About LouBeeLure: LouBeeLure is not a commercial establishment, but a vacation home owned by two sisters, whose names are Lou and Bee. It is made available to guests on the same basis that it is used by our families - that they will be caring and considerate in their use of the property and leave it in a condition that a subsequent visitor will find attractive and welcoming. As such, we do not require a deposit for damage.
My sister, Lou, and I grew up in Spartanburg, SC, and the waters of Lake Lure were our “playground" for fun times with family and friends. Our memories of summer are filled with sharing all that life on a beautiful mountain lake has to offer: swimming, skiing, boating, floating, sunning, relaxing, hiking,…all punctuated with laughter, games, skits, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and shared meals around the table. Lou and I purchased and enjoy LouBeeLure in the tradition of our roots: to keep our family continually connected in joyous fun as we grow and geography separates us.
We are blessed being by this perfect lake and the allure of the mountains drawing all those we love to us. We hope to share our blessing and offer a vacation rental with friend and family camaraderie as the main goal.

Lakefront, big water rather than a small, closely packed, tucked away cove;
Location is especially convenient: easy drive from the interstate & 5 minutes to the grocery store;
Loved the seemingly private neighborhood…car traffic at a bare minimum;
Liked the coziness of an older, traditional home;
Morning sun / afternoon shade.
Beautiful view - great time of year - great homeowner to work with.
My brother and I have lost count the number of years we've vacationed here in this cozy, clean and well appointed home. We've always love the lower deck at water level where we spend most of the day playing, relaxing and reading. Then in late afternoons and into the evening we occupy the covered lower porch. We love the rocking chairs and rock in them for hours.
This year was a pleasant surprise to see a new refrigerator and stove. Both are very nice stainless steel models.
We highly recommend LouBeeLure for a wonderful, relaxing time on beautiful Lake Lure. We'll certainly be back!
For several years now we have spent a week (or more) at this super comfortable home on beautiful Lake Lure. The owners are super attentive and the house is always clean and well stocked. The house in on 3 levels. On the main level you have an open area living and dining area as well as a small kitchen. The living room has a working fireplace (if you rent in the colder months). Also access to an outdoor deck with grill and dining set. Also on this level are two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs in the loft area is a large bedroom (king bed) and a small bathroom with a shower. On the lowest level you have a furnished den with tv, a table and chairs for playing board games (provided), one bedroom with 2 twin beds and a full bath. Also a laundry. Off the den is a covered deck that we absolutely adore and spend most of our time on in the evenings. We sit in the provided rockers looking out over the lake and share stories with our friends, enjoy drinks, and cherish the time we can spent together in such a nice setting.
There is a suspended boardwalk down to the boat house and lakeside deck where we spend our days floating on the water and lounging lakeside reading books.
The decor and feel of the house is if you are visiting your grandparents treasured vacation retreat. It is perfect for families who want to spend time together without the hustle of a more frenetic vacation destination.
Definitely intended for relaxing and recharging the batteries! We look forward to our return each year.
Our family of 5 had one of the most relaxing , enjoyable summer vacations ever. LouBeeLure had amazing lake views , awesome decks to swim off of , kayaking/canoeing options , and 3 levels for our family " spread out " in . The covered deck with the rocking chairs was especially nice to sit out on to be protected from the sun and sprinkles . The location of the cottage was spectacular for morning / evening strolls and we loved having Ingles so close by . We will definitely be back . Thank you , Bee and Lou!
We have been returning for many years each summer to this very comfortable and inviting home located on Yacht Island on beautiful Lake Lure. From the our first visit to the house several years ago we fell in love and knew we had found our annual summer vacation rental. This house will remind some of you of vacations from your youth when parents, grandparents and kids would all gather at a lake or beach house for a week of visiting, fun, and relaxation.
The home is laid out in three levels. The very top level holds a large loft bedroom with a California King bed, and a small bathroom. The Main level has 2 bedrooms, kitchen, bath, living room (with fireplace), and an exterior deck overlooking the lake. The lower level has an additional bedroom with twin beds, a bathroom, small laundry/utility room, a nice size den/tv/game room, and a very large exterior covered deck with rocking chairs and tables overlooking the lake.
There is a wooden walkway leading down to the boathouse and lakeside deck. A canoe and kayak are provided for guests use. We spend most of our days on this deck, playing in the lake, or relaxing with a good book.
In the evenings we while away the hours on the covered back deck of the house, laughing, telling stories, listening to music and enjoying a glass of wine or ice cold beer.
The owners of this home are tremendously gracious and show great concern that guests are well taken care of and the home is in top order for your stay. Over the years they have continued to make investments in the house, updating and adding amenities.
For me, this home is all about comfort and relaxation. Each year we anxiously await the time we can return to the lake and our cherished LouBeeLure!
We look forward to returning to this wonderful vacation home every year. I believe we are in our 10th year of spending a relaxing, sun soaked week enjoying the lake here. This house and it's amenities fits our needs perfectly. It's a wood paneled 1950's style mountain cabin with a huge stone fireplace in the living room. There are large chalet style windows on the front of the house affording plenty of sunlight and fantastic views of Lake Lure in the open living room/dining room/kitchen area. The home is always immaculately clean. The provided linens and sheets are also super soft and spotless. And I've never encountered an air conditioning system that can cool a house as thoroughly as the one in this home.
Although the inside amenities suit us perfectly, for us, the outside amenities are what keep us coming back year after year! There is a HUGE covered porch on the home's lower deck overlooking the "million dollar view" of the lake that is simply awesome to behold. The rocking chairs keep us on this porch for hours and hours in the late afternoon and late into the evening. Light a few candles out there and it is pure magical. Then you've got the stairs leading down to an additional outdoor lounging area on top of the boathouse. If you want do some sun-soaking, this is place for it. A few steps further down and you're on the deck on the water. This is our daytime headquarters. There is a canoe, kayak and life preservers provided for your enjoyment. And usually there are a generous assortment of inflatables for floating on the water. We love it down on that deck.
I just returned from this year's trip on the lake a couple of weeks ago but writing this review makes me long for another week there this year before the summer season ends. I don't think I can last another year!
I highly recommend this mountain rental. It's perfect for families with kids. And even for kids like us: 50 somethings that revert to childhood when we visit this paradise! Enjoy!
