Absolutely beautiful !!! We enjoyed our Family Reunion all week. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked in which our family chefs made some awesome meals. The outdoor spaces were so inviting where we stayed most of the time. So relaxing. Did not want to leave. We will be back.

We came back a second time, that's how much we love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to The Moore House in as many years. For two reasons. Quality and service.

Quality:

The house is magnificent with lots of space and large windows that generously bring the outdoors, in. All the common areas are spacious and encourage group dynamics. This is important to us as we generally are a large group of between 6 and 10 people.

The drive way is spacious enough to park three cars, and you can pull them up close to the front door, which makes un-packing and packing easy to do. The hot-tub seats 4 people comfortably, and works like a charm. We used it twice a day. One group early in the morning to watch the sunrise, and another later that day to watch the sunset.

The boathouse is large and spacious and a great place for a couple of us to throw down some yoga matts and do some stretching in the sun after a paddle in the canoe.

Service:

The owners are very easy to communicate with, and genuinely want the best for their customers. They know that you are here to unwind and de-stress. They give you your space and they check in once to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. It would be an understatement on my part to say that our interactions with the owners during our first stay (a year ago), swayed our decision to come back for a second time. They are fantastic people.

If you're looking for a special place, tucked away from the main road, that will make you forget about the stresses and responsibilities of every day life, then this is the place to be. I will not hesitate to rent this home again, and again, and again...

In My Dreams

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifteenth year our family has been to Lake Lure and the third consecutive year we have stayed in the Moore House. I can’t say enough for both the house and its owner. The flat paved parking area allows for easy unpacking. The house overlooks the lake with gorgeous views from almost every room. We are avid cooks and are thrilled to have such a well-equipped kitchen. Every pot and pan and small appliance you would ever need are there. The house is immaculate and the furnishings throughout are tasteful and comfortable. There are ten of us (three generations) and, while we love to spend time together, we also enjoy the many porches and terraces for a little privacy to read, nap or just contemplate the beauty of the view. It’s hard to decide on a favorite spot. Is it the screened porch where we gather one by one for coffee in the morning? Or maybe the covered terrace, the scene of cutthroat board games mid afternoon. A real possibility is the pontoon boat when we’re out for a sunset cruise. Or, it could be the spacious great room where we all collapse following a day of swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, and bouncing on the trampoline. The whole place is amazing and perfect for making beautiful memories. Thanks, John, and put me down for this week forever.

Splendid and Grand just like we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a magnificent home and exactly what we were looking for in a week long stay at Lake Lure. We wanted waterfront,... water sports,... space,... peace,... quiet and luxury. This has it all.

Magnificent kitchen that allowed us to take care of most of our meals. Out-door cookout area had plenty of space for our final super with added friends. Clean and spacious bathrooms with ample hot water for all 10 of our crew. Pool table for when the weather was off and lots of other social spaces for a group to break up in if they wanted. The home is clean and in fantastic condition. Very nicely furnished and spacious.

Centrally located with only a 5 minute drive to the grocery store and restaurants, and quietly nestled up on a bank that gave us a great view of the lake.

This is a fantastic home and we will look to come back again in the future. Thanks for a memorable and magical time on the water.

"Spectacular" is spot on.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here the first week of June, 2014. Photos really do not do the place justice. It is every bit as advertised and then some. Renting the available pontoon boat is highly recommended. The entire outdoor stone fireplace terrace/grotto area is absolutely amazing, and if my wife and I could have somehow stuffed all of it into the trunk of our car to magically re-install at our home, we would have! Lake Lure / Chimney Rock is a wonderful place for a family vacation, with perfect water temperatures in the Lake, even this early in the summer. Rent this place and you will not be disappointed. You will be very sad to leave, though.

Truly a dream vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This past New Year's Eve we spent a week at this gorgeous home with the whole family to celebrate my In Laws 50Th wedding anniversary. We had the most amazing time ever! This location has everything one can hope for. The cold weather did not discourage us from using the pontoon boat and it was well worth it! We cannot wait to go back. It is a very special place and the owner John is extremely friendly and welcoming.
