Why Joan Koone chose Asheville Area

Our family has owned houses on Lake Lure since 1950. After my dad passed away, my mom left the house to my sister, 3 brothers, and myself. Because I live within ten miles of the the lake, I am fortunate to enjoy the lake more frequently year round. My favorite restaurant is Point of View.

What makes this cottage unique

There is not a more beautiful place to spend a relaxing vacation than Lake Lure. The no wake cove allows you to float or canoe safely. We provide plenty of floats, life jackets, a canoe, and 2 kayaks.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing, cozy, and quiet (except for our 2 grandbabies !)...we had a wonderful family vacation with our two daughters and their families at Lake Lure. The cottage was clean and had delightful decor. We especially enjoyed the patio area atop the boat house; all the adults jumped off at least once. One of our favorite activities was canoeing to different coves nearby and sitting on the screened-in porch during the rain. Lovely view at sunset...

Great Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was one of two houses on Lake Lure that I rented for a family reunion. The house was well kept, clean, easily cooled down with the air conditioning units, and well furnished. The kitchen was spacious, with nice dishware and everything you needed to fix a nice meal. The outside deck was very nice, situated in a side channel of the lake where our children could easily play in the water and jump off the upper deck (their favorite activity). They had several well-kept kayaks and a canoe (with life vests, paddles, etc.), as well as an additional refrigerator/freezer in the lower deck for convenient access to cold beverages while outside. I highly recommend this house.

Great Get-Away!!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here with family. First trip for all of us to Lake Lure. Just what we all needed. The cottage was perfect. Very cozy, great porches, adorable bedrooms and the water was perfect. We were able to bring our dog - who loved the boat house roof patio. The cove is quiet and relaxing. Great view of mountains too. Had a great dinner at Larkin's on the Lake. Chimney Rock City is very close. The kids loved the gem finding and shopping. We hope to come back very soon!

Best rental on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Just had the most wonderful family vacation at Lake Lure. We've vacationed at the lake for many many years and this is by far our favorite lake house. Its roomy and has all of the comforts of home. It has a great deck for sunbathing and is in a perfect quiet cove with lots of nice and friendly neighbors. Best of all its pet friendly so, we were able to bring our fur kids. We'll be back for sure :)

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my! This cottage is a little piece of heaven! It has everything you could need or want on vacation. Cozy house with a large kitchen for family dinners. Wonderful screened proches with comfortable furniture. Large deck on the boat house with a beautiful view of the lake and the quiet cove. My family made memories that will last forever. The ONLY bad thing about our vacation was leaving and we hope to return as soon.
