This 70 year old cottage is situated less than 15 feet off beautiful Lake Lure on the Main Channel providing an exceptional lakefront experience with mountain ranges so close you feel a part of them, as well as being one mile from the center of the town of Lake Lure. It is a steep incline to access the house and NOT SUGGESTED for elderly guests or those with physical limitations.Our FREIGHT TROLLEY will carry your luggage and groceries for you!

The Enchanted Cottage provides the most Luxurious amenities in our homes today blended artfully in a traditional vintage setting. You will rest peacefully in our comfortable beds with 400-count sheets, feather beds, goose down comforters, and feather/down pillows, decorated tastefully with attractive quilts and duvets.Four Queen Bedrooms plus Two trundle beds (four twins) provide sleeping for 12 comfortably. Our quality towels will pamper you after a hot shower/bath and leave you relaxed and ready to further enjoy your cottage experience. Wood floors, lateral knotty pine boards, a wood-burning fireplace, large screened porch with two ceiling fans and seating for 12 allows for rocking, dining, playing games, napping, listening to music with room for your entire group.

UNLIMITED USE of our PONTOON BOAT allows for cruising the waters of Lake Lure any time of day, fishing, and swimming!

The top deck of the boat house is equipped with two tables, eight chairs, and four Adirondak chairs to provide 'on-the-lake' entertaining opportunities. Multiple decks with rocking chairs and swings allow for everyone to find their special place to 'just be' and enjoy the majestic mountains and lake directly in front of you. There is an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows or enjoying a fire on cool evenings. Two swings on the lower deck rock you gently and reverently while listening to the evening chimes of the local church bells.

The Enchanted Cottage is a Fun house and knows how to entertain the young & young at heart! There will be many memorable picture moments so be sure to pack your camera! If you have golfers in your group there are two courses nearby and tennis courts are located in the town of Lake Lure. There is a popular 'beach' located in town that provides lifeguards, a miniature water park, and gorgeous mountain vistas all around you. White-water rafting, river tubing, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, and zip line course are all within 30 minutes or less of The Cottage.

Our Caretaker, THE BEST ON THE LAKE, will meet you upon arrival and come in the day of your departure to clean the cottage, take inventory of all items, and confirm working order of the boat and other pertinent features to ensure that your deposit is returned to you within 10-15 business days of your departure. Any items of discussion will be addressed to you within three days of your departure to ensure prompt resolution of any discrepancies.

We can't wait to return!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such an amazing time and haven't stopped talking about wanting to return next summer. This beautiful house was fully equipped with everything needed for a relaxing, yet adventurous week. The scenery was magnificent, you couldn't ask for a more breath taking view. This vacation easily became one of our favorites and a must repeat. The property owners were easy to deal with and the caretakers were also wonderful. We were impressed that when we received our deposit back that the owners sent a hand written note, that showed that they really value customers. Like I said we are trying to figure out a date to return next summer!!!

Fun friends and families getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here. The view is amazing. Lake front and gorgeous mountain views. Even with a large group, sitting on the back porch in the morning, watching the sun come up was breath taking. Riding the boat to dinner was a fun experience for the families too! We spent our days on the sun deck and watched members of our group kayak and canoe. We also took a fun day trip to Chinmey Rock, very close by. What a fabulous trip- will definitely be back

AMAZING !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This charming house has it all! We were very happy with the location being right on the lake and close to whatever we needed (groceries, meals out, shopping, chimney rock), the ammenities, the VIEW (amazing), and the owner was awesome to work with! The trolley to take our items up and down the hill was great. We used the firepit for smores, the pontoon boat, and enjoyed every second of our trip. Plus, you can see the area where Dirty Dancing was filmed across the lake! Our family really enjoyed it and can't wait to come back!!! I would give it 10 stars if I could!

Amazing Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and easy to be in. The caretaker met us to move us in and out, so don't let the steps scare you! :) We enjoyed dinners on the screened porch, evening boat rides, and quick trips to Chimney Rock, which was ten minutes away. This house has amazing views. I would not hesitate to rent it again.

Nice house

  • 3 of 5

Although the home is beautiful it's not quite as pictured. Several items listed are not included... Make sure you get clarity. There is a large hole in the floor with a piece of plywood covering it.. Small items in need of repair or update. Non of my concerns were met by the owners

Owner's Response: To clarify the comments: the hole in the floor was created by a teenager jumping off a bed onto a skateboard on the floor, thus creating the hole. As there was no time between rentals to have a bonded contractor come in and make the repair without being present during their vacation we had him place a piece of plywood over the area and cover it with a rug. It was on the lower level and at the far end of the room and not in the traffic path. It has since been repaired. None of the pictures are modified or enhanced - they are actual photos. The reviewer also complained that the karaoke machine was not working so we have removed it. We have enjoyed renting and sharing our home for 10 years now and have a beautiful guest book filled with special memories from guests over the years. For further clarification please feel free to call or email us. Sincerely, Debbie and Ron
