couch and eating area. We wash all mattress cover, pillow covers and blankets after every stay. Wi-Fi and TV/DVD with dish network service. There is a flag stone-paved outside sitting area with a table, chairs, bench and room for two hammocks. A fire pit and gas grill is on the premises for you to use. We have chickens (no roosters?) and gladly share our fresh eggs. Our chickens do make some noise, especially when they get ready to lay.

There is plenty to do in the area. Asheville’s Biltmore house, antique shopping in nearby charming towns (Hendersonville, Saluda, Tryon or Landrum), pick-your-own apples during apple season, ski Sugar or Beech Mountain, hike or rock climb Chimney Rock, or fish or swim in Lake Lure and zip-line through nature. Most of all, the reason we moved here, is the motorcycle riding. We have an abundance of twisty roads with little or no traffic, and gladly share our knowledge of roads we discovered. If you choose to do nothing or do it all, our location gives you the option.

Our neighbor hood is very private, with only a hand-full of full time residents. Our roads are perfect for walking, jogging and serious cycling, but watch out for the deer and the turkeys.

About Evelyn Irwin

I grew up in Germany and moved to the USA in 1968 and later joined the military. I retired from the Air Force after 33 years of service. My husband still works for a major Oil Company. We moved to Lake Lure permanently four years ago. We enjoy living in an area with four seasons and with awesome motorcycle roads. Our community is secluded, with only a few full time residents. Our neighbors are also our friends. We have chickens for the enjoyment, and fresh eggs which we often share with neighbors.

Evelyn Irwin purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Evelyn Irwin chose Lake Lure

We purchased our property in this area because of my husbands love for riding motorcycles. We have put a great deal of work into our property and are very proud of what we have done. We enjoy the outdoor area of our home. Our community also allows us to have chickens. We built a very nice chicken coop and run and enjoy sitting outside watching our girls. It's better than TV. :)

What makes this apartment unique

Our Efficiency is only about 350 sq', but there is so much to do in our area, we feel that it is more than adequate after a long day of sight seeing and riding. We have a nice size sitting area with a small water feature where you can relax with a glass of wine or in my husbands case, a glass of Rum and a cigar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This VRBO property is highly recommended. Well worth the drive if you are visiting nearby Lake Lure or Rutherfordton. The Irwin's are a lovely couple who have thought of everything to ensure that your vacation is perfect. The uniquely shaped octagon efficiency apartment is extremely clean & well thought out in terms of space utilization as well as delightfully decorated. There are games, books, movies, hammocks and a propane grill all there for your enjoyment. They have every standard kitchen appliance or tool you might want as well as being stocked with coffee and other staples. Forget your cream rinse or lotion? No problem, the cabin is well stocked with anything you need.



They have beautiful flower and vegetable gardens & wildlife abounds. There are steps down to the creek, that take you to the unspoiled beauty of nature. The bird feeders and houses ensure a thrill every minute watching the beautiful wild birds. Their chickens (aka as "the girls") are full of personality & lay the most delicious eggs. They have a beautiful book with information about the different varieties of chickens that you will want to review, even if you never had any interest in chickens before your stay with them.



Most of all the kindness of the Irwin's is exceptional & you will want to come back to visit them.

Relaxing, Tranquil, and PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this little apartment. From the fully stocked kitchen to the waterfall out side of the private patio, it could not have been more perfect.
Not only was everything extremely clean and neat, but it was the most well stocked rental I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.
The owner not only made sure that everything was well stock, but all the homey touches to the decor were so charming.
The privacy that this couple provided us was outstanding. The only time they interacted with us is when we started the conversations. This was usually when they were feeding the chickens, early in the morning or later in the evening (no roosters!)
The owners completely opened their home to us and made us feel relaxed and welcome.
My husband and I have told everyone we know about this little quiet gem in the Carolina's and I'm sure that some of them are going to look it up.
As for us, we would recommend this rental to anyone interested in being away from the hassles of the vacation crowd and still be within driving distance of Brevard, Ashville, Lake Lure and other attractions in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Catrina for your kind words. I look forward to having you or any of your friends stay for a get-away. The weather finally turned and we are having some nice fall temperatures. Perfect for motorcycle riding.

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The apartment appeared just as it does in the photos. Very clean and charming. Our host was delightful, very thoughtful of our privacy, anticipated all of our needs and was very helpful in answering all of our questions. This place is a little gem. Would love to visit again.

Belated Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations are highly ideal for any couple, no creature comfort is overlooked. All you have to bring is clothes and food. The location is beautiful and very peaceful, nestled in the mountains. There is so much to do and see that is conveniently located in any direction. The owners are awesome people, they are careful to respect your privacy even though you are on their property. It takes very special people to allow strangers to come and enjoy themselves in such perfect surroundings. We look forward to many more stays.

Awesome accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
I needed a place to stay while working with a realtor in the area to find a vacation home to purchase. Evelyn was the nicest host ever! She was such a huge help when I had various questions about the local area, even questions involving my potential home purchase. She is also one of the nicest and friendliest people I have met in a long time. The accommodations are immaculate. This is probably one of the cleanest properties I have ever stayed in. The pictures are very accurate; no surprises when you get to the property. The chickens are cute and not at all noisy. The neighborhood itself is very quiet and nicely wooded. Everything you need to cook your meals is provided should you choose not to go out. I ate out once at Larkin's on Lake Lure. Very good food and friendly wait staff. The Ingles grocery store is pretty close too. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. There is WiFi service in the unit as well as cable TV. This is a nice home base location to venture out to Asheville, Flat Rock to see a play, Brevard to visit the waterfalls, it's only 1.5 hours north to Blowing Rock, Boone and Banner Elk if you want to go skiing, and it's only about 3 hours to Gatlinburg, TN. I happened to be in town over Labor Day weekend and got to visit the NC Apple Festival in Hendersonville. Very nice event and the weather was great. If you are looking for nice, clean accommodations for 1-3 people at a very reasonable price, this is the place! Thank you again Evelyn for your wonderful hospitality!

First experience using VRBO was an excellent one!

  • 5 of 5
From the first email to Evelyn until leaving her property, our experience has been extremely positive. On our arrival, she gave us a brief tour of the property making us feel so welcome like we were family. The cute little efficiency apartment was very well maintained and clean. I commented to Evelyn when we first entered the apartment that it looked and smelled like it was new! It was everything we anticipated and more; we were not disappointed. The good quality clean linens really impressed my wife. If ever traveling in that area, we'd like to stay there again.
