About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Futon, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Big enough for the whole gang, this 5-bedroom, 3 bath, beautiful Lake Lure vacation rental has a Game Room with a Ping Pong and Pool Table, Hot Tub, outdoor fire pit and great mountain views. The home has 3 levels of bright and airy rooms decorated in a mountain lodge theme. We can also lock off portions of the home and rent it as a 3 bedroom home and you still get the hot tub and game room at a reduced rate. That's a great deal for a honeymoon getaway or for 2 or 3 couples!

Located on a private, heavily wooded ridge, this comfortable home is less than 2 miles to the Lake Lure Marina and Beach and Chimney Rock State Park. After a day spent hiking in Chimney Rock State Park, or boating on the pristine waters of Lake Lure, come home to your own mountain lodge and enjoy a soothing soak in your private hot tub under the stars.

There is so much to enjoy in this wonderfully spacious home! On the main level is the large, open great room with a stone fireplace with gas logs, and an entertainment center with satellite TV, and a DVD/CD player. The great room and open dining area have vaulted ceilings and large windows with expansive views of mountains and woods. Sliding glass doors out of the living area lead to a deck which runs the width of the house and is furnished for outdoor dining. Breakfast is wonderful on the deck or you can prepare steaks on the charcoal grill. Everything is provided in the fully equipped kitchen to prepare a meal for a large group. On this level are also 2 bedrooms, one with a king and one with a queen, and a full bath.

On the lower level is a huge game room with leather sofas, wide screen satellite TV, a DVD/CD player, and a ping pong/pool table. Large windows let in lots of light and have beautiful woodland views. A multitude of games, puzzles and books also wait to entertain you.

There is a private 2-bedroom suite off the game room with a full bath. One bedroom has a king bed and one has 2 twin beds.

The master bedroom, which is tucked away on the top level, is very private and has a king bed and a spacious bath with walk in shower. There is also an open loft with a futon sofa overlooking the great room which has a fantastic view of the mountains.

For honeymoons, newly weds can rent the house with access to the master suite upstairs and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views from the king bed, have a spirited game of pool in the game room and luxuriate in the hot tub.

You and your family and friends can enjoy the privacy and serenity of this wonderful Lake Lure vacation rental, or venture out for a day of hiking in Chimney Rock State Park or take a boat cruise on Lake Lure, all within a 5-minute drive.

PLEASE NOTE: We have a 5-night minimum in the busy summer months, a 3-night minimum on holidays and a 2-night minimum the rest of the year. We turn over on Sat or Sun in the summer. However, sometimes scheduling allows us to accept less than a 5-night minimum in summer, so please don't hesitate to inquire. However, we always have a 2-night minimum. We are sorry, but we are unable to accept one-night rentals.

OFF SEASON SPECIAL: During the months of Jan-April, rent Lure Me In Lodge for 3 nights and the 4th night is FREE!

About Sharon Z. Ryan

We are a two professional couples with grown children and grandchildren. We have all traveled extensively and rented many vacation homes so we knew we wanted our own vacation home to be filled with amenities and fun things to do. We are avid boaters, golfers and tennis players and love card and board games. Entertaining family and friends is a priority for us, so we have furnished our vacation home so that others can enjoy spending quality time with their family and friends and feel comfortably at home.

Sharon Z. Ryan purchased this house in 2006

Why Sharon Z. Ryan chose Asheville Area

We bought our Lake Lure home because we fell in love with this area. We travel a lot and feel that this is one of the most scenic areas we have ever visited. The beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains is simply unsurpassed! We have grown children who love staying in our home and now that we have grandchildren, we have equipped the home with a pack and play and a booster seat. We are avid tennis players and we enjoy the tennis courts that are only 5 minutes away. There is also a playground nearby and, of course, boating on Lake Lure. We can't wait to try the new zip lining which is a recently added attraction.

What makes this house unique

We added a fire pit a couple of years ago and have lots of fun making s'mores and roasting hot dogs outside. We love to take walks near our home because there's not much traffic on our roads so they are quiet and very private. We often encounter wild turkey and deer on our walks. And, of course, there's nothing like soaking in the hot tub after a day spent hiking! But we think one of the best things about our home is that it is comfortable for large groups. You can be all together in the open plan living/dining/kitchen area, but spread out on 3 floors when privacy is desired. We furnished it with interesting items from our travels and with comfortable furniture so you can put your feet up. You won't feel you need a vacation to get over your vacation when you leave Lure Me In Lodge.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Graduation Celebration and Fun to Boot

  • 5 of 5

We visited NC from Tennessee for our first grandchild's graduation located only an hour from the Lure Me In lake house. This lake house provided ample room for extended family to be included. The house was absolutely wonderful. There were plenty of bedroom & bed accommodations, a play room down stairs for the youth, a great kitchen to prep meals, but best of all was the deck with a view of the mountains. Oh, and also the quick (less than two minutes) to the Lake Lure community. Lake Lure is a hidden treasure with shopping, eating, swimming, hiking, and more. In addition, it is not commercialized at all - no franchise hotels, big box retail, or such. So I highly recommend visiting this lake house and it's quaint surroundings.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a office weekend workshop. It slept 8 adults and a baby fairly comfortably. The view off the deck of the mountains is beautiful. It is very close to the lake and restaurants, and we enjoyed a trip to Chimney Rock for lunch and shopping. The beds were mostly comfortable, there was plenty of sitting and a game room down stairs. We didn't use the firepit but the hot tub was nice. Parking is a little tight, 2 cars can squeeze on the parking pad, with a third behind, but any more will be parking on the side of the gravel road.

Family Vacation 2016 Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary by having everyone vacation together. Our group of 11 consisted of ages ranging from 70’s to as young as 10. Everyone had a great time! This home provided everything we could need. It was spacious but very comfortable and inviting. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and paddle ball. The view was breathtaking and we saw deer each day along with wild turkeys and several times of birds. The kitchen provided everything needed. Enjoyed walks around the site and for any future guest, know that if you pass the house and keep going, you end up back where you started. It’s a great 30 minute walk. The location provided our family with so much to do. Needed more than a week to do it all but at the end of our trip, we agreed, for us the most fun was day on the pontoon boat and tubing on the Green River. We truly had a fantastic trip and many fun memories.
