|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Efficiency apartment is located below private home, nestled on two wooded acres in gated community with rolling hills and paved roads. We are very Motorcycle-friendly.
The apartment provides everything one or two people need for a stay. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a queen bed, pull-out couch and eating area. We wash all mattress cover, pillow covers and blankets after every stay. Wi-Fi and TV/DVD with dish network service. There is a flag stone-paved outside sitting area with a table, chairs, bench and room for two hammocks. A fire pit and gas grill is on the premises for you to use. We have chickens (no roosters?) and gladly share our fresh eggs. Our chickens do make some noise, especially when they get ready to lay.
There is plenty to do in the area. Asheville’s Biltmore house, antique shopping in nearby charming towns (Hendersonville, Saluda, Tryon or Landrum), pick-your-own apples during apple season, ski Sugar or Beech Mountain, hike or rock climb Chimney Rock, or fish or swim in Lake Lure and zip-line through nature. Most of all, the reason we moved here, is the motorcycle riding. We have an abundance of twisty roads with little or no traffic, and gladly share our knowledge of roads we discovered. If you choose to do nothing or do it all, our location gives you the option.
Our neighbor hood is very private, with only a hand-full of full time residents. Our roads are perfect for walking, jogging and serious cycling, but watch out for the deer and the turkeys.
I grew up in Germany and moved to the USA in 1968 and later joined the military. I retired from the Air Force after 33 years of service. My husband still works for a major Oil Company. We moved to Lake Lure permanently four years ago. We enjoy living in an area with four seasons and with awesome motorcycle roads. Our community is secluded, with only a few full time residents. Our neighbors are also our friends. We have chickens for the enjoyment, and fresh eggs which we often share with neighbors.
Evelyn Irwin purchased this apartment in 2006
We purchased our property in this area because of my husbands love for riding motorcycles. We have put a great deal of work into our property and are very proud of what we have done. We enjoy the outdoor area of our home. Our community also allows us to have chickens. We built a very nice chicken coop and run and enjoy sitting outside watching our girls. It's better than TV. :)
Our Efficiency is only about 350 sq', but there is so much to do in our area, we feel that it is more than adequate after a long day of sight seeing and riding. We have a nice size sitting area with a small water feature where you can relax with a glass of wine or in my husbands case, a glass of Rum and a cigar.
This VRBO property is highly recommended. Well worth the drive if you are visiting nearby Lake Lure or Rutherfordton. The Irwin's are a lovely couple who have thought of everything to ensure that your vacation is perfect. The uniquely shaped octagon efficiency apartment is extremely clean & well thought out in terms of space utilization as well as delightfully decorated. There are games, books, movies, hammocks and a propane grill all there for your enjoyment. They have every standard kitchen appliance or tool you might want as well as being stocked with coffee and other staples. Forget your cream rinse or lotion? No problem, the cabin is well stocked with anything you need.
They have beautiful flower and vegetable gardens & wildlife abounds. There are steps down to the creek, that take you to the unspoiled beauty of nature. The bird feeders and houses ensure a thrill every minute watching the beautiful wild birds. Their chickens (aka as "the girls") are full of personality & lay the most delicious eggs. They have a beautiful book with information about the different varieties of chickens that you will want to review, even if you never had any interest in chickens before your stay with them.
Most of all the kindness of the Irwin's is exceptional & you will want to come back to visit them.
My husband and I stayed at Evelyn's home while in town for a wedding. I just want to say how amazing the experience was, this being our first time using VRBO. Evelyn at every step of the way was quick to respond to questions and upon arrival met us and showed us around. Now, the home was very clean and stocked with the essentials that you would have in your own home. There was even a store card for the nearby supermarket to grab a few groceries and be able to use their discounts if needed. It was both beautiful both inside and out and outside there are steps which peaked my curiosity and after getting to the bottom, it was simply refreshing to see what was there. I sincerely cannot think of one negative thing except to say we should have planned to stay longer as the few days were over too soon. We didn't interact much with Evelyn as both her and her husband were true to their words to give us our privacy but be available which was perfect. We are definitely looking into planning our next trip to this area with more days to R & R & R. Thank you for opening up your home to us Evelyn!
We really enjoyed our stay. It was quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed feeding the fish, and watching the hummingbirds and chickens. Evelyn provided fresh eggs for breakfast. The unit is beautifully decorated, very clean, and well stocked. We would definitely stay again in this beautiful home.
Very nice place to stay.
We will be back. Used this as home base for nearby sites. Kitchen is stocked with everything. Fire pit is ready for use with kindling. It is very clean and comfortable.
The apartment was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We were very happy with the accommodations. I would not hesitate staying there again.
We had a great time at Lake Lure. Evelyn was a wonderful host and the accomdations were simply beautiful. It was nice to come back and enjoy the backyard. We loved the eggs and just watching the chickens. We went horseback riding and that was so much fun, it was located about 2 miles from our accomdations. Thank yo so much for sharing your home with us.
