BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN AND SUNSET VIEWS! BRING YOUR FAMILY AND BOAT!!

We invite you to unwind and relax in our charming cottage with glorious mountain and sunset views on Beautiful Lake Lure. You take only four short steps from the street and you enter into the top floor of our cottage renovated to include modern amenties while still retaining the rustic charm. We added old fashioned beaded board ceilings upstairs and refinished the original wood floors.

You will find one full bath (linens provided) with stack washer/dryer, vanity sink and tub/shower. Down the hall, you have two bedrooms, one with queen size bed and ceiling fan, and one with bunkbed with double mattress on bottom and twin mattress on top (children only on top bunk). You can step outside onto the upstairs porch to greet the morning with your tea or coffee and enjoy the glorious views of the lake and mountains on the swing or chaise lounges.

Downstairs is the living area with the original knotty pine paneling, with one comfy sofa and two chairs, (one chair is a leather recliner), to cozy up in front of the gas fireplace and enjoy the selection of books, games, satellite tv, dvd. Movies available at Ingles Grocery Store. Please note the sofa is not a sleeper sofa, however if needed, one guest may sleep on sofa with sheets and linens located in downstairs closet.

When you are ready to eat, you will find a fully stocked kitchen with microwave, frig, stove and a dishwasher to help clean up. You can move the cooking outdoors to the gas grill and keep an eye on the burgers from the downstairs back porch furnished with classic glider and chairs, and then eat outdoors on the picnic table.

While you are enjoying the back porch, yard, boathouse and lake, you will find for your convenience the second bathroom located on the back porch, which has a shower, sink and commode. A few steps from the porch brings you to about 12 stone steps leading to the deck on top of the boathouse with dining furniture and lounging furniture with those glorious views of the lake and mountains. Down another short flight of steps takes you to the dock where you will find a canoe (life jackets supplied) and a paddle boat for getting around the lake.

Try your hand at fishing where past guests have caught trout and bass, (and some have caught a quiet time), or go for a swim to cool off in the clear waters of Lake Lure. Remember the water is at least 15 feet deep in front of our boathouse! The Simple Life Cottage is located on the east side of the lake on a large quiet cove with a no wake zone (not far off the main channel), so that swimming, fishing, canoing and pedalling is safe and fun.

Selected as one of the ten most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic, Lake Lure is nestled in the serene setting of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You will discover the magic and bounty of nature in this wondrous canyon known as Hickory Nut Gorge. Lake Lure was built in 1925 and consists of approximately 1500 acres with 27 miles of shoreline. Major motion pictures filmed here include Firestarter, A Breed Apart, Dirty Dancing, and Last of the Mohicans.

The iso-thermal belt provides enjoyable climate and four season splendor year round. For the 'active life' scenic attractions, parks, hiking, fishing, zip lining, horseback riding, white water rafting, and water sports, as well as waterfalls close by, good food, and quaint shops. For the 'simple life' relax and lounge on the deck on top of our boathouse enjoying the lake and mountain views with a good book.

So Sorry, but No Smoking (except outside) and No Pets allowed.

Bed, bath and kitchen linens included.

Maximum occupancy is five guests at all times (4 adults and 1 child), visitors included. Maximum parking is for two vehicles. Ask about possible extra (third) parking spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful 12 days in your cute, little cottage. We greatly enjoyed all the many places to sit, relax, enjoy the views and listen to the calming splashing of the lake. The deck overlooking the lake is fabulous. With the canoe and pedal boat to explore the lake, and many nice places - Asheville, Hendersonville - close by to visit our days were quiet and relaxing but never boring. Thank you for sharing the "Simple Life" with us.

Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to relax! Convenient to everything. Great communication with the owner. The house had everything you could possibly need. The dock was perfect to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the geese (bring bread)! Beautiful location on the lake, very peaceful I would definitely go back. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise!

Getaway perfection

  • 5 of 5

This by far has been our favorite vacation to date. The cottage is very clean and super cute. You can tell that it is well maintained. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning time and feeding the geese and ducks. It sits beautifully on Lake Lure and is so quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend this cottage for a couple or small family looking for a getaway. It was very nice having the Ingles approx 10 minutes away. The cottage is a ways from town when driving the mountain roads. We are definitely keeping this cottage on our list for places to visit again.

A quaint cabin on the lake with all you need to have a great stay in the lake lure area

  • 4 of 5

The lake lure cabin was perfect for our 5th anniversary getaway for 2. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the location was great to play in the lake lure area. We had easy access to the new Ingles grocery and enjoyed grilling steaks one night on the provided weber. Close proximity to Chimney Rock with great views and reasonably close to Brevard and Asheville. We also enjoyed a day of wine tasting at Overmountain and Parker Binns wineries which were close and good quality wines with very friendly hosts, Dinner and shopping in Saluda with dinner at Newman's was also quite fun and tasty. The cabin also had a canoe which we took out for an afternoon spin. There were geese, ducks and jumping fish every am but very few people in the cove. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next trip to Lake Lure!

Perfect romantic lake getaway - August 2016

  • 5 of 5

The whole house is clean and very well maintained. Based on previous reviews, we brought paper products (paper towels, toilet paper and coffee filters), detergents (dish and laundry), foil, oil, spices...but we didnt really need any of it as there was some (probably left over from previous guests). Anyways, it's always good to come prepared. The Ingles 10min away on NC-9 is well stocked and we went there a couple of times to get groceries. The house was perfect as we cooked all our meals in the fully equipped kitchen (large fridge and freezer, electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster oven) and even used the gas grill for steaks. The bed (main bedroom queen) was comfortable and the bathroom was cosy, abundantly stocked with plush towels. We did not spend much time in the living room other than watching the olympics on cable tv while cooking. There was plenty of room for 2 adults, and we thought an additional adult and kid or a couple of kids would fit...not sure about an additional couple as the 2nd bedroom is a bunked queen and twin bed.

The houseboat was perfect for candlelit dinners under the stars. We took full advantage of the lake thanks to the provided water toys (blowup raft, canoe and pedal boat), swimming during the day (there's some nice shade by the pier) and canoeing/pedal boating to the middle of the lake to watch the sunset (splendid views!). The house is in a cove, but close to the main waterway. We did not want to leave and can't wait to go back!

After checking out, we went to the Lake Lure marina and took a boat tour (highly recommended! $15/adult), walked across the Flowering Bridge and visited nearby Chimney Rock State Park ($13/adult).

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the lovely in-depth review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for being our guests! FYI for Future Guests: We stock starter paper supplies and other items that are noted in the email letter and contract you will receive after your payment is received. Also, please note the typo, as there is a boathouse (not houseboat) with a large deck on top for candlelit dinners and mountain and sunset viewing, relaxing and reading, star gazing....
