Why Karen and Jason chose Lake Lure
We realized we needed to find a way to get the family together and also get away from our daily grinds. Floating on the lake together, watching sunsets over the mountains and waking up to beautiful Lake Lure fits us perfectly!

Perfect weekend getaway!
Perfect weekend getaway! This was our second time staying in this lovely little property. It was perfection. Relaxing, clean, well stocked, with hours and hours of floating in the beautiful lake. We will definitely be back time and time again!
A Beautiful Place!
We had a wonderful stay at the Turtle House in early August. It is a lovely rustic home with all the amenities one would need to be connected to the world if need be, but also a place to decompress from the stresses of work and the world. The house offers stunning sunsets and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We loved the direct access to the water and our ability to kayak or paddle boat. The kids loved jumping off the dock and seeing the turtles who came up to the dock daily. The house sits in a cove so it is far more quiet than those homes on the main part of the lake. The boathouse rooftop deck is a great place to read, talk, or eat a meal. Other than the rooftop deck being in need of a new surface, we loved everything about the Turtle House and are already contemplating our return!
Turtle House is the perfect family getaway
We had so much fun staying at Turtle House. We are a family of four and it was just the right size. The house was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The property was well maintained and the view is breathtaking. The multiple decks and tons of outdoor seating options made it easy to relax and enjoy life at the lake.
We spent a ton of time in the water, which was calm and cool. The water is deep, so if you have young kids, make sure they have something to float on. My 6 year old was fine with either a life jacket (provided at the house) or a small float.
The wildlife was very active while we were there. We saw a small black snake, lots of ducks and enjoyed hanging out with an adorable turtle family. We also watched a bear checking out all the neighborhood trash cans. My only complaint is that we couldn’t stay longer!
A wonderful week at Turtle House
Our family of four had a fantastic week at Turtle House. The property is very clean and is as described. It is not a large home (as the listing notes) but it is well laid out and makes the most of its space. The small inside was of little consequence to our family as we spent nearly the entire week outside. The location on a no wake cove overlooking the main lake was ideal. We could float to our hearts content on the quiet water without worrying about traffic from the bigger boats. My kiddos loved seeing the turtles every day and relaxing on the boathouse deck. Previous reviews mentioned a problem with carpenter bees but that seems to have been rectified with the addition of some bee traps. Our most common flying visitors were the hummingbirds who stopped by the feeder (we replenished their sugar water so they were happy to visit). The only guests I think that this lovely little house might not suit would be those with mobility issues as there are steps both between the living and sleeping portions of the house and steps down to the water. For all others the Turtle House is a sweet little oasis. We were all sorry to leave and look forward to visiting again soon
My family and I had a great time for our weekend away!! We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay at the lake!! The house was very clean and well equipped for a family of 5!! The description in the listing was on point. All the little details made it very cozy! Thanks for sharing your lake home with us!!
Terrific Turtle House!!!
We had an amazing time at the Turtle house. Everything was clean and well thought out. we cooked a lot at the house and was able to find everything we needed. The kayak and peddle boat were so much fun! We saw lots of ducks, turtles and birds. An amazing stay and we would come again.
