Perfect for Family Vacation or Romantic Getaway

Bear Moon Lodge is ideal for a family vacation or romantic getaway (sorry, no four-legged guests). Located in Lake Lure, North Carolina, it offers 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath, and sleeps up to 9 comfortably. With 3 levels of living space, there are great gathering spaces and also adequate privacy. This home is 5.4 miles from the Beach at Lake Lure, 6.7 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 17 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

If you have to get a little work in, there are desks and internet access. The loft and oversized leather chair offer a nice place to curl up with a good book. The numerous televisions will ensure everyone is able to watch his or her favorite program. 

Beautiful Details and Optimal Comfort

The exterior of the home features a combination of wood and stone that fit the mountain location perfectly. It is situated so there are breathtaking views of Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Mountains from many of the rooms. On the interior, the use of drywall on some of the walls draws your attention to the warm color of the wood and to the home's many architectural details. Additionally, the wood and painted walls combination make the home more like a hybrid between a warm log cabin and cozy lake cottage, and the mix works together wonderfully.

When you enter through the kitchen, the lightness of the white cabinetry, light-color backsplash tiles with aluminum accents, dark center island, contemporary stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous granite countertops offer the perfect complement to the wood floors and ceiling beams. Just beyond the kitchen is the dining room, with a table that seats 6, that leads to the living area.

A wall of windows in the dining and living areas floods the open space with light and serves as an ever-changing gallery of the artwork of Nature. Focal points of the living area are the windows and the beautiful stone fireplace.

Each of the three levels has sleeping quarters, TV, and a full bathroom. On the main level is a bedroom with a king bed and adjoining full bath with double vanity, shower, and jetted tub. You can just step through the French doors to enjoy the deck. There is also a half bath on this level. On the upper level is a bedroom with queen bed, TV, and full bath. This level has the desk area. The lower level offers a bedroom with a king bed, TV, adjoining bathroom, and French doors that offer easy access to the outdoors. In addition to the second gas fireplace and gathering space, there is also a twin/full bed bunk set on this level.

​Seasonal Splendor ​

No matter the season, this refined mountain home provides a perfect mountain escape. Stay in the spring when the foliage is beginning to bloom and daytime temperatures average in the 60s. Enjoy your morning coffee on one of the decks or relax away the afternoon in one of the outdoor rocking chairs. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect—warm but not humid. Unwind with the soothing breezes and views from the porch overlook. ​With the upper deck outdoor seating and gas grill, enjoy cooking and dining in the fresh mountain air.

Come later in the year when a cozy log cabin feels just right; the autumn colors in this area are breathtaking and the winter weather opens an entirely new view with the leaves absent from the trees. Stay warm by the fireplace or relax in the jetted tub in the king bed suite bath.

​The scenic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and waters of Lake Lure can be viewed from nearly every room in the house. You will even enjoy the sunlight through the large windows throughout the day; the soft orange of sunrise; the warmth and brightness of the midday sun; and the majesty of sunset with its pink and blue hues. Seeing all of this reflected on the lake adds to the ambiance.

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful mountain setting with lake views. We are confident you will love the home and the area. We look forward to you and your family (sorry, no four-legged family members) being our guests.

Great views in a amazing roomy cabin! We did not even leave the place except to go to Grocery Store

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this place!!!! We will be back and that’s about all anyone needs to know! The downstairs bathroom does need a better showerhead and the tv in the bedroom downstairs did not work but these did not cause us any issues. We used the grill to cookout and everything else we needed was here! Cannot wait to come back with the rest of our family

We rented the cabin to celebrate my mom's 71st birthday. Short drive to Hendersonville and Asheville. Spacious and clean with a friendly staff. Check-in and checkout was quick and easy. Highly recommended, we will be back for sure.

A Comfortable and Well Maintained Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Hurricane Matthew had us evacuating our home in South Carolina and heading north for a few days. Another couple joined my husband and I thanks to the generosity of the owners of Bear Moon Lodge who helped us with a last minute request for "a port in the storm." The lodge is comfortably appointed and has a true cabin feel while having all of the necessities of life. We'd recommend it to friends and would happily return in the future.

Check it out!

This is a beautiful and extremely spacious log cabin, perfect for 6 adults and two children.

  • 4 of 5

It was a very pleasant surprise to discover this mountain home with updated, modern everything. It was impeccable, with plenty of room; the three levels afforded great privacy for everyone. The beds were the most comfortable ever! Do be mindful of where this is. As many other homes around Lake Lure, driveways can be steep and intimidating. We did have 5 flat screen t.v's,, but no satellite service the entire time we were there. With a teenager and a five-year old, that took some explaining! But this is the mountains for you! Also, it was the quietest quiet we've ever heard! We did have free Wi-Fi!

A representative did come visit and we confirmed with her the broken handle on the microwave oven and the half-way attached corner cabinet door, both items which could have been somewhat of a danger. The rep brought us a dvd of Dirty Dancing to compensate! A gentleman appeared Saturday evening after dark, regarding the satellite problem, but it was not possible for him to work on it in the dark. It was our last night anyway.

The furnishings were incredibly comfortable with plenty of chairs, tables and sofas. There were only 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids), but there was room for more; we never used the top floor! Each time we returned from the beach or a meal out, the youngest said, "Home Sweet Home!" We loved our stay there and hope to return.
