Lake Lure House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Relaxing Rental on the Rocky Broad River at Elysium Lodging. The cabin is 100 feet from the riverbank, NOT water front, nestled in the woods below the Chimney Rock at the top of the driveway. It is just a short walk to the stairs and river font, all on the same property.

Location: Chimney Rock, Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA. Minutes from Chimney Rock Park, one mile from Lake Lure and the beach water park, and 25 miles from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. The Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah’s Casino, Tweetsie Railroad, Sugar Beach skiing, are less than two hours away.

Accommodations: Two-story cabin with one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, and great room on each level with laundry and hide-a-bed sofa on lower level. Sleeps two to six.

Elysium (from Greek mythology meaning 'a place of ideal bliss or complete happiness; paradise:) Lodging offers restful rental at the end of a dead-end street that runs parallel to the Rocky Broad River near the village of Chimney Rock, North Carolina.

The two-story cabin has an open porch on the 'treetop' level with porch swing and barbecue grill. The view from every window is wooded treetops and Bald Mountain. The dramatically illuminated Chimney 'Rock' can be seen in the evenings. The sounds of the rushing river can be heard at night from just a few yards down the driveway where steps lead down to a beautiful riverfront with two swings and a hammock.

The Rocky Broad is wonderful for fishing, wading, duck watching, rock hunting, and tubing and is just a short walk from your door. The cabin is just a few short blocks to the village of Chimney Rock, filled with charming shops and restaurants and a mile from the beach at Lake Lure with boat rental and pontoon boat rides around the lake. Chimney Rock Park offers a day of climbing adventure or just a birds eye view of breathtaking miles and miles of beautiful mountain area terrain in all directions. On a clear day it seems you can see forever. The months of May and October are particularly spectacular.

Amenities: Air Conditioning, gas wall heaters, shower, towels, and Jacuzzi tub in large upstairs cabin bath, lower level of cabin handicap accessible, full bath and shower, Cable TV, Full Kitchen with microwave, stove, refrigerator, cooking utensils, washer and dryer in lower level of cabin, barbecue grill on upper cabin porch. No Smoking indoors. Pet friendly.

Area Activities (on the site or nearby): Hiking in Chimney Rock Park, fishing in river or nearby Lake Lure, miniature golf, antique/craft/souvenir shopping, restaurants and specialty food shops, sightseeing, championship golf courses, horseback riding swimming and tubing in river or Lake Lure Beach, boating and water-skiing.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our little getaway and loved it! Very accessible to everything and provided lots of privacy. Our young kids loved to walk down to the river and play in the yard. We look forward to staying here again in the future. Thank you!

My husband and I stayed at this cabin during the Dirty Dancing Festival and absolutely love it! It was very clean and well stocked. We have stayed in VRBO places before that only had 1 roll of TP, paper towels, etc, so I learned to pack these items. Absolutely not necessary here! You could hear the music from the Tiki Bar if you sat out on the upper front deck at night (which I really enjoyed), but the sound did not carry inside. Overall, it was peaceful and quiet. We hope to stay here again in the future!

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Elysium. The cabin was clean and well kept. The river down front was perfect for the kids during our down time. Everything in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock is very easily accessible from the cabin. Perfect location! The owners are great people to rent from.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

I wish we had known about this place when we started visiting the area 18 years ago. It is close to everywhere we like to go. Very peaceful and private. A great place just to "get away". Can't wait to go back in July with the family!

We have stayed here every year for the past 14 years! What a beautiful, relaxing place to get away! Close to town for country shopping, relaxing walks and swimming in the river. Also close to Chimney Rock park, Lake Lure, hiking , fishing and gem mining. Definitely one of my favorite places and the BEST people to rent from!! Highly recommend!!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Elysium for a week in August. The moment I walked into the house I couldn't get over how clean and fresh it smelled. The pictures do not give the house credit like it so deserves. It's very roomy. We had six adults and had lots of room. You are close to Chimney Rock, Chimney Rock Village, Lake Luke, Hendersonville, Ashville and Black Mountain. I lists these because we did something at all of these locations. Zen Tubing in Asheville I would highly recommend. For the shoppers we enjoyed Asheville and Hendersonville. The Lake Lure boat tour is great. Our favorite place to eat was in the Chimney Rock Village at Medina's Village Bistro. The only negative about the place that we had was the drive up to the house. It is a bit tricky. Enjoy the house. We hope to return for a visit.
