Unlike many of the homes on Lake Lure this property does not have any steps to go down to reach the lake or steps to climb back up to reach the house. There is a gradual concrete pathway that is only 120' away from the boat house. You are provided with an electric Club Car golf cart for your use in taking your guests to the boat house and water front. You can also carry your food and drinks as the carts rear seat folds down to make a carry rack. Here you will find chairs and tables for your relaxing day in the sunshine and water. Floats and noodles are included. Also included are two lake kayaks for your enjoyment of the wonderful lake areas to explore. The house is located at the dam which ensures the warmest water in the lake.
The boat house has a great location for swimming and enjoying the water. Afternoon shade is a pleasant occurrence after a hot day in the sun. As evening draws to a close, be sure to take advantage of the lovely lights from the dam as they dance across the water and look up to enjoy our Carolina starry night sky.
This home ALSO COMES WITH A 24' PONTOON BOAT (50 HP Honda Four Stroke motor) that seats 12 guests. Lake Lure has 21 miles of shore line with 750 acres of water surface, so you can enjoy hours of fun on the boat as you explore the lake, shoreline, magnificent mountain views and swimming in wonderful secluded coves. ** Pontoon Boat available ONLY April 15th- November 30th (weather permitting)
Our lake was chosen by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top ten Most Scenic Man Made Lakes in the world.
Exclusive Mountain Properties
Lake Lure, North Carolina
This property is located close to numerous attractions and wonderful places to visit. Nothing can compare to the time you will spend in and on the waters of Lake Lure.
Beautiful home, stunning architecture, all the amenities you need, clean and even tastefully decorated for Halloween. No stairs down to the lake is a real bonus and the golf cart was welcomed by the less fit. We used the boat every day to enjoy the beautiful scenery, to go to dinner at Larkin's, play golf at Rumbling Bald and go for ice cream in Lake Lure. My entire family of 9 is already looking forward to coming back next year.
Our family stayed at this lovely home for 5 days recently while attending the Hickory Nut Gorge destination wedding of our daughter.
The decks were favorite gathering places for everyone. I'll never forget sitting on the lower deck in the early morning watching reflections of pink clouds and rising mist on the lake. The huge open concept of the floor plan was just terrific for staying connected with the coming and going of our extended family. The kitchen was well stocked and nicely arranged for food preparation and serving. The downstairs had everything anyone could possibly need. We all fell in love with the ambiance of the 'sunroom/reading room' on the main level.
We loved having the availability of the golf cart, boat, kayak and dock.
The owners were most gracious and helpful in every way. We very much appreciated their kindness and hospitality. They made reservations for us at their favorite restaurant when we inquired about a good place to eat upon our arrival and they even made short term parking available when our future in-laws stopped by.
Our family from KY, CA and Austria that stayed with us thought they could not have been treated more royally or have stayed at a more gracious home. We agree with them.
The week long stay we had at this house was fantastic. The house is exactly as described and displayed in the pictures. My husband is in a power wheelchair and the owners went out of their way to make sure all was ok. they built a ramp onto the deck to get into the house. John even figured out a way to get my husband easily and safely on the pontoon boat. Granted the master bath is not technically handicapped accessible but someone in a chair can maneuver around it quite easily given the floor space.
The floor plan is wide open. there is plenty of room for a large family or several couples looking to get away. Property was very clean and well maintained. The paved path from the house to the lake was steep but easily navigable even for a wheelchair (with good brakes!). There also is an electric cart for use up and down the hill which makes it very easy even for someone not sure on their feet to get down to the water.
The owners are very friendly and always available if a need arose. we had a very nice cruise with them on the lake.
As for things to do, there are many. the lake itself is gorgeous and well worth hanging around. Chimney rock is nearby and Asheville is under an hour away.
We would stay in this house again and would recommend it. We have stayed in many rental houses in the past and this was definitely one of the nicest with among the most helpful owners. Go!!!!!!!!! You will not regret it.
Wow! What a super vacation rental! We rented Stone Ridge for two weeks. First week was all adult, second week children were included. Both groups had an outstanding experience. The house was perfect. There were plenty bedrooms and baths for the first group and the kids enjoyed the loft during week two. The house is beautiful and was extremely well equipped with all the utensils you could possibly need. The two sets of washer/dryers were very handy. The pontoon boat was a great addition and the golf cart was very convenient for moving seniors and supplies to and from the boat house. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks. many floats and swimming and fishing from the dock (most of the fish were caught inside the boat house). The are so many things to do in the area. Chimney Rock is a must and the Biltmore makes a great day trip. Zip lining and white water rafting were very much enjoyed by the younger set. The Lake is beautiful and it was fun to just cruise around in the boat and check out all the beautiful homes. It was also very nice to take the boat to the local restaurants in the evening. John and Kathy, the owners, live nearby and were always willing to cheerfully answer any questions and provide any assistance that might be needed.
This turned out to be a super getaway for our families and we all hope that we can do it again sometime. This is a gem of a rental that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in a comfortable, gorgeous vacation home in a great area for a week or longer.
This house is everything the description says. We had the time of our lives. Our party consisted of 9 adults and a 3yr old and 9 month old . We had everything we needed for the baby as well as room for all the adults . We rented the pontoon boat and used it daily. The owners were very gracious and available if we needed anything . Will definitely come back with our large family. The house was perfect for our mom, no steps and a golf cart to ride down to the lake. This house has everything and more to offer.Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We loved this place!! What a wonderful home to share a large family gathering! The furniture, ramp down to the dock, boat, kayaks and everything were ideal! We will likely go back to this place!
My family and I had a wonderful summer vacation stay at Stoneridge the week of June 16. Our hosts, John and Kathy, made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the home was all we expected. We spent countless hours at the dock, enjoying swimming, fishing, and kayaking - the golf cart definitely came in handy to transport the old and very young back up the hill as it is rather steep but good exercise. The house was spotless, the kitchen stocked just as advertised, and there was more than enough room for our party of 11. While the house is located on a cove directly across from the dam, I found it to be a wonderful location in that it was quite peaceful and we were able to swim without concern of speeding boats, We did rent the available pontoon boat for the week and thoroughly enjoyed using it to explore Lake Lure - being able to jump off the boat in the middle of the lake was quite a treat for the teenage boys, not to mention the adults enjoyed the fishing. I would definitely recommend staying at Stoneridge, you will not be disappointed in the amenities and the hospitality of the owners.
