About Bruce Ikelheimer
I am an entrepreneur with a wide range of interests. My professional background is in environmental acoustics, but I'm also interested in lots more. I play the electric and upright bass and love cycling and hiking in the beautiful mountains here in Western North Carolina.
Bruce Ikelheimer purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Bruce Ikelheimer chose Lake Lure
We saw the view from the decks and instantly fell in love!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our house is situated just 15 feet from the water, at the bottom of a large hill. When you are here you truly feel like you left the world behind. But no worries! We have an electric tram (technically called a 'Residential Funicular') that will transport you from your car down to the house in style. Or, if you are feeling like a little exercise, you can climb the 86 stairs to the top!

We didn’t want to leave!
We spent a week at the Enchanted Cottage and had a wonderful time. You can’t beat the scenery of the mountains and lake. We loved watching the sunrise... having coffee on top of the boat deck, swimming in the lake to cool off after a pontoon boat ride or kayak excursion. Driving the boat to dinner and watching the sunset on the lake then gathering around the fire pit to make s’mores were some of our daily routines. The property is well maintained and has everything you need. We hope to be back again sometime.
The view was stunning! Between the swimming, kayaking, rope swing, zip lining, hiking and sliding rocks day trip, the kids thought it was the best vacation ever. The adults loved coffee on the many porches, reading in the hammock chairs, the beautiful sunset and family meals together. We all LOVED it so! Thank you so very much!
Great Time at Lake Lure
We had a wonderful time at the Enchanted Cottage! We have stayed there before and it is our favorite spot on the lake. It has all the supplies and essentials you need in a gorgeous setting. We enjoyed the house, the boat, the lake....and the funicular was a real treat!
Fun Family Lake Trip!
We had a great time this trip. There are tons of beds that we fit seven people, but could fit even more. The kids had tons of fun on the kayaks and on the boat. There were tons of options of board games that we played in the morning at breakfast, and a Roku with access to Netflix when we wanted to chill. The funicular was great and made it a lot easier to bring down all of our bags and groceries. The lake itself is beautiful and the house provides a great view of the water and the mountains. We recommend heading into town to go to the Village Scoop! It was the best ice cream we have had. Overall we had a great time and recommend it for everyone!
Nice house with boat
This house is a nice lake house with a great location on the lake. We had a very nice week with the whole family. The bedrooms are not large, but there is more than enough space in the house for everyone. The screened in porch was great! We spent the majority of our time on the porch. There are two kayaks, a canoe, and a pontoon boat available for use, which we were able to use multiple times during our stay. It was a great time on the lake. Our trip in May gave us the lake to ourselves, but I can imagine that the lake could become quite crowded during the summer. Bruce is a fantastic owner who is very responsive and provides plenty of information for an excellent stay. This property worked very well for a family trip or even a weekend on the lake.
Great Views and Lake Access
Awesome house and location had a great time!
