We stayed here in August 2012, the entire experience was FANTASTIC.
The rental process was very easy, working with the owners was great. They were responsive and accommodating. They provided DETAILED instructions on how to find the house, use the tv, wifi - where to find things and even gave recommendations for restaurants and activities.
The house is very clean and very well maintained. I found it to be better than described and better than expected. The pictures are very accurate.
The house is wonderful, our party was only two people - but we commented a few times it would be a great home to visit with a group of friends. The front and back porches were stunning, there is a two car garage, a laundry room with full size washer/dryer. A huge game room - we did not use it, but could image it would be used by a larger group.
We asked about movie channels on the TV and before we knew it the owners added every movie channel available along with the golf channel.
We did have a few issues with water pressure and with the Jacuzzi not working - the owner had a plumber come ASAP. The water pressure was fixed - but the Jacuzzi did not work. This was not a deal breaker for us considering everything else was so wonderful.
Lake Lure was great. This house was fantastic and the owners were great. I highly recommend this vacation home.
